Eucrante, our 2011 Oceanis 400, has proved extremely popular this year for couples and small families. Eucrante will be available for 2015 as well.
Unlike our larger teaching yachts, Eucrante is available for bareboat charter as well as for tuition. If you’ve taken an RYA course with us you can charter Eucrante for your first sail from our base on Aegina. We can even arrange for half a day or a full day’s instruction at the start of your holiday to refresh your skills.
Another popular option, for those who already have suitable experience and knowledge has been to combine a two-week charter with an RYA Day Skipper Practical course over the first five days.
She is an Oceanis 40, so still big enough to be comfortable for a family or group of friends. She has three cabins and two ‘heads’, and the main bathroom has a separate shower cubicle – no more wet floors! She’s a lovely size for a private course for two people. You can have the main cabin and private bathroom while your instructor has his/ her own space.
If you’re a bigger group of close friends, she’s licenced for 8 people and two can sleep comfortably in the saloon. On RYA courses we can’t take more than 5 people but Eucrante is available for private bareboat charter, so once you have passed your RYA Day Skipper Practical course you can hire her to go off and practice your new skills.
As well as all the standard navigation and safety equipment that is compulsory for a commercial charter and teaching boat, she has a number of additional features to add to your enjoyment.
- digital switch board
- combined Navtex / DSC radio
- 220 volt microwave
- 3D GPS plotter on deck
For 2015 we plan to renew the cockpit cushions to make her more comfortable while in port and we’ll install a weather station as well.
Eucrante is available for charter from 17:00 Saturday to 09:00 the following Saturday with return to base by 19:00 on Friday evening. Being based in Aegina you won’t have to spend the first and last nights of your holiday sailing to/from Athens.
The bareboat charter price for 2015 is €2460 / £2050 per week between June and September and €2338 / £1948 per week for the other months. For two-week bookings, We offer a 5% discount on the second week.
This includes linen & towels and use of all equipment on board.
End cleaning of the yacht is €75 payable in cash before departure. You will also need to leave a €2000 refundable security deposit, which can be put on a Visa or Mastercard. This will be returned to you at the end of the charter, less payments for any loss or damage.
If you prefer to start or finish in Athens we can arrange for a skipper and crew to bring her over or return her to our base, subject to availability. The transfer fee is 180 euro.
You can take an RYA course while on board. We offer either a fully-inclusive 5 or 6 day course or, if you wish to charter bareboat, you can pay for instructor and books.
