We are yacht owners, loving the sea & boats


IonionSails – MCPY Yacht Chartering, is a family business runned by a Father & Son, Mr. Vangelis Efstathiou and Gabriel Efstathiou. We are Professional Yacht Owners and we have succesfuly served over 10.000 happy clients since our launch, back in 1995.

The Founder


This was achieved because of Vangelis Efstathiou’s continuous effort to provide to our clients not only flawless boats, but also a feeling of security.
As a professional Mathematician, he is an owner of tutoring institutions in Athens since 1975, but his heart always belonged to the sea.

We take care each detail in our yachts, personally!


From 1995, when Vangelis first started to charter his own boats, to this day, he and his son are still inspecting all the yachts of the fleet personally, even when the yachts are undergoing their yearly regular service or refit out of the water.

The next generation

Nowadays IonionSails, welcomes the second generation of the family.
Gabriel Efstathiou, has worked for more than 11 years as a senior employee to many Multinational companies in Greece, but on the side, since he was old enough, he used to work with his father, as a lover of the sea!
