Happy is the man, I though who, before dying, has the good fortune to sail the Aegean Sea. Greece has a fine claim to creating Western civilization with its rich history in politics, philosophy, history, the arts, medicine, trade and sportsmanship.
It’s the perfect sailing destination with thousands of islands, laid back culture, delicious food and beautiful beaches. Get a free quick quote and plan your Greek island hopping charter adventure. Greece also boasts magnificent natural beauty. The stunning aqua or dark blue waters and the faultless blue skies are a draw card for sailing yacht charter vacations as well as luxury motor yachts. Greece is still one of the most sought-after yacht charter areas in the Mediterranean, be it luxury crewed yacht charter or bare boat yacht charter, due to the huge number of things to see and do and the relative close proximity of everything by water.
Perhaps it’s the sexy sophistication of Mykonos, the music and dance of Zorba and the timeless romance of Santorini that attracts Greece’s shores. The Greek Islands are an intense blend of past the present, old and new. The Greeks are strong in their traditions and beliefs. Widows dressed in black can stare accusingly at the scantily dressed tourists, yet moments later, invite you in as welcomed guests. Bustling taverns and modern discos entertain the young and young at heart.
The Greek hospitality is unchallenged. A sailing yacht vacation or a power boat charter is a great way to experience all the Greek Islands have to offer. There is also increasing demand for luxury yacht charter and superyacht charter in Greece. After the sunset you can relax in your charter yacht’s cockpit sipping on Greek wine, Dolmadakia (stuffed vine leaves) and Tzatziki whilst listening to the soothing sounds of Bouzouki music drifting from a little harbour village.
The Cyclades, Dodecanese, Sporades, and Ionians – these are the magnificent isles that create a beautiful and historic setting for a Greek sailing vacation. Each of the three bases in Greece offers 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. Greece yacht charters can include open-water passages or cruises in calm gulfs and bays, and always the chance to explore fascinating ancient ruins. It’s all a matter of preference when chartering in Greece.
