Top 10 Greece Catamaran Charters for 2024-2025!

Featured Image, four photos of catamarans, from the side, above and inside. Text in the middle: Our recommended Top 10 Catamarans Greece

Catamarans are a popular way of chartering in the Greek islands. The base charter fee is significantly lower compared to other boats and especially to motor yachts. A yacht charter on the Greek island hopping sailing trip is challenging for novice sailors. So, guests with a larger group opt for a catamaran charter.

Due to the lower sailing speeds of catamarans, the most popular sailing vacation spots to charter are the Saronic Gulf and Ionian Islands, all beautiful greek islands Aegean sea with some of the best beaches, and short distances for island hopping. The Cyclades islands are reachable with a crewed catamaran charter, but weather dependent due to strong “meltemi” winds in the summer.

Inquire about starting your luxury crewed catamaran charter in the Cyclades Islands or the Ionian Islands- we are able to provide a list of yachts that are in the area, available for your luxury Yacht charter vacation in Greece.

Over the last couple of years, we have seen an increase in the popularity of crewed catamaran charters in Greece. Popular with first-time charterers, catamarans are a great entry point into the world of crewed charters. Catamarans have low fuel consumption and can often accommodate up to 10 guests, leaving a higher percentage of the Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) for food and drinks.

Another trend of the crewed catamarans in Greece is their increasing size. A few years ago, there were only a few luxury catamarans over 50 feet. The new catamarans in the fleet are much longer; some are over 70 feet and feature a jacuzzi!

ADVANTAGES OF CREWED CATAMARAN CHARTER GREECE

Catamarans are considered sailing yachts and often can leave port when motor yachts are forbidden to sail. A typical situation is August in the Cyclades Islands, where the Meltemi (strong, annual northerly winds) can keep a significant number of yachts grounded. Choosing catamaran sailing allows the captain to use the leeward side of the islands to navigate in protected waters (as far as wind and waves are concerned), taking advantage of the best sailing conditions in the greek archipelagos.

Athens (possibly the Marina Alimos) is the starting location of a typical crewed catamaran charter. Being lighter than the super motor yachts, catamarans can perhaps reach more of the beautiful beaches and secluded coves scattered around the coastline of the greek islands.

The smaller sailing yachts usually accommodate fewer people than catamarans, making the cost per guest higher, while, the larger sailing boats are often more expensive (due to crew size, maintenance costs, boat size, and berthing fees) and are considered more of a luxury.

On the other hand, Motor yachts can host a similar number of guests (up to 12) but at an even higher cost per passenger. Incorporating the APA – especially the cost of fuel (some motor yachts can consume up to 600 liters per hour) makes the difference even more dramatic.

The 55 Bali was great as we were the first paying customers. Beautiful boat with plenty of room. The Captain and first mate were great. Food was top notch and so good that we opted to not do 1 shore dinner and just ate on the boat. We saw and did everything that we set out to see. I would repeat in a heartbeat.

A piece of Advice

NEWER YACHTS ARE OFTEN MORE FUEL-EFFICIENT

 

It is no secret that, compared to sailing yachts, motor yachts consume a large amount of fuel and generally entail significantly higher charter costs. This might be a pivotal consideration for those planning a charter in Greece on a budget. But, for those set on a motor yacht, it is worth looking at newer motor yachts rather than older models. Although an older motor yacht might have a cheaper initial cost, the better fuel efficiency of a newer engine will save you money in the long run.

DON’T SET YOUR BUDGET TOO LOW

 

We have seen a significant increase in size among top-tier motor yachts in recent years allowing for the accommodation of larger groups of guests, along with the inclusion of amenities and luxuries previously uncommon, such as generous water toy collections, open-air Jacuzzis, and much more.

Spending a little more on a motor yacht can get you a lot more for your $$!

BOOK EARLY TO SECURE YOUR YACHT

 

Make sure to book your Greek yacht charter well in advance. Ideally, you would inquire about your coming charter 12 months in advanceWHY? The best charter yachts are often fully booked long in advance and it’s not unusual to see popular dates booked 2 summers ahead for a Greece yacht charter. Inquiring less than 6 months ahead often means that your first choice is unavailable for charter.
