Let us organise your perfect Corfu yacht charter itinerary.

Our expert brokers know the cruising grounds intimately, both personally through first-hand experience and in real time through contacts on the ground. Your itinerary will be tailored specifically for you to deliver the holiday you want.

New to charter?

The Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) is due at the time of the final charter payment. Under MYBA terms, this sum is usually equivalent to 30 per cent of the total charter fee, but may be up to 40 per cent in some cases.

Intended to cover the operating expenses of a charter as explained under Charter Terms, such as fuel, food, drinks, port fees and ad hoc incidentals, the APA will be given to the captain before the start of your charter. The Captain will ensure that the yacht is fully fuelled and provisioned when you step on board. While an up-to-date summary of accounts can be requested at any time during your charter, a full set of accounts will normally be submitted by your captain at the end of the cruise. If, during the charter, the expenditure exceeds the sum already paid, additional cash funds will be required at once.

All outstanding bills from the yacht charter should be settled in cash or by bank transfer before your final disembarkation. Of course, any remaining credit at the end of your charter will be reimbursed to you in full. On request, transfer arrangements to and from the yacht can be made by Burgess or by the yacht’s captain, payment for which will be deducted from your APA.

Guide to Corfu

The sun-drenched gem of the Ionian Sea

The northernmost isle of the Ionian archipelago, Corfu is the perfect gateway to your idyllic yacht charter vacation. Boasting sparkling sandy coves, an abundance of ancient history, wild natural landscapes and delicious traditional foods, the strong multicultural influence from years gone by means there’s much to discover on this stunning cosmopolitan island.

Undoubtedly one of the best places to explore is the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town. Nestled between two imposing fortresses, you’ll find yourself wandering through history and getting lost down the slender cobblestone lanes. You’ll spot majestic Venetian buildings, pastel-coloured homes along narrow streets, and numerous restaurants spilling out into the pathways.

Intriguing museums and noble palaces can be found here too, along with grand architecture such as the French-built Liston Promenade. Take some time to visit the stately Achilleion Palace, once a home for Austrian royalty, and Mon Repos, an estate with deep roots in Corfiot history and the birthplace of Prince Philip, now husband to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. There’s no shortage of cafes or restaurants in the Old Town, and you’ll soon find the winding alleys will open out onto bustling plazas, where you can pause in your explorations for lunch or a glass of wine. 

If you can pry yourself away from the beautiful meandering streets of Corfu Old Town, you should make your way over to Vlacherna Monastery. Jutting out into the sea on it’s own tiny islet, the monastery is an iconic site and connected to the mainland by only a stone bridge. A quiet, charming place to spend some time, Vlacherna is open all year round to visitors who want a peaceful moment to sit amongst the cypress trees, or learn about it’s long history as a nunnery. There was also once a scene filmed there for the James Bond movie, ‘For Your Eyes Only’.

Spending time on this beautiful island without visiting a beach would be impossible and Corfu has over 100 for you to choose from. Cruise along the coastline to the other side of the island from Vlacherna Monastery, and you’ll discover Porto Timoni beach, a stunning and unique site that you should certainly take some time to enjoy. The beach is split down the middle by a strip of lush vegetation, giving visitors two glistening beaches to choose from.

The crystalline waters are perfect for swimming and snorkelling, and if you visit early in the morning, you’ll be one of the only people there. If quieter beaches are what you search for, Paradise Beach is not far along the coastline from Porto Timoni and is only accessible by boat. Why not sail your charter yacht on the relaxed afternoon winds to one of the most exquisite beaches in Corfu, and revel in its unspoilt natural environment. 

After a day basking in the sun, hunger is bound to strike and Greece is well-known across the world for it’s mouth-watering cuisine. Local Corfiot dishes can be found throughout the isle; expect mountains of fresh seafood and shellfish, alongside meat dishes that will typically be made with lamb. To enjoy a drink or meal while watching the sunset, head to the very northwestern tip of the island to a restaurant called 7th Heaven. Here you’ll have panoramic views out across the Ionian Sea and a spectacular sky of colours. For those with a taste for the finest cuisine, Etrusco Restaurant in the town of Dassia boasts a Michelin starred chef. 

There are several strategically placed marinas in Corfu, allowing you chance to explore this island to its fullest potential. Some of them can accommodate large vessels up to 80m, such as the fully equipped Gouvia Marina. Petriti Marina welcomes vessels with a maximum length of 60m and is located near some of the best beaches in the area. Palaiokastritsa Marina can accommodate platforms up to 60m too, and is located relatively close to the city. Other marinas like Kavos Marina can only take a max length of 9m, but is the best place to berth to experience Kavos' renowned nightlife. Alternatively you could anchor in one of the many secluded coves for a chance to discover somewhere all to yourself. 

