Grand cru

Viola- 75 ft Ketch built between 1990- 1997

Meet Viola, she has a hull speed of 12 knots, and is ideal for the larger party who wants to be looked after.

She can accommodate up to 8 guests in addition to her Skipper, mate and hostess who have their own accommodation.

The owners, Rolf and Michiel, will take you sailing through the breathtaking scenery of the Ionian Sea. With the yacht anchored in one of the idyllic bays, you may want to go for a swim in the clear blue water before or after lunch. It’s up to you whether you have an active sailing week working along with the crew, or have a more laid back week while relaxing with a book or a beer. It’s possible to go water-skiing, snorkeling or even diving. In the evening you can choose either a BBQ on a deserted beach under the stars, or to wine and dine at a restaurant ashore. You may think that chartering a yacht like this is only for the rich and famous, but you will find the rates surprisingly competitive. You can charter the whole yacht for your group of family and friends, or you can book a cabin for two. The minimum booking period is one week and we sail with a maximum of eight guests only!

In the Greek climate you will spend most of your time outside, especially while on a yacht therefore it is good to know we have 90 square metres of teak deck available for you. The cockpit is spacious and fits up to 18 people, whereas we have a maximum of 8 guests, so there is be plenty of room to make yourself comfortable.

The whole cockpit area is covered by a bimini (sun tent) to provide some shade to keep cool. If instead you want to work on your tan, we have sun beds ready for you on the foredeck and centre where you can gaze at the ocean or relax with a book while the yacht is cutting through the water under sail.
