In this type of charters, it is rather difficult to give the names of the yachts in advance as the bookings on these cruises are open until the departure day. The yachts are allocated according to the latest booking status with the right room breakdown.
The cabin charters are operated on traditionally built wooden yachts. They are crewed motor sailors. The capacities of these yachts 6 cabins with private sanitary facilities and they are adequate to accommodate 12 to 16 persons on each cruise. They all meet standard security requirements and are equipped with navigation, sailing and cooking facilities.
They have air conditioning. (in use 4-6 hours per day). Pls note: air condition is not in use during the night and inside the marinas.
The boat is assigned shortly before the departure day and might have 6 or more dbl cabins. There cruises can be considered like low cost last minute deals, so the description of the boat it is not provided in advance.
In mid-season our departures in the center of the Cyclades (Mykonos or Syros) allow to optimize the route in the islands (much better than leaving Athens). In July and August we avoid the Cyclades, usually very windy at this time, in favor of 2 other beautiful archipelagos, the Ionian and Sporades, for a quiet cruise from coves to harbors. We then offer a transfer from Athens airport on Saturday and bring you there the following Saturday around 1 pm.
We have guests coming back for the 8th time on board, which is a guarantee of satisfaction. A search for authenticity for a trip to Greece in harmony with the nature and culture of the country.
The equipment of our yachts are of "top" quality, from the toilets to the silent generator running just time to time (solar panels). They have the ability to sail when the wind permits and have a proven level of reliability and safety. Except the one of the single cabin on the her, all beds are 2 meters long (the largest bed in the Sup2 cabin is 210 x 170) and the mattresses are excellent. The crew is only captain, sailor and chef and we are not in a 5 star hotel; there is no steward on your service and the open bar is self-service (fridge "drinks", as at home).
We offer a quality half board on board, which also allows to discover local specialties and taverns in the cute Greek harbors.
