Award-winning Crewed Charter Yachts in Greece

Updated: Jun 7

Award-winning Yacht Charter Chefs in Greece 2024

🇬🇷Greece has definitely made a name for itself in the field of luxury crewed yacht charter. The 20th East Med Multihull & Yacht Charter Show, recently held in Poros, Greece brought together over 100 yachts, underscoring this country's growing reputation in the yachting world. We were there!

See the list of the award-winning culinary chefs on the crewed yachts at this year's show in Greece and a video of some of our favorite highlights! This show allowed us to go onboard each of the yachts, inspect and meet the crews and enjoy their warm hospitality. Each time we go to this show, we learn helpful new details about where the crewed yachts like to take their guests on a week-long charter. The show also promoted an ecological footprint, in line with the “green” transformation of Poros, in the framework of the “GR-Eco Islands” initiative.

It was Greece's culinary delights that provided yet another highlight of the event. Having the privilege of firsthand witnessing the best crewed charter yachts available in the region, let's honor the winning Chefs! Greece boasts an extensive range of agricultural products, including renowned items such as olives and olive oil, cheeses, wines, mastic, and saffron. These products have garnered international acclaim as Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), earning prestigious distinctions for their exceptional quality and irresistible characteristics. Such recognition is not only a testament to the richness of Greek soil but also to the passion and traditional knowledge passed down through generations to the dedicated producers.

CYBA Yacht Charter Brokers: Capt. Randy & Shelly Tucker!

If you want to experience a luxury yacht charter vacation first hand and up close, there is no better way than on your own privately crewed yacht with a full-time professional Captain and Chef/First Mate. We've been sailing and chartering for well over thirty years.

How We Got Started:

Yacht Charters Guru Captain Randy and Shelly Tucker

The U.S. Virgin Islands and British Virgin Islands were our "backyard" which we came to love and cherish. So much so, that we sold everything in 1997, became a USCG licensed Captain and moved to Charlotte Amalie, USVI as owners & operators aboard the 72' sailing yacht. We do know the ins and outs of this special place & the people who live there. That's what makes us an official "Yacht Charters Guru”!

Never been on a chartered yacht vacation? We will help you personally design your charter yacht vacation in the Caribbean or Mediterranean! Imagine being able to sail into small bays with beautiful white sands & fantastic snorkeling. A yacht vacation is a great way to spend quality time with your friends or family!

Why use a CYBA Certified Yacht Charter Broker?

  • As a member of CYBA, the Charter Yacht Broker’s Association, we adhere to strict yacht charter booking protocols. We have access to the CYBA industry escrow account and E-Contract to protect your money. This is made available by CYBA for electronic use only by established, industry recognized and reputable Yacht Brokers.

  • Charter yacht owners, their hired crews and travel agents do not have access to this account.

  • We have time to answer ALL your questions. If the crew are taking care of guests onboard, they honestly do not have time to answer a lot of travel questions.

  • This is what differentiates professionally licensed yacht brokers from anyone else trying to book charters.

  • Very Important! It is not safe to send your hard-earned money directly to a business or yacht that is not accredited by a professional charter industry association to handle yacht charter client funds. Always ask!

We frequently received compliments for how we've arranged our site, making it easy to see yachts within your price range. Choose from an extensive list of hand-picked yachts on our site that we have personally chosen to represent, including our spacious and stable catamaran charters, power catamarans, traditional monohull sailboat vacations, or high-end luxury motor yacht charters in the U.S. Virgin Islands, British Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Belize, Croatia. Greece, and the Mediterranean.

Yacht Charters Guru Does Not sell Yachts like many other agencies so there is no conflict or distraction in our focus for your yacht charter. Our service is free to you. We travel extensively to boat shows and yacht charter shows worldwide year-round to personally view and inspect as many of the charter yachts and the crews as possible.

Yacht Charters Guru is Proudly Accredited by These Professional Associations!
