Fantastic sailing opportunity for Greek islands.

From my base in Porto Rafti , We can cruise on two weeks turn around,or longer,to the Sporades the same to the Saronics and if a stronger crew the Cyclades ...all fantastic opportunity

I spent 5 years sailing the Ionion and 15 years in the Aegean which is probably one of the best sailing areas in the Mediterranean.

Fun cruising 3-6 hours a day, taking in sights with plenty of time for swimming and exploring different places on the way, no long passages planned ,but sometimes occur

The yacht is a First 45f5 owners model in very good clean condition,
She is fast, easy and enjoyable to sail whether you are have little experience or have 1,000 hours under your belt,once you have learned the ropes ,,:-) there are quite a few!!!.Three double cabins two heads and a large saloon with a well appointed galley with a fridge and freezer .

I think 3 + me, is the max, for comfortable sailing..
I also have a large air bed for those that would like to sleep under the stars
To be totally fair i would give preference to female company as it makes thing more pleasant 40 year old -60 ish best.
Two women would work fine .
Costs .I will pay for any maintenance requirements for the yacht.


The day to day, food , diesel fuel , petrol for outboard, gas, washing , laundry ,port fees will average out about 25 pd day to day living costs.

The boat is insured but I shall require you to provide your own in case of any eventuality off the boat.
