Greece Yacht Charters

Greece is a country in Southeast Europe, which is located in the Balkans. The country is embossed in four seas: the Aegean Sea, the Ionian Sea, the Cretan Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea . Due to its advantageous location, Greece possesses one of the longest coastlines in the world. This outstanding feature makes the country an incredibly famous sailing destination. Beautiful golden beaches along the island, emerald transparent waters, pine forests in the mountains, and extremely pleasant weather will not leave any sailor indifferent. Deciding to charter a shining yacht, you make an investment in unforgettable memories and the desire to come back as a matter of course. 

The reasons for which one must visit Greece are difficult to count as it has a lot to offer for everyone. Rich history, glorious past, impressive ancient buildings, delicious food and wine, an abundance of celebrations and festivals are waiting for you to explore the picturesque region. The pristine nature of Athens, Volos, Corfu, Kavala, and other Greek cities and perfect weather conditions create an ideal opportunity to rent a boat and melt into the pleasure.   

Sailing Conditions in Greece

Being situated in Southeast Europe, Greece welcomes sailors from around the globe to feel all the benefits of the Mediterranean climate. Hot and dry summers with rare precipitation and clear skies provide a good opportunity for yacht rental without any fear of possible rains and extreme winds. The average temperature during the summer period never drops below 20 ºC even at night. It is impossible to miss such great weather and not to go far in the sea on your sailboat to enjoy the 30 ºC heat in the daytime. Greek winters are usually colder, especially in those areas that are close to mountains. But they are not lingering and not so cold to somehow disturb dedicated sailors. The sailing season usually starts in March and continues up to November, bringing different sailing conditions to the island.

Best Times for Vacation in Greece

Having an intention to make the most of your sailboat vacation in the breathtaking destination, it is necessary to get acquainted with the weather conditions of the desired period. As a rule, the peak season of sailing occurs in the summer months and up to the end of September . This time features extremely high air and water temperature and a huge number of sailors even in the remote marinas. By the way, Greek summers are an ideal time for those who are ready to forget about sleep and party the whole night. One of the most important things to consider is that in July, the northern wind Meltemi comes to the shore and creates many hazardous obstacles for sailing.

Spring and autumn wind speeds and summer conditions force you to choose this time period if you are looking for peace and quiet. There is no extreme heat and strong winds, as well as no abundance of people. You still can enjoy going bareboat without any unpleasant conditions and immerse yourself into the same active and loud festivals and celebrations.

Sailing Difficulty Level

Greece has already gained its high popularity as one of the world’s best sailing destinations . Because of its climate and location, the country represents great sailing options for beginners and professional sailors alike. The weather changes require sailors to explore the weather forecast beforehand to select the desired time for coming and know what to expect. The level of difficulty is mostly predetermined by the Meltemi wind of 6-8 force. Blowing from July to September may scary fresh sailors and even become a challenge for experienced professionals. If you are not highly skillful and just do not have enough confidence to manage the vessel by yourself, consider booking a boat in spring or autumn. The absence of powerful winds will not spoil your first sailing experience but contribute to positive impressions.

If you are still not ready to face the open water, 12 Knots is glad to provide you with the help of a qualified skipper and an opportunity to hire a crew . Being focused on the needs and desires of every sailor, we offer either a skipper to help to refresh the memories of handling a boat or a complete training process in our sailing school. Both options are delivered at their best quality and reasonable price.

Main Charter Bases

Greece is an incredibly important sailing destination for 12 Knots. Welcoming thousands of happy sailors every year, the country has a lot of well-equipped marinas and good mooring options. Depending on the desired part of the country, preferred city, and climate peculiarities, you may select a perfect one. The team of 12 Knots spreads their professional services on more than 30 bases along the coast. You may rent a yacht or boat at bases situated in the most famous Greek cities and islands:

  • Santorini  and many others

Boat Types for Charters

Having a great number of bases in possession, 12 Knots aims to provide sailors with powerful sailboats from leading manufacturers. Approximately 6,000 vessels are now available for charter in Greece. Sailing yachts, catamarans, powerboats, gulets, and houseboats are waiting for your booking. Do not hesitate and contact our team to become an owner of a white shining boat at a good cost. It is advisable to perform booking beforehand to avoid disappointment and misunderstanding.

Other Information about Greece Sailing

Before diving into the images of future perfect sailing vacations, every sailor should be aware of some essential information about the intended place.

  • The official language is Greek, although English is also widely spoken, especially in tourist places.
  • Greece is the Euro zone; that’s why the official currency is Euro.
  • Greece is under the Schengen Agreement, which enables US citizens to enter the country without a visa and stay for no more than 90 days. For citizens of other countries, the consultation of the specialist is needed.

Yacht Charters in Greece with Istion

Greece is quite simply the perfect sailing destination in Europe. Blessed with a mild southern Mediterranean climate with an extended summer giving a comfortable sailing season of close to eight months, our small country has over 13,000 kilometres of coastline to explore . That impressive number comes from the over 6000 islands and islets scattered like diamonds in the sea, each of them inviting you to swim for hours, socialise while tasting Greece’s well know cuisine and enjoy the beauty of a Greek summer spent next to the waves. Greece is truly a sailor’s paradise .

