Bareboat Yacht Holidays

Bareboat sailing is ideal for those with experience who prefer to decide on their own pace and itinerary. Alternatively, join our Flexi-Flotilla and mix up the social aspects of our fun and friendly flotilla with the freedom of Bareboat sailing.

 

We have a range of yachts from 35 to 52 feet, based at Lefkas marina. All our yachts are well maintained and handed over at the start of your week with yacht systems training and yacht base support.

 

You are free to organise your own itinerary and push off from Lefkas marina when you choose. As a Bareboater, you will then return the boat back to Lefkas by the designated return-time on the following Saturday afternoon after your week of sailing. Our lead crew will still be on hand to help you with your planning and will never be much further than a VHF radio or mobile phone call away.

 

Travel

You can self-travel and organise your own flights and transfers or we can organise everything for you. Our yacht charter holidays with flights have 100% financial protection. We are an ATOL bonded, fully licensed Tour Operator.

A Diverse Range Of 
Modern Cruisers

 

What Do I Need?

 

Choose from a great range of very modern yachts in our Lefkas marina fleet, from 36 to 50 feet. They are fully equipped with galley (kitchen) and everything that you will need for your week.

Each yacht is prepared for your arrival, including bed linen and towels, so you’ll just need your food and drink!


More on our Yacht Fleet >

 

To hire a yacht for a bareboat or flotilla charter in Greece requires the skipper to have some previous sailing experience and either an RYA Day Skipper, RYA Coastal Skipper or RYA Keelboat 2 certificate, or an International Certificate of Competence (ICC).

Sailors without these qualifications, (but with experience), can quite easily take their ICC assessment in just half a day at their local RYA training centre. Alternatively, we offer ICC assessment days in May and June, so you can take the ICC with us!

The Benefits of a Flotilla...
With The Freedom To Choose

 

A Complimentary SUP!

 

Our new Flexi Flotilla allows you to dip in and out of our flotilla and mix up sociable sailing with Bareboating, as you choose.

Perfect for those that don’t want a whole week of flotilla and prefer some time to themselves, but still relish the idea of a sociable group when they want and help with route planning from the lead boat.

Call one of our sales team and express an interest in our Flexi Flotilla option so we can tailor your holiday to your preferences.

 

 

Learn the soulful art of "walking on water" whilst you are away! Paddleboarding around a beautiful lunch anchorage or island stop over is an incredible experience, and kids love it!

Each of our Flotilla and Bareboat charters come with a free SUP for the week. This ultra-modern inflatable SUP can be packed away or left on deck.

Visit Our Surf Hotel for 
Complimentary Activities

 

The Best Of Both Worlds

Our Flotilla and Bareboat guests are offered the chance to visit the Surf Hotel in Vassiliki during a stop over on Wednesday to join in with our watersports programme. Try dinghy sailing, windsurfing or just relax by the pool while the kids go wild!

All boats will be offered this great opportunity on arrival and it's not one to be missed. If any lessons are required these are available from £25 per hour, but the kit is free for you to use for a few hours!

 

 

Why not combine a yacht flotilla or bareboat with a week at our fantastic Surf Hotel Beach Club in Vassiliki.

Week 1 at the Surf Hotel for dinghy sailing, windsurfing, kids clubs, activities and relaxation followed by week 2 on board your own yacht starting in Lefkas marina, a 30min transfer away.

Our base at Lefkas marina on Lefkada perfectly serves the southern Ionian and the many picturesque Islands which offer thousands of miles of stunning coastline with clear water inlets, bays and quaint harbour towns to explore.

The Ionian's are the least challenging of our destinations and offer sailors a sheltered sailing area with flat waters, short island-hopping distances, line-ofsight sailing and easy-holding anchorages. Expect wonderful cultural sights and many interesting things-to-do to break up the sailing on each new island that you visit. But it’s the fair winds and friendly welcome in every port with a guarantee of hot sunshine and a long summer which makes it a mecca for sailors of all ability.
