GREEK CHARTER COMPANIES
I spent a lot of time researching and inquiring, and have made numerous calls to assure I know with whom and with what I am spending my money. I’ve already mentioned this, and I already told the forum that I have booked a charter and that I wanted to be 100% sure of my decision.
Their yachts belong to individual owners, and these owners may also choose to deal with all the other charter companies in Greece. The difference is the direct dealing between the charter or buyer and the yacht owner, and the fact that there isn’t any commission charged.
Their base manager is a yacht owner and was working as a freelance skipper – like many others. As you see and read the news articles about him, and the testimonials, he has been most successful and has offers from all the big charter companies. After what I’ve read these days on this forum, I’ve even asked for referrals and have been in contact with previous customers of this skipper, and I have not been told one complaint, but only enthusiastic and positive experiences.
Hellas easyacht is NOT a broker or charter company or travel agency. GNTO is an organization and its membership is necessary for charter/broker/travel companies. Every yacht owner of easyacht has the most significant stamp of approval, which is the official approval from the Greek Ministry of Merchant Marine.
And by the way, I thought this board was going to be used for casual information sharing. Some responses are so defensive and catty that I am starting to wonder...who is really behind some of these postings??
