Sailing Yacht Cruise from Trogir down to Makarska. Then starts your sailing voyage passing the beautiful islands of Hvar, Korcula, Vis and Brac before finishing your sailing adventure in Trogir again. Note: the exact cruise plan of sailing yachts is never present, due to weather conditions.., that's sailing!

Overview

Trogir – Makarska – Hvar – Korcula – Vis – Brac – Trogir

Combine the best of two worlds – an authentic sailing experience on large sailing yachts – without the pressure of fixed routings, and the comfort and service of a cruise.

We merge the best of the world of sailing with the world of traditional cruises. Authentic and individual sailing, just as if you had chartered your own yacht, is combined with the attentive and caring service of our professional crew and the comfort of a cruise ship.

Thereby, we do not follow a strict routing during the mostly one-week sailing cruises, but go by wind, weather and the desires of our guests. Hence, if the wind is good, we may sail even a little into the night, accompanied by a breathtaking view of the stars above…

And if the wind is calm, we just find the closest bay and enjoy a refreshing swim, go snorkelling or take a stroll on the beach.., pure seafaring, far from the mass tourism of large cruise liners.

Whenever possible, we actually set sails, but only for about 4-7 hours a day. In the remaining time there is plenty opportunity to take a swim right off board, to go on an individual excursion to the shore and get to know the country and its people, and much more…

Kairós

In Greek mythology, Kairós symbolizes the ‘perfect moment’ one has to seize right when it comes by.

That said: Welcome on Board!

The sketch of Kairós follows the drawings of classic sailing schooners in the 20’s of last century. Those were glorious times of legendary sailing vessels, when famous designers like William Fife from Scotland, Charles E. Nicholson from England or John Alden and Nathanael Herreshoff from the US created yachts of unequalled elegance and style.

Following these traditions Kairós was built with a hull of steel and all finishing’s in teak and mahogany. The designers choose to avoid larger superstructures on deck in order to create as much free space as possible.

Kairós is very fast and seaworthy. With the light and middle winds and even under engine, she already reaches a speed of 10 kn. Kairós can easily tack against the wind and even the sails don’t need to be reduced up to 6 Beaufort. Sailing with the Kairós is a true experience!

Kairós can accommodate a maximum of 16 guests in 6 cabins of est. 11m² with double beds (all with their own bathroom) and 2 cabins of  est. 9m², one with bunk beds and one with a double bed (all with their own bathroom). A crew of at least 7 cares for the operation of the vessel and the well-being of the guests.

The three ships of Sailing-Classics; Chronos, Kairós and Rhea are all classified under the CCV-Code (Commercial Cruising Vessel) and sail under Dutch flag. They have a 2-mast-ketch rigging as well as an optimized keel and hull to further improve their sailing performances.

The Chronos has a hull length of 48m (overall length 54m) and a width of 9.70m. A total sail area of est. 990m². On deck there is an aft helm stand and an outside seating area as well as a saloon with bar. The entrances to the cabins are in a second decks house, where also the ship’s office and an interior helm stand are located.

The Kairós has an overall length of 38m. and a width of 8.2m. A total sail area of est. 556m². She has a large teak deck with plenty of space for sunbathing and relaxing. Up to 16 guests may take breakfast, lunch or dinner under the sun roof next to the deckhouse with steering stand and bar. Below deck there is a large saloon with plenty of space for meals and meetings.

The Rhea has a hull length of 48m (overall length 54m) and a width of 9.70m. A total sail area of est. 990m². On deck there is an aft helm stand and an outside seating area as well as a saloon with bar.

The Mediterranean, The Adriatic, Luxury Mediterranean Voyage: Athens (Piraeus) to Venice
Fare from € 5.840
<read more>
Travelroute
Day 1

Athens (Piraeus)

Piraeus, roughly translating to “the place over the passage”, is an important Greek port located within the Athens agglomeration, in the Attica Basin. It is 12 kilometers from the municipality of Athens, considered the fourth largest and is the third most populous amongst all the municipalities of Greece. Now a peninsula, Piraeus, originally a rocky island, was developed in early 5th Century B.C. when it was initially designated as Athens’ import and transit trade port. It is the largest marine-based shipping center of Greece, one of the largest ports in Europe, and considered the second largest passenger port in the world. Inhabited since the 26th Century, it wasn’t until the 6th Century B.C. that Piraeus began catching attention. The land of Piraeus was essentially impassable, flooded by the sea most of the year until centuries passed and the flooding ceased. By the 5th Century B.C. it became a navy base for the Athenian fleet for the natural harbors and the strategic potential they carried. Athenian general and politician Themistocles fortified Piraeus’ three harbors Kantharos, Zea and Munichia, created ship houses and completed his walls in 471 B.C., which led to the port becoming a great military and commercial harbor. There are many archaeological sites, points of interest and entertainment available in Piraeus. Most famous for its tavernas and cuisine, several popular events take place in Piraeus, such as the Ecocinema International Film Festival, the Maritime Festival, the Piraeus Rock Wave Festival and the Three Kings’ Way Festival. There are also many theaters, including the Municipal Theater, the open air Veakeio Theater, and the Menandreio Theater. Museums in Piraeus include the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, the Merchant Shipping History Institute Exhibition, the Panos Aravantinos Decor Museum, the Georgios Averof Museum Ship and the Museum of Electric Railways. Be sure to catch the panoramic views available from the hill of Kastella, overlooking Athens and the Saronic Gulf!

