Why charter a yacht in Greece

There is really no better way to have a holiday in Greece. Since ancient times, the Aegean and Ionian seas have been a major part of the myths of Jason, Odysseus and many others who still inspire us today. Greece is home to some of the world’s most beautiful islands and remote beaches, many of which are only accessible by boat. The question, really, is not why, but why not?

IS THIS HOLIDAY FOR ME?

Whatever your age, whatever your sailing experience, there is something for everyone to enjoy on board a yacht! Chartering a yacht is 100% customisable to suit your perfect holiday. There are many options: bareboat charter yachts for those with a sailing licence; sailing courses for those seeking to gain experience; flotillas for those who prefer to sail with other like-minded people; cruises and skippered yachts for anyone who doesn’t want to do any sailing themselves and would rather sunbathe on the deck.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Chartering a yacht for a week tends to cost no more than booking a hotel room and hiring a car for the same period. And of course on a yacht you have all the liveaboard facilities you need: a fully equipped galley to cook your own meals (unless you prefer to hire a hostess to do that for you), hot water showers, your own private cabin, and access to all the ports, marinas and idyllic anchorages on your route. When we dream of going on vacation the first image that comes to mind is of a beautiful unspoilt beach, and the freedom to do as we wish. Our boats will give you access to areas that are off limits to the tourist crowds whilst keeping you comfortable and in control of your holiday. A sailing holiday is a custom holiday. There are many options available, so depending on what you do the price varies. Perhaps a luxury crewed motor yacht or catamaran is not beyond your reach? It is a good idea to keep an eye out  for early bird booking offers on our social media pages, and at Odyssey Sailing we offer discounts and great prices!
