If you think that you are interested in sailing and you wish to acquire additional information, one of the IonionSails agents will be happy to fill you in.

After you choose your preferences, (yacht type, length, accommodation, location & dates) we, in turn, will send you our best offers!

This will include details about the availability, the partial and the total cost, the technical charasterics and also the inventory and the photos of each yacht that will be available to you!

Moreover, we will include the way of payment for your sailing vacations in Greece from Lefkas, Corfu or Athens.

Book a yacht:


If our offer suits your needs we can hold an option on the sailing boat you prefer for five days until you make a decision, without any constraints for you whatsoever.

The final booking of the yacht takes place when you send us the pre-agreed advance deposit.

After you’ve send us the receipt of the bank transfer and the personal and crew details that we require of you, you will receive an official contract- charter party within 5 days, approved by the Hellenic Ministry of Merchant Marine.

Chartering Cost:

For any extra costs that may occur, or may be required by you in exchange for extra yacht chartering services you will be informed in our offer, and they will also be stated in the contact – charter party.
No extra charges will arise during your charter.

Sailing Qualifications:


Bareboat Sail-yacht chartering in Greece requires two experienced crew members. The first one (skipper) should have an appropriate sailing certificate, or demonstrate an official offshore sailing license. The second one (co-skipper) should have sailing experience. Official declarations stating the skipper’s competence and the co-skipper’s experience may be also required if the harbor authority considers this necessary.
If you don’t have enough sailing qualifications you can ask us to provide you with one of Ionionsails experienced skippers.

Security Deposit:


From our first email offer you will be informed about the security deposit you have to leave, before the embarkation and during the check in of your yacht.
The amount varies according to the size and the type of the yacht.
This ensures that you are responsible only for that amount of money for any loss or damage may be caused.

Every yacht is insured against any damage that exceeds that amount.
If all the terms of the Charter Party are met, the Security Deposit will be refunded back to you right after the end of your charter.

We accept VISA, MASTERCARD & DINERS. Personal checks are not acceptable.

We also offer you also the possibility to insure your deposit, with a non-refundable security deposit amount through our Insurance Partner – Uniqa Group.
Please do not hesitate to request more information about the other types of guarantee.

Refund Policy:

If your booking is cancelled at least 90 days prior to embarkation, we will refund you 70% of the total charter fee.
If your booking is cancelled between 90 & 60 days prior to embarkation we will refund you 50% of the total charter fee.
