There is no age to get closer to the world of sailing, we had boat a child of seven months and a girl that her first week of charter did it at the age of 1 year and from there no longer stopped. The boat children enjoy a lot and with proper care can lead you on a cruise even from very small. If you opt for accommodation in boarding the cab was a little more tied, because you have to choose a time when there is another family with children, so you do not become bored and maybe not disturb the rest of 'crew. If you choose to rent a boat in autonomy or in bareboat or yacht with skipper, will the children to give rhythm to your holiday and are not sure how often they want to believe to stop you from making sailing holiday. Surely if quand take them by boat to swim already know or at least have no fear of the water they will enjoy more and you're probably more relaxed.
Us about the middle of April we already have the first boats ready for summer rental, moored at the marina of Lefkas. The charter will continue until early November.
Of course! Typically retailers have a certain fondness for cash, but almost all accept pagamneti with credit cards or debit cards. However in case you need cash, the ATM distributors foreign tourists do not have any problem to withdraw, the limit is set by your bank. All the problems we have in the past and which has been discussed so much in the news, were reported only to the greek people.
On all our boats, both sail boats from 33 feet on that catamarans, you can have the Wi-Fi on board, booking it at the time of the booking confirmation of the boat or with a certain advance of the start of the week charter. We still remember that in almost every bar you will encounter during your stay on a sailing boat in the Ionian Greece there is the ability to connect to Wi-Fi for free, asking for the password in exchange for a beer or coffee.
If you decide to take the car, you can leave the marina right in front of where your boat is moored. You can easily download your luggage or your galley, if you brought from home without having to walk for hundreds of meters under the sun. The area is very quiet and with the flow there is, in many years of our experience there has never been any problem.
All our sailing boats are equipped with battened mainsail, as we believe the opposite of how most people think, it is much easier to run the boat, even for inexperienced crews. Furthermore the sail yield is better and more stability to the boat especially in the case of reefed sails.
Both of our Catamarans is the Lagoon 400 S2 that the Lagoon 421 have 4 cabins and 4 bathrooms, generator, fans in cabins and dinet.
The Lagoon 400 S2 has 2 crew cabins, while the Lagoon 421 has room and bathroom skipper.
Both are new, respectively in 2016 and 2014.
The Bavaria 38 has 3 large double cabins and one bathroom, which is accessible from two parties is the square directly from the cabin. The spaces are comfortable for 6 people but the crew can be up to 8. The dinet still allows to sleep there comfortably.
Our boats are available for hire in Greece in Lefkas by the end of April, the clime is mild and already you are fine. It is then up to you based on what kind of cruise you want. If your priority is sailing on a sailing boat and visit the places in relaxing you can do even charter of May. If you want the confidence to take baths and go home with a nice tan, we recommend from June onwards. Of course for August rent is the busiest month. September is still very good for the charter, both the sun, tanning, diving and relaxation. October is again for lovers of sailing in a pure sailboat.
Well, the good reasons we believe there are:
We are the largest company charter Italian shipowner in Greece, at least until proven otherwise, yes because we are not an agency that rents boats shipowners by companies in August and then in turn rents to its customers. We have owned the boats regularly registered to hire in Greece and our season runs from late April to early November.
We show our face. Also opening our site for the first time, you can immediately see who we are, we do not put a name there and just, we are Roberto and Romina di avelecazzate.
Being a company of charter shipowner family business, because to a certain number of boats you can be able to do, then it becomes impossible, the relationship established with our clients we see reconfirmed over the years in many cases turns into friendship, there affezzioniamo and what we try to give him every time is more.
We started with a boat and now we have five two catamarans, this has cost many sacrifices, but also means that although their parties during the crisis years in 2007, we have strived to always give something more to our customer and they have paid off.
Yes. Our catamarans have a generator that allows to remain longer at anchor, without needing to go to the marina to charge the batteries. In addition you will never have problems, you can leave all the lights on without having to worry about battery consumption, you can take the hair dryer and use it at any time of the day, load all phones and coomputer together.
Yes, if you rent a sailboat or catamaran through our charter company, you can then entrust to your trusted boat skipper who will be responsible for the entire duration of your cruise.
Of course! The skipper receives a daily pay + food, so its presence can be requested during your week of charter just for a few days, to get familiar with the boat and its sails and try it for yourself maybe in the the flotilla, where still it receives an aid both during the radio navigation and during the mooring of the boat. However, this is difficult in the rental periods in the high season where there is high demand.
On our boats, both sail boats catamarans will find everything you need for navigation, pilot book and nautical charts of the area in which you are renting the boat (Ionian Greece or Italy).
You will also find another pilot's book made by us, where you'll find many other indications on the routes that we propose.
Unfortunately not! On our sailing boats, we do not host any kind of animal in any type of rental, not to rent with skipper and non to rent without skipper. This is not because we are not animal lovers, but why do we think first of all needing of spaces that of a medium sized sailing boat like ours does not seem enough. They also do not think it's fair to clients of the week next sequence, as we can not know if any animals are boarded vaccinated, healthy or whatever ... and it could always be inadvertently some hairs that could ruin the cruise to an allergic person. So we can say that at home we have different types of animals, but a cruise on a sailing boat have never done.
The sailboat or catamaran you have chosen for your week of charter, at the check-in is delivered clean. You are not required to return it in the same condition as they are being asked to pay for the final cleaning. Even if we appreciate that during the charter will take care as if it were your own, and there be sent back in order as far as possible. Thank you.
All the boats we have are our property. During high season it is possible that our are no longer available, in which case we could offer sailboats for charter companies to our colleagues of trust, but in any case it will will be told.
Our charter base is located in Marina of Lefkas, in the Ionian Greece. Here you will find our moored sailboats and catamarans owned.

No!

Surely the cost of the moorings will not be an expense that affect your week of sailing charter.
No. Like all, also our company charter does not include the price of the rental fuel. The sailboat will be delivered at check-in with a full tank of fuel and elapsed your cruise, you will have to return with a full tank.
