Located on the northern coast of Crete in Greece, Rethymno (also known as Rethimno) is your perfect yacht charter destination. This medieval city has a perfect combination of charm, history, and beautiful landscapes.
There are many factors that impact the price of a yacht charter in Rethymno, Greece. For example, prices can differ between different boat types, boat sizes, the time of year, and if you rent with or without a skipper.
A motorboat rental for 6 people is around €1,000 per day throughout the year. A sailboat for 10 people is around €4,200 per week throughout the year. A catamaran rental for 10 people is around €9,890 per week all year round.
The best time to visit Rethymno is during the summer months of June, July, and August. This is when the weather is hot and dry with temperatures averaging around 30 degrees Celsius every day. However, if you want to avoid peak season, Rethymno’s climate is also pleasant with daily temperatures of 25-30 degrees Celsius during May and September. Therefore, you can dodge the crowds if you go during these months.
When searching for a yacht charter on Click&Boat, you will find the option to have a book with or without a skipper and/or crew. While this comes at an extra price, it comes with many benefits. For one, a professional skipper will be able to guide you seamlessly through the waters on your boating holiday. They will handle the sailing, docking, and anchoring of the boat, so you can just sit back and relax. Not only will this ensure absolute comfort, but a skipper will be able to customise your journey to your liking. If you’d like, you can even organise your skipper and/or crew to cook and clean for you for a memorable experience.
There are two sides of Rethymno: the vibrant city filled with history and culture and the relaxing long strips of sandy beaches. Explore the cultural sites of the city by visiting the Holy Monastery of Arkadi. This is a Byzantine church that still stands, an important part of Cretan history as this is where the Cretans refused to surrender to the Turks in 1866. You can also take a stroll along the harbour wall to visit the iconic Venetian lighthouse. Then, our recommendations during the day time are always to head to the beaches where you can choose to soak up the Greek sun or do some water sports in the gorgeous waters. Our top choices of beaches are Bali Beach, Agia Galini Beach, and Preveli Beach.
