The All-New Volvo XC90



In 1979, Aristotle Onassis and his close partner Vassilis Lefakinis (Bill) decided to bring yachting charter to Greece; Bill was considered as one of the ‘top guns’ in maritime tourism globally. For the realization of this project, Aristotle and Bill invited many famous Americans and celebrities from around the world and yachted them in the Greek islands by using the yacht 'Christina' and other leading Greek and non-Greek owned yachts of the time. Personalities such as J. F. Kennedy, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Bo Derek and Hugh Hefner along with his ‘bunnies’ enjoyed the Greek islands. The goal had been achieved, as the media’s spotlight started falling onto our beautiful islands while the most recognized journalists around the world were making tributes for them.

yachting 1One year later, 'Yachting' magazine was founded, to satisfy the lifestyle needs of all those celebrities. The magazine’s context was dedicated to yachting chartering and to celebrities from all over the world, with special emphasis given to the beauty and the potential of the Greek seas and islands. ‘Yachting’ was the platform for many Greek star-journalists of the most popular TV channels and newspapers to start their career. Undoubtedly, the magazine holds a unique place in the Modern Greek-Press era.

yachting 2In 1995, the magazine’s reins changed hands and a new name, 'Sea and Yachting', was given to it. The success kept growing. With the sole aim of promoting Greece, the Editorial Team along with the former King Constantine made the first moves to bring the Olympic Games back to Greece. During that time, the Team never hid our deep love for sailing which was a relatively unknown sport in our country and, hence, the athletes had insufficient financial support. Through ‘Yachting’ pages and a series of actions, both offshore and racing sailing were promoted. The Team also stood by Nikos Kaklamanakis, the well-known Greek champion, supporting him actively.

In 2002, feeling its readers’ needs and holding on its self-evolving character, the magazine was renamed to 'Yachting Capital'. Shortly afterwards, yachting was adopted by the elite Greek businessmen and became their passion, lifestyle and the place of their business meetings. ‘Yachting Capital’ has since been established as the only magazine that businessmen carry from their office to their yacht and from there to their home. It is the media which provides on a monthly basis comprehensive information on the luxury lifestyle, the top-class galas and the expensive gadgets while, at the same time, gives a detailed presentation of the leading-edge mega yachts sailing the seas or being under construction in shipyards around the world.

Η Ελλάδα στην κορυφή του κόσμου

Η Ελλάδα συνεχίζει και βρίσκεται στην κορυφή του κόσμου με τη ναυτιλία και τον τουρισμό να είναι οι πρωταγωνιστές καθώς αυτοί οι δύο κλάδοι είναι που γνωρίζουν την μεγαλύτερη άνθηση διατηρώντας εκπληκτικούς ρυθμούς ανάπτυξης τα τελευταία χρόνια καθώς επίσης είναι και αυτοί που προσελκύουν τις μεγαλύτερες επενδύσεις τόσο εγχώρια όσο και από ξένους επενδυτές.

Ο ελληνικός τουρισμός βρίσκεται στο επίκεντρο του ενδιαφέροντος καθώς προσκαλεί με την απόδοσή του ξένα funds για επενδύσεις. Με αφορμή και τη ‘χρυσή βίζα’ που δίνεται σε όσους επενδύουν στα ακίνητα στην Ελλάδα, έχουμε δει τεράστια αύξηση επενδύσεων ιδιαίτερα από Ιράν και Κίνα. Οι τελευταίοι μάλιστα έχουν μεγαλοπρεπή σχέδια για τα νησιά των Κυκλάδων και πιο συγκεκριμένα τη Νάξο, την οποία θέλουν να την κάνουν τις Μπαχάμες της Ελλάδας.

Η Ελληνική ναυτιλία, από την άλλη, αναδείχθηκε για ακόμη μία φορά παγκόσμια υπερδύναμη στην υφήλιο. Καταρχάς, οι Έλληνες πλοιοκτήτες ελέγχουν ποσοστό 16% του παγκόσμιου tonnage. Ο στόλος που ανήκει σε Έλληνες επιχειρηματίες είναι 5.211 πλοία και 159,9 εκατ. Gt. Μία σύντομη ανάλυση περιγράφει ότι περίπου το 65% του ελληνόκτητου στόλου ανήκει στους 40 μεγαλύτερους Έλληνες εφοπλιστές.

Βλέπουμε δηλαδή ότι η Ελλάδα ξαναγιεννέται και δεν αποφέρει απλά ικανοποιητικά αποτελέσματα αλλά σημειώνει πολύ σημαντικές επιτυχίες με το να βρίσκεται στην κορυφή του κόσμου. Το μέλλον ανήκει δικαιωματικά σε αυτούς τους δύο κλάδους αλλά και σε άλλους που θα ακολουθήσουν…

Greece at the Top of the world


Greece is still at the top of the world with shipping and tourism being the protagonists, since these two sectors are the ones with the greatest boom, keeping the growth rates in the last few years. These two sectors attract the largest investments both domestically and by foreign investors.

Greek tourism is at the forefront of interest as it invites foreign funds to invest. On the occasion of the 'golden visa' given to those who invest in real estate in Greece, we have seen a huge increase in investments, particularly from Iran and China. The latter even have grand plans for the Cycladic islands and more specifically Naxos, which they want to make the Bahamas of Greece.

On the other hand, Greek shipping once again become a world superpower in the world. Firstly, Greek shipowners control 16% of the world tonnage. The fleet owned by Greek businessmen is 5,211 ships and 159,9 million Gt. A brief analysis describes that about 65% of the Greek-owned fleet belongs to the 40 largest Greek shipowners.

Greece is rejuvenated and does not yield just satisfactory results, but it has very significant successes in being at the top of the world. The future belongs right to these two sectors but also to others sectors which will follow in the next few years ...
