The web site “Faneromeni” a dream come true describes in great detail the long and meticulous restoration of Greek traditional wooden Perama type caïque. How she was converted from tourist boat to a cruising schooner.

This story should interest anyone who loves old wooden boats.

Vasilis,

What a story - if one opens on the story - a really great history of a classic boat !

G'day Vasilis. How is your genoa-setting? WOW - what a great 'link' - story - pictures & 'total' adventure about your brother Nikos & his dream - the magnificent 'Faneromeni' Thank you so much for sharing those adventures with all of us. That's no mean vessel that you have either. I'm impressed !! You might let us know what the yachts names mean. I have a Greek mate, Stylianos Collakides here in Australia but I'm not much on the history or meanings of the names. 'Thetis' ? & 'Faneromeni' ? Sure would like to know what the history is to the names & why you two brothers chose them. I'm sure that Brenda & David will appreciate the 'beaut' wooden vessel. I sure did !! Ciao, james aka 'jj-geri-hat-trick' - down-under.

Ciao, james and thank you for your kind words. Here is brief answer to your question:

'Faneromeni' is an adjective for Virgin Mary meaning "The one who was revealed". It was very common in traditional Greek boats and was her original name, Nikos did not change it.



'Thetis' is an ancient Greek sea Goddess the mother of Achilles the Homeric hero in the Iliad.
