Let us arrange a sailing tour especially for you. You will see from your first minutes on board on, how much efforts we put into the personalization of your trip. The experienced and English-speaking captain Babis will be at your disposal at any time during the whole cruise. If you wish, you may even be part of the crew. Captain Babis has been the owner of a sailing school for many years, which means he could teach you many things while sailing: if you want, you can be very active during the tour and learn plenty of sailing tips, or if you prefer enjoying the sun, wind and sea, this is possible as well. Only you decide where you want to sail to on the Ionian Islands in Greece.

Sailing Ionian islands – An overview

Obviously the owner of the yacht has to be an experienced captain as well. Captain Babis will show you the most beautiful bays on your way and the typical, traditional taverns in idyllic bays or restaurants in dreamy fish ports. If Babis is not able to sail with you for this once, he will hand his S/Y Jenny to a trustful other skipper.

The optimal mixture of sailing and stay on the islands makes a sailing tour in Greece interesting for both kids and adults. We recommend you to combine the sailing trip with a stay on Zakynthos or Kefalonia for example (depending on the flight). By doing so, you canbenefit of all the advantages of a sailing week, during which you will discover incredible places, beaches or bays, and can afterwards relax one week in an hotel on the island you will have chosen, and learn more about the history, people and culture of the island.

Breakfast is served on board, and is included in the price. Other foods and drinks can be bought before departing or on the following morning. There is, of course, a fridge on the board. Lunch can be prepared individually in the kitchen on board. You can visit typical taverns and restaurants and enjoy traditional Greek cuisine with regional products in the evening. If you wish, you can have dinner on board and admire the starry sky and the port while eating on the yacht!

About S/Y Laura or S/Y Jenny

You will be sailing on a classic Perry 47 yacht . It was built especially for the owner, so that the division of cabins is very spacious. You will sail with a maximum of 7 other passengers, so there remains a lot of space for privacy.

The living room offers a cozy and stylish atmosphere, with a comfortable sitting corner and a big bar table. In the back cabin is a bedroom with a king-size-bed (1,80*2,00) waiting for you. This cabin is also adapted to families with small children. The front cabin has enough space for two people, and near each cabin is a shower room with wash basin and toilet. As an extra sleeping place (if needed), there is a pull-out double bed in the living room, and a single bed near the navigation corner.

As a real “Old-timer”, the yacht is overhauled and updated by the owner every year. Despite the necessary modernization, we did our best to keep the uniqueness and the classical style on board.
Maximum capacity: 3 double cabins, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen.

Breakfast on board, or outside depending on the weather, and tour on the beach. The wishes of the guests cannot be possibly always fulfilled.

Not inclusive: Tips for the captain are not obligatory.

Extra costs: You will have to pay a single fee of 50€ per person and week (20€ for kids under 14 years old) into an on-board cash box. This money will be used to pay the fuel, the insurance, the local taxes, port taxes, the charges involving the bed linen, the water and electricity bill, as well as food on board.
Important tips: Changes in the route can occur, due to bad weather conditions, or unexpected matters. In this case, the captain makes a decision himself. The minimum per boat are 4 full-fare passengers.
