We had a wonderful time and we couldn't have asked for a better skipper than Timos. We have become lifelong friends. We did have to bring in our sails however due to an inadequate sized pulley roller. Our experience with our coordinator was also very professional from start to finish.
The boat was excellent, although could use a bit more maintenance on certain cabin elements.
The service - both IslandSailing and base staff- was excellent.
Our skipper, Dimitrios, was superb and highly recommended.
Everything went well! The charter and the boat were very good and we really enjoyed our time in Greece!!
Thanks a lot for your help, if we decide to go again to Greece next year, I will contact you!
Yianni the trip was a success, thank you
I look forward to working with you next year
Charter was very good and all were ok with the yacht.
We had a fantastic time and were so impressed by the communications ahead of the trip that allowed us to plan well in advance, all the help from Yannis and by the condition of the catamaran upon arrival. Our skipper Spiros was the absolute best and blew us away with his knowledge, planning, flexibility and general loveliness to be around. He was a fantastic addition to our group, and we'd go with him and Islandsailing.gr in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything!!!
The service from you and the girls in the office was exceptional. You made the whole process of booking our holiday really easy. The office in Kos was also friendly and easy. George our skipper was fantastic too! The boat was beautiful and comfortable and perfect for us. I would definitely use you again :)
very best wishes
Except dinghy outboard, which is always a gamble, I have to say perfect cata conditions and service.
For sure to be repeated.
The Yacht was very nice. There was a little smell from the waste tank. This seems to be a problem on a lot of charter yachts. the service was very good and friendly.
good boat in good condition
Island Sailing was amazing. Very responsive and helpful throughout our charter. I would recommend 100% and plan to use their service again in the future!
Great time. Departure was a little chaotic. Poor communication from base at Naoussa.
The base crew were excellent from start to finish. We did have an issue with the sail being stuck so returned to the marina, they arrived quickly to the boat and fixed it well and in good time. Island Sailing have been great.
Again Thank you for a lovely holiday
Back again in October
We have thoroughly enjoyed our sailing charter and loved sailing our yacht Philyra. The support from the base team in Lefkada was excellent. Our only suggestion is that Philyra would benefit from a new main sail as the current one is fairly used.
Staff at base were awesome, Olga and family were eager to assist at all times. The boat was not available until around 5pm which was a bit later than we had hoped, as then had to head out of the marina only the next day. FEARLESS was a perfect yacht for our family, just enough space and easy to handle
It was a great contact from very beginning with Islandsailing.gr.
A boat chartered was a Sun Odyssey 519 in great shape and had everything needed onboard and more.I can recommend the Islandsailing.gr and the boat we rented.
Thanks and see you on the next adventure
As always, everything was top notch!!!
Mike and Nikki on the Flotilla Lead Yacht were good 'hosts', diligent and helpful.
By far the most impressive was Yannis Theodoridis who looked after us extremely well over the two years of delays due to the pandemic. He never failed to respond promptly and was always helpful and able to assist with any information we required. Thank you, Yannis. We really appreciated your service.
Many thanks for your support, hope to see you again following summers
We had no problems with the yacht and excellent service from you and the base.
Just a brief not to express much thanks for the excellent arrangements you made for our sailing out of Rhodes.
The owner of the Lagoon 400 and his team were most efficient and thoughtful. The boat was in excellent condition.
Our skipper Christos and hostess Lorella were most experienced and professional. It was a pleasure to be on board with them
Christos, Joana and Leftieres are an excellent team/crew. They made us feel at home and at ease during our time on the water. Christos knows many people throughout the islands and when something was needed to be done or had, he was able to quickly make it all happen. This is one of the most memorable travel experiences our family has had the pleasure to take. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality!
Excellent holiday. Phenomenal service and guidance from Yannis!
We really enjoyed the trip and everyone was very helpful.
We had a great time thank you 🙏
Nicos has great experience, thank you so much for all of your help.
I wish to thank you for your helpful services.Everything was all right and the organization perfect. We sailed in excellent conditions in a very nice area.
