While Greece yacht charters are extremely popular in early summer, more and more enthusiasts have discovered the advantage of sailing in October.  The waters are still warm and the throngs of tourists have headed home. Participating in this late season regatta is the perfect opportunity to experience the ultimate Greece bareboat charter – a holiday filled with sailing, racing, and socializing with boaters from around the world.

Even if you have no or limited sailing experience, you can still participate in the regatta, as many of the yachts have open spaces for novices, where experienced skippers will be at the helm. The cost to join an open space on one of the skippered bareboat catamarans is just € 550 per person based on double occupancy.

If you rent your own bareboat catamaran, the entrance fee per boat is Euro € 480.

Over 15 catamarans have entered the 2011 regatta. Available yachts include a 620, 48, 47, Bahia 46, 450, 40, and an 38.

Each year, the managers of the largest bareboat charter fleets review their prior year’s reservations to determine where to position their inventory of yachts for the coming high season.

The correct distribution of charter sail boats at the various bases can mean the difference of a successful or a ho-hum charter season.

No where is this distribution of monohulls and catamarans used in sail boat charters more critical than in .  With hundreds of islands, the number of bases in stands at nearly 50, and anticipating which bases will be busiest is a challenge.

offer deep discounts for bareboaters

To facilitate the distribution of dozens of yachts, the fleet managers turn to the retail charter market. Bareboat clients are enticed with deep discounts, from approximately 30% to over 50%, to reserve one-way, off-peak season delivery charters.

The arrangement is a win-win for all parties:  the fleet managers get their boats delivered to various bases, and the charter customers get to enjoy Greek for a fraction of the summer season rates.
