For centuries Greece has been identified with the sea and sailing. It's islands have been rhapsodised by poets, artists, academics and mystics over the millennia. Each island has its own distinct personality and features, including cuisine, customs, historic ruins, and a vibrant, contemporary culture that enchants and entices visitors.
Greece consists of five very separate cruising areas: The Cyclades, the Ionian, the Saronic Gulf & Peloponnese, the Dodecanese and the Sporades. And everywhere places of extreme beauty, hundreds of islands, beautiful sandy beaches, traditional harbours and small ports. Every place is uniquely different from the other.
The Cyclades are the picture-perfect postcard capital of Greece while the Ionian Islands in the West are tranquil and verdant providing a pleasing mix of traditional harbours and beautiful beaches. The Saronic Gulf, closer to Athens, offers picturesque, well-protected anchorages with short sailing distances while further afield and running down the coastline of Turkey the Dodecanese abounds in history and tradition. Largely off the beaten track the Sporades in the north east has an amazing natural beauty.
Onboard a luxury charter catamaran, you'll be able to enjoy the great diversity on offer, exploring islands, many of which are only accessible by water.
Sailing catamarans are perfectly suited to a Greek Island charter. They have major advantages over similar-sized monohulls as they have a wide beam (width) which creates a massive central platform for dining and entertaining, versatile social areas at the bow and transom, and two hulls for abundant and private cabin space.