At Istion Yachting, we have been providing unforgettable sailing holidays in Greece for more than 30 years. From our humble beginnings on the island of Kos in 1992 we now offer charters throughout Greece from our 11 main charter bases. Our experienced skippers and crews, charter base staff, planning departments and every one of the wider Istion team is an expert in their field and is ready to assist you in planning the perfect sailing holiday in Greece . We look forwarded to welcoming you this summer!    

There are so many options, and only so much time. The diversity of the different sailing areas in Greece makes picking just one difficult, which is why so many of our guests come back to sail again and again . There is always another beautiful island to visit and another idyllic beach to swim on!

Peak sailing season is from late June through August with hot weather, warm seas and busy islands. Availability can become limited during this period so booking early is essential.

Late spring from May to June and late summer from September to early October are often considered the best time to sail for experienced sailors and repeat visitors to our country. The weather is great and the islands are more relaxed than the busy summer months.

For those who want to live the real Greek way of life, April and October can be rewarding, with less heat, fewer visitors and enticing low-season offers . A few of the restaurants and shops on some islands may not have opened or may have closed for the season, but in our opinion early and late season sailing in Greece is a magical and unique experience .

The Argo Saronic Gulf is actually two gulfs (the Saronic and Argolic ) that are often referred to together in sailing terms given their close distances to each other. The Saronic Gulf lies in between Athens and the coast of the Argolid Peninsula while the Argolic Gulf is one hop over in between the peninsula and the first large leg of the Eastern Peloponnese , which runs all the way south to Monemvasia.

We often recommend this area to first time sailors for a number of practical reasons. First and foremost, it is the easiest area to reach from Athens , which makes it an ideal spot for those arriving via the Athens International Airport. Within a few hours of touching down you can be swimming and relaxing on board having reached your first destination.

Another advantage is that the area is well protected from the annual Meltemi winds that can blow strongly in July and August and may create challenging conditions for less experienced sailors.

The Argo Saronic Gulf also has plenty of places to visit on either a one or two-week holiday. One-week holidays will usually take in the nearby islands of Aigina and Poros before looping down to the coastal town of Ermioni and the cosmopolitan islands of Spetses and Hydra further south. A visit to Epidavros for a quick trip to its famous ancient theatre is not to be missed for the history buffs.

Two week holidays allow you to explore further east, with the coastal towns of Nafpleio, Leonidio and Kyparissi offering relaxed mooring while cruising the coast of the Eastern Peloponnese.

We invite you to learn more about our Athens charter base , download our sample one-week Saronic Gulf sailing itinerary for inspiration and contact us with any questions, we are here to help you plan your perfect sailing holiday.

Ah, the Cyclades. A name steeped in history that brings the classic image of a Greek island to everyone’s mind. While Greece has many island chains and all of them are unique and magical, the Cyclades has become nearly synonymous with the county as a whole for many visitors.

Characterised by their white houses, rugged landscapes and world famous beaches , the Cyclades attract visitors from around the world and are a must see for everyone at some point in their life. For sailors the area offers a huge variety of routes and islands to visit, from the world famous islands Mykonos and Santorini to the popular Paros and Naxos and many, many more in between.

A note about the Meltemi winds that blow from the north in July and August. In the Cyclades these winds can make for challenging conditions and sailing the area during these times is best for experienced sailors. Don’t despair all you beginner sailors! If you want a helping hand our skippers are the best in Greece and will be happy to take care of the sailing and navigation so you can enjoy the islands worry free.

The Cyclades are reached from our main base in Alimos Marina on the western side of Attica giving quick access to the islands of Kea, Kithnos, Serifos, Sifnos and Milos among others.

Our base in Lavrion is perfect for getting a head start to the islands of Andros, Tinos, Mykonos, Paros and Naxos . The Lavrion base is further south and on the east side of Attica, saving a couple of hours of additional sailing time on your way out. As an added bonus, Lavrion is just half an hour from the Athens International Airport so you can be on your way towards your destination just an hour or two after landing.

Located on the western side of Greece the seven main islands of the Ionian Sea have their own unique charm and character . The Ionian Islands are much greener than most islands in Greece, their location and geography bringing more rainfall during the winter months and allowing trees and shrubs to grow and thrive. The combining of colours between the green of the hills , the white of the sands and the blue of the sea are a special treat for visitors to this area.

Istion maintains three bases in the Ionian, on Corfu in the north and in Lefkas (or Lefkada) and nearby Preveza further south.

Itineraries starting from Corfu may include multiple stops along the Corfu coast, visits to the islands of Paxos and Antipaxos and visits to mainland ports including Parga and Syvota .

Trips starting from Lefkas or Preveza may head either north towards Corfu or South towards the islands of Kalamos and Kastos and then on to the mythical island of Ithaca and nearby Kefalonia . Note that our base in Preveza is just 10 minutes from the Aktion Airport where all charter flights to Lefkas arrive. If your flight times are tight, Preveza is a great option .

