Spring Sailing in Greece

Spring sailing in Greece is a different experience to the summer; the countryside is much greener, the spring flowers are in bloom, the ports are quiet and there’s always plenty of space in the tavernas. Even better, flights are cheaper.

Come and start your summer early by gaining some summer sun without the crouds or the heat of the summer.

The boats

Well the boats are the same, but the availability of the yacht you might like is a lot better; anything from 30’ to 50’.

You get have the benefits of greater choice of yacht, cheaper charter prices, cheaper airfares, fewer boats on the water, especially north towards Athens, and no issues in space in ports or tavernas in popular spots.

Yachts for couples

Generally yachts up to 38’ are suitable for couples, with the smaller yachts having two cabins; a forepeak and rear cabin (which can work nicely as a storage and dressing room), and the larger yachts (35’ and up) having three cabins; his and hers storage and dressing room!

But there is nothing stopping a couple chartering a larger boat, just remember a larger boat is heavier, with larger sails and sheets, and depending upon your experience, may benefit from having a larger crew.
