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 tours and private boat tours and cruises to Kleftiko and the nearby islands of Kimolos and Poliegos as well as multi-day 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 the islands’ leading cruise operator. In our first 21 years of cruising around Milos, we have over 70,000 satisfied customers!!!

With two Lagoon catamarans, three monohull sailing boats,  a 10-meter motorboat, and professional skippers and crew, our aim is to provide high quality and personalized services and make cruising a relaxed and enjoyable experience.


At Polco, your satisfaction comes first. We treat our guests as we would like to be treated, with love and respect. Our cruises are original and fun.


Small groups

Nobody likes being in a crowded place. On our day cruises, we only take up to 10 passengers in our smaller yachts OR only 18 passengers in our spacious 44′ catamaran and 55′ sailing yacht, a number well below the boats’ registered capacity, so that we can offer you that extra leg space and the personal service POLCO is known for.


A cruise for everyone

Our cruise portfolio includes options for every taste. Whether you want to see everything in a day sailing around Milos and visiting Poliegos, OR you want to take it slow and explore Milos caves with our dinghy. You can also choose either cruise with a sailing boat OR a catamaran!
And for those speed enthusiasts or if time is an issue, our rib is ideal to see things on a half-day cruise.


Sailing and activities

At POLCO we take pride in our sailing. All our skippers are competition sailors and
sailing enthusiasts. Come with us and live a true sailing experience.

But also when we are anchored, explore Milos’s crystal clear waters with the snorkeling gear available aboard or try our Stand-Up-Paddleboarding.



We love a great photo and an amazing video! Our yachts are equipped with the latest GoPro cameras and underwater domes to capture your favourite moments. On occasions, we will also fly our drone to get your photo from above! If you are looking for that great Instagram photo, then we are full of ideas to make your feed special.

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, he is the best Captain you can find in Milos. He considers calm seas boring and prefers to sail only on a very windy day!

Pol Lagogiannis

Manager & Skipper

Pol started sailing at the age of 5 and became a professional skipper at 17. He is the manager of Polco sailing but can’t stay away from what he calls his larger office, Kleftiko!

His excellent knowledge of the island and great communication skills, in English, Spanish, French and Italian make cruising with him guaranteed success!

Aggelos Solomos

Skipper DANI L.

Aggelos was initially intented to be our motorboat captain but we soon moved him to our sailing boats so that we could enjoy him in Kleftiko every day! A member of Polco sailing since 2021,  he is an experienced captain with great knowledge of sailing, motor boats, diving, fishing and first aid. Most importantly he has an admirable personality with solid principles, kindness and tranquility. He loves telling pirate stories when visiting Kleftiko caves. A favourite for all kids!

Giorgos Saramantis


It all started with an impressive belly-flop to retrieve a matress from the sea in 2018…  Since then Giorgos has moved from a deckhand to an amazing skipper but mostly has moved deep into our hearts and is an important member of our family. Although the youngest member of our skipper team, his experience and perception of the boats and sailing is admirable. Skilful, safe, kind-hearted and super fun you will be very lucky to sail with him.

Forrest Longenbaugh


If there were more people with Forrest’s mentality this world would be a better place! Our American friend came for a week to vacation in Milos in 2022 and fell in love with Polco same as we fell in love with him! Our aim is to keep him in Greece for many years to come…maybe even find him a Greek wife 🙂  Fun, smiley, kind and always eager to show people a good time he is a joy to sail with!


Georgina Evaggelinou


Georgina has been with the Polco team since 2022 and we feel extremely lucky to have her.  The cutest hostess (or second captain as she likes to be called) in Milos, she makes our lives brighter with her smile and positivity. She loves to make shrimp pasta and hates germs, that’s why she will disinfect every corner of the catamaran every day 🙂  In the winter she is a talented dancer so look out for her coz one day she will be famous!

Panos Mileounis

MIA Crew

One of our latest additions, Panos was introduced to sailing and boating this year and he has adapted exceptionally well. Hard working, sociable and smiley and a 100% Polco mentality, it feels like he is part of the family for years. A fan of reggae music (he even had dreads) he has a serious party mentality and we are priviliged to have him in our team!

Dina Digka


Those who pick the Round of Milos with the catamaran will have the pleasure of sailing with Dina! A 2023 entry for but here to stay, Dina is the heart of MIA crew and will get in your hearts too with her humour, smile and positive vibes. Dina loves a good beat and downtempo music will put her to sleep as she likes to say. Her BBQ chicken is the best in  Milos!
