Client Review: Catamaran Charter Sailing from Athens to Mykonos

Updated: Aug 16, 2019

Another Successful Crewed Catamaran Charter in Greece is done! Remember when we went to the Med yacht show Greece last year? We immediately helped plan several charters for our clients who booked 10-12 months in advance. This group had a great time!

“The kids have just loved this adventure and they’re having a blast! This crew is wonderful. Today we saw dolphins and a red full moon and we barbecued on the beach! Every day has been packed with fun activities and special moments”. ~Jennifer ❤️

Jennifer's Post-Charter Tips:

  1. Greek Food is Heavy: Ask for Lighter fare with more fish, salads, less meat and gravies, more veggies.

  2. Bring your own bluetooth speaker: Connecting to auxiliary speakers was not easy.

  3. Bring comfy cozy summer sweaters and linen pants and your own Turkish towel

  4. They REALLY poured their hearts into making us happy--they were trying! For example, they told us they were using LOTS of ice because they knew as Americans, we like ice. "The cup is 1/3 full!" they said proudly and I said, "Make it 2/3" and they said "Then there is no room for the drink??" We laughed about these cultural differences and it was just delightful!

  5. The weather may or may not allow you to sail to Santorini, so adjust your expectations and go with the flow.

Their Itinerary: Athens > Kea > Kythos > Syros > Paros > Mykonos

SEA ENERGY V is a 2017 50’ Saba Catamaran that accommodates up to 10 guests in 5 Ensuite Queen Cabins.
