Marinas in Athens
With 5 boat rental marinas, Athens is the charter yacht hub of the east Mediterranean, with thousands of monohull, catamaran and motor yacht options ready to explore the Greek islands on bareboat or skippered charter.
The iconic Athens bareboat charter base, Alimos marina is home to over 1000 charter yachts, and perfectly located for sailing holidays spent cruising the beaches of the Saronic Gulf. Also known as Kalamaki marina, Alimos has all sorts of yachts including sailing yacht, catamaran, and motor boat options.
One of the smallest marinas in the Athens region, set in a nondescript suburb and favoured by a large British charter provider. Zea marina is a small charter company marina within the port of Piraeus.
A short taxi ride from Europe’s oldest city, the marina is surrounded by good quality tavernas, provisioning is easy, and there is a maritime museum about 10 minutes walk from the dock.
Marina Delta Kallithea
A real outlier among several big, dirty and decrepit Athens marinas, the newly completed Marina Delta is an absolute joy to spend time in.
This clean, modern marina has great transport links to the city and airport (45 minutes away) thanks to a newly built road.
The modern facilities include a café, restaurant, opera house and cinema complex and even a maritime museum housed in an old warship. This is a surprisingly serene place to start and end a charter out of Athens.
Agios Kosmas marina
Originally constructed for the 2004 Athens Olympic Games, Agios Kosmas marina is a quiet specialist yacht charter base and home to one of the world's largest charter companies, who take up most of the berths on Saturdays.
It is a bit of a trek to the nearest bars and restaurants. Fuel is brought to the pontoon at the end of every charter.
