I started sailing at the age of 12 with my grandfather. After an early, successful career racing in the Solent, my interest matured to coastal cruising in the eastern Mediterranean. Aramon is the second yacht that I have owned in the area because, along with the Caribbean, it offers the best sailing in the world.
The yacht is our home for 6 months of the year and the experience of sailing with the owners is quite unlike that of a conventional bareboat charter. You are our guests for the duration of the stay, and, we hope, our friends for life.
Our prices are very competitive because we occupy the for'ard cabin and this reduces the number of guests that we can accomodate. If you want a skippered yacht, we are very inexpensive because our price is low even by bareboat charter standards, and VERY LOW if you add in the price of hiring a skipper. We are however selective in whom we accept as guests.
We like good food and fine wine. We don't like crowds and try to go to places that are off the beaten track. In and around Athens that is not always easy. It is always tempting to head for the northern Cyclades rather the Saronic Gulf, but the Meltemi is a fearsome thing best avoided if blowing.
Extenisvely re-furbished this winter, with new bimini, custom cockpît cushions, cockpit lighting, and teak table, Aramon is very comfortable, and easy to sail. If you want to helm, go ahead! If you want to do nothing, that is absolutely fine. If you want to learn, we will do our best, but remember we are not professional instructors.