This sparkling and romantic Greek island is ready for you to discover. Start planning your next trip with family and friends by comparing all Greece charter yachts .

Understanding Yacht Charter Options in Corfu

When planning a luxury yacht charter in Corfu , the type of yacht you select is crucial in shaping your experience. Yachts, often referred to as luxury pleasure boats, vary in size and style, each offering a unique set of features and amenities. Superyachts, typically over 24 meters in length, provide spacious and opulent settings, ideal for those seeking the utmost in luxury and comfort. For those looking for something even more extravagant, megayachts, which are larger than 80 meters, offer an unparalleled level of luxury and space.

  • Motor Yachts: The most common choice for charters, known for their performance, spaciousness, and stability.
  • Sailing Yachts: Ideal for those who love the romance and freedom of sailing with the wind.
  • Catamarans: Known for their multi-hull design, offering exceptional cruising comfort and stability.
  • Gulet Yachts: A blend of traditional sailing and motor power, known for their beautiful craftsmanship.

Choosing the right yacht involves considering several factors. Your decision should be influenced by the number of guests, the desired level of luxury, the type of sailing experience you’re looking for (e.g., adventure, relaxation, exploration), and any specific amenities you desire. Whether it’s a family vacation , a romantic getaway, or a corporate event, the variety of yachts available ensures that there is a perfect match for every need.

In Corfu, with its serene waters and picturesque landscapes, selecting the right yacht can transform your charter experience into an unforgettable journey. The island’s rich history and natural beauty provide the perfect setting for exploring in style, whether you’re gliding through the waters on a sleek motor yacht or embracing the timeless elegance of a classic sailing vessel.

Best Times to Charter a Yacht in Corfu

The ideal period for yacht chartering in Corfu is between May and August, when the weather is most conducive for sailing and outdoor activities. During these months, the island enjoys a warm and inviting climate, with average temperatures ranging from a pleasant 23.8°C to 31.3°C. The humidity levels are comfortable, and the extended daylight hours, ranging from 14.4 to 14.9 hours, provide ample opportunity to explore Corfu’s natural and historical attractions. Additionally, the sea temperatures are perfect for water activities, gradually warming from 19.1°C in May to a delightful 25.7°C in August.

Conversely, November and December are less favorable for yacht chartering in Corfu. These months experience the heaviest rainfall, with average precipitation reaching up to 187mm, and increased humidity levels. The shorter daylight hours, around 9.4 to 10 hours, and cooler sea temperatures, dropping to 17°C in December, make these months less ideal for yacht chartering and water-based activities. For those seeking the best sailing experience, planning a trip outside these months is advisable to fully enjoy Corfu’s stunning coastal beauty.

Run by a range of different empires through the ages, and only Greek for the last 150 years, the Ionian island of Corfu may well have Greek as its main language, but its culture and history is very much its own. One of the oldest holiday destinations for British package holidaymakers, and dominated by that empire for many years, a Brit will feel very at home here! That said, so will Italians, with the Venetian empire running it for centuries before... Many say that its beautiful beaches are some of the very best in Greece, and this in turn has helped Corfu become such a successful holiday destination.

The Ionian Islands differ from the other Greek islands - the Dodecanese Islands, Saronic Islands, Sporades Island and other Aegean Islands - thanks to their location. On the surface the Ionian Sea has a different temperament with the Bora winds being gentler during the sailing season, but the geography has meant that they have different histories. The Dodecanese Islands are just off the Turkish coast and have been a flashpoint between Turkey and Greece since pre-Ottoman times. This has impacted their foods, cultures and histories in different ways.

Corfu Island is one of the seven Ionian Islands on the calm and beautiful Ionian Sea. Possibly based at the island's main Gouvia Marina on Gouvia Bay, your boat charter will likely take you on to see smaller islands such as Paxos Island and Antipaxos, or larger ones like Lefkada and Kefalonia as you explore the region on your luxury yacht charter.

On a Corfu catamaran charter you can explore as much or as little as you want. Perhaps a sandy beach or two for swimming out of the sight of others is your thing? A week or two Greek island hopping will show you many such opportunities, while those who want to use their luxury yacht as a party base to hit the tavernas with a vengeance will have plenty of room for that! Your Greece yacht charter opens the doors to it all!

Crewed Catamaran Charters from Corfu

You don't need to worry about being an experienced sailor or even sailing the boat out of Corfu with Borrow a Boat! A Corfu crewed catamaran charter on a motor yacht or sailing catamaran can mean you do as much or as little physically sailingthe yacht as you like on your yacht charter holiday.

