Very enjoyable holiday and very pleased with island Sailing and their yacht. Will book again
Firstly, I can not speak highly enough of Evan our skipper..He was fantastic.. looking after us at every port and sailing the boat well, in extremely difficult conditions. He was engaging, yet not intrusive and even cooked some amazing greek food for us.Also, Yannis serviced us well, answer all questions and concerns promptly and efficiently.The boat was as described, and the cleanliness etc was good, however some equipment seemed to stop working occasionally and evan had to fix them, which he did, such as the generator and water pumps.We all had a great time, and the islands were amazing. I would not hesitate to book with islandsailing.gr in the future.
Another stunning holiday withe the best skipper in the world, not one complaint and will do it again.Thanks again
Excellent service, great boat for charter !
Excellent availability and support of Islandsailing.gr for preparing the charter. Comments and suggestions were really useful.Very good organisation at the Skiathos base leading to an efficient preparation and good support of the team there.
Hey Yannis,Had a great time, thanks, for next year we would like to try something new, maybe the Ionian sea..but this time we would like to have a yacht with air condition…:-)
We had an amazing time. Georgios, our skipper, was friendly and very knowledgeable on the history of the islands.He crafted a custom itinerary that was perfect for us and gave great advice on what to see and where to eat in each port.
I was very happy with your service. Your communication was clear, friendly and responsive and I would certainly recommend your firm to others.
This has been the trip of a lifetime! The crew was amazing! I couldn’t ask for more!!I also liked it because we got to go toubing a lot of times. It was so much fun.I could feel free because of the wind and we were allowed to swim whenever we wanted.We even got to see real dolphins... that was amazing.The crew was the best ever! I wish we could do this more. I can’t wait to do this again. It was wonderful!!
Everything went very well. From booking to check-in to check-out
Great Holidays, thank you. We sould start planning for next summer….
Good sailing with excellent winds. Overall boat good with some minor issues with rigging and long shore lines.Windlass motor underpowered.Would use Island Sailing again
Really a perfect catamaran and service. Great support from Yannis (Island Sailing) as well, during the 2 weeks of holiday: precise and available at any time. For sure a company I will sail again with.
Hi Yannis, Thank you for your support to make this year’s sailing work out well in the Sporades.Everything worked out well and we had really good weather. We were enjoying the warm waters and the easy winds. Next year we need a larger yacht
We had a good week sailing, went south, weather was good, thanks for you help in arranging everything
We were all so happy with the trip, and your own service is great.We do hope to come back to greek waters and we know who to contact :-)Many regardsMogens
On behalf of the seven of us on board we all enjoyed every amazing minute of our sailing trip around various Greek islands. When you consider it was the end of the season, the route we took was carefully planned by Andros to get the best conitions possible and that was achieved 100%. Our hostess Lina provided us with beautiful fresh food every day, and the coffee was A.1. Each day we stopped at the most equisite locations for swimming and lunch. We would not hesitate to recommend this same experience to anyone.Definitely add it to your bucket list and move it to the top. An experience we all will treasure forever. Top marks to our skipper Andros and hostess Lina couldnt have asked for nicer,professional people.
This was the best yacht and crew anyone could ask for. The skipper Panos recommended where to go as the route we picked was experiencing bad weather . I could not fault his suggestions and we had 7 days of sunshine and calm seas. Dina our hostess was fabulous in looking after us and a fantastic cook and both were very nice people.The boat was spacious and clean. The equipment on board was great fun.I would highly recommend this company as Yannis was very helpful from day 1 when I started enquiring he answered quickly to my emails and many questions. I started planning this trip 18 months before hand as we hired 2 catamarans for a group of 16 so there was numerous emails in this time and I got responses promptly. I would highly recommend this company and the Lagoon 560 with the skipper Panos and host Dina.If I can ever do this again I would do it all the same.Vicki
Everything was perfect for a very nice sailing holiday.The people we met at the bases ( Paros & Kalamaki ) where very kind and professional.Thank you very much for your precious assistance.
I would like to say thank you very much for your kind assistance. I am very impressed by the service, quick relpies to my mails, your help when dealing with this general strike in Greece when my crew and I couldn't get to our start point (Paros).Thank you for being so responsive and for polite communication style - this is what I also highly appreciate. It was my first charter experience and I must say: I am impressed by your welcoming approach to us.I will defenetly recommend your company to anyone looking for a boat to charter in Greece. And hopefully I'll also charter a boat next year again. Best Wishes,Olga
Thank you for everything. The boats were wonderful. We had a wonderful vacation.Thank you again and we'll contact you on our next journey.
