Sailing Heaven’s Customer Testimonials

Don’t just take our word for it. Find out how vacationers from around the globe experienced their sailing holidays with charters through Sailing Heaven.

Having bareboat chartered a number of times, we had the best one ever this September with Sailing Heaven. The initial contact and subsequent communications with their boat expert were quick and very helpful, and you knew he was working to make everything go well. The yacht we picked up in Pythagorion on Samos was perfect. We have never had a boat so well looked after and in such perfect condition. She sailed beautifully, particularly in the often over 20 knots we experienced. Much thanks must go to the Base Manager in Samos for organising the handover so well, and helping in other ways, such as providing transport when we needed to return the hire car back to the airport. We highly recommend Sailing Heaven for anyone sailing out of Samos, or anywhere else they sail from.


My husband, 2 girls and I sailed for 2 weeks in August. We had never done anything like this before and we had a fantastic sailing adventure. Their yacht expert took excellent care of us – beginning to end! He was quick to provide useful information and helpful tips. The boat had everything we needed. Our skipper was always so quick to sail and we were thrilled with how much sailing we actually did. He kept it safe, fun, and educational – for all this we will be forever thankful. We sailed, we swam, we saw amazing places, we met amazing people, we saw dolphins and we enjoyed the amazing food along the way. It really was a trip of a lifetime!! We hope to go again and definitely recommend Sailing Heaven!!!


We booked our sailing trip to the Greek archipelago for July through sailing heaven, and we were extremely happy. The person who managed our booking was very helpful, polite and easy to communicate with. He always responded promptly and made sure all our questions were answered and that our trip was a success. He also gave very good tips on where to go and what places we might want to avoid. Our boat was exactly as promised and served its purpose perfectly. We were also very satisfied with our captain. He was extremely experienced sailor and was able to manage the boat without any help. He made his everything to make sure our sailing went smoothly… All in all, we very very satisfied and can warmly recommend sailing heaven! We are already planning our next trip and we will surely use sailing heaven again.

Yacht Charter Greece

Sailing changes your point of reference as stepping away from the land is like stepping away from the world you know. It redirects your mental focus, reduces your stress, and allows you to relax. The time dimension seems to acquire an altered scale, as the perceived length of a vacation is like stretched, even to the double. A sailing vacation by itself is a rich experience.
In a given length of time you can reach more places on a yacht rental because you may sleep, cook or relax with a book and sunning while someone else from your company takes care of the helm. And when you trim the sails or you are at the helm you don’t care about destination because sailing is the destination.

Sailing holidays in Greece aboard a yacht rental at Kolona and Fikiada bays of Kythnos - Sailing HeavenIf you rent a yacht in Greece you may visit seascape master pieces of nature and inviting swimming places away from the crowd. Navigation is easy and safe, as in Greek waters you maintain always eye contact with a piece of land, being that either the mainland or an island. Once you leave shore you have the view of a next one.
This means also that the distances are short and while you may refresh every day the scenery of your sailing holidays, you have plenty of time to enjoy wonderful and quiet swim stops within your route, and also to anchor in beautiful seaside villages early in the afternoon leaving you time, depending on your preferences, to enjoy a variety of quiet, romantic, or cosmopolitan nightlife. Such kind of holiday is really a rich and unique experience to remember for a lifetime. And every itinerary through the Greek islands feels unique each time, no matter how many times you have done it. This is why it is very rare for someone to sail the Greek seas once only. Usually someone either is unaware and has never done it or has been in the sailing heaven of Greece more than once.
Although there is hardly any other conventional way to enjoy all these, a yacht charter in Greece does not cost very much as compared with other kinds of holidays. Moreover, with the variety of choices, is really available to every economic level. Each yacht rental we offer for charter is well equipped, well maintained and above all, safe. The difference in charter rates between our yacht rentals merely reflect their difference in the purchase price from the shipyard, their difference in size and their difference in the year of build.

We can offer you a yacht charter from Athens to sail to the nearby islands of Saronic and Cyclades or a yacht charter from the Aegean bases for Cyclades and Dodecanese, or a yacht charter from the Ionian bases.

