With a shallow draft, you’ll be able to get as close as possible to uncrowded coves and beaches to find a sandy spot away from the crowds.

On average, the standard price of catamarans in Greece is €487 per day with the average size being 12m long. If you are travelling with friends or family, catamarans are the ideal boat as they will offer enough space and comfort that you will need. Depending on where you rent the catamaran, the price will range from €200 to several thousand euros per day. Keep in mind that if you have no experience or qualifications, you will have to add on the cost of a skipper.
When renting a bareboat catamaran in Greece, you will need to hold a valid license as well as a detailed nautical CV. The nautical CV will detail your previous experience on a catamaran and the waters you have sailed. If you are new to sailing or do not hold a license, you can always rent a skippered catamaran in Greece. Most of the weekly charters have an option to rent with skipper so you can have a stress free vacation.
With the many islands, there are many avenues where you can possibly sail. The first thing to note is that the sailing season is pretty typical running from May to the end of September, sometimes into October if the weather allows it. With that said, this will be the pricier period to rent a boat in Greece with the peak season running from July to August.
One of the most popular departure points is from the port of Athens. From here, you can cruise your catamaran to the Saronic Gulf and island hop from there. Another beautiful port to start your charter is from Corfu which will allow you to sail in the middle of the Ionian Islands. A catamaran charter in Greece will surely top the holiday list.
