About chartering in Greece

  • What qualifications I need to charter a yacht?

    For chartering a sailing or motor yacht you need to be in possession of a valid sailing or motor yacht license issued from a proper Authority or verified school.

  • What documentation I need to bring along?

    Once you book your charter you need to send to the owner the following information so he can prepare the charter documents:

    1. ·        Copy of your passport
    2. ·        Your full address
    3. ·        Copy of your sailing license if you are the skipper and if not the skipper’s passport and license
    4. ·        The crew list
    5. ·        Your arrival details so he knows what time to expect you.

  • Additional costs or hidden extras:

    All charter boats come with a standard and compulsory inventory list. When the owner sends you the offer he will mention what extras will be included.

    List of Extras:

    1. ·        Outboard motor
    2. ·        Linen & towels
    3. ·        End cleaning
    4. ·        Kayak

  • How to book:

    Once you choose the type of boat and preferred location, you contact via the form the owner and he will reply to you with his offer. If accepted by you he will send you his confirmation and his bank details for the first deposit which is usually 50% of the full charter amount. The payment should be done by a Bank transfer or by Credit card if the owner will accept. Not Cash. After that the booking is confirmed and binding.