We recommend downloading our sample sailing itineraries for trips leaving from Corfu and from Lefkas or Preveza . If you need more recommendations for a truly unique voyage through to the Ionian just contact us , we will be happy to help.

The Dodecanese islands in the southeast Aegean are close to our heart. The central island of Kos is where Istion Yachting first started operations in 1992 .

The Dodecanese are known for their wonderful beaches and rich history ranging from the ancient to the medieval to the modern in a delightful kaleidoscope of sights and sounds . The area has relatively mild wind conditions that are perfect for sailing throughout the year and has plenty of sun and warmth during the summer months.

Istion now has two bases in the Dodecanese, our home base on Kos and another on the historic island of Rhodes . From Kos you may head north towards the islands of Kalimos, Leros and Patmos and if time permits all the way to amazing Ithaki and Fourni .

Heading south from Kos will put you on course to visit the islands north of Rhodes including Nisiros, Tilos and Symi . Setting sail from Rhodes itself also reaches these islands or you can choose to head west, exploring the coast of Rhodes and visiting the quaint island of Chalki and the beautiful islands of Karpathos and Kasos .

Charter flights from most European countries fly direct to both Kos and Rhodes making them a great starting point for your next Aegean adventure !

The Sporades are the hidden gem on the Greek sailing map . Nestled off the eastern coast of central Greece the main islands of Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and Skyros are a beautiful combination of green mountains, sandy and pebble beaches and deep blue seas. Nature plays a staring role here, with the National Marine Park at Alonissos being a significant refuge for the Monachus Monachus or Mediterranean seal .

Sailing conditions in the Sporades are relatively mild, although winds can shift between the day and night requiring some care when mooring. Distances between islands are short allowing a lot of fun to be packed into a week long charter .

We have two charter bases servicing the Sporades, a base on the island of Skiathos where most European charter flights arrive and another on the mainland city of Volos . Volos is a convenient starting spot for guests arriving by road with their own vehicle and allows exploring of the lovely coastline of the Pagasetic Gulf and Pelion on your way out to the islands – highly recommended !

Bareboat Charters

Tailored for the seasoned sailor, bareboat charters hand the helm over to you, allowing complete freedom to navigate the Greek seas at your own pace . Your sailing party must have at least one licensed skipper and one experienced crew member at a minimum to be able to rent our yachts as bareboats.

If you have some sailing experience but do not hold a valid license then a bareboat charter is not (yet) for you and your best option is a skippered charter where our friendly captains will give you a helping hand. If you are an experienced sailor and have no concerns about the challenges of wind conditions, navigation and docking then we invite you to read more about our bareboat charters here and contact us with any questions you may have.

Skippered Charters

Our skippered charters are the perfect blend of guidance and freedom, designed for those who have some sailing experience, are eager to learn or just want to relax and let a professional do the hard work . With an Istion skipper at your side, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with their expert navigation and docking skills while still playing an active role in your sailing adventure.

It's an educational and exhilarating experience where you can hone your sailing skills, participate in manoeuvring the yacht, and even take the helm under the watchful eye of your skipper. It is an amazing experience for everyone and kids in particular have a great time learning about sailing and playing little captain for a week.

Our skippered charters always start off with a briefing between you and your skipper so you can learn about the area you are going to sail and the islands you may want to visit. Our skippers know the Greek seas inside out and based on your preferences they will suggest recommended itineraries to follow, which islands to visit and what hidden beaches to swim at.

If you are planning your first sailing holiday in Greece , you are in the very best hands with Istion's professional skippers by your side. Read more about our skippered charters here , or just get in touch to start planning your perfect sailing holiday in Greece.

Fully Crewed Charters

For those of you that want to indulge in the epitome of maritime luxury, our crewed charters promise a carefree and opulent experience in Greece. This option is perfect for those who wish to sit back, relax, and soak in the Mediterranean sun while every detail is taken care of by our professional crew. From expert navigation to gourmet meals, and from personalized itineraries to attentive service, every aspect of your voyage is meticulously curated to ensure unparalleled comfort and elegance .

Crewed charters are available on a range of our top end sailing yachts and catamarans , and for those that want the thrum of an engine beneath their feet and to make a grand entrance wherever they go our exclusive motor yachts are waiting for you to step aboard. A crewed charter with Istion isn't just a holiday; it's an all-inclusive experience where you are the honoured guest and the Greek Isles your exclusive playground . Discover more about our fully crewed dream vacations here .

Sailing Yachts

Sailing yachts are perfect for those who love the classic feeling of sailing. Designed to be easy to handle, they smoothly glide through the water and let you enjoy the natural beauty of the Greek seas. They're a bit slower than other boats, and they lean to one side when the wind blows, which is all part of the classic sailing adventure. Their charming appearance and comfortable ride make them ideal for those who want to experience traditional sailing in a relaxed and eco-friendly way.

