Why Charter a Yacht with Globe Merchant?
Visit the Quick
Guide to Chartering in Greece..
When you work with Globe Merchant you will have
a valuable contact in the US(Chapel Hill NC) who can
help you plan your charter and will be accessible to
answer any questions you may have. I have lived in Greece
for 7 years, travel back and forth on a regular basis
and have first hand experience and suggestions that
will help you make the most of your trip to Greece.
My expertise is not only in the charter business, but
I am a sailor who has built my own 34-foot cutter(BlueWinds)
which I have sailed extensively, including about 4000
miles down the Eastern US and through The Abacos in
The Northern Bahamas where I lived for 7 years. I can
also advise you on a land itinerary, places to visit
and the most efficient way of planning your trip.
There are four options that we offer:1)Crewed/Bareboat
Yacht Charters(Charter a whole yacht(29-60+ foot
sailing yachts and up to 200+ feet motoryachts) for
your group with or without a skipperand/or crew); 2)Cabin
Cruises which is when you rent a cabin in on
a larger vessel(5-40+ cabins on board). This option
offers 7, 10 or 14 day itineraries that take you to
a series of islands, allowing you to cover a lot of
ground in a short period of time; 3)Charter
by Owner where you will have the oportunity to sail
with the Skipper/Owner of the Yacht who knows the cruising
grounds as well as his yacht(Think of it as a 24-hour
a day personal guide who is an expert on sailing in
Greece). And finally; 4)Flotillas(Greece,
for people with limited sailing experience who want
to sail with a group of yachts. You will have your own
yacht, but there will be a "flotilla leader"
sailing on one of the yachts who will prepare you for
the day's sailing and be there should you need their
expertise or advise.
