Skipper Information

What language will the Skippers in Greece speak?

English

The majority of our skippers are multi-lingual with English being the onboard language. Please let us know at enquiry stage if a language other than English will make your experience more enjoyable.

Are your Skippers qualified and experienced?

Yes

Our Skippers are fully qualified professionals that have sailed in these waters for a number of years. We do not use Skippers still in training or straight out of a Skipper Academy.

Where does the Skipper Sleep?

Onboard

Ideally in a dedicated cabin on the yacht. Many will sleep in the saloon which is the lounge area on the yacht as a favour to help minimise your costs. Please ask for this at Enquiry stage.

Why do I need a Skipper?

Experience and Local Knowledge

Yachts in Greece can only be chartered by licenced individuals. Many licensed people will still hire one of us skippers for our knowledge of the Islands, places to eat and swim/anchor.
