Captain George was raised and educated in
Australia and has over 30 years experience in skippering sea craft
around the Greek Islands and, is the creator of the sunset cruise in
its present form! His passion for the sea and tradition has lead him
to restore one of the most important boats that was used for
transportation of people and goods between the islands and the
mainland for centuries.
Welcome on Board the S/Y Eleftheria
It all started back in the early 90’s when he started BBQ cruises on
Santorini and various islands in the Aegean – reminiscent of the
Australian weekends of his youth. The boat is the S/Y Eleftheria, a
55-foot wooden built traditional Greek Kaiki -Trechandiri or working
boat, which nowadays are open museums and carry memories of a world
that is fading right in front of us.
We also cater for VIP tours,
private charters, sunset cruise and individual itineraries, BBQ
trips and full day tours around Santorini and the surrounding
Forget your motor powered plastic yachts that you can find anywhere in the world.
Go back to basics and you have yourself an adventure which is as pure and natural as the surrounding beauty itself.
Eleftheria was rebuilt in 2005 with a 15 meter mast, a long keel and
permanent flaps that make sailing a joy.
And as a wooden vessel demands,
she is annually cared, maintained and improved thus keeping her in
shipshape sailing condition.
Now ready, she awaits to give you the pleasure of cruising with her.
Eleftheria can accommodate from 2 to 22 passengers in style and comfort, with plenty of room for everyone to have the
space they need to either sit and enjoy sipping wine or lying back and
sunbathing on the top deck.
She is ideal for small groups, families and miscellaneous celebrations, for example: weddings, anniversaries, bachelor
or birthday parties, etc.

As we have found in our over 25 years
of professionally sailing in the
Aegean sea, most people on
holidays would like to spend quality
time some by getting involved with the sailing part of the trip, and
like to sit back, and enjoy the ride.
Arrangements are made to pick you from your hotel and transfer
you and your friends to Vlyhada (the small but colorful marina ).
Once aboard, and while having a welcome drink you can discuss the
details of your cruise.
With our long-time experience, we can fill you in on the small but
sometimes important details....
That can make a difference and together we will find what is the
best route to follow.
