Mykonos is a fabulous sailing destination in the Mediterranean. Particularly popular with celebrities and people with money, the island is one of the best destinations for luxury private beaches, glamorous parties and lots of history. A catamaran charter in Mykonos allows you to explore the island at your own pace and in style.
A catamaran rental in Mykonos is the perfect choice for anyone who just wants to relax and escape their everyday worries for a week. There is plenty of space on deck to stretch your legs and sunbathe. Catamarans are generally bigger than other types of boats due to the way they are constructed and standing on two hulls.
Rent a catamaran in Mykonos if you want to enjoy a boat holiday that comes with plenty of flexibility. Catamarans are equipped with a sail as well as an engine. You can choose how you want to move forward depending on the weather conditions and your personal preferences.
Another great thing about a catamaran hire in Mykonos is the fact that catamarans offer more stability than other types of boats and feel a lot less shaky. They are standing on two hulls, so when the wind suddenly picks up you won’t feel it as much as would on a monohull.
Mykonos has plenty of amazing beaches to choose from, including Psarou Beach just south of Mykonos town and Paradise Beach, a popular location for summer parties. A catamaran allows you to easily access these beaches and more as they come with a shallow draft. It could also be a great idea to escape the crowds and explore other Greek islands that are close by, like Delos or Tinos.
Something to keep in mind when chartering a catamaran in Mykonos is the fact that catamarans are relatively big and not the easiest to navigate in narrow spaces. As the marinas are quite busy during the summer months you might not find a spot for mooring - and if you do, you will probably have to pay for all the extra space you’re taking up.
Known as a fun and glitzy summer holiday destination, a luxury catamaran charter in Mykonos allows you to fit right in with the crowds. And you get more than a basic kitchen - you get all the amenities you could dream of. Some luxury catamarans even come with a jacuzzi or pool on board.
In general a catamaran in Mykonos can host between 5 to 20 people, although 8-10 people are standard. This makes catamarans here the perfect size for a fun catamaran holiday in Mykonos with your closest friends or with your family.
The Greek island of Mykonos is blessed with nice weather almost all year round, making it the perfect destination for a catamaran holiday between the months of April and November, although the most popular months for tourists are July and August. If you prefer to sail with fewer crowds and save a bit of money while still enjoying the sun, a catamaran charter in Mykonos in September is the perfect choice.
A catamaran rental in Mykonos might not be the cheapest option you can find in the Mediterranean, but it certainly is one of the most beautiful ones. Starting from 6.700 EUR per week you can find a catamaran that allows you to sail with your closest friends - and don’t worry, you can always split the cost while enjoying a boat holiday on this exclusive island. While this is still pretty affordable, there are other options that come with a higher price tag and more luxury amenities. You would need to pay around 19.000 EUR for a week in order to rent a luxury catamaran like this in Mykonos. If you have the means to afford it, it’s definitely worth it.
Anyone who wants to rent a catamaran in Mykonos should know that they should be in possession of a valid boat license. The Greek authorities are very strict about it and you really don’t want to get caught without one. If you’re an EU-resident your boat license is automatically valid in Greece, if you’re coming from outside of the EU it might not be that easy. Before you embark on your trip ensure that your license fulfills the requirements of a Greek boat license. Also, if your boat license has been issued in a language other than English or Greek you need to have it officially translated to either of these languages before renting a catamaran in Mykonos.
If you don’t have a license or simply don’t want to operate the catamaran by yourself, you can always hire a skipper with Zizoo in addition to your bareboat charter.
