Hauling Out in Greece or Turkey

I need to haul out our boat in Greece or Turkey and am looking for a *reasonably" priced marina to do it. We hit something underwater and I've shattered our P bracket that holds our prop shaft in place.

I figure I can sail just about anywhere in Greece or Turkey (currently located in Mykonos, Greece) but I'd like to make it in one shot as I can no longer use the port engine.

We are a catamaran (Lagoon 55) whose dimensions are:
Length: 55ft
Beam: 30ft
Draft: 4ft
Weight: 28,000 lbs

So we can't go just anywhere.

Any advice is much appreciated. I just e-mailed some marinas in Marmaris, Goecek & Bodrum.

Thanks,

James.

Re: Hauling Out in Greece or Turkey

Have you considered Leros, where there are two marinas/yards where you could haul out? See the World Cruising Wiki (Leros - a Cruising Guide on the World Cruising and Sailing Wiki) for contact details. Leros would be an easy day's sailing, probably on a beam reach, for you from Mykonos.

Re: my earlier posting, if you check the Evros Leros Marina page on the Wiki you'll see a photo I took of a catamaran being lifted out in their new travel lift, which can take up to 160 tonnes.

Re: Hauling Out in Greece or Turkey

Glad to be of help, James. If you do wind up spending some time in Leros, treat yourself to a meal at Dimitris O Karaflas (Dimitri the Bald) taverna on the headland above the anchorage at Vromolithos. Apart from the stunning views, he dishes up some of the best food we've had in Greece.
