Skippered Yacht Charters from Lefkas
No stress and no hassle sailing so you can truly enjoy your sailing holiday in Greece!
Choose your yacht and we will provide your skipper!
Our experienced skippers know all the best spots to visit in the Ionian Islands and will happily recommend itineraries. If you have specific islands you want to visit, then a tailor made itinerary just for you will be planned. Our skippers are all experienced captains and friendly people and we are proud of the amazing reviews and emails we receive every year thanking them for a great sailing vacation!
Even if you are an experienced sailor, maybe you would rather let someone else worry about a safe anchorage or a dragging anchor in the middle of the night!
Our skippers have unparalleled local knowledge and can be your tour guide both on land and through the magical paths of the Greek seas.
If you want to have a carefree sailing experience in Greece, we can wholeheartedly recommend our skippered yacht charters!
With Ionion Sails you can sail feeling relaxed while one of our competent skippers takes care of everything else!
If desired, you can also ask us for a hostess or a cook that will take care of you and your loved ones while you sail. A skippered and/or crewed sailing vacation is great for families and groups of friends, contact us for more details!
If you are interested in sailing in Greece and you wish to acquire additional information, one of the Ionion Sails agents will be happy to fill you in!
After you choose your preferences (yacht type, length, accommodation options, location & dates) we will, in turn, send you our very best offers!
This will include details about boat availability, the deposit and total cost, the technical characteristics and inventory of each yacht and a complete set of photos of each boat that we are suggesting for you!
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 whatsoever!
The final booking of the yacht takes place when you send us the pre-agreed advance deposit.
After you have sent us the receipt of the bank transfer and the personal and crew details that we require, you will receive an official contract – charter party within 5 days which is already approved by the Hellenic Ministry of Merchant Marine.
All our skippers have been cooperating with us for many years, are mainly between 35 and 45 years old and are fluent in a variety of languages.
They have been sailing in Greece since childhood and they know the Ionian Sea like the back of their hands!
Each skipper has met the strict Ionion Sails standards for sailing abilities and personal values.
Our skippers are trained in all types of boats and are excellent instructors. They give you a feeling of security onboard, they are outgoing, responsible, and always cooperative while showing you the best parts of Greece!
For any extra costs that may occur, or may be required by you in exchange for extra or optional yacht chartering services you will be informed in our offer, and they will also be stated in the contact – charter party.
No other extra charges will arise during your charter.
Skippers and other crew members (hostess, cook) will be paid upon embarkation, during the check in process.
Ionion Sails usually follows the national rate for skipper costs that is set at 150 EUR/ per day.
From our first email offer you will be informed about the security deposit required before your embarkation and during the check in of your yacht.
The amount varies according to the size and the type of the yacht. The deposit ensures that you are responsible only for that amount of money for any loss or damage that may be caused during your charter.
Every yacht is insured against any damage that exceeds the deposit amount.
If all the terms of the Charter Party are met, your security deposit will be refunded back to you immediately after the end of your charter.
We accept VISA, MASTERCARD & DINERS. Personal checks cannot be accepted.
We also offer you the possibility to insure your deposit, with a non-refundable security deposit amount through our Insurance Partner.
Please do not hesitate to request more information about other types of guarantees.
