Cyclades cabin charter

Share A Sail On A Large Yacht

The Cyclades cabin charter includes many of the best known Greek Islands, including Santorini, Mykonos and Paros. There are many smaller less touristy places too and your Cyclades cabin charter offers a splendid variety of islands large and small.

The cruises take place on yachts over 50 ft long, with a professional skipper and hostess to look after the maximum 8 guests. You’re welcome to join in with the sailing, or just sit back and relax.

Breakfast and lunch on board are included with regular tea, coffee and as much water as you can drink. Each night you’ll visit a new port with time to explore ashore and get a meal.

There are two one week itineraries which can be joined to form a two week cruise. The cruises start and finish in Mykonos ever Saturday. Mykonos has direct flights from Gatwick, Heathrow and Manchester.

Your Cyclades cabin charter is available with or without flights and if you want to tack on a shore stay before or after your cruise, that’s possible too.

The Cyclades is one of the windier sailing areas in Greece, especially when the Meltemi wind blows in July and August. However your large yacht will ride the waves with ease and you’ll be the envy of those on smaller yachts. However, if you’re susceptible to sea sickness, the Ionian cabin charter offers a less windy area.

For more about the Cyclades, see Sailing the Cyclades. For pictures, see the Cyclades: Gallery. For prices, you’ll need the Cabin Charter Prices page.

    • Paroikia (Paros) Paroikia is the capital of Paros Island and typically Cycladic. A maze of shimmering, white cubic houses meander uphill from the bustling harbour and associated restaurants and bars.

Images of its dazzling white buildings and cobalt blue domes, set along precipitous cliffs ringing the indigo sea of the old volcanic caldera, grace calendars everywhere.

    • Folegandros Folegandros is well off the beaten path for most charter yachts. Somewhat stark at first glance, the only real greenery in the island gathers around the islands capital of Chora which is built precariously close to a 200m cliff edge. This is a pleasant and rather sophisticated place to make for on your sailing holiday ... Read more

    • Naxos Naxos is a surprisingly un-touristy town that has a halcyon charm all of its own. I was once stormbound here and developed an unexpected fondness for the place so maybe I am biased!

Cyclades cabin charter – The Yachts

Ocean Star 51.1 Christiana

Ocean Star 51.1 Christiana

Two yachts are used on these share a sail cruises.

Christiana is an Ocean Star 51.1, a very sturdy design built to order in Greece. With her dark blue hull she cuts a fine figure.

Down below there’s a spacious saloon with two double and two twin cabins, most with en suite facilities. Up in the bows is the crew cabin, home to your skipper and hostess.

The galley houses a fridge, microwave and cooker. The CD player with mp3 input is connected to deck speakers so you can have music as you go.

Sun Odyssey 52.2

Sun Odyssey 52.2

Malama is a Sun Odyssey 52.2 designed by Bruce Farr, creator of many a winning racing yacht, and built by Jeanneau.

Don’t worry; down below you’ll find not the spartan conditions that racing yachtsmen have to tolerate but spacious and well equipped acccommodation. This includes four double cabins for guests, each equipped with en suite shower & toilet, all built around the airy saloon.

In the galley there’s a microwave, 2 large fridges and a cooker. Like Christiana, there’s a CD with mp3 socket connected to deck speakers so you can listen whilst lounging in the large cockpit.

Both yachts have a bimini shade over the cushioned cockpit. Sun worshippers will find plenty of space around the deck to get some rays. At the rear is a swimming platform and deck shower.
