Yacht charters Greece & Turkey

A lot of visitors have shared their chartering experiences with me and perhaps you as well can help other sailors by reporting your own charter experiences. These reports show that just a few were fully satisfied, and too many were disappointed in their charter companies.

I have to admit, my friends and I have made the same mistakes with inferior companies but now we have found those trustworthy charter businesses and local fleets, with prices that are – surprisingly enough – very competitive.

Needless to say that we have enjoyed perfect sailing holidays since.

For the Adriatic please see the yacht charters in Croatia page.

The best tips

  • Rent your yacht about 8 months in advance : more affordable, more choice, options like one-ways or 10 days still possible.
  • Budget tips.
  • In two weeks [2] you will see three times [3] as much as in one week [1]
  • Charter your yacht with the fleet owner directly, without an agent or middleman.
