By Oliver Pearson   Last Updated: 31 May 2023

A Mediterranean destination renowned for its spellbinding beauty, Greece is the ultimate vacation hotspot for those in need of some sunshine and tranquility. With its spectacular history and thousands of islands, the region offers a truly unique experience for those visiting onboard a superyacht. Read on and discover why you should book a Greece yacht charter for your next vacation.

To discover the remarkable cruising grounds of Greece on a crewed yacht charter is to discover a world of incredible cuisine, culture, and coastlines. Indeed, from the Cyclades to the Sporades and Ionian Islands, there abounds a beauty that is all but irresistible.

Once home to ancient philosophers and the birthplace of the Olympic games, Greece is also one of the most historic destinations to be found in the Mediterranean.

Now an inviting playground for both motor yachts and sailing yachts, Greece charter guests are able to immerse themselves in this fascinating past, all whilst enjoying modern charms the islands have to offer.

Typically taking place around the Ionian Islands, private yacht charter vacations in Greece can be designed to take visitors through a range of exciting experiences, from exploring iconic architecture, tasting traditional and succulent dishes, and simply cruising a range of beautiful waters.

Characterized by unrivaled hospitality, life on the islands means that disembarking from your yacht is every bit as pleasurable as sitting up on the sundeck and admiring the view.

There can also be no doubt that the range of secret gems on offer around Greece have something to do with its growing popularity amongst the superyacht set. 

Add to this the fact that there exist a number of unpopulated and unexplored islands, and it becomes clear why visiting onboard a superyacht is the best way to appreciate Greece.

For foodies, the small island of Sifnos in the Cyclades chain is hailed as the home of modern Greek cuisine, and a three-day festival that takes place each year is sure to whet the appetite of all who head ashore.