Thank you again, Aexandre Vernier
Wonderful to work with Yannis. He is a professional at what he does, prompt to respond. A great asset to Island Sailing team. Thank you so much we had a great time in Greece
All perfect. Thank you
Islandsailing communication before the charter was great. Very clear and transparant, responses were as fast as lightning.
The team at Kos basde are exceptionally professional and friendly, extremely helpful. Best yacht base team I have had in 20 years of chartering.
Das war ein perfekter Urlaub und ich werde auf jeden Fall wieder bei Euch buchen! Liebe Gru?e Steffi
We had an outstanding time on our week of sailing.
The skipper and hostess exceeded our expectations and they knew just what to do, where to eat and places to stop for swimming and snorkeling.
Everyone had a great experience. Thank you
Thanks for your assistance, especially for the cooperation when changing the contract partner on short notice.
We loved our weeklong catamaran charter! Nikos was a great skipper. He did an excellent job of listening to our desires and creating an itinerary accordingly.
It was certainly helpful here that we were very flexible with our itinerary. He was also clearly a very experienced skipper which seemed to be very valuable in situations where we encountered strong winds, as happens in summer with the Meltemi.
Yannis was very responsive. I was initially a bit concerned about doing a bank transfer from abroad, but can attest that everything was legit.
thanks for your service
Base staff was also very good, they fixed a broken part very quickly.
The boat is old, but in good shape for its age. Sails and rigging had some issues but overall it was a great experience.
it was our first time sailing on a yacht - we just loved this holiday !!!
Thank you so so much. We will recommend you to our friends, and may return ourselves.
Everything was fine, very good boat and base people efficient and nice!!
Our overall satisfaction is great and thank you for your patience with us Yannis.
Base service was not so smooth because high season -lot of people and some time waiting-.
Hostess was great in any case so, please, recommend her -even if her skipper capacities are not brilliant-.
Thanks Yannis. Agree, we never felt unsecure on Chiquita. My personal opinion is that she might be more a private boat that a charter yacht.
Yannis was exceptionally helpful arranging everything- always very prompt and professional with information and responses. The captain Piotr was very talented and enjoyable. The biggest issue was the engine on the dinghy had quite a few issues.
The local team were really nice and professional. The boat was in great shape, and the skipper Xristos was amazing.
All services were perfect - from booking to final check-out! The boat was very well equipped. Everything was in perfect condition!
Thank’s for your work everything perfect
Yannis provided spectacular customer service throughout the entire process, including the cancellation and rebooking due to COVID.
Thank you, we had a great experience
Thanks all is well. Will be in touch next season!
Everything was ok, we had good weather, some wind and waves, the boat was fine, sailed very well, absolutely nothing to comment. All the crew was happy. Thank you for the charter, much appreciated
We had a wonderful holiday last week and everything was just perfect, with only just a problem - it was too short:).
Thank you for your support and let’s hope that we’ll need your help again, next year!
Very nice conditions, all was ok. Thank you
We had a great time and everything went smoothly
We had an amazing holiday. It was everything we hoped for and more. Our skipper and hostess made it even more amazing!
Andreas really has an outstanding personality. We learned a lot.
Thank you again for your constant reactivity and reassurance in these troubled times.
We had a outstanding experience with Island Sailing during booking and vacation. Easy to communicate with excellent reactivity, including during the covid lockdowns.
In particular, they went out of their way to find us a french speaking skipper at no extra cost. On top of that, he was experienced and cheerful, and guided us throughout the islands stops.
The boat was in excellent condition. The coffee pot was too small for out company but apart from that, the boat was in pristine condition and frugal in diesel.
I'd trust them again blindly.
Everything was fine, we had a great time
All communications from Island Sailing were outstanding. Charter base was not very helpful.
Our sailing week was very successful. Everything worked out very smoothly. I’m so grateful for your great support!
We were somewhat confused with our arrival at the base as there were a many people milling around trying to figure out the process for completing charter paperwork etc. A reception area with someone to inform people of the required processes would have been helpful and assist to organise people based on their arrival rather into an orderly waiting line than just having to push and shove with everyone else doing the same.
