The history of Greek Sails

Greek Sails have been providing flotilla sailing holidays & yacht charters to customers since 1983.

The business is still family-owned & run, now by the sons, Richard & Andreas Kouvaras, both of whom are both avid & regular sailors.

After starting Greek Sails, Sottos Kouvaras and his wife, Sue, moved to Poros in 1983 with their sons, Richard and Andreas, and made it their home. They have run their sailing operation continuously on the quayside at Punta at the quiet end of Sfairia island.

Richard and Andreas have been involved with boats all their lives, sailing, racing, servicing and doing their national service in the Greek navy. Let’s hope their own children share their passion!

Without exaggeration, every one of us involved with Greek Sails, the Kouvaras family and their team, is a keen sailor. It is this knowledge and love of the sport that gives us a unique ability to provide the best possible holiday for you, the client and guest. We always seek a personal relationship with the charterer so that we may be aware of his individual tastes and preferences.

In the same vein, being based in Poros, the sailing "hub" of the whole area, we are essentially locals, and thus have a personal relationship with many of the people you may encounter in the various destination harbours and bays. Thus altogether, we are in a special position to help you have a trouble-free, enjoyable and rewarding cruise.

Now the business is run by the sons, Richard & Andreas, with Sue still providing administration and support for the business. The fleet now consists of about 30 yachts; we refresh the fleet regularly and so exact numbers flucuate slightly, and we welcome around 2,000 people on sailing holidays each year.
