Chartering in Greece

Hi all,

I''m planning to charter a bareboat in greece this summer.

After making contacts with a few charter companies, the one wich seems to offer the best conditions is EasySailing.

Have any of you, or someone you know, had an experience with this company?

Good Winds

Duarte

Not heard of Easy Sailing before. We use Nisos Yacht Charter based on Levkas. Small family british outfit - really great people and top boats!
Also been with Kiriacoulis - not so good!

Chartering in Greece

Just returned from a 2-week charter with Easy Sailing. We took Sophia III, a 2003 OceanStar 56.1 out of Alimos and did the Cyclades. We experienced every type of weather condition from Force 8-9 out of Folegrandos (very hairy exit out of the tiny bay entrance) to no wind and glass sea out of Ios to Paros. This boat was an absolute pleasure to sail in all conditions. We felt safe and relatively comfortable despite double reefed or motor-sailing conditions during the meltemi, and enjoyed the luxury of the generator-power AC during the hot windless afternoons.

Aghis and Christos of Easy Sailing are both very courteous, professional, and care a lot about their boats and the people who sail them. I called Aghis several times on his personal cell phone during the cruise for various reasons (we were changing crews midway and he helped coordinate the transfers of incoming crew), and he was always there to answer with a laugh and helpful advice.

I have bareboated extensively in the Caribbean, as well as 3 times in France, Corsica, and Italy. Most of the time, I have chartered with Sunsail and the Moorings due to their large size and reputations. I had many reservations about chartering in Greece from any company after hearing some horror stories (many of which are listed in these message boards), but our trip with Sophia III and Easy Sailing was a dream come true!

When will greek charter brokers stop writting there own testomonials on this board? Seems that Easy yacht has a need to assure people that there business is going well, well I am sure that the general public would be interested in hearing that as a spin off company from GPSC, and a first year company they do seem to have a few charters out on the sea. But then using GPSC yachts and personnel makes it EASY to find american customers unfamiliar with GPSC"S record.
I think that readers of this board need to be careful of what they read here as the board has become so corrupted with Greek broker inuendo and lies that its difficult to sort though all this bull ****.....
When chartering in greece deal with a long established broker or find a good local broker in your country who knows the ropes in Greece, watch out for the new easy brokers and such like one years buisness does not make a reference of on going good buisness pratices....

Actually, my message was unsolicited. However, "UK Broker''s" defensive and insulting tone (not to mention poor grammar; what is "easy yacht"? I chartered with Easy Sailing) does a disservice to this message board. How does his message not add to the "********"?

I used this message board as part of my research for choosing among various charter companies in Greece last fall. I posted the message in order to ''repay the favor.'' If anyone would like to know the details of my experience, feel free to contact me. (I suppose you have no way of knowing for sure that I am not on the payroll of some charter company, other than the fact that I say I''m not)

Honest people need to take back this message board.

Chartering in Greece

Hi
I own a travel agency that sells "bareboat charters" to its clients. I can''t be everywhere and would hate to sell a charter group with a "bad experience" I would love to sort out the good from the bad and ugly experiences before I recommend a Greek charter. Help
