Crewed Yacht Charters in Greece

Why choose a yachting holiday on a crewed sailing yacht?

  • to enjoy the quality of a 5* hotel, without spending your holiday in just one place
  • to have the mobility of a cruise ship, but visit the small islands off the beaten track
  • to swim and snorkel at uninhabited remote creeks with the most beautiful waters
  • to be on a different island every day
  • no need for sailing experience to enjoy the magical world of sailing
  • to receive a very personal service

We offer luxury all-inclusive cruises on our 2 very comfortable fully air-conditioned sailing yachts at the beautiful islands of Greece! For most of our guests this is the holiday of a lifetime!

Our cruises in brief:

  • Every morning swim and snorkel at the most beautiful uninhabited creeks
  • Every afternoon enjoy a pleasant sail to the next island
  • Every evening/night spent at a different port to explore the islands
  • As our cruises are addressed to non-sailors, the cruising areas have been chosen to offer pleasant sailing rather than difficult conditions
  • You are welcome to participate in the sailing and experience steering a large yacht

Our service in brief:

  • You can book just one cabin or the whole yacht
  • All cabins are comfortable, ensuite with a toilet/shower and fully air-conditioned
  • Our breakfasts and lunches are delicious, all with local fresh produce
  • Your experienced and friendly crew of two (captain and chef) will look after you during the day and tell you all about the best places to visit, restaurants and bars during your evening visits to the islands
  • Absolutely all cruise expenses are included in the price, except dinners which you can have at one of the local tavernas, adding variety and cultural interest to your cruise

About Us

We are a couple (Thanos and Alicia) with a great love for the sea, the peaceful easy-going life of the islands and we really enjoy sharing this world with you. We started Anko Yachting with one yacht back in 2004, buying our second yacht in 2010 and our large catamaran Nicolas in 2020.

We operate with our own yachts providing a personalized service to our guests and take great care of all the little details that make a big difference to your holiday. Our aim is to provide a relaxed and easy-going holiday for you, where you will feel at home onboard our yachts, taste some of Alicia's delicious homemade dishes and experience the culture and beauty of the places we visit.

Guest Reviews

A group of fine, fun loving Canadians set sail from Lefkas aboard this immaculate boat - The Velos. Over the course of the week we lived like Greek tycoons thanks to our incredible hosts. We learned to love the Greek cuisine (thank you Alicia), the sport of sailing (thank you Thanos), and the charm of a well travelled, mature young lady (thatโ€™s you, Darina!).

We loved the ice cream of Kastos, the music in Fiscardo and the bay on Meganisi. We tore it up on the Velos dance floor too!!!

Efharisto - best vacation ever. YAMAS!!! x x x

Thank you for a wonderful 30th anniversary vacation. It was our first trip to Greece and could not have been a better introduction to your beautiful country and culture. We felt like part of the Velos family while we were on board. We hope to come back again and continue to explore with you.

See you soon!

Thank you Thanos and Alicja!

What an awesome team with Darina and the cute little Nicolas!! What a great week on your beautiful yacht in a magnificent part of the world. Your cooking was the highlight โ€“ canโ€™t believe what you can whip up in that little kitchen and give us a feel for Greek food.

How you bring together people from all parts of the world and make us feel so welcome and sharing your local knowledge is a real credit and success. There were so many highlights on the trip, the islands, the swimming, the sailing, the food and the happy hour. We enjoyed every moment on the holiday!

Thank you!!

Dear Thanos, Alicia and Nicolas,

You have made me fall in love with Greece. I was here 3 years ago and was not enamored with our trip. If I were to look up hospitality in the dictionary, it would have your names listed there!

Thanos, you gave us each an opportunity to enjoy what we most love about the sea. Alicia, your meals are amazing. So impressed! Nicolas, you shared your smiles and coos and gave 4 grandmas an experience of a lifetime.

Thank you all!
