GREECE

Discovering Greece

A Fusion of Lively Ancient Cities and Stunning Isles


Embarking on a yacht charter in Greece ensures an enchanting journey through the Mediterranean like no other. Boasting an extensive coastline surpassing that of any other European destination and encompassing approximately 6,000 captivating islands, Greece presents boundless prospects for exploration during your upcoming superyacht adventure. Whether your heart yearns for vibrant escapades on the sun-kissed shores of Mykonos, a serene retreat amidst the romantic allure of Santorini, or tranquil moments in the serene Ionian Islands, a yacht charter in Greece promises to fulfill every longing and aspiration.

The Greek waters are home to a multitude of islands, categorized into six main clusters, from the Sporades Islands to Crete, marking the southernmost point of the Aegean Sea. Each cluster possesses its own distinctive character and allure.

Yacht charter holidays primarily focus on three island groups: the Ionian Islands, the Argo-Saronic Islands, and the Cyclades. Situated closer to Athens, the capital of Greece, these groups offer favorable cruising distances and reduced fuel expenses. While there are numerous stunning islands beyond these popular groups, such as Crete and the Dodecanese, they are closer to Turkey, resulting in longer voyages and higher fuel costs. Despite the scarcity of marina facilities, the Greek Islands boast breathtaking coastlines.

With its blend of beauty, history, and crystal-clear waters, Greece offers a plethora of experiences, from the vibrant mainland to the secluded island retreats. Some islands are only accessible by boat, adding to the allure of this cruising destination. Explore streets lined with whitewashed buildings, wander through olive groves and vineyards, and visit ancient ruins that evoke a legendary past.