A skippered yacht charter or will mean that the skipper will be aboard with their own cabin to attend to all your needs. A crewed yacht charter or gulet charter will involve one or two crew on the gulet charter who will cook, sail and make suggestions as to your best destinations on your sailing itinerary. With their local knowledge, even if you're an experienced sailor you can enjoy a perfect yacht charter holiday.

One of the advantages of a crewed yacht charter holiday is that you can go longer distances from the yacht charter base. The Saronic Islands are within reach on a two week sailing trip, as is Athens and indeed the Cyclades.

As to you? You can just enjoy the breezes and views on your luxury yacht charter, or if you fancy learning a bit about sailing, help the skipper or crew to get the boat from A-B.

A Corfu crewed yacht charter will cost a little more (typically €150 a day for a skipper and €100 per crew member) and it's the done thing to thank them with a tip at the end of the week.

Bareboat Catamaran Charter From Corfu

A bareboat yacht charter holiday will mean that you can take the charter yacht out on your own. Generally for vessels up to 20 metres LOA on a sailing license such as an RYA Day Skipper or ASA 104 Bareboat certificate, you will have total responsibility for the yacht.

You will need to think about your itinerary, victualling, possible secondary ports should a marina be full, as well as issues like weather and mooring fees.

On a bareboat catamaran charter you will be asked to pay for insurance in the form of a security deposit to the chartercompany on departure or through buying charter insurance before you leave the yacht charter base.

Types of Catamarans Available For Rent Or Charter In Corfu:

When searching a geographical area on Borrow A Boat you can filter by the below charter yacht types. There is also the option to further filter your searches by price, the number of guests, cabins or bathrooms, what year the catamaran was launched, the boat length and the boat manufacturer.

Types of Catamarans Available:

Sailing Catamarans: Luxury catamarans are stable and spacious type of sailing boat, with quick sailing performance, and and have been gaining in popularity in recent years. Better for larger groups, they have lots of room for water toys, and are big enough for a little privacy. A catamaran charter luxury yacht is easy and comfortable for novices not used to heeling and are loved by families due to their extra space when compared to a monohull sailing yacht. Typically far more luxurious than a sailboat, the larger catamarans have en suite toilets and showers in the cabin as well as ample entertaining space in the saloon and on deck.

Power Catamarans: These motor yacht catamarans are relatively new but have also been gaining in popularity as the two hulls keep the boat more stable when compared to a monohull. The wider beam of these motor boats also mean more deck space and as they don't have sails or a mast, they have a lot more space on deck than a sailingcatamaranrental or monohull. For a luxury catamaran charter, consider taking a crewed catamaran charter sailingvacation with an experienced skipper.

Catamaran Sailing Itineraries From Corfu

On your Corfu crewed catamaran boat rental or bareboat charter sailing holiday you can explore the Ionian Islands and even via the Corinth Canal, on to the Saronic Gulf. Here we suggest a 7 day sailing holiday and a 14 day yacht charterholiday on your charter boat:

7 days - Gouvia Marina - Ionian Islands: Over a week's boat charter you can get as far south as Zakynthos. Pause at one of the smaller islands of Paxos Island and Antipaxos on the way south (and perhaps the other coming back north) and then sample the sights and sounds of Lefkada, and Ithaca on the way south, before spending a day or so exploring Zakynthos and then back via Kafalonia on the way north. Back to Marina Gouvia for handover.

14 days - Corinth Canal and Saronic Gulf: Covering well over 250NM on this sailing holiday, this might be one for a crewed yacht charter to allow for night passages as you go. You will island hop the Ionian Island chain and then head into the Gulf of Corinth, getting to see one of the most spectacular marine shortcuts of the world in the Corinth Canal. From here you can explore either the Saronic islands of Aegina and Salamina or sail into Athens on mainland Greece. Return, enjoying the longer passages on the Aegean Sea and then Ionian Sea as you take in Greece in all of its colours, sights and subcultures.

Do You Need A Licence To Charter A Catamaran In Corfu?

If you are on a skippered catamaran charter you do not need a license to sail out of Corfu, you can just turn up at the marina and go.

You do need a license if you are on a bareboat catamaran charter and in some countries such as Greece a day skipper or ICC may not be enough for boats over 45 feet in length, you will need to check with the charter agent but here are some examples of typical sailing qualifications that will allow you to charter in most countries:

International Certificate of Competence: This is issued on request by your European sailing authority and you should automatically qualify with certain national sailing qualifications.

RYA Qualifications: If you have the following qualifications you will typically be able to take a bareboat charter out of Rhodes (but it is worth checking as per above), these include Day Skipper (sail or motor endorsement), Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster.

