Why should you book a yacht in Greece with us?

Our yachting company/agent in Greece was founded in 1955 by Basil Koutsoukellis who was among the first to organize yacht charters in Greece. Today the oldest Greek charter brokerage firm operates as an independent booking agent for all Greek bareboat and crewed yachts and it is run by Irene Koutsoukellis - Antonopoulos, the founder's daughter.

Our agent is member of the Greek Yacht Brokers & Consultants Association Licensed by the Greek National Tourist Organisation (G.N.T.O)

We give unbiased advice regarding any boat for charter in the Aegean. We have worked in the tourism industry in Greece for 15 years and know the country. Our agent inspects all boats that we work with i.e. you can be sure that our description is up to date.

We follow through every step of the booking process:
We will reserve your hotel, organize land tours from any stop in your itinerary, we will organize the provisioning of the yacht, help you draw up your own personal itinerary and send you information on the areas and islands that are of interest to you. A yacht charter vacation gives you the opportunity to explore islands, uncrowded coves and beaches in a way that land vacations never can!

Yachting in Greece

The Greek islands of the Aegean are among the most beautiful and interesting cruise areas in the world. Bounded by the Greek mainland to the west and north, the Turkish coast to the east, and the island of Crete to the south. The islands dot the sky blue Aegean waters in clusters bearing the names Sporades, Cyclades, Saronic, and Dodecanese.

The remnants of early Greek civilization, the timeless quality of customs unchanged for centuries, and nature's display of beauty in sea, sky and land combined, make cruising these waters an unforgettable experience.

While Greece has always attracted travellers, drawn by the fascination of some of Europe's earliest civilizations, many of today's visitors come to enjoy Greece's beaches and sunshine. Greece has more coastline than any other country in Europe!

You can choose between rocky outcrops, pebbled coves or long swathes of golden sand. Greece has saved its traditions more tenaciously than most European countries. Many traditions such as festivals, allow Greeks to express their love for life through dancing, singing and feasting! Don't think that Greece is trapped in a time warp. In towns and cities you will find discos as lively and cosmopolitan as any in Italy, France or Britain. Explore and you will discover that in addition to its outstanding beauty, Greece is one of Europe's most relaxed and friendly countries.

Situated at the north east of the Mediterranean is the glorious Greek archipelago. It is impressively made up over 3000 islands, of which only 140 are inhabited. Each island has its own unique style, charm and history. The stark white cubic architecture of the Cyclades is dramatically different from the Venetian architecture found in the Ionian or the Gothic seen in the Dodecanese. You will have the opportunity to sample different local specialties and wines.

There is an island for everyone; whether you are seeking quiet laid back shores or lively beaches and party filled nights. Crystalline waters, steep cliffs, hidden coves and lush forests are just part of what draws people to the Greek Islands.
