What is your vision of the perfect escape?

Stunning coastlines. Dazzling blue seas. Ancient sites. Stylish accommodation. A room with a view. Expertly-prepared homemade dishes using seasonal ingredients, often highlighted by a catch-of-the-day. A friendly and expert crew ready to attend to your every need.

Imagine sailing with freedom in some of the world's most gorgeous waters. Enjoying the freshest of meals prepared by your personal chef as you and your family or friends gather in the lounge to share memories of your day. Savoring an aperitif on deck, while the fabulous Mediterranean sunset unfolds before you.

The recreational activities available to you on a yacht voyage ensure that you and your traveling companions are never bored: swimming, snorkeling, and even canoeing. There are even onshore explorations and visits to special coves with your guide: like to the Greek ghost town of Kayakoy, the dramatic classical ruins at Knidos, Cleopatra's famed baths at Gocek Lagoon, the uncanny emerald waters of Grotta dello Smeraldo near Amalfi, or the rugged sheer Calanques de Cassis.  They’re all off the beaten path...and all yours to be had.

Some of our most popular Greek sailing itineraries include whitewashed Cycladic islands such as Mykonos, Santorini and Naxos. Or routes through the Ionian islands with Corfu, Odysseus's homeland of Ithaca, and Zakynthos with its very photogenic shipwreck beach. Then there's the Dodecanese group, including Rhodes, Symi, and Kos - very close to and easy to combine with a sail along Turkey's beautiful coastline. These are some of the most-visited spots, but is really only the beginning when it comes to yachting Greece. You can return year after year and never run out of new experiences. Or how about a trip to the Adriatic?

The Adriatic coast is another of our favorite yachting destinations, known for its pristine beaches, large bays, medieval walled towns and remnants of historic civilizations. This area is also just next-door to Italy and offers amazing landscapes and a profusion of cultural delights in the coastal and interior regions of Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro. Split, Dubrovnik and Kotor are a few of the Adriatic's "pearls", but there is so much to be discovered among its vast array of islands. Hvar, Korcula, Brac, Vis, Mljet, Kornati, Pag, Losinj, the Elaphiti Islands, the Pakleni Islands, Dugi Otok, Krapanj, Lastovo, and more - the islands are calling.




Yachting for Families

There's no better way to travel with your family this summer than with your own privately-chartered yacht and dedicated crew. See the mythical Mediterranean, as well as its Aegean and Adriatic neighbors, the fantastic Rivieras and Coasts of Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Italy, France and more.

What makes yachting such a perfect fit for families with children? First of all, kids love the fun, adventure, freedom and novelty of yachting the seas. And you will love the smiles on their faces as they experience the world from a different perspective. Chartering a private yacht provides freedom from some of the hassles that get in the way of your vacation: no unpacking and packing at every new place, no traffic on the roads in the high season, no trains or ferries to get from place to place or island to island. Traveling via yacht gives you a sort of home away from, where you can enjoy a freshly-prepared breakfast every morning and even relax with your family over an intimate dinner in the evenings, with views to be envied. Yachting tends to take the stress out of the basic travel necessity of getting from place to place, so you can focus on what matters most: making family memories.

Both young and old can have a fun and educational experience aboard the yacht, as you are sure to learn something of nautical ways from your Captain and Crew, and a sailing/motoring adventure is often also paired with custom land experiences to combine relaxation and freedom at sea with history and culture on land.




Which crewed yacht is right for you?

Whatever your cruising style, we can help you find your match among our fleet of power yachts, handcrafted gulets, classic wooden sailing yachts, and modern mono-hull and catamaran sailing vessels.  All of our charters come with an experienced crew, so the only thing you need to do is choose the option that best suits your perfect holiday at sea.


Motoryacht

These powerful yachts rely on fuel instead of mother-nature’s winds (although some hybrids are also equipped with a sail). This is a widely popular category of yacht charter offering a variety of options, sleek style and performance, and the flexibility to cover multiple destinations easily and conveniently as you choose the cruising speed that suits your mood. Whether your priorities are speed, style, size, or stability (for those prone to seasickness), we can find the right power yacht to match your needs.



M/S Gulet Yacht

Gulets have a special history – beautifully handcrafted wooden vessels from Turkey, they were originally used for transport by fishermen and sponge divers. Typically found near their home of origin in the eastern Mediterranean, modern hybrid versions have added a motor to the traditional double-masted hull. These graceful yachts are perfectly designed to function as traveling accommodation (not for adventure or sport) with spacious cabins and decks for lounging; they are ideal for leisurely cruises through turquoise waters.




Sailboat (Catamaran or Monohull)

Modern and classic sailing vessels harness the power of the wind. Today's sailing yachts offer everything from vintage construction to ultra-modern and sophisticated charters equipped with luxury amenities. Many also include a low-power engine for maneuvering in placid waters or difficult moorings. If you are looking for the quintessential adventure sailing experience, this category of boat will give you the genuine feeling of living an invigorating and romantic life at sea.




Dining on Board

There's nothing like dining aboard your home at sea - your private yacht charter - with incredible views, good company, and the freshest local ingredients. Most luxury yacht charters will include a personal chef on board, as cooking at sea presents some challenges for the uninitiated. Your personal gourmet chef can surprise you again and again with fresh-caught fish and seafood, regional flavors and specialties, all tailored to your tastes. For your private charter, you may choose a "full-board" meal plan, or you might also want to take some or all meals outside. It's really up to you - but the meal plan should be chosen prior to your arrival. If you choose to use our provisioning service, the yacht will be stocked with the food and drink preferences you have provided to us.





Crew & Guide

The professional crew of your private charter will ensure maximum comfort during your voyage. Each of our yachts is under the control of a professional crew including a highly experienced Captain, a cook, and one or more shipmates, depending on the size of the yacht. Crew members always provide friendly first-class service, and their accommodations and private facilities are separate from their guests.

For some yacht itineraries, you could choose to have an on-board guide should it be helpful in communicating with the crew, or if you'd like the added advantage of an experienced insider's knowledge regarding historic, spectacular coastlines.
