About us

Polco sailing is a family run yacht charter company, founded in 1985 by Nick Lagogiannis, an aircraft and maritime engineer whose love for sailing made him give up engineering for the sea. The company was based in Athens and rapidly grew to a fleet of 8 monohull sailing boats.

In 2002, we discovered Milos and instantly fell in love with the island's beauties. We then started organizing daily semi-private and private cruises to Kleftiko and the nearby islands as well as multiday skippered charters.

Since 2012, the company is under the management of Pol Lagogiannis, Nick's son, who moved the company base permanently to Milos and made it become one of the islands' leading cruise operators. In our first 17 years of cruising around Milos, we have over 40,000 satisfied customers!!!

With four monohull sailing boats, a 40' catamaran, a 10-meter motorboat and professional skippers our aim is to provide high quality and personalized services and make cruising a relaxed and enjoyable experience.

Nick Lagogiannis

Originally a mechanical engineer, Captain Nick fell in love with sailing and founded Polco yachts at 1985.

Having sailed extensively around the world and being an excellent handy-man, he is the best Captain you can find in Milos!

He considers calm seas boring and prefers to sail only on a very VERY windy day.
