Luxury yacht charter in Greece and the Greek islands

26 April 2016By Sophia Heath

There are a few simple reasons why so many people choose to book a luxury yacht charter in Greece; a stunning, long coastline, clusters of breathtaking islands and warm, clear seas all await your arrival. And with almost 2,000 islands to explore there is no better way to see the country then by chartering a superyacht. Considered to be one of the jewels of the Mediterranean Greece can provide the perfect mixture of sand, sea and seclusion.

Despite the financial uncertainty over the past few years and the Mediterranean refugee crisis, brokers are keen to reassure that it is "business as usual" for superyacht charters in Greece. Last summer a number of the world’s largest yachts still visited the country, including Steve Jobs' yacht Venus.

As well as its stunning natural beauty Greece also has a superb climate for superyacht charters with temperatures in July and August averaging at 28 °C.

Greece is such a popular destination that there is a great selection of luxury yachts for charter to choose from.

Chartering a luxury yacht in Greece will allow you to truly appreciate the beautiful country from the best beaches to the most stunning islands. A typical superyacht charter in Greece will see you hop between the thousands of islands, grouped into the Ionian, Aegean and Cyclades, and explore the most luxurious destinations on the Mediterranean’s longest coastline. Wherever you decide to point your superyacht, you’ll find Greece has it all, from ancient ruins to some of the top Mediterranean party destinations and a seductive combination of history and beauty.

Greece has a long luxury yacht charter season which starts in May and finishes and the end of October, so it is important that you pick the right time of year to visit. If you are looking to dance the night away on one of the best charter party yachts then make sure you visit during the peak summer months. Alternatively if you are looking for a quieter family charter vacation visiting some of the Mediterranean’s best beaches then you may want to consider visiting either at the start or end of the season.

Picking the right charter yacht for your vacation in Greece will also help ensure you make the most of this stunning cruising region.
