Beneteau 50 cabin charter cruise

Live a genuine sailing experience on our large Beneteau without having to assemble a party for chartering a whole sailboat, discover the Greek islands without the crowds and meet new people while retaining your privacy thanks to your independently accessed cabin and private bathroom. Your skipper will let you get the best of the Cyclades islands: charming hidden villages, spectacular sunsets, delicious Greek cuisine, golden hued beaches, starlit nights in secluded coves, vibrant nightlife.

THE YACHT

Archipel is here to meet the growing demand for cabin charters starting from Paros. Since cruising around the Greek islands have particular requirements, we have equipped her like our best seller the Pahi 53: autonomous fresh water and AC power production, freeing her from stopovers in congested ports and offering her guests more heavenly anchorages! She boasts four double cabins bathrooms with private bathrooms. Her permanent skipper and the painstaking maintenance at the pits stops between charters at our base warrant you a perfectly maintained boat and a hassle free Greek sailing holiday.
 
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.

  • Why a watermaker?
  • A watermaker means that unless you want it you do not have to be at the dock in order to refill the water tanks. You gain autonomy and your can enjoy more often deserted coves and preserved remote islands.
     
  • 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 boat equiped with 220v AC?
  • You will find onboard 220v AC plugs running on a 1800w inverter. That means it’s the same as in our homes but not for very powerful devices. You may hook up all your electric small devices up to 1500w such as phones, cameras etc. Please bear in mind that the sockets are of the "continental" type (ie France, Germany).
