Sailing cabin charter Greece: 7-nights Athens to Ios

Life aboard


Our yachts are specifically designed for the larger seas of the Aegean, as they are built heavier to offer more stability and are the largest and most spacious monohull yachts in the Greek cabin charter industry. The yachts are designed by Ocean Star and have 5 to 6 double cabins all with private washrooms and cabin fans. When you book with us, you will be confirmed to sail aboard one of these very comfortable 40 ton vessels which all have similar layout and features*

The yachts have the following features:

  • double-bed cabins based on double occupancy or single occupancy with supplement
  • one set of linens per week
  • two towels per person per week (beach towels excluded)
  • bunk bed cabin for singles
  • reading lights and cabin fans in each cabin
  • private washroom facilities (shared for singles)
  • equipped galley
  • large open salon with dining table and couch
  • ipod/mp3 sound system
  • generator providing 220V power in each cabin
  • spacious cockpit with external dining table
  • bimini (shade awning) and spray hood
  • GPS
  • kayak, masks and snorkels, zodiac and outboard
  • emergency life rafts, life jackets, harnesses, first–aid kits and the standard safety equipment for sailboats are part of all yacht inventories


2 x forward double cabins with folding bunk bed above and private washroom. There is a small double bed and standing area at the side of the bed with a closet for storage.  The cabins have a large ceiling hatch and side hatches (windows).

2 x extra large double bed cabins with private washroom. Cabins have the widest double beds on the yacht and standing area at the foot of the bed with a closet for storage. The cabins have side hatches (windows).

1 x small double stern with private washroom. Stern cabin is the widest cabin on the yacht offering good space next to the bed and a closet for storage. This cabin has a low ceiling height of 5' 5" and a smaller washroom with access by ladder to the cabin so is offered at a lower rate. The cabin has side hatches (windows). This cabin is only available on one of our yachts and is subject to availability on certain departures only.

Unless the small double stern has been reserved, cabin allocations are made on day of boarding. We are not able to provide specific yacht or crew names in advance.


Two light meals are provided aboard the yacht each day. The hostess/crew onboard will have fresh coffee and tea ready at around 8am each day followed by a breakfast spread which is self-service and generally light continental rather than an American style hot breakfast. As an extra treat and where possible we will offer fresh pastries, pancakes or french toast at certain swim stops! Breakfast generally includes a mixture of:

  • fresh fruit
  • cereals
  • yoghurt
  • fresh bread
  • toast
  • boiled eggs
  • tea, coffee and juice

Lunch is usually served in the shaded cockpit anchored in secluded bays and consists of:

  • fresh bread, crackers, spreads and dips
  • Greek dips: tzatziki, taramou salata, melanzani salata
  • various salads: Greek, tuna, egg, coleslaw, potato, rice or pasta
  • an assortment of cheeses and/or cold cuts as well as olives, capers and bell peppers
  • hot meals may be served on legs when it is possible to prepare: Italian, Asian, or Mexican
  • a sweet or fruit may be served

Beverages such as soft drinks, iced tea and water are included and stowed on board. In the afternoon, we offer coffee or tea and sweets such as chocolate and/or cookies.

Special dietary requirements can be accommodated in some instances with advance notice,  but you are advised to bring your own snack foods if you have intolerences or allergies.  Alcohol, mixer drinks and ice for happy hour are not included.

*Actual accommodation may vary from images shown. On rare occasions an alternative yacht or smaller yacht may be used based on the number of bookings. Our yachts will motor sail in light air to make destinations on time. There is limited shore power/air-conditioning in the Mediterranean. When booking, it is not possible to specify a particular yacht or crew.

Who takes our trips?

The trip is for novice, experienced and non-sailors, you can join in all aspects of life aboard ship and we welcome you to take the helm or you can simply read a book and soak up the sun. You can join us if you are a single, couple or a group of friends as you pay by the cabin. Majority of our guests are couples either younger or older!

