Hi yachty fraternity,
Our life raft is due a service soon,the previous owner had it done in Levkas,(don't know if it was actually there or it was sent away)anyone au fait with other places or do they all get sent to Athina wherever you do it?
Turkey, are they into that kinda thing there,as our first port of call is the sailmaker in Fetidye?
Cheers

Think you will find the service centre is in Athens. Our liferaft was serviced there last year. The company is Cosmar in Piraeus. Collected from and delivered back to Corfu through the chandler in Gouvia.

Liferaft Service in Levkas

Ionian Marine Safety based in Levkas does liferaft servicing locally. Based about a mile behind the marina heading out towards Nidri. Used him last year to do our Seago 4 man raft.

One of only two approved Seago service agents in the Med, but he does everything from the cheapest ones up to Avon ones.

Cost 180 Euro and he was very happy for me to be present during the process. Recommended.

Nikos runs it (a one man band) who speaks pretty good English.
Tel: +30 264 5025340
ioniansafety@hol.gr (woudn't recommend e-mail - he's not good at answering e-mails!)

Another vote for Nikos. Good service. When I was there he had an inflated Seago 4-man in the showroom. Good to be able to see what was actually inside the box.

They collect and return along the Bodrum - Gocek coast and probably beyond too. Easy people to deal with.

Can you remember how much they charged? Our 6 man liferaft due for service and wary of ending up paying too much as it would then make it cheaper to buy a new one!
Still trying to contact Alyssa recommendation in Levkas.

We are based in Gouvia and I presume you mean BoatWorld chandler.
