Welcome aboard the S/Y Eleftheria

 Eleftheria   ( EL EF THE RIA )   means - freedom - liberty  -  independence  

Eleftheria is a "One of a kind Trechandiri" a boat of a small aft entrance angle, the traditional wooden boattthat has been sailing the Aegean waters for as long as anyone remembers.
The shape of the forward keel is very curvy, almost circular.
The ratio of overall length to average breadth at main deck is 3:1.

She was originally built in England by a English boat builder who - as we have found, lived in Mytilini, (the capital of the island Lesvos) sometime in the sixty's.
After studying the technique he bought wood and transferred it to England where the "Eleftheria" was built.
At some time, the boat sailed back to the Aegean and was rebuilt with a 15 meter mast, a long keel and permanent flaps that make sailing a joy.   

Now ready, she awaits to give you the pleasure of cruising with her.

We are proud of our heritage and we believe we should share it 


I am Captain George and I was raised and educated in  Australia.
I have over 25 years experience skippering sea craft around the Greek Islands.
Our boat is the S/Y Eleftheria,  a 55-foot wooden built traditional Gree “Kaiki”  or working boat.
The design is based on craft sailing the Aegean for over 2,500 years.
This unique design offers comfort and space and the perfect
sailing structure for the Aegean which has not been improved upon since the ancient Greeks mariners first sailed these waters.

Our policy is to work directly with you, the client and avoid the “middle-man” keeping the quality high and the cost as low as possible to your advantage.

Eleftheria was completely refurbished in 2005 and as a wooden boat demands, every year after that !!

 S/Y  Eleftheria

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.
We also cater for VIP tours, Private charters, Sunset cruise and
individual itineraries, BBQ trips and full day tours around Santorini
and the surrounding Islands.
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 some, just like to sit back and enjoy the ride.
Eleftheria can accommodate both of these passions !!!!

Santorini's  Caldera

Sailing with a traditional wooden boat is a pleasure that few people experience!

Santorini with its unique Caldera can be explored with a half day  cruise.
There is enough time to visit and swim at the famous Red and White beach the Hot Springs and the south bay on the volcano, where food is usually served and later, cruise into the Caldera looking up at Fira, Imerovigli and the old port.

A whole day sailing will take us as far as the island of Thirasia and the

north part of Santorini to the beautiful town of Oia and the gulf of Armeni.
