Yacht Charter in Greece

Welcome to hospitable Greece and welcome to the famous Greek Archipelago – a symbiosis of the sea and sailing through centuries. The sailing areas include The Saronic Gulf, the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, the Sporades and the Ionian Islands – and you will find incredible beauty everywhere. Hundreds of exiting islands, thousands of kilometres of sandy beaches, traditional harbours and small fishing villages everywhere each hold something unique and very different from island to island. The sailing-opportunities are truly infinite – and your charter can be matched to fulfil your exact wishes.

It is worth considering that it will take countless months to sail around and along the many Greek islands and coastlines. Nature has been generous with a mild climate, which is ideal for sailing 9 months of the year (March to November).

From the Cyclades Islands, where the wind suddenly changes direction and strength for the joy of yachters who wants a challenge, to the Ionian Islands where stable and calm wind-conditions usually give an easier and more relaxed sail. In Greece, you will find truly cosmopolitan islands, such as Paros, Mykonos, Corfu, Rhodos, Santorini and Hydra. If you prefer the unspoiled and peaceful anchorages or smaller harbours; you can sail to the eastern Peloponnese, Síkinos, Milos, Simi, Nisiros among many others.
