FLEXIBLE SAILING HOLIDAYS ON PAXOS

GOLDEN ODYSSEUS

"It's a pleasure for me and my family to tell you how good was our cruise with Kate and Kostas. Being the first sailing cruise experience for my wife and our daughter, they really enjoyed these days thanks to the experience and safe attitude of Kostas and Kate's courtesy. We saw wonderful spots and swam in a fantastic sea." - MM, Switzerland

"Our 4-day charter of Golden Odysseus was the highlight of our fortnight in Greece. Kate and Kostas welcomed us aboard their spacious yacht and took us on a relaxing cruise from Paxos back to Corfu, visiting some lovely towns on the mainland on the way. Kostas handled the boat like a pro, whilst Kate provided fabulous meals and coffees. Once anchored, the children could swim, snorkel and even have a go at kayak-surfing. Do not expect uniforms and spit and polish, this is a holiday for people who want to cruise this lovely area in a very comfortable boat with delightful hosts who can show you the real Ionian Island experience." - CC, Dorchester

"I had an idea that we could use the trip on Golden Odysseus to celebrate a big birthday with many far-flung friends. The reality was so much more than I expected and we shared a very special day together. Kate and Kostas took immaculate care of us, they were so kind, the day was so good, everybody was so happy and pleased and relaxed. We all felt so spoilt. Paxos does not need much embellishment, but from the deck of Golden Odysseus the island assumed a radiance I could not have anticipated." - M-AB, London

Golden Odysseus is an ocean-going Skipper 53 that comes with her own skipper and hostess. She is an elegant yacht and, although slightly older than our other two yachts (she was built in 1994), she has recently been refurbished and has a large, comfortable interior, and spacious teak decks for sunbathing and relaxing. Golden Odysseus offers the chance to experience 'bigger boat sailing' at reasonable cost, even if you have never sailed before.

Golden Odysseus is owned and crewed by Kostas and Kate, who take real pride in their yacht and look after their guests extremely well. Kostas is the skipper and, as hostess, Kate does the shopping and cooks breakfast and lunch; she will also cook dinner if you would like to dine on board. So you can be as hands on or as laid back as you like. 

There are four double cabins, each with its own en suite head and shower, one of which is occupied by the skipper and hostess.

The large comfortable saloon has seating for 12 and has a flat screen TV, DVD player, music system with speakers both below and on deck, and a Wi-fi connection. The galley kitchen has full cooking facilities, including two fridges, an oven, hob and microwave. Bed linen, towels, and pillows are provided.  

The cockpit has a large bimini sunshade, bathing platform, swim ladder and deck shower. Fishing equipment is provided and the dinghy is equipped with an outboard motor.

The Cost: Prices are available on application but, as a guide, the weekly charter fee ranges from £3,500 in May, early June, September and October to £4,950 in late July and August. Fuel, water, any port fees, food and drinks (for your party and your skipper/hostess) are not included and are to be paid locally. 

Golden Odysseus can also usually be chartered for periods of as little as two or three days, especially out of high season. Prices are available on application but, as a guide, the daily charter fee ranges from £700 to £850.

Day Trips: Day trips (maximum capacity 10 persons) from 10.00 to 18.00 are also sometimes available at short notice, in which case the charter fee of 750 euros (to be paid locally) includes the services of the skipper and hostess, fuel, lunch, wine and soft drinks. A special family rate of 500 euros is available for up to four children and their parents. Day trips from Corfu Town normally go up to Kassiopi and the pretty bays opposite the coast of Albania before returning via Vidos Island if sailing conditions are good. Trips from Paxos might go round Paxos and Anti Paxos stopping off in secluded bays, or across to Sivota Mourtas or Parga on the coast of Epirus, if sailing conditions are good. If you are interested in a day trip while holidaying on Paxos or Corfu, then please contact us.

As Golden Odysseus comes with her own skipper, no previous sailing experience is required.

Other Yachts: We can also offer three other yachts. Circe is a beautiful Norwegian gaff-rigged ketch that has been completely rebuilt to a very high standard and comes with her own captain and crew of two. The guide price for a week's charter, including the captain and crew, is £8,000 - £12,500. True Commitment II is a Sun Odyssey 52.2 built in 2002 and is a spacious yacht offering real luxury and style. The guide price for a week’s charter, including the skipper, is £3,150 - £4,500 and for two days' charter £1,300 - £2,000. The Bavaria 41 is ideal for smaller groups or for anyone wanting to enjoy sailing for a couple of days while still retaining the comfort of their own villa.The guide price is £450 - £700 a day, including the skipper.
