Mykonots, Greece—A man who built a boat out of concrete and plywood to sell to customers who would not be able to use their own boats, died last week.
The body of 30-year-old Michalis Dimitros Demetriades was found inside a boat at a new boat yard in Mykonia.
Demetris was believed to have died from a heart attack, according to local media.
Demets death leaves Mykons owner-operators wondering whether a better way to build boats is possible.
“We will continue building boats until the end of our lives,” Demetros’ brother told local news outlet Kypros.
Demere was a construction worker in Mykkonos who built boat hulls and other structures for clients.
Demeta’s brother, also named Demetrius, told Kyproso that the company is still in the process of deciding on the next direction for the business.
“There is a lot of possibilities for future projects,” Demeta told KyPros.
“I think there is a way to make it a profitable business.”
Demetricias brother, who did not want to give his last name, said the family is still struggling with the financial consequences of the death.
“At the end, it’s up to the company to decide whether they want to continue the project,” Demere said.
“It’s difficult for us to decide between different possibilities.”