Overall the condition of the yacht and the services at the base were good but only after we had completed the process and then buy experience knew how things were done.
Thank you for your assistance with our holiday charter and we will definitely be in contact if / when we charter in Greece again.
A small thing we missed - was toiletpaper and soap. This is something other Companies put into the boat.
Borker Yannis at Islandsailing.gr and the charter Base in Mykonos were professional and friendly as always.
Manos were very professional and an absolute pleasure to deal when receiving and returning the Yacht.
The yacht was clean, well looked after, comprehensively equipped and a pleasure to sail for two weeks.
The small problem related to furling the main was only an issue on the last day and I probably would have found a solution if I had more time.
Yannis, you were very efficient in all the communication with good organisation and yacht recommendation and I am really pleased to have selected Island Sailing for our charter.
Overall we had a fantastic trip. Our skipper Kosta was outstanding and we would highly recommend him. He always put our safety first while also ensuring it was a highly enjoyable experience everywhere we went. His knowledge of the islands and the waters was evident and we had the utmost confidence in his decisions. Without doubt he was a huge factor in out trip being so enjoyable.
There were a few minor issues with the boat, however, due to the skill of the skipper, he was able to rectify most of them. Sticking cupboard doors were one issue he could not address as well as a cabin door that didn't have a stopper to secure it and therefore would not stay open.
A bigger, more sturdy dinghy would have been good given the size of the yacht.
Once again I'd like to reiterate that our trip was wonderful and we would not hesitate to recommend Island Sailing as a company and Kosta as a skipper
The team on the pier was excellent, buton the contrary the team at the office was helpful but slow and I was moving from one office to the other for different transaction.
We have used the same marina a couple of years ago they looked much organized in the office area.
Overall it was a great holiday as usual.
Thx a lot
Once again, thanks for the arrangements. Everything was fine.
Actually the boat itself was really in good condition and also the colleagues from the base were helpfull. A bit delayed but thats part of the high season game...
Local team was super friendly and very helpful
Thank you for organising our charter in Skiathos, we had a great time and Crates was a nice boat.
Thank you for your care and advice.We had 2 great sailing weeks. We were very content with the ship and your service.
We were all very pleased with the Lagoon 450 & our Cptain, Aritz Belatagi, who was excellent. The yacht was spacious, comfortable & a good sailer when the winds allowed. The Captain is very copmpetent, energetic & accommodating.
Thank you for helping us to arrange the charter.
An excellent experience without qualification.Very high level of attention, responsiveness, accuracy of information and service.The recommendation as to the hostess was impeccable - an absolute key to the success of our cruise.Ditto for the choice of the charter company. Thank-you Yannis!
Wonderful assistance at the base. Perfect boat. Perfect organisation as usual with you and your charter companies.
Thank you for everything!
We had a lovely time on board Daddy's Hobby.
The crew were very knowledgeable and provided excellent service, especially the chef.
Everything was very good. A few comments:
- dinghy leaked air on the port side
- the outboard engine needs tuning
Thank you very much foe all your work and assistance. Please extend also our thanks to the whole team of Afros Yacht Services (especially to Natalie) and to the Doc Master Yannis and his team.
Thank you again.
EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT AND THE SKIPPER GREAT!!
Thank you Giannis.
In a few words we could not have wished for a better experience. The vessel was presented in superb condition. Regarding Jason, our skipper, we all agree that his good humour, expertise and local knowledge was integral to the success and enjoyment of our charter. We will hopefully enjoy his company on future charters. Wishing you kind regards and a successful season.All the best
We had a really good time, thanks for your assistance and service
excellent service, very friendly, good experience, will book again
Yes, we had a great time in Kos and the charter was really successfully. The weather was good, the food was good, the wine was good…so
The owner of the yacht was very helpful, friendly and attentive to all of our needs.
He even drove us to the airport when our van driver got sick!
