Neorion Yachts are luxury yacht builders based in Syros, Greece, and are part of the select group of global shipyards capable of constructing full displacement yachts over 85m in steel and aluminium.
Named for the ancient Greek word meaning a place to construct or repair boats, Neorion Yachts boasts a long and illustrious boat-building history. The yard was founded in the 1800s, when it began building traditional ships, boats, and steamships to support the Greek Steamship Company, and by the 19th century Neorion was one of the most important heavy industries in all of Greece.
In 1997, Neorion acquired Elefsis Shipyard and began constructing megayachts, using nearly two centuries of boat building knowledge to craft Neorion’s flagship vessels, QUEEN MIRI and MOONLIGHT II.
Neorion is currently working on a 120m new build design with acclaimed naval architect, Laurent Giles.

Neorion also has an excellent refit capacity for maintenance and conversions, with a syncrolift for yachts up to 80m and five floating docks. This large yacht refit capacity can cater for all sizes of yachts, with projects spanning from the very large to very small yacht refits, such as a recent restoration of an iconic Bertram 31.
Additionally, Neorion benefits from being part of the Neorion Holdings Group, with Elefsis Shipyards, Syros Shipyards, and Neorion Yachts collaborating to share resources, facilities, skilled workers, and R&D.
