Greece By Sail - The Skippers & Yachts

In 1977 our Grand-father, Prof. Ioanis Th. MATSAKIS, decided to build a traditional wooden yacht, event in the origin of the sea focus of the family.

The professional activity is based in Syros island (center of Cyclades) and was started by his son Alexander.

3 descendants of Ioanis are now involved, with 3 traditional wooden sailing yachts (weekly cruises) and 3 catamarans (daily trips from Mykonos).


SECURITY: Always the rule No.1 in the sea and the same is true for sailing, tourist yachts or tankers.

QUALITY: Each year our yachts are perfectly maintained and... improved!

KINDNESS: Our job has only one sense and it is a beautiful one: to give Happiness...

One family company means addition of experiences, perfect knowledge of the yachts, highest motivation to offer the best service to our guests... who often come back, even from far abroad!

... It's true than with more than 10,000 miles of coast line and several thousands islands and islets Greece offers the opportunity to come back dozens of times without seeing the same islands!


In the Captain's Family I Ask For...

Captain Themis
...the Son: Themis often called "OMYGOODSON"
as he achieved to keep only the qualities of his Elders !


On the yacht since a young age Themistocle was a sailor, then a sailor-cook, then 4 years skipper of the ANATOLIE. Since 2016 he is captain of the 88 feet SYROLANA (27 m). This yacht can accomodate up to 16 guests in 6 cabins.

SYROLANA sail the Ionian islands (2018) or the Sporades islands (2019) in July and August (with transfer from Athens Airport to the yacht) and the Cyclades the rest of the season. Breakfast and lunch are provided by the crew with dinners on shore.

You can hire the whole yacht for a private cruise with friends or relatives but also by cabin (shared yacht).

Captain Alex
The Father: Alexandre "The Great... Bear!"
Good guy... but as long no-one tries to take his place in a harbour !


Founder of the activity, Alexander is the Skipper of the crewed yacht "Kapetan Kosmas" 88 feet (27 meters), the new yacht in our family fleet. 

"Kapetan Kosmas" will sail the Cyclades in mid-season, based in Syros for West Cyclades (Milos, Sifnos, Serifos, Kimolos) or in Mykonos for West Cyclades including Santorini. In July and August the Sporades islands (2018) or the Ionian islands (2019) with transfer from Athens Airport to the yacht.

The cook prepares breakfast and a good lunch. For dinner you can enjoy the local specialties in the taverns of the harbors and swap sometimes if you want to spend a night in a cove, under the stars.

Captain Alex, a Yacht Master with commercial endorsement, made his first long trip with a wooden yacht more than 30 years ago from Greece to France.

He also sailed from Turkey to Venice, from Croatia to Malta and Baleares, from Tunisia to the Canary islands. But what he knows better is the Greek islands.
