You needn't be an expert seaman or skipper to enjoy Greece by Sailboat Cruises! As long as you want to have fun, relax, enjoy good food and you desire to explore new destinations, then we are what you are looking for!
Captain Jacopo Maglieri, who is responsible for navigation, routes, and mooring will ensure that you reach every destination in style and comfort while the on-board services (cooking and cleaning) will be taken care of by our hostess.
Life on a boat is truly a once in a lifetime experience – despite the restraint of being on board, you will be captivated by the excitement of sailing, the kaleidoscopic blues of the water will entertain you while you make new friends or simply sunbathe on the upper deck… And why not take the helm yourself and experience that powerful sensation of sailing across the seas guided by our Skipper who will also help you understand the waves, the wind, and sailing… He will also be available to teach you the art of sailing.
The accommodation of the cabins will be decided at the time of boarding by taking into consideration everyone's needs wherever possible.
If you are single, you can choose between sharing a cabin with another guest (possibly of the same gender) or you can book the entire double cabin for yourself by paying a 75% surcharge.
Cabin accommodation will be decided upon boarding by the crew members – the double cabins in the stern have a shared bathroom. However, if you book the shipowner's cabin in the bow (wider and more spacious), it has a private bathroom. This cabin has a €80,00 surcharge.
Groups of up to 8 guests can charter "Plenis Velis" for their exclusive use. Routes and destinations can be customized by the guests upon approval by the Captain for your safety and security (routes depend on sea and weather conditions).

Meals on board
The food and drinks are bought with the money from the kitty which is paid to the crew-members upon boarding (€80,00 per person for week). Since it is a family environment, the choice of food to be purchased and the meals are decided together – and if you fancy yourself a cook, feel free to take over the cooker and kitchen!

Routes & Itinerary changes
The Captain reserves the right to change and or modify routes, itinerary, ports/moors and stop-overs according to weather conditions and or urgent/emergency necessities.. This is to ensure the safety and security of everyone on board.
During the day, mobile phones, laptops / tablets / iPads and digital cameras can be charged on board (220V). Hairdryers on the other hand may not be used because of their elevated electrical consumption. You may use hairdryers and hair irons etc, once we dock at the harbours where there are plenty of facilities that cater for such needs, or on the boat itself.
The two shared-bathrooms are regularly sanitized.
What to bring
We recommend you pack your belongings in just one bag that can be folded to optimize space (for example a kit bag or backpack) The dress code is informal so we suggest comfy clothes like bathing suits, shorts, t-shirts, trousers/jeans, sweaters and a light windbreaker, flip flops or trainers. It is also suggested to pack any diving equipment like masks, flippers and snorkels and you must bring your own beach towels. There are no special requirements for shoes on board.
First Aid Kit
We have a fully equipped First Aid kit on board, however if you need any special medication/treatment, please bring your own.
