  • Do we have a say in the itinerary?
  • We do not have a fixed itinerary, to the contrary we try to input personal parameters for each individual group. Hence, on first day, together with your captain with the week's windforecast in hand, you will select the most suitable set of stopovers.

    Finalizing your itinerary is one of the highlights of your sailing cruise. Upon boarding, your captain will summarize the route options according to your wishes and the weather forecast and will be happy to suggest dream destinations only accessible by sailboat.

  • What is the source of electricity?
  • On board there is AC electricity 230Volts for devices up to 1500Watt. It means it's the same as in our homes but not for very powerful devices. Regarding hairdryer it really depends on the Watt it consumes. Howver when the yacht is plugged to the shore power you can any device without problem at all.

     
  • How large are the beds?
  • The size of the beds in the two double cabins is 1,30 x 1,90 meters. The size of the beds in the triple cabin is 0,90 x 1,90 meters

     
     
  • Can you please elaborate on the shower facilities on board?
  • Like on any decently appointed 40' yacht, each 'bathroom' is accessed through a sliding door and consists of a marine head, a washbasin, a mixing faucet with a shower phone, a closet, shelves, a large mirror and an electric light. The surface on which one stands between the toilet bowl and the closet consists of a grating which allows shower water to drain in a sump where it will be picked up by a bilge pump. The total area is sufficient for a person of reasonnable size to shower and dry itself with a towel.

        August 2018

    We were delighted of our week on board Cyclades Sun catamaran with skipper Raphael. Wonderful vacation, swimming in crystal clear waters, great shared moments, precious advice and a very functional boat! Especially the skipper was very friendly and attentive. This cruise more than met our expectations! Thank you again to the entire Archipel team and fair winds.

    Two months ago we chartered your Punch catamaran at your base in Paros at the early booking price. First time in Greece with family. Not only the boat was in good condition but we also found your skipper to be very competent and friendly. Our kids loved him. The cabins are simple yet functional, however it's true we spent most of our time outside. The sailing area has fantastic swimming and snorkeling spots. Many thanks again for our brilliant holiday!

                FAQ

  • What would be a typical day onboard the yacht?

  • Breakfast, fresh food provisioning if needed, sailing (average of 3 to 6 hours per day depending on the itinerary), swimming and lunch onboard, arrival to your destination around 3 pm, sightseeing, beach, relaxing on the yacht, dinner ashore, evening leisure time.
  • Are there any electric plugs on the boat?

  • Yes, our yacht is equipped with an inverter, meaning that we have 2 AC plugs for recharging mobile phones, cameras or Ipods and operating small household appliances like a fruitblender, they are standard continental european plugs (France, Germany, Italy etc). The yacht also has DC cigarette lighter plugs like in a car.
  • What happens if there’s no wind?

  • Statistically, during summer in the Cyclades islands, there are up to 2 or 3 windless days per month. When this happens, diesel engines take over, itineraries are less constrained, there’s more relaxing, swimming and snorkeling.
  • Do you carry snorkeling gear on board?

  • Yes, you will find available aboard
  • What happens if the wind blows hard?

  • Specifically designed for sailing charter in the Greek islands under Meltemi conditions, our Pahi catamaran sails to her destination every day, providing safety and comfort to everyone onboard. However, rough weather sailing is not every one’s cup of tea. This is why our skippers daily monitor long term forecasts, anticipating a blow and tailoring your itinerary according to your preferences. You may rest assured that whatever happens, you will not be stuck in port if you do not wish to!
  • How do the meals work on the trip? Dinner in or out?

  • Typically, our guests have breakfasts on the boat and lunches on the boat or ashore depending on the itinerary. Lunches on board consist of light meals; sandwiches, salads, fruits etc. Substantial dinners are taken ashore in a traditional Greek taverna unless you prefer to cook onboard.
  • Is scuba an available activity for certified divers?

  • Regarding Scuba diving: because of the large number of antiquities on the sea floor and the amount of damage and theft occurred in the past, scuba diving is very strictly regulated in the Eastern Mediterranean (Greece & Turkey). One may only dive in areas cleared by the archeological authorities and is required to register with Coast Guard for each dive. Should a reasonnable amount of poeple on board be interested in diving we can prearrange dive sessions with dive clubs in the following islands: Paros, Syros, Mykonos, Milos, Santorini.
  • Can we hire a hostess?

  • The Punch 41 catamaran has a permanent crew consisting of a captain only. In the Greek islands we believe a hostess on board is not absolutely necessary since:
    - One may order in advance and get all the groceries delivered on board just prior embarkation
    - Dinners are usually taken ashore in a traditional Greek taverna by the sea or in a scenic village
    - Breakfasts on board do not require a great deal of effort
    - Lunches may be an issue needing preparations but our inventive customers have found the following solution: the evening before, they order takeaway cooked food from the taverna, keep it in the boat’s refrigerator and serve it for lunch on the next day accompanied by salad, cheese and fruit from the yacht’s pantry. And if you think that dishwashing doesn’t go well with holidays, disposable cardboard plates are available everywhere!
    So unless you really want to, there will not be much cooking on board.
  • How many nights at anchor vs. dining on our own in a restaurant ashore do you estimate?

  • The catamaran spends most nights at anchor and we usually go ashore for exploring and dining out. Tavernas are simple affairs providing excellent price to quality ratio, meaning unless you eat only pasta and salad, there's no way you can cook cheaper than a taverna, where you may sample a great variety of dishes and you do not have to wash dishes afterwards!
  • How large is the refrigerator onboard?

  • The electric refrigerator on the Punch 41 catamaran has a capacity of 35 USgal while in the cockpit there's also a 5 USgal icebox for drinks. You may shop bulky and heavy items (like bottled water) in Paros as the grocery is handily close by, but you can resupply perishables (ie fruit, vegie, yoghurt) in almost any island.