This was an amazing experience, from booking right through to the end. The service staff, in particular Yannis,Katrina and George went above and beyond.
I would highly recommend booking with Island sailing.
We were very happy with your service, while The boat was compared with the age in a pretty good condition.
I wood charter again with you and I wood charter again the sqame yacht.
Everything was very, very good!
Glad to cooperate with you!
Very nice boat!!
Thanks Yannis, we had a great week. The base was efficienmt and helpful and the nyacht went well. Everything was generally in good condition. The sails were a somewhat baggy but that is expected in a charter boat.
The bed sheets were a bit stained and old. Surprised not to have basics like washing up liquid, salt, tea towels but all available in the excellent marina shop.
Ready for another trip soon - maybe the Ionian Islands next time!
Thanks for all your help, Sarah
An All-round excellent service from the whole team.
Service at the marina could not be faulted, and yacht was well presented. The boat was starting to show signs of wear in places, but not unexpected given her age - it certainly didn't stop our sailing plans in any way. Nav equipment at helm and solar power were a very welcome feature. The dinghy was small for 4 people and resulted in all parties getting wet if there was the slightest of waves... a little annoying for the girls when going ashore for dinner! Outboard was excellent though and this is an area we most often have problems with when chartering.
We have just purchased our own yacht, so are unlikely to charter again soon, but we would recommend IslandSailing without hesitation to our friends.
A big thank you to all for an excellent week afloat!
It was a lovely trip depending on goof weather and a very good job by the chsrter agent and the base crew.
Everything was cared for.
Thanks from my crew and me
Yacht was very clean and well presented, the base staff were friendly helpful and professional, charter administration was made easy.Good yacht with excellent inventory but showing signs of a long season. We had a most enjoyable holiday and would recommend IslandSailing.gr .Thank you
Great holiday and for Saona 47 great catamaran: really fast and also really comfortable!
We would like to see if it’s possible to have it for 24/08-07/09 2019, Mykonos-Mykonos: could you check it?
We had an awesome sailing week. Everything was going well with the people in Skiathos and the boat was good, a little bit run down inside.
I definitely come back to you for some sailing next year.
Great crew this year! Nothing to complain about at all. Fantastic week!!!
The charter and vacations were great. We loved it.
The only "but" is that we could not make it to ciclades, because of the strong north wind.
For next year maybe we would directly departure from one of the ciclades (I wonder if this will be possible), so we guaratee that we get there.
And we would probably go for 2 weeks instead of just one.
The best: the skipper Alex. He is absolutely great, really skilled, and has a great patience with the kids. Also Nina as hostess was great. We would like to repeat with both of them for next year, if this is possible.
And we will consider monohull or catamaran.
All was perfect according to the contract
The charter was delightful. The yacht was of first-class quality, and the skipper Mr Dranovitsas was excellent.
My only comment - not a big deal - is that your website slightly misdescribes the yacht; it has a fully battened main with lazybag/lazyjacks, rather than in-mast furling, and no bow thruster. But these things were not a problem for me.
Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
Potato peeler and serving spoons would have been appreciated
Firstly, our skipper Yannis was absolutely fantastic, an excellent sailor and was always very attentive and caring man who made our charter one of the highlights of our life. He deserves a much higher rating.
Our charter contact Yannis from islandsailing was highly professional and carefully explained all the details of our charter. Our communications with Yannis was excellent and would definitely use his company for our next charter.
The catamaran was in excellent condition and was well suited for our traveling part of 8 people. We really enjoyed the variety of spaces to relax in and overall was of a high standard. There are a few minor notes relating to the lack of some basic items such as the lack of cloths pegs, tea towels, detergent and and toilet paper. The pillows were well below standard but in saying this our overall satisfaction level was very high.
Sailed in 7-17 July 2018
Awesome foursome from Australia
We had a great week sailing on SeaHorse
Very happy with the boat, very happy with the customer care.
The people at Lavrion are very focused and helpful.
The yacht is great, good condition. A bit stressful getting the outboard on to the dinghy, which we did often. But everything running great.
