What do Nisos Yacht Charter provide?

Nisos Yacht Charter provides fantastic sailing holidays aboard a modern fleet of sailing boats in the wonderful Ionian Islands, Greece.  Bareboat, Assisted Bareboat, flotillas and skippered charters are all provided.  We have the perfect holiday for you, regardless of your sailing ability.

Sailing holidays in the Ionian Islands are suitable for all ages and abilities, due to the protected and flat waters.  The Ionian is such a perfect sailing area, with its numerous islands, bays and beautiful Greek villages to visit.  So much to explore - and the best way to do that is on your own yacht!  Every day in the Ionian is a new adventure!

Where are Nisos Yacht Charter based?

We have just the one yacht charter base, which is on the island of Lefkas / Lefkada in the heart of the Ionian Islands, Greece.  We operate from the small village of Perigiali – the perfect place to start your holiday from.  We are located only 35 minutes from Preveza airport.  Our base is very central for the whole Ionian region, which makes it ideal for exploring either the South Ionian or the North Ionian - or both!

We can advise on great itineraries for you.

What yachts are available for bareboat charter in the Ionian?

We have a mixed fleet of 20 yachts from Jeanneau, Bavaria and Legend from 32ft to 51ft in size.  All of the yachts are monohulls and equipped and maintained to the very highest of standards.  We are very proud of the work that we put into the maintenance and presentation of our fleet.  All yachts are fitted with extra anchor chain (minimum of 50 meters up to 90 meters on the larger yachts) and the undisputed best anchor - the ROCNA, so you can be confident of your anchor staying put.

All yachts are fitted with a proper bimini, chart plotter, autopilot, music system, electric windlass, 240V inverters, full instrumentation, holding tanks on all heads, tender & outboard engine, fully equipped galley and chart table, all necessary safety equipment and many extras to make your holiday perfect.

In addition to the yacht charters, we also have some luxurious villas for rental on Lefkas / Lefkada.  These villas are located in the best possible locations and all have their own private swimming pool and incredible views as standard.  Many clients go sailing for a week on one of our yachts and then retreat to a villa for a second week (or vice versa).   This is a fantastic holiday for all the family.
