Gregory's arithmetic is very good, too good in fact! It's his memory that that makes it expensive.......We wintered in Asprakis boatyard last winter and they were all unfailingly helpful and friendly. The facilities are basic, but the yard is priced accordingly, and there is an excellent chandler in Aegina town. They have excellent engineers on call and the work they were doing on other boats looked careful and of high quality. Most people in the yard were regulars who were very happy there. The only problem is that access is tricky with strong north winds, especially if you have a deep draft. Gregory is not very good at arithmetic so check the calculation of his bill.
Sounds to me like you need to make alternative arrangements. Plenty of time, so why stick with a place which you may live to regret.We have just arranged to have our Moody 425 lifted out and stored for next winter at asprakis yard.
Does anyone have experience of this yard?any tips on nearby inexpensive accommodation?Or any other inside knowledge?
Thanks in anticipation
Exactly, they charged me 800!!! euros extra for launching, claiming that they have to move other boats to do that.Be very carefull with this yard very poor rep will charge a lot more before you launch
