Yacht Chartering in Greece - A Few Things to Consider

Spring and Fall are the most popular seasons for yacht chartering in Greece since this is when the climate is most appropriate and there are far fewer tourists on the mainland and around the islands than in Summer.

Selecting the Type of Charter

There are numerous options to pick from and if planning your trip you should think about the following questions. How many people are going to be in your party and will they need double or single berths aboard?

Do you take a sailing yacht, a motor yacht or a motorsailer? What degree of comfort do you need a board? Will you take a skipper?

Bear in mind that European regulations require that two qualified individuals be aboard. Another choice is to sail into a group or flotilla of other ships. These may be a mixture of bareboat and skippered yachts and will supply you with the ideal balance of instructional support and local knowledge.

Length of Trip

To be able to get the most out of a yacht charter, the minimal amount of trip should be around seven days. In terms of the maximum period of time, that's up to you. Many companies will offer discounts for longer charters.
