1962: The beginning
Bekris Shipyards "raised their sails" long before their actual establishment. It was in the early ‘60s, when Fanis Bekris – an “old batch" shipbuilder - driven by his passion, started offering shipbuilding and ship conversion services. In the next years that came by, some famous shipbuilding projects have been signed by Fanis. Craftmanship, commitment to excellence and passion helped him transform years of experience into a modern unit for the maintenance, repair and wintering of luxury yachts. Thus, in 1985 he founded the “Th. Berkis & Co. Ltd.” and chose the strategically located island of Salamis and the Ambelakia area as the commercial base of operations.
