Take a stroll around the Old Port of Spetses and you will come across the dockyards. This is where the tradition of shipbuilding on the majestic island has remained alive throughout time.
You will see the construction of all kinds of traditional wooden boats in the dockyards from fishing boats to trawlers. The island's dockers have defied the harsh work conditions and kept their favorite art alive with passion. The dockyard is an open ''museum'' which is worth visiting to experience close up the construction of traditional boats.
