Yachting Greece is among the oldest maritime
family owned business in Greece with more than forty years presence
in the naval industry. The company was established in 1967 by
Captain George Antonatos as Ikaros Compania De Navigation, S.A. It
owned a small fleet of cargo ships that operated in the Baltic,
Mediterranean, Adriatic and Black Sea. In 1979 the Captain retired
and his son, Nikos Antonatos took over the family business. He holds
degrees from The School of Nautical Studies in Greece and The London
School of Foreign Trade.
Nikos having as a guide his father’s vast knowledge of the shipping industry on one hand, his education on the other, plus the ambition of a 27 year old (at the time) young man to put his own mark in the business, he decided that it was time to steer the company towards the new horizons of shipping which was yacht chartering in Greece at her infant stages hence the official birth of Yachting Greece. Ikaro’s fleet of cargo ships was sold and replaced with sailing and motor yachts offered for private charters.
