Captained Yacht Charter - Greek Islands Sailing Cruises
What is a Captained Yacht Charter....
The most usual way to have a sailing holiday in Greece is to charter a bareboat yacht. This means that the charterer pays for provisions, water, fuel, mooring fees, end cleaning and must leave a damage deposit. If you don't have a qualified yacht captain in your group, then you hire a local one at around 140 euros per day plus food & tip.
The more up-market option is a fully crewed yacht charter sailing holiday. This is where you and your guests are treated like VIPs on a more expensive yacht and the crew cater to your every whim and desire. This is typically the most expensive option.
So where does Captained Yacht Charter fit?
Captained Yacht Charter lies between bareboat with rent-a-skipper and the traditional fully crewed luxury yacht charter.
A Captained Yacht Charter has the following characteristics & benefits that make it an attractive choice:
If this sounds like the type of sailing holiday for you then Metallas Yachting is a recommended company with many years of experience in organizing captained yacht charters in the Greek Islands.
Greek Islands Sailing Cruises
You will be sailing the islands aboard a customized 45 to 55 foot sailing yacht, accomodating up to 12 guests in a functional and spacious interior with 3 to 5 double berth cabins. Whether relaxing below deck after exploring a village or sunbathing on deck after a peaceful swim in a remote bay, your comfort and enjoyment is assured.
Beginner and novice sailors will also benefit from the opportunity to learn first hand about sailing through instruction from the skipper and onboard sailing books. The skipper, in addition to being responsible for the safe and enjoyable sailing of the yacht, is also acting as personal guide and caretaker for the guests both on and off shore.
A Greek Islands Sailing Cruise with Metallas Yachting or Aegean Cruises is the ideal environment to meet people from different countries and cultures, enjoy the wonderful Greek Island life and seas, and visit the best islands and villages.
Whether it is dinner and late partying in Myconos, a stroll through the harbortown in Naxos, an afternoon spent exploring the archeological island of Delos, a morning of shopping in the chic harbor town of Hydra, or a peaceful day on an uninhabited island, you can do it all, and without the hassle and cost of booking hotels, transportation, or tours.