Day 2

Syros

The small island of Syros offers the quintessential Greek island holiday experience without the crowds often found in the more well-known Greek Isles. With pristine blue waters, Syros’ breathtaking beaches are sure to impress. Kini, Vari, Azolimnos and Yalissás Beach are among its most famous options to bask in the sun. Beyond its beautiful beaches, Syros is part of the Cyclades, an island group in the Aegean Sea, and is filled with culture and history. The island is also commonly recognized for its Aegean cuisine which features several local specialties, making Syros a culinary destination.

Day 3

Corinth Canal (Transit) to Itea (Delphi)

So narrow! So dramatic! You'll understand why SeaDream says "expect the unexpected" as your yacht transits the Corinth Canal. The canal was first completed in 1893, despite previous attempts from ancient times; the first plans being from 602BC. The Roman Emporer Nero actually started construction in 67AD, making the first cut himself with a golden pick. The canal we transit is 6.3 kilometres (3.9 mi) in length. Before the canal, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic had to circumnavigate the Peloponnese Peninsula adding about 185 nautical miles to their voyage.
Itea is a small town situated on the north coast of the Gulf of Corinth, 2 km west of Kirra, 8 km southwest of Delphi. The town has a nice beach along with some shops, cafes and restaurants. It allows the closest access to the incredible sight of Delphi which is within the top three archeological attractions in Greece and in 1987 was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage Site. It is believed the Zeus wanted to find the center of the Earth so he sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities and where they met was Delphi – becoming the “navel/center of the earth”. SeaDream has arranged the very best guides and vehicles from Athens to enhance this incredible visit further. Your guided visit highlights the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, where Pythia, the celebrated Oracle dwelt, the Temple of Apollo, the Sacred Way, the amphitheater, the best-preserved stadium of Greece, and the Castalia Spring, where in ancient days the pilgrims had to wash before they were allowed to consult the Oracle. In the Delphi Museum, see such treasures as the Omphalos, which marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. After the museum, there will be free time to visit the village of Delphi. SeaDream has the option of docking along the small pier in Itea or anchoring off to provide water sports options. This is dependent on availability as well as a number of guests visiting the archeological site.

Day 4

Corfu

Corfu is the second largest Greek island in the Ionian Sea and considered to be the greenest. The municipality includes the island Corfu and the smaller islands of Ereikoussa, Mathraki and Othonoi. Its Greek name, Kerkyra or Korkyra, is related to two powerful water symbols: Poseidon, god of the sea, and Asopos, an important Greek mainland river. In 2007, the island's old town was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. SeaDream docks at the cruise port and offers guests an assortment of varied Land Adventures. A shuttle bus will be arranged to the old town, and the mountain bikes will be available for independent exploration. Perhaps the most popular attraction on the island other than the impressive old town is the Achillion Palace the summer palace of Austria’s Empress Elizabeth. It truly is worth exploring.

Day 5

Kotor

Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by an impressive city wall built by the Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence remains dominant among the architectural influences. In 1979 the Bay of Kotor, City of Kotor and the surrounding territory have been listed in the UNESCO Heritage as a Cultural Site. SeaDream usually navigates close by the small islands of St. George and Our Lady of the Reef. The Bay of Kotor stretches 28 km and is one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. It is sometimes called the southern-most fjord in Europe (though it is actually a submerged river canyon called a ria). SeaDream typically docks steps away from the town. SeaDream has arranged a few different Yachting Land Adventures. One of them is a walking discovery and the other will show you the heritage and countryside of Montenegro. For the active guests, there’s incredible biking along the coast as well as a hike up to the fortress. On occasion, SeaDream may dock in the bay and tender directly to the town. We regret that watersports are not allowed in this protected area.

Day 6

Kotor to Dubrovnik, Old Town

Day 7

Dubrovnik, Old Town to Korcula

Korčula may be the actual birthplace of Marco Polo! This is an island in the Adriatic Sea, in Southern Dalmatia and is considered by our guests as one of their favorites. One activity offered sells out every time so book early the Buggy Safari. As SeaDream typically anchors off Korcula expects the water toys to be used from the marina platform. As the island is relatively flat, this is a great biking destination as well.

