Skippered Charter - Crew of 5 from USA - 2 weeks from Volos in July/August 2021 - Ref:21051Y
Thanks for the note. We had a great time again this year although we had to deal with less than ideal waters (lots of jellyfish this year :( ) Planning to take a trip in the Ionian next year. I'll ping you if we return to the sporades the following year.
Notes: Rescheduled from 2020 to 2021 due to Covid, many thanks for coming back again for 2 weeks this time. Sorry about the Jellyfish, this does happen from time to time in certain bays. A change is always good, I hope we can welcome you back again in 2023.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 8 from Serbia - 1 week from Volos in July 2021
The yacht is really good, the owner - Joanna - is really kind and helpful. Everything on the boat is in really good condition, the boat itself is very fast and comfortable, we will gladly choose this boat over and over again. We did the tour around Sporades islands, and this Bavaria 46 is ideal for the trip.
Notes: Thank you very much for this review and for booking this yacht again. This is a 2007 build yacht maintained in excellent condition and once you have experienced this you know you are safe to book it again and again.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 9 from Spain - 1 Week from Volos in July 2021 - Ref:21165Y
Mixit Sailing was the best choice when booking a charter in Sporades. Philip found us a great boat and his colleagues in Volos, Ria and Dimitris were the best team we could find. Dimitris was sailing a similar route to ours so he was around every time we needed him. They provided info on the area and a lot of good vibes. The boat was brand new and everything we could have asked for.
Thanks for the trip, we will come back!
Notes: Hello Jose and the crew, thank you for this review. Glad you had a good week on our new (2021) Oceanis 46.1. You are all very welcome to come back anytime :-)
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 9 from Serbia - 1 week from Volos in July 2021 - Ref:21189Y
Honestly, everything was like we imagined it. The yacht was in great condition and we had no technical issues.
You and the owners have been very professional and have helped us in understanding everything about the yacht before we took off. The weather was perfect and we have visited some great locations, such as Skiathos and Skopelos, and have really enjoyed ourselves. We will surely be back next year.
Notes: Thank you very much for coming again this year, we look forward to seeing you next year :-)
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 5 from Romania - 1 week from Volos in October 2020
We just wanted to thank you all for a great holiday in Volos-Skiathos-Skopelos area. The booking process was simple and flexible in this pandemic situation – we appreciate this…
The boat was in impeccable condition and the support was superb. We’ve received a boat that was clean and well prepared; it was clear from the first step that Jo put some passion to maintain it to a high standard. The briefing we received was thorough and professionally delivered. During our week spent on the yacht everything worked perfectly which enabled us to have a stress-free holiday. Jo was very friendly and helpful and gave us some really good tips for route planning, weather characteristics and secluded bays. Volos Gulf and Northern Sporades area offers a lot of spots for sailing, dinning, sunbathing and swimming. We found sheltered bays, good anchorage areas, good taverns and fair winds.
We had a great experience with MIXit Sailing and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a yacht charter in the area of Northern Sporades.
Thank you and hope to be back in the near future.
Notes: This review is much appreciated, especially during this difficult pandemic year and many thanks to our base manager 'Jo' in Volos, always ensuring a most professional service.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 5 from Germany - 1 week from Nikiti Chalkidiki in September 2020
We had a wonderful holiday in a great area. Found beautiful anchorages and did enjoy the sailing and the landfalls :-) Our boat was in good shape and the guys from the base were the friendliest and most helpful ever. We will surely come back to Nikiti and great Chalkidiki.
Notes: Thank you for this excellent review of your sailing holiday from our base in Nikiti Chalkidiki. Also thank you for booking with us again, this is your third holiday with the other two from our Volos base. Nikiti or Volos we look forward to welcoming you back again.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 5 from Germany - 2 weeks from Volos in July 2020
We spent an excellent 2 weeks on the Sun Odyssey 37 starting from Volos and cruising in the Northern Sporades. Thanks to the very friendly and helpful guidance by Philip through the whole booking process and to the corona specific guidelines everything was perfect, also in difficult times. Although a model year 2001 this yacht is maintained in very good condition with some unique special features. We met the owner Kostas who personally handed over the boat to us and explained everything in detail. He took a lot of time, no questions remained unanswered, we even received weather information by text message.
Good sailing with a classic mainsail with lazy jack and a rolling foresail, rigging and winches are well maintained and in good condition. Inside and outside the boat was in very good condition, a reliable outboard motor and a stable dingy big enough for 4 maybe 5. Everything worked out well, we can highly recommend the boat as well as the Charter company. We were very satisfied, this was one of our best sailing trips we had as a family of 5 (3 teenagers ... ) .
Very nice trip to the islands, very quiet in corona times, only a few other boats sailing in the Pagasitikos Gulf (Gulf of Volos), stops on Euboea and then up to Pelagonisi Island - best memories of fantastic sailing holidays ! Thanks Philip and Kostas.
Anne, Tom and the boys
Notes: This is a suprisingly good yacht for 2001 build, a real classic in great condition and with some useful special features as you say. Glad you all had a good time and for successfully navigating this complicated year :-)
Skippered Charter - Crew of 4 from UK - 1 week from Volos in July 2020
Huge thanks to Phil at Mixit, Jo for her beautiful yacht and Panos our Skipper for a great trip around the Sporades Islands in July 2020 - we had a wonderful time.
Notes: It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family back again, this is your 4th trip so far 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020 and we hope to see you again next year.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 4 from France - 2 weeks from Nikiti Halkidiki in July 2020
“We had a wonderful two-week holiday in July discovering Halkidiki and the Northern Sporades. Saw dolphins practically every day. Skopelos and gazing at the comet under the brightest of night skies in a deserted bay off Skiropoula were particular highlights. This Lagoon 420 is a spacious and easy boat to handle. The back-up support from the team at the Nikiti base was absolutely first class. They have contacts throughout the region and were able to help us on the one or two occasions we needed advice or assistance.”
Many thanks Phil. These must really difficult times for anyone involved in the tourism business. But, I have a feeling that when this thing blows over or can be managed better, more people will be looking for the type of sailing adventures and personal service that you are able to offer. Best wishes, Ivan
Notes: Many thanks for your kind words much appreciated.
Bareboat Charter - Crew of 4 from Ireland - 1 week from Volos in July 2020
Just back from a fantastic weeks sailing out of the Port of Volos. 2 couples on a beautiful, well maintained Beneteau 393. These are perfect sailing waters for beginners and more experienced skippers. The Gulf offers a huge variety of scenic, sundrenched harbours and anchorages. The tavernas and restaurants ashore offer everything you would want and imagine in a Greek coastal setting. I cant forget the wonderful hospitality of all the Greek people we met along the way. Reminded me of friendly Irish folk back home; only with a better suntan.
We flew out in July when the Covid Restrictions were still at large but not In Greece obviously. The trip was only possible given the support and work put in by Phil and the Mixit team in advance which enabled us to go ahead. Happy to say our confidence was re paid with no issues or problems what so ever encountered. Well done guys and thanks a lot. We would love to return. Regards John
...AND FROM THE CREW...
I’ll leave John to review the technical side of the Beneteau Oceanis but I would like to add that we were very impressed with the cleanliness of everything. Every corner was ship shape and the fruit bowl was a nice welcoming touch. Overall we found the yacht to be in mint condition, and it handled very well.
Thanks a lot, Lisa
Notes: Many thanks for 'going for it' during this complex year we look forward to next time.
