If you are looking to experience the ultimate luxury charter vacation, look no further than Navigare Yachting’s luxury crewed charter. Picture yourself cruising the warm Mediterranean seas, basking in absolute freedom and comfort, all while being catered to by a highly professional and service-oriented crew. With Navigare Yachting, your dream of a luxury crewed charter becomes reality.


How is it different from a bareboat with a hired crew?

A luxury crewed charter in Greece is the pinnacle of sailing holidays, offering unparalleled lavishness and comfort. When you choose Navigare Yachting’s luxury crewed charter, you get an all-inclusive deal that is far more luxurious than the regular charter. 

What makes it different from a regular charter is that this offering is all inclusive. No budgeting or tracking your spendings and no need to purchase your provisions and cook your food. It’s our equivalent of a luxury cruise. You pay one price and get everything you need. Let go of all worries and immerse yourself in the ultimate freedom to unwind and celebrate your well-deserved holiday.

What makes this offering more exclusive than the regular crewed charter, is that each boat has a full time crew that always work together. They know each other as well as they know the region, setting the stage for top-notch service and local expertise. They are the best guides you could possibly imagine.


What’s included in a luxury crewed charter? 

To embark on this luxurious adventure is an easy choice based on all the incredible offerings included in this deal, which you will soon discover. Let’s take a look at everything you get when you charter a luxury crewed yacht with Navigare Yachting. Of course, this is all in addition to the priceless memories and the stories you will tell for years to come. 

1. The Yacht

Our luxury crewed charters are only offered on some of the largest, most luxurious sailing catamarans in our fleet. In Greece, we currently have three beautiful sailing yachts, Grand Dame, Starlight, and Valinor completely dedicated to this exclusive offering. 

Both Grand Dame and Starlight are Lagoon 560 S2 and Valinor is a Lagoon 55, two of Lagoon’s largest and most innovative models. At 56 feet (17.07 m) and 54 feet (16.46 m) respectively, these catamarans offer plenty of space to lounge, relax and socialize, and are big enough for a large crew without ever feeling crowded. 

Perfectly aligned with the Lagoon brand, both models have elegant and sleek designs that do not compromise with comfort or performance and prove that a boat can truly be like a hotel on the water. Whether you relax on the flybridge, enjoy a breakfast in the cockpit, or socialize in the salon, these boat models are sure to elevate your vacation to new levels of luxury and comfort.

2. Captain

Without the crew, the luxury crewed charter would just be a charter. Our experienced captains possess local knowledge of the best locations to explore as well as extensive sailing skills that come from years of rigorous training and plenty of hours on the water. Relax in the cockpit or on the flybridge and rest assured that your captain will bring you safely to the next stop on your trip without you having to lift a finger. 

Our captains will guide you to hidden coves, stunning deserted beaches, extraordinary dive spots, and picturesque villages along the way, each destination handpicked to suit your wishes and preferences. The captain can also serve as your private guide on the trip, giving you the top recommendations that only a local could.

3. Chef

In addition to the captain, the crew also includes a chef who is responsible for preparing delicious meals and keeping the galley clean during your trip. Our chefs go above and beyond to ensure your every need is met. From purchasing provisions to preparing gourmet meals and serving snacks and drinks, the chef will keep everything you require at your fingertips. 

The chef on your yacht will prepare breakfast, lunch and snacks every day. Many guests prefer to eat dinner ashore at one of the local restaurants, but the chef can also make a delicious dinner onboard if that’s what you and your guests prefer. Either way, you will not be disappointed by the extraordinary culinary experience of Greece. 

4. Conveniences

At Navigare Yachting, we make it easy for you to enjoy the best charter experience with minimal effort from you. Just book your trip with one of our charter agents and we take care of the rest. 

When you arrive, your yacht will be fully equipped with bed sheets, towels, and safety and sailing equipment. The boat also comes equipped with a dinghy and a fully stocked kitchen that has everything your crew needs to provide excellent service. The crew will buy provisions based on your dietary needs and preferences and load everything onto the boat before your departure. Both the water and fuel tanks will be full when you start, and you will also enjoy free Wi-Fi the whole week. Finally, there is no need to worry about cleaning the boat after your trip, as this service is also included. 

5. Insurance and Damage Waiver

As with all of our charters, the luxury crewed charter includes our mandatory insurance package. The Navigare Carefree package includes both the vessel insurance and a damage waiver which guarantees peace of mind for all of our clients. By offering this full coverage insurance we make sure that you as our charter guest will not be liable to pay in case something breaks during your trip. 

6. Watersport Equipment 

On this luxury charter offering, in addition to all the essentials, the boat will be equipped with watersport equipment for optimal entertainment and fun on the water. In this package, you get snorkeling equipment, a flotation ring with rope, a donut, a kayak, a standup paddle board, a wakeboard, bikes and a GoPro camera, ensuring you will always have something fun to do whenever you are at anchor. With this equipment you will create memories to last a lifetime as you try all the activities the water has to offer or go for a bike ride on the nearby island. 

7. Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA)

The Advanced Provisioning Allowance (APA) is simply an amount of money you pay in advance of your charter week. The APA will cover all of your additional expenses so you can enjoy your vacation without having to budget or track your spendings during your trip. 

This amount covers fuel, food, beverages and mooring and docking fees. The captain is responsible for accounting for all of the APA expenses during the trip and will present a breakdown of the costs to the client at the end of the charter. Whatever amount was not used will be refunded back to you. The only cost not accounted for is the dinners you may have in restaurants.
