Boat hire in Greece: The Sailing paradise. A country that has always been the perfect destination, dreamed by the majority of those who like to spend a good sailing holiday, Greece is a unique mix of long continental coasts among which "bloom" an infinity of bays and dream coves and hundreds of beautiful islands, belonging to the famous archipelagos of the Sporades, the Cyclades and the Dodecanese. All vacation destinations where you can find different types of rentals: big and small boats, catamarans and monohulls are the ideal means of transportation to explore a rich land, not only in terms of sea and sun, but also in terms of natural, historical, artistic and architectural beauties.
So Greece is the destination suitable for beautiful sailing holidays, but not made of just entertainment and navigation: let’s not forget that here on the Aegean Sea, over the past thirty centuries, have succeeded some of the civilizations that have made Europe’s whole history and also a bit that of Italy’s: Minoans and Achaeans, Athenians and Spartans, Macedonians and Persians and Byzantines. And they all left indelible marks on the beaches of the Greek islands and the Hellenic coast, marks which you can go discover by renting a yacht in Greece. The Aegean Sea has been for centuries the cradle of civilization as we know it today. Politics and philosophy, art and techniques of war, modern law and religion all have a more or less important heritage that can be traced back to the past and which today can be easily re-discovered during magical sailing Holidays in Greece.
Because unveiling right from the sea the magnificence of nature and art that stud the Greek land means to even more identify oneself with the ancient history of this people of adventurers, heroes and navigators. Without forgetting that, the boat hire in Greece is very simple and that there are many safe harbors and bays where to berth and spend the night. Our boat rental in Greece starts from the Ionian Sea and the Ionian Islands, archipelago just off the coast of Apulia and which includes famous islands like Corfù, Ithaca and Zakyntho.
While you are here you can obviously already find out how you can obtain the perfect yacht hire, and even perhaps sale south or east towards the coast of mainland Greece. Here on the contrary the views are very heterogeneous: if you stay on the north side of the jagged coast of the Peloponnese, you can venture yourself, for example, in the deep gulf that goes all the way to the far Corinth, ancient city from Classical Greece, today "owner" of an artificial canal that leads the boats directly into the Aegean Sea. Along the way you discover a “double" coast, rich in diversity: while the north coast is a long sequence of jagged and beautiful bays and coves, dominated in the background by the Mount Parnassus bulk, 2457 meters tall, the south coast is low and very flat, because of the many rivers that flow into it, coming from the Peloponnese mountains.
Even here, in this latter region, the place that for the ancient Greeks was not a simple peninsula but instead was above all a big island, so much that its original name Peloponnisos means precisely Pelops island, mythological son of Tantalus, it's possible to organize any type of yacht charter.
Once you arrive in the Aegean Sea, between the Saronic Gulf, Attica and the eastern coast of Argolida you can take a cruise that is a unique mix of history, legend, myth and sea. Starting with a sailing boat hire in Greece you find yourself on the route that finally leads you to discover the Greek capital, Athens, and its inimitable artistic and archaeological treasures.
Towards the south you will then reach Crete, a very barren and rocky island which is the largest one overlooking the Aegean Sea. Narrow and elongated for over 250 kilometers from west to east, the island is surrounded by numerous small islands, and inside it houses high mountains. Getting to sail in the central part of the Aegean Sea, instead, means finding the right boat rental that gives you a chance to discover numerous islands, such as those belonging to the archipelago of the Sporades and the Cycladic.
And even more towards the southeast there's the Dodecanese, or the "twelve islands", as even the name of the archipelago says. Located in the most southeastern part of the Greek Aegean, just off the coast of Turkey, it actually includes more than a dozen lands: in fact it is made up of Patmos, Arki, Agathonisi, Farmakonisi, Lipso, Leros, Kalymnos, Kos, Nisiros , Tilos, Simi, Khalki, Alimia, Rhodes, Karpathos, Kasos, Ay Ioannis and Astipalaia. Those who are, however, fans of the legendary movie "Mediterranean" by Gabriele Salvatores, winner of the Oscar, know however that Greece doesn’t end here: sailing along Turkey’s undulated coastline, just before Antalya, you can find the last Greek island. It is the Kastellorizo one, where the whole mythical film was set and shoot. Yacht charter in Greece, a destination of absolute quality that you cannot miss.
