Curse of the Double Bunk
S/Y CARAYA II
I am Stefan Ritscher, and hope to welcome you soon on
a cruise on our magnificent 'CARAYA II'.
For already 10 years I stay in Greece, constantly being
busy with many of Charter-companies all over the Greek
yachts, delivering them from one port to the other, and
managing yacht bases in Mykonos, Lavrion and Kalamata.
I was born in Hamburg/Germany in 1965, where I was taught
sailing by my father from earliest childhood on, on the
mighty river 'Elbe' and the Northsea.
After educating as a mechanical engineer I set out to
the world repairing systems on cargo ships. Finally I
opened my ownYacht-hydraulic company in Germany with which
I ventured out to Greece in 1994, since this is the area

activity, and any spare minute was spent into it.
At arrival in Greece plans changed, and my hobby became
business. I collected all experiences, spent winters bringing
yachts several times over the Atlantic Ocean to charter
in the Caribbean and Cape Verde islands, from Cyprus to
Italy and Spain, but finally got settled in Lavrion/Attica.
In 1994 I met my lovely Greek wife Fotini, whom I married
in 2002, and we just got a little boy in the summer 2003!
She is Archaeologist, with an overwhelming spirit. Since
my desire is to offer individual cruises on our yacht,
with this exclusive touch in it to create memorable holidays
and excursions, we work perfectly together to create absolutely
During all this years I learned what most charterers desire,
and no company offers. We are permanently after making
our guests feel welcome and warm, -even on our winter
We will show you the Greek islands and most magnificent
spots on the mainland from a very different angle, and
are always keen on showing you around the beauties off
the beaten track.
Whenever I am not sailing or am busy improving our programs,
I try to be a good father and husband, and enjoy living
the Greek culture.