What happens each day?

Each day you'll be given the chance to savour the culture of your destination. Your warm and experienced crew will keep you up to date on the bays, classical temples, sites and gourmet restaurants in the region and most days, there is an excursion you can choose to take.  The day will typically start by sailing to the next destination with a lunch stop underway. Upon arrival at the next harbour, the gangplank will go down and you will be free to come and go and explore. Later in the day you can get together for happy hour with your fellow crew mates followed by dinner. Every day there will be another highlighted restaurant, but if you don't wish to join the rest of the crew, then you can choose to find your own little taverna or konoba!  

Swimming and snorkelling

Each day there is a chance to swim and snorkel. The Med is not a tropical destination and therefore is not a diving destination as there is very little to see underwater. However snorkelling is a great way to explore the bays and the few brightly coloured fish. There are a limited masks and snorkels onboard so if you are an avid snorkellor it is best to bring your own. 

You are the crew

A sailing cruise or cabin charter is an adventure sailing vacation where you can participate in all aspects of life aboard ship, this can include:

  • raising and trimming sails and taking a watch
  • assisting with Med mooring/docking the yacht upon arrival at port
  • helping to prepare, serve and clean up meals aboard each day

The best way to provision for happy hour and any personal snacks is upon arrival at the Marinopolis/Carrefour supermarket located diagonally west/left across Poseidonos Blvd. from the marina main entrance. Ice can be purchased at the super market of the Shell gas station at the corner of the marina main entrance road.  Other provisions can be picked up in the islands.

Evening meals

Evening meals are a cultural and gastronomic experience on our program. The wonderful selection of local restaurants on the itinerary, are traditional tavernas that have been chosen for their superb traditional or Greek fusion food, friendly atmosphere and local pricing of approximately 20-30 Euros per person. About 50% of the restaurants on our program do not accept credit card for payments at dinner. 

Restaurant customs

Appetizers and main dishes often arrive at the same time as Greeks are accustomed to many small meze dishes. It is customary to look into the display case and see what is fresh for the day.  Seafood such as calamari, octopus and swordfish is inexpensive but larger white meat fish like grouper and lobster is sold by weight and can be pricey (ask for the price/weight of the fish before ordering). Meals at our wonderful selection of local tavernas average around Euro 20–30/person but can be more depending on your order. There is always a service charge (approx 1 to 2 Euro per person) for sitting at a table in Greece, which includes bread and cutlery - but this service charge is not a tip. If good service is delivered then a minimum 10% tip is welcome.

Cabin charter FAQ's

Is a cabin charter for me?

A cabin charter sailing vacation is a great way to experience the culture of a country and see many coves, beaches and small harbors that larger vessels are unable to enter. A cabin charter is also a great way to make new friends - but it isn't for everyone. Factors to consider are your physical abilities and any medical conditions you may have and how well you enjoy the company of others, you are aboard a yacht which has smaller spaces than a large cruise ship.

How do I know which yacht I am on?

When you book a cabin charter, you are booking a cabin, not a specific yacht or crew. The price paid, includes a cabin on a yacht, meals and services of the crew. Information provided upon booking will detail the type of yacht, ie a monohull or a catamaran yacht and the approximate size of the yacht, ie 47-60ft catamaran. Some of the trips are aboard very large catamarans, if prior to departure, all the cabins do not get booked, then a smaller catamaran could be used in that size range. This will not affect the cabin type, meals, services or itinerary. 

Can I choose my cabin?

No, cabins are allocated on a first come first served basis unless a medical condition requires you to be near to a certain part of the boat.

How physically fit do I have to be? 

Sailing holidays do not require you to have a high level of physical fitness and are suitable for any age. However, a moving boat requires you to be steady on your feet and relatively agile. Some cabin charters require that you are able to climb off and on the yacht by ladder into the sea for swimming and to access the shore by dinghy. This requires some strength and dexterity.

