Sailboats 31' to 61' "Bareboat" or with an English speaking skipper and/or cook. These boats are available at our bases throughout our Eastern Med bases. They are built and designed by some of the best boat builders in the world . Our Bareboat fleet of boats includes Jeanneau, Beneteau, Ocean Star, and Nautitech & Lagoon Catamarans, Your budget, and accommodations needs will guide us to recommend the one boat that suits you best and at the best rate.
Bareboat or Hire a Skipper
Sailboats that have an overall length of 37 ft. to 60 ft are available for bareboat on crewed charters. These sail boats can be chartered without a hired skipper or can be hired with a skipper. If you and at least one of your crewmates have sailing licenses or certifications, or can provide references of sailing proficiency to skipper your own boat of the size you plan to charter, you can be your own skipper. You should consider hiring a skipper for your charter if either you do not have the experience yourself or if you want to sail the boat but not take on the responsibility of the charter.
One reason very experienced captains take on a skipper is the local knowledge of the sailing conditions as well as the knowledge of the best places to see along your sailing itinerary.
Luxury Fully Crewed Power and Sailing Yachts in the Eastern Mediterranean range from 65 to 190 feet. These yachts can accommodate 2 to 50 guests. Emphasis is on luxury! These yachts have a permanent crew of captain, cook, first mate, (or more depending upon the boat's size and needs), highly qualified, friendly professionals . In boith Greece and Turkey, we also have a number of the traditional wood hull sailing vessels called GULETS, which were once used for distant voyages or fishing in the Aegean.
