In order to charter a sailing or a motor yacht in Greece at least one crewmember (skipper) must own a certificate such as a sailing license or a power boat license respectively.
If none of the crewmembers owns any kind of sailing certificate, you can choose to only view the yachts with an available professional skipper. Usually the skipper is the owner of the boat as well. Yachting Venture is able to recommend and hire a professional skipper on your request otherwise. The additional cost for a professional skipper is 150€ / day regardless of the number of people onboard.
