Even though I’m a Greek, I have been always surprised when I heard people saying “take us with you to the Greek islands”, “it’s a dream of a lifetime for us to visit the Greek islands”, “IWe want to walk around the Acropolis” or the ” we love the Greek cuisine”…
I decided. I am extremely lucky and they are. Why? Because I can fulfill their dreams! My job is to assist them organizing such a trip to Greece! I can put together a sailing trip to Greece. Sailing the Greek islands by boat! Yes, you listened well, I am a Yacht Charter Broker and I am totally dedicated to put together luxurious holidays around the beautiful Greek islands! Island Hopping!
Once they find out I am a Yacht Charter Broker, they become excited and they want to gather more information and see if a boat trip in the Greek islands would be economically feasible for themselves! Dear friends, YES!
Sailing aboard a luxurious crewed boat in Greece is feasible for everyone!
I will present to you today one of the most beautiful catamarans in Greece, one of the most luxurious catamarans in Greece! A fully crewed catamaran which is affordable for everyone! All you have to do is gather your group of people, and decide about the sail trip in advance. Maybe a year earlier than the actual sailing trip to the Greek islands. What you need is 8-10 people who are ready to realize with you a dream of a lifetime! To sail in the Greek islands!
Catamaran Elvira is located in Athens and realizes weekly charters in the Greek islands. You can charter her for a week or for several weeks. Usually the charter starts and ends in Athens but we could also organize charters out from other locations of Greece such from Mykonos or Santorini or from any other island you desire at a small extra charge. The embarkation day is usually on a Saturday and ends on a Saturday, as well.
The catamran Elvira is a LAGOON 500, has loa 15.6 meters and accommodates up to 10 passengers in 5 luxurious cabins. Crew sleeps in separate crew quarters. Four of these cabins have queen beds and the fifth cabin has an upper/lower bed. All cabins have their own bathroom, large storage space, TVs and music system and A/C. It’s a very comfortable boat. I personally have made many weekly charters on ELVIRA with 10 passengers, all extremely successful! Elvira is the only catamaran of this size in Greece that has 3 crew members in order to offer high-quality services (captain, cook, sailor).
Once you enter the salon you receive a pleasant feeling. It is the warmth that emits to the space through the pastel colors on the furniture… and through the light that enters the windows… There is lots of natural light in the salon… that makes area so natural and warm. In this area, you will see a large plasma tv-home cinema, plenty of games, playstation 3, a karaoke system, etc. The dining table is large beautifully decorated and around it you can seat on the beautiful sofas. Right here, the cook organizes any special dinners or a buffet full of amazing Greek delights… offered accompanied with a glass of champagne or a glass of wine and soft music…
Usually, the visitors want to eat in the aft table, al fresco with nice views of the blue sea or the magnificent view of a greek picturesque fishing port… or of a golden beach … The table at the aft deck seats up to 10 people and is very comfortable. In fact, the Owner of the board has changed the Origiinal table with a larger one so the guests are extremely comfortable! The Owner of this boat knows hospitality and he wants passengers to be extremely happy and pleased with everything.
In the galley of the boat, miracles happen! The cook has 3 refrigerators, a deep freezer, microwave, gas oven, an ice maker, an espresso machine, burners , filtered water machine and much more, etc. The galley is fully equipped and the chef creates dishes with pure Greek ingredients. Nothing is frozen, or pre cooked. Even cheese pies, sweets, cakes, everything is made from scratch. Visitors are thrilled with the cook’s creations and the taste of the food is unforgettable! Many times, the captain catches fish and passengers are fortunate to eat fresh fish, cooked according to delicious Greek recipes!
The outer space of the boat in general is very comfortable. On the bow there is space to enjoy a drink and to relax watching the sea and the dolphins in some areas jumping out the water … A wonderful spot to gaze at the sea and to let the blue of the Greek waters … bring you a total tranquility and serenity!
Elvira has many water toys such: snorkeling gear, fishing gear, ski equipment for adults and kids, 2 canoes, a banana, a tender with 40 hp, tubes, outdoor shower, night underwater lights for night swimming, a swimming platform and much more!
The boat also has internet access, a printer/scanner aboard.
What can you do and see in a week? You can choose to visit the Cyclades or the Saronic Islands, or alternatively, visit a few Saronic islands combined with the eastern coast of the Peloponnese.
All itineraries are subject to weather conditions and guests have to be flexible with this matter and totally trust their Captain. He knows the weather conditions and the safe route you have to take in case of rough winds so you can be comfortable and so you can enjoy your holidays!