For all of our group, this was considered the best trip of our lives!It should be noted that much was due to the excellent crew who served us very well in everything that was requested.Thank Panagiotis, Dina and Maro !!
Great service from Yannis and the Paros base. Yacht was not quite well maintained but it did the job. Would use book through Yannis again. Thanks
Thank you so much for showing us around the Greek islands + swimming areas this past week. We have really enjoyed it.Also, thank you Nikos for being a great captain. Best wishes to you
Condition of the yacht -8- a toilet maintenance issue resulting in a leak and spells. Equipment of the yacht -8- the galley i.e. cutlery, chopping boards, cups, plates and general food prep items need to be updated.
Excellent experience. The Biminy zipper was dysfunctional and we had to fix it, but otherwise it was an excellent charter with an excellent skipper. No problems encountered.
Thank you for everything, it was just a perfect organization from your side.We had a nice week, good weather (a little bit too hot), and a very interesting wind (for me). By chance we found a termal wind blowing 15-25 kns constantly NV-SE between 12:00 and 18:00, excellent for sailing and only few nm out of this passage absolutely no wind.Can I find on internet a map of this termal winds in Greece ? very helpful to know for next time.I am dreaming of a 2 weeks trip next year, Athens - Santorini and back. I need to speak also with my friends, I hope we can organize something together.
Exeptional support from the group of the base in Gouvia Corfou !!!
Yes, everything worked out fine. No complaints at all. Just the Marina at Mykonos is really basic
Dearest Yannis,We had an amazing time, we couldn't have chosen a better crew and experience! We are already plotting how to come back and what to do next year.I'd love to spread the word with my colleagues and friends.
Yannis,I wanted to let you that the trip was amazing and Alex and Gari were fantastic
Yannis, we had a great time.Thanks for everything.
Dear Yannis, beside the minor dinghy issue, everything really OK both with base staff and yacht conditions.
Boat in excellent condition , everything was very good ... See you next year
Everything was good. We had a great holiday with no problems. Base personell was very good and helpful
The over all condition of the yacht was very good, however we had no bucket, hose, brush or any means to clean it. Also there were no spare shackles or short pieces of rope.These are very minor issues and in no way did they affected our holiday.Hope to deal with you next year.Thank you !
Special thanks to Island Sailing and Yannis for arranging everything splendidly
It is the fourth year I am chartering with Islandsailing.gr and I don't think it is easy to find a better charter company. We spent 2 great holidays weeks , especially that the winds were on our side, compensating for the total lack of wind last June. We had the opportunity to visit new islands and to deepen the exploration of the ones we already knew. It is the first time we visited the Cyclades in September and I don't regret it. Beautiful weather, warm water and decent winds. May is nice too, but the weather is more unstable, the water is a lot colder and the winds are a lot less. It was the first time we took the new Bavaria 46 Cruiser. It was a nice experience. Sturdy boat, exceptionally comfortable, eye catching, great rigging... what more could you ask? It is the first time I used the concept of main sheet without traveler. At first I thought it was an economy solution to eliminate the traveler in the detriment of sail trimming. After a few days I discovered how brilliant this system is and how safe it is. It practically eliminates the risk of crash-gybing! And by combining the tension on the two components of the main sheet you can easily and totally compensate the lack of the traveler. The service at the base in Myconos was perfect as always. I think next year I will book two separate sailing holidays. One in May (calmer winds) with the wives and one (longer) in September - boys only!
Everything was excellent and exceeded our expectations (namely, kind assistance of Mr Theodoridis and Mr Aris (base manager) and overall condition of the yacht)!Thank you!
We were all really delighted with Nova Star and her owner. The service we received was truly excellent and everyone went out of their way to help us in anyway possible. Nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending you to other sailors and would love to charter from you again if the opportunity arises. In fact we have already recommended you to a number of sailing groups we met on our travels. I have chartered from Sunsail on six previous occasions but this was a far superior service. Thank you again for an excellent service from start to finish.
Best sailing holiday ever. Domestic Battery not holding charge for more than 20hrs other than that it was perfect. See you next year
Thank you for the excellent organization of charter vacation was great
Many thanks for the excellent service provided for the chartering. We highly enjoyed the sailing holiday in Greece. Everything went well except the outboard engine which was faulty (base staff came to fix but did not bring the right spare parts so this caused us to stay in the same location an additional night).I'd recommend your agency to friends.
It would be great to add portable lamp to the cocpit to have additional light at the evening All of services and our trip was excelent. Thank you
