We have just finished a magnificent week on the Waterlily catamaran. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left I can’t say enough about the staff and especially our skipper Giorgio. We are a party of 3 couples with plenty of room on our vessel.Giorgio was fantastic and made our trip one to remember forever. Not only did we sail safely Giorgio took us to beautiful destinations explained where we were and told us some history as well. He looked after all our restaurant bookings on the islands , checked with us constantly if we needed anything and even booked massages for us in the most amazing setting in Kioni on Ithaca island. Truly beautiful. Thank you Giorgio and thank you also Evita (Giorgio’s girlfriend) who we had the pleasure of meeting back in the office when we returned.I have no hesitation recommending this wonderful company, Manos yachting , if you too want a magical experience.

My friends an me have been chartering yachts from Manos for many years, and always were happy to get such well maintained yachts for our sailing experience. The service is perfect and extraordinary friendly. I strongly recomend Manos Yachting to all skippers, who want to sail in the Ionian Sea.Thomas R.

Our family had an incredible experience with Manos Yachting in Lefkada, Greece. From the moment we stepped on board our sailing boat, we knew we were in for a memorable adventure.The team at Manos Yachting was warm and professional, ensuring everyone felt comfortable and excited for the journey ahead.The sailing boat was impeccably maintained and equipped for a family-friendly voyage. Our captain (Giorgio) was skilled sailor , enriching our experience with his knowledge of the area.Booking with Manos Yachting was easy, with prompt communication and transparent pricing. They listened to our preferences and crafted an itinerary tailored to our family's interests.We highly recommend Manos Yachting for families looking for an unforgettable sailing experience in Lefkada. Their dedication to service and hospitality sets them apart, and we're already looking forward to our next adventure with them.

The Best of the Best, for those who know how to evaluate an extraordinary sailing experience in Greece. Overqualified personnel, human approach attitude all the way from first email contact till final check out, and most importantly they invest every year to maintain their fleet in excellent condition... As per the tidyness and aesthetics inside the boats.... "Pearls" of ocean blue ! 💙💙💙

We had a lovely time during our sailing trip! Can't recommend them more. Despite the bad weather our skipper Giorgio took us to a nice beach with good weather and was very helpful! We will return again next year!!

Excellent staff! They are really friendly and accommodating. Our flight was delayed, and they made sure we could do the check in later. We had a lovely time at the Ionian Sea! We will visit again next year.

One of the best charters I've ever had. The yacht was exceptionally equipped and impeccably maintained. Not a single deficiency, just as it should be!

Manos yachting provides the perfect combination of engagement of a small family run business with the professionality of a well-run charter company in this competitive business in the Ionian area.Isodoros and Evita have been very friendly and helpful , way beyond what you can expect from a charter company!We rented their ship Izzy for 2 weeks and have not encountered any flaws on board. Everything worked well. They set the standards high when it comes to maintenance and equipment on board. And they kept in contact with us during our trip to check if everything was still ok, and even with weather forecasts!!I really recommend this company for a pleasant and a carefree sailing experience, and will definitely book another trip with them.Dear Evita and Isidoros, I am more than happy to write this review for you!! Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday on board Izzy!!! It was our pleasure to enjoy and take care of your boat!!

Excellent service all along from a family run business with great track record and experience. Immaculate condition of boat and fully equipped for safe navigation and anchorage under any conditions in or out of port. Only hope to charter one of their boats soon again and would recommend them without any reservation.

We had such a seamless service and experience with Evita booking and organising our yacht. Leo was our wonderful captain who joined our family for a few magical days around Ithaca, fiscardo and kefalonia. It was the perfect way to see Greece. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Isidoros and Evita the brother and sister who run this long established family firm are the best people we have chartered a yacht from in our 30+ year experience of renting boats across the world. Charming, helpful and a deep desire to give you the best possible holiday shines through in everything they do. The yacht itself was in immaculate condition and full of extra touches that made sailing a joy - from extra 50m of chain to a second windlass controller by the helm. Inside again lots of extra thoughts from three ways to make coffee to extra batteries so never a worry in going short or having to run the engines to charge them. We recommend them 100%.

We have now chartered at Manos for the third time in a row. And although one or two of our crew have already thought about giving up sailing for a while - if it's up to us, we will do it again with Manos next year.Why? Because everything is just right here!Evita, Isidoros and the whole team are always so irresistibly warm that we had the impression that we were the only guests here and that they were there just for us. Where else do you find something like? And our yacht too: always in top condition, as good as new.P.S.: For the first time this year we broke under sail the 10 kn barrier three times . Wow!

Where do I start? Where do I start trying to describe what turns out to be a trip of a lifetime? Well…I can start by saying I’ve gone four times now. As with any service business you can determine their quality by the amount of repeat business. I’m writing this review to try to allow you to visualize what very few fortunate people have been able to accomplish in their lives, and that is sailing the Greek Islands. I’ve been going to Greece for a little over ten years now as I have customers in Athens. About eight years ago my customer suggested we rent a boat with a skipper and sail the islands. As this is one of everyone’s bucket list items how could I say no?!? We wound up chartering a boat from Manos Yachts with Antonis as our skipper. I cannot fully describe the experience sailing with Antonis without writing a review the size of War and Peace…but let me try...I’ve only been on a chartered boat once before in the Caribbean and my only issue with it was what to do with the captain. Do we invite him for dinner when we dock? Do we take him out for lunch? Etc.. Probably the best part of sailing with Manos and Antonis (besides being with my wife and friends) was the relationship we formed with Antonis. This is THE guy. Not only is he a superb captain nautically speaking but he is a walking teddy bear that you kinda want to hug all the time. I know it sounds weird, but we could not have asked for a better person to guide us through the many islands of the Ionian Sea. Its an amazing adventure, which you also are the captain of. If you want to learn how to sail he will show you, if you want to sit on the bow and soak up rays, he is there with a cushion for you. Its just unbelievable. And there is no set schedule, if you want to see a particular island he’s on it. As for us we load up with groceries in the port (Lefkada) where Manos yachts departs from and we’re eating and drinking by the time were out of the no-wake zone. We have one spot we go to every time which is a beach bar which we access from the dingy while the boat is anchored at sea. After that we put the trip into Antonis’s hands, pull the hats over our eyes and take a nap while listening to the wind and the ocean. At night we dock in a port, have a great dinner and stock up again in the morning. It’s a beautiful 24 hours that we get to have over and over again.We have sailed on two of their boats, Evita and Henk which are both Jeanneaus. We typically sail with three couples and we sailed Evita twice and Henk twice. I like having the extra room Henk affords as it’s a 54’ boat so I would suggest if you are going with three or four couples and Henk is available go for the extra size. If not, no biggie just make sure you like who your sailing with! Close quarters on a 49 footer. By the way I’ve met both his sister and brother over the years and they are equally huggable (Evita more so), Evita runs the office and Antonis’s brother is another skipper. And as a side note just so you know I’m not blowing smoke…My wife Ali and I invited Antonis to our Wedding in Miami and he has also stayed with us at our house in New York. Life long friends now…I’m happy to answer any questions you may have. My contact details are available from Manos.I hope this review sheds some light on the character and quality of Manos Yachts and the family that runs it. And I truly hope it leads you to the docks of Lefkada one day.Sage P.
