Check out is 9 am of final Saturday. Yachts should arrive in port the night before by 6 pm. This allows time for refueling, the check out process, and damage checks by divers. Then you can enjoy the evening in Lavrio town.
Fuel: The yacht should be re-delivered with full tanks of fuel. Please note, Lavrio does not have a fueling station, so refueling is by truck. Our base team assists you to coordinate this. The cost depends on distance and how many islands you visit under engine power. Average cost is around €350, excluding heavy use of the generator for electricity and air conditioning.
We kindly request that all our clients leave the boat in a respectable condition, as it was chartered out. Common practices include throwing out the garbage, cleaning plates and cutlery, and folding linen and towels (please leave all laundry items in one cabin).
We are happy to arrange transfers to help you easily reach the airport, Athens center, or hotel. Just let us know ahead of time.
Lavrio is an excellent starting point for sailing routes in the Cyclades. Within two hours you can reach the first island! Meanwhile, enjoy the wide choice of places to eat, relax, and have a drink.

Key Sailing Info
Sailing near Lavrio Base
Release three mooring lines (2 stern and 1 at bow) and leave them at base. Additional lines are available on board for you. Always give priority to larger vessels, such as ferry boats and cargo ships, where they are restricted in ability to maneuver in the harbor, and keep your speed below 5 knots.
Sailing hazards to know are the three reefs North, Middle and South of the Makronissi island. Also be aware of the two reefs close to the main land (cape Sounio and Ali Pasas). Kindly be aware that there is heavy traffic in the harbor area, including steamers, fishing boats and sailing yachts.
Moorings at Greek Island Marinas
At most islands, the main port expects yachts to fasten lines stern to, with the Mediterranean mooring and anchor method. Reverse in at low speed of 1 knot, to allow for gentle maneuvers. Have your fenders out – there will be limited spacing between boats, as the marinas are generally quite busy. Anchor perpendicular to the spot on the quay and avoid crossing or fouling the neighboring anchors. Try to arrive between 3 and 5 pm to secure your spot, before all the space is occupied. A full guide to Mediterranean mooring is available for you.
Moorings at Lavrio Base
Berths are situated from both sides of the L-shaped mole. When returning, go stern to and please do not use your anchor, use the forward mooring line available at the marina.