Day 8

Korcula to Hvar

Hvar is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. The island of Hvar is somewhat unusual as it is blessed with a large fertile coastal plain and fresh water springs. Its hillsides are covered in pine forests, with vineyards, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields in the agricultural areas. The climate is characterized by mild winters and warm summers with many hours of sunshine. Guests have an option to kayak down the coastline on one of our land adventures or take an independent hike up to the fortress to have some incredible views of the picturesque harbor. You also have an option to bike across the island to Starigrad and meet up with the other guests on the land adventure called “The best of Both Worlds".

Day 9

Hvar to Vis Island

This island holds a host of accolades from being the oldest town in Croatia and hosting the oldest regatta in Europe, to featuring some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. With a picturesque coastline, it is easy to see why Vis was selected as the backdrop for the 2018 feature film “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.” The farthest inhabited island off the Croatian mainland, Vis has an interesting cultural heritage after being secluded from foreign visitors up until the late 1980s. This history of isolation has been key in keeping the island pure, making Vis an ideal destination for those seeking authenticity.

Day 10

Rovinj

Rovinj is a popular tourist resort in Croatia situated on the north Adriatic Sea. It is situated on the western coast of the Istrian peninsula and remains as one of the last true fishing ports. SeaDream has arranged some unique land adventure options including; Porec, a Touch of History, Culture & The Family Tradition of Wine Making, and the very popular Searching For Truffles in the Countryside. SeaDream is scheduled to anchor to offer water sports activities from the marina (Permission and conditions pending).

Day 11

Piran to Venice

Piran may be the most beautiful of Slovenia's coastal towns. It is perched on a tiny piece of land jutting into the sea. It has the feeling of being more like an Italian coastal town, without all the tourists. Piran was part of the Venetian empire from the late 13th century to the end of the 18th century and also had some influence from Austria-Hungary Empire.
Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals". Luigi Barzini, writing in The New York Times, described it as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man". Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities. Founded in the 5th century, the city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic. In 1987 Venice and its Lagoon was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage site. SeaDream typically docks at the San Basilio pier after navigating by the famous St. Mark’s Square down the grand canal. With its yacht stature, SeaDream vessels are amongst the very few commercial vessels that can navigate this famous waterway. SeaDream does offer Land Adventures when overnighting. You can also contact our destination specialists should you need a private arrangement, transfer or hotel recommendation.

The Mediterranean, The Adriatic, Exclusive yachting – Athens (Piraeus) to Venice
Fare from € 5.777
<read more>
Travelroute
Day 1

Athens (Piraeus), Greece

Athens is the cradle of the Western democratic tradition, home to a civilization as radiant as any before or since. Feel the pulse of history as you climb to the hilltop Acropolis, home to some of the city’s most renowned ancient sites. Gaze in amazement at the massive columns of the Parthenon, Pericles' greatest monument. Admire the little Temple of Nike and the fantastic carvings of the caryatids that support a porch of the Erechtheion. At the bottom of the hill, the Acropolis Museum includes original statues of the maidens and numerous other artifacts unearthed here. Equally outstanding is the National Archaeological Museum, one of the largest in the world. In the Agora, you can walk in the footsteps of Plato and Aristotle, carry on an imaginary dialogue with Socrates and discover where Hippocrates healed and Pericles ruled. Then for lighter fare, savor the lively tavernas and twisting lanes of the Plaka neighborhood.

Day 2

Sailing Time

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board. Enjoy a workout with a view at the gym, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, watch the sky transform at sunset from The Observation Lounge, or find an intimate alcove in The Living Room and lose yourself in a favorite book.

Day 3

Corfu, Greece

History oozes from every corner of Corfu, an island prize coveted by a succession of maritime powers since the Peloponnesian War in the 4th century BC. But who can blame them? This Ionian idyll is the greenest of all Greek islands, swathed in orange and olive groves and endless beaches bathed by a cerulean sea. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Old Town of Corfu includes the magnificent Esplanade, where you can watch a game of cricket from a sidewalk café. There are also beautiful palaces, castles and archaeological sites to explore. Empress Elizabeth of Austria built the gorgeous Achillion Palace for her summer home, while the former Greek royal family used to vacation at Mon Repos. And don’t miss the lovely beaches of Paleokastritsa, where Odysseus was washed ashore.

Day 4

Kotor, Montenegro

Simply arriving in Kotor is an unforgettable experience. One of the world’s most breathtaking waterways, the fjord-like Bay of Kotor follows a winding path through the forested mountains that rise on all sides of the sparkling sea. Nestled along the most inland cove are the coral-tiled roofs of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Fortified during Venetian rule, medieval ramparts surround the Old Town, where visitors will find historic landmarks such as the 12th-century Cathedral of St. Tryphon and the Maritime Museum. The physically fit should climb the 1,350 steps to clifftop St. John’s Fortress for gorgeous views of the town and the bay. A more leisurely option would be a boat tour to the unique Our Lady of the Rocks Church, situated on a tiny manmade islet, or a drive to the charming medieval town of Budva.

