Bareboat chartering in Greece will take you to locations you cannot approach with a car or any other way, protect your privacy and expand your horizons. It is easy, affordable and available for everyone. Let’s see bellow some of the basic concept regarding, bareboat chartering in Greece Yachtsailing.gr offers.
Back in the 1950’s if you wanted to sail anywhere in the world you would have to take a big decision, sell your house, buy a sailing yacht (like the ones that would cost a fortune and fit just a couple onboard), pack all your home into a suitcase, grab your wife and start for a lifetime journey that would last for a minimum of 24 months. While time passed by, a lot of ground has been covered since then. It the early 1970’s the first steps of ‘renting a boat’ appeared in the background. Some companies did the first steps and offered their boats to a small number of visitors that were in the position to handle a yacht and wanted to sail in different territories. As time passed by the companies that were chartering yachts became more and more efficient and on the other hand the number of visitors that wanted to meet the world on a charter boat were substantially increasing, plus the experience and mentality of charterers grew into higher levels. In the decade of 1990 in Greece the bareboat chartering was a huge success and I consider this decade the best for the chartering world of Greece. When I say ‘best’ I mean that the system was so booming that everyone was happy, both clients and companies, while the service was at quite a nice standard for that point in time. In the decade of 2000 the major change in the market was apart from the quality of boats available, the existence of Internet. Internet has really changed the world of chartering and made us all part of an international puzzle. Information became available for everyone and everything was ‘easier’ in terms of planning, selecting, travelling and finally chartering and boat. I will come back to that later in our analysis. In this decade, bareboat chartering is one of the most popular way to visit the Greek islands. The reason is pretty simple. There is no other way to see so many places in one trip, you can get to bays you cannot approach by other means of transportation, you have unique privacy and totally personal moments. In addition it is easy to plan and book, you can select from a variety of boats available, it is affordable-not to say a killer value for money- and most importantly safe.
Taking a closer look to what bareboat charter in Greece has to offer today, we will see tremendous potential and limitless choices. You can sail anytime, anywhere and for how long you wish. This has an added value when we speak about Greece which is a country with 2500 islands most of which are habited. The island hopping with a sailing yacht or catamaran is considered as the most interesting vacation to the majority of the visitors of the Greek seas. Jump from one island to the other and explore different locations and tastes according to your desire.
In order to be qualified to charter a bareboat yacht on your own, you need to have a sailing certificate that proves you have the knowledge and skills to sail a boat. In addition you either need to have a crew member with an additional sailing certificate or to fill in a statement that he is capable of handling a yacht. When you arrive to Athens you will be handed over your boat in detail, spend quite a decent amount of time to get familiarized with the basic functions, safety equipment, navigation tools and optional extras. During check in we like to spend time with our guests since it is important to feel secure and safe when sailing. At the same time we will do a briefing together and will propose possible routes and interesting places to visit according to the weather. In Yachtsailing.gr we like to know your name and we will be on standby during all of your trip.
Bareboat chartering in Greece is really affordable for everyone. If you divide the number of guests to the price you get the boat for a week you will notice that it is one of the cheapest vacation types available. If you consider also the value of being in any island it really is the best value for money, holiday type available. However there are some basic suggestions you could follow if you like to take advantage of the added value of bareboat chartering. These would be the following:
Set a budget: It would be helpful for your trip if you knew what would be the amount you would like to spend so you could be focused in specific boats and prices.
Plan early: If you check the value of a yacht for a week and compare it to the airfares of a charter group you will notice that it’s really important to plan your vacation early. You will get far cheaper prices and your grand total will be way cheaper.
Check availability: If you plan earlier, you will have more choices on determining which the best yacht for your needs, actually is. Browse through various choices we can offer and don’t hesitate to ask for advice to one of our experienced trip planners.
Set a backup route: The best sailing vacation is the combination of weather and location. This means that it would be nice to have a backup plan in case the weather is not ideal to your initial destination. The most big advantage when sailing from Athens is that it gives you numerous possibilities on where to sail
When booking online there are some basic issues that require attention. These have to do with international practices when you are looking to charter a bareboat sailing yacht. You must first know who you are dealing with. There are numerous companies out there that offer everything and promise the impossible. They claim to have 150 yachts (which is impossible) and many times they are not licensed. In Yachtsailing.gr we strongly advise you to have a look in the ORIGINAL photos of the yacht you are looking to rent. Always ask the name of the boat and check to see if the photos you have been shown are the original ones and not ‘brochure’ photos where everything looks lice. In addition, we are licensed by the Governmental Tourism organization and we have been acting as a member since 1999. Be aware of the online scammers who are not permitted to act as a yacht broker or claiming to be the owner of the yachts. We do not want to upscale any second thought you may have however there are some basic rules when trying to book a bareboat sailing yacht online.
For those of you that you are wondering what is included in the price of a bareboat charter of a sailing yacht or catamaran, we would like to clarify that in terms of equipment, in Yachtsailing.gr we strive for providing the most equipped yachts available in the market. We like to prepare our yachts setup as a private boat. All of our plotters are placed outside in the plotter, all of our heads are electric and in the boats available we have fitted generators and air conditions for your comfort. Apart from these ‘goodies’, for us, the term standard means EVERYTHING’ you could wish for onboard, for your navigation such as plotter, autopilot, bow-thruster, electric winch etc. For your comfort you have a dinghy and outboard plus all the extras described in the yacht’s detailed specification page. Your galley equipment includes everything you could have in your home but in a yacht friendly setup. Lastly but very important is your safety equipment that is the top of the range and yearly inspected so you could feel safe while being onboard.
I would like to point out that all of our yachts have been inspected by the Lloyds registry and we have a yearly certification that proves the level of standards we work at. It is a big honor to say that we can provide Lloyds certified boats for your bareboat chartering in the Greek islands.
Therefore, we strongly encourage you to come visit Greece and her magnificent islands onboard one of our sailing yachts or catamarans. We will try to make you vacation smooth and salty while all of our yachts will sail you with safety and style throughout the Greek seas.
