“Sophia Star” is a sea legend and one of the most trustworthy vessels that have been constructed in Greece.
Our beautiful “Sophia Star” is one of a kind traditional handcrafted boat – Listed as a Greek historical monument, measuring 31 meters in length and with a capacity of up to 150 passengers.
It can travel safely in all the Cyclades islands and can host any type of events, such as birthday & bachelor parties, corporate team building events, wedding ceremonies or just spend a great day in the sun, exploring the unique beauties of the Aegean sea!
It was originally built in 1955 as a fishing boat that would sail to the Mediterranean Sea, by one of the most famous shipbuilders of the 20th century, Mr. Psarros. After 40 years at sea, it was purchased by Macedonian Yachts in Thessaloniki where it began a two-year-long transformation of the boat, from a fishing boat to a passenger ship while retaining her traditional line.
In 2000 “Sophia Star” has been declared by the Greek Ministry of Culture as a Historic Monument, making it the only passenger ship in Greece to receive this honor (all boat types included).
In 2016, it was bought by Faroupos family and since then it operates as a daily cruise boat in Mykonos island, with an obligation to never change its “character”, as it is currently the oldest passenger ship in the Greek seas.
Today “Sophia Star” is fully modernized and equipped with all sorts of amenities and facilities in order to provide to all its guests a safe, pleasant and memorable cruising experience.