Day 5

Kotor, Montenegro to Dubrovnik, Croatia

It was George Bernard Shaw who famously described Dubrovnik as “the pearl of the Adriatic” and recommended that “those who seek paradise on Earth should come … and see Dubrovnik.” Coral-tiled roofs and a backdrop of green hills contrast sharply with the spectacular blue of the Adriatic Sea. Thick medieval walls wrap around beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Dubrovnik is truly amazing, and it’s no wonder this UNESCO World Heritage site played a central role in TV’s popular Game of Thrones. Be sure to take a walk along the city walls. No matter how many times you’ve been to Dubrovnik, you can’t help being inspired by the ancient ramparts that survived sieges by countless invaders for centuries and still stand proudly today.

Day 6

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Day 7

Venice, Italy

One of the most enchanting cities in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Venice rises from a lagoon on more than a hundred tiny islands linked by the iconic network of canals. A romantic gondola ride provides the perfect introduction to the city, gliding underneath the Ponte di Rialto – the oldest and most famous of Venice’s hundreds of bridges – and past the ornate palaces lining the Grand Canal. The power and wealth of the Venetian empire are on display at Piazza San Marco, the city’s most splendid square, where stands the grand St. Mark’s Basilica and the Gothic-style Doge’s Palace. Priceless art collections vie for attention, including the Italian masters in the Gallerie dell’Accademia and the modern works of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Some of the world’s most talented glassblowers showcase their wares on the island of Murano, while the colorful shops of Burano are home to artisan lace makers.

Travelroute
Day 1

Venice

Venice has been known as the "Queen of the Adriatic", "City of Water", "City of Masks", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and "City of Canals". Luigi Barzini, writing in The New York Times, described it as "undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man". Venice has also been described by the Times Online as being one of Europe's most romantic cities. Founded in the 5th century, the city stretches across 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon along the Adriatic. In 1987 Venice and its Lagoon was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage site. SeaDream typically docks at the San Basilio pier after navigating by the famous St. Mark’s Square down the grand canal. With its yacht stature, SeaDream vessels are amongst the very few commercial vessels that can navigate this famous waterway. SeaDream does offer Land Adventures when overnighting. You can also contact our destination specialists should you need a private arrangement, transfer or hotel recommendation.

Day 2

Trieste to Koper

Trieste is a city and seaport in northeastern Italy. It is situated towards the end of a narrow strip of Italian territory lying between the Adriatic Sea and Slovenia, which lies almost immediately south and east of the city. Trieste is located at the head of the Gulf of Trieste and throughout history it has been influenced by its location at the crossroads of Latin, Slavic, and Germanic cultures. In 2009, it had a population of about 205,000[1] and it is the capital of the autonomous region Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trieste province. Trieste is a city in North-East Italy. Once a very influential and powerful centre of politics, literature, music, art and culture under Austrian-Hungarian dominion, its importance fell into decline towards the end of the 20th century, and today, Trieste is often forgotten as tourists head off to the big Italian cities like Rome and Milan. It is, however, a very charming underestimated city, with a quiet and lovely almost Eastern European atmosphere, several pubs and cafes, some stunning architecture and a beautiful sea view. It was also, for a while, the residence of famous Irish writer James Joyce.

Day 3

Koper

Slovenia’s largest town, Koper has been a well-kept secret. As you explore all of the shopping and industrial areas, you’ll notice a medieval ambiance that is well worth the experience. Visit the coastal city rich with picturesque peninsulas or get lost in Tito Square as you walk downhill towards the water.

Day 4

Trogir

UNESCO awarded Trogir is considered to be one of the oldest and most exciting villages along the Adriatic Coast. This town is located on a small island that lies between the mainland and Ciovo and sports some impressive medieval walls and a collection of Romanesque and Renaissance architecture. Kindly check the Land Adventures tab to see the wonderful options in store for you.

Day 5

Trogir to Split

Split is one of the oldest cities in the area and the second largest city behind Dubrovnik in Croatia. The Diocletian’s Palace is not only listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site but is also considered to be one of the world’s most impressive Roman monuments. This city is believed to be over 1,700 years old, while archaeological research relates the settling to the ancient Greek colony of Aspalathos (6th century BC) establishes the city as being several hundred years older. SeaDream offers three unique land adventure opportunities; Rafting on the Cetina River, the Split Archipelago by speedboat and naturally the Historic Split overview that included the Diocletian Palace as well as the Mestrovic Gallery.

Day 6

Neum

Travel to Bosnia and Herzegovina’s only coastal town. Neum is the country’s only access point to the Adriatic Sea. Its peaceful bay offers the perfect conditions for water activities, including scuba diving, yachting, jet skiing and more. Visitors are enthralled by this under-the-radar destination’s history and spectacular natural sights. Neum’s relaxing beaches are one of the region’s best-kept secrets.

