We use big, comfortable, well-maintained yachts. They are dedicated teaching boats with many items you won’t find on a charter yacht, including a small library of sailing books. If you’re coming alone you’ll get your own cabin; we don’t expect students to share a cabin with a stranger or to sleep in the saloon. Find out more about why people love our yachts.
Yachts in the Aegean tend to be bigger than those you would find in northern Europe. Larger boats are more comfortable in the short Mediterranean seas and in a warm climate. Our teaching yachts reflect the type of boat most people want to charter in this area. They are 40 – 45 foot, easy to handle, with a bimini to protect you from the summer sun, and a swim platform for enjoying the blue sea.
All our yachts are inspected annually by the RYA. As well as meeting their exacting standards they also conform to the requirements of the Hellenic Registry for professional yachts. They carry all the latest safety and navigation equipment for use both during day and at night. You will find GPS plotter, EPIRB, GMDSS radio with separate battery, fire extinguishers, life jackets, life raft, and many other safety items on board all of our yachts.
We don’t just meet the required standards – we exceed them. You’ll find several things on our boats that you wouldn’t get on many others – touch-screen GPS plotter, weather station, Navtex … and of course we carry several books on different aspects of sailing for you to refer to.
If you require a skipped charter we can provide you with a fully qualified RYA-certified skipper for your holidays!

*Below you can find indicative pictures of some of our yachts.
The cockpit is very spacious with long benches and the coachroof slopes down forward of the mast and is wide enough to provide sunbathing room.
Down below Philip has a bright, comfortable, saloon making full use of her generous beam, and a good sized galley and chart table. There are four cabins with one containing bunk beds, making the yacht ideal for families with several children or for two friends to share a cabin on a group course.
Helena, a 2013 Bavaria 45 Cruiser , joined our fleet in 2016. She has 4 cabins and 3 heads.
Helena will be used principally for private courses but you may be lucky enough to sail on her on a group course.
The Cruiser 45 is comparable to most other mass-production cruising boats as far as its cockpit, deck and interior layouts are concerned. Its sailing performance, however, at least in moderate to strong wind, is exceptional. The boat represents a great value for cruisers looking for both charter-boat comfort and performance-boat speed.

Bazinga is the newest yacht in our fleet. She is a 2014 Bavaria 41 with three cabins, including an en-suite forward cabin. Bazinga can be your yacht for a private course and is ideal for a couple or small family who want to sail on a nice new boat.
