Dry docking on Kos or nearby?

We have our boat in Volos at the moment and we are going for a 3 week trip that ends on Kos island. I want to store my boat onshore until next trip in September. Got a quote from Kos marina for 2400 incl everything. This is for 3 months. Is this a fair price or down anyone have a better options?

Whether or not it is a fair price depends on the size of your boat .

Another marina to try close to Kos is Evros on Leros. Not cheap, but excellent.
Also on the north side of the same island there is one at Partheni next to the airport. Rates are cheaper, it has a good chandlery, but it is isolated.

Link to Evros's price list is here, although it is now 2 years old:

Add VAT and lift and launch (including pressure wash) at a total of 42 per metre. Electricity and water is extra, but there are no hidden fees.

Kos prices seem expensive.

Re: Dry docking on Kos or nearby?

You got the best advice from Seawothy Lass. Both places on Leros are cheaper and safer to leave the boat than Kos.
If You need any work to be done on the boat, Leros is - in the matter of fact - the only place in Dodecanese to be considered, both pricewise and qualitywise.

Cheers

Tomasz

Try Leros Marina Evros SA (Lakki). Good price, good service.
