Μία μέλισσα μέλι ου ποιεί
One bee alone does not make honey (ancient Greek phrase)
The Christina is a family-run business, in the very best Greek tradition. Spanning 3 generations, we all contribute in our own way.
The Captain of the Christina and the founder of the business. Having started helping his father, Babis, with the small family boat in 1976 by taking tourists on cruises to the local islands, Stelios had always dreamed of owning a traditional wooden sailing boat. In 2000, his dream became reality when he bought the Christina. Stelios is the skipper, mechanic, engineer, team leader and driving force behind the team.
Stelios and Jane’s two sons, Harry and Christopher, have been keen crew members pretty much since they were born, and join the team on board at weekends and on the long school summer holidays. Harry is an ace-fisherman and particularly likes catching sea-bream for the crew’s dinner. Christopher is more often found downstairs in the ship’s kitchen, helping with the washing up!
Possibly the cutest member of the team, Alfa is our 5-year old crossbreed. He likes nothing more than chilling out with guests on board, finding the shady spots to take a nap and entertaining the younger guests with his high-fives. You can follow him and his adventures on Instagram @alfalefkada
