Welcome to Almyra. A Greek built motor-sailer yacht launched in 1971 by the infamous George Psarros in Perama. At nearly 13 meters length, 4.5 meters wide, and a gross weight of 24,000Kg (24 tons!), she is in a league of her own! Her excellent stability offers ideal cruising in Greek seas, safely and with grace. Throughout her history, she has sailed along the Aegean Regatta, has supported numerous sailing races, and offered unforgettable memories as a trusted family pleasure boat. Today, Almyra is still used by our family – but is also a professionally serviced, equipped, and manned as a charter yacht for day cruises. I began the ‘business’, because of my passion for the sea, my love of boats, and my entrepreneurial endeavor. My sea experience spans more than 40 years! As your captain, my role is to ensure that you have a safe, fun, and carefree day at sea - as I do for my family and our friends. Come and enjoy a personalized day at sea on Almyra. I am fluent in English, French and Greek; and, ashore, I am a certified life coach. Once on Almyra, I will ensure you are aware of the boat particulars and how best you can feel safe and at home. During your cruise, relax on deck (under the sun or in the shade), try your hand behind the wheel, sip your drink and listen to your music or the sound of the sea. This is the place to let go, and even nap to the rolling motion as we head towards our chosen destination. Swimming ladder, outdoor shower, blue tooth external speakers (loud), and unlimited free WiFi. Half and Full-Day cruises include fresh traditional Greek dishes, fresh fruit and local wine or tsipouro (let me know if you want a specialty alcohol). There is a dining table inside for 5 people, and another one outside for 6. Should you have specific nutritional preferences (gluten free, organic, vegan, or vegetarian) please contact me to discuss in advance. I aim to please; so it will be hard to run out of available stock on board during the day! Our full day cruise should last approximately 8 to 9 hours, returning before the final sunset. If you prefer a shorter, half-day cruise lasting approximately 4 hours, you can opt for afternoon or morning. For those who want to see Athens from-the-sea, a day cruise is ideal. There are a variety of trips you can choose from - including (not-so) secret beaches, picturesque bays and even uninhabited islets. Please contact me to discuss your preference, the weather forecast, and the hours of journey. Should you be interested in a longer, multi-day charter, let me know. Almyra can also be chartered for customized and exclusive events, such as a bachelor/ette getaway, an after-wedding honeymoon getaway, a team building retreat, or a surprise birthday or anniversary. The layout is ideal for a professional photo shoot for movies, marketing or fashion projects. You are not chartering just a boat - instead, you are embarking on an experience at sea on a historic boat and with an old seadog of a captain who can either leave you alone in your privacy to enjoy your cruise, or engage you in lengthy boat-talk! Most of all, I want you to have a great time! Whatever your interest is, being out at sea and on Almyra is a unique experience, which I look forward to making it happen for you. Get in touch with me, and see you on board Almyra; sooner rather than later! If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.

At the age of 50, I have 51 years of being passionate about boats, the sea, boating and sailing in Greek waters. ... I was at sea during my mother's pregnancy journeying on a 17m wooden boat from the UK to Greece through the canals of France. Throughout my boating life career, I have owned and operated numerous speed boats, a sailing yacht, a classic Bertram cruiser, a traditional Greek 1960 liberty (which I totally rebuilt) and now Almyra. I have, and continue to gain experience - my love and passion keep me open to learn - without ego - and to keep 'safety first' as my mantra. I transfer my passion to clients while ensuring their safety and enjoyment throughout the cruise.
