Articles A Charterer’s Guide to Greece

With further developments hinting towards a significant opening of Greece's gates to the international superyacht community, there's no better time to start thinking about it as a charter destination.

The true beauty of Greece is found in its never-ending diversity across the historical, cultural, and entertainment realms. However, the breadth and depth of choice can often feel overwhelming for prospective visitors. It is therefore crucial to pick your charter route carefully in collaboration with your broker. Read on for a brief overview of the primary regions in Greece, each of which delivers its own unique taste of what the country has to offer.

1 Mainland Greece

Athens and the Acropolis remain high on the list of must-see places to visit on any trip to Greece and are a fantastic starting point from which to begin your superyacht charter. Experienced aboard a vessel of your own, the wide beaches and whitewashed villages, coupled with the rich maritime history and ancient tradition, will undoubtedly provoke a unique feeling of intrigue and awe unparalleled anywhere else.