What are the yachts like?

All yachts used for cabin charters offer private cabins, washrooms, indoor and outdoor common areas and access to shore via means of gangplank or tender/dinghy. The yacht is your accommodation and mode of transport while on your trip. The yacht can be either a monohull or a catamaran. Some yachts are more luxurious than others dependent on the destination. Singles may have to share a washroom or pay a 50-75% single supplement. Please refer to individual cabin charter details for details of yacht. 

Am I considered crew?

You will find two or three crew on every  yacht. The crew consists of a skipper and a hostess or cook. The crew sleeps aboard the yacht in crew quarters. Skippers are experienced sailors and qualified to ensure your safety while aboard. They are happy to share their knowledge of the destinations and willing to help you hone your skills if you want to take a more active sailing role while aboard. Hostess' are responsible for provisioning and preparing wonderful meals aboard. Your hostess provides details of what there is to see and do on each island and in some cases will guide hikes ashore. In some instances they also manage the social aspect of your trip with sunset and happy hour activities and great restaurant reservations.

I want luxury is a cabin charter a luxury vacation on a yacht?

Yachts used for cabin charters tend to have basic facilities with some creature comforts. They have private washrooms for each cabin but this can't be considered an en-suite bathroom that you would get in a hotel. The galley is basic and if the yacht is moving any meals produced will generally be cold light meals such as sandwiches or basic salads. To avoid any dissapointment when booking a cabin charter, it is best to think of any type of cabin charter sailing vacation as an adventurous vacation rather than a high-end crewed yachting experience. 

Do I have to get my own group together for a cabin charter?

No. You charter by the cabin, if you have a large enough group then you will have the yacht to yourself, but if there are just two of you then you will be with other cabin charter guests.

Is a cabin charter aboard a sailing yacht like a cruise ship holiday?

No. A cabin charter holiday on a sailing yacht differs from a cruise ship experience, as the number of passengers is between 8-12, while cruise ships may have thousands. Yacht cabins are generally smaller and more streamlined and storage space is more limited. Cabin charters are guided by a captain and a crew/program director, so they are much more intimate cultural experiences than cruise ships. 

I have never been aboard a yacht and can't sail will this be a problem?

No. Cabin charter holidays are relaxing adventure vacations where you can participate as much or as little as you want with the actual sailing. There are crew members aboard the yacht who are responsible for sailing the yacht, your safety and preparing meals as outlined in your particular trip.

Will I get seasick?

The larger yachts used for cabin charters are very stable and sail in conditions that do not upset the vast majority of guests. If you are more prone to car motion sickness, we recommend that you bring your normal medication with you. Skippers and crew aboard all charters offer numerous methods to help alleviate the feeling of motion sickness including starting with short sails, so guests get their sea legs the first few days, which makes all the difference.

I want to learn how to sail, will I be able to get involved?

Skippers on our cabin charters in Greece and Croatia are happy to share their knowledge and willing to help you hone your skills if you want to take a more active sailing role while aboard. Aboard the larger catamarans and Turkish gulets there is less opportunity to be actively involved due to the size of the vessels. It is important to note, that cabin charter holidays are not sailing courses. If you would like to have a more formal sailing experience then sailing courses are a great option.

Are cabin charters just for couples?

No. Cabin charters are a mix of singles, couples, groups and families. At the time of booking you can ask about the group dynamic.

Will I pay a single supplement?

On some of our cabin charters single accommodation is available with no single supplement if you share a washroom. Where there are only double cabins aboard, you will pay a single supplement. Full details of single supplements are outlined with the dates and pricing for each cabin charter.

Is gratuity included?

No. Gratuity is not included in the price of a cabin charter trip. Gratuity is totally at  guest discretiion, but a suggested amount for a 7-night cabin charter trip is Euro100/USD150 per crew member.

Are there children on a cabin charter holiday?

