Monohull Sailing Boats in Greece

Monohulls are ideal to moor in crowded marinas because they occupy only one berth compared to multihulls that occupy more. Wide range of such boats offer competitive, but often more affordable charter prices out of high season. With their modern hulls they will offer you freedom of great sailing with no engine noise, thus being environmentally-friendly and very efficient.

Because monohulls point and easily tack during upwind sailing, you will sail fast in windy Greek seas and manoeuvre between green and flourishing Greek islands with our bareboat or skippered yacht charter. Spend mornings enjoying gentle breeze on golden sand beaches, afternoons drinking local beverages and evenings tasting Mediterranean cuisine, especially fish.

Catamaran Sailing Boats in Greece

Catamarans or multihulls have a small draft that allows you to anchor in shallow waters and approach the shore very close. Their multihull shape offers higher stability which is perfect for open water sailing. Catamaran charter prices are a bit higher, but you are getting spacious interior for storage and outside space for guests to lounge, sunbathe or party in lovely Greek weather, as well as a panoramic view and easy access to a boat which is perfect for families.

Pick a bareboat yacht charter and sail with steady and reliable winds delivered by Maestro, or if you are a beginner in sailing, pick a skippered yacht charter that will provide you with additional leisure time. A skipper will handle fair afternoon winds, show you secluded locations and suggest local cuisine and amenities, such as adventurous water sports and donkey rides.

Motor Yachts in Greece

With fast, comfortable and spacious motor yachts you can save time sailing from island to island in the most popular Greek sailing areas: the Ionian Islands, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the Sporades Islands and the Argo-Saronic Islands. 

Choose a bareboat yacht charter for more privacy and a skippered yacht charter to get more control at sea and full luxury experience that includes information about the home of the Olympic Games, about one of the oldest language in Europe and about diversified marine life - turtles, seals and the Greek Dolphin, a symbol of peace and prosperity. Bask on some of more than 1,400 beaches and take a swim in crystal-clear waters.

Gulet Charter in Greece

Gulets are spacious and luxurious sailing boats great for cruising holidays. They offer all-inclusive crewed charter experience with a skipper, a deckhand, a cook and a hostess/waitress. You just need to choose the level of luxury you desire and leave the rest to the crew.

Charming gulets with rich history will take you to ancient Greek history in a country with the most archaeological museums in the world. Long sunny days and an idyllic climate will make sure you get the most of everything Greece is offering - from swimming, sunbathing and coastal bike rides to sightseeing ancient and modern architecture and feasting on Greek specialties such as Greek salad, Greek yogurt and moussaka.

Types of Chartering Options in Greece

Bareboat yacht charter in Greece is perfect for novice sailors. Greece with the mediterranean climate, predictable winds, large number of islands and bays where one can find cover or spend a night is an ideal location for gathering new skills.

Skippered yacht charter is a great solution where a local skipper's extensive knowledge will lead you safely to the magnificent maritime locations of Greece, while you absorb rich history and breathtaking landscapes.

Crewed charter in Greece will spoil all your senses. The captain is steering the yacht to the hidden private bay, a deckhand handling all the ropes and systems on the yacht, a hostess keeping the boat tidy and a cook preparing delicious Mediterranean delights. With such a crew, your mission is to experience an ultimate vacation.

Flotilla sailing holidays - if you want to take your company for a team building or you can’t fit all your friends to one yacht, we have a solution for you. Sail out with two, five or even ten sailing yachts, and share that sailing sensation with all of your friends and colleagues. Imagine ten sailing yachts anchored in a picturesque bay and spending the night there - that is something you have to be a part of.
