Onboard The Yacht

 

Do I need experience?

No

If you have hired a Skipper there are no requirements for you to have any experience or sailing knowledge. You will need qualifications and experience to skipper yourself.

Do we sleep onboard the yacht?

Yes

Yachts and catamarans have cabins for you to sleep in. They have comfortable mattresses, shelf space and small robes to store your clothes. The majority of cabins are double however some larger yachts may also have a double bunk onboard. The yachts will be moored from approximately 4pm at the destination harbour until 9am the following morning.

Can I get a yacht with a canopy to shield from the sun?

Yes

We can provide yachts that have a bimini which is a canopy over the yacht’s outdoor seating area. How much sun you are exposed to is then entirely up to yourself - sun tan on deck or sit in the shade. Please mention at Enquiry Stage if you require a bimini. There will be no charge for this.

Is there a shower / toilet onboard?

Yes

All of our yachts have one or more WC/Toilets onboard. When you book a whole yacht the number of WCs will be specified during the enquiry. All yachts also have an onboard hot water shower and an outdoor deck shower which is perfect for cooling down during the day.

Can I learn to sail?

Yes

If you specifically want to learn to sail please mention this at enquiry stage as we will provide an instructor for you.

The types of learn to sail activities you can be involved in include:
- Knot-tying
- Calculating distances
- Hoisting sails
- Anchoring

You do not need experience or qualifications to learn.

Can we cook onboard?

Yes

A fully equipped Galley (kitchen) is on every yacht and catamaran. With so many fresh ingredients in Greece we recommend preparing breakfast and lunch onboard then delight in sampling the local delicacies in authentic and traditional restaurants in the evening.

You can hire a hostess to cook and clean for you for an additional fee. The hostess will require a berth on the yacht. We also have skipper and hostess teams that can share one cabin between them.

Will I have internet and phone reception?

Yes

We are always sailing with land in sight so you have mobile phone reception for most of the holiday. For internet, most bars and cafes have free wifi and some supply computers with internet access.

Are the yachts child-friendly and safe?

Yes

All yachts meet our strict safety requirements and have lifejackets amongst other safety equipment onboard. We can also provide an additional child safety net to secure the perimeter of the yacht. This is available for a small fee so mention this at enquiry stage.
