Chartering in Greece

Hi there,

New to the forum and if this thread should be located elsewhere, please do let me know. My husband and I are looking at chartering options in Greece for this upcoming June for our honeymoon. We are on a budget (isn't everyone?), and many of the rates were coming in a bit higher than would be ideal. We can make it work, but it would be nicer to find it for less

After some digging, my husband found a Facebook page called Sailing Greece and has been speaking to a woman/man named Jan about options. All boats are privately owned and not operated through a brokerage. The boat looks great and the price is perfect.

My question is: firstly and most importantly, has anyone had any experience with this site? Secondly, what pitfills should we be extra aware of if we go with a non-brokered option? Making sure insurance and contingency plans are in place are a given, but what might we miss, this being our first charter?

It goes without saying that it would s-s-suck to get there and have 1) a crap boat, 2) crap service or worse, 3) neither of those things having been taken for a ride.

TIA!

Re: Chartering in Greece

I´d rather choose a last minute offer of one of the bigger charter companies - less risk. You could try Ionian Yachting Ltd / Ionian Charter - Ionian Charter - Yacht Charters in Greece and take the boat from Lefkas (Levkada) - south of there you´ll find a wonderful cruising area. It´s on the westerly coast of Greece, and there´s no Meltemi wind like in the Agean Sea. Airport Preveza is nearby. If you send them an Email send it directly to Mrs. Eleni Vrioni / Managing Director, and include greetings from Christian (World Peace Fleet), she might give you a better Price

Re: Chartering in Greece

If you're on a budget you could go with a company that functions like Airbnb such as Antlos, I sailed with them in Venice and it was fantastic. They cut the charter agency completely out of the equation, which enables the Skippers to list their boat holidays for the lowest possible prices. If you sail the Ionian be sure to visit Lefkada! Fantastic turquoise waters, excellent seafood and gorgeous caves!
