Chartering in Greece

Sailing among thousands of iconic and easily accessible Greek islands is the reason why chartering a yacht in Greece is among first choices of most yachties. There is plenty to see and do and that's only one of the reasons why many sailors keep returning year after year.

Greece has long standing tradition of shipping and yachting and therefore well developed maritime infrastructure. Pleasant climate, lack of notable tides and tidal streams, reliable and moderate winds make each of Greece's six main sailing regions a paradise in its own right. 

While you are there, make sure to experience boisterous but warm Greek welcome infused with authentic Mediterranean cuisine and sealed with a glass of sharp but palatable Ouzo. 

Greece offers more than 40 well equipped marinas as well as thousands of natural anchoraqes in secluded inlets and bays. 

 

We operate extensive fleet of either bareboat or skippered monohulls, catamarans and motor yachts out of all major hubs in Greece  ​

Enjoy an amazing sailing experience exploring wonderful islands located in the vicinity of Athens which offer not only sandy and rocky beaches, often accessible only from the sea, but also a number of fascinating historic sites. 

Embark on your charter in Corfu and start exploring Ionian. From here, you can easily sail to other Greek islands such as Lefkada, Ithaca and Zakynthos. Corfu is one of the most fortified places in Europe so walk around the Old Fortress in Corfu Town. Its old core is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy a romantic stroll along its narrow streets and take a selfie on Spianada Square, the largest square in Greece.

According to the Greek mythology, Lefkas is a birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, which is something you can definitely feel on the entire island.

Set off from Mandraki Marina in Rhodes, where once the mighty Colossus of Rhodes, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, guarded the entrance to the port. Take a walk among the ruins dating back to the time of the Trojan War or learn more about the Knights of Malta who found refuge here. 

Or simply spend your time exploring other Dodecanese islands including Crete and Kos.

All of these islands offer abundance of historical treasures as well as vibrant and exciting night life.

Sailing around Santorini, Mykonos and Paros is a spectacular and unforgettable experience.

Your staring point should definitely be the largest island of the group, Santorini. There, you can go hiking the famous Fira Trail or swimming in the hot springs! Mykonos is among the most popular of the Cyclades as it offers a great variety of motor yachts for charter.

Archaeological buffs and Greek mytholgy lovers will definitely enjoy a visit to Delos, the sacred island in the central Cyclades, a birthplace of twin gods Apollo and Artemis.

Macedonia is the region lying at the crossroads between the Aegean Sea and the Balkans.

Visit Thessaloniki, the region’s capital, and take a walk through the ancient forum or visit Byzantine monuments, such as the city walls, towers and bathhouse. Or, charter one of the yacht in the  extensive fleet based in  Kavala, which was known as the “Mecca of tobacco”and visit a surprisingly interesting Tobacco Museum, as well as the famous Castle of Kavala.

The Northern Sporades consist of the scattered,  remote and fertile islands of Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos, Skyros and Pelagos. In contrast, the less travelled Eastern Sporades refer to the sailing area that includes the islands of Lesbos, Limnos and Chios, which string along the Turkish coastline.
