No place can quite compare to the Greek island of Mykonos. Located in the Aegean Sea at the heart of the Cyclades archipelago, Mykonos is known for its pristine beaches, sheltered coves, blue-domed churches, white-washed buildings and its eclectic nightlife. The Island of Winds is a blend between Ibiza and Saint Tropez and there’s no better way to discover it than by a sailboat. It’s time to book a sailboat hire in Mykonos with Océans Evasion to see what this island has to offer.
The price of a sailboat charter in Mykonos is based on several criteria, including the model of the vessel, the duration and the season of the trip and any additional services that you may require. Mykonos is famous for its crystal-clear water and the island offers plenty of water sports opportunities, especially snorkelling. Water sports equipment can be available to hire with many boat owners. You can use the internal messaging system on the Océans Evasion website to discover all of the possibilities.
In the low season, the average price of a sailboat in Mykonos is estimated at £3,150/week. In the high season, when temperatures are warmer, you can expect to pay £4,550/week for your sailboat hire.
In Mykonos, you can hire a sailboat with or without a skipper. If you wish to explore the island and the surrounding region at your own pace, it is best to opt for a bareboat charter. This is perfect for those who wish to customise their trip as much as possible and plan their own itinerary. Make sure that you have a valid boat licence.
On the other hand, if you’re seeking a more authentic Mykonos sailing experience and wish to be guided by a local, you can also opt for a skippered charter. The skipper will be here to take care of all sailing logistics so that you can enjoy your trip as much as possible. They will also be able to show you the best spots around the island, many of which are only known by the locals.
Most sailboats in Mykonos are able to carry up to 15 people onboard. If you are travelling with your family, your friends or with a group of people, we can guarantee that your Mykonos sailing trip will be an unforgettable experience.
It is also possible to have a crew onboard your sailboat. The crew will be here to take care of everything, including dining and cleaning and make sure that your holiday runs smoothly. They are employed by the charter companies and the fee will be included in the total price of your charter.
The weather in Mykonos is warm during the summer and mild during the winter, but the island can be prone to strong winds. We recommend setting sail between May and October, as sunshine will be guaranteed and the water temperature will be perfect for swimming. The island is at its peak during July and August when many visitors flock to Mykonos for its famous party scene. If you fancy a more laid-back holiday when the crowds are gone, it is best to travel to the island between May and June, or September and October.
Mykonos is one of the most sought-after charter destinations in the world and when you land on this pristine island, you will understand why. Golden sands, ancient ruins, rugged coves and turquoise water which will remind you of the film Mamma Mia are some of the things which await.
