Description

Why we love Greece and you will too

Greece is a wonderful place to charter, with tremendous variety across the sailing areas. The weather is wonderful, the water is warm, history and culture run deep, and Greece has up to 6000 islands, many with a small traditional village that is home to a Greek taverna or two. The key to our guests’ incredible Greek sailing holidays is working with Seamaster to ensure they sail the area that best suits their personal and unique preferences.

The Greek islands offer very different experiences and vary in terms of wind and weather, which can even change depending on the time of year you travel. Understanding this and providing bespoke solutions and advice is why Seamaster guests return to us year after year.

Sail the the Ionian seas from Corfu or Lefkas for gentle, picturesque sailing from taverna to taverna; sail the Saronics from our base at Athens for the best balance of lovely winds, sites, value, food and tradition; the Cyclades for the iconic Greek snapshots, golden beaches and the rich and famous, but with a bite to the winds that needs to be respected; sail the Dodecanese for it’s ideal mix of ‘touristy’ locales and a ‘get-away-from-it-all’ island experience; and the Sporades from Kos and Rhodes, with its national parks, isolated anchorages, great breezes, crystal-clear water and ‘Mamma Mia’ backdrop.

For a combined 25 years, the team at Seamaster have provided thousands of guests the very best sailing experience in Greece  – whether it’s discovering a different island everyday, swimming in isolated bays, exploring iconic villages, sampling delicious local cuisine in an authentic restaurant or relaxing in a quayside Greek taverna.

On your bespoke Greece yacht charter with us, you’ll experience an ancient culture in an environment that is a little ‘rough around the edges’, but that’s what we love about it. We’ll guide you to find your perfect Greek sailing holiday, where beautiful weather, warm turquoise waters and iconic island hopping experiences await!

"There’s a sense of liberty on a yacht that you just can’t get any other way on this kind of coastline. With your own yacht, the whole coastline becomes one big beach."

Sailing Qualifications

To charter a bareboat yacht in Greece you need to have a valid sailing qualification issued by a recognised authority (e.g. RYA, ASA, IYT, USSA). This qualification should not have any restrictions on daylight hours or a maximum sailing distance from shore. If you have an RYA Day Skipper certificate or similar, for example, you should also obtain the International Certificate of Competence (ICC), which is accepted. RYA Yacht Master is, of course, accepted.

Money and Currency

The national currency in Greece is the Euro. There are plenty of cash machines and bureau de change on the islands so withdrawing money and changing alternative currencies is relatively easy. We recommend you arrive with enough local currency to cover the first couple of days of your holiday. Cards are accepted in supermarkets but most tavernas and local tourist shops tend to prefer cash.

Language

The national language of Greece is Greek! However, English is widely spoken and understood throughout, especially within the service industry, including taverna staff and taxi drivers. All Seamaster partners and crew speak English proficiently.
