The Romantika II Cruise Boat
The Palikisianos family, one of the few original remaining families of Fiskardo origin, have a long tradition in seafaring dating back to 1935. Captain Christos, the grandfather of Captain Gerasimos (current captain), was carrying passengers and various cargo along the channel between Fiskardo, Ithaca and Lefkas using a small Single mast wooden boat! Hes only aid, Captain Dionisis, his son. Captain Dionisis being a visionary and driven by his love for his homeland “Kefalonia” were he grew up, and of course his love for the sea, took matters into hand and went one step forward…
The Romantika was born…
Captain Dionisis bought the “ROMANTIKA”, an 11-meter traditional greek wooden boat with an engine this time, intending to present the beauties of Kefalonia and the Ionian Sea to the arriving guests! The fast growth of tourism led to a partnership and the acquisition of a newer, better and more advance vessel, the “IFIGENIA” which was conducting daily cruises to Ithaca and Lefkas having as starting point the port of Agia Efimia. The increased demand led to the addition of a bigger even more advance vessel the “IFIGENIA EXPRESS”. During this time Captain Dionisis also had the help of his two sons, Capt. Gerasimos and Capt. Christos, who also inherited the love and the respect that Capt. Dionisis still has for the sea. In 2011 the continuous touristic growth demanded something new, something better… and the “ROMANTIKA II” was launched!
