I am looking for a place to leave the boat in June for a couple of months either in the water or in dry dock near Skiathos. We have a flight going out from Skiathos so anywhere in the area would be great. Even Volos as there are frequent ferries from there to Skiathos. Any suggestions?

The nearest yard is at Oreoi on north Evia. It has a good reputation & the adjacent harbour is good for doing pre-haul jobs.
I’m not sure how you get back to Skiathos, but I’m sure the yard will tell you.

thanks for the replies. I looked at Orei and it’s also an option but unfortunately to get to Skiathos you need to go to Agios Konstantinos on main land then get another ferry to Skiathos.
I did find a yard called Captain’s club boatyard at Kala Nera in gulf of Volos. Did anyone hear about it? It’s cheap…

Volos is very accessible from Skiathos. Several ferries a day. I've charted from Skiathos in the past but DYC shut the base so last year we hired from Volos and flew in/out of JSI. We routed back via Skiathos a couple of times to pick up out cree.