From my side I would like to express my gratitude to you and the owners of he yacht for excellent preparation of the boat and highest quality service. Evita and Issidores are taking care of this boat as of their child. Everything was shining and working on the boat from the begining. Beatifull sailing books and even Greek Icon on the boat. The bow, keel and ruder had small white crosses painted for blessing and safety. Once our mainsail got stuck in the mast and it was immediately addressed.
It was really an amazing experience. I have no doubt it was the best and most beatifully prepared boat I have ever sailed on.
They also added some batteries for more freedom as far as electricity requirements are concerned so we did not have to recharge the boat too often.
Once again thank you for excellent hollidays on the yacht IZZI.
One more successfull charter with islandsailing.
Thank you Yannis
Exellent service, excellent area, excellent skipper. Thank you
We loved our time on the boat. One of the bathrooms wasn˘t working and needed to be fixed so we were had a a day and a half without one bathroom. Only 1 mask and snorkel were on board. We were told there would be three. One was dropped off the 3rd day.
Our cook/host and skipper were amazing!
We would return again and explore new territory .
Thanks so much for your charter services. All went very well with our sail - except the wind could have picked up a bit. Oh well, you can't control mother nature. We were very pleased with the check in and check out process. Your co-workers were super - very friendly and professional.Thanks again
Our charter was really spectacular. We were blessed with good weather and calm seas. The Lagoon 45 which we chartered was a wonderful boat very clean and well maintained with everything in working order. The generator and water maker were a plus and in future I will only charter with these facilities as it saved us multiple trips to the filling dock. The owner of the yacht Mr Dimitrios was very welcoming although I could see he was a little concerned given that I am young. However we returned the boat back to him with absolutely no damage whatsoever and far cleaner and in better state than he likely usually sees. Our itinerary from start to finish was Athens, kythnos, Milos (polonia), Milos (Kleftico), poliegos, andiparos, Serifos and back to Athens.
We had such a good time we are already thinking about our next charter next summer. We are interested in the Balearic Islands do you have connections in this area?
We had a wonderful time and couldn't have asked for anything more from you.
The only complaints we had were completely unrelated to Island Sailing and had more to do with the infrastructure of the Greek ports (for example no electricity, no showers, no WiFi), which were not on par with what we experienced in Croatia two years ago.
Alex was a great skipper and was very flexible with changing plans and our needs.
The holiday was very enjoyable. The flotilla Leads Joanna & Fred were very good. Greg the owner was easy to deal with. Taxi airport pickups were excellent. Only slight annoyance was the waiting around at the Offices for the check-in. In all a very successful holiday. Thank you for your support. Fergal
Island Sailing was terrific, Service was seamless, Will definitely use them again - hopefully, next year ! - Michael
excellent sailing boat, excellent agency service. I recommend every cooperation with Island sailing
We had a wonderful trip and a wonderful experience booking with islandsailing.gr. Highly recommend this company and the skipper Nikos
First, I would like to thank you for the cooperation.
We returned safe from our sailing week with no unpleasent events.
The boat worked fine and we were very happy with her.
+ all in all a good yacht, in a good condition.
- Except: 1. a badly repaired broken cable of the anchor wintch unit.
- And 2. a non-smoothly turning Genua furler.
+ Nice Lay out with navigation-table, L-Pantry, separate shower, small bathplattform with outside-Step when closed, etc
- Equippement in general ok, but Pantry-Equippement was poor; p.e. we had to buy ourself a second Pan.
All very good !!!
Everything was ok.
Thank you for the support.
The next year we will go to Croatia in this period but I will try to reserve a boat in Paros in June ; I will contact you on time.
Yannis, the base staff and certainly the skipper were great !!!
Nikos our skipper was excellent and fantastic at accomodating everyones needs.
His level of experience was obvious from the very beginning and we would definateley use him again next time.
The boat was very well equiped and well suited to our family.
Yannis was great to deal with in the initial booking period and offered much help and assistance. Excellent communications and very accomodationg to our many questions.
