- Mix of Secluded Islands & Lively Cities
- Historical Sites to Explore
- Easy Access to Saronic Gulf & Cyclades
The Cyclades, Dodecanese, Sporades, and Ionians – these are the magnificent isles that create a beautiful and historic setting for a Greek sailing vacation. Aboard your own private yacht, you can follow in the footsteps of mythical legends and walk among historic sites.
While some of the sailing destinations in the Mediterranean entail open-water, often spirited passages well offshore, a Greece yacht charter is far more sedate and family-friendly. An air of adventure fills the wind above the Saronic Gulf and extends to the shores of Poros, Hydra, Cape Sounion and beyond. And a Power yacht charter from Athens provides the freedom and speed you need to see more of this majestic cruising ground.
Where can I sail in Greece?
Each of our Moorings bases in Corfu and Athens Zea (a marina is located in Piraeus in Athens) offer a unique vantage point from which to enjoy the islands either in seclusion or in resort towns replete with white-sand beaches, upscale dining, and trendy boutiques. Unleash your inner explorer as you discover fascinating Ancient Greek ruins or unwind on sun drenched beaches with a book in hand. It’s all a matter of preference when chartering around Greece’s 2,000 islands, larger than our other Mediterranean destinations, Croatia and Italy.
Take the helm and sail across Greece’s stunning waters yourself or relax up on deck as our exceptional crew take care of your every need. What are you waiting for? Book your idyllic Greece yacht charter today and blissfully sail away into the sunset.
