The pulse of the yacht charter industry in Greece ebbs and flows with the seasons.
The fluctuations in yacht availability during the low, mid, and high seasons vary greatly depending on the type and size of the vessel.
Understanding yacht availability and the seasonal flux is vital for optimizing your experience, so let’s dive into the details so you can plan the best time to charter the irresistible Greek islands.
As each season paints the Greek islands in a different hue, so does Yaloou curate a distinct array of onboard experiences to enrich your voyage, creating memories that last far beyond the journey.
As the Greek summer unfolds in all its glory, soak up all the exciting activities. With our fully-equipped vessels, you can enjoy a range of water toys, from jet skis to paddleboards, for an adrenaline-filled day under the Grecian sun.
And what’s summer in Greece without a party on the Aegean Sea? From floating DJ decks to spacious lounging areas, our yachts set the perfect stage for unforgettable celebrations, be it a corporate event or a lively bachelor’s party.
During the high season, yacht availability is at its most competitive.
Savor the best of both worlds. The waters remain lively, perfect for thrilling water sports, while the islands start to regain their tranquility, presenting an opportunity for serene exploration.
During these months, we recommend immersing yourself in Greek culture. For example with Greek cooking classes. Learn to recreate the zest of Greek cuisine under the guidance of our skilled chefs, with the endless blue sea as your backdrop.
The bookends of our yachting season bring with them a soothing calm. The islands slow their pace, the tourists dwindle, and the waters whisper stories of ancient civilizations.
This is the perfect time for a relaxing retreat. Rejuvenate in the warm bubbles of our onboard jacuzzi or lose yourself in a book on the sun deck, with the gentle lapping of waves as your soundtrack. Indulge in a gourmet lunch on deck as our expert chefs whip up authentic Greek delicacies just for you.
However, it’s important to note that from October to March, the vibrant island of Mykonos closes its doors for the season. Nevertheless, this time is ideal for visiting the less crowded, equally enchanting islands of Delos and Rhenia.
Yacht availability is at its most flexible during the low season.
No matter the low or high season, Yaloou ensures a rich tapestry of experiences that align with the rhythms of Greece, making your yachting journey as enchanting as the destinations you explore.
In the heart of the Greek summer, the Meltemi winds, coming from the north, present a unique characteristic of the Aegean climate. These winds, while offering a cooling respite from the summer heat, can bring a slight change of plans for those at sea.
At Yaloou, we’ve observed how these conditions distinctly affect larger yachts and powerboat day cruisers differently.
Agile and adaptable day boats
Our powerboats and luxury RIBs, perfect for day-long escapes, range from 28 to 43 feet. Their compact size and high maneuverability make them more adaptable to varying weather conditions.
The low season in May and October offers cooler temperatures and calmer waters, making it an excellent time for intimate, tranquil explorations.
The mid-season, from June to September, introduces a slight increase in the Meltemi winds.
However, the agility of our powerboats allows for thrilling navigational experiences during these months. Come July and August, the high season, these vessels are primed for the fullness of Greek summer, offering an exciting platform for water-based adventure and luxury.
The grandeur of our large yachts, which span 46 to 100 feet, isn’t just about the luxury they offer—it’s also about their impressive ability to harness the changing seasons. The low season, comprising May, September, and October, offers a more laid-back sailing experience.
As we move into the high season, from June through August, these majestic vessels truly shine. Despite the Meltemi winds’ peak during these months, our large yachts, with their stability and strength, provide an uninterrupted sailing experience, letting you fully enjoy the vibrant energy of the Greek summer.
What sets Yaloou apart in the luxury yacht charter industry is our unmatched dedication to service, our extensive knowledge of the Greek islands, and our impressive fleet of owned, not leased, vessels. Each yacht in our fleet is a statement of sophistication and style, catering to the discerning needs of our guests.
