The Saronic sailing area broadly consists of the Saronic Gulf and Argolic Gulf.

What is it like to sail in the Saronics?

The Argo-Saronic Gulf and eastern coast of the Peloponnese or ‘Saronics’, are renowned for perfect sailing conditions with plenty of wind to have a really fun bareboat charter in the sunshine. A protected sailing area with consistent summer winds, averaging Force 4-5 with some areas affected by the Meltemi wind. In the evenings there can be some isolated katabatics off the high mountains of the Peloponnese, although these only last for a few hours before dying down. Choose shorter hops and relaxing bay stops or venture further and sail your heart out.

What is the weather like?

The Saronic islands are blessed with a truly lovely climate. During the summer months the weather is consistently warm both day and night. Fantastic summer sailing holiday weather can be enjoyed from May until October when you can expect long, sunny days with very little chance of rain. Seasonal winds keep air fresh and are perfect for sailing. During April, October and November whilst milder it’s usually pleasant and often lovely and warm, with more chance of some rain but plenty of sunshine.

The Saronic Yachts

Brilliant Boats & Cool Catamarans

Find your Perfect Yacht

We have the widest choice of thoughtfully selected modern yachts built by renowned yacht makers including Beneteau, Bavaria, Jeanneau, Dufour and Hanse and catamarans from Lagoon, Fountaine Pajot and Bali.


We know from experience what specifications and options make for a great charter yacht. There’s a choice of classic slab reefed mainsail or in-mast furling, if you prefer bow thrusters, many of the yachts over 40 feet have them. All yachts have wheel steering and most over 38 feet are twin helm. All yachts have a bimini sunshade in the cockpit and remote control electric anchor windlass. Many of the larger yachts and catamarans also have extras like electric winches, additional large fridges, coffee machines, on-deck drinks coolers and even on deck BBQ’s!


Listen to your favourite music onboard your yacht whilst sailing and relaxing both above and below deck with the latest maritime music systems onboard. Use your devices, cameras and video cameras and keep them charged wherever possible with various AUX and USB ports and charging points. Many of the yachts also offer optional onboard wi-fi if you need to stay connected on charter. All of the yachts have the latest colour GPS chartplotters (as well as the paper charts of course!).


All of the modern, latest generation yachts we offer are designed with sunny Mediterranean and Caribbean sailing in mind. That’s why they all have light and airy designs with plenty of opening hatches, port lights and windows to let the fresh summer breezes circulate around your yacht. In addition, many of the yachts have small cabin fans, some also have these in the salon areas too. Many yachts over 47 feet and the majority of catamarans also have air conditioning and a generator.


In addition to your beautiful yacht – the ultimate ‘water toy’; all boats come with a dinghy tender and optional outboard engine for exploring coves and little beaches and getting to shore when anchored in a pretty bay. Almost every yacht offers a modern, wide sunbathing platform and on the larger yachts these are often electrically operated. Most yachts also have additional water toys you can hire such as stand-up paddle boards (SUP’s) or kayaks.
