Cabin Charter in the Cyclades
Set sail from Mykonos and explore the wonderful islands of Naxos, Koufonissi, Santorini, Ios and Paros before sailing back into Mykonos at the end of your first week. Explore the vibrant cosmopolitan island of Mykonos before leaving the yacht or, better still, continue for a second week of sailing, this time visiting the islands of Schinoussa, Santorini, Folegandros and the other side of Paros before sailing back towards Mykonos.
50 foot sailing yachts
Our yachts, Christiana VII and Malama, are the perfect vessels for your Greek sailing adventure, with 4 double cabins, all with en-suite facilities. A maximum of eight guests are on board, together with an experienced, professional crew of a skipper and hostess to look after you. Breakfast and a light lunch is included, to be enjoyed on deck whilst anchored in an idyllic bay. Enjoy a refreshing swim before or after lunch, the choice is yours.
Discover the Greek islands
After a day on the water with the wind in your hair, enjoy the sunset in the cockpit before exploring the local area. Most days you will reach harbour in the afternoon so there’s plenty of time to relax, go sightseeing or swimming before choosing a waterside taverna for dinner. Sample the local specialities, which vary from island to island and make this a voyage of culinary discovery as well as exploring the historical and cultural delights of these beautiful islands.
Boats depart every week from Mykonos between April and October, and the route alternates every second week so if you come on a 2-week cruise you will visit different locations. Routes may be adjusted according to the prevailing weather conditions. Embarkation is from 5pm on Saturday and disembarkation is after breakfast the following Saturday.

Day 1 - Saturday - MYKONOS
This unique island oozes chic and traditional charm in equal measure. Mykonos is one of the most popular islands in the Aegean and this island paradise has great beaches, great shopping, fabulous food and endless nightlife.
Day 2 - Sunday - NAXOS

From the largest to the smallest….Koufonisi offers unspoiled natural beauty, crystal clear emerald waters and a chance to experience the lesser Cyclades in all their glory.
Day 4 - Tuesday - SANTORINI
Santorini is probably the most photographed destination in the Mediterranean, and sailing through the caldera is a breathtaking experience.Iconic, dramatic and still an active volcano, Santorini is the best known island in the Cyclades and a trip to the perfect Cycladic town of Thera, perched on the edge of the caldera is a must.
Day 5 - Wednesday - IOS
Ios has been popular with back-packers, hippies and a vibrant alternative scene still exists on this island, also famed for some great watersports beaches. Visit the (supposed!) tomb of Homer – buried her after being unceremoniously dumped from a passing ship!
Day 6 - Thursday - PAROS (Naoussa)
Naoussa on the north of the island is our favourite – great chill out bars and a beautiful little fishing harbour as the backdrop to the sunset.
Day 7 - Friday - MYKONOS
Back to Mykonos at the end of the week, with time for a cocktail with your feet in the water in the old town.

Arrivals and Departures. Great nightlife, iconic photo opportunities, great beaches – a fantastic island to start your adventure..
Day 2 - Sunday - PAROS (Parikia)
Paros, lying to the south-west of Mykonos, is relatively low-lying by Cycladic standards. Parakia is our usual stop here, and for those with a urge to explore, seek out the Church of 100 doors, where Christianity and Greek mythology meet.
Day 3 - Monday - SCHINOUSSA
Schinoussa, the Island of the sun, is another gem in the crown of the lesser Cyclades. Small to say the least – indeed a full yacht with crew increases the population by 4% after stepping ashore! Enjoy one of the many hiking trails before sampling the local cuisine, something the locals are fiercely proud of.
DAY 4 - Tuesday - SANTORINI
Iconic, dramatic and still an active volcano, Santorini is the best known island in the Cyclades and a trip to the perfect Cycladic town of Thera, perched on the edge of the caldera is a must. Top tip – go for local grown vegetables in the taverna – primarily nurtured from the morning dew, the concentrated flavours are amazing.
Day 5 - Wednesday - FOLEGANDROS
After the hustle and bustle of Santorini, Folegandros is a wonderfully relaxing island. Take an evening trip to the Chora, with more spectacular views of the Aegean.
Day 6 - Thursday - PISO LIVADI
Piso Livadhi is a small harbour and town on Paros, laid back and charming. Sit and sample the local catch with a glass of ice cold ouzo.
Day 7 - Friday - MYKONOS
Our tour of the northern Cyclades comes to an end with a short sail back to Mykonos. Still time to explore Mykonos town, or for those who have already been, a final afternoon on the beach at nearby Agios Stefanos, with a leisurely meal right on the shore.
Day 8 - Saturday - MYKONOS
Arrivals and departures – Those staying for 2 weeks have the whole of the island to choose from – relaxing or partying? perhaps a bit of both!
