As a yacht owner in greece, I feel I must agree with Peter, and further add a few little know facts about Greek Charter companies.
Over 80% of greek charter companies do not own there own yachts but, lease them from private greek owners, who at best are useing them for investment/revenue purposes, and therefore have little interest in maintenance etc.... hence the attitude "sail them hard and put them away wet".

2 Greek charter companies charter up to 30% commission from the owners for business. Leaving the owners the crumbs at the end of the day, no wonder they do not keep there boats up to parr.

3. The recent world troubles, 9/11, iraq war, have but many greek charter companies in big finacial trouble, why?
The greek charter companies have contracts agreeing to pay the owners a set fee evry year for use of the yachts, regardless of weather they go out on charter or not. After last years 9/11 disaster where many yachts remained tied to the dock, the companies find them selves owing on last years contracts and look like owing even more as a result of the Iraq war.

4. In general it is best to go with NON Greek run charter companies, small to meduim sized operations where the owners run there own yachts. examples being, Exas, Odyessey, Sea Trek, Navigare and Chandler Yachts.
These companies are run by Non Greeks, who understand the desperate need for quality service.

5. As a warning compaines to avoid at all costs, GPSC,GM Yachting, MG Yachts, Sun Yachting, Atheanian yachts, Kavas, but to name a few of the more nortourios

the about is for information purposes only

HELLO, Odysseus yachting / as far as I am aware, they use old boats. From my experience, one of the companies that is reliable is called mythos yacht charters. I sailed twice with them and was very satisfied with their service and the boats. My friends also sailed last year with this company and everything was o.k. Basil.

After years of chartering in the greece, both agean and ionian, the best company by far is Exas: www.exasyachts.com/ These guys have the newest boats(read no maintancna on the trip), nice people and resonably priced.

Athenian is on a distinguished road
Dear Sirs,

I represent and act on behalf of the company, ATHENIAN YACHTS ENTERPRISES S.A, one of the largest and most reliable chartering companies in Greece with clients and collaborators all over the world.
Our company is exclusive representative of JEANNEAU shipyard and also the exclusive representative in Greece of the world renowned chartering company, MOORINGS U.S.A.

The letter published in this internet site written by Sailmaster 25 has the phrase "As a warning companies to avoid at all costs GPSC,GM Yachting, MG Yachts, Sun Yachting, Atheanian yachts, Kavas, but to name a few of the more nortourios".


The above information is highly defamatory to our company and causes several problems to us.

Therefore, we ask:

to be informed for the cause you include our company, if the mentioned company is ATHEANIAN - our company.

Have you ever been in touch with our company, when and what was your problem?
It was a very great surprise to see our name in this defamatory list.

We are awaiting your explanation as soon as possible and we demand to delete this defamatory letter from the site.
We reserve the right to take action against you.


Dimitris Tzaras

How about it Sailmaster 25? Dimitri of Athenian Yachts raises some legitimate questions as to why you have included them.

Geez. Forget Sailmaster.....what happened to all those greek charter owners types espousing lawsuits and such. (Dimitris and Alevropoulos?)

Threatening crappy lawsuits makes everyone NEVER want to use your company.

You were all full of Vim & Vinegar before. Why haven''t you responded to these simple questions posted on another message (here it is http://members.sailnet.com/messageboard/readmessage.cfm?Forum=6&Topic=7124 )

Since we never got a response with proof backing it up (Not just heresay), we assume the true answers are not very flattering.

(ps. You know where you can stick your "legal" crap.)

Has anyone had any experience with Aegeus Yachts Ltd.? We''ve just contracted with them through Westward Ho Sailing in Britain and wonder if there is any experience out there to hear about. Thanks.
