Where to find your yacht
As you can see in picture above the yachts are moored in the marina close to of the shops and cafe's. Mooring is stern-to on the quayside on fixed 'lazy' line moorings.
Provisioning & Checkin/out
We will keep this as brief as possible but a comprehensive checkin is always required. Whilst this is being done we can send a party off for provisioning and we will suggest the best place(s) to go.
Once paperwork, checkin, discussion on the sailing plan/area, questions ect are answered you will be free to go. Sometimes this can be the same day and sometimes you may have to spend the evening in Achillio, it all depends on time, weather and you.
At our Achillio base we have a growing range of yachts, see top right of this page for more information
