Odyssey Sailing - About us
Odyssey Sailing was originally established
in the 1980's as Golden Jason Yachting* by my husband Panos
and other professional yacht owners in the area as the first and only
charter agency based in Volos, mainland Greece, with direct access
to Skiathos and the Sporades islands, Evia, the gulf of Volos and
northern Greece. In 2000 we decided it was time for the business to
evolve into a charter agency aimed at Internet users. We re-opened
as Odyssey Sailing and have been growing ever since.
Odyssey Sailing is an official charter agency licensed by EOT - The Greek Ministry of Tourism, and a member of the Hellenic Yacht Brokers Association.
As boat owners ourselves we know what makes a quality yacht and what is needed for a superb holiday. We have always aimed to greet all our guests with a personal service that ensures memorable sailing holidays. With a wide network of professional yacht owners, technicians and sailors all over the Greek islands, support is always on hand should anyone need it.
We work directly with yacht owners all over Greece. All yachts are individually cared for and maintained by their owners or experienced and professional technical staff. No large fleet operators offering the minimum in equipment for speedy hand-overs, etc. You will receive personal attention and service. We have taken care to ensure that each yacht meets up to our criteria of quality and good value.
We hope to maintain a personal contact with all of our customers, and we hope to help you find the ideal sailing yacht for your needs. We hope to reach out to people of all nationalities, from all backgrounds, with all levels of sailing experience, and to offer you an unforgettable sailing holiday, that you will long to repeat. We would love to include your thoughts, comments, and photographs on our site in the future. We will try to meet you when you arrive to make sure that you are happy, comfortable and that you have everything you need. After all, the Greeks have a reputation for good hospitality, that we have to live up to.
I am open to suggestions, comments, feedback. Please
Francesca, Volos, 2001
