Chartering Options

Bareboat, Skippered charters , Assisted bareboat charters?

Nisos Yacht Charter offers all of the above. We are predominantly a bareboat charter company (you come and pick up the boat, skipper it yourself and then return it to us at the end of the holiday) - and this is what we aim to get all of our clients doing as it is the best way to explore the islands with total freedom and at your own pace.

We can supply skippers to either give you tuition or to do all the work for you so you can just relax and enjoy your holiday. This is great for non sailors or for those who just want to leave all of the responsibility and decision making to someone else for a change! 

Alternatively, we run an Assisted Bareboat Charter programme, which is a half way house between the normal flotillas and bareboat charters, so you get the safety net which a flotilla provides, with the freedom of a bareboat sailing. This is perfect for the less experienced crew who are taking their first step away from the flotilla. This programme is limited to only 6 boats per week, so if you are considering this option - book early.

*****UPDATE*****  From 2010, all Bareboat and Assisted Bareboat yachts must have a qualified skipper on board who has an International Certificate of Competence ("ICC") or at least an RYA Day Skipper qualification.  An equivalent sailing qualification from overseas sea schools is of course also acceptable.  We cannot charter based on experience only.  This is following Greek law and we are unable to deviate from this.  An ICC can be gained by assessment in as little as an afternoon on the water.  We have people around the UK who are able to perform this service for you.  Please call us to discuss - 01600 890606.
