How to book a yacht charter or sailing holiday with Greek Sails

We have not yet introduced our online bareboat yacht charter and flotilla sailing holiday booking system, therefore please use our online enquiry form to request a sailing holiday booking. We will then confirm your flotilla sailing holiday or charter details to you via Email.

Special requirements & requests

Because we are a small family-run business we can often accommodate special requirements. We are not constrained to only booking what it says in the brochure! For instance we are one of the few yacht charter companies that will offer charters for dates other than Saturday to Saturday.

If you have any special requirements please let us know; you may be surprised and we hope to be able to accommodate your request. Simply note your requirement in any enquiry you send us and we’ll be happy to try and accommodate your needs.

Bareboat yacht charter & sailing holiday payments

When your yacht charter is confirmed a 30% deposit becomes due. The remaining charter price is due one month before the commencement of your charter, e.g.:

On confirmation of booking 30%
One month before commencement of your charter or sailing holiday 70%

Payments can be made by any of:

Yacht security deposit

We require a deposit to be held as security against the safe return of your charter yacht. Security deposits are paid on arrival and may be paid either in Euro cash or by debit or credit card.

The deposit is fully returnable dependant upon the safe return of the yacht in good and clean order at the end of your charter.

Start & end times of your yacht charter

Your yacht will be available for you from 17:00 (5pm) on the first day of your charter until 09:00 (9am) on the final day.

It may be possible for you to have access to your yacht before 17:00 by prior arrangement, but please be aware we will be cleaning your yacht and carrying out any necessary maintenance during the day and so early access, even if agreed, may not always be possible as it is dependant upon the return to the yacht from its previous charter.

We require access to the yacht from 09:00 on the last day of your charter so that we may complete final cleaning and maintenance tasks.

It may be possible for you to sail from Poros on the evening of the first day of your charter, however, please advise us if you wish to do this as we will need to obtain clearance for you to sail from the port Police. It is unlikely you will be able to depart before 18:00 at the earliest. This will then not leave you a lot of time to sail to the next port, although if you wish to overnight away from the port of Poros, there are several quiet and secure bays nearby.

Final yacht cleaning

Please note that although we undertake final cleaning, we require you to return your yacht to us clean and tidy. If a yacht is returned in a poor condition we may levy an additional cleaning charge.

Travel to & from Greek Sails

We are a family-run yacht charter and sailing holiday company and so are not permitted to arrange your air travel to Athens unlike a tour operator. However, we are happy to arrange transfers for you from Athens International airport to Poros including both taxi or minibus collection from the airport and ferry tickets as required.

This means you are free to travel by any airline via any airport to best suit you; you are not tied to a tour operator’s pre-booked flights. If you book early, flights from the UK to Athens may typically be about €100 per person each way even with the major airlines.

We provide full details on how to travel to our yacht base in Poros on our “Travelling to Greek Sails” page.
