Update from the Nisos Yard - refit 2019

Holding Tanks

Holding tanks......for a comfortable charter experience, it is vital to have a yacht fitted with (working) holding tanks.  Some operators disconnect them so they don't have any issues to contend with.  They do get blocked from time to time, especially when clients flush toilet paper down the loos.   At Nisos, every winter, we remove the holding tanks, flush them thoroughly out, and replace the waste pipes (which do get scaled up over a season or two).  It is a huge amount of work, but is the only way to have nice smelling loos which shouldn't get blocked!


Engines are fully serviced, and those that require it, removed for an overhaul and refurbishment.  Alternators, starter motors, heat exchanges, exhaust elbows, implellers, belts, turbos, injectors....there is a lot to do.

Stripes, stripes, stripes

Jeanneau Yachts.....hopefully one day they will impregnate the GRP to create the stripes on the hulls.  Every winter we need to take them off and replace them with new stripes.  During the season they get damaged by fenders and dinghies and start to look tatty.  We hate things looking tatty at Nisos, so there is no option but to cut out the damaged areas and replace the stripes.  Another time consuming, but necessary job...

Launch Day

Such a beautiful spring day in Greece for launching the Nisos fleet!  It's great to see them going in the water after their long winter refits.  The Nisos Team have done an amazing job in getting them ready and looking so wonderful!