Day 7

Dubrovnik, Old Town

Day 8

Dubrovnik, Old Town to Kotor

Kotor is a coastal town in Montenegro. The old Mediterranean port of Kotor is surrounded by an impressive city wall built by the Republic of Venice and the Venetian influence remains dominant among the architectural influences. In 1979 the Bay of Kotor, City of Kotor and the surrounding territory have been listed in the UNESCO Heritage as a Cultural Site. SeaDream usually navigates close by the small islands of St. George and Our Lady of the Reef. The Bay of Kotor stretches 28 km and is one of the most indented parts of the Adriatic Sea. It is sometimes called the southern-most fjord in Europe (though it is actually a submerged river canyon called a ria). SeaDream typically docks steps away from the town. SeaDream has arranged a few different Yachting Land Adventures. One of them is a walking discovery and the other will show you the heritage and countryside of Montenegro. For the active guests, there’s incredible biking along the coast as well as a hike up to the fortress. On occasion, SeaDream may dock in the bay and tender directly to the town. We regret that watersports are not allowed in this protected area.

Day 9

Ksamil

Cherish a rare opportunity to visit this almost unknown, picture-perfect destination, a resort village uniquely situated within Albania’s Butrint National Park. Embraced by the narrow Strait of Corfu to the west and the saltwater Lake Butrint to the east, Ksamil offers ample opportunities for exploration both on land and in the sea. Near the main beaches, several small islands emerge from the impossibly crystalline water, readily accessible by kayak, paddleboat or even an energizing swim. Within the park, well-tended paths lead to the ancient Greek and Roman city of Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage site that contains an enchanting 3rd-century BC theater still in use today. Other highlights include the Roman forum, the Sanctuary of Asclepius, an early Christian basilica and the remarkable mosaic floor of the baptisterium. You’ll discover that the Venetians also left their mark, constructing an imposing square tower and a castle that houses an absorbing archeological museum. From atop the fortifications, revel in far-reaching panoramic vistas of the park’s glistening waterways, forested hills and the distant mountains beyond.

Day 10

Itea (Delphi) to Corinth Canal (Transit)

Itea is a small town situated on the north coast of the Gulf of Corinth, 2 km west of Kirra, 8 km southwest of Delphi. The town has a nice beach along with some shops, cafes and restaurants. It allows the closest access to the incredible sight of Delphi which is within the top three archeological attractions in Greece and in 1987 was inscribed as a UNESCO Heritage Site. It is believed the Zeus wanted to find the center of the Earth so he sent two eagles flying from the eastern and western extremities and where they met was Delphi – becoming the “navel/center of the earth”. SeaDream has arranged the very best guides and vehicles from Athens to enhance this incredible visit further. Your guided visit highlights the ancient Sanctuary of Apollo, where Pythia, the celebrated Oracle dwelt, the Temple of Apollo, the Sacred Way, the amphitheater, the best-preserved stadium of Greece, and the Castalia Spring, where in ancient days the pilgrims had to wash before they were allowed to consult the Oracle. In the Delphi Museum, see such treasures as the Omphalos, which marked the center of the world, and the magnificent bronze Charioteer, one of the finest pieces surviving from the 5th century BC. After the museum, there will be free time to visit the village of Delphi. SeaDream has the option of docking along the small pier in Itea or anchoring off to provide water sports options. This is dependent on availability as well as a number of guests visiting the archeological site.
So narrow! So dramatic! You'll understand why SeaDream says "expect the unexpected" as your yacht transits the Corinth Canal. The canal was first completed in 1893, despite previous attempts from ancient times; the first plans being from 602BC. The Roman Emporer Nero actually started construction in 67AD, making the first cut himself with a golden pick. The canal we transit is 6.3 kilometres (3.9 mi) in length. Before the canal, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic had to circumnavigate the Peloponnese Peninsula adding about 185 nautical miles to their voyage.

Day 11

Athens (Piraeus)

Disembarkation.
Piraeus, roughly translating to “the place over the passage”, is an important Greek port located within the Athens agglomeration, in the Attica Basin. It is 12 kilometers from the municipality of Athens, considered the fourth largest and is the third most populous amongst all the municipalities of Greece. Now a peninsula, Piraeus, originally a rocky island, was developed in early 5th Century B.C. when it was initially designated as Athens’ import and transit trade port. It is the largest marine-based shipping center of Greece, one of the largest ports in Europe, and considered the second largest passenger port in the world. Inhabited since the 26th Century, it wasn’t until the 6th Century B.C. that Piraeus began catching attention. The land of Piraeus was essentially impassable, flooded by the sea most of the year until centuries passed and the flooding ceased. By the 5th Century B.C. it became a navy base for the Athenian fleet for the natural harbors and the strategic potential they carried. Athenian general and politician Themistocles fortified Piraeus’ three harbors Kantharos, Zea and Munichia, created ship houses and completed his walls in 471 B.C., which led to the port becoming a great military and commercial harbor. There are many archaeological sites, points of interest and entertainment available in Piraeus. Most famous for its tavernas and cuisine, several popular events take place in Piraeus, such as the Ecocinema International Film Festival, the Maritime Festival, the Piraeus Rock Wave Festival and the Three Kings’ Way Festival. There are also many theaters, including the Municipal Theater, the open air Veakeio Theater, and the Menandreio Theater. Museums in Piraeus include the Archaeological Museum of Piraeus, the Merchant Shipping History Institute Exhibition, the Panos Aravantinos Decor Museum, the Georgios Averof Museum Ship and the Museum of Electric Railways. Be sure to catch the panoramic views available from the hill of Kastella, overlooking Athens and the Saronic Gulf!

