Santo Marine- Shipyard, Maintenance, Boat Repairs, Sailboats

SantoMarine-2Santo Marine is a project come to life, by bringing together the most skilled and experienced boat makers on the island of Santorini.

We created the only shipyard of its kind in a rather extensive radius, capable of building certain types of boats.
We are specialized in custom performance yachts and fast GRP passenger vessels
Our craftsmen have more then 30 years of experience in fiberglass building as well as in composite constructions and repairs with vacuum or infusion.
Customized yachts and sailboats, is another filed of expertise that we are proud of. We pay enormous attention to detail including the interior woodwork, which we are proud to say, it’s one of its kind!

Our personnel is highly…

  • Skilled
  • Knowledgeable
  • Experienced
  • Organized
  • Updated in their own field
  • Enthusiastic
  • And… they really love what they do!
  • All the above, apply to our carefully selected third party collaborators.

Services

Construction
We are specialized in designing and building custom fast passenger vessels and sailing yachts. Our passenger vessels are in majority GRP fiberglass polyester based. We have introduced a completely new process of building boats, including custom design, engineering projects. Development and assembling, from start to finish. All building phases are rendered and finalized always based on the clients own specifications combined with our high standards of ship building and engineering. The construction of passenger vessels is based on fiberglass and polyester application and installation which are hand laid using special rollers equipment for the per-impregnation of the fabric reinforcements. We are also very experienced in advanced composite structures and epoxy resin applications with the use of vacuum techniques

Repairs
The experienced staff and personnel of the shipyard can handle any kind of fiberglass, epoxy or traditional repair issues. We have divided and dedicated teams to undertake specific repairs.
Dry Dock repair services are available in the island of Thira (Santorini) and the general south Cycladic area. Emergency repairs are available on location.

Maintenance / Wintering
Maintenance services are available throughout the entire Winter. We can undertake any level of process that is required, even stripping and reconstructing the vessel from near point zero. In addition to that, we can provide the necessary consulting services, about all the work that could or should be done on the boat, always based on your requirements.

Ship Building Techniques

SantoMarine-3We have adopted innovative techniques in all aspects of fiberglass construction, especially in composite epoxy technology applications of vacuum or resin infusion.

Application of Vacuum
All the reinforcements are pre-impregnated by a rolling workstation and laid unfolded before drying so the vacuum treatment is then applied. We mainly use uni-directional carbon fiber and biaxials as an additive to strengthen the apply-able material.

The process aims to:
Use of less resin ration in the laminated surfaces and the reduction of voids producing better mechanical properties, while reducing the overall weight of the material.

What is the result?SantoMarine-4

  • Longer life expectancy
  • Better behavior in water
  • Higher resistance levels
  • Reduces the need for frequent maintenance
  • Reduces the cost of maintenance
  • Safer material output for extreme conditions
  • Lighter weight
  • Allows easier and faster boat construction
  • Reduces dramatically the time needed for service and repairs
