In the Greek climate you will spend most of your time outside, especially whilst on a yacht, therefore it is good to know that you have 90 square meters of teak deck. The cockpit is spacious and fits up to 18 people, whereas we have a maximum of 8 guests, so there is plenty of room to make yourself comfortable. The whole cockpit area is covered by a bimini (sun tent) to provide shade. If you want to work on your tan, we have sun beds ready for you on the foredeck and centre where you can gaze at the ocean or relax with a book while the yacht is cutting through the water under sail.
The yacht has a solid stairway on the side to get in and out the water. After a refreshing swim you will find a shower at the top of the stairs to wash off the salt.
By the way, sleeping on deck is a great experience and our sun beds make a night under the stars very comfortable.
Once you walk down the stairs from the cockpit to the salon you will find the spacious sitting area of nearly six meters width, so it will never seem crowded. Our salon retains a cozy and comfortable atmosphere due to the wooden interior, round table and comfortable chairs. It is equipped with air-conditioning, the headroom is more than enough (2,5m) and thanks to large windows you will have a nice view of the ocean. There is plenty of room for you to play games together, or read a book in a quiet corner while everyone else is outside. You can have your meal in the salon or outside. There is a good audio system with CD’s and MP3 input, so you are welcome to bring your favorite music.
We have four cabins available for guests each with en-suite bathrooms with toilet and shower. There is plenty of room to store your clothing. Your cabin has telephone and stereo equipment as well as a vanity table. Each cabin has its own air-conditioning unit, which allows you to find a comfortable temperature. During your holiday the cabin offers you maximum privacy to fully relax. Come and have the yacht rock you to sleep!
Procedure & Service
Your holiday will start as soon as you arrive in Greece. We take care of your transfer from Preveza airport to the Yacht and we will make sure that we have enough provisions on board. All you have to do is to put your luggage in your private cabin and relax. After you are fully settled in we will tell you all about the ship and safety. After this we set sail. There are many islands and ports to visit. Often we will let the wind decide where we will stop for lunch and overnight. Within hours of touchdown at the airport you will be on board Viola, anchored in a sunny blue bay, taking a swim and having a drink.
Your booking will always include breakfast and lunch. As well as all onboard non-alcoholic drinks like soft drinks, water, coffee and tea.
At night when we are in a port you can enjoy the local cuisine at one of the many taverns. The prices are very fair and whether you prefer meat, seafood or vegetarian dishes the Greeks can do it all. If you prefer to have dinner onboard, our chef is always willing to meet your wishes. With our guests we go through the options day by day.
If you would like to water-ski (or learn it) we have all the equipment onboard to do so. We also have snorkeling kit ready if you would like to swim to one of the beautiful islands, or if you wish, to inspect the bottom of Viola! If you like scuba diving, please inform us in advance so we can arrange this for you. The water is crystal-clear so it’s well worth it.
When we are anchored in a port or bay there is a 24-hour tender service from and to the yacht.
Midway between Greece and Italy rise the fertile islands from the deep blue sea. Contrary to some other Greek islands, the terrain of the Ionian Islands is not barren and rocky. You will find a colourful setting of vineyards, olive groves and fruit orchards. This is a perfect sailing area due to the beauty of the islands, the crystal clear water, mild breezes and the sheltered harbours.
The seven main islands of the Ionian Sea are:
Kefalonia, the largest, was made famous by the book and movie ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’. The island is covered in citrus trees, olive groves and vineyards and, on the northwest coast steep cliffs drop down to white pebble beaches.
Corfu is the second largest island in the north close to Albania. The south of the island is covered with green farmland, vineyards and orange groves rising up to mountains in the north. The empress Sissi had her palace here.
Paxos, just below Corfu, is the smallest of the Ionian islands, full of olive trees. This sleepy island has just three tiny villages - Gaios, Lakka and Loggos.
Lefkas is further south and covered with pine trees, beautiful beaches and picturesque harbour villages. It is close to the mainland and connected with a bridge. The second largest town on the island is Nidri with many restaurants, bars and a nice boulevard. This town is home of this beautiful yacht. Tiny islands like Meganissi where you might spot dolphins, and the wooded Skorpios, where the Onassis family had their home are just off the coast.
Zakynthos, the sixth island from north to south, is known for its rugged coastline with high cliffs (lime rock) inbetween that you will find small deserted beaches.
Ithaka, a small island east of Kefalonia, is the legendary home of Odysseus, hero of Homer’s Odyssey. The east coast has quiet waters and steady afternoon breezes. You may want to visit some beautiful towns like Frikes and Kioni.
Kythira, sitting lonely at the south tip of the mainland of Greece, is where Aphrodite (Greek Goddess of love) was supposedly born. The island is untouched and hilly in the north.
