Sail Ionian

Charter Company , Lefkas, Ionian Islands, Greece


Sail Ionian is a small, friendly, family owned and run yacht charter company based on the island of Lefkas in Greece, ideally located for sailing holidays exploring the Southern and Northern Ionian.

We specialise in Bareboat Yacht Charter, Assisted Sailing and RYA Sailing Courses. For the less experienced sailors, we are pleased to skipper your yacht for part or all of your sailing holiday whilst you gain confidence.

Our aim is to provide the highest standard of sailing holiday possible to all of our clients, both new and returning. This is achieved by maintaining constant high levels of yacht maintenance, cleaning and staff training. All our charter yachts have completed no more than four seasons of charter, with NEW yachts being added each year. All yachts from 36 foot upwards are teak decked and fully equiped. In the unlikely event of you needing support, backup is provided by a large rib which can reach anywhere in the Southern Ionion in a short space of time.

Sail Ionian’s Assisted Sailing is one of the most popular options for less experienced or nervous sailors who want to enjoy the delights of the Ionian Islands without the need to “check in” and “check out” with a group of other charter yachts every day. The skipper is with you on an open ended basis and leaves the boat each evening after ensuring you are moored safely in a different port each night.

The assisted route is also available to those who have never sailed before, with one of our smaller yachts. We offer a unique service and have had a great deal of success in training people to sail in a short space of time, without sacrificing any safety aspects.

Bareboat Yacht Charter is available for both experienced sailors and newly qualified. We provide a level of support to suit experience, which includes our free stern too mooring clinic on a monday morning. This tends to be popular with many guests, as a refresher or for those new to the area, to practice in friendly company and pick up any tricks of the trade.

For those looking for a formal qualification, our RYA centre provides Start Yachting, Competent Crew, Day Skipper (non tidal) and Coastal Skipper (non tidal) RYA sailing courses for both individuals, couples, families and groups of friends. The skipper will be on board for the 5 day course, leaving you the rest of the yacht charter to sail yourselves! If you are looking for a day or two in a rib we also run RYA Level 1 and 2 powerboat training.

If new to sailing or just looking for a relaxing stress free holiday, why not have a fully skippered week, where you can do as much or as little sailing as you like. Our Bavaria 46’s provide generous accommodation for up to 6 guests and a cabin for a skipper.

From the time you make a booking, right through to the time you leave at the end of your fantastic yacht charter holiday in Greece, you will be in the capable hands of Neil, Di, Katie and Chris who will all strive to meet your every need in a relaxed and friendly manner. The people you talk to are the people who will also welcome you in Greece, instruct and help in any way they can.

Sail Ionian is an RYA training centre offering expert tuition for all levels of experience. Our sea school aims to provide expert, informal, relaxed, friendly, and safe instruction in a safe and fun sailing environment.

Sail Ionian specialises in the Start Yachting, Competent Crew, Non Tidal Day Skipper and Non Tidal Coastal Skipper Sailing Courses in Greece for all abilities and ages. We welcome family sailing courses, couples, groups of friends and individual sailing, and we encourage everyone on board to have a go. If you and your crew would like to be qualified, and are mixed abilities, we are happy to teach different sailing courses on the same yacht.

Our courses are personalised to meet the needs and expectations of you and your crew. With a maximum of four per course, this gives time for individual tuition and attention to all on board. A relaxed and informal approach from experienced instructors, a day to practice and build confidence at the end of the course and with an ideal area to learn both sailing and boat handling, we aim to provide a unique, valuable and fun learning experience.

Sail Ionian is now also offering Distance Sailing opportunities for those wishing to sail further afield with the support from one of our instructors. Please enquire for more details.
