Salamander Voyages, a small luxury gulet and yacht charter company, has expanded its fleet in into Greece and Croatia with the addition of two new beautiful boats.
As part of the new additions, Arktos will explore the stunning Saronic and Cyclades Islands of Greece and Morning Star to explore the magical Dalmatian coast of Croatia.
As with all Salamander Voyages’ offerings, these new boats have been handpicked for their charm and character, and the routes meticulously researched to include an array of cultural experiences and lesser visited spots. Each voyage will be led by knowledgeable, local and seasoned crew, including onboard chef, who will take care of every need both on and off the boat, while the highly inclusive experience allows guests the luxury of switching off without the worry of mounting costs.
“This is a hugely exciting start to our anniversary year,” says Tessa Wills (neé Cooke), co-owner of Salamander Voyages. “Next year marks 20 years since we launched our classic Turkish gulet Salamander, and since then, we have been carefully honing our craft, perfecting our itineraries and building our reputation for incredible service. The addition of Croatia and Greece is an exciting step forward in our expansion plans, with many new gulets and destinations in the pipeline for next year and beyond.”
From the company’s new base near Athens, guests can explore the mesmerising Saronic islands and irresistible Cyclades Islands of Greece; iconic archipelagos of islands dotted with traditional whitewashed sugar cube buildings and surrounded by a thousand shades of turquoise. Culturally there is everything from Neolithic caves, to Doric Temples, and from neo-classical architecture in Hydra to the contemporary glamour of Mykonos and no shortage of appeal.
Arktos is an impressive 34m sailing yacht and the newest addition to the fleet. Designed in the vernacular of a 19th century Greek Galaxidi vessel and kitted out with the amenities of a superyacht., this is a very special charter. She accommodates 11 guests in sublime comfort with a generous 7-person crew, and comes with two tenders as well as state-of-the-art watersports equipment.
Alternatively, explore the alluring Adriatic along the dramatic Dalmatian coast of Croatia with its turquoise waters, charming port towns, majestic fortresses, imposing mountainous backdrops and abounding unspoiled islands. All itineraries are totally bespoke and including anything from the historic walled city of Dubrovnik and the medieval walls of Trogir to the stunning archipelago of the Kornati islands or sophisticated beach clubs of Hvar.
Morning Star is a newly refurbished 27m traditional gulet with 6 elegant ensuite cabins, spacious saloons and decks, oozing character and comfort for a group of 12, with 4 crew. Watersports equipment available for guest use include waterskis, wakeboard, paddle boards, kayak, snorkelling gear and fishing equipment.
