About us

Mission

AND PHILOSOPHY

We are experts in our field and are here to respond to all owner and charterer requirements with responsibility and efficiency. We recognise the importance of deadlines, particularly within a marine sphere and place extreme attention and focus to provide a timely service to fit within the multiple constraints of yacht schedules. The Oceda team is available ‘around-the-clock’, providing instant access to knowledgeable and fully-trained staff, who are committed to delivering excellent service to clients wherever their yacht is in Greece, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We are here to enhance our clients’ lifestyle and to make their Greek yachting experience seamless. No task is too small, no task is impossible.

We provide a complete yacht agency service from arrival to departure with a network of trusted professionals throughout Greece. Our team of specialists are on hand to assist with all formalities necessary to enter and cruise in Greek waters including all immigration procedures.

We are also able to handle more complex issues of law and insurance which we tackle with both our in-house legal team and international maritime legal or insurance experts on a case by case basis to ensure peace of mind for our clients.
