~ Caring for your Pride and Joy~ What if the family values of mutual trust, honest communication and unselfish care were our daily compass for our actions? Wouldn’t things be easier and more pleasant? Yes, they would. And that is exactly what we work hard every day. To make you feel a member of a family that will never let you down, no matter the difficulties, no matter the challenges.Thank you for being here and we will be more than happy to welcome you at our boatyard. Artemis Leros Boatyard is owned and operated by one of the oldest and well-known traditional shippingfamilies of the Dodecanese – the Karpathakis family. For many years, our members have been operatingwith small wooden cargo boats before commercializing and even today we continue that long traditionwith our modern steel cargo ships with Mr. Mikes Karpathakis being the Master & Chief Engineer, NikosKarpathakis, his son, the Shipmaster and Evgenios Karpathakis the Chief Officer. The creation of the boatyard has been our father’s Nicholas dream, who has been a successful captain andalways wanted to create a very special boatyard in Leros since 1965, when the first sailing boats begun toarrive to the island for pleasure. And some decades later, the “young” Karpathakis generation made hisdream comes true, by creating Artemis Leros Boatyard.