Children are allowed aboard some of our cabin charters but not all. Please check with our office at the time of booking your trip.

Is there an age restriction for a cabin charter sailing holiday?

No. As long as you are physically active we do not put an upper age limit on our trips. If you are under 18, you will need to be escorted by a parent or guardian.

Will I be with people I don't know?

Yes, unless you are booking the entire yacht for your private group. Crew members aboard all cabin charters are experienced at creating a good group dynamic and creating a relaxed and fun environment for everyone to feel comfortable aboard. Cabin charters are a much more intimate experience than cruise ship holidays and you will leave having made new friends. Where possible, passengers with similar interests and of similar age will be grouped together.

Who are my traveling companions?

For privacy reasons we cannot provide you with the names of your traveling companions. However, in some cases we can let you know the ages, interests, background and expectations of other cabin charter guests who fill in their resumé. These tours appeal to a wide range of travelers, most of whom share an adventurous spirit and a desire to experience new destinations regardless of age.

What if another guest behaves inappropriately?

It is vitally important to us that all guests enjoy their time aboard. When booking a cabin charter, you are reserving a cabin aboard a yacht, not the whole yacht so there are a few guidelines that all guests are advised to follow.  It is very rare but if a guest demonstrates inappropriate behavior that goes against the guidelines provided and their behaviour is considered to disrespectful to any other guest, skipper or crew, the skipper reserves the right to terminate their trip and ask them to disembark immediately or at the next port without any applicable refund or recourse.

Can I bring alcohol aboard?

Each of the cabin charters vary with the alcohol they supply, some offer wine with dinner and others for welcome drinks only. You will find full details on individual trip include/exclude details and on your invoice.  

What voltage is onboard the boat?

Generally, the power supply aboard yachts is 12V DC by cigarette adapter so an AC anywhere cigarette 12 volt inverter device is a handy thing to pack if you wish to charge at all times.  In addition, boats have electrical outlets when connected to shore power and generators which generates the standard country voltage. Adapters and power converters (110~220) may be required for North American electronic devices. Many cameras and telephones are 110-220V compatible but check your device. When connected to shore power or an onboard generator the following voltage can be supplied by electrical outlets:

The Med: Greece and Croatia
Voltage 220V with 2-pin European plugs. 

The Caribbean: British Virgin Islands and Martinique
Voltage 110V with 2 flat pin North American plugs. 

The Caribbean: St Martin
Voltage 220V with 2-pin European plugs. 

The Pacific: French Polynesia
Voltage both 110V with 2 flat pin North American plugs and 220V with 2-pin European plugs. It is wise to travel with a multi-adapator. 

Can I use my CPAP device on a yacht?

Aboard yachts there is 12V all the time through the cigarette lighter plug – as you have in a car so an AC anywhere cigarette 12-volt inverter device is a must to bring.  Not all CPAP machines are the same voltage however, so do your research to see if 12v will charge your particular model of CPAP machine. For your own security we advise you travel with:
- a separate re-chargeable battery for your CPAP for emergencies if power is not working.
- bring a long extension 8-12feet with 12V cigarette plug connection – to plug at the navigation station. 
- for shore power on some nights, ensure you have the correct adaptor for local electrical outlets.

I require a special diet with this be accommodated?

It is important to let us know your individual circumstances so the crew can try to accommodate your request. In more remote charter destinations, it will not be possible to buy specialist foods but alternative options could be offered to you. In general, in both the tropics and Greece and Croatia, gluten or lactose free products are quite limited. We advise that you bring your own snack foods as these can be limited.

Are the crew medically trained?

No, the captain and hostess are onboard to sail the boat safely and deliver the trip. Any medical assistance will be provided by medical faciliies onshore. Should you have allergies that may require the use of an epi-pen, you will need to bring your own and make the crew aware that you have this with you.

Can my medical situation or disability be accommodated aboard a yacht?

