Discover the islands of the Ionian Sea sailing from Corfu onboard luxury classic yacht Rhea, with private ensuite cabins.

Join Rhea in Corfu as she sails you away from the iconic tourist hustle and bustle of this Greek island and shows you a side to island life that remains seemingly untouched. Discover the neighbouring islands of Paxos & Antipaxos, Lefkada and Ithaca nestled into the Ionian Sea.

Relax in tranquil anchorages, explore sandy coves and soak up the Ionian sunshine whilst sailing in luxury and comfort. Cypress trees dot the steep cliffs of these coasts with the scent of sweet pine drifting across the cobalt blue water. Hear nothing but the call of the birdlife and waves breaking softly as you dive into a snorkellers paradise.

Sail South to explore the lesser trodden gems of the Corfu coastline before heading for the island cluster of Paxi. Paxi is made up of the largest island of Paxos and the smaller, Antipaxos famous for its wine and two of the finest sand beaches in the Ionian Sea.

All the islands, along with Ithaca and Lefkada, still retain the Grecian charm with travellers only accessing the island by water, it has stopped the main harbour towns becoming overdeveloped by the tourist trade. With delightful harbour villages filled with traditional tavernas on the East sides of the islands, the West coasts have been left untouched. Centuries-old olive groves among rolling hills and unspoilt coves framed by sheer limestone cliffs provide the perfect anchorages for Chronos and her guests to explore.

Rhea offers daily cabin service, a rich breakfast buffet, a light 2-course lunch at noon, coffee, tea and cake in the afternoon, and a 3-course dinner in the evening. Upon arrival, you will receive a welcome drink and on the last evening, the Captain’s Dinner will be served. One evening a week, all guests eat at their own expense on land to get to know the local cuisine.

With Rhea as your base, great food included and some beautiful bucket list locations; this is a holiday experience of a lifetime and one not to be missed!

*Please note that an exact itinerary cannot be guaranteed due to the changing winds and tides but rest assured Rhea will show you the true magic of Corfu.

Soft drinks and alcoholic drinks, water sports (wakeboarding, water skiing, banana boat chargeable, sea kayak, SUP) However Stand Up Paddleboards and snorkelling (adult size only) are free of charge) with motor drive and trips organised by us are chargeable as an extra. However, we offer this at moderate prices and are well below the prices of other cruises. The onboard currency is the Euro. We will open an onboard account for you on the day of arrival, from which you can pay all personal expenses.

Rhea

Guest berths: 26 Rig: Bermudan Ketch

Like her sister Chronos, Rhea was built and designed in Bodrum, Turkey but is registered in Holland and spends her days sailing the Mediterranean and Caribbean. The youngest in our fleet, Rhea was purpose built as a charter vessel in 2016 and finished in 2017 as a two-masted, 54m staysail ketch.

This beautiful Ketch was designed by Klaus Röder who based his design on a classic yacht whilst keeping up with the modern day ketch; built for performance sailing and guest comfort. The classic rig of a Bermuda Ketch with a large boom was conceptualised and designed by Klaas Huizinga.

Built with luxury in mind, the outline on deck is of teak and mahogany with plenty of space to sun-bath, read a book and enjoy the views. All the sails are electronically retractable, so no need to learn the ropes here. (The crew are, however, more than happy for guests to get involved with the operating and sailing of Rhea as much as they would like!)

An admiralty ladder provides the perfect place to jump off into the warm Caribbean waters, have a swim and climb back aboard with ease. Rhea also offers her guests the options of using her water skiing, wake-board, tube riding, banana boat, 2 kayaks, 2 stand up Paddleboards, snorkelling equipment and even a sail dinghy (QubaRS)

The deckhouse offers its very own small bar whilst below decks offers still more space to relax with another dining area, as well as her on-deck dining area. Her private cabins, offering both double and single beds, all have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.

The professional crew consists of the Skipper, first mate, mechanic, bosun, cook and 4 stewards, so you will most certainly be looked after during your time aboard Rhea.
