Greece is the ideal place for a surreal escape to the endless blue. Its seas and islands need no further introduction. By sailboat or motorized craft, inflatable or even by boat – the choices are endless. Deserted beaches that cannot be reached by land are in abundance. Escaping to the blue by boat has its own unique charm that is linked to man's primordial need to become an integral part of nature.

Dozens of companies rent out recreational boats. Known for their professionalism and large experience, they are a guarantee for safe, economical and unforgettable holidays for the group or family who decide to try this one-of-a-kind and memorable experience. The Greek seas and coasts, with their many comparative advantages, have made yachting a very popular activity, among both the Greek people and foreign visitors. 

A trip on the calm Greek waters, on your own or a chartered yacht, offers you the possibility to sail among extremely beautiful clusters of islands, to anchor in naturally protected bays of rare beauty, to visit inaccessible beaches and to swim with safety in exceptionally clear and transparent waters.
