Book the Best Skippered Charters in Greece

Your very own slice of Paradise!

The Greek coastline and islands are ideal for yacht cruising. Much of the region and islands are still unspoilt, providing many special opportunities for that chance encounter with dolphins and other wildlife. Exploring the coastline, islands and bays by private yacht guarantees an unforgettable holiday that you will treasure for a lifetime. Sail in a luxurious sailing yacht with Elysium Yachting to magnificent beaches that are only accessible by yacht.

Your yacht includes a British RYA qualified skipper and is ideally suited to the Islands of Greece. It has a spacious deck space for outdoor relaxation, and is typically approximately 50 feet long. It can accommodate up to 8 guests in separate double cabins with ensuite toilets and showers. The yacht is fully equipped with the most up-to-date safety and navigation systems. All you have to do is book your berth and turn up at Lefkas Marina on the day of the booking. A 2 week booking is automatically discounted by 20%, so this might be just the ticket for you to get away from it all, breathe the fresh sea air, and wake up in the most beautiful anchorages you have ever seen, for 2 whole weeks!

Our general routing needs to be a little flexible to cater for possible increment weather conditions. Each day your Skipper will advise on the best plan for the day, subject to wind and weather conditions at the time.

The normal cruise plan for each day is to start after breakfast at approximately 09.30 to 10.00hrs and sail for 2 hours, then stop in a beautiful island bay for a swim and lunch. This lunch and swim stop can be from 1.5hrs to 2hrs. After a relaxing lunch, we can carry on sailing for another 2 hours to another romantic bay for a swim stop. From there, we can proceed to a near-by village port for the evening and night. Breakfasts and light lunches are included. You will need to buy food for cooking on anchor and  evening beach BBQs.. The yacht has fridges to keep your food and drinks fresh. All the local villages offer a variety of  restaurants or we can anchor and have a beach BBQ. The itinerary is flexible, tailored around your wishes.

We can anchor for one or two nights and have a boat party/beach BBQ, depending on weather conditions at the time. In this event, you’ll need to shop for food for lunch and dinner.

Greece and its islands are historically renowned, interesting and friendly. It is a welcoming country where you can soak up the atmosphere of an ancient civilization, savor the bustling market towns and villages mixed with as much time as you can take in the soothing evening sun. Whether on land or sea, the scenery is spectacular. The Mediterranean coast and islands are surprisingly unspoiled, with large high-rise building developments restricted to the larger towns. The big advantage of travelling on board a private yacht is the ability to reach remote beaches, anchorages, archaeological sites and deserted coves with often no other boat in sight. Our boats will sail, winds permitting, or gently motor along your route. There are a variety of routes to follow depending on your interests. We can also offer a number of extended itineraries combining the coastline with the Islands.

Watch this space for our specials like Yoga and Bicycling tours, where you can sail with an expert yoga instructor who will teach you yoga on sandy secluded beaches. We have also teamed up with local bicycle rental companies and will be offering bicycle tours on selected islands soon.