Sailing yachts are also the most budget friendly option for a sailing holiday in Greece. Our smaller yachts with three cabins and space for up to six guests (or eight if two sleep in the main cabin) can be rented for as little as roughly 1200 Euros a week in the low season. Costs for larger yachts with up to 6 cabins and space for up to 12 guests rise to approximately 10.000 Euros a week in the high season.

At Istion, we proudly offer a wide selection of the latest models as well as impeccably maintained older sailing yachts from Jeanneau, Beneteau, Bavaria, Sun Odyssey, Hanse and other top shipyards. Whether you're planning a cozy trip for a small group or a grand sailing adventure for a larger party, we have the right yacht to suit your needs.

Catamarans are the choice for those who want lots of space and a stable, comfortable trip. With their two-hull design, they don't rock as much as sailing yachts, which is great if you're new to sailing or easily feel seasick. You can also get closer to the beach with a catamaran, as they don't sit very deep in the water. Catamarans offer a smooth and spacious experience, making for a relaxing and comfortable sailing holiday and are a very popular choice for first time sailors in Greece.

For families and larger groups, the bigger cabins and more room to move around on a catamaran make them a good fit for your holiday. The double hull layout means two families can easily sail together while each having their own 'private space' on either side of the main deck. Catamarans also tend to have one washroom per cabin, a feature all parents with teenage kids appreciate.

The comfort and space offered in a catamaran puts them in a higher budget bracket than our monohull sailing yachts. Our smallest catamarans with four cabins and room for up to 10 guests start at roughly 2100 Euros per week in low season. Our top of the line models can range up to 16.000 Euros plus in the middle of the high season.

We are proud to have one of the largest fleets of catamarans in Greece with brand new models from Lagoon, Bali and Fountaine Pajot among others. We invite you to browse all our catamarans and contact us for any guidance you need to help make your sailing adventure in Greece perfect in every way.

Motor Yachts

Motor yachts are all about luxury and speed. They have multiple levels with lots of space, including big bedrooms and expansive living areas. These boats move quickly, powered by strong engines, so they're great if you want to explore a lot of places fast and make an impressive entrance wherever you go.

Our motor yachts are all modern, with plush interiors and all the latest features for entertainment and entertaining. However, they do use more fuel and require a professional captain and crew, so there's a higher cost for this kind of luxury and speed. If you're looking for a high-end and fast-paced trip with all the modern comforts, motor yachts are the way to go .

Yacht Rental Greece

In the heart of the Mediterranean, the sapphire blue sea encloses a land where the ancient gods once reigned supreme, a world carved by the patient yet relentless hands of geological time. Like the scorching sun kissing the landscape of olive groves and ancient ruins, the essence of Greece seems forever entwined with the sea that surrounds it. In this context, the prospect of renting a yacht in Greece becomes not merely a luxury holiday, but an immersion into an ecosystem that thrums with historical resonance and marine biodiversity.

Embracing the Call of the Aegean

Yacht Rental Greece

Renting a yacht in Greece provides the traveller with an unrivalled way to experience the shimmering necklace of islands that scatter across the Aegean and Ionian Seas . Each island, with its unique topography and diverse array of fauna, becomes a world in itself, ripe for exploration. As you sail from harbour to secluded cove, from bustling port to the tranquillity of an untouched beach, the grand theatre of life unfolds before your eyes. Yachting opens up opportunities for encounters with the playful dolphins that escort you through the waves, the regal falcons soaring above rocky crags, and the ceaseless rhythm of the tides that have whispered the same tune for eons.

Sailing Through History: A Tour of Greece's Unforgettable Maritime Destinations

🚢 Santorini: The Crown Jewel of the Cyclades

Your voyage commences in the Cyclades , with the island of Santorini . Famed for its sunsets and iconic blue-domed architecture, Santorini is the remnants of an ancient volcanic caldera. Sailing into the sheltered arms of this caldera, you are met by the shimmering white facades of Fira and Oia, perched high above the indigo sea. A stop in Santorini allows you to explore the winding streets and sample locally-produced wines, grown in the island's unique volcanic soil.

🚢 Mykonos: The Island of the Winds

The next anchor point is the bustling island of Mykonos , another Cycladic gem. Known for its vibrant nightlife and charming old town, Mykonos is a haven for lovers of culture and merriment. Explore the narrow alleyways dotted with boutique shops and fine restaurants, or marvel at the iconic windmills overlooking the azure Aegean Sea.

🚢 Delos: The Birthplace of Apollo

A short sail from Mykonos, you find the uninhabited island of Delos, an archaeological sanctuary and the mythological birthplace of the twin gods Apollo and Artemis. The island offers a unique opportunity to delve into ancient history, with the remains of temples, houses, and the iconic Terrace of the Lions standing as silent testament to a bygone era.

🚢 Lefkada: Sailing into Serenity

Lefkada , a turquoise gem, lures yacht enthusiasts with its pristine beaches and enchanting coves. Sailing around this Ionian paradise offers a blend of tradition and untouched nature, making every anchorage a new discovery.

