Fraser Yachts opens new office in Athens


International brokerage Fraser Yachts has opened a new office in the Greek capital, Athens. The new base marks the company’s 17th office worldwide.

The new team will provide client support for sales, charter, new-build constructions, management and crew placement in Greece.

Raphael Sauleau, CEO, Fraser Yachts said: We already work with many Greek and Eastern Mediterranean-based clients across all of our services, whether as owners, charterers, captains or crew. But  importantly our new team in Athens now increases our ability to be with those clients exactly when they need us and more often.”

The expansion seems to have come at a perfect time. Greece is currently one of the most popular charter destinations for Fraser’s clients this year, second only to Italy. The Mediterranean nation has accounted for 18% of all charter weeks booked by its clients in 2022.

[Greece] offers an exceptional infrastructure for yacht owners of all size ranges and indeed for their captains and crew”, said Vassilis Fotilas, sales broker, Fraser Yachts Greece Management. “Our physical presence today, acknowledges and reinforces our place as an integral part of that infrastructure and the complete offering of support for all our clients, no matter how they enjoy their yachting.”

Sauleau added:I think it is befitting that in the year we are so proud to celebrate our landmark 75 years of support, guidance and service for clients worldwide, that we now open the doors to our 17th and newest location, in what is not only the birthplace of democracy but all things maritime.”
