What type of boat is best for Athens?

When deciding which type of boat rental to choose in Athens, it's essential to consider the duration of your stay on board. If you want to spend a short time on the water, RIB and motorboats are perfect for a day trip.

However, if you intend to spend a more extended period on the boat, selecting a vessel with ample space and a range of amenities would be more suitable.

We left Alimos marina and went to Aegina, Poros, Spetses, Hydra and Methana. All of the islands were special in there own way, each with something unique to offer. It was spectacular.

we booked the boat for a family of 5 and Kostas and the crew were amazing in every aspect. Prior to the trip he was available on WhatsApp whenever we needed and could answer all questions about where/when/how and what we would do. the boat had everything we needed including kitchen utensils and stand up paddle boards and showers and more. They made us eggs and coffee on request, and could recommend restaurants and other activities when we were docked at port. i would definitely recommend kostas and his team for a family holiday or other trip sailing the islands.

Sydney despite her age proved an extremely capable sailor. Took great care of the yacht and redelivered it back without even the slightest of issues. We would be privileged to see her again in the future!
