Visiting this beautiful country steeped in history and legend, blessed with a famed natural beauty and enjoying a charming culture is a unique experience best enjoyed from the deck of your own charter yacht. Whilst sailing in Greece you can experience the crystal clear waters and mythical shores; feast your eyes on dramatic scenery of turquoise seas set against a pine clad mountain backdrop. Explore ashore ancient temples, Byzantine churches and picture postcard white and blue villages. Enjoy balmy evenings mingling with locals and visitors along elegant and bustling promenades. Observe a spectacular sunset from the quayside of a sleepy, timeless fishing harbour.

Alternatively, charter a yacht from Skiathos and explore the Sporades with their spectacular white sandy beaches and hidden coves.

Life often takes on a leisurely pace in Greece. Each landfall provides numerous cafes and tavernas lining the quayside each offering a wide range of fare. Greek cuisine is experiencing something of a renaissance. Dinner is the main event of the evening, so a little patience is required and it helps to settle into 'the Greek life' and enjoy the whole evening; Start with appetisers like Tzatziki, Taramasalata, Octapus or Dolmades. Discover wonderful vegetarian dishes with okra, artichokes or aubergine. Taste traditional meat dishes with lamb, pork or chicken. Calamari and grilled meat or fish are always available and legendary Greek salads are a meal in themself.
