TARSANAS SHIPYARD IN SYROS
Tarsanas is the oldest shipyard in Syros, and the oldest active shipyard of its kind in Greece. Also one of the oldest companies on the island, which has been active since 1860 until this day occupying the same site in the port of Syros. Now run by the fourth-generation from the traditional shipbuilder families Mavrikou-Tzortzi.
The creation of wooden hulls is an art; it reflects the feelings, the ideas and the vision of the artist-creator. It is a living workshop of ideas and debates.
Today it offers services to vessels from sailing boats, fishing boats, small cruisers etc from all over Greece and overseas. It’s an interesting place for visitors to the island to visit since it is one of the last small shipyards of its kind in Greece.