🚢 Chalkidiki: Trident's Treasure Troves

🚢 Naxos: The Green Heart of the Cyclades

As you leave the lively shores of Mykonos, your yacht carries you to the largest island of the Cyclades, Naxos. Here, verdant mountains and fertile valleys teem with olive groves and vineyards. Explore the Venetian Castle in Naxos Town, or lose yourself in the serenity of secluded beaches that dot the island's coastline.

🚢 Ithaca: The Home of Odysseus

The Ionian Sea invites you next to Ithaca, famed as the home of Homer's Odysseus. Its rugged coastlines, laced with hidden coves and secluded beaches, beckon you to moor your yacht and explore. Ithaca's interior is a world of ancient olive trees, charming villages, and paths that whisper tales of the legendary king's long journey home.

🚢 Athens:  Yachting at the Cradle of Civilization

Athens , with its proximity to the Saronic Gulf, offers yacht enthusiasts a blend of history and stunning Mediterranean views. Sail through ancient seas, explore world-class marinas, and indulge in Greece's culinary delights. Athens is a timeless yacht destination, where myth and modernity meet in maritime harmony.

🚢 Kos: Anchor in the Aegean's Yachting Paradise

Kos Island, a jewel in the Aegean Sea, beckons yachters with its clear turquoise waters and sun-kissed marinas. Explore ancient ruins, relax on pristine beaches, or savor delectable Greek cuisine. Kos offers a sublime blend of history and hedonism, making it a sought-after destination for yacht enthusiasts.

🚢 Crete: The Land of the Minoans

To the south of the Aegean Sea, the island of Crete rises. As the cradle of Minoan civilization, Crete offers a glimpse into the ancient world. From the archaeological marvel of Knossos to the enchanting Venetian Harbour in Chania , the island is a cultural treasure trove. It also boasts breathtaking natural beauty, from the stunning beaches of Elafonissi and Balos to the imposing Samaria Gorge.

🚢 Corfu: The Emerald Isle of Greece

Corfu 's enchanting coastlines and luxurious marinas make it a prized destination for yacht lovers.

Its modern marinas, rich mining history, and proximity to ancient temples make it a unique yachting destination. Experience the blend of antiquity and elegance as you embark on a Lavrio yachting adventure.

🚢 Hydra: The Island of Artists

Closer to mainland Greece, nestled in the Saronic Gulf, Hydra emerges as a haven for artists. Motor vehicles are absent from this island, giving it a timeless feel. It is a place where donkeys still carry goods through narrow stone alleys, and grand sea captain's mansions harken back to Hydra's maritime past. Its picturesque harbour and crystal clear waters are sure to charm.

🚢 Symi: The Neoclassical Wonder

Your next stop is Symi, part of the Dodecanese islands. Upon entering Symi's harbour, you are greeted by a stunning amphitheatre of neoclassical houses, cascading down the hills to the vibrant, azure bay. Symi offers a peaceful retreat, with tranquil beaches and a slower pace of life. Don't miss a visit to the Monastery of the Archangel Michael Panormitis, a place of spiritual serenity.

🚢 Kefalonia: The Blue and Green Island

Returning to the Ionian Sea, Kefalonia awaits. This island is a paradise of diverse landscapes, featuring towering mountains, lush vineyards, and golden beaches. Melissani Cave with its ethereal blue waters is a must-visit, as is Myrtos Beach, often hailed as one of the most stunning beaches in Greece.

🚢 Skiathos: The Sporades' Star

Skiathos is the gem of the Sporades islands. This small but lively island is known for its golden sandy beaches, turquoise waters and the verdant pine forests that reach the sea. The medieval Bourtzi fortress, situated on a small peninsula in Skiathos Town, offers panoramic views of the Aegean.

🚢 Zakynthos: The Flower of the Levant

Your final destination is Zakynthos in the Ionian Islands. Here, the famous Navagio beach, also known as Shipwreck Beach, is an unmissable sight. The turquoise waters and the dramatic cliffs make for unforgettable swimming and sightseeing. On the island's western coast, the Blue Caves are a spectacular natural formation accessible only by boat, and an ideal spot to observe the marine life of the Ionian Sea.

Embarking on this voyage, the spirit of Greece unfurls before you like a canvas of blue and white, imprinted with history and graced by nature's generous hand. Each island, each wave carries a story, waiting to be discovered on your journey across the Grecian seas.

The Considerations of Voyage: A Primer on Yacht Rental

Yacht Rental Greece

Embarking on a yacht rental in Greece necessitates careful consideration of numerous factors to ensure the journey is not only enjoyable, but also respectful of the delicate marine ecosystems you traverse.

⛵ Seasons and Climate

The Mediterranean climate, with its dry summers and mild, wet winters, dictates the rhythms of life in the Grecian seas. The peak yachting season aligns with the sun-drenched days from May to October. Outside these months, the waters can be turbulent, the skies grey and the weather unpredictable.

⛵ Nautical Skills

A keen understanding of nautical navigation and maritime safety is essential. Many yacht rentals offer the service of an experienced skipper, adept at reading the changing moods of the sea. They serve as your guide through the waters, ensuring a safe passage while you soak in the beauty of the Grecian archipelagos.

