We have just returned from a weeks bareboating on the Sun Odyssey 40 and had a really good holiday. The boat was built in 2002 and although in some ways it showed, everything important worked properly. The service received from Vasilis and Anna was very professional and they were a joy to deal with both prior to the holiday and during it. I have no hesitation in recommending them. Kevin Needham

We had the pleasure of renting a boat for two weeks from Vasilis and Anna who gave us exceptional service. This included purchase of provisions and telephone presence whenever we had a question during the cruise. While the boat was not top-notch - we were aware of this and we were a bit late on our reservation. So good advise - if you consider a sailing holiday in the wonderful surroundings of the Ionian Sea - you can definitely use Vrakotas Yachting - just make sure you reserve early! We had a great time....

We chartered a boat for a week through Vasilis Vrakotas. Using Vasilis meant we got personal service. He was easy to contact before hand, on hand when we got there and again when we returned. By the way, the boat was excellent and it had everything we needed. There is no better way to do this.

Мы брали у Василиса в чартер Sun Odissey 40 в июле 2010 на Корфу. Акватория для не сложного чартера очень удачная, много удобных стоянок, хорошая, оборудованная марина. Навигация не сложная, процесс получения и сдачи лодки не занял много времени, в случае возникновения вопросов Василис всегда на телефоне, порекомендовал нам хорошие дикие бухты для якорных стоянок. Огромная ему от нас благодарность и всем кто планирует вояж в Греции советую обращаться к нему.

I chose Vrakotas Yachting by doing a search on 'yacht charter Corfu'. I was rather nervous having previously chartered via an agency in the UK. My fears were entirely groundless. The booking was handled quickly and efficiently and all my questions were answered promptly. The boat was ready when we arrived and everything was in good order. Vasilis even arranged car hire for us on our last day. The level of personal service we received inspired great confidence and I would certainly book with them again.

We arrived at midnight to find the boat ready and waiting for our whole family (of nine). The boat was clean and in good nick. We had a fantastic week sailing and felt that if anything had gone wrong - sailing wise there was someone very willing and helpful on the other end of the phone. I would definately book through Vasilis again and would definately recommend him to others. Thank you. Madeleine Cardozo

Our family travelled from NZ to charter from Vrakotas Yacht Charter in the Ionian. We arrived in Corfu to find the boat beautifully prepared, well equipped and were greeted by a very friendly and professional team, lead by Vasislis. All charter matters were dealt with very efficiently and we were able to completely relax quickly into the cruise on the basis of such excellent service from Vrakotas. We would have no hesitation in repeating this charter experience with them.

I know Vasilis Vrakotas since he started his business 16 years ago. I think I was one of his first clients. From this time I chartered very often boats from his company. He offers a perfect, excellent service and boats in very good condition. The performance from Vrakotas-Yachting is a �one off� in the Ionian Sea. This year I will go to Corfu again and charter a boat from him. I would recommend Vrakotas-Yachting to all! Thomas Sauererssig, Germany

 Many thanks for our recent enjoyable charter. "Beautiful South", a 2007 45' Sun Odyssey was fully prepared, well equipped and presented.  Initial / Final Handovers were conducted efficiently and documentation was speedily processed by Vasilis and his friendly staff. We enjoyed 14 days of cruising around the beautiful Ionian Islands. Well done - we're already looking forward to our next trip to Corfu where we will definitely be Chartering with Vrakotas Yachting again.
