Motorsailes & vacations in Santorini - Stefani.

Santorini vacations on motorsailers

The romantic venue of Santorini island is rapidly turned into a small but usuable base for yacht charters, ranging from bareboats, catamarans (either sailing or motoryachts/poweryachts) to the luxurious motorsailers for the cruising gourmets. It goes without saying that these motorsailers - similar to their sister ships, the gulets, gullets, kaiks, kaikis or caiques, used for motorsailer vacations along the Turquoise coasts of Turkey - are offered fully crewed, with chef cook, hostess, deck hands and of course a captain. It is recommended - even on a honeymoon with just the two of you - to hire these gulets or motorsailers as a full charter (private charter). This way you will have all the freedom in where to go and what to see, whereas on a cabin charter the yacht charter agency will decide on the itinerary (in the Cyclades), balancing all the couples' interests and preferences.

The chef cook runs a very sophisticated kitchen - the nautical term is a “galley” - so full board allows you to dine like kings even when anchored in picturesque secluded bays without tavernas or restaurants.

A good gullet - ideal for vacations in Greece - has good king-size beds in cabins with private ensuite bathrooms and toilets - this is a rather useful characteristic with which to avoid the dreadful and notorious party gulets. The latter are very cheap versions altered to cater for as much party going youth as possible, mainly serving as transportation from bar to beach and back. Needless to say, that many romantic honeymoon seekers are tempted by this cheaper option for their vacations in Greece and Santorini, yet the good motorsailers offered through the thrustworthy yacht charter companies are perhaps more expensive but worth every penny. Vacations on motorsailers in Greece, and in particular the Cyclades and Santorini are extremely romantic with glorious sunsets, a plethora of anchorages in translucent blue bays, breathing the rich ancient history with omnipresent archaeology.
