INFORMATION ABOUT THE PREVEZA AREA
Equipped with the Aktion airport, Preveza on mainland Greece is just 25 minutes form Lefkas and is one of the busiest and largest areas for yacht sales. It only takes three hours to fly to Aktion airport from London, making it incredibly accessible for even the busiest yacht buyer. The Ionian Marina, Aktion Marina, and Cleopatra yards in Preveza have a high concentration of yachts and boats. During the off season, these yachts and boats for sale are brought ashore, making them easier to view and sell.

The names Feeling, Moody, Oyster, Northshore, Bowman, Wauquiez, Bavaria, Westerly, Beneteau, Jeanneau, Elan, and Dehler, all have holdings in Preveza, as do a range of customized yachts from the designers like Bruce Roberts.