⛵ Environmental Consciousness

As an unobtrusive visitor to the marine environment, it is incumbent upon you to uphold a sense of environmental stewardship. Waste disposal, energy consumption, and respect for local wildlife are all aspects that need to be managed responsibly to protect the enchanting biodiversity of the Grecian seas.

The Ideal Vessel: Choosing Your Yacht

The choice of your vessel is paramount, and largely dependent on the desired balance of luxury, speed, and capacity. For the sun-soaked waters of Greece, several types of yachts offer a unique blend of these features.

⛵ The Luxury Superyacht

For those seeking utmost indulgence, the luxury superyacht is an unrivalled choice. Equipped with an array of modern amenities, the superyacht offers a level of comfort that rivals any five-star resort. Yet, it goes beyond this. Imagine waking to a changing view each morning, the endless blue stretching out before you as the shoreline transforms from the honey-hued cliffs of Santorini to the verdant hills of Zakynthos.

⛵ The Sleek Catamaran

The catamaran offers stability and ample space, with its twin-hulled design. This is an ideal choice for families or larger groups. Their shallower draft allows you to navigate closer to the islands, exploring hidden coves and secluded beaches. The gentle rhythm of the catamaran ensures a smooth journey across the placid summer seas of Greece.

⛵ The Classic Sailing Yacht

For the true sailing aficionado, there is nothing quite like a traditional sailing yacht. Harnessing the power of the wind, these vessels offer a more intimate experience with the elements. Sailing yachts demand a greater degree of skill and knowledge, but reward with an exhilarating connection to the sea and the wind.

In the radiant glow of the Grecian sun and the lull of the undulating sea, the act of yachting in Greece becomes not just a journey through space, but also through time. A voyage that carries the promise of encounters with awe-inspiring ecosystems, of rediscovering the ancient roots of Western civilisation, and of basking in the tranquil luxury that only a yacht can offer. It is, in essence, a way of becoming part of the timeless narrative of the sea.

Navigating Your Grecian Voyage: Addressing Common Queries

In our shared voyage across the sparkling waters and sun-drenched isles of Greece, we understand that many questions may arise. Here, we anticipate your inquiries, addressing them in the spirit of shared discovery and our mutual fascination for this ancient sea-bound nation.

What is the best time to rent a yacht in Greece?

The best time to embark on a yachting journey in Greece is typically between May and October, when the Mediterranean climate offers warm, sun-filled days and calm seas. This period is the high season for yacht rentals, offering a perfect blend of favourable weather and vibrant island life.

What kind of yacht should I rent?

The choice of yacht is largely dependent on your personal preferences and needs. For larger groups and families, a catamaran offers ample space and stability. If luxury and comfort are paramount, consider a superyacht, which offers a host of modern amenities. For those seeking a more intimate connection with the sea, a traditional sailing yacht can be an exhilarating choice.

Do I need a license to sail in Greece?

The Greek authorities require at least one member of the crew to have a valid International Certificate of Competence (ICC) or an equivalent national certificate from your country of residence. If you do not have sailing qualifications, hiring a skipper is a popular option. The skipper can safely navigate the boat while you relax and enjoy the journey.

How can I respect the environment during my yacht rental?

Practicing environmentally friendly sailing involves a variety of measures. Be mindful of waste disposal - many yachts are equipped with holding tanks or you can dispose of waste at port facilities. Limit your use of single-use plastics on board, and respect the local wildlife by maintaining a safe distance. Finally, be conscious of your energy consumption and try to maximise the use of sails over the engine when possible.

Can I visit multiple islands during my yacht rental?

Absolutely. The beauty of renting a yacht is the freedom it offers to explore multiple destinations. The Greek islands are well-suited to island hopping, with many desirable locations in close proximity to one another. This allows you to discover the unique charm of each island at your own pace.

In sharing these answers, we hope to enhance your understanding of what a yachting adventure in Greece entails. As always, our journey is enriched by your curiosity, and we stand ready to navigate these enchanting waters alongside you.

Let us organise your perfect Greece 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 Greek yacht charter 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.

5-Star Reviews!

5 star review

From the moment of initial contact with Captain Yiannis, everything was seamless.

Our experience has been nothing short of exceptional.

From the moment of initial contact with Captain Yiannis, everything was seamless. This company and the entire team could not have been more helpful! We live in the USA and never had a problem with communication. The Catamaran we selected was the Lagoon 450F. It was beautiful, spacious, clean, and easy to live on for a week as we sailed to beautiful beaches.

The Ionian Islands we visited were breathtaking, especially Kefalonia – it was our favorite! Above all, the feeling of safety that Captain George ensured throughout our trip made our journey even more memorable. We can’t wait to experience it again.

So, if you’re looking for an unforgettable sailing experience around the Greek Islands with a professional company and a knowledgeable and friendly guide, look no further!

We made it back safely and happily to Paros today. Yianni showed us secluded beaches, surprising chortas and agreed to take us to santorini even though he hates sailing there! The kids enjoyed jumping off the boat and even steering it on occasion. It’s a beautiful part of the world and we’d definitely recommend exploring it.

