Cruise the most beautiful beaches of Rhodes with Captain Nikolas!

Monachus is a handmade boat and was constructed in Symi, an island of Dodecanese. It is one of the traditional Greek boats called “trehantiri”, a sailing boat first introduced by Greeks. This kind of boat can only be seen in Aegean Sea. Monachus boat and its captain have many years of experience in journeys. The first journey of Monachus was in 1981 as a traditional Greek fisher boat. After 13 years of daily fishing around Greek islands, it was converted into a cruise ship. Since then, thousands of tourists have visited the most beautiful beaches of Rhodes Island!
