Chartering in the East Mediterranean


Operating in the East Mediterranean

Daphne’s Smile is a perfect combination of classical elegance, safety, sportiveness and comfort.  Α Swan 55 designed by Olin Stephens and built by Nautor Finland in 1971. Her sleek elegant lines, spacious deck and rather low freeboard bring her closer to the wooden classics of the past than the modern high raised sailing yachts of today. Her hull is fast, seaworthy and with a caring motion in the sea.

The moment you step aboard Daphne’s Smile your holiday has started and life’s stresses are already far away.  Dimitri, the skipper, has been in the business for 30 years and is great at understanding what is best for each party and together, with his crew, puts all his effort to make your trip special, with the daily itinerary customised for each group.

For the sailing fan there is plenty to get involved in and do; there are 2 spinnakers, 3 headsails and most of the racing gear always on board. You are encouraged to steer the yacht and handle the sails as if it were your own, but then when anchored you have nothing to worry about. Your crew will set the awnings and you can enjoy your meals which will be served either on the deck table just aft of the mast, or in the sheltered cockpit.

For guests that prefer a more relaxing holiday, your crew will sail the yacht in a fast, comfortable way to take you from one great spot to another choosing a route that makes this possible with the prevailing winds, in the Aegean usually going southwards and disembarking in a different island. 

It is not unusual to get served the catch of the day, be it tuna, grouper, or oysters for appetisers. And at least one BBQ on the beach is a must for every charter.
