Cabin Charter (Skipperd Shareboating)

How our trips are organized

Our style of sailing trip is called “skippered shareboating”. This is the most versatile way of sailing the Greek islands. It combines adventure, comfort, cost saving, companionship, learning and freedom.
Advantages include:
  • You can charter a cabin or a berth if you are single traveler. If you are travelling with friends you can charter as many cabins or berths as you want. 
  • You do not need to know anything about sailing. Our skippers will be happy to teach you to sail.
  • You join your yacht any designated date you have chosen and booked. Embarkation points are Rhodes or Kos. We make all arrangements so your embarkation is simple and hassle-free. 
  • Our skippers know the uncommercialised fishing villages where simple life remains unaffected by tourism and time. Cabin charter from Kos to Rhodos
  • Our shareboating(cabin charter) departures are guaranteed.
  • You book for one week minimum or two weeks for the round trip.
  • On your cabin charter holiday you decide to be as active or passive as you like. Whatever your desire from sun bathing or reading to setting the sails -the choice is yours.
  • Decision making on board is as democratic as possible. Greece, after all is the home of democracy. If we are all having a particularly good time on an island we try to extend our stay.
  • Our yachts are chosen for a sensible compromise between speed, comfort and safety. They are sleek, luxurious, fully equipped and superbly maintained. They include cooking facilities, refrigerators and 2-5 bathrooms. 
  • Our yachts are from some of the world’s most famous designers, including Jeanneau and Bavaria.
  • Itineraries are fascinating and varied. You visit cosmopolitan islands with five star resorts like Rhodes and quitter islands famous for sacred sites like Simi and Halki
  • Skippers are highly trained and speak English. They can tell you a lot about Greek culture and history as well as sailing. They will help you improve your sailing skills and welcome you to take the helm from time to time.
  • We spend one or two days on each island. You have plenty of time to buy local goods, explore ancient site, and  sample local produce – wine, cheeses or to relax on secluded beaches.
  • We provide snorkeling and fishing gear on board each yacht.
  • You will have hostess onboard to prepare breakfast and light lunch daily. In the evenings you can eat at the local tavernas where the quality of food is excellent and prices very affordable. Ask your skipper to recommend the best restaurant or taverna.
  • We take a maximum of 8 participants + crew on our largest yacht – a Sun Odyssey 52.2 ft (Jeanneau). Our usual group size is 6 to 8 people per yacht.
