Booking a boat

In order to make the reservations as smooth as possible, Sailing In Blue has prepared the following note describing the usual procedure of booking a bareboat (both for sailing or motor yacht) charter for your yachting holidays in the Greek islands.

STEP 1 - REQUEST

Please give us:

  • your full name
  • dates or period required
  • ports or sailing area desired
  • number in party or preferred type/size of the yacht
  • and any special request you might have at this stage.

Please note that departure & returns of charters are usually scheduled for Saturdays. Duration of charters is 1 or 2 or 3. full weeks.

One-way charters are many times possible between Sailing In Blue charter bases in Greece, according to the availability planning, and generally apply to 14 or more days of charter and for yachts of 36 feet or bigger.

The more information we get from you, the more appropriate choices we propose. Usually you can expect an answer within the same day. Very often our answer includes more than one available yacht, her equipment, prices and discounts - ALL to meet your requirements.

STEP 2 - OPTION

After you are informed about available yachts and prices, and are really interested in one or more yachts you should tell Sailing In Blue to keep the yacht(s) for you. In such a case we will keep one or at maximum two of the previously offered available yachts under "option" for a maximum period of 7 days. This means the boat is blocked for you for one week - until your final decision is made. If you do not confirm the booking during this period of time, this "option" will automatically be cancelled. Please note: In case the option is asked during the high season (end July - Mid October) or if an option is asked a few days before the commencement of every charter, then the duration of the "option" is less than 3 days.

STEP 3 - BOOKING

When you consider your booking fix and final, please confirm this in written to us by sending us the dates, bases, exact price, extras and other special requirements or useful information. We shall then reconfirm the booking immediately to you by giving you a charter code number. In your future correspondence, please always refer to the charter code. You will receive by e-mail the contract and all necessary payment and charter information.
