About Us

Island Sailing is a British yacht charter sailing company with a love of sailing and a passion for exploring the beauty of the Mediterranean and Caribbean islands from the sea.

We offer a wide choice of beautiful and modern sailing yachts available in the Greek islands for bareboat, flotilla, learn to sail, skippered and crewed charters in the Ionian islands from our founding base at Lefkas marina as well as from Gouvia marina in Corfu and Alimos marina in Athens.

Following requests from many loyal clients and, after extensive research on the ground we added the Caribbean, predominantly in the British Virgin Islands, as a new sailing destination for winter sailing in the sun and Croatia for a different option for summer sailing from Trogir, near Split.

All the yachts we offer are either owned by us or by one of a very small, select group of yacht owners/operators whom we have chosen for their exacting standards akin to our own and are hand picked by us so we can be sure they are exceptionally well maintained, presented and equipped. We are in a unique and enviable position to offer our clients a service and product that draws from the very best of both worlds - the knowledge, experience and expertise that comes with being a yacht owner and operator making us best placed to decide which yachts, owners and operators are good enough to fly the Island Sailing flag.

We operate our own Island Sailing flotillas in Greece and Croatia and are proud to have firmly established a premium approach to flotilla sailing which has arguably become the benchmark for others to follow or aspire to. Our flotillas offer a unique blend of support and flexibility with a friendly and sociable yet low key and extremely professional approach.

Island Sailing is also a successful British fully accredited Royal Yachting Association Training Centre offering a comprehensive range of RYA training courses from our Greek Ionian base at Lefkas marina.

Our standards and expectations are extremely high and we are committed to offering the best choice of modern yachts in Greece, Croatia and the Caribbean together with the highest levels of personal and professional service.

The people who help you plan your sailing holiday have all spent many years sailing in Greece as well as exploring the Dalmatian Coast in Croatia. A number of our team have also been fortunate to have lived and worked in Greece for many years managing or working for Island Sailing's base operations and have also been lucky enough to have explored the Croatian and Caribbean sailing areas too. Having a team who have personally ran Island Sailing flotillas, managed base operations overseas, lived on the islands where we sail and enjoyed many yacht charter holidays ourselves means we have a depth of understanding of what it takes to make a great sailing holiday which far surpassing others. 

We have an amazing team of dedicated and enthusiastic professional sailors and support staff. With their energy, experience and expertise they set the highest standards of professionalism and service in our industry and fill each season for us, and everyone who sails with us with boundless amounts of fun!
