Greece has 15,000 kilometers of coastline, 1,400 islands and one of the oldest sailing cultures in the world. Stand anywhere on Greek territory and you are within 100 kilometers of the sea. With the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean, no wonder Greece is Europe’s premier sailing destination.
For many years we have owned and operated our own fleet of sailboats, motor yachts, and wooden motor sailers. Note: All of our sailing trips are crewed yachts only.
Our company is experienced and licensed to operate private custom chartered tours throughout the Greek islands and Eastern Mediterranean as we have been doing for the past 25 years with an impeccable safety record.

Sailing Life Generally, chartered boats run from Saturday to Saturday. Average sailing is three hours a day. If your boat has a motor it can be used to keep to schedule, otherwise nature’s wind will get you to your next destination. Your daily activities depend on the itinerary you plan with us (see below Optional Activities). All bedding and linens are provided and changed twice within a week, including two towels (one for bath, one for the beach). The cabins have private bath with shower and via an on board generator, air conditioning and electrical outlets (220V).
Eating Aboard You can opt for full board with all meals provided by the resident chef who is skilled in preparing the wide and healthy variety of foods that make Greek cuisine a beloved choice for gourmands. A typical breakfast consists of fresh yogurt and honey, eggs, cheese, bread and coffee. Lunches are light, usually a salad. You may you’re your dinner with the chef to your liking --- fish, pasta, vegetarian, as well as Greek wine. Alternatively, you can have full use of the galley to prepare and cook your own food. Whenever you wish you can also dine in port at a harbor taverna. With either meal plan, water, fruit drinks and soft drinks on board are free.
Optional Activities As a specialty travel tour operator, we know how to add depth to your sailing adventure. Land activities enhance your sailing cruise and Greece has loads to do when docked.
