Many of our students have asked us to help them find a charter yacht for them to use, once they passed thier Skippers exam. With so many 'Bare Boat' charter companies available it is difficult to recommend any one company. It is also difficult to choose any one model of yacht.
The average sized yacht is around 40 ft and offers 2-3 sleeping cabins, from there your choices are pretty much endless.
We have choosen Jeanneau Yachts as our teaching yachts becasue of thier excellent construction and modern yacht design. They have a high attention to detail on interior construction and excellent deck layouts that make sailing easy and safe.
We can offer our students a 40ft Jeanneau Sun Fizz. The yacht has a 3 cabin layout, with 2 heads. The deck layout is traditional, with wheel steering, and a fully battened mainsail.
"Eleni" was built in 1992 and was the last of her series, she has been in private use for all her life and so is well maintained. The yacht has a 55hp Perkins engine, that offers good auxillary power, especailly when the wind dies off here in the Greek islands.
The school offers 'Elenei' on a daily/weekly charter option... 300 EURO a day...The rate does not include fuel, taxes, yacht expenses.
