HYDRUS is a 55 ft Lagoon sailing catamaran with luxury accommodations for 10 guests.
From Ancient Greek Mythology and myths in Astronomy to the numerical values of ‘5’ in Pythagorean Numerology and ‘3’ in Chaldean Numerology, it is no coincidence that this 2023 Lagoon 55 has been aptly named ‘Hydrus’ after the Greek Primordial God of Fresh Water. The comforts of Lagoon 55 may have easily resembled a much larger Lagoon with all the privileges and pleasures it has to offer. Hydrus has ‘5’ very spacious cabins consisting of 4 queen en-suite cabins and 1 twin en-suite cabin which converts to a double if required. All cabins are airy and have a flow of indulgence, with mood lighting and a color palette that soothes yet stimulates your senses. This flow carries through to all other interior and exterior spaces.
HYDRUS’ features include upper and lower deck bar area and dining areas, upper and lower deck sunbathing and socializing areas, a fully decked galley with all contemporary amenities, and a superbly serene as well as a spacious living room area. Last but not least, the fierce HYDRUS has a crew of ‘3’, ready and able to assist and support your needs and wishes while sailing toward your ultimate vacation experience. Gliding, floating, drifting… your quest to explore the Greek islands awaits you from the moment you step aboard this streamlined and efficient beauty.

Captain Alexandros was born in 1982 and lives in Volos, Thessalia, in Central Greece. He is a graduate of the ATEI Department of Optics-Optometry and IEK Department of Organization and Business Administration. His sailing experience began in 1991 with participation in Optimist and Laser Class races. After many distinctions, in 1998 he started competing in the Offshore category and in 1999 he and his team won the Aegean Rally. At the same time, as a Skipper, he was carrying out boat transfers and newly built yacht deliveries to Greece, crossing the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean and the Mediterranean Sea from Northern France and Croatia. In 2000 he began his career as a Captain on various sailing and motor commercial yachts in the Aegean and the Ionian. In 2005 he started teaching Skipper’s license courses as an instructor in the nautical clubs of Volos d Skiathos and as an examiner for the sailing license in a corresponding school. From 2007 to 2019, he had been shareholder and administrator in some yachting companies, gaining extensive experience in crew management, customer service, and emergency response. As a personality, he is very friendly, communicative, and loves children. He is a nonsmoker and enjoys spearfishing. He speaks Greek and English.
Charalambos, known as Babis, was born in 1983 in Athens, Greece. After graduating from the 1st Technical School of Piraeus, he went on to study the culinary arts at Chef D’ Oeuvre and graduated in 2008. In 2009, while working at Restaurant Vardis at the Pentelikon Hotel as the Cold Cuisine Chef under Asterios Koustoudis, they earned their Gold Cap Greek Cuisine and Michelin Star. After years of experience as a Chef, he joined the yachting profession as Sous Chef onboard the world-famous Maltese Falcon.
Babis is excited to spoil guests on HYDRUS by creating incredible memories through exceptional dishes.

Judit is from Hungary and studied Art and Art history. She spent the early part of her career as a primary school teacher in Budapest and then went on to study beauty therapy and yoga in search of a healthier lifestyle, philosophy, and practice (which Yoga embodies). She spent the last few years in Malta honing her skills as a yoga instructor which she has practiced for over 15 years.
In the background, she also had a passion for the sea having been raised by a family who sailed. In 2018 her love for the sea called out to her and she switched careers and worked for P&O Cruises. Last year she started her career in yachting as a hostess and we are glad to have her in the HYDRUS team this year. Her varied life experiences have created a much-loved and invaluable crew member.
