Usually, the bigger the boat, the greater the comforts you can enjoy onboard. Boats bigger than 50 feet are generally available only with skipper or crew. So if you have a sailing license and enough experience to rent the yacht driving it yourself, keep this detail in mind.

What type of charter are you looking for?

what-type-of-charter-are-you-looking-for

Knowing what type of sailing holiday in Greece you are looking for is fundamental to let us, our Charter Managers, assist you properly with selecting boats to share with you, so let’s explain the alternatives and differences. Below the list of charters you can opt for when you rent a sailing or motor yacht in Greece:

  • Crewed
  • Skippered (Bareboat + skipper)
  • Bareboat
  • Cabin

crewed charter is when the vessel you are renting has a stable crew, usually composed of more than one member: captain and hostess/cook, captain deckhand, and hostess/cook. It would depend on the yacht and its dimension.

prices-bareboat-charter-greece

When a boat is available in a bareboat, you can rent it without a skipper. 

If you have a valid sailing license and previous experiences (together with the patent, it’s also required your sailing resume). But if you cannot drive the boat, you can hire a captain who will take care of it. A skipper usually goes to the vessel and cleans it externally. If you wish to have more services, as internal cleaning and cooking, you can add a hostess or a cook.

The cabin charter is usually available aboard gulets and catamarans: you will share the vessel with other people, renting just your cabin. Usually, for these types of yacht charters, you also have packages that can comprehend half or full board (as per your demands), tot—number of cruising hours per day with a fixed itinerary, final cleaning, generator hour.
