With extensive experience and proven records in Superyacht charter and processes, Maria K. Bakalakou is making a comeback in the industry, after a break close by Arab Royalties and their fleet. “A great love for the yachting community and innovative approach makes us happy to partner with a prominent multicultural team of Maritime Professionals and offer a butler-service in charter and brokerage schemes, commercial and technical administration.
The brand benefits from two generations of fresh ideas and notable history in Superyacht refits/retrofits, engineering, and interventions for sustainable solutions”.
The new brand was created in the era of geographical and social restrictions, however, in the correct time for an innovative approach and Home-oriented to support the local economy and businesses.

Regardless of how small our brand is, our clientele always gets a supervisor treatment where we organize, guide, and mentor projects. We work on the full spectrum of Superyacht Services, undertaking risk management services, public relations, and by always being proactive. The Technical Station named ART is inspired by the Arabiya Restoration Time motto, while implements an R&D segment in development, to offer Technical Services, Technical Administration, and progressively technology transforming Superyachts to green units. The ART venture is inspired and dedicated to the Arabic world due to our fondness and appreciation. As we need always to remember that it is Arabs who defined the Superyacht industry in the sizes of today, while refit has been an ordinary process for the Arabic Nation competitively to the Western Owners.
Determined to be part of an eco-conscious era, yet amidst restrictions and uncertainties, this is the perfect time for establishing a regionally oriented business. The yachting industry needs green energy innovation and technology to meet TIER III regulations, making Superyachts noiseless units and managing waste with zero footprints in the environment; because such would meet the needs of the present without compromising the future. We have already appraised the shipping and cruising industries make that leap forward reducing carbon emissions in the air and land by reducing their fuel use. The law comes for the yachting industry to force compliance with green policies to achieve sustainable goals, minimizing noise and pollution to the environment, succeeding in fewer emissions, introducing a feasible electrical power innovative engineering for the existing Superyachts, and timing is the best to exploit feasible solutions.

This occurs in teamwork with traders of modern and applicable technology. We shall also exploit options for utilization of new materials such as synthetic silk, excessive glass at no penalty for weight and other restrictions and so much more in retrofitting.
