Dodecanese

Luxury Yacht Charter Destination

With near perfect sailing conditions and a real flavour of the Orient, a luxury yacht charter in the Dodecanese islands will bring you great memories of some of the most beautiful and diverse islands in the Greek Aegean. The name Dodecanese literally means dodeca (twelve) and nisia (islands). The 12 islands in the chain are in the north-east Aegean and have changed hands several times between Turkish, Italian, German, British and Greek, as they ruled over the centuries.

Being a remote outpost of Greece, the islands have their own cultures that are often very different to that of the mainland Greece. You will find the pace of life distinctly laid back here and the locals are very welcoming to visitors whether at anchor or in port. While there are nightlife hotspots such as Rhodes and Kos, most of the Dodecanese islands are quiet.

The Dodecanese lie at the crossroads of civilisations - to the east you have Africa, Asia and the Orient, while to the west you have Europe and the United States. This has made many of the islands wealthy due to trading that has passed through along the Silk Road from China. Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Turkey and Greece have fought over the islands through the centuries, hence there is a great diversity in food, traditions and outlook amongst the people who live there.

The islands themselves are products of intense geological activity owing to the tectonic plates grinding beneath the surface. You can expect to see high mountains jutting out of the sea or even a live volcano surrounded by lush vegetation in the case of Nisyros. Don your snorkel mask or scuba dive kit and head below the waterline to discover all the treasures the Dodecanese has to offer.

Average temperatures can dip to a chilly 12 degrees in February, but hit a roasting 35 degrees or more at the height of summer. In the winter months, you will often find the sea warmer than the air, with water temperatures rarely getting below 17 degrees, all of which make the Dodecanese a perfect destination for a luxury superyacht adventure.