If you have a medical issue or disability which may affect your trip, you must advise us in writing at the time of booking giving full details. If we feel your health and safety or that of other guests could be in danger or we can't accommodate your particular needs aboard, we will let you know in prior to booking. In both the Tropics, Greece and Croatia is is important to understand that their may not be medical facilities on each island and a transfer may be required should a serious medical condition arise. 

Will refrigeration be available for medicines?

Yes. There is refrigeration aboard all of our cabin charter yachts. Please request the use of this when boarding.

Can I do my own thing for dinner in the evening?

Many of our cabin charters include all inclusive meals and dinner tends to be included aboard. Cabin charters in the Mediterranean have dinner ashore at carefully selected local restaurants in order to try fantastic Mediterranean gastronomy which is an additional charge.  If you do not wish to eat with the group at these restaurants, you can choose to explore and find your own restaurant.

Will I have internet access?

Most yachts do not have their own internet access. In most cases coffee shops and restaurants on shore have internet access and will provide you with an access code if you buy a coffee or meal.  

What shall I pack?

All yachts have limited storage space so it is wise to travel light. Our comprehensive packing list will help with the essentials for traveling. See full packing list

What type of luggage is best to bring?

Quite often bags need to be stored underneath the mattress in cabins so duffle bags with wheels that fold flat are ideal. 

Will there be a hot shower aboard?

Yes. All yachts used on our cabin charter sailing vacations will either have shore power, run the engine or generators to heat water. All washrooms have shower facilities. Fresh water showers are also available at the back of yachts for rinsing after swimming.

Do I need to bring linen and towels or a sleeping bag?

No. Yachts used for our cabin charters all have linen and towels provided.

Are beach towels included?

Beach towels are included on cabin charters in Tahiti, BVI and Martinique. Beach towels are not included on the Greek cabin charters but are 

What food is included?

Each of our cabin charters varies slightly on what is included. You will find full details of what is included on the dates and pricing section of each trip amd on your invoice. 

Will there be ice on board?

Some of our cabin charter yachts have icemakers onboard, on others ice can be purchased and stored in ice boxes. Ask your crew when you board if there are large quantities of ice always available.

How do the toilets flush on a sailing yacht?

Yachts will have either a standard marine head (manual pump handle attached to the pipes) or have a vacuum flush system (electric pump pressed by a button). Skippers will provide a briefing upon boarding to ensure that you know how to use the toilets correctly. Marine toilets only accept natural waste and anything else placed in the toilet will break the toilet.

Will there be air-conditioning on the yacht?

Some of the yachts do have air-conditioning; review the details of individual trips for more information. In European harbours in particular, generators are not allowed after 9pm so it is unlikely that air-conditioning will be ran after that time.  In the Caribbean, air-conditioning tends to run on the yachts from 8am-10pm but is turned off after that time. 

Is there electricity on board, how will I charge my devices?

All yachts have marine batteries to operate electrical equipment and most have cigarette lighter adapter for charging camera batteries and small accessories. Some yachts also have inverters, shore power cables and generators to provide electricity onboard. Most yachts will have electrical sockets in the cabin for use when the generator is on or connected to shore power.

Can I bring a hairdryer?

Skippers will accommodate the use generators for electrical sockets to be used where possible but this may not always be possible.

How much shall we tip the crew?

Your captain and crew will work very hard throughout the trip to provide excellent meals, snacks and drinks and offer great guidance - so it is customary to tip the amounts detailed on any individual charter. Tips are generally given as cash to crew. You can choose the proportions if you would like split your tip between crew members.

What are the terms and conditions of booking?

A booking is confirmed when a deposit payment is received and at that time no further discounts will be offered. Once a booking is confirmed, your trip pricing will not change. Website pricing is subject to change without prior notice. Departure dates are subject to availability and any discounts may change based upon the number of bookings received.

