The term shipyard means small shipbuilding units in which small boats are raised for cleaning and storage. In Samos there were many shipyards in the 19th century where wooden boats were built.
Today, only two shipyards continue to operate, one in the Port of Karlovasi and the other in the bay of Agios Isidoros.
In the past, the shipyard consisted of many small autonomous shipbuilding and repair units, but today there is only one shipbuilder left who continues the art of wood, the well-known in the whole area of Psilopatis.
The shipyard is located 5 km outside Kallithea and access is possible by car or motorcycle with the last four kilometers on a dirt road.
