Bareboat Charter - Crew of 4 - Spanish, French & English - 10 days in June 2018 from Volos
We had a very pleasant holiday on board of Cyclades 43.3 yacht around the Sporades Islands. This was our first trip after completing the Day Skipper and Competent Crew courses with Thessalia School of Sailing in Volos and we found lots of support from our teacher Carl and also from Phil and Mixit Sailing Holidays team. They reviewed our plans, advise us with tips and gave us all the confidence we needed to sail.
The boat was clean and in very good condition, had a good size and all the cabins were ensuite which gave us privacy to all of us, the kitchen was equipped with all the necessary and we had meals onboard as well as out. When sailing it felt very stable although we reefed on strong winds and when there was no wind we motored which allowed us to recharge batteries.
Phil from Mixit Sailing Holidays received us in Volos and the company took care of the final cleaning and fuel refilling. It was all very easy and we would recommend Mixit Sailing Holidays to anyone for renting/chartering sailing boats, Thessalia Sailing school to learn or update sailing knowledge or experience and Volos as a main point of sailing for your holidays. For sure we want to go back again!
Sara, Hervé, Pete and Margaret
Notes: Many thanks for this excellent review, we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 7 from Belgium - 1 week in May 2018 - Returning Customer
We chartered the Bavaria 46 Cruiser in May 2018, from Volos. This was the second time we chartered with MixItSailing. As always the service and contact with Phillip and his team was impeccable.
The quality and condition of our 10-year old yacht was outstanding. In 25 years of chartering, all over the world, I never chartered a yacht in this superb condition.
Volos is an ideal base to sail around the Magnesia-bays and to the Sporades-islands (Volos-airport is only a 20-minute taxi-ride away).
We again had a wonderfull time in this sailing area, it’s not overly touristy in contrast to some of the more popular Greek-sailing-areas, and it has a more laid-back atmosphere.
Highlights and hints :
- BBQ on the beach of Or.Peristera (Peristeri island)
- Agnanti restaurant in Glossa (Skopelos) : one of the finest dining-experiences in the last 20years in Greece !
- Diavlos taverna in Palea Trikeri : delicious shrimp-spaghetti.
- Stafylos taverna in Volos : wide choice and very tastefull dishes (a 5 minute walk from the quay in Volos).
Again MixIt proved to be the best choice to charter a yacht in this area,
Grtz from Belgium, Koen Jacobs & crew.
Notes: Thank you for this excellent review and good to see you all again.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 5 from Bulgaria - 1 week in June 2018 - Returning Customer
"As this is our second year with Mixit, we can highly recommend Phil services and attitude towards clients. Both of the boats we chartered, were in very good condition and we enjoyed very nice sailing trips. My mother even drew a picture of the Beneteau Oceanis 393 that we had in the second year. In both of the trips we had the luck to make 50+ daily miles under sails (Skopelos – Volos and Skopelos – Achileo) and we can say that everything in the rigging was perfect. Owners of the yachts, Thanasis and George, were also very friendly and shared a lot of useful information. First year we were on the Beneteau Oceanis 381. The only reason for change were 1.2 foots and limited availability of the 381"
Notes: Great to see you all again and many thanks for this excellent review, till next time :)

Bareboat Charter - Crew of 8 from Macedonia - 1 week in May 2018 from Volos
We had great experiance dealing with Phil from MIXit Sailing. He was frendly polite and very helpful. The boat we had Sun Odyssey 42iP was incredible. It was well maintained and it looked like new. The owner of the boat was nice and spent some time explaning all the details on the boat and the sailing area. The sails and most of the equipment on the boat were completely new and we realy had great sailing experiance. I would kindly recommend MIXit to my friends and to everyone that want flawless deals on the best sailing boats in Greece. Aleksandar
Notes: Hello Aleksandar and thank you for this excellent review, I am glad you all had a good time. Till next time and of course all your friends are very welcome.
Bareboat Charter - Family from Sweden - 1 week in July from Skiathos
We can highly recommend Mixit Sailing. We got prompt and personal service. The boat we chartered was the Beneteau 381. It is somewhat older than what we would have preferred when we booked it, but we were surprised of how well maintained it was, everything in good condition.

Bareboat Charter - Crew of 4 from UK - 2 weeks in July from Skiathos
Firstly I would like to thank Phil for all his help in arranging the perfect yacht for our holiday with 2 young children. We had asked for various out of the box arrangements to be made and these were all taken care of. We arrived at our meeting point The Fresh Cafe in Skiathos and were greeted by the base manager Lambros , for which nothing was to much trouble even giving us enough sheets and towels for a month at sea. The yacht was perfectly equipped and had so many extras that we were taken aback. it even had a microwave. We had a wonderful time sailing around the Sporades and took the advice from Lambros as to where to go . Many memorable moments but waking up surrounded by Giant fishing vessels did make for an interesting exit. Thanks again to Phil and Lambros and once again I would like to thank Lambros for the extra hours given on board whilst waiting for our flight.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 2 from UK - 1 week in September from Skiathos
We were delighted with our bareboat charter sailing from Skiathos, to Skopelos, Alonnissos and some of the uninhabited islands nearby. The boat was in beautiful condition and great value for money compared with other quotes we had. Dimitris met us at Skiathos and was very helpful with everything, including our itinerary. He stayed in touch throughout the trip texting us ideas for the best restaurants and things to see as well as sailing tips. When we got the sail jammed he immediately found someone to meet up with it and fix it for us, so we were on our way in no time.
Notes: Excellent, many thanks Sarah & Robbie for this feedback
