The MG Yachts Team
Every island, every village has a strong local character. Distances between islands are very short, so even for a brief cruise you can experience the excitement of constant change. Greece is a land of striking contrasts and they are reflected in the cruising area.
Brilliantly sunny, hot and dry April to October, but refreshed by winds which are moderate to strong. The meltemi, the north wind often blowing hard in midsummer, is not only a force to be handled carefully, with proper scheduling and right anchoring, but is also a blessing, because it cools the air and gives the Aegean stunning clarity and intensity.
Myth and history are always alive in Greece in the minds of people and in the landscape. Wherever you cruise, you will find legendary sites, ancient monuments, museums or towns worth visiting. This part of the world has been settled from earliest times onwards and the remains of the past civilizations are visible often in the most spectacular spots near the sea.
The key is taste and freshness. Eating Greek style meals is above all sampling a variety of small dishes (mezes) . It is a cuisine based on fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood and meat, prepared with fresh herbs and spices. One of the great joys of your cruise will be lingering over drinks and arrays of mezes or sometimes visiting local markets and vineyards where you can discover wonderful regional wines.
Perhaps the greatest talent of the Greeks is living well, taking and giving pleasure at the slightest pretext. Enjoying everything, whether it is having a philosophical discussion over drinking ouzo at a seaside café, making a fiesta out of the simplest meal, or watching the sunrise after of dancing to the music.
Here you will find the answers to the questions that were most frequently asked by our clients, through the years of our existence in the yachting field.
If, however, you need any further specifications about our company or about yachting holidays in general, feel free to contact us at: We are updating the comments of our clients every season . Please note that we do not include any contact information. These are available only upon request and according to the instructions of the person involed.
According to the Greek sailing laws you need at least one official sailing license in order to take over a bare boat. As a sailing license, the port police recognizes any official paper from a sailing school, a yacht club or any relative organization, that has tested and can verify your ability to handle a sailing yacht. If your certificate, is issued by a country that is not a member of the European Union, it must be accompanied by a translation in Greek or English.
If you do not have such a qualification paper, a professional skipper will be provided to you to insure your safety and well being, with a standard fee per day. MG Yachts has the right as by the official charter contract, to ask you to prove your sailing abilities and knowledge by making a small round trip with one of our representatives on board. This test event is considered part of the charter period.
Feel free to contact us for any further specifications you may need.
The price that you will pay for the charter is officially stated on your contract, which is approved by the Hellenic Ministry of Merchant Marine. No extra charges will arise during your charter. The charterer of a MG yacht has to pay only for fuel, water and gas. If you order of any additional extras, you will formerly be informed of their price, which will be stated also in the contact.
Please visit the terms and conditions for further information.
In the aforesaid contract you will see that you have to leave a deposit that varies according to the size of the yacht. This insures that you are responsible only for that amount of money for any loss or damage may be caused. Every yacht is insured against any damage that exceeds that amount.
