Yacht Charter Dodecanese

The name 'Dodecanese' stands for the number twelve in the Greek language (dodeca). Book a Yacht Charter in the Dodecanese with Yacht4Less and set sail from one of the two main charter bases of Rhodes (the famous island of Kights) and Kos. A typical sailing itinerary includes unspoilt sailing destinations, such as Tilos, Nysiros - with the famous non-active volcano -, Symi etc. Furthermore, with the Turkish borders being just a couple of nautical miles away, you can make the most of both countries on a longer duration charter. There is a lot of history one can find while exploring the Dodecanese. Kos was the birthplace of Hippocrates' medical school, and in Rhodes, you can find the two bronze deer where the Great Colossus stood.

 Where can we start our Dodecanese sailing holidays from?

You can start from Kos island (Kos Marina) or Rhodes island (Mandraki Marina) - both are well served by their own international airports. Since these two islands are close to each other, you can combine a Kos and Rhodes itinerary, especially on a longer duration charter i.e. 2 weeks.

Transfer time (Kos): 30 mins

Transfer time (Rhodes): 30 mins


 Dodecanese sailing weather conditions

During summer and autumn, the prevailing wind is the "Meltemi", which can reach up to 6 Beaufort on a daily basis, and rarely 7 or 8. The Dodecanese is an ideal sailing destination for intermediate and advanced charterers who want to enjoy a "true sailing experience".

You should be careful when sailing off the leeward side of the islands, as the funneling phenomenon creates gusts much stronger than those in the open sea.

  • Yacht Charter Kos

    Kos

    Kos is one of Greece's Dodecanese islands, and her name derives from the daughter of the mythical King Meropas, called Koos. Kos is also the birthplace of Hippocrates, who is considered "the father of medicine". With a yacht charter in Kos, you can explore the Southeast Aegean, just off the coast of Turkey. Some of the highlights include the islands of Symi, Tilos, and Rhodes and the islands' sandy beaches, turquoise waters, ancient and medieval monuments as well as Venetian architecture are sure to impress even the most demanding of travelers.

  • Yacht Charter Rhodes

    Rhodes

    Rhodes, possibly the most famous of the Dodecanese islands, was once home to one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World - the Colossus of Rhodes – until an earthquake in 226 BC destroyed this artefact. Despite that, Rhodes, as well as the surrounding Dodecanese islands, is full of history and stunning archaeological landmarks, as well as Byzantine and medieval monuments. This region is also often referred to as "the sunniest corner in Greece" and the excellent sailing conditions and long passages between the islands make a yacht charter in Rhodes ideal for keen sailors and adventure seekers.
