Odyssey Sailing… a trusted and reliable charter company!!!

I recommend Odyssey Sailing to everyone who dream to sail in safe conditions and to have a wonderful sea experience!

Remarkable Sailing Yacht CELENE, not only for the constructive qualities, well known for Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440, but especially for the exemplary cleanliness and the special conditions offered by the owners.

The involvement of Francesca Mansfield and the company`s staff in ensuring all the necessary conditions to enjoy a dream vacation is remarkable.

The skipper, Alexander Mansfield, although at the beginning of his career, stood out for the seriousness with which he approached all the challenges of the 7 days of travel.

See you next charter !!!

Return to life after COVID-19

In thirty years of rental, it is the first time that we have been entrusted with a boat with an endowment like that of Circe.
The kindness and availability of Alessandro, who delivered the boat to us, were the crowning glory of a perfect week, despite the little wind.

F. Pagani, Italy, chartered s/y Circe, Sun Odyssey 410, from Skiathos, 19 – 26 June 2021. 


Nikos was an amazing captain and so fun to travel with. He took us to some of the most incredible beaches we`ve ever experienced. We truly felt cared for. He worked very hard to give us every experience we asked for. We even had dolphins join us for 30 minutes one day. I would love to sail with him again.

Morfi was an excellent hostess. Her food was amazing! She worked very hard to provision the boat for us so that we had everything we needed when we arrived. She is a wonderful person, always cheerful and happy – so lovely to be around. Exceptional in every way.

We can`t wait to come back – maybe for two weeks next time. 🙂


Melissa chartered a Jeanneau 54 sailing yacht in the Ionian from Lefkas, with skipper and hostess in July 2021. 

“Our family had a magical experience during our sailing holiday in the Argo-Saronic Gulf thanks to Francesca at Odyssey Sailing.  She listened to my needs and gave me timely solutions to choose the best possible sailing experience, while smoothly navigating Covid related delays. The Dufour 48 was a perfect fit for our family of 8 plus a 2 person crew!”

“It was all good! From my point of view it all went off very well indeed – lovely boat, good sailing and nice people looking after us.”

Luke O`Neill chartered a Lagoon 420 from Corfu in July. 

“Amazing service and lovely person! Francesca and Paniagiotis are really great people to rent with. They’ve prepared everything before we arrived and helped us through port authorities. Their boat Sofia is a traditional Sun Odyssée really great for 2 people. Pan, gave us advice about good tavernas and places to visit, really helpful!”


Baptiste J. from France chartered s/y Sophia, Sun Odyssey 33, from Volos, with his fiancee in August 2021.

 Matt & Jen chartered s/y Idea! Fully crewed Lagoon 500 in September 2021, prior to their wedding in Italy. We wish them every happiness and hope they`ll come back soon!

Odyssey Sailing is a company I know since 2014 as I chartered by them for the first time. This company do charter their own (I would call it “Family-owned”) lovely yachts in Sporades as well as they do organize charters from other locations in Greece. In the latter case they also do only work with yacht owners who cares much about their services and condition of their yachts. Company (Co-)Founder and a direct contact Francesca has organized charters for me last years from multiple locations and the only experience I had working with them was really excellent! Some years ago, I even recommended Odyssey Sailing to one friend of mine and he was also completely impressed by the value for the money he got. Want to go for sailing in Greece and have a best experience ever? Go for Odyssey Sailing!

Serhiy K, from Germany

My husband and I charter with Odyssey Sailing since almost a decade. Different yachts, in different beautiful places (in Greece), with different crews. But only one thing remains unchangeable through the years: extremely professional and friendly Odyssey Sailing team, great quality, excellent service, safety, full confidence to this amazing people and pure satisfaction with our sailing vacation at the end.

Natalia K, from Ukraine

It was the second time I was on sailing tour organized by Odyssey Sailing. Amazing service, amazing people. Completely satisfied!

Our 4th time repeat guests once again chartered s/y Celene, Sun Odyssey 440 from Volos in September 2021. To say thank you for their loyalty, we gave them their own Celene t-shirts to keep. 

Hi Francesca!

The trip exceeded expectations. Kevin and Eva were amazing! We never wanted to leave the boat as Eva`s cooking was the best. And the boat was perfect. We had the space we needed and the water toys made the trip! We are actually thinking about next year again.

Thanks so much.


Dena and family chartered s/y Ozelo, Lagoon 50 (2021) from Corfu – Lefkas with skipper and hostess in August 2021. 

We had a great time the boat was smashing. The guys from the base were very helpful, Adonis did the handover quickly and comprehensively and we were on our way, much to the girls disappointment as he is very easy on the eye apparently!

We spent the first night in Methana there was loads of room when we arrived but it filled up fairly quickly, this proved to be the theme of the trip everywhere was extremely busy but we got in anywhere we wanted not everyone was as lucky. The last time we were in Mandraki there couldn`t have been more than a half dozen boats this time there must have been 40 or 50 anchored with stern lines. A metemi blew in late in the week so we thought discretion was the better part of valor and went back to Athens a day early just in case. 

We really enjoyed the week even if it did fly in. Thanks for your help in putting the trip together. 

Next time we will have to go to the lesser spotted Greece.

We will definitely contact you for our next trip.

Kind regards,


Dermot and family from Ireland, chartered s/y Antonios, Oceanis 51.1 from Athens, in September 2021. 


Rosemarie and friends, USA, chartered s/y Alice, Lagoon 46 catamaran, with crew, from Mykonos – Athens in September 2021
