Greek sailing holiday company vyra.com has received funding from PJ Tech Catalyst and Driin Holdings in order to further develop its services, the company announced late last month.
The newly established firm organizing sailing holidays and offering boat rentals via its online platform is active in Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Italy, France and Spain, and offers over 9,500 boat options while making hiring procedures easy, quick and affordable. Launched in 2016, the company invites holidaymakers to plan their sailing trip in three steps: choose a boat, enter their details and pay online.
PJ Tech Catalyst, a venture capital fund set up by Piraeus Bank and the European Investment Fund, will aid vyra.com in its efforts to open up to new markets, develop fresh applications and create additional packages.
“We do not envision becoming another agent in the emerging sailing holiday market. With more than 9,500 vessel options and expert partners, our goal is to become a trusted personal holiday consultant seeking to provide personalized recommendations that respond to the needs of each individual concerned,” said vyra.com General Manager Sofia Finokalioti.
