Requirements for bareboat charter

If you are an already qualified sailor, you can acquire a yacht charter in Greece without the need for a skipper. For motorboats that move up to 30hp, a license isn’t necessary. But keep in mind that even if you are qualified, it may be better to have a seasoned skipper on board who is well familiar with the surrounding area and shallow waters and reefs in the local Greek islands.

Accepted licenses in Greek Waters:
ICC, International Prerequisites: RYA “Day Skipper Course”
IPC, America Prerequisites: ASA 104 or US Sailing “Bareboat Cruising Course”
The USA – US Sailing “Bareboat Cruising Course”, ASA “104 Bareboat Cruising Course” or above.
CANADA – CYA “Intermediate Cruising Standard” or higher or “Canadian Pleasure Craft Operator Card”.
You don’t need a VHF Radio Certificate in Greece!
You should be aware that some harbor authorities in Greece no longer accept the national equivalent to RYA Day skipper, they only accept ICC. But, all national permissions can be easily converted to ICC.
Greek Port Authorities also request that the skipper should be assisted by at least one member of the crew with some boating experience. This assisting crew member should be 18 years or older.

It is important to send a copy of your sailing license before you confirm a reservation so we can check the validity.

Otherwise, we can provide you with a local professional skipper and other crew members like hostess and chef to take care of you and make your sailing holidays to remember.
