BENETEAU 50 CHARTER

Skippered yacht in Paros. Cost by the size of your party!

The Beneteau 50 is here to meet the growing demand for sailing charters starting from Paros.

Her permanent captain and the painstaking maintenance at the pits stops between charters at our base warrant you a perfectly maintained yacht for your sailing holidays.

  • Who decides of 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.

     
  • Can I customize the listed itineraries?
  • Of course. The beauty of a sailing cruise is to experience a unique voyage tailored to your wishes. However bear in mind that sailing is about taking the wind into account. Your captain will advice you on the best sailing route options in order to let you get the best of the Greek islands.

        June 2014

    We had a marvelous week on your yacht in June. Everything went very smoothly. The boat was very comfortable and in excellent condition. The kitchen/ sleeping/sound/electrical/swimming/ toilet facilities all contributed to our comfort aboard. Small touches like your coming to visit us in Nuassah and bringing us fruit from your tree was a very appreciated personal touch. Your organisation of our holiday was impeccable - from the ordering and delivery of groceries to the boat, the cleanliness of the boat and bedrooms, to our skipper Eva. Eva was just amazing, she told us stories about the local islands. Her fluency in English, her professionalism, responsibility, ability friendliness and her communication skills all helped to give us all an unforgettable holiday. She is really wonderful. You have a very beautiful country and we saw a small part of it in a very relaxing and comfortable way. We thank you for an unforgettable holiday, and hope to sail with you again in the future.. I have attached 2 photos.

    location voilier cyclades
        May 2014

    The holiday spent in these wonderful Cyclades islands remains etched in our memories. Our skipper Eric allowed us to discover preserved places such as Sikinos Skinoussa, Koufounissia, Amorgos, Iraklia and a few others, a little more touristy like Santorini and Naoussa, Paros. We greatly enjoyed the diversity of these islands. On Thursday Eric trusted Jako who had the great pleasure steering with windy conditions: for sure Eva and George were a little worried watching the boat arrive under full sail in Parikia port. All in all we are very happy to have experienced this sensational last day!
    Frederick was introduced to sailing under the best possible conditions: a superb boat comfortable and well equipped, perfect weather and a great skipper with whom we have shared moments of complicity. Edith and Nadine took full advantage of these great moments of freedom and swimming in cool, clear waters.
    Thank you to all the Archipel team (Vanessa thank you for your competent and reassuring coaching).

                FAQ

  • Why a watermaker?

  • 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.
  • Does the boat have a coffee machine?

  • The yacht is equipped with a plunger type coffee maker (a.k.a. French press). This system is convenient, safe and uses no electricity. Coffee tastes excellent!
  • 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.
  • Do you carry snorkeling gear on board?

  • Yes, we do carry a score of masks & snorkels as well as flippers of various sizes.
  • How far are the ferries from your boats?

  • Archipel's fleet is conveniently docked in the yacht harbour of Parikia in Paros, 300 yards from the ferry dock.
  • Does the boat has a barbecue?

  • Sorry, the boat does not have a barbecue because it is an insurance issue with open flames on deck.
  • Can we help sail the yacht?

  • Of course, help as much as you want, or as little as you desire. Only when docking at least one person ought to be willing to help the skipper. Feel free to ask him why he is doing something, or what the sailing terminology means. If you happen to be at the helm and the skipper says it is time to tack or change course, it could be because there's a nasty little rock or reef in the way and you probably really should follow that advice.
  • 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.
  • Would you kindly advise whether the boat runs 220v or 12 v and the type of electrical plug it has?

  • 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).
  • Can we resupply food in any Cyclades island?

  • Except in the smallest Greek islands, it is no problem to resupply in fresh products. Your captain can help you with advance planning regarding food shopping.
