Luxury Yachts

Fancy New Greek Charter Yachts from $50,000

Bigger Luxury Yachts

Opt for a high-value yacht in Greece for two simple reasons: they’re longer and they’re faster. It’s 140 nautical miles from Athens to Santorini. On a new yacht, that’s 10 hours and 3,000 liters of fuel. On an old one, it’s 16 hours and 12,000 liters of fuel. One way. With current gas prices – do you want to pay for the boat or the fuel?

Plus, a luxury yacht has stabilizers – in motion and at anchor for the high-end ones. Sounds trivial? Think again. In August, with the Meltemi winds whipping through, you’ll need them to keep your guests from turning green.

On top of being faster and safer, luxury yachts will have Hot Tubs, Spas, Jet Skis, and Onboard Cinemas.

The deck offers ample space for relaxation and sunbathing, with towels neatly placed on each lounger. A woman in a white bikini reclines on a lounger, enjoying the sun and sea views.

Picture this: a sun deck on a luxury yacht. Spacious and sleek, it’s an outdoor lounge paradise. White, plush sofas and loungers arranged like a VIP invitation. Towels perfectly placed. A woman in a white bikini basking in the sun, sea views stretching beyond. The view keeps it exclusive. This is the luxury yacht life in Greece.

More Secluded Locations

New, upcoming Locations offer an alternative to the “by now dead romantic idea of Mykonos and Santorini.” Antiparos is a hot charter location frequented by Celebrities like Tom Hanks, Jeff Bezos, and Anderson Cooper. Other top destinations are secluded islands such as Polyaigos and Folegandros, Kefalonia, and the Ionian Sea, with the possibility of passing through the Corinth Canal, one of the world’s narrowest Canals!

Unique Charter Activities

From having one or multiple jetskis onboard your yacht to chartering a Greek temple for your event, things are just easier to do in Greece. We’ve considerably expanded our concierge offering to accommodate requests ranging from beach horseback riding and spearfishing to private jets, luxury cars, and high-end entertainment events.

Market Trends 2018-2024

  • Greece Rises to No. 1 in Global Yacht Chartering

Greece went from being the 3rd most popular yacht charter destination in the world in 2019 to becoming the number 1 destination in 2021, accounting for a whole 23% of the global market.

  • A Significant Increase in the Number of Superyachts

In recent years, we have seen a 20% increase in the number of superyachts available for charter in Greece. The number of charter yachts available for use in Greece is estimated to be over 170,000, where 6600 are for professional use. This number is expected to increase by 200-300 per year.

(data presented by George Vernicos, Secretary General of the Greek Tourism Confederation (SETE) and representative of tourism to the European Economic and Social Committee)

Line graph displaying the historical increase in professional-use yachts in Greece from 2018 to 2023. The graph shows a consistent annual growth of 200 yachts, starting from 6,000 in 2018 and reaching 7,000 by 2023, plotted against a vertical axis representing the number of yachts and a horizontal axis representing the years.
  • Recovering from the Impact of Global Events

The US has played a key role in supporting the luxury yachting sector in Greece, covering losses caused by the Russia-Ukraine Conflict.

Furthermore, according to SETE, travelers felt safer chartering a recreational yacht than engaging in other forms of tourism during the pandemic. This led to an increase in charter activity, in contrast to a radical decrease in other tourist sectors.

  • Plans for Further Development of Infrastructure in Greece

Greece could generate up to 2.8 billion euros by 2031 through the development of 5,164 new berths in its marinas, as highlighted in data conducted by diaNEOsis’ study. However, despite the significant potential, many tourist ports are underutilized, with only 22% operational, pointing to challenges in investment processes and infrastructure management.

Where to Go On Your Luxury Yacht Charter in Greece?

Although predominantly concentrated in the Athens/Piraeus area, you will find luxury yachts available for charter in marinas all across Greece, including Thessaloniki, Chalkidiki, Skiathos, Volos, Mykonos, Corfu, and Rhodes.

How Well do We Know the Yachts?

We have First-Hand Experience

At DMA Yachting, we are proud to have a team of individuals who not only work in the yachting industry but also live it. Many of our brokers have extensive experience with yachts, either working onboard charter yachts or even living onboard, sailing purely for fun, in everything from bay races to circumnavigations.

Our team’s firsthand experience is crucial—it means we’ve been in the shoes of both the crew and the clients. We understand the nuances of life at sea, which drastically differs from life on land.

We Know What Questions to Ask

Understanding how yachts operate also allows our brokers to ask the right questions and spot the finest details during yacht inspections. This inside knowledge ensures that we know precisely what to look for, whether it’s gauging the quality of the onboard amenities or evaluating the professionalism of the crew. Our brokers aren’t just checking boxes; they’re assessing how each element contributes to the sublime experience our clients expect.

All our Brokers attend several yearly yacht shows

Participation in yacht shows is fundamental to our approach. By engaging directly with crews and industry professionals at events like the EMMYS and MEDYS, where our presence was notably strong this year, we exchange ideas, gather insights, and forge great connections. These interactions are invaluable as they allow us to refine our understanding of market trends and client expectations continuously.

This year’s yacht shows have been particularly inspiring, showcasing more and larger yachts, each maintaining exceptionally high standards of service. Our team returned with notebooks brimming with new knowledge, ready to apply these fresh insights to benefit our future clients.

Best time to Charter a Luxury Yacht in Greece

While the summer months of June to August mark the high season for yacht charters in the Greek islands, the Mediterranean climate, characterized by warm temperatures and mild winters, allows for an extended time frame to secure your ideal yacht. For the best Greek islands charter experience, it is recommended to avoid months associated with heavy rainfall, extreme heat, and cold.

The periods of May-June and September-October present quieter and less crowded conditions for marinas, anchorages and general attractions. It is also less hot than at the hight of summer, when temperatures can reach over 30 degrees.

Additionally, charter rates during these months are notably more economical compared to the high season, particularly for sought-after destinations like Santorini and the Cyclades.

Considering the limited availability and high cost of berths for larger yacht charters, early booking is wise. This is especially important during peak season for the more popular marinas, such as the well-frequented Alimos Marina. It is advisable to plan well in advance, as some of the most desirable dates and luxury yachts are reserved up to two summers ahead.

Daniel and Martina were outstanding and helped us execute the trip of a lifetime ! Very responsive and available to assist with anything and everything. They made sure that every detail was addressed and that our family was treated well. We have worked with other Charter Brokers in the past and DMA Yachting service and knowledge was far superior. Highly recommend.