Title: Cabin charter Athens to Ios June 2017

I thought this would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience but everything was so easy and affordable that we will definitely be back. The crew is outstanding, giving us access to restaurants and experiences we wouldn't know about otherwise. Steve, our captain, knows people on each island and gave us tips for what to do at each stop. We booked a one-week adventure and instantly wished we had done 2 weeks. It goes by fast! The boat we had is gorgeous and comfortable. Highly recommend! Do it now!

Title: Sailing Greece by the cabin June 2016

It was my first time in Greece.  The trip was a unique and wonderful experience and was as advertised.  The Christianna is gorgeous!  I thoroughly enjoyed our brief exploration of the islands we went to, the swimming spots, the hikes, the people I met on land, and the tavernas where we ate.  All was intriguing!  Capt. Steven was ever vigilant for the safety of ship and passengers, was informative, and kept us laughing on a number of occasions.  He gave us an excellent safety briefing before leaving Athens and a lengthy briefing before leaving Ios for Santorini, as well as accompanying us to the ferry terminal to ensure we had the proper tickets for Santorini.  Steven also gave me recommendations re Athens which I appreciated.  Crew at the time, Nick B., was eager to help and polite.  I found the group I was with to be exceptionally warm.  We all got along very well.  I much appreciated the upgrade from the stern cabin to a cabin without a ladder!  Please put me on your mailing list for future adventures!  Thank you for making this trip such a successful experience!

Title: Cabin charter in Greece September 2015

This was a trip and adventure of a lifetime for me. I joined 7 other women on a 56' sailboat for the seven day cabin charter on the Aegean Sea trip. I really had no expectations, just hopeful that I could have some quality down-time and rejuvenating days at sea. I was given this and so much more. Our crew, led by a wonderful, patient and kind Greek skipper and the equally kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable first mate made for a fun, relaxed and memorable trip.  Because of their years of experience doing these trips, they could recommend places to visit and dine that were beautiful, historical, reasonable and delicious. The sailing was spectacular, and the islands chosen to visit were different enough to feel like you got a wonderful overview of the Cyclades. I cannot wait to take another trip and highly recommend that anyone thinking of doing a sailboat tour think only of Poseidon Charters.

Title: A family holiday to Greece June 2014

This was our first trip to the Med and it exceeded our wildest expectations! We all like to camp but we've never lived on a boat…so that was a new experience! Our son, Jimi, loved sleeping in the hammock every night. The breakfast and lunches on board were delicious. The highlights for us were the Blue Lagoon, the dolphins, and swinging off the bow like Tarzan! Exploring each port was really interesting and we found lots of cool places under the direction of Captain Steve. We were also delightfully surprised by how social of an experience it was sailing with  the flotilla, we met wonderful people from all over! Happy sailing.

Title: Sailing aboard Christiana VII July 2014

What an amazing trip. Our week was a series of beautiful locations and great sailing. Alex enjoyed sleeping in the hammock on deck in the refreshing breezes, while I (Mom) enjoyed the relative quiet of the cabin. Our ship mates were all easy going and made for lively happy hour companions as we took our chances with bottles of Greek wine! The breakfasts and lunches were exceptional. Sharron must have been a chef in a previous life. The Greek yoghurt and honey made the perfect morning start and the lunches were healthy with each salad more delicious from the last, and the tuna caught by Captain Steve made the BBQ divine! The expertise of the crew was evident in the smooth sailing, and expert docking. I'll never forget the show at Hydra with boats stacked up! Thank you for a wonderful week. We can't wait to come back and sail with you again.

When I stood watch and sailed into the passage between Athens and Poros I had tears in my eyes from joy and happiness. Thank you for helping me to fulfil a lifelong dream of sailing in Greece (and it's been a long life!!). Catching the tuna that fed 36 people was just a bonus! I was completely confident in Captain Steve's skills, and had no worries. Sharron you are unflappable, constantly calm and a wonderful sailing companion. Thank you both for your stories, skills and food!
