Crewed Charter

Due to popular demand Sail Ionian can now provide fully crewed charters on a 75ft Ketch. 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.


She has a solid stairway on the side to get in and out the water. After a refreshing swim you will find a shower at the top of the stairs to wash of the salt.
By the way, sleeping on deck is a great experience and our sun beds make a night under the stars very comfortable.

Interior

Once you walk down the stairs from the cockpit to the salon you will understand what we mean by "spacious". The seating area is nearly six metres wide, so it won’t be crowded. Our salon retains a cosy and comfortable atmosphere due to the wooden interior, round table and comfortable chairs. It is equipped with air-conditioning.

Meals can be taken in the salon (or outside) or use it to have a night cap before you go to sleep. There is a good audio system with cd’s and mp3 input, you are welcome to bring your favorite music.

 


Cabins

We have four cabins available for guests each with en suite facilities with toilet and shower. There is plenty of room to store your clothing. Your cabin has a telephone and stereo equipment ready for you along with a vanity table. Each cabin has its own air-conditioning unit which allows you to find a comfortable temperature. During your holiday the cabin offers you maximum privacy to fully relax. Come and have the yacht rock you to sleep!

Galley

It’s common knowledge that sailing goes hand in hand with good food, drinks and enjoying life in general. Our Chef will take care of this important part of your journey through the Ionian Sea. From the small galley amazingly tasty lunches will be prepared with local ingredients. During your stay onboard breakfast and lunch is included in your booking. The yacht is fully provisioned on you arrival aboard, so we can leave straightaway. On the way of course we will get some groceries like fresh bread.

Hostess

Hi and welcome.

I am Michiel your host and skipper of the Yacht. I am fully licenced to sail with yachts like this and larger. The last couple of years I combine business consultancy in winter with sailing her in the long Greek summers.

Once I worked as a navy engineer so I know how to keep the the Yacht going.

As soon as you arrive on board we will set sail and start the holiday. We will sail for another destination every day. Also we can visit quiet bays for the night and have a BBQ with a campfire. In daytime we will really sail and stop at beautiful places to swim and have lunch. You can assist in sailing but you don't have to. Just enjoy it the way you like it best. If you like to learn more about sailing I am happy to teach you.

Warm regards,
Michiel

Hi I am Rolf

Because there can only be one skipper I am firstmate on the Viola. (ha ha) I am also a carpenter and work in the winter in the Netherlands renovating historical buildings.

Being a carpenter is a good thing with all the woodwork on Viola. Apart from her solid steel hull there is a lot of wood to look after.

I sailed a of lot miles with this yacht and can assure you that she will pleasantly surprise you. I welcome you aboard and will do everything possible to make your holiday one you will not forget. So if there is anything you need just let me know.


Welcome aboard,
Rolf

Skipper Michiel and firstmate Rolf are both the owners of the yacht and your hosts for the holiday.

They are down to earth and will welcome you into the relaxed atmosphere on board this sailing yacht.

You will be in safe hands as they know exactly how to handle her in any conditions and, if you would like to learn how to sail they will be happy to teach you.

As well as Michiel and Rolf there is a chef who will prepare breakfast and lunch for you, so you can make the most of your time on board.

The crew accommodation has a separate entrance in the front of the yacht, so the privacy of guests is guaranteed.
