Yacht Chartering in Greece

Yacht chartering in GreeceWith the July holidays looming, planning is well under-way for those bookings already made, many of those being for Yacht Chartering in Greece. With about 5 very different regions to explore, there are so much choices of where you can go. One holiday in Greece is just not going to be enough, to cover it all.

West side Ionian from Corfu, Lefkas to Vounaki; Athens region in the centre; Skiathos to the North; central Aegean Islands with Mykonos and then Kos & Rhodes off the Turkish Coast ….you can fill at least 5 years worth of holiday’s to explore all the various places.

Each have their own characteristics and weather patterns for different times of year. Each is an adventure waiting to be explored.

Chatting to a friend who was fortunate to take a few months to sail his own boat from Turkey through the whole of Greece all the way across to Italy, he says this was the most amazing journey. Each day held new surprises, new beauty when you thought you had seen it all already and around each corner was something special.

On a usual holiday charter of 7 to 10 days, you can explore one region quite comfortably giving yourself time to venture on land to the towns and villages, hike the islands or even ride them by bike, eat and enjoy the local restaurants and delicious assortment of foods as well as explore bays and beaches, coves and open ocean.

The variety of boats available covers everything from sailing catamarans, power catamarans (although few), monohull sailing through to gulet’s and superyachts.

A great option in Greece is also the FLOTILLA program where you have your own boat but are part of a group sailing together everyday. Guided by a flotilla captain and crew, you meet new friends from all over the world, do your own thing but also enjoy the group activities and get the advantage of local knowledge, have parties on the beach at night and a fun regatta to end of the time. This is a great way to charter and make the most of your time.
