The investment project of the under establishment Company BLUE ORANGE M.C.P.Y is based on the upgrade of equipment of a sailing ship with the capacity of eight (8) beds, with the aim of the ability to fully accommodate people with mobility problems, in the context of alternative tourism in a very large category of tourists (Greeks and Europeans and not only), who are unable to enjoy the sailing because of “motor” problems. The company being set up innovates and creates a new tourist product, which the Greek seas are missing today and there is no other domestic tourist business. The investment project of the under establishment Company SAIL SHIPS L.T.D. is based on the creation of an industry for manufacturing and repairing sailing boats. Its goal is to specialized in constructions for people with disabilities. It is important to mention that in Greece, although designated as a marine country, there is no plenty of shipping yards for both small and large sailing ships. So the region of Bulgaria being neighboring seems to be a good business location for the establishment of such a business. The combination of these two companies is ideal for their cooperation, but especially a good start for the strengthening of these two sectors. So Sail Ships L.T.D will help the other partner to transform the sailing boat adjusted to disabled passenger’s needs and Blue Orange Sailing M.C.P.Y will offer the knowledge about disabled people and their needs to the other partner in order to produce the total product