American Sailing Association (ASA): The ASA 104 Bareboat certificate is commonly accepted but also check as per above

US Sailing : The International Proficiency Certificate is widely accepted and The Bareboat Cruising Certificate is also accepted in many cases.

If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company and they can typically send someone from the charter base

You should consider do you have the experience to handle the catamaran before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool in the evenings.

Cruising the Moskva River: A short guide to boat trips in Russia’s capital

corfu yacht charter companies

There’s hardly a better way to absorb Moscow’s atmosphere than on a ship sailing up and down the Moskva River. While complicated ticketing, loud music and chilling winds might dampen the anticipated fun, this checklist will help you to enjoy the scenic views and not fall into common tourist traps.

How to find the right boat?

There are plenty of boats and selecting the right one might be challenging. The size of the boat should be your main criteria.

Plenty of small boats cruise the Moskva River, and the most vivid one is this yellow Lay’s-branded boat. Everyone who has ever visited Moscow probably has seen it.

corfu yacht charter companies

This option might leave a passenger disembarking partially deaf as the merciless Russian pop music blasts onboard. A free spirit, however, will find partying on such a vessel to be an unforgettable and authentic experience that’s almost a metaphor for life in modern Russia: too loud, and sometimes too welcoming. Tickets start at $13 (800 rubles) per person.

Bigger boats offer smoother sailing and tend to attract foreign visitors because of their distinct Soviet aura. Indeed, many of the older vessels must have seen better days. They are still afloat, however, and getting aboard is a unique ‘cultural’ experience. Sometimes the crew might offer lunch or dinner to passengers, but this option must be purchased with the ticket. Here is one such  option  offering dinner for $24 (1,490 rubles).

corfu yacht charter companies

If you want to travel in style, consider Flotilla Radisson. These large, modern vessels are quite posh, with a cozy restaurant and an attentive crew at your service. Even though the selection of wines and food is modest, these vessels are still much better than other boats.

corfu yacht charter companies

Surprisingly, the luxurious boats are priced rather modestly, and a single ticket goes for $17-$32 (1,100-2,000 rubles); also expect a reasonable restaurant bill on top.

How to buy tickets?

Women holding photos of ships promise huge discounts to “the young and beautiful,” and give personal invitations for river tours. They sound and look nice, but there’s a small catch: their ticket prices are usually more than those purchased online.

“We bought tickets from street hawkers for 900 rubles each, only to later discover that the other passengers bought their tickets twice as cheap!”  wrote  (in Russian) a disappointed Rostislav on a travel company website.

Nevertheless, buying from street hawkers has one considerable advantage: they personally escort you to the vessel so that you don’t waste time looking for the boat on your own.

corfu yacht charter companies

Prices start at $13 (800 rubles) for one ride, and for an additional $6.5 (400 rubles) you can purchase an unlimited number of tours on the same boat on any given day.

Flotilla Radisson has official ticket offices at Gorky Park and Hotel Ukraine, but they’re often sold out.

Buying online is an option that might save some cash. Websites such as  this   offer considerable discounts for tickets sold online. On a busy Friday night an online purchase might be the only chance to get a ticket on a Flotilla Radisson boat.

This  website  (in Russian) offers multiple options for short river cruises in and around the city center, including offbeat options such as ‘disco cruises’ and ‘children cruises.’ This other  website  sells tickets online, but doesn’t have an English version. The interface is intuitive, however.

Buying tickets online has its bad points, however. The most common is confusing which pier you should go to and missing your river tour.

corfu yacht charter companies

“I once bought tickets online to save with the discount that the website offered,” said Igor Shvarkin from Moscow. “The pier was initially marked as ‘Park Kultury,’ but when I arrived it wasn’t easy to find my boat because there were too many there. My guests had to walk a considerable distance before I finally found the vessel that accepted my tickets purchased online,” said the man.

There are two main boarding piers in the city center:  Hotel Ukraine  and  Park Kultury . Always take note of your particular berth when buying tickets online.

Where to sit onboard?

Even on a warm day, the headwind might be chilly for passengers on deck. Make sure you have warm clothes, or that the crew has blankets ready upon request.

The glass-encased hold makes the tour much more comfortable, but not at the expense of having an enjoyable experience.

Getting off the boat requires preparation as well. Ideally, you should be able to disembark on any pier along the way. In reality, passengers never know where the boat’s captain will make the next stop. Street hawkers often tell passengers in advance where they’ll be able to disembark. If you buy tickets online then you’ll have to research it yourself.

There’s a chance that the captain won’t make any stops at all and will take you back to where the tour began, which is the case with Flotilla Radisson. The safest option is to automatically expect that you’ll return to the pier where you started.
