Hallberg-Rassy is widely considered to be one of the finest production yacht builders in the world. The Swedish yard has a very long history of building top-quality, heavy-displacement, sea-worthy yachts. This yacht is a professionally maintained and continuously upgraded Hallberg-Rassy 49, originally built with the rare 4-cabin layout and refit in 2017. Outdoors, the wide flush teak deck is perfect for sunbathing under the sun and the protected centre-cockpit is ideal for relaxing under its cool shade. Indoors, the spacious salon is comfortable for dining or watching movies and the long galley offers plenty of space to cook even the most elaborate meals. The heads have separate shower stalls and electric toilets. The boat is fully air-conditioned and fully-equipped with a rebuilt engine (2017), new generator (2017), new tender with outboard (2017), stand-up paddle board, snorkelling equipment and more.
Are you looking for a relaxed, comfortable and fun way to explore the most beautiful and authentic Greek islands? We will be sailing to a different destination every day to visit beautiful bays with clear waters, ideal for swimming, snorkelling and exploring, or simply soaking up some sun, listening to music and reading a book. At night we will usually remain at anchor to enjoy the atmosphere, have a drink and gaze at the starlit sky. We will also be visiting a few small, traditional and authentic towns to walk around and experience the local culture, cuisine and night scene.

I am an enthusiastic and experienced sailor, with a deep respect for the sea and a local knowledge of the Aegean and Ionian islands. From a young age, I have been participating in several water related activities, such as waterskiing, wake boarding, surfing, windsurfing, scuba diving, deepwater fishing, motor boating and sailing (both cruising and racing). Having collected significant theoretical and practical experience in many aspects of the yachting industry over the years (including providing business investment advice in the marine industry and offering exclusive yacht sales), I am now offering unforgettable, easy-going and laid-back cruises around the Aegean archipelago and the Ionian sea, as the skipper/owner of a comfortable and fully-equipped Hallberg-Rassy 49 sailing yacht, named Big Blue.
Usually this boat operates around Foinikas, GR.
With some of the most spectacular and famous vistas, the islands of Greece offer something for everyone.

These are just some of the incredible experiences awaiting you when sailing the Greek islands.
