Located in the Northern Sporades archipelago of Greece, the island of Skiathos is the ideal destination for your next yacht charter. Crystal-clear water, pristine beaches, impressive rock formations and lush pine forests are some of the beautiful landscapes that can be admired here. The island rose to fame in 2008 for being one of the prominent filming locations of Mamma Mia and by spending some time here, you will understand why this destination was chosen. It’s time to book a boat hire in Skiathos with Scansail to see all that is on offer.
Skiathos may only be 7.5 miles long and 4 miles wide, but this Sporades island is becoming one of the hottest destinations in Greece for your next boat trip. The island still remains off-the-beaten-path, meaning that you can enjoy some of the country’s most beautiful beaches without the crowds. Here are our favourite things to see and do with your yacht rental in Skiathos:
When you hire a yacht with Scansail, the price will depend on the type of boat you need, the season and duration of your charter, the number of people on board the vessel as well as any additional services that you may need. You can contact the boat owner via the internal messaging service on the Scansail website about any extras which are available. These extras can include water sports equipment.
You will also have the possibility of having a captain onboard your yacht rental in Skiathos. The skipper will be here to guide you to all of the best sailing destinations in the region and ensure that your holiday runs smoothly.
If you wish to discover Skiathos in style, we highly recommend a private yacht charter with a captain and a crew who will be here to tend to all your needs. Not only will they provide services such as cleaning and dining, but they will also guide you to the best destinations on the island and in the archipelago.
You also have the possibility of paying an APA (advanced provisioning allowance). This fee is paid before your trip and covers all additional expenses. With this option, you can enjoy your sailing holiday in a stress-free - and hands-free - environment!
Owing to Skiathos’ small size, the island is home to only two harbours: Skiathos Marina in the main town and the Koukounaries Harbour in the south of the island. Nevertheless, these harbours both offer excellent facilities for your boat hire and serve as a perfect base for sailing to the surrounding destinations.
The ideal location of the Green Island in the Aegean Sea allows visitors to soak up the sun at most times of the year. July and August are the warmest months on the island, but we recommend hiring a boat in Skiathos between April and June, or September and early November. During this period, the sailing conditions are perfect for your private boat and you can still swim in the crystal-clear waters which surround the island.
