Personally and professionally we are a Greek-German team both speaking fluently English, German and Greek. Since we met in 2003 we have always loved to travel, discover different places and meet new people. It was several years ago, on a longer trip in Southeast Asia, that we first sailed together. And we got hooked…
Having the luck of living in Greece, one of the best sailing regions in the world, we started sailing as a dedicated hobby, which quickly turned into a new way of life: For years we took every opportunity to be on board. During our summer holidays and shorter weekend getaways, we could explore, with friends or alone, nearly every corner of the Greek islands by skippering chartered yachts. This way of travelling became for us the most creative and natural way to combine our adventurous attitude with a lifelong love for the sea.
In 2013, we have decided to turn our hobby into a profession. We quitted our daytime jobs as teachers (mathematics and German language) and bought our sail boat Donousa.
Since then, we invite people from all over the world on board of Donousa to experience themselves this unique, individual way to visit Greece and explore its magnificent islands.

Why sail with us

Because you will charter our privately owned sailing yacht

You can be sure everything on board is in perfect working condition, since we are the owners of Donousa as well as your crew. Every year, we invest a respectable amount of time and money to keep our yacht in top shape. We do most of the maintenance works on our own and supervise closely repairs or other works that are beyond our expertise. That way we can guarantee for your safety and convenience during our trips, so you spend a hassle-free vacation.

Because it’s a value for money choice

We do offer something quite unique in Greece, as a private boat charter with skipper and hostess/ chef is normally a luxury, people pay for when chartering a mega yacht. We make this luxury affordable! On top of it two meals a day, drinking water, fuel, mooring fees, all equipment like SUP, cooking gas, WiFi connection, linen and towels and end cleaning are included in the price. There are absolutely no hidden charges and no bad surprises will await you by the end of your cruise. And as you book directly with us, you charter the boat without any third party or agency commissions.

Because we are customer-oriented and flexible to your wishes

We understand how precious your vacation time is. Our intention is to offer you something more than just a skippered trip. Being a small, owner-run company allows us to treat each guest individually. Starting with your first email you will communicate directly with us who will later accompany you as your crew on your private trip. That way we have already learned something about your ideas, special wishes and maybe worries.
For day trips and mini cruises we have designed some itineraries, which are presented in form of maps and detailed programs. Use them for inspiration but also note that we can customize them in many ways, as everything can be adapted to your exact needs and special wishes: destinations, number of days spend on board and optional activities.
For week cruises only, at a logical extra cost, we offer the possibiliy to embark and /or disembark at the port of Lavrio, which would save you a respectable amount of time if you wish to sail the Cyclades.
Upon request we can also organize one way trips.
Don’t hesitate to send us an e-mail. Make your own suggestions, let us know your preferences and your availability in time. You will receive an
answer in less than a day. Together we can work out the individual itinerary that will fulfil your personal dream holidays.

And finally, because we love what we do and there is no greater pleasure than sharing your passion!

See you on board!
