We have two boats, 49' and 55' - both have 4 double cabins. Join us as an individual, couple, or rent the whole boat! We include breakfasts, lunches and drinks (inc complimentary Happy Hour drinks); skipper, all boat expenses.

Please note, the prices here are PER PERSON, on a shareboat trip. If you have your own group of people, our pricing is different (depending on how many people, usually less than our shareboat rates). Just drop us a line and ask!

The space

We've been sailing in the Dodecanese islands and Turkey for over 20 yrs now. Come join us on our floating home! We put together groups of adventurous travellers and take our guests to explore the islands and meet our wonderful local friends - often little places that are only accessible by small boat. You don't need to be an experienced sailor to join us; just pack a sense of fun and adventure!

*** Please note: our price of 160 eur is per person/day; sorry, we don't have a better way to display that in the airbnb system pricing. This includes all boat expenses (fuel, mooring, cleaning, local taxes); it also includes provisioning for breakfasts, lunches and drinks on board. And of course, one (or both) of us as skipper! ****

The price here is significantly reduced from our regular (website) rates - we're promoting a few trips in particular that we'd like to add some more adventurous souls!

Our 6 day trips start on Sun am, end Sat am. Our Greece-and-Turkey trips are 10-13 days. You can join us as a single, couple; or bring your own group of friends, and we'll customise a trip for you. Max 8 guests per boat. If you're travelling solo, it's not a problem; we can match you up with a (same sex) bunkmate. We get a lot of solo guests joining us, as it's such a great way to have an instant "family" of friends to explore with.

Yes, it's a bit of an unusual listing ! But our boat being a floating home, why not?? We've been hosting groups of people onboard for many years in Greece and Turkey. It's such a great way to meet travellers from all over the world; living on a sailboat creates fun social dynamics!

We provide provisions for breakfasts and lunches on board; it's up to everyone to pitch in and help make meals. Dinners are not included; we eat ashore in little local tavernas. We even include open bar for Happy Hour!

You don't need to be an experienced sailor to join us; we're happy to show any newbies the ropes. Do be aware that sailboats aren't cruise ships; space is limited, and you need to be the sort of sociable person who loves to be part of a group. For total newbies; Sailing is like Camping on The Water. If that concept appeals to - you'll be on the right boat.

Guest access

Each cabin has it's own bathroom (toilet and shower). These are small, sailboat-sized rooms, don't expect the Hilton. There is a shared galley (kitchen) area, fridges, hot water, etc. (It might be "camping on the water"..... but it's pretty luxurious camping : >)

Interaction with guests

100%. We'll be living on board with you !


House Rules

As with every communal living setup, guests need to be respectful of everyone else's space and sensibilities. Keeping the noise down at night, helping out on the boat (whether it's dishes or fenders), being tidy in shared areas - it's a team spirit, and we expect all our guests to pitch in.

Precise and helpful information before arrival. Warm welcome. Sailing boat clean and comfortable (still a sailing boat). Sailing, relaxing and swimming in one of the best places I’ve ever seen. A special thank to our skipper Ray, pleasant, helpful, engaging and careful. Filippo

Everything was as described, and we had a great week. We'd recommend a sailing vacation with Diane and Ray to anyone looking for a relaxed experience of Greek Islands. Thanks for everything!

My partner and I run a small yacht charter business, and this is our home base in Phuket - the gorgeous, off-the-tourist-tracks Ao Yon. We moor our boat here during the dry season, going out for a week or two at a time to take our guests around the islands. We're early/late 50s…