Travelroute
Day 1

Venice, Italy

One of the most enchanting cities in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Venice rises from a lagoon on more than a hundred tiny islands linked by the iconic network of canals. A romantic gondola ride provides the perfect introduction to the city, gliding underneath the Ponte di Rialto – the oldest and most famous of Venice’s hundreds of bridges – and past the ornate palaces lining the Grand Canal. The power and wealth of the Venetian empire are on display at Piazza San Marco, the city’s most splendid square, where stands the grand St. Mark’s Basilica and the Gothic-style Doge’s Palace. Priceless art collections vie for attention, including the Italian masters in the Gallerie dell’Accademia and the modern works of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Some of the world’s most talented glassblowers showcase their wares on the island of Murano, while the colorful shops of Burano are home to artisan lace makers.

Day 2

Rovinj, Croatia

Italo-Slavic heritage and contemporary Croatian culture mix effortlessly in the northern Adriatic town of Rovinj. Colorful palazzos and historic buildings fill its beautiful Venetian-era Old Town, where you’ll find the Baroque Church of St. Euphemia. Climb its 60-meter-tall bell tower for spectacular panoramic views of the city, the Istrian Peninsula and the Rovinj archipelago. Linking the older and new districts, Tito Square is the lively town center, and home to a landmark clock tower, arch and museum. From here a long promenade extends along the harbor and marina and takes you all the way to Golden Cape, a tranquil forest. In the evening, chill out with a drink in the Old Town or head to the northwest end of the harbor for a relaxing sundowner. 

Day 3

Split, Croatia

Life in this exuberant city revolves around its outstanding UNESCO World Heritage Site, Diocletian’s Palace. Don’t be mistaken though – this is no quiet palace or stuffy museum – it’s an elaborate ancient complex of 220 buildings that make up the beating heart of this beautiful city. Home to around 3,000 people, Diocletian’s Palace is a precious Roman gem where the locals go about their daily lives undeterred by the fact that they’re living in a historical wonder. Its narrow alleyways are home to some wonderful restaurants and bars, so pull up a chair and sample the local pašticada (slabs of beef stewed in prunes and red wine), before heading to the charming Riva area at the harbor for a glass of the superb local wine and some world-class people-watching.

Day 4

Kotor, Montenegro

Simply arriving in Kotor is an unforgettable experience. One of the world’s most breathtaking waterways, the fjord-like Bay of Kotor follows a winding path through the forested mountains that rise on all sides of the sparkling sea. Nestled along the most inland cove are the coral-tiled roofs of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Fortified during Venetian rule, medieval ramparts surround the Old Town, where visitors will find historic landmarks such as the 12th-century Cathedral of St. Tryphon and the Maritime Museum. The physically fit should climb the 1,350 steps to clifftop St. John’s Fortress for gorgeous views of the town and the bay. A more leisurely option would be a boat tour to the unique Our Lady of the Rocks Church, situated on a tiny manmade islet, or a drive to the charming medieval town of Budva.

Day 5

Dubrovnik, Croatia

It was George Bernard Shaw who famously described Dubrovnik as “the pearl of the Adriatic” and recommended that “those who seek paradise on Earth should come … and see Dubrovnik.” Coral-tiled roofs and a backdrop of green hills contrast sharply with the spectacular blue of the Adriatic Sea. Thick medieval walls wrap around beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Dubrovnik is truly amazing, and it’s no wonder this UNESCO World Heritage site played a central role in TV’s popular Game of Thrones. Be sure to take a walk along the city walls. No matter how many times you’ve been to Dubrovnik, you can’t help being inspired by the ancient ramparts that survived sieges by countless invaders for centuries and still stand proudly today.

Day 6

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Disembarkation.

After sailing inland to Skradin and National Park Krka you will resume your voyage to the island off Dugi Otok and finish your sailing cruise in Trogir again. Note: the exact cruise plan of sailing yachts is never present, due to weather conditions.., that's sailing!

Overview

Trogir – Rogoznica – Sibenik / Skradin – Dugi Otok – Trogir

Combine the best of two worlds – an authentic sailing experience on large sailing yachts – without the pressure of fixed routings, and the comfort and service of a cruise.

We merge the best of the world of sailing with the world of traditional cruises. Authentic and individual sailing, just as if you had chartered your own yacht, is combined with the attentive and caring service of our professional crew and the comfort of a cruise ship.

