Hello Ionian-Charter in marina alimou athens,

In the last three years (2016-2018), I have extensively tested your yachts SY Christina (Oceanis 45), SY Markella (Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469) and SY Ariadne (Oceanis 41.1) always for three weeks in september/october only with my wife.
The yachts also sailed at meltemi (6 to 8 beaufort) across the Aegean Sea (Saronic Gulf, Cyclades, Dodecanese) in over 1200 nautical miles by day and by night excellently.

The yachts are in top condition even towards the end of the season. The inventory is complete and sufficient. Suggestions for improvement and experiences are accepted and implemented.
The organization and service are almost perfect and the team tries to fulfill every wish as well as possible.

I can only congratulate the boss Elena, the manager Maria, the technician Panos, and the rest of the team on their achievements.

One rarely finds such competent and cordial persons. Definitely a company to recommend.

We sail with you again, meltemi Gery & Captain Black Cat, October 2018, Vienna, Austria

Mr. Giese_Cyclades 50.5/2008_22 - 29/09/2018 Athens

Dear Ionian-Team,

I had Chartered a yacht by Ionian Charter by third time. With pleasure I will give you a feedback of the last charter.
It was from 22 until 29 of September 2018. The information during preparation time were very detailed and helpful and we can give our food orders from our place of residence, so we had our main food on boat with fair conditions.
We got a cheap taxi from the Airport for eight persons. When we came to the base we were welcome friendly and could check the yacht.
The check in procedure was excellent, because the person to gave us the boat has taken a lot of time to explain us the different details.
The yacht equipment was very good, and also the condition of the yacht. The sails, the motor, and especially the anchor with 95 meters chain has kept well and safely.

For all three charters, we had perfect ships and a good charter - team.We will also gladly charter with Ionian again in the future.

I wish you have a nice and successful charter in October and November . I hope we see us again at the  "boot" in Duesseldorf in January.

Kind Regards,

Mr. Dagan_Bavaria 40/2008_22 - 29/09/2018 Corfu

Dear Mrs. Marina Beka,

I would like to mention a number of things about renting the yacht in Corfu at the end of September 2018 through your company.

The yacht we received from you was in excellent condition, the reception process was fast and the handsome guy, Costa accompanied us and answered all the questions, and also helped us with various problems encountered during the cruise.
The process of returning the yacht, also passed perfectly.

This is the second time I rent a yacht from you and very much hope to continue.

Thank you very much from the team and me.

Dear Marina,

I am extremely happy with our decision to go with Ionian Charter. The boat was exceptional and our skipper George was everything we could have wished for.

All of the destination were beautiful.

On a personal note I was most impressed with your service with all of the questions  we asked of you. I was impressed with the kindness shown by your staff when one of my companions need to go to hospital at the end of the charter.

I will be recommending Ionian Charter to my friends.

Hopefully we will meet again.

Mr. Efstathiou_Nautitech 46FlY_14 - 21/07/2018_ Athens

Dear Maria,
Our family had a fabulous week sailing the Saronik bay and eastern Peloponnese aboard the Nautitech 46.
What an experience! We all loved the sailing, anchoring in picture perfect bays and swimming in crystal clear waters.
Visiting the various ports for a good greek meal was a bonus.
We would recommend Ionian and hope to sail again next year.
Best Regards,
Takis Efstathiou and family

“We highly enjoyed sailing on Ariadne in the beautiful Ionian Islands. It was such a nice boat, with a good shower, handy kitchen and outdoor space where we spent the most of our time. It was also a pleasure being in contact with your company as customer service was always fast and friendly.
We will highly recommend your company to our friends and definitely will be coming back ourselves. “

I would like to say a big thank you to Ionian charter, Mrs Vrioni and all the team!

We had a great time and everything run smoothly, as I was expecting!

That was the forth flotilla I organised with your company and I can say that every time you are getting better!

Lets take things from the beginning.

All the communication via email and phone to organise the charter was very efficient for a rather uncommon demand as I wanted 3 yachts for an one way Athens to Lefkas.

When we arrived at your base in Athens at 10:30am I couldnt expect anything more. You had all the paper work ready, crewlists, insurance covers, documents etc.. We completed paperwork for 3 yachts in 10 minutes!

Then, the yachts were ready for handover! It was the first time I met Stathis on his working capacity (I met him twice before at the boot). His handovers were perfect, quick, good communication and he addressed everything we needed to know.

The yachts were clean, all tanks full and all equipment in good working condition. By 2pm we departed for our first destination.

During the week we didnt encounter any issue with the yachts.

Regarding the weather conditions, although the wind was occasionally fresh, reaching force 6-7, we were lucky that we had easterlies. this gave us the chance to enjoy some sailing.

All three yachts have reputable speed under power at cruising rpm and are good under sail. Captain Stathis and Markella have a proper Genoa whereas Christina is compensated by her batten main sail.

When we arrived at Lefkas Marina it was a nice surpris
