Bareboat yacht charter is a fantastic holiday option for qualified sailors who want to skipper their own yacht on holiday.
We operate the newest and best maintained fleet in the Ionian. Our customer service is legendary! From initial enquiry on Day 1 right through to the day you start your charter with us at Sail Ionian, you will be speaking with our friendly, knowledgeable team who are actually based out in Greece. They know the boats, the area and anything holiday related inside out!
Take advantage of our staffs’ local knowledge and top tips at the start of your holiday with our route planning and yacht briefing service, then explore the beautiful Ionian your way.
We offer 7 nights away from base, so you can go sailing on the day of your arrival and start your holiday that bit earlier!

At least one person in your party must be qualified and experienced enough to handle the yacht safely and competently. A minimum level requirement is RYA Day Skipper or an ICC for sail. You can read more on Accepted Qualifications here.
You will be fully briefed on the yacht during your boat handover and given advice on the highlights of the sailing area prior to your departure with our route planning service.
We offer free stern-to mooring practice on the first morning, update you on the weather forecast each day, and are available to help with mooring on the first couple of nights if required.
We have a 24 hour emergency contact number. In case of any emergencies, our team are able to reach anywhere in the immediate sailing area within 20 minutes, with our 350hp RIB called ‘Rodney’.
If you would like more support we offer an Assisted Sailing program where we provide a skipper for the first day or two.
