Skippered & Crewed Chartering

Choose your yacht, your skipper and your crew!

Relax & Enjoy your sailing!


Even if you are an experienced sailor, you would rather let someone else worry about a safe anchorage, or a dragging anchor in the middle of the night.

Also while you are sailing in the Ionian Sea, the Cyclades, the Saronic and Argolic Gulf, the Sporades or in the Dodecanese Islands someone with local knowledge and can be your tour guide on land and through the magical paths of the Greek waters.

If you want to have a carefree sailing experience in Greece, we can offer you a skippered yacht chartering!

With IonionSails you can sail feeling relaxed while one of our skippers takes care everything else!

Also you can ask us for a hostess or a cook that will take care of you and your beloved while you sail. A Skippered and/ or crewed sailing vacation is great for singles, families and groups of friends.
