Charters ALWAYS begin at 17:00 (5:00 pm) on the first day. In case we can deliver the yacht earlier, we will do so, but this cannot be guaranteed. Charters end at 09:00 am on the last day of charter.
We require our clients to return to bases the evening before the end of the Charter, sleep on board and depart around 09:00 am, giving us the time to get the yacht ready for the next charter.

BARE-BOAT CHARTERS (i.e. without hiring a skipper) Please note, our yachts are chartered bare boat, under the condition that at least one member of the crew have a skipper's sailing certificate. One sailing certificate is compulsory for sailing in Greece.
In Greece when chartering a bareboat yacht, according to the port authorities’ requests, the client must provide an original sailing certificate/license.
(in English language or officially translated)
Certificates for motor yachts, sailing on day-light only, or weather limitations are not accepted by the Port Authorities.
All our yachts are fully insured against damage to hull, gear, and equipment as well as for third-party liability. Please give your attention that yacht’s insurance does not cover your personal belongings and injuries.
PERSONAL TRAVEL INSURANCE:
With all holidays it is advisable to take out personal travel insurance to cover, cancelling or cutting short your holiday, Emergency medical expenses, Travel delay and missed departure, Personal possessions etc. There are many companies/travel agencies that provide this, and you may also have a cover with your household policy.
In all our bases, provisioning is not a problem since there are supermarkets inside or close to the marina of departure.
If you want to order in advance, fill in our provisioning form and everything will be delivered to you upon your arrival on the yacht.
Ask us for our provisions list and do not forget to return your order to us at least ten days before your arrival.
