Hire a Sailboat in Greece

With idyllic islands surrounding this hub of culture and history, it is the perfect place to hire a sailboat. With a sailboat, you can go island hopping to your heart’s content, stopping off at white sand beaches, bordered by crystal clear waters that glitter and gleam in the sunlight. Being at the centre of one of the most famous ancient civilisations, there are also plenty of spectacular buildings to visit, which provide a valuable window into a past full of intrigue and amazing stories. When you hire a sailboat in Greece, you can be in charge of your own adventure from start to finish, whether you want to hire with a skipper or without.

How much does it cost to hire a sailboat in Greece?

There are many different factors that can influence the cost of hiring a sailboat in Greece. Some of these factors include the model of the sailboat, the season, the location where you want to hire, the number of people and how long you plan on hiring for. Typically though, you should be looking to spend at least £770 per week for a sailboat Hire in Greece.

Do you need a skipper to hire a sailboat in Greece?

No, it’s possible to hire a sailboat either with or without a skipper in Greece, but it’s imperative to look into boating licence laws if you plan to hire without, In general, the laws in Greece aren’t too strict, but if you plan to hire a boat without either a licence or a skipper, you need to hire a boat with an engine power of 30 horsepower or less.

There are many reasons both for hiring a sailboat with a skipper and bareboat charters but a couple of things you should consider when making the decision are your sailing experience and whether you want a relaxing holiday or one filled with adventure. For people who want a relaxing holiday or who have little experience, it makes more sense to hire with a skipper. If, however, you would prefer a little more freedom on your holiday, you should hire without a skipper.

What are the weather and sailing conditions like in Greece?

Greece has a warm Mediterranean climate, the summer weather beginning in May with temperatures of around 25°C. By July, these temperatures soar into the 30s and rarely drop below 20°C, even at night. On the lower ground, there are hot, dry summers, which contrasts greatly with the weather in the mountains, where the temperatures are typically lower and there is much more rain. While it’s true that the heat can be a little too much in the summer months, the Greek islands are thankfully cooled down a little by the Meltemi winds. These winds also provide you with perfect conditions for sailing.
