SHORT CRUISES

A great introduction to the world of sailing

If you are visiting the Greek islands and wish to spend some time on a sailing boat, but one day is too short and a week is too long, then our 4 days catamaran charters are made for you! On this sailing tour you will not see any neon signs, car fumes or crowds of tourists but whitewashed villages tumble down to azure bays, unspoiled secluded coves with crystal clear waters and foodie paradises.
 
Our short sailing tours are available in May, June, September and October.

    What day of the week does the cruise start?
     
    The start of our 4 days sailing cruises is flexible, depending on availability.
     
    How many people can we be on the boat?
     
    The Punch 41 catamaran has three cabins for the clients (2 double cabins and 1 triple bunks cabin) and two bathrooms. Thus you can be up to 7 people. The skipper's quarters are separate.
     
    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.
     
    How do I figure costs and expenses?
     
    Fuel, water and harbour dues are in included in the charter price however kindly remeber that food and beverages for your party and your skipper is at your charge.
     
    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?
     
    Outside July and August harbors in the Greek islands are not yet very busy so it is usually not a problem to go into marinas at night. For the evenings at anchorage in a bay the yacht carries a tender or dinghy with an outboard motor, sort of the taxi for getting around.
     
    For how long do we sail?
     
    Expect between 2 and 4 hours voyaging per day. Sailing takes place in the morning in order to leave the afternoons free for visiting the islands.
     
    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 machine 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.
