The yachting grounds of Greece are amongst the most beautiful and diverse in the world and with a summer season that lasts from April to October, there are plenty of opportunities to experience the spectacular coastlines and many beautiful islands the region has to offer. This time of year can be the best time to visit the East Mediterranean, when the crowds of tourists have dispersed, the weather is comfortable warm and the crystal clear waters are the perfect temperature for swimming and watersports.
A Greece luxury charter itinerary can also be combined with stop-offs in destinations such as Croatia and Turkey which also benefit from pleasantly long summer seasons. With so many world-renowned historical sites on offer as well as cosmopolitan cities and traditional seaside villages, the quieter months of September and October can be great way to discover new places that you might not otherwise explore during the high summer months.
A late season vaction on board a luxury crewed charter yacht in Turkey is ideal for some peaceful relaxation, with waters remaining warm well into October. The stunning beaches and coves that pepper the glittering Turquoise Coast provide a dramatic backdrop to cocktails on the sundeck of a superyacht while the bustling resort towns of the fashionable Bodrum Peninsula are a great stop-off for some end-of summer partying with friends.
In recent years Greece has firmly established itself as a premiere yacht charter destination and a vast selection of high quality luxury superyachts are now made available for vacations in the area. Charter yachts such as the 45m/147ft OURANOS, the 49m/160ft Benetti ALEXANDRA and the 53m/174ft motor yacht O’RAMA each offer the ultimate Greek island experience alongside luxuriously styled interiors, a fantastic selection of watertoys and very knowledgeable crew.
From the glamorous islands of Mykonos and Santorini to the rustic charm of Hydra, what better way to relax and spend time with loved-ones after a jam-packed summer than on board your very own private luxury yacht?
