Yacht charter Lavrion

Lavrion colorful port sunset landscape

Our base at Lavrion Port is at the south east of Attica, which is bursting with archaeological and cultural treasures. Lavrion, known as ‘the gateway to the Cyclades’   is a convenient base from which to explore over 220 Greek islands, including beautiful Santorini and Mykonos. 

You’ll be able to explore some of the most significant archaeological sites in Greece during a Lavrion sailing vacation. These include a sail to Sounion, where you can stroll the ancient ruins of the Temple of Poseidon that tower on a cliff high above the Aegean.

From Lavrion, it’s a short sail to Kea Island, the perfect spot to avoid the tourist hordes and discover the beaches, including the sands at Liparo and beautiful pebbled stretches at Kampi or Spathi. Kea also offers fantastic wreck diving.

On your Lavrion yacht charter, be sure to spend a day in famed Mykonos. Wander narrow cobbled streets lined by whitewashed dwellings, or soak up the lively atmosphere along the upmarket waterfront while enjoying some mouthwatering Greek cuisine. 

To sail in Lavrion, you’ll need a sailing license recognized by the local port authorities. Alternatively, you can hire a skipper. Read our guide to sailing qualifications for more information.

Weather insights

Lavrion local food salad greek gastronomy

When is the best time to visit Lavrion?

The best of the weather is between June and August, with summer temperatures reaching 91ºF. The driest months are between April and September.

The Cyclades has a long sailing season and the shoulder seasons are also good for sailing. Spring temperatures can reach 26ºF in May and fall still has good weather, averaging 73ºF in October. You’ll find the region less busy out of peak season.

What are the sailing conditions in Lavrion?

The sailing conditions include a N to NW prevailing wind averaging force 3 to 4. The Cyclades features the northerly meltemi wind, which peaks in July and August at force 5-7, sometimes, force 9. So you will need to be an experienced sailor to sail the meltemi. Or you can hire a skipper.

Beware of three reefs found to the north, middle and south of Makronisos Island and two reefs close to the mainland (Cape Sounio and Ali Pasas). There is heavy traffic in this area from steamers, fishing vessels and sailing yachts.

When returning to base, go stern to or bow to and use the mooring lines, not your anchor.

  • A diverse fleet of yachts with a wide variety of models and manufacturers to suit every type of sailor.
  • We have +60 exciting destinations and we’re a pioneer in finding new sailing grounds.

  • You’ll receive a warm and friendly welcome from our base teams who will share regional tips, recommendations and advice.
  • We’re also a trusted seller of new and used boats and an innovator in charter management options – sailing is our business.

What licenses do I need to hire a yacht and sail myself?

The skipper of a yacht has primary responsibility for the safety of the crew and yacht at all times. Many destinations require just relevant experience demonstrated by a sailing resume.

To charter in the Mediterranean, it is mandatory that you hold a sailing license recognized by the local port authorities for bareboat charters in Italy, Greece, Croatia, Spain, Malta, Montenegro and Turkey. Other destinations that require a license include Madagascar, Seychelles, Thailand, Brazil and Sweden. For Belize, the port authority will issue a certificate of competency and an application is made on arrival.

You must take your proof of competency and original certificate with you on your charter. We advise you to contact our team about your qualifications and destination requirements before booking.

By accepting the yacht contract you are confirming that you and/or members of your crew are capable and competent to sail the yacht in the conditions and cruising area of the charter. We reserve the right not to hand over the yacht if, after inspection, it is the opinion that the charterer is not, or may not be competent to be in charge of the vessel.

What is a skippered yacht charter?

A skippered yacht charter is when you rent one of our boats for you and your guests and a professional skipper sails it for you. No sailing experience is needed.

You will need to choose a yacht with a cabin for your skipper to sleep in as they are responsible for your yacht for the duration of your charter. We will find the skipper for you once you have found your perfect destination and yacht.

You will need to pay for your skipper’s food. You can invite the skipper to dine with you on board or out at a local restaurant.

What is the difference between crewed and by the cabin charters?

Our by the cabin charter charters offer exciting destination tours on a set itinerary crafted by our destination experts. You can book a double cabin and private bathroom and will share the boat with other guests who have booked the other available cabins. You will be looked after by a professional skipper and hostess with itineraries ranging from three to 11 nights. There is a set menu and included meals and drinks vary depending on location.

Can you tell me about your yachts?

Our super premier yachts are less than 12 months old from their first charter date, while premier yachts are less than three years old from their first charter date. Our yachts are well maintained and undergo regular, scheduled technical inspection.

In case of emergency, you can rely on our hotline, at any time, seven days a week. If you experience a technical failure affecting major and important parts of the yacht, we will repair the failure within four hours of receiving your call during working hours (8am to 5pm). If you lose more than four hours (during working hours), we will compensate you for one full day. If the repair takes more than one day, we will provide you with a similar boat or compensate you on a pro-rata basis. If restrictions to this guarantee apply in specific areas, this will be detailed during the charter check-in at the base.

Do I need insurance?

We highly recommend you arrange travel insurance in case you need to cancel for an unexpected reason to cover non-refundable deposits. Please make sure you have personal travel insurance that covers sailing.

We will insure the vessel throughout the charter with first-class insurers against all risks, to provide permission to charter as under contract terms and to cover third-party liability.

The following options are available in limited locations:

  • Security Deposit: This varies on the size of the boat and when the boat is returned without damage it is refunded.
  • Damage Waiver: The charterer agrees to pay a non-refundable damage waiver at the time of booking, as well as a reduced damage deposit on embarkation that is refundable upon completion of the charter should no damage occur.

Baja is now my favorite place. There was something for everyone: sailing under northerly winds with mostly calm evenings, snorkeling, fishing, secluded sandy beaches, pelican feedings, being greeted by barking sea lions, and exploring the geology of Ispiritu Santo Island. Dream Yacht Base La Paz provided competent professional support with a well-equipped and maintained boat. We were wonderfully cooked by an on-board chef arranged with Dream Yacht, which meant more free time for all of us. An unforgettable vacation and adventure connected with nature.
