Collaboration of PrivatSea with BCA College

Angela Karali (Deck & Engine Procurement), Ann Montebello (Hotel Department)

PrivatSea executives Ann Montebello (Hotel Department) and Angela Karali (Deck & Engine Procurement) were guest speakers in the Seminar for Procurement and Logistics organized for BCA college students on 16th February 2019. BCA college was founded 49 years ago and is the oldest college in Greece offering British University Degrees in 35 Bachelors and Masters academic programs that have been designed according to the needs of the international market.
Ann and Angela introduced PrivatSea Yachting, PrivatSea Projects and PrivatSea Marine Services each providing a distinct service to the yachting industry while working closely with each other to create a fully integrated service to Owners and Captains. This introduction to the yachting industry was found to be very interesting and made the difference from the standard logistic and procurement procedures that are generally followed by bulk carriers. The students showed a great interest for the fast-growing yachting industry and raised many questions concerning the operation of the yachts and the approach of Owner’s needs starting from the design and maintenance to crewing, safety and insurance, technical, agency and voyage services, sales and charter, procurement and logistics.

Neraida Floating Museum visits Leonidio after 40 years

Neraida Floating Museum sails back to Leonidio, almost 40 years after her last visit and will be open to welcome visitors from the 1st until the 8th of September 2015. An educational program for children aged 6 to 12 will be carried on board daily 10:30 to 11:30.

 The passenger vessel “Neraida” was built as “Laurana” in 1939 at the Cantieri Navali Del Quarnaro Shipyards in the then Italian city of Fiume (today Rijeka, Croatia). She was used for coastal shipping routes at the Adriatic Sea and as a rescue ship during World War II. After she was captured by the British, she was used for the coastal service between Malta and Syracuse.

 In 1949 she was purchased by John Latsis and, after restoration works, she was routed in the Argosaronic Gulf line and renamed “Neraida” (which means fairy in Greek). This route, that includes Aegina, Methana, Poros, Hydra, Hermioni and Spetses, was serviced by the “Neraida” for about 25 years, carrying locals and tourists. Frequently, the route was expanded, in order to include other destinations as well, such as Leonidion, Monemvasia and Epidavros.

After her withdrawal from the line in 1974, she remained ashore for about 35 years without being taken for scrap, as her owner John Latsis recognized her importance for his first steps in the business world. In 2007, four years after her owner’s death, the “Neraida” was transported to NCP Shipyards at Sibenik, Croatia, for her conversion into a floating museum. Refurbishment works were completed in 2010 and the vessel returned to the Greek waters.

In the summer of 2013 the vessel raised the Greek flag again and in September she once again sailed for her traditional route : Spetses, Hermioni, Hydra, Poros, Methana and Aegina. As a museum, she welcomed thousands of visitors, presenting her owner’s history as well as her own. Until today 28.000 people have visited the historical vessel.

Neraida will be berthed in Leonidio in collaboration with the Municipality of South Kynouria, as part of the cultural events for the Feast of Eggplant, held on Saturday, August 29th 2015. For more information, please visit the following websites:
