35 years of history and expertise is what makes Riginos Yachts a unique and value-driven company.

1982

Founded by Peter Riginos, the company was built on the principle of always putting our clients first. Started by importing water sport equipment and ski boats from the United States and continued its presence by importing several European brands of sport cruisers to the Greek market until the late 80’s.

1990

The high demand of 30-50 foot cruisers and the vibrant brokerage market led us to sell the water-sport division and focus on the luxury cruising market of newly-built and second-hand boats. Throughout the years, our business has evolved greatly, by gradually becoming importers of very well-known European brands such as Lagoon, Windy, Nimbus and lately Jeanneau & Prestige.

In the meantime, our used boat sales and purchase department grew tremendously with one of the largest used boat databases in the country and multiple annual sales.

2010

We ventured into yacht chartering and quickly became members of the Mediterranean Yacht Broker’s Association; the most prestigious group of yacht brokers in the world. Our charter department has been doubling its revenues year-on-year thanks to our very satisfied repeat customers.

2012

Being dealers of Novurania RIB tenders for many years, we gradually started seeing a gap in the overall tender market in Greece and in 2012 we decided to cater to the market’s needs by acquiring the dealerships of several tender manufacturers. We are now exclusive distributors of Sacs, Novurania, Castoldi, BRIG and Highfield and are proud to be the highest selling Yacht Tender Center in the country.

2014

In 2014 we ventured in the luxury sailing catamaran market and now have a department dedicated to catamaran charter management which comprises of 12 brand new boats and three fleet bases in Greece. Our sailing business is branded as White Sails and is considered one of the leading luxury catamaran operators in the country.

2016

We purchased the moulds and intellectual property right of the Superonda and Magna RIBs, two of the most famous and iconic inflatable boats in the Greek market with a successful history of over fifty years. The venture has been incorporated as a separate, sister company called Onda Ribs.
