Booking Procedure

In order to make the reservations as smooth as possible, we at have prepared the following guide to help you through the procedure of booking a sailing yacht or catamaran for your Greek holiday.


Please give us: your full name, dates or period required ports or sailing area desired, number in party or preferred type/size of the yacht and any special request you might have at this stage. Please note that departure & returns of charters are usually scheduled for Saturdays. Duration of charters is mostly 1, 2 or 3 full weeks. One-way charters are many times possible between charter bases in Greece, according to the availability planning, and generally apply to 14 or more days of charter and for yachts of 36 feet or bigger. The more information we get from you, the more appropriate choices we propose. Usually you can expect an answer within the same day. Very often our answer includes more than one available yacht, her equipment, prices and discounts - ALL to meet your requirements.


After you are informed about our available yachts and prices, and are really interested in one or more yachts, you should contact us so we can keep the yacht(s) for you for a while. In such a case we will keep one or at maximum two of the previously offered available yachts under option for a maximum period of 7 days. This means the boat is blocked for you for one week - until your final decision is made. If you do not confirm the booking during this period of time, this option will automatically be cancelled. Please note: In case the option is requested during the high season (end July - mid October) or if an option is requested a few days before the commencement of every charter, then the duration of the option is less than 3 days.


When you consider your booking fix and final, please confirm this in written to us by sending us the dates, bases, exact price, extras and other special requirements or useful information. We shall then reconfirm the booking immediately to you by giving you a charter code number reference. In your future correspondence, please always refer to the charter code. You will receive by mail the contract and all necessary payment and charter information. A hard copy can also be mailed to you if required.


We prefer emailing all papers but if you prefer to receive them by post mail it is all possible. Right after we provide you with our confirmation and charter code number reference, we will also mail you: 2 copies of the contract signed by us (Charter Party): One is for you, and the second one to be mailed back to after you have signed and completed your passport number and credit card details. Invoice/charter statement and costs analysis. An empty crew list for you to complete and forward back to us A blank provisioning list to complete (if you wish so) and forward back to Icarus Sailing To ensure we have all necessary documents for us we need to receive for each charter complete copies of the Skipper's and -if available- Co-Skipper's Certificate or Sailing resume.
