Plenty of time during the day to swim, snorkel, enjoy the Greek sun and the crystal clear water anchored in selected bays. The evenings will find us in picturesque villages, exploring ashore, with various optional activities. Each day ends with a delicious meal based on the recognised Greek cuisine.
Unparalleled comfort on a large and carefully maintained 56ft sailing yacht. The layout offers maximum privacy featuring 5 cabins for guests, each with its own WC.
George, your greek skipper and local guide is big part of the success of this trip. Positive, friendly, knowledgable, with a very personal and professional approach!
Welcome to Syros right at the heart of Cyclades. We are equally excited and looking forward to spending an unforgeable sailing week together around the hidden gems of the Greek islands.
Arriving at the beautiful Finikas Marina where our trip starts, you can drop your luggage at the boat and enjoy a splash in the nearby crystal clear water or a tasteful lunch right in front of the marina, awaiting the check-in time, which is at 13:30. Everyone is on board and after our 30min briefing we sail out to Serifos island.
Our first swim stop takes place in the beautiful beach of Psili Ammos following an anchorage at an Livadi bay. We enjoy the local cuisine for our sea front dinner, reachable by dinghy.
Good morning after the optional walk at the main Serifos village we and a tasteful seafront lunch we are ready to go. Next destination is Antiparos island.
A perfectly sheltered anchorage offers crystal clear water and the local cuisine for our sea front dinner, reachable by dinghy.
Taking advantage of the morning wind we sail to Iraklia island. A population of approximately 80 people during the winter, kept this little paradise off the beaten tack of mainstream tourism. Enjoy a really picturesque place. Relaxing on the beach, having drinks with view to the boat, walking at the top of the hill for the sunset. The team will gather for an unforgettable dinner in a family tavern, experiencing the Greek hospitality and approachability.
Koufonisi is our next destination, just a few nautical miles away for our morning relaxing sail. Grab your towel and explore the simply stunning island. Walking north on the coastline you experience the one of a kind magic beaches, you take a dip in natural lagoon made of rocks, try the local snacks at Pori beach at the very north of the island. Enjoy this well-deserved blessed piece of land.
Early start to Naxos, the largest -in surface- island of the Cyclades. An endless sandy beach on the west side of the island and the sea front picturesque main village. No doubt you could literally spend days and days to explore. Take a glimpse to the Greek history walking up the white washed alleys, experience history, art, different tastes of local goodies, discover inspired gifts for your beloved ones back home. Rent bike and reach the nearby beaches, let your skipper organise windsurfing lessons for you or a half day road trip to the inland villages. After a whole day exploring we gather all for our dinner, sharing the fun, the thoughts and the highlights.
Off we go to nearby Paros. Enjoy the sandy beaches of the island. You can optionally experience water sports or just enjoy the Greek sun on the beach or on deck. A few hours later, sailing to Ermoupoli the capital of Cyclades.
Ermoupoli with its 19th-century architecture, is always full of life. Explore the pedestrianized streets and some of the finest tastes in Cyclades. You can optionally visit Ano Hora, the old town on the top of the hill. Rejoin your boat and skipper at Finikas later in the evening for a drink or ice cream at the marina of Finikas.
Good morning! Explore, enjoy the morning splash, hiking options of the Syros west coast. It is up to your preference. Make the maximum out of your day until time to say goodbye. Sharing and sailing a full week in all those new fascinating places created new friends and triggered lifetime unforgettable memories.
At 15:00 we do our checkout at Marina of Finikas at Syros island
We can optionally organise for you a private sea transfer to Athens (2hrs) or any other island with our in-house all-weather motor boat.

Ocean Star 56
Welcome to my Ocean Star 56, a true sailing boat. Not made to stay in the ports but to be out there and take you to your next island, in full comfort and with an unparalleled seakeeping. The secret is based on the rigid construction of high displacement, the forgiving hull design and generous sailplan. A real mile-eater with the power of the wind.
My Ocean Star 56 features full teak deck which delivers a fantastic feeling under your feet. Then comes your private bow sundeck and an aft swim platform for easy access to the water. Under the rich shade of the bimini, a very spacious cockpit which includes a big table for your seafront meals.
PRIVACY & VERSATILITY
5Cabins / 5 WCs layout + crew amenities
It is about you and making the most out of your sailing holidays! And in order to feel so you need to feel home, to sleep well and to combine private with social time. My beautiful yacht offers all that, having one of the most versatile and comfortable layout for charter yachts of this size.
The versatility between double beds and bunk beds in the five passenger cabins, the separate WC for each cabin, the separate skipper's cabin/wc, the very wide saloon and galley area and the well ventilated, sunny interior is hard to match on any other yacht out there of less than 65ft
