GREEK ISLANDS CATAMARAN SAILING TRIP

Pahi 53 catamaran

Live a genuine sailing experience on our adventure catamaran without having to assemble a party for chartering a whole boat, discover the Greek islands without the crowds and meet new people while retaining your privacy thanks to your independently accessed cabin and private bathroom. On board our Pahi catamaran your captain will let you get the best of the Cyclades islands: spectacular sunsets, charming hidden villages, delicious Greek cuisine, golden hued beaches, starlit nights in secluded coves, vibrant nightlife.
We are based in Paros, ideally located in the heart of the Cyclades islands.

THE CATAMARAN

Authentically related to the great Polynesian double canoes plying the Pacific Ocean since milleniae, our custom built Pahi 53 catamaran comes very well equiped and is perfectly tailored to cruise the greek islands. The amount of available and usable deck space is clear under sail -with the obvious advantage of not heeling like a monohull- and there is plenty of room to relax and enjoy the sailing.
Each of the four comfortable double cabins is separatly accessed and has a private bathroom.
Thanks to the 15ft wide net swimming platform, getting in and out of the water has never been so easy!
 
Maximum 8 guests + the skipper
   

LIFE ON BOARD

No sailing experience is required. While enjoying sea and sun, you are involved in all tasks of everyday life at sea, up to handling the yacht itself if you so wish. Some hoist, lower or flake the sails (daily workout!), others steer (if they wish, since we have autopilots) shop or cook. Chores are equally shared among everyone (dish washing, sorting the galley). Like everything else onboard, appropriateness is the rule!
The day starts with breakfast and some grocery shopping prior taking off. We sail 2 to 4 hours stopping where possible for a swim (we carry snorkeling gear) and for a light lunch. We arrive at our daily destination around 15:00, leaving plenty of time for relaxing or exploring.
   

WHO DOES COME ON
 Archipel's TRIPS?

Couples, small groups of friends, families, single travellers. We're usually able to make enough personal contact with each of our guests to have a clear picture of how to match them with a team they'll find compatible. Because of the vacation mode, style and cost, all our customers are reasonnably fit, they enjoy open air activities, understand the meaning of propriety on board a sailing yacht and finally end up having a lot in common! Furthermore the fact that they embark in such a shared boat vacation more than implies they are willing to be flexible (within reason) and have the greatest fun. We have been involved in this kind of cruises for over 10 years now, some of our guests became friends for life while actually few people got married!
   

THE KITTY

Our cabin charters run a common kitty. Payable upon boarding, it covers all shared expenses such as breakfasts and lunches onboard, dinners ashore, water, fuel, port dues, skipper's meals..
 
The skipper acts as the bookkeeper keeping all receipts etc. It works well and everyone is always happy with it.
The only 'extra' money you will spend is really only on souvenirs and any drinks when sightseeing away from the group.

  • Is there a sound system?
  • The Pahi 53 catamaran 'Astarte' is equipped with a two waterproof outdoors 40W speaker system powered by radio/DVD player with auxiliary jack for a headphone plug.

     
  • Do we have a say in the itinerary?
  • An sailing itinerary in the Greek islands is always a compromise between sightseing wishes, life-style, weather constraints and how much sailing you wish to do. The ideal strategy for a week's sailing tour is to reach the most distant point on the third day. On first day, together with your captain with the week's windforecast in hand, you will finalize the itinerary.

     
  • Is the yacht equipped with airconditioning?
  • There is no need for Air conditioninging as there is almost everyday in summer a cool notherly breeze in the Cyclades islands and the Pahi insulation is excellent. For the rare hot days, each cabin is equiped with a fan.
