Greek Sails is one of the longest-established sailing holiday businesses in Greece being founded in 1983, the very early days of sailing charter holidays.

But we don’t simply have 30 years’ experience; we are also very proud that our customers have been kind enough to award us ‘5 out of 5’ (excellent) reviews of our sailing holidays on TripAdvisor - “Sailing perfection”, “Amazing company”, “This would be difficult to beat” and “Best Yacht charter in Greece...” are just some of the kind comments. You can read the reviews in full on our ‘Customer reviews’ page or at TripAdvisor.

Sailing holiday & yacht charter options we offer

We provide a wide range of yacht charter & sailing holiday options and are always happy to discuss any specific requirements you may have.

Yachts on flotilla sailing together during a flotilla holiday, Poros, Greece
Flotilla holidays
Sail individually, but as a member of a small group of yachts. Flotilla holidays are ideal for families with younger children, those who feel having a lead boat and advice readily to hand helps them and those new to yacht chartering
 
A yacht on bareboat charter rests in the evening light, Kipirissi, Peloponnese, Greece
Bareboat yacht charter
Skipper your own yacht and sail wherever & for however long you wish, only needing to return to the yacht charter base at the end of your charter. The yacht charter equivalent of renting a car!
 
Enjoy your own yacht charter & route, but let the skipper worry about the yacht during a skippered charter sailing holiday
Skippered & assisted (or crewed) yacht charter
Charter your own yacht & have the freedom of a bareboat yacht charter, but with the assistance of a skipper or crew member to help you. Excellent if you are short-crewed, a little rusty, or are otherwise uncertain about skippering yourself
 
Enjoy the sun & let the skipper take the strain during a cabin charter sailing holiday
Cabin charter & Adventure sailing
Charter a cabin or just a single berth & sail with other ‘cabin charterers’, sailing under the guidance of a skipper. Excellent if you want to enjoy the sun, not worry about managing the yacht, but are interested in ‘helping out’ with the sailing
 
Enjoy a sailing course in the sun & learn to sail yourself
Join a training yacht with other students, or organise a group of friends or family and charter your own yacht, all learning together & leave Greece with ‘Competent Crew’, ‘Day Skipper’ or other RYA sailing qualification
 
Split your sailing holiday between time afloat in on your own yacht charter & time in a villa, apartment or hotel
Sail & Stay sailing holidays
Spread your holiday between a week sailing and a week in a villa, apartment or hotel that we organise for you. Of course, you can also simply stop-over in Athens en route to or from us and enjoy one of the great capitals of the ancient world

Flotilla holidays & yacht charters from Poros, Greece

Whatever type of sailing holiday or yacht charter you opt for, Poros is the ideal starting point. A quiet quay with local eating establishments, traditional fishermen as your neighbours, the occasional ferry and easy access to your chosen sailing area and Athens airport.

Spare yourself the nightmare of starting your sailing holiday from one of Athens’ noisy coastal ports such as Kalamaki or Lavrio. Enjoy the beginning and end of your sailing holiday by wandering the quayside restaurants & bars of Poros or shopping in the winding streets. You even save yourself the long beat back north to an Athens base against the Meltemi. In Poros, your sailing holiday starts the moment you step off the ferry.

Rod Heikell’s West Aegean pilot guide describes Poros by saying; “The approach to the town is one of the most attractive in Greece...” and goes on, “...it has something else other than the appearance of a little Greek Venice, it has a sensuality, a calm, and what can only be described as a conviviality...”. But Rod Heikell is not alone, Lawrence Durrell, described it as “the happiest place I have ever known” and in her “Greek Odyssey” television series, Joanna Lumley reveals how her love affair with Greece started with a chance visit to Poros; “It was just enchanting...the best holiday ever”. What better place to start and end your sailing holiday!

Whichever way you look at it, Poros is a great place to start and end your sailing holiday and well worth the extra hour of travel. Greek Sails are also the only yacht charter company in Poros, so if you are being offered a sailing holiday with a “Saronic fleet” and from a Poros base, it will be with us; there is no other yacht base here.
