The northern Ionian Sea is separated from the rest of Greek waters and its climate is different. Corfu is famed for its mild climate (local sailors call the sea ‘holy’) and you with or without yachts can enjoy your holidays far from the climatic vagaries of the Aegean. The geographical position of the island combined with the beauty of its landscape, the many anchorages in the region, the mild climate and the existence of an international airport are determining factors in the recent surge in sailing holiday bookings.

The Gouvia Marina, one of the largest and most attractive in Greece, draws hundreds of yachts from all over the Mediterranean. Today it provides facilities for over 500 yachts, offering full technical services (65-ton travelift, 45 and 14-ton cranes), electricity, water and medical help. Port and customs authorities are available, and you can find a restaurant, bar, shop, swimming pool, baths, toilet and whatever else you require.

 Craft categories

Vessels with no permanent crew - Bare boats. Those yachtsmen who desire to roam the Greek seas may, at a small cost, charter such a boat, provided two of them have an official yachting diploma.

Manned vessels: In case that the persons chartering vessel do not meet the requirements to sail a vessel, they must obtain the services of trained personnel. Usually there is a Cordon Bleu Chef (trained in Greek and International cuisine) together with experienced yachting professionals, eager to make your sailing holidays an unforgettable experience.

 The Cost of Chartering

 It depends on the size of the yacht, the accommodations, the degree of comfort and service required. TheOld fortress Slip base price includes all yacht running costs, wages and provisioning for the crew. The daily price does not include the cost of food, drinks, refreshments, cleaning and any other demand made by the charterer. The charter price only includes the chartering of the boat and insurance. To start with, a deposit will be required against any eventual loss of equipment or damage, which is refunded immediately if the yacht is returned in its initial condition. The skipper (if required) wages are not included. Charterers of bare boats usually buy their own food and drink, but on request, we can arrange for supplies at local prices to be placed on board in readiness before the departure of the vessel. Note: For a group of 4 to 8 people, yachting will prove less expensive than staying at a hotel, and the schedule is definitely more flexible. As a guideline the cost per person per day is between € 29,34 and € 44,02.


Bookings are generally made in advance, but it is possible to rent a yacht last minute (except high season), assuming you have a certificate of experience. A deposit of 25% of the total price is required.





 If, for whatever reason, you cancel the booking, the initial deposit is withheld. However, in case that we are able to charter the vessel under the same terms and for the same dates, it is customary that we will return the deposit, although we are not required by law to do so. By mutual agreement, you can have the boat later in the same season, or in the next, whenever it becomes available.


 The charter party must include full insurance cover for the vessel, the crew and any accidents caused directly by the negligence of the master or the crew or by defects in the vessel. Charterers must arrange their own insurance coverage against illness or accidents arising out of their own negligence or misfortune.
