Assisted Sailing per day**
€150 Per day. We provide assistance with stern mooring on Sundays and Monday mornings free of charge
*If our skippers are onboard overnight they will require a cabin, and the charterer is responsible for their food. We reserve the right to insist on a skipper if we feel your sailing skills are not sufficient to handle the boat in the sailing area.
**For charterers with limited experience or those needing a refresher we provide assistance and training, but don't stay on the boat overnight. We would expect after two or three days you would then be able to carry on taking the boat around the Southern Ionian by yourselves. This is very useful as a refresher whilst you familiarise yourselves with the yacht and such things as Mediterranean mooring. Note the assisted sailing area is limited.



The yacht is fully insured

As with all insurance policies there is an excess on the policy, you may either take responsibility in full for this excess by paying a refundable Security Deposit, or pay a NON Refundable Damage Waiver, the rates for these options are shown above.

Personal Travel Insurance

With all holidays it is advisable to take out personal travel insurance to cover, cancelling or cutting short your holiday, Emergency medical expenses, travel delay and missed departure, personal possessions, etc.. There are many companies that provide, and you may also have cover with your hosehold policy.

Our sailing area is inland and coastal and you do not travel more than 12 miles off shore, hence you would not normally need any special policy to cover cruising sailing.

Sail Ionian


Sail Ionian is a small, friendly, family owned and run yacht charter company based on the island of Lefkas in Greece, ideally located for sailing holidays exploring the Southern and Northern Ionian.

We specialise in Bareboat Yacht Charter, Assisted Sailing and RYA Sailing Courses. For the less experienced sailors, we are pleased to skipper your yacht for part or all of your sailing holiday whilst you gain confidence.

Our aim is to provide the highest standard of sailing holiday possible to all of our clients, both new and returning. This is achieved by maintaining constant high levels of yacht maintenance, cleaning and staff training. All our charter yachts have completed no more than four seasons of charter, with NEW yachts being added each year. All yachts from 35 foot upwards (excluding 43) are teak decked and fully equiped. In the unlikely event of you needing support, backup is provided by a large rib which can reach anywhere in the Southern Ionion in a short space of time.

FREE - Food and drink welcome pack - Dinghy - Outboard (All Bavarias) - Bed Linen - Yacht Towels - Last Night drinks & Pimms Party - Full Support from our dedicated team - Daily weather by SMS - Free Stern mooring practice - Assistance with route planning
