Some reading on Greece
Greece has 9,000 miles of coastline and over 2,000 islands, just 170 of which are inhabited. There is no better way to see the Greek Islands and the coast of mainland Greece than on your own private yacht.
The majestic isles of the Cyclades, Dodecanese, Sporades, and Ionians provide a picturesque and historic backdrop for a Greek sailing trip. Regardless of where your Greece charter begins, each area provides a distinct vantage point from which to enjoy the islands in tranquilly or in resort towns filled with white-sand beaches, sophisticated cuisine, and fashionable stores.
Open-water crossings or voyages in tranquil gulfs and bays are options for Greece yacht charters, as is the opportunity to explore fascinating ancient ruins. When it comes to chartering in Greece, it all comes down to personal preference.
Several of the islands have airports and quick helicopter access, making meeting your yacht a breeze. You may travel between the islands to visit hidden beaches, learn about each island's distinct local culture, and sample new food and goods every day.
