Sailing yacht Evi is a Lagoon 450 F crewed catamaran available to charter from Patras for cruises in the Southern Ionian islands of Greece. With 4 double en suite guest cabins, and 2 single separate crew cabins in the bows, the yacht is ideal for up to 8 guests.
When you charter s/y Evi, you are getting an all-inclusive package. Breakfast and lunch are included in the price, along with all the running expenses. The only extras are your evening meals ashore at a taverna and your personal expenses.
The crew consists of a professional skipper and a very talented hostess who will provide amazing meals!
The deck offers three different seating areas plus an area at the flybridge with sunbathing mattresses, so there is plenty of choice for everyone! Starting from the very top, there is a spacious flybridge where the steering wheel and all the controls for the sails are situated, but also a comfortable sofa with views all around. For those who like working on their suntan, just forward of the flybridge you will find large sunbathing mattresses.
The kids’ favorite place is of course the trampoline nets at the bow which become everybody’s favorite place when dolphins come to play underneath the boat. The foredeck sitting area comfortably accommodates 4 people, although at times everyone somehow manages to fit in here for a sunset cocktail!!
The aft seating area (also called cockpit) is really spacious with a nice sofa at the port side and a big mattress on the starboard side where you can relax during the day. The whole area is under the shade of the hard top and that’s where our breakfast and lunch is served, as there is a big table which can sit a group of 8.
The Lagoon 450 F has 2 sterns (the aft end of the deck) so at the port side you will find a wide swimming platform at sea level, with easy steps into the sea and equipped with a deck shower for rinsing after your swim. At the starboard side you will find a wide and solid hydraulic passarella (gangplank) for walking in and out of the yacht, when we are docked at the small harbors that we visit in the evenings.
From the aft sitting area walking through a sliding door you enter the spacious salon situated on the same level and offering 360 degree views, through its large windows. There is a comfortable sofa at the starboard side with a table that will accommodate 8 guests and the chart table at the forward end on the salon with all the instruments and controls of the yacht’s various systems. And of course this is where the heart of our cruises is, our well-equipped galley (kitchen) where delicious dishes are created, giving our cruises their gourmet edge – an advantage with crewed catamaran charter.
At the port side of the salon, you can walk down a few steps to access the 2 very spacious port side cabins, each with a large double/twin bed and a comfortable bathroom with a separate shower cubicle. Similarly, at the starboard side of the salon, walking down the few steps you access the 2 starboard cabins that are identical to the port cabins in every way. The two ensuite crew cabins are situated at the bows of the catamaran, each with its own access from the fore deck.
One of the most important features of our Lagoon 450 F is the air-conditioning, as it makes a difference for everyone’s comfort to keep the interior at a very pleasant temperature during the hottest months of the summer. All the cabins as well as the salon are fully air-conditioned and although during the daytime everyone is cooling down in the sea, the air-conditioning makes all the difference for a good night sleep (or for those who like their afternoon siesta!).
On the practical side of things, there are 2 powerful Yanmar engines of 57HP each, giving a cruising speed of 8 knots. They are supplied by 2 diesel tanks that have a capacity of just over 1000 liters. The water tanks hold 1000 liters of fresh water and are constantly topped up by our yacht’s water-maker (desalinator).

On Sunday evening you will be welcomed onboard your yacht by the crew with a refreshing cocktail. After showing you around the yacht and your cabin you will have time to settle in, before continuing a bit later with a short safety briefing. We will then all sit around in the salon enjoying some mezes (Greek tapas) and bubbly wine, while looking at the itinerary on the chart and getting to know each other. As our first night will be at the port of Patras, you can later go for a stroll and explore the town’s pedestrian streets or just relax on the yacht.
During your cruise with us we will explore the beautiful central Ionian Islands of Greece spending each night at a different harbor, finally returning to Patras on Sunday morning for disembarkation at 10 a.m. after breakfast.
