Yacht Charter Greece

Greece Yacht Charter Guide

Greece is a land of myth and legend, treasured for its myriad islands and pockets of serenity. White-washed homes, turquoise-domed churches and verdant green hillsides dominate the landscape. The year-round clement weather is accompanied by strong winds, crystal waters and dramatic anchorages making it a sensational sailing hub drawing yachts far and wide.

Why explore Greece on a luxury yacht charter:

Endless stunning coastlines and beaches

More than 2000 islands make up Greece’s seascape, scattered across miles of coastline far from the mainland. It makes for memorable island hopping and every yacht charter different from the last.

Hop around the islands

Though many islands are remote, some even without vehicles, accessibility by boat and helicopter is surprisingly easy. Some of the islands even enjoy airports, providing greater flexibility and choice to meet the yacht. Cruising by boat is the best way to discover isolated bays, enjoy picnics in solitude and make the most of water toys away from onlookers. Island hopping allows guests to experience the culture, immerse in the villages and dine on fine delicacies unique to certain areas.

Endless days of summer

Greece offers the best of the Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and dry summers. Yachts typically charter during the summer months of June, July and August, though the bookend months of May and September can prove to be equally as rewarding once the hot heat has waned and the crowds have departed.

A culture to remember

Dripping in historic importance and renowned for the role it played in the progression of western civilization, Greece has many accolades to its name. From philosophers to Olympians, its culturally diverse lands beg to be explored one island at a time.

Featured Yachts for Charter

Defined by the warm constant winds that blow throughout the year and rocky outcrops that harbor bays and paths ripe for discovery, the many isles that are sprinkled across the Aegean Sea create mesmeric yachting itineraries. Located to the southeast of the mainland, the 220 islands of the Cyclades are the most popular yachting destination in Greece.

Architecturally rich and archaeologically significant, the signature white-washed Cycladic landscape is easy to reach from mainland Athens. The windmill island of Mykonos has earned an international reputation for its throbbing nightlife, while the glowing sunsets of Santorini melt hearts and minds. For a taste of Greek mythology, Apollo’s temple in Delos will deliver.

The twelve Dodecanese Islands lie less than a hundred miles from the Turkish coast and are positively soaked in rich and complex ancient history. The smallest of these islands offer a range of secluded harbours - a relic of their trading past – whilst all offer an abundance of stunning beaches and dramatic terrain, best viewed from the water, of course. Across all twelve islands and 150 less known islets are countless Byzantine churches and medieval castles, and the climate is between temperate and dry tropical, with an extended dry summer period.

The vertical string of lush Ionian islands comprises seven main islands including Kefalonia, Corfu, Zakynthos, Ithaca, Paxi, Lefkada, and Kythira. The Ionian sea embraces Greece’s west coast and boasts mild weather, rich vegetation, staggering Venetian architecture, and calm and predictable sailing conditions. The islands offer miles of sandy beaches with turquoise waters, making this area the perfect yacht charter destination. Even though split into the north and south islands, the entire island chain can be experienced on a two-week charter itinerary.

The Saronic Islands, just a couple of hours from Athens, offer a rich history of modern Greece. Located to the south of Athens, between the northeastern shore of the Peloponnese and the peninsula of Attica, the Saronic Islands stand out for their calm, protected waters suitable for cruising year-round. They are just a two-hour cruise away from Athens and are ideal for weekend escapes. Rich in culture, history, tradition, and natural beauty the main attractions include Hydra and Spetses but Angistri, Poros and Aegean are equally as impressive. Hop ashore for a Greek coffee and wander through the cobbled streets of these islands' beautiful towns.

Situated across the northwest of the Aegean Sea off the east coast of Greece, the Sporades are known as the ‘the emerald of the Aegean’ thanks to their rich vegetation and green-blue waters. For anyone looking for natural beauty and seclusion, these 24 islands are an authentic Greek charter destination. The cruising conditions are ideal for a yacht charter and the summer months are warm and dry. Skiathos with its famous Koukounaries beach, Alonissos home of the monk seal, and Skopelos, where scenes from the Hollywood movie Mamma Mia were shot are not to be missed.
