The Violeta Experience is definitely an unforgettable, nautical experience!
Violeta is a traditional wooden Varkalas, built following the standards of the rich maritime tradition of Syros.
This type of boat was used in the 1900s, in order to transport people & goods to the Aegean Islands, as well as to the mainland Greece.
Meticulously hand built for the last 15 years, Violeta was finished in February 2021 (New Building First Ship Sea Launch March 2021).
The entire design is enhanced as she’s been handcrafted, using exclusively Iroko African Wood, while all floor surfaces are laid up with original teak wood.
Violeta has a full sailing capability with a main sail, front sail & middle storm sail.
Its’ total length is 13.5 meters (44 ft) incorporating the latest technology (New FPT 250 HP clean ECO Diesel engine).
The main guests will enjoy 2 double bed traditional style cabins, a fully furnished kitchen & a separate toilet. Violeta has a lounge at bow with a 5 seater table & a 2 seater table at stern, that can seat up to 6 people. Complete your experience on board with a panoramic sea view from the cockpit, as 6 people can seat inside. Lastly, built for lovers of the great outdoors, it has a perfect sunbathing area, large enough for 6 people.
“A caïque is a traditional fishing boat
usually found among the waters of the
Ionian or Aegean Sea!”
Sustainability is key in the construction of Violeta. This is why she is equipped with solar panels that provide the
required electrical energy throughout the day, while
reducing the carbon emissions, by not using a diesel
generator for electricity needs. She carries a tender with
capacity for 4 people & she is fully air conditioned. She has a big swimming platform. She also caters a fully remote controlled hydraulic passerelle, for an easy & risk-free access on board.