Bareboat Charter Greece

Carefree sailing with a bareboat yacht charter in Greece - Sailing HeavenIf you have the required qualifications and enough experience and confidence and you wish to rent a yacht, then a bareboat charter in Greece is the right choice for you. At sea we learn all the time. Even the most experienced sailor has more things to face and learn.
A bareboat charter is an opportunity to sharpen skills, as sailors always have new experiences every time they untie the mooring lines and feel the direction of wind on their face.
If you have the competence to sail a yacht rental on your own with the help of your family and/or friends then surely the cost is lower as you don’t need a skipper. Our yacht charter prices include VAT and a small amount, regardless to the length of a yacht charter, for clean bed linen/towels and for the overall preparation of the yacht and the departure. Any other costs (fuel, gas, water, meals, port/marina fees, etc.) depend clearly on your preferences. If you use more the sails than the engine and if you do not sail long distances, your fuel consumption will be less. If you cook on board more often than you eat in tavernas then you spend more on gas but the overall cost is much lower. If you anchor your chartered yacht in secluded bays or in picturesque seaside villages rather than in marinas you won’t pay a fee and you will enjoy romantic evenings. And so on.

All the seaside places in Greece are so captivating that it is the ideal place to start planning your sailing holidays. You’ll find stunning turquoise waters, magnificent natural formations, quaint fishing villages, renowned tourist destinations… but if quiet is more your thing there are endless secluded coves to explore.

Skippered Yacht Charter Greece

Sailing holidays on a yacht rental is not just for sailors. It is for everyone seeking something more than the sea, the sun, and a sunbed. We provide professionally trained skippers for those who wish to rent a yacht and enjoy relaxing sailing holidays in Greece or those who wish to get involved and learn the ropes and the sails during a skippered yacht charter in Greece. After all, learning how to sail is easy. Depending on crew eagerness, our skipper will not only show how to navigate but will also provide firsthand knowledge of the Greek island destinations.

Skippered yacht charter in Greece - Sailing HeavenSkippered sailing holidays in Greece are also suitable for qualified sailors who:

  • need more experience and more confidence to take a yacht rental on their own
  • want to get familiar with the Greek waters (first time to Greece)
  • need a hand because no other in their crew may provide sufficient help
  • need a guide to be with them and show the best coves and secluded bays for moorage and/or swimming, as well as the best places in seaside villages to eat and drink
  • want to relax and enjoy leaving the helm and sails in the hands of someone who can be trusted

Our skippers are hospitable, friendly, discrete and knowledgeable about every destination and you will discuss together your preferences and plan your route. Choosing a skippered yacht charter, you also hire the skipper who will take care of the yacht for you and will ensure that you get the most out of your sailing holidays in Greece. When you select from our yachts for rent, keep in mind that you have to provide a cabin or berth in cabin for your skipper as he is obliged to sleep on board. Apart from the skipper’s fee, you have to also provide his meals either from the meals you prepare on board or at an eating place ashore. The skipper’s fee, regardless of the season and the people on board, is €140 to €190 depending on the yacht rental.
You may wish to hire also a cook/hostess. The fee per day is generally 10 euro less than the skipper’s and you need to provide berth and meals as for the skipper.
The running expenses for a skippered yacht charter are just like those of a bareboat charter (fuel, gas, water, meals, port/marina fees, etc.), plus the costs for the hired crew as above.
Although some of our yacht rentals are offered only skippered (yacht charter prices include skipper’s fee), you may choose any of our bareboat charter yachts fitting your needs and let us know if you wish to have a skipper (select the check-box on the form of the yacht rental booking request).

The Greek unspoiled coastline and offshore islands have so many spectacular spots to visit that it is a natural start to any itinerary.
Skippered yacht charter in Greece is all about your own private cruise where you can plan your own itinerary and visit exactly the places and attractions you want, from some of the world’s few truly iconic destinations to serene coves that are not accessible by land.
