Why Charter a Luxury Motor Yacht in Greece?

A luxury yacht charter in the Greek islands is most likely to start in Athens, due to the presence of several superyacht marinas like Zea Marina, Alimos Marina or the Olympic Marina. If you want to see as much of Greece and the greek islands as possible in the shortest time and do it in luxury, then a power cruising motor yacht is the ideal choice for a greek yacht charter.

Only a handful of superyacht charter locations have marinas able to accommodate larger yachts, and those that do are often hindered by stringent bureaucracy, as well as higher tax rates, unlike the island group of Greece.

Although the number of luxury yachts in Greece is growing faster than the number of berths available, the superyacht segment is well catered for at the major island chains– in the Ionian islands as well as the Cyclades and parts of the Dodecanese Islands. These are also the most popular destinations.

Embarking on a yacht charter in Greece’s enchanting islands provides a respite from the hustle of daily life. Cruise to the Ionian Islands, Saronic Islands, Cyclades Islands, or mainland Greece, immersing yourself in lazy days of discovery amidst Greek culture, historical marvels, crystal-clear waters, and secluded sandy beaches—including the renowned Shipwreck Beach at Zakynthos. Explore picturesque harbors and whitewashed, traditional fishing villages, and dine on fresh seafood and local delicacies at charming tavernas. Uncover ancient ruins, from the iconic Acropolis in Rhodes to the historic island of Delos and the Olympian temples in Katákolon.

Anchoring a superyacht in the Mediterranean and the Ionian Islands

Numerous Mediterranean locations have started prohibiting larger yachts from anchoring just anywhere, “forcing” the yachts to use the marinas. With docking fees between a few thousand to over ten thousand euroes (Capri is a case in point, but Greece isn’t much cheaper), the ability to take advantage of the yacht’s anchor and stabilizers is therefore ever more important.

Although the newer super yachts are equipped with GPS anchors (motors keep the boat in place to prevent the anchor from dragging and destroying sea life), it is still an advantage to be able to use a classic anchor in most places.

Chargers for Larger Groups

If a superyacht wishes to accommodate more than 12 guests (this refers to guests who sleep onboard and is excluding crew), it crosses a threshold for safety that mandates that it must be considered a crew ship. This means additional regulations for life rafts, lifeboats, and other security elements and protocols more comparable to those of commercial liners. For this reason, most yachts will accommodate only up to 12 guests.

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.
