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 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 become one of the islands’ leading cruise operators. In our first 20 years of cruising around Milos, we have over 50,000 satisfied customers!!!
With four monohull sailing boats, two Lagoon catamarans, 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.
Nobody likes being in a crowded place. On our day cruises we only take up to 10 passengers in our smaller yachts OR only 14 passengers in our spacious 55′ sailing yacht so that we can offer you the personal service POLCO is known for.
At POLCO we love families! And since we have 4 yachts, we will always look to have one boat exclusively to accommodate them. You will also find children lifejackets for all ages, as well as activities for our little friends.

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 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!
An amazing captain with kind character and great knowledge of sailing, motor boats, diving, fishing and first aid. His love of the sea is only surpassed by his love for Milos! He loves telling pirate stories when visiting Kleftiko caves. A favourite for all kids!
A crowd favourite, Stavros, aka ‘Grizli’ is a truly amusing and talented skipper. A competition sailor, lifeguard, children swimming instructor and carpenter(!) he has been sailing with Polco since 2018. He loves a good joke and a great underwater photo!