This was our first overseas sailing adventure and due the exceptional service we are now hooked and look forward to the next one.
Excellent experience, I will recommend your services and also of Afros.
Some very small comments:
- the Comfort battery was draining to quickly, this was mentioned to the base
- would be nice have some (maybe elastic) short lines to tie up the lazy bag after raising the main sail
- would be nice to have some simple written instructions how to switch between the 2 water tanks (it was explained by base personnel, but very quickly...) and also the use of the auxiliary battery
But as I said, great experience!
Having wifi would be good, but the boat was organised well and very enjoyable.
The skipper Konstantinos was outstanding! I could not have had a better one. He was perfect. He was also very patient.
All my questions were answered correctly and I got all information I needed.
Very nice holiday.
I appreciate all the efforts trying to accommodate our requests.
I loved that boat. Great experience. I look forward to doing it again soon. thanks!
Reason for giving a 7 on equipmemnt of the yacht above: The yacht had double rudders which may be fine for racing, but not so suitable for cruising. No directional control at near zero forward speed since no propeller flow available for the rudder. This makes a couple of maneuvers difficult. The use of thruster offsets this in some situations.
Double rudder will also catch easier on the neighbouring anchor chain when berthing side by side.
Outboard not rated since it was not on board on our request.
Thanks for a great trip
Assistance of Yannis excellent. Yacht Emelia and skipper Nikos were fantastic. Thank you for everything
I only want to add that the skipper (Evanggelos) and the 2 hostesses (Eva and Katerina) were absolutely amazing. I really think our trip was a success because of them. The captain was very young but impressively mature and responsible, he took us to some amazing places and understood perfectly what we wanted to do and what we were looking for. Always very welcoming and available if we wanted to talk to him, but allso knew how to keep a distance.Eva amd Katerina were also amazing, always smiling and willing to make our trip unbelievable, good cooks and great great attitute. All of our team was really happy with the crew, we were even jocking we wanted to take them back to Mexico with us! Yannis is a great organiser, the yacht was everything that was promised, always responded in very short time with accurate answers and was very willing to make our trip run perfectly. I really do not have anything to complain about and I really consider myself a complicated person to satisfy. We will for sure book again with you and ask for the same crew and maybe yacht !!
The first time to sail with the Lagoon 400 S2 and I have to say it's a really performing model with all sea and wind conditions. Catamaran generally in perfect condition. Really appreciated the dinghy with the 5 HP engine could accommodate all 9 of us in a single shot. Thanks to Yannis, as usual always "online" for any tips you may need sailing the Cyclades
All was excellent. The only reason I flagged 9 on the equipment of the yacht was because there were a couple of faulty devices that were causing the electricity to be shorted, but other than that it was all fantastic.
Another excellent service and an excelllent yacht. See next year Yannis
Yannis, thank you for your help - you were fantastic to deal with. We had a great holiday in Greece. Thank you
Everything went very well. I have put an 8 on the yacht equipment as it was missing a radio at the helm (the only radio available was inside by the charter table), which made it difficult for the skipper to communicate with the flotilla leaderwhen we were arriving at ports.
Hello Yannis, Everything was great. We will recommend the company to everyone. All the best
I had a great experience with Yannis and Islandsailing.gr.
Yannis was always reachable and quick to respond to any questions that arose.
Our boat was in great shape for a 4 year old charter boat and had very few signs of wear and tear. Obviously the boat is well maintained in the off season, and thouroughly inspected between charters.
I loved the team, liked the boat, and will see you all again in the future!
Excellent service, excellent yacht, excellent area to sail. Thank you
Excelent customer service from initial inquiry to drop off the yacht. Lucky enough to have a brabd new Fountaine Pajot catamaran. Very comfortable and perfect for islandsailing. Thank you Yannis for your recommendation. Will definitely recommend Islandsailing.GR
Excellent service from Yannis. Skipper Manuel did Islandsailimnggreat job and saw awesome places. Thanks
Had all kinds of winds. Excellent area to visit.
Everything was perfect, as usual with you
