Yacht Charter in Greece
Greece has played a hugely important role in history, right back from ancient times. Ancient Empires left their mark and the rich archaeological content on the many Greek Islands will leave you wanting to come back time and again. It is a huge area that reveals something new with every visit. If you decide on the exact area for your yacht charter holiday, we can promise you a rich experience.
When you select Greece as your preferred region, we can offer cruises in any of the four groups of islands, the Dodecanese, the Cyclades, the Saronic or Ionian Islands.
The largest of the Dodecanese Islands is Rhodes, close to the South West Coast of Turkey. We can combine a visit to Rhodes, nearby Symi and Kos with time in Turkey, perhaps Marmaris, Datca or Bodrum? At a local level, the tourist industries of Greece and Turkey are great friends and you can experience two lovely countries in one luxury charter yacht vacation.
The Cyclades has two particularly popular holiday islands, Santorini and Mykonos yet in some ways its focus is an uninhabited island, Delos which is regarded as sacred. Mythology tells us that the islands were formed when Poseidon, the God of the Sea became angry with the sea nymphs and turned them into stone. Apollo and Artemis were said to have been born on Delos and no one is allowed to give birth or die there.
The Saronic Islands are close to the Greek Mainland and its capital, Athens. As a result of their location, they receive many Greek holidaymakers as well as those from further afield. Our standard charter yacht itineraries include the best of the islands as well as a chance to see Athens. If you approach us as a group and can hire the whole yacht, we can agree a bespoke itinerary with you with the only real constraint being time.
The final set of islands in the Aegean are the Ionian Islands west of the Greek Mainland. They include Corfu which was arguably the first Greek Island to attract mass tourism, Kefalonia, the largest and Lefkas which is joined to the Greek Mainland via a bridge.
