With over 6,000 breathtaking islands, it can be quite difficult to decide where to spend your next yacht charter vacation when visiting Greece. Is it going to be the romantic Santorini, with the incredible sunsets in volcanic Oia? The “enfant terrible” of this dazzling country, Mykonos? Corfu, with its pink sand beaches, or perhaps the cradle of western civilization, the metropolitan Athens?
The only way to truly experience Greece is to onboard one of our fantastic yachts for charter - that way you don’t have to settle for one astounding target. Instead, we can help you organize the most relaxing luxury yacht charter where you can wake up to a new blue horizon each day, while all your worries will be taken care of by an experienced marine crew.
Just one flight away from any major city in the world, this Mediterranean country awaits you to explore millennia of historic heritage, and enjoy the spectacular gastronomic scene, and thousands of turquoise beaches.
Find the perfect motor yacht, sailing yacht or catamaran on our website or feel free to contact us directly - we will make sure to find the floating palace of your dreams for your next adventure and let the fun begin.
When island hopping through this striking coastal paradise, you will have the opportunity to visit 18 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Athens Acropolis, Rhodes, Crete, and Meteora. A true treat for those who like to discover ancient mysteries, Greece is a bucket list destination drenched in history.
When you moor in your luxurious marina in Athens and decide to go for a night in the town, you can choose between 148 venues for a show - the capital has more theatres than any other city in the world, as well as the highest number of archaeological museums.
Wandering through classical cities and monasteries doesn’t spark your interest? The diverse flora and fauna might impress you, then, with many autochthonous species, you might bump into during your cruise, including over 200 hundred bird species, various seals, frogs, turtles and butterflies. When you don your luxury yacht’s diving gear, you will be introduced to the rich aquatic world - greet the dolphins, or bring your underwater camera to snap pictures of the thousands of fish species, sponges, sea urchins and other inhabitants of the deep blue.
Even a dive in Greece is a historic lesson - if you choose the Peloponnese for your luxury charter holiday, you will have the opportunity to visit Pavlopetri, the 5,000 years old sunken city that lies in the azure Vatika Bay where the water is so translucent, you can see the layout of one of the world’s first urbanistically planned cities while snorkelling.
Whatever it is that your idea of a dream summer holiday consists of, you will easily find it in Greece. The hardest part is deciding which city to choose as your base - everything else you can leave up to us.
Say “Yassas'' (Hi in Greek) to the seductive sunsets and volcanic wonders of the most romantic island on Earth. Certainly one of the most prestigious summer destinations, it has long been a magnet for celebrities and A-listers - don’t be surprised if you bump into Brad Pitt, Shakira, or Lady Gaga in your chic marina.
While the sleepy volcano once devastated the island, it also resulted in the out worldly beauty it boasts today, including colourful beaches that come in every imaginable shade of red, black, and white, and the legendary caldera (a large hollow formed when a volcano erupts and collapses), that, along with the sunsets, is Santorini’s largest asset.
The whitewashed Cycladic houses with the easily recognizable blue domes are dotted with fashionable boutiques where you’ll easily find a Vogue editor hunting their next statement summer piece. Find your next white caftan to pose for pictures while cruising. When you moor for the day, you will have the opportunity to relax and unwind in one of the numerous trendy bars and restaurants that offer spectacular dishes, or perhaps discover the secrets of times long gone by. We recommend a visit to the Akrotiri, the Greek version of Pompei - a Bronze Age settlement devastated in the volcanic eruption in the 16 century BC when the ash helped preserve artworks of the era for generations to come.
Or perhaps you’d just like to relax with a cocktail in hand - if so, climb the enchanted castle of Oia and allow yourself to be seduced by the twilight and panoramic vistas.
Must See in Santorini: Oia Castle, Akrotiri
Best Restaurants in Santorini: Argo, Selene, Atlantis City
Best Beaches in Santorini: Red Beach, Perissa Beach, Kamari Beach
Feel the beat of the sets played by the best international DJs on your next visit to the wild child of Greece. A mecca for the fun-loving glitterati, Mykonos is currently known for the best beach bars, but ones that attract sophisticated elites, rather than teenage tourists. From Scorpios to Nammos, the iconic clubs here are just as important to see as the landmarks in the millennia-old villages of Chora or Ano Mera.
Yet, a parallel universe of historic streets awaits you, juxtaposing the haze of the fashion & luxury lifestyle trends you are about to see while sipping cocktails. The main town of the island is famous for its romantic windmills that testify to the Venetian glory of the island - a tour might be the perfect activity for couples on a balmy summer afternoon. Ano Mera is Chora’s less pretentious, yet equally striking twin - find some serenity in the orchards of the 16th-century Panagia Tourliani Monastery or climb the mediaeval Gyzi castle to capture the best views of the turquoise island.
When you’re back onboard your lavish charter yacht, you can visit the splendid Naxos or Syros - your captain will introduce you to the most hidden jewels of Greece.
Must See in Mykonos: Gyzi Castle, Chora Windmills
Best Restaurants in Mykonos: Coo, Kiki's, Baos
Best Beaches in Mykonos: Psarou Beach, Platis Gialos Beach, Super Paradise Beach
Can’t decide between the allure of a big city vacation and the serenity of cruising the sea with a luxury charter yacht? Well, you don’t have to. Athens is the city that has it all. Known as the cradle of western civilization, this metropolis can easily be reached via direct flight from any major city and serves as the ideal base to explore the hypnotising Greek islands. With dozens of glamorous marinas to choose from, Athens has a longstanding affair with yachting and offers quick access to the Saronic Islands and the Cyclades.
When on land, you will have the privilege to explore some of the most recognizable testaments of human civilization, such as the 5th Century B.C. Acropolis with the most indispensable Classic monuments.
Roam around Parthenon, the temple of the Goddess of Wisdom that the capital of Greece was named after, considered to be the greatest masterpiece of the Doric order, and learn history without textbooks. Although it is almost always sunny in Athens, a rainy day could be the perfect occasion to visit the Parthenon or the Archaeological Museum. Or, simply kick back and relax in one of the upscale restaurants, 7 of which were awarded Michelin stars.
When you quench your thirst for knowledge of ancient mysteries, come onboard to enjoy the Mediterranean sun from your luxury charter yacht’s flybridge. If you are ready to mingle with the stars, cruise to the Cycladic hype islands like the previously mentioned Mykonos or Santorini. Or, to enjoy an authentic experience of Greece, opt for the Saronic itinerary and head to the neoclassical Spetses, cosmopolitan Hydra or the marvellous Aegina. Mercifully spared from mass tourism, the Saronic Islands are an archipelago that flaunts pristine nature, casual tavernas with the best traditional Greek food, and scenic villages with an aristocratic charisma.
Must See in Athens: The Parthenon, The Acropolis Museum
Best Restaurants in Athens: Spondi Restaurant, Kulinaristan, Hytra Bar & Restaurant
Best Beaches in Athens: Alimos Beach, Ellinikò Beach, Vouliagmeni Beach
With just these three destinations, it is hard to pass a yachting vacation in Greece. Yet, this country has so many more aces up its sleeve. Ready to explore Milos, an island that will be the closest to flying to the moon until Elon Musk releases its technology, thanks to its outwardly volcanic terrain? Or Kos, the island with incredibly preserved mediaeval towns and more sandy beaches than one can count?
We offer bespoke yacht charter itineraries in the Cycladic, Dodecanese, Saronic, and Ionian islands with the most luxurious charter yachts on the market.
