Luxury Yacht Charter: Greek Island

greese greek island yacht charterChartering a yacht to the Greek islands offers an exceptional once in a life time sailing experience. We recommend spending a few days in Athens to explore the amazing and historical culture before boarding your yacht. The yacht charter season starts April and ends in November. The high season period is from late July until early September.

Sailing in the high season...
The most crowded sailing areas will be Corfu, Lefkas and the Saronic.
 You will also find a lot of non-sailing tourists on the popular islands of Mykonos, Ios, Santorini, Kos, Rhodes, Lesvos, etc.
 In the Aegean Sea the strong Meltemi (dry wind blowing from the north ) could not only be a nuisance but also a hazard for sailors.
 Yacht charters will be about 10% more expensive.
 You will have more choice of cabin charters, flotillas and charter flights.

Sailing in April, May and June...
Witness an abundance of flowers and lush green vegetation due to the spring rains of March. This particularly concerns the Cyclades and Dodecanese, which will gradually turn dry and barren during the high yacht charter season. Despite losing some of its freshness and most of the flowers, the Ionian and Northern Aegean islands will remain green and fertile throughout the whole sailing season.
 More affordable yacht charters are common
 Fewer charter yachts and more space in ports and available anchorages.
 In the Ionian, the Maistro delivers steady reliable winds; much like in the Aegean where there are no strong Meltemi winds yet.

Sailing Greece in September and October…
Fewer yachts and tourists: Especially in the popular areas of the Ionian Sea and around Athens the amount of tourists will drop dramatically after the first week(s) of September.
 Steady winds in the Ionian (Maistro wind) and no Meltemi winds in the Aegean.
 More affordable yacht charters are common
 Seawater with tropical temperatures, 28-30 °C (83-87 °F). Ideal for swimming at beaches, snorkeling at anchorages and diving.