Christine August 22, 2021

Yannis is a superb captain

First and foremost, Yannis is a superb captain. He is a true professional and puts the comfort and safety of the guests first. We had a superb week and thanks to the knowledge of Yannis we visited hidden beaches and places that were sublime. Yannis is passionate about sailing, and we all improved our sailing skills and learned about sailing this magical part of the world.

We cannot wait to return and know that Captain Yannis is our go-to Greek master of the seas.”

Kim Cornwall and friends October 14, 2021

The best tavernas for dining and the most interesting places to visit.

My friends and I had a terrific sailing trip with Cpt. Yiannis. We sailed islands from Athens to Milos for a week. [...] Captain Yiannis was not only an outstanding skipper, but he also is a very knowledgeable tour guide. [...] Also, he had tremendous knowledge of any island we stopped on the way and recommended the best tavernas for dining and the most interesting places to visit.

The captain was very professional and sailed extremely safe and responsible. Great guy, a great captain, thank you, Captain Yiannis!

Remis – Boston, USA June 26, 2021

Yannis gave us the ideal family yacht

We had a wonderful week of sailing in the Saronic Gulf end of August. Yannis gave us the ideal family yacht for this bareboat charter trip . Together with the charter company we felt us in very good hands, for all questions we had. Except in this year 2020, with these special conditions!

Thanks Yiannis.

Essential Info for Chartering in Greece

Most yachts are based in Athens. The majority of the crewed charter Greece departs from Athens to the Cyclades and the Saronic Gulf. Despite the Cyclades being the most inquired location because of the attractive islands of Mykonos and Santorini, a little research can go a long way for private yacht charters Greece. Firstly, the iconic islands are quite crowded in the peak months and even the limitation of the crew ship numbers hasn’t significantly brought down the visitor numbers to the key islands. The strong Meltemi winds make the journey from Athens a subject of elements, inquire about actually starting in Mykonos and Santorini . As the availability is subject to previous charter ending nearby or ideally in your preferred location, it is advisable to hold the purchase of airline tickets until a boat is secured.

The distances between Greek islands are quite considerable, a crewed motor yacht charter from Athens to Cyclades cruising at 12 knots usually does day hops of 3-4 hours, the time increases for catamarans cruising at ca 6 knots  to 4-6 hours. For this reason, many charters, especially involving first time charters, visit the Saronic Gulf – Hydra, Spetses, Poros. It is possible to cross from the Saronic Gulf to the Cyclades, which is usually done when Meltemi changes the plans of yachts from Athens.

The third most popular crewed charter destination in Greece is the Ionian Sea. The fleet of permanent yachts, especially catamarans, is limited. It is possible to charter from Athens, with the decisive factors being the availability of crossing of the Corint Canal which has been closed for reconstruction in 2021, open for only a few months in 2022 and uncertainty about being navigable in 2023.

Selecting Where to Charter in Greece

I want to see Santorini and Mykonos, my tickets are purchased for fixed dates three months from now in August and I need to start and finish in Athens, chartering a catamaran.

This is one of the most common inquiries, and one of the hardest to fulfill. Why?

  • Time to charter – with 3 months to charter, your best options are long gone. Ideally book 9-12 months before the charter
  • Flights vs Charter Location – with the distance between Athens and Santorini being 150 miles, the itinerary might not be possible due to weather, especially if we want to do Mykonos as well. Ideally, you’ll want to fly to Mykonos or Santorini or at least not plan fixed date island activities.
  • Fixed dates- One day up or down can completely change the offer of yachts available – you might need just that one that already has another charter booked for the day before you’re planning to return. It is a great idea to have your charter booked before you purchase your tickets.
  • Catamaran and long distances – as someone who does Athens – Santorini fairly regularly, it’s a great sail – for sport sailing. You’re on the open Aegean Sea and hiding behind islands is possible but further increases the distance – count 24 hours of sail one way and divide among the days of charter (24 hours x 2 ways / 7 days = 7 hours of sailing per day with a catamaran). Not a pleasurable experience.
  • Time of year – Santorini in August is equivalent to Times Square on New Year’s Eve. It can be a fantastic place if you have the correct expectations. There are 6,000 islands in Greece – plenty of alternatives for high end restaurants, history, Greek cuisine and peaceful or more popular places. Notice places like Milos and Lefkada are being increasingly crowded as well.
  • Despite all the above – inquire. We’re well connected with local providers in all areas and are able to provide non-public offers or creatively fulfill your requirements.

When it comes to yacht charters, the price range is about as wide as the open sea itself. The cost depends on factors like the type of yacht, its size, and whether you’re going for an all-inclusive package or not. In this article, we cut through the waves of information and get straight to the point by looking at specific yachts  currently available for charter in Greece .

small yacht rentals greece

Greece is a country with a rich history and vibrant culture. From ancient ruins and museums to traditional tavernas and folk dances, there’s always something new to discover. Greece has over  6,000 beautiful islands and navigating them is an Odyssey of a lifetime. This article aims to present the best Greek charter itineraries in a logical breakdown.

