Introducing Spiros Salvanos, the founder of  SAL YACHTS Shipping, Yachting & Tourist Enterprises:

Having lived for ten years in Germany and France, where he studied Business Administration, Commerce & Foreign Languages, he set up a Travel & Shipping Agency in Corfu Port in 1971. Then Spiros became a Ship & Yacht Agent to commercial ships & crewed charter yachts, entering the Yachting world.

In 1976 he acquired his first crewed Sailing Charter Yachts, the classic Schooners: AGENA & ODYSSEUS, establishing at the same time SAL YACHTS, building up in in the next years a fleet of mainly bare boat charter yachts with length from 30 to 52 feet. S. Salvanos was not only a Licensed Open Seas Yachtsman for both Sailing & Motor Yachts but also an intrepid Aeronaut, an FAA-USA & Greek Licensed Private Pilot (VFR/IFR) from 1985 and one of the first private aircraft owners in Greece. In fact, he brought by himself his last aircraft PIPER ARROW 24 from USA in the decade of nineties flying over USA, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Germany, Italy arcing over the Atlantic close to the Arctic circle before reaching Corfu Greece.

His aircrafts facilitated his charter yacht fleet and clients by flying frequently from Corfu to Preveza, Zakynthos & Cephalonia transferring charterers or providing them with technical support, if needed.

His company, SAL YACHTS, became one from the pioneers in Yacht Chartering in Greece.

One of his Sailing Charter Yachts "PERITHIA", a BAV44, did a Circumnavigation in 2010 passing from the North Passage (instead of Panama), north of Canada, the Arctic, through Bering Straits & Alaska https://voilesetvoiliers.ouest-france.fr/croisiere/grande/corfou-corfou-via-le-nord-ouest-en-bavaria-44-e5a27bb6-58d5-724c-a457-91046fb384e4
