Re: Sailing in Greece

Have you checked these threads?

Croatia versus Greece

Greece Bareboat - Need recommendations on regions and charter companies

I don't know this company personally and I am not endorsing it but it has great references on trip adviser and has a good information about the several sailing grounds in Greece and that's why I am posting it:

Re: Sailing in Greece

A site which can give you some reviews of charter companies is:

Yacht charter Greece and sailing holidays Greece and Turkey - Marine navigation - Yacht charters Greek islands and Turkish coasts

We used him 6 years ago before we did a flotilla charter in the western areas.

Best of luck.

I can second it. The website is full of useful information (particulary if you never been to Greece) and Diederik (I believe is his name) is very helpful. He recommended us a few smaller charter companies and we eventually went with one of them. Pretty happy about it. And Diederik was very helpful with variety of questions I had about sailing in Greece (it was our first time there and I hope not the last one . If you never been in Greece, I highly recommend chartering boat there because you can combine your sailing trip with sightseeing of a lot of historic places. It is in fact a birthplace of Western civilization.

Re: Sailing in Greece

We had a wonderful fabulous time in Knidos, Dodecanese and other Greek islands during our charter vacation on motor sailor yacht Infinity from Bodrum. Everything was set even better than our expectations. Captain and crew members were strongly experienced and very efficient people. They did their bests to make us feel comfortable. Captain has very good experince to sail according to weather and sea conditions. All of us appreciate this professional hospitality. I absolutely recommend wwwcobrayachtcom

Re: Sailing in Greece

If you are not satisfied by either of the two:
Yacht charter Greece , bareboats and crewed yachts
Nomicos Yachts Ltd.
you will not be satisfied by anyone else.
Sailing out of Alimos marina near Athens provides for best combination of boat variety and charter price.

And you are not by any chance related with those companies?

Re: Sailing in Greece

I have chartered from both and was satisfied.
I have joined the sailnet forum 10 years ago and have always been consistent in my remarks and arguments. Be advised about my sailing club and role in it: CNCE Cercle Nautique des Communautés Européennes