Boots on The Ground Update: Charter Season 2024 and What's There To Know About Greek Yacht Charters

The summer yacht charter season in Greece is developing in an unexpected manner, with an unprecedented number of higher-end yachts posting price reductions – an unthinkable development given the record-setting 2022 Summer Med Season.

The increased airplane fares are partly to blame, in connection to the ongoing issues in the Greek infrastructure – not enough marinas to match the demand on other islands and continued over-tourism of key Cycladic charter locations. In addition, 2022 and 2023 have seen record increases in the numbers of new yachts – some 235 crewed boats were added to the yacht charter fleet, while most of the older yacht inventory got a refurbishment – in part also due to the EU funds promoting tourism.

The key events in the Greek yacht charter industry in 2024

  • The cost of a July airplane ticket went from $900 to $1,400, year over year.
  • US inflation of 4-9% year over year weakens the purchasing position of the major charter market
  • Continued negative coverage of key Greek areas, from overcrowding of Santorini to DK Oyster restaurant scams on Mykonos continues to dominate the headlines
  • Turkey – following the Ukrainian conflicts, Turkey offered a safe haven to many Russian-owned yachts that risked being confiscated in Greece. In addition to the competitive VAT in Turkey (1% in Turkey vs 12% in Greece – in constant threat to be increased to full standard 24% with possible retroactivity of signed charters executed in future) – visit https://myturkishcharter.com for up-to-date and complete yacht offer of Turkish charter yachts. Greece has found itself in between the EU legislators and non-EU Turkish competition.
  • Santorini Marina – still in construction, unknown delays
  • Corinth Canal – successfully reopened June 22 after repeated construction works on 22 and 23! after walls repeatedly collapsed due to landslides.
  • Slow Opening of New Marinas – Licencing issues – limited births restrict navigation of charter vessels
  • Inflation of the Charter Fleet following record-setting 2022 yacht returns and EU subsidies for tourism that were leveraged for the purchase of new vessels
  • Increase of Ultra High Net Worth Individuals casting a spotlight – just Mykonos has seen Elon Musk, George Clooney, Christian Bale Matt Damon, Chris & Liam Hemsworth.
  • New, Upcoming Locations offer an alternative to the – “by now dead romantic idea of Mykonos and Santorini.” Antiparos is a hot charter location frequented by Tom Hanks, Jeff Bezos and Anderson Cooper. Anafi, Ikaria, Kythira, and Nisiros are coming up and the clients are more educated and receptive to the idea of chartering off the beaten and crowded paths.
  • A New Client Preference for Secluded Locations – A storm of documentaries have our clients requesting new experiences – we thank My Greek Odyssey and Peter Meneas on a journey of discovering his Kytherian descent and going much beyond and more with his yacht Mia Zoi or Costas Spiliadis – chef and owner of Estatorio Milos with the yacht Milos at Sea enable us to offer new immersive experiences creating not tourists, but travelers.
  • New Experiences – from having one or multiple jetskis onboard your yacht to chartering a Greek temple for your event, things are just easier to do in Greece. We’ve considerably expanded our concierge offering to accommodate requests ranging from beach horseback riding and spearfishing to luxury cars and entertainment events.

However, it’s not that easy to get there. Santorini is on the outer ridge of the Southern Cyclades facing Crete and charters from Athens are always weather dependent.

Ionian Islands

Located on the western part of the Greek mainland, the Ionian complex of islands comprises well-known spots such as Corfu and Zante, as well as the lesser-known islands of Ithaki, Kefalonia, and Paxi.

The culture, cuisine, and language of the islands are influenced by both Greek and Italian culture. When it comes to sailing spots, you can expect crystal clear waters with beautiful aquamarine colors that contrast with the lush vegetation. If you enjoy water spots, snorkeling or scuba diving are both great options!

The Ionian islands are a great alternative to the Cyclades during the hot summer months since they are not affected by the Meltemi winds.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yacht charter season in greece.

The main charter season in Greece is relatively long, spanning from April to September, with a peak in July and August. Notice the interesting months of March and October, which offer a nice combination of “water warm enough to swim” and out of season prices.

Yacht charter and boat rental are synonyms of one another. Most yacht charters start on Saturday and are usually rented for 7 nights/8 days. Therefore, most of the prices on this website are weekly.

Odyssey Sailing is a family run yacht charter agency based in Volos, an important commercial city in central mainland Greece, enclosed by the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Volos (Pagasitikos) and close to the Sporades islands (Skiathos, Skopelos, Alonissos and the smaller islands of the national marine park), the Pelion peninsula and the island of Evia.

The area was made famous by the film musical Mamma Mia, filmed in these parts. Now with regular flights from many European cities direct to Volos airport, and an increasing number of idyllic anchorages and tranquil bays, more and more people are discovering this relatively unspoilt and delightful sailing area. For those flying via Athens, Thessaloniki or Skiathos we can arrange direct transfers to the port.
