According to the Greek sailing laws you need at least one official sailing license in order to take over a bare boat. As a sailing license, the port police recognizes any official paper from a sailing school, a yacht club or any relative organization, that has tested and can verify your ability to handle a sailing yacht. If your certificate, is issued by a country that is not a member of the European Union, it must be accompanied by a translation in Greek or English.
If you do not have such a qualification paper, a professional skipper will be provided to you to insure your safety and well being, with a standard fee per day. The charter company has the right as by the official charter contract, to ask you to prove your sailing abilities and knowledge by making a small round trip with one of our representatives on board. This test event is considered part of the charter period.
The price that you will pay for the charter is officially stated on your contract, which is approved by the Hellenic Ministry of Merchant Marine. The charterer of a yacht has further to pay for fuel, water, gas, mooring fees except the first and the last night as well the end cleaning fee. If you order of any additional extras, you will formerly be informed of their price. No extra charges will arise during your charter.