Thereby, we do not follow a strict routing during the mostly one-week sailing cruises, but go by wind, weather and the desires of our guests. Hence, if the wind is good, we may sail even a little into the night, accompanied by a breathtaking view of the stars above…

And if the wind is calm, we just find the closest bay and enjoy a refreshing swim, go snorkelling or take a stroll on the beach.., pure seafaring, far from the mass tourism of large cruise liners.

Whenever possible, we actually set sails, but only for about 4-7 hours a day. In the remaining time there is plenty opportunity to take a swim right off board, to go on an individual excursion to the shore and get to know the country and its people, and much more…

Please Note: More Adriatic sailing cruises are available, not all of them are listed online. Please contact us for more details.

Ship information

Kairós

In Greek mythology, Kairós symbolizes the ‘perfect moment’ one has to seize right when it comes by.

That said: Welcome on Board!

The sketch of Kairós follows the drawings of classic sailing schooners in the 20’s of last century. Those were glorious times of legendary sailing vessels, when famous designers like William Fife from Scotland, Charles E. Nicholson from England or John Alden and Nathanael Herreshoff from the US created yachts of unequalled elegance and style.

Following these traditions Kairós was built with a hull of steel and all finishing’s in teak and mahogany. The designers choose to avoid larger superstructures on deck in order to create as much free space as possible.

Kairós is very fast and seaworthy. With the light and middle winds and even under engine, she already reaches a speed of 10 kn. Kairós can easily tack against the wind and even the sails don’t need to be reduced up to 6 Beaufort. Sailing with the Kairós is a true experience!

Kairós can accommodate a maximum of 16 guests in 6 cabins of est. 11m² with double beds (all with their own bathroom) and 2 cabins of  est. 9m², one with bunk beds and one with a double bed (all with their own bathroom). A crew of at least 7 cares for the operation of the vessel and the well-being of the guests.

The three ships of Sailing-Classics; Chronos, Kairós and Rhea are all classified under the CCV-Code (Commercial Cruising Vessel) and sail under Dutch flag. They have a 2-mast-ketch rigging as well as an optimized keel and hull to further improve their sailing performances.

The Chronos has a hull length of 48m (overall length 54m) and a width of 9.70m. A total sail area of est. 990m². On deck there is an aft helm stand and an outside seating area as well as a saloon with bar. The entrances to the cabins are in a second decks house, where also the ship’s office and an interior helm stand are located.

The Kairós has an overall length of 38m. and a width of 8.2m. A total sail area of est. 556m². She has a large teak deck with plenty of space for sunbathing and relaxing. Up to 16 guests may take breakfast, lunch or dinner under the sun roof next to the deckhouse with steering stand and bar. Below deck there is a large saloon with plenty of space for meals and meetings.

The Rhea has a hull length of 48m (overall length 54m) and a width of 9.70m. A total sail area of est. 990m². On deck there is an aft helm stand and an outside seating area as well as a saloon with bar. The entrances to the cabins are in a second decks house, where also the ship’s office and an interior helm stand are located.

The Adriatic, The Mediterranean, Exclusive yachting – Dubrovnik to Athens (Piraeus)
Fare from € 7.746
<read more>
Travelroute
Day 1

Dubrovnik, Croatia

It was George Bernard Shaw who famously described Dubrovnik as “the pearl of the Adriatic” and recommended that “those who seek paradise on Earth should come … and see Dubrovnik.” Coral-tiled roofs and a backdrop of green hills contrast sharply with the spectacular blue of the Adriatic Sea. Thick medieval walls wrap around beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains. Dubrovnik is truly amazing, and it’s no wonder this UNESCO World Heritage site played a central role in TV’s popular Game of Thrones. Be sure to take a walk along the city walls. No matter how many times you’ve been to Dubrovnik, you can’t help being inspired by the ancient ramparts that survived sieges by countless invaders for centuries and still stand proudly today.

Day 2

Dubrovnik, Croatia

Day 3

Korčula, Croatia

Sitting off the central Dalmatian coast, the wonderfully-green island of Korčula is dotted with olive groves, vineyards and pine forests. The main town’s pretty Old Town exemplifies Croatia’s rich Venetian heritage. At its center, you’ll find the 15th century St. Mark’s Cathedral rising high above the red-roofed Gothic and Renaissance buildings. Go wine-tasting in Smokvica or Cara; soak up some sun on a Lumbarda beach; or take a kayak tour of the islets of the Skoji archipelago – especially Badija, with its pretty monastery. At the end of the day, watch the sun set at Massimo Bar in Korčula town. Located in the turrets of the 15th century Zakerjan Tower, this bar is truly unique and can be accessed only by ladder.

