Bareboat Yacht Charter, Luxury Sailing Holidays
Informal Flotilla, Skippered Charter, RYA Training and much more!


Sail Ionian is a friendly, family owned yacht charter company, run personally by the current owners for the last 15 years. We are based in Vliho Bay on the Greek island of Lefkada. Sail Ionian has been built up on a foundation of dedicated service and a passion for the sailing lifestyle and the ever popular holiday destination of the Ionian.

Charter your own luxury yacht for 7, 10, or 14 nights! With Sail Ionian the boat you book is owned, chartered and personally cared by for us - we are no yacht agents! We offer exceptionally high standards of maintenance and cleanliness of all of our yachts and provide a fast and comprehensive support service whilst you are in the Ionian on holiday if required. Our Sunday & Monday mooring assistance is unique to Sail Ionian and provides our guests with initial support to refresh their skills.

There is nothing -- absolutely nothing -- half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you're always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not.⁠
