Greece is perfectly situated at the intersection of Europe, Asia and Africa. Located on the southern tip of the Balkan peninsula, it has common borders with Albania on the northwest, Republic of Macedonia and Bulgaria directly to the north, and Turkey on the furthest eastern point. The geographical diversity of where Greece stands is not just by land, but also by sea.
You can charter a yacht in Greece and explore all of the surroundings and the copious amounts of islands. Whether you want to cruise to Corfu or Mykonos, hire a motor yacht, sailboat or catamaran with or without crew. When renting a sailboat or motorboat, you’ll have the choice to see Greece by water on the Aegean Sea on the eastern part, the Ionian Sea on the western shore, and the Sea of Crete and Mediterranean directly to the south.
In Greece, the long stretches of coast give you several dimensions of sailing allowing you to have more options when it comes to where you'd like to rent. Greece has always been well known as having several popular ports spread widely around the country. Because of the difference in sailing areas, the price can vary depending on your project. In general, the highest prices for rentals start at the end of May and go into the end of August. During this high period, the pricing may be higher due to the demand and favorable weather conditions.
For lower price points, boat rentals drop dramatically at the end of September. In Greece, you will find boats for rent daily from 200 € to 400 € depending on the type of motorboat or sailboat.
For sailors gloabally, Greece has always been one of the top destinations for yacht charters and boat rentals. If you're looking for a weekly charter in one of the more popular ports like Athens, Lefkas, Corfu, if you'd like to depart from one of the Cyclades, you will have to book the boat well in advance. On average, more than 50% of the charters for Greece are already booked by March and more than 75% by the beginning of May. At SamBoat, we advise that you define your project and book a boat as early as possible. In some instances, you can book closer to the date of departure depending on the port, but the inventory decreases.
For day boats, the functioning is a bit different. Usually for motorboats rented for one day, the recommended time period to book is 2 to 3 months to ensure availability.
With turquoise, crystal clear water and the Mediterranean sun, nautical tourism is highly present all over Greece. Among the most prominent spots for nautical sports are Athens, Lefkada, Corfu, Naxos, Kos, Skiathos and Rhodes just to name a few. During the summer, rent a sailboat or motorboat and find hidden beaches to escape from the main tourist destinations. The islands in Greece are filled with rich history and beauty and would provide an ideal escape. Sail to any of the islands and experience the unspoiled beauty that awaits.
A longstanding tradition of the country is its dedication to the culinary arts. Be sure to taste a wide variety of the Mediterranean cuisine including moussaka, pastitsio, a traditional greek salad with feta, or the most popular street food, souvlaki. The best way to sample the local cuisine is by going out for a mezethes, which are a local tradition of combining a social outing with a taste of the local culture. You’ll pair the food perfectly with a retsina, an ouzo or a metaxa. There is no better way to end the outing than dropping anchor and watching a stunning Greek sunset.
Taking a vacation and sailing in Greece is a must do for every sailor. With soft morning winds and stronger afternoon breezes, an idyllic climate, and short distances between hundreds of islands, the region is begging to be explored. Find ideal places to swim and snorkel and enjoy delicious, traditional Greek meals in the waterfront tavernas that you’ll find in every picturesque fishing village.
It is obvious why Greece is one of the most desirable vacation destinations. Rent a boat in Greece and discover unspoiled beaches on one of the several islands, or spend time absorbing the local culture on the mainland. With its diversity, there is something to be found by everyone.
It goes without saying that Greece is a sailing hub in the Mediterranean. With hundred years of sailing history, Greece and the Ionian sea is a popular destination for everyone looking for an adrenaline rush or just a stress-free day out on the water with their family. Charters in Greece are numerous and during the summer months, between July and August, the surrounding can be a little bit crowded.
However, the coastline is full of unspoiled harbours and bays, which will give you a better sense of solitude and adventure. Of course, one the best way to enjoy this is through Samboat's access to the large fleet in Greece. Whether you are looking to rent a Lagoon catamaran, a Sun Ddyssey (which are perfect for week-long cruises) or just a smaller motorboat, you'll find the boat you need on our website.
Sailing in Greece is an amazing opportunity to discover the Greek islands. Leave the mainland and set sail to the Cyclades islands or the Dodecanese islands. You won't be disappointed. Once again, depending on your criteria, with Samboat you can find a skippered yacht or a bareboat. For example, if you want to have complete freedom on your sailing yachts, then a bareboat is the way to go. On the opposite, if you are more looking for a stress-free boating experience, planning absolutely nothing and just enjoy the sun on the dock of you hired boat, then renting a boat with a greek skipper will be the best solution. One of the main benefits of hiring a boat with a local skipper is that they know the sailing area the best.