Day 4

Split, Croatia

Life in this exuberant city revolves around its outstanding UNESCO World Heritage Site, Diocletian’s Palace. Don’t be mistaken though – this is no quiet palace or stuffy museum – it’s an elaborate ancient complex of 220 buildings that make up the beating heart of this beautiful city. Home to around 3,000 people, Diocletian’s Palace is a precious Roman gem where the locals go about their daily lives undeterred by the fact that they’re living in a historical wonder. Its narrow alleyways are home to some wonderful restaurants and bars, so pull up a chair and sample the local pašticada (slabs of beef stewed in prunes and red wine), before heading to the charming Riva area at the harbor for a glass of the superb local wine and some world-class people-watching.

Day 5

Sailing Time

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board. Enjoy a workout with a view at the gym, indulge in a relaxing spa treatment, watch the sky transform at sunset from The Observation Lounge, or find an intimate alcove in The Living Room and lose yourself in a favorite book.

Day 6

Katakolon, Greece

Tucked into a forested valley in the western Peloponnese, Olympia was ancient Greece’s center for the worship of Zeus, as well as the birthplace of the original Olympic Games. The Games took place here every four years for over 1,100 years, and the ruins – which include a colossal stadium that was built for 20,000 spectators – are truly impressive. Just 20 miles away on the coast is Katakolon, the maritime gateway to Olympia. This easygoing seaside town of open-air cafés, traditional tavernas and souvenir shops is a great base for exploring the sandy beaches of the Ionian Sea. In the late afternoon, head to the town’s harbor, where you can sample the local wine in one of its friendly little restaurants and bars.

Day 7

Pylos, Greece

Two fortresses – the Ottoman-era Néokástro and medieval Paleokastro – welcome you to the Bay of Navarínou, a natural harbor in the Peloponnese. Established after the 1827 naval battle that paved the way for an independent Greece, Pylos now guards the entrance to this beautiful bay. The area’s many beaches are unspoiled, most notably Voïdhokiliá, a picture-perfect semicircle of white sand that separates the Gialova Lagoon from the sea. A short drive from town takes you to the hilltop ruins of Nestor’s Palace. The best-preserved royal complex of Greece’s Mycenaean civilization, this renowned site has yielded priceless insights into Bronze Age history. Back in Pylos, take a seat for dinner in at one of the lively cafés and tavernas that surround the war memorial in the town’s main square.

Day 8

Monemvasia, Greece

Historic and romantic, the medieval town of Monemvasia is situated on the island nicknamed the “Gibraltar of the East,” an enormous hunk of rock rising from the sea and creating a natural fortress for its inhabitants. Only a single causeway links Monemvasia with the mainland, and visitors must leave cars behind to explore the walled town carved into the cliffside. Ancient stone houses with terracotta rooftops look out over the crystal blue waters and mountains beyond. There are six museums and many churches, including Agia Sophia, among the oldest Byzantine churches in Greece. Ancient ruins lie nearby on the mainland, including the towns of Epidaurus Limera and Kyphanta and the fortress of Zarakas. The area around Monemvasia is rich with flora and fauna, ideal for geological explorations, rock climbing, hiking and water sports, and a wide variety of beaches ring the promontory.

Day 9

Spetses, Greece

Pine-scented Spetses is an upscale and relaxed island that attracts more affluent Athenians than foreign tourists. With its rich seafaring culture, this little island is also hugely popular with the yachting crowd. This is one of the most cosmopolitan destinations in Greece, with beautiful Neoclassical buildings sitting on its fine squares and horse-drawn carriages roaming its pretty streets. Take a stroll from the main port of Dapia to the lighthouse in the Old Harbor, or visit the traditional Spetses Shipyards – the only ones in Greece that have been in operation since the War of Independence. You’ll find exquisite fine dining options at the Poseidonion Grand and the Nissia Hotel, and there are plenty of vibrant bars and clubs to explore in the Old Harbor area of Baltiza.

Day 10

Athens (Piraeus), Greece

Disembarkation.
Athens is the cradle of the Western democratic tradition, home to a civilization as radiant as any before or since. Feel the pulse of history as you climb to the hilltop Acropolis, home to some of the city’s most renowned ancient sites. Gaze in amazement at the massive columns of the Parthenon, Pericles' greatest monument. Admire the little Temple of Nike and the fantastic carvings of the caryatids that support a porch of the Erechtheion. At the bottom of the hill, the Acropolis Museum includes original statues of the maidens and numerous other artifacts unearthed here. Equally outstanding is the National Archaeological Museum, one of the largest in the world. In the Agora, you can walk in the footsteps of Plato and Aristotle, carry on an imaginary dialogue with Socrates and discover where Hippocrates healed and Pericles ruled. Then for lighter fare, savor the lively tavernas and twisting lanes of the Plaka neighborhood.

Overview

Exclusive yachting – Dubrovnik to Athens (Piraeus)

Explore the Dalmatian coast’s historic fortresses, island fishing villages and Roman ruins. The adventure continues amid the Peloponnese’s hidden hamlets, unspoiled beaches and walled towns that date back to the Bronze Age and concludes at the foot of the Acropolis.
