Get ready for an amazing sailing vacation in Greece!

 Launched in 1995 with over 10,000 happy clients

IonionSails – MCPY Yacht Chartering, is a family business founded by a father & son team, Mr. Vangelis Efstathiou and Gabriel Efstathiou. We are professional yacht owners and we have successfully 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 was an owner of tutoring institutions in Athens since 1975, but his heart had always belonged to the sea!

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 in many Multinational companies in Greece, but on the side, since he was old enough to walk, he used to work with his father, as a lover of 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 now his son always inspect all the yachts of the fleet personally, even when the yachts are undergoing their yearly regular service or refit out of the water! No details is too small to ensure all our boats are in absolutely perfect conditions for our guests!
