Emphasis on comfort
Sailways charter company specialises in chartering boats in our native Greece. In addition to safety and quality of service, it places great emphasis on the comfort of its boats. That's why most of their charter boats are equipped to a higher standard. On board you will find air conditioning, heating, bow truster, television, baden plato or generator. In short, everything you need for a carefree holiday.
Top places for sailing in Greece
On Sailways ships you can sail to the most attractive places in the Aegean Sea, such as the Saronic Gulf full of ancient monuments or the Cyclades or the Dodecanese near Turkey. Most boats are available at the Alimos marina in Athens, but a few sailboats and catamarans can also be hired on the popular islands of Mykonos and Rhodes. However, we recommend the Cyclades for more experienced crews, as the proverbial meltemi often blows here in summer.
The Sailways fleet will satisfy both sailors who want a classic sailing yacht (most often represented by Bavaria Cruiser 46–51 models) and those who prefer catamarans. They can choose from the six or seven-cabin Lagoon 42, Lagoon 450 or Leopard 45 models. Several popular powerboats are also on offer. The Sailways charter team is made up of former captains, skippers and deck guides, and passionate sailors, so they will give you a detailed introduction to the boats at check-in and even advise you on the itinerary if necessary.
Lots of extra services
Sailways offers plenty of additional services for clients in addition to boat hire. It can arrange airport to marina transfers, purchase basic groceries and have them delivered directly on board, or accommodate you in a friendly hotel for the night or day after arrival or before departure if your flight times don't fit exactly into the boat charter itinerary. They also have a wide range of experienced skippers that can deliver to your boat or consult with you on your planned itinerary.
Day trips and cruises
In addition to traditional weekly or bi-weekly cruises, Sailways offers day and half-day cruises, often on smaller powerboats. All take place in Greece, where they are based. We recommend these shorter trips to anyone who wants to experience what it is like to be on a boat and what it entails, so you can get rid of your fears once and for all and see if you are the right person for sailing.
Greece, the cradle of civilisation, but also an increasingly popular yachting destination. Thanks to the mostly sandy subsoil, it's also a great place to anchor, so you're not just reliant on marinas and buoys. The Greeks are also very nice people, they don't chase every euro, and they often don't even charge you anything for a few hours at the pier. The local cuisine is definitely worth trying and the options of where to go are plentiful. We've put together our Top 7 destinations for yachting in Greece in 2023 in this article. Discover with us a yachting paradise brimming with islands, ancient cities and picturesque bays.
