  • 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.

    Paros-Paros via Amorgos
    Paros    Sifnos    Despotiko    Koufonissi    Amorgos    Schinoussa    Antiparos    Paros

    Paros    Syros    Mykonos et Delos    Donoussa    Amorgos    Schinoussa    Antiparos    Paros

  • 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.

    What day of the week does the cruise start?
    From mid June to beginning of September boarding takes places on Thursdays at 11 am in Paroikia's yacht harbour in Paros. You will weigh anchor as soon as you are ready! Disembarkation takes place on Wednesdays at 5 pm. If you need to catch a ferry or a plane earlier, it is no problem, your skipper will bring the boat back to her base on time. Outside this period boarding day is flexible.
    Is it possible to drop us in Mykonos instead of Paros?
    In summer prevailing winds in the Cyclades isles are northerlies, strong at times and reaching gale force near Mykonos. Probability of calm is round 3% only. While we can ensure a smooth and pleasurable sailing cruise from Paros, adapting the itinerary to wind conditions, we can never warrant a trip finishing in Mykonos as it could mean heading into winds and seas. Should you need a fast transfer, there are 6 large ferries daily connecting Paros to Mykonos.
    Do you offer short sailing charters?
    Yes, we do offer 4 days sailing cruises on the Punch 41 catamaran, to learn more follow this link !
    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.
    Should we fear strong winds?
    The Cyclades islands are indeed mostly windy in July and August when the Meltemi blows. This wind warrants good sailing conditions and pleasant temperatures. No need to fear the wind as we adapt our itineraries in order to provide you with a exhilarating sailing experience.
    Can you tell us more about the catamaran?
    The catamaran Punch is 12,50 meters (41’) long from a limited series designed by naval architects Mortain and Mavrikios. Built in 2003 in noble and durable materials such as mahogany, she has remarkably fast crossed the Atlantic several times ranking her among performance multi-hulls. In 2016, she joined Archipel's fleet and was integrally overhauled, in addition to being equipped with high-end gear such as a watermaker and AC generator, which are highly appreciated during longer cruises.
    Her layout consists of two lounges (one interior near the galley, the other shaded outside), three cabins (two doubles and one triple, thus you can be up to 7 people), two bathrooms and a relaxation area with cushions and poofs on the forward deck. The skipper has his own separate cabin and bathroom.

    How do I figure costs and expenses?
    Fuel, water, port dues and end cleaning will cost you in total for a week approximately 240 euros. Dinner in a Greek taverna costs about 14 euros per person (local wine, beer or soda included).
    How to provision the yacht?
    You will find within 150 meters from our boats in Paroikia’s harbour (Paros’ main settlement), a supermarket, 2 bakeries, a greengrocer, a bottle shop, a fishmonger etc. The supermarket will gladly lend you someone to push your shopping trolleys to the yacht. As we usually have dinner ashore, provisions are chiefly intended for breakfasts and lunches. Shall the need arise, you may resupply in any of the other islands.
    Do we go into marinas at night?
    In July and August, when harbors get very busy in the Greek islands, yachts generally anchor out in the evenings, unless they need to refill their fuel or water tanks or if they claim a slip before 15:00. Outside this period it is usually not a problem to go into marina at night. Each of our yachts carry a tender or dinghy with an outboard motor, sort of the taxi for getting around. If you wish to dock at a port for the day or evening, the dockage fees are not covered by the charter fee and are at the charterer's expense.
    Is bed linen provided?
    Yes we provide with all bed linen (sheets, pillow cases, blankets) as well as bathroom towels. You just need to bring with your own beach/deck towel.
    Is there a coffee maker on the boat?
    Yes, you will find available on the Punch 41 catamaran a thermos jug fitted with a cone as well as an italian coffe maker.
    How large is the refrigerator?
    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.
    Is the boat equiped with a watermaker?
    Yes the Punch 41 catamaran is fitted with a watermaker. The watermaker (Reverse Osmosis) is a high-end equipment producing fresh water and popular on board superyachts. Now you no longer have to frequently dock into congested ports for filling up water and can instead anchor in beautiful coves untouched by tourism or development. And all this without increasing the cost of renting the boat!
    Is there A/C?
    The catamaran is not outfitted with AC but the Punch insulation is excellent. In the Cyclades islands there is rarely any need of air conditioning as there is almost everyday in summer a cool notherly breeze and the Punch insulation is really excellent. For the rare hot days, each cabin is equiped with a fan.
