IONIAN SAILING CLIENT COMMENTS and REVIEWS
Chartered a 36ft Bavaria with my wife, we spent a few days with an instructor to get ourselves back up to speed after a few years of not sailing. The boat was in fantastic condition, the staff at Sail Ionian were very helpful in helping us book and prepare for the course. The instructor was sharp and very switched on. After the course we cruised around from port to port for the next 6 days.It was a wonderful and unforgettable experience. Recommended for those who want to further their education, and a great place to bareboat charter if you are a seasoned sailor. We were there at the tail end of the season, so the weather was a tiny bit on the chilly side, but there were moorings aplenty and the price was right.
Sail Ionian have an excellent setup. You can tell by the quality of their boats, slick organisation and knowledgeable/friendly staff.
Our fourth time sailing in the Ionian Sea with this company and still as good as ever. As inexperienced sailors we feel very well supported in all respects by the friendly, attentive and always helpful Sail Ionian staff. They are always on hand or the end of a telephone to give advice or provide help when needed. It makes for a very comfortable feeling when sailing in this delightful area. We thoroughly recommend Sail Ionian to anyone wanting to holiday afloat in Greece particularly, if like us, you are relatively new to sailing.
Having sailed in the area for a few years with another company we had always been impressed by how good the 'sail Ionian' boats looked and so this year we decided to call in to the Sail Ionian base in Vliho, we were very kindly invited to take a look at a few of the boats even though it was a very busy 'turnaround day'. We decided immediately that we wanted to charter from this Company and so we booked 'Honey B', a 'Vision 42' for a week September. The whole experience was above our expectation, the team were brilliant and the boat was wonderful, the confirmation of how impressed we are is that we have also entered into a ' Yacht Partnership' and hope to sail with 'sail Ionian' for many years to come.

So look no further, this company is the best.
Already booked 2 weeks 2016!
Have returned for our 4th year with Sail Ionion because they are competitively priced friendly and helpful company that maintain their boats to a very high standard. Nothing is too much trouble, a birthday cake was awaiting as requested to celebrate a crew members birthday and the boat was great. Thank you again.
We've used Sail Ionian for the last 5 years for family sailing holidays as well as a general sailing week with friends. The boats are immaculate and very well maintained and prepared. The whole operation is friendly and professional. We return year after year, which speaks for itself! Cant wait for the next visit.
We were blown over by the great holiday with Sail Ionian. The boat was excellently prepared, best welcome pack we have experienced for what you might need for a 3 week sailing holiday from the pegs for hanging up towels through salt, pepper, oil and vinegar for lunch and dinners to an excellent selection of new pots, pans and crockery even down to details like a good battery powered lighter to start the cooker and antis lip mats for the dining table and lockers. The briefing was very good and thorough And as we have spent several seasons in the sailing area was tailored for our level of experience. Technical or any other questions were only a phone call away. The boat was in tip top condition, we had a 36 foot Bavaria that was about 3 years old with a good selection of navigation instruments that worked (not always the rule from other companies) and enough battery power to run the electrics for several nights in romantic bays and other locations. The staff were helpful responsive and friendly. We had one problem with an instrument that was promptly solved by the engineer on call via mobile phone - well done Matt !!! Would we go again with Sail Ionian, absolutely no question we are arguing over next years dates so we can book early !
We had a fantastic week onboard Gracie which was complimented by the great service from the Sail Ionian team. The yacht was in great condition, and the one small problem we had with the fridge was rectified by very friendly and helpful staff meeting us in our next port. All the Sail Ionian team we met throughout our voyage were always happy to help out with tips on where to visit etc...particular thanks to Tom who provided some berthing training and some more helpful hints when we ran into him later in the week...our group of four aussies and two brits were hoping for a trip to remember and it certainly was. Would highly recommend Sail Ionian to anyone.
The only thing to say of Sail Ionian is that there is nothing bad to say at all. Superbly maintained yachts, fully equipped, clean, everything works as it should. Just look for a bad review on their web site - you won't find any. This September was my sixth visit. I'll be back...
