Chartering a Sailing Yacht in Greece
Just looking at a map of Greece and one immediately gets the feeling so many islands crowded together to form one of the oldest nations on Earth are the perfect place for a sailing holiday, as many of the islands can only be reached by boat.
In fact, yacht charter Greece is one of the countries with the longest shoreline in Europe, being second only to Norway, which affords it a seemingly infinite number of yacht charter itineraries that will surely leave coming back for more. In fact, some skippers come on sailing yachts in Greece for years on end.
Among the most attractive regions for yachts in Greece there are the main archipelagoes of islands such as the Dodecanese, the Sporades and the Cyclades. Of course, there are also some yacht charter destinations on the mainland too, in ancient ports such as Athens and Piraeus. The most sought after and quintessentially Greek islands are considered to be Corfu, Crete, Ithaca, Rhodes, Santorini and Skiathos.
To cater to large numbers of tourist coming for yacht charter holidays in Greece, the locals have set up an extensive infrastructure made up of marinas positioned in key locations which afford you decent sailing ranges in between stops. The marinas vary in size and facilities so that the skipper can find here whatever he wants and he can afford, ranging from the cheapest and basic to the most complete and luxurious.
All you need for a Greece boat rental holiday is some form of qualification which is internationally recognized, testifying that you can sail a yacht (generally, a skipper license for coastal sailing issued in your own country will suffice), plus another one for at least one more member of the crew, as this is the law in Greece. Then, you need a valid passport but only if you're not from the European Union countries or from the Schengen Agreement countries.
