Sailing in Athens

The Saronic Gulf is ideal for protected and scenic coastal cruising, while the Aegean Sea and the Cyclades offer more wind and the opportunity for exhilarating open-water sailing.  The winds are predictable in both areas, generally southerly, ranging from 10 to 20 knots (11-23 Mph) in the Saronic Gulf and up to 25 knots (28 Mph) in the Aegean.

  • Amorgos

    The dramatic mountainous island of Amorgos is where Luc Besson shot his film The Big Blue and the island still attracts many French film fans as a result. With great walks, some interesting historical sites and a monastery built into the cliffs to explore, plus great beaches, windsurfing in clear turquoise waters and a lovely uncommercialized ambience, an Amorgos yacht charter is a truly special experience.

  • Athens

    Athens. Location of the Acropolis and the Parthenon and the birthplace of European civilization. It’s hard to think of a city with more to offer visitors in the way of history, art and antiquity, but the trendy side of modern Athens may surprise you. An Athens yacht charter allows you to see and take advantage of the very best of both sides of Athens.

  • Kithnos

    Kithnos is known as a traditional island with a lovely, laid-back vibe about it and something of a reputation as a foodie destination. The locals still use donkeys to get themselves and their goods around the narrow village streets and are genuinely welcoming to visitors – perhaps because there are fewer tourists here than on some other islands. A Kithnos yacht charter is a delightful and low-key pleasure.
