Our passion is sailing!
We believe in providing a personal touch beyond just making your reservations.
Our team has sailed extensively and have first-hand knowledge of the yachts we book for.
We’re in the business of making your sailing vacation arrangements hassle-free.
For those with a passion for sailing and a wish to escape the fast pace of modern life, a bareboat charter is the perfect holiday.
A bareboat charter is an arrangement for chartering a yacht whereby no crew is provided, and the charterer is solely responsible for the care and handling of the yacht.
MainSaiL offers a wide range of sailing yachts for bareboat charter in some of the most beautiful locations in Greece.
Our bareboat yachts range in size from 34′ – 51′ feet and can accommodate between a minimum of 2 to a maximum of 12 people on board.
All our yachts are equipped to a very high standard and include full charter equipment, navigation equipment, safety equipment, fully appointed galleys, complete set of linens (sheets, blankets, pillows and towels), dinghy, outboard, bimini tops, sprayhoods, etc.
In order to charter a yacht bareboat, the local port authorities require at least the designated skipper holds an official sailing license.
Those who wish to charter a yacht but don’t know how to sail, or wish to sit back and relax while someone else does all the work, have the option of hiring a skipper.
A skipper will bring years of sailing experience and a wealth of local knowledge making him the ideal guide to whichever cruising ground you choose to explore.
A skippered yacht charter is the perfect holiday to relax and unwind and for some this does not include working in the galley.
A hostess / cook can also be hired to look after the provisioning and provide your meals on board.
Please remember that a skipper, or a hostess, will require his / her own berth and provisioning to be provided for the duration of the charter.
Please be certain that the number of people in your party and the number of crew you wish to hire does not exceed the maximum occupancy allowed on board the yacht you intend to charter.
Terms and Conditions
Our yachts are available to charter from our main base in Athens Alimos marina (operating all year round) and from our second base in Volos Achillio Magnesia,(operating mid- May to early October).
Depending on which base the yacht is located prior to a booking, a yacht transfer fee may apply.
For charter requests from Skiathos, we highly advise chartering from our base in Achillio instead of Skiathos port , as we have facilities there (incl. wifi and safe-keeping of luggage) and can better serve our clients.
In addition it is calmer, suited for a nice evening out and a much better sleep, while clients who arrive early can enjoy a nice swim in the beach while waiting for the yachts to be cleaned and be ready for the check-in at 17:00 or earlier.
