Sailing in the Greek Ionian 

bavaria yacht ownershipThe Ionian Islands are to the west of mainland Greece and are home to one of the Mediterranean’s most popular sailing destinations providing the perfect cruising ground for fun, relaxed and varied sailing. The Ionian has a wonderful Mediterranean climate with beautiful warm summers and the sun shines here for over 3000 hours a year!

The Ionian Region of Greece consists of three groups of islands: The central group of Ionian islands consists of Lefkas (Lefkada) with just a narrow sea canal separating it from the Greek mainland, and the fantastic cluster of smaller islands that surround it including Skorpios, Meganissi, Kalamos, Kastos, Skorpidi, Madouri, Sparti, Heloni, Thileia and Kythros. The central group of Ionian islands also includes the larger islands of Kefalonia, Zakynthos (Zante) and the much celebrated Ithaca (Ithaki). Further north, Corfu (Kerkyra) forms the most significant part of the northern group and is the administrative capital of the Ionian Islands Region. The northern group also includes the smaller Diapontia islands of Othoni, Erikoussa and Mathraki and the islands of Paxos and Antipaxos to the south.

To the east of the Ionian Islands stretches the western coast of Mainland Greece (Epirus). The ports of Parga,Sivota and Preveza;that nestle along these shores are washed by the same crystal blue waters of the Ionian Sea and share the same natural character and ambience of the islands making these towns and villages popular for visiting sailing yachts.

Maintaining your Yacht

Alina lifted out for the winter in November 2010Your yacht will be kept in the purpose built, secure marina complex all year round where she receives ongoing servicing and regular maintenance and checks all carried out and managed by ourselves. Through good preventive maintenance and regular servicing, cleaning and polishing you get the maximum enjoyment from your yacht whilst enhancing its resale value. She is lifted out of the water for the winter from the purpose built dock facility using a yacht travel lift and is returned again before the start of the summer.

We believe that owning a first class yacht requires first class mooring and winter storage facilities. The superb facilities at Lefkas marina ensure that your yacht will be kept in the best possible environment all year round which means you don’t have to worry about the perils of town quays and old boat yards.
