PLAN & OVERVIEW

Our Hanse 400 offers superb performance in a comfortable 3 stateroom, 2 head interior. The Hanse was Boat of the Year in 2006. Our Hanse 400 is based in Athens for 2010 but can be sailed from many places, and offers quality European design and workmanship. She has an extremely elegant, light and modern interior, beautiful woodwork and comfortable heads and a spacious toilet with separate shower cubical.

Sailing performance is her most notable feature, with a large main that can be effectively reefed, and a self-tacking headsail for incredibly easy handling. She is an easy large boat that really sails well. She is perhaps the only boat of her size where all the sheets can be trimmed from the helm, allowing one person to sail her with ease. Let your crew do what they enjoy, while you enjoy the feel of the roller bearing steering system with fingertip control In general, the Hanse is easy to sail and very comfortable.

As a reference from a skipper who sailed the Hanse 400 many times: A great sailing yacht, the 40ft Hanse which is a top boat to sail and not comparable with the average charter boat.

HOLIDAY PRICES

The holiday cost varies according to season and destination but starts from € 2500 per week including the skipper.

Argo is normally booked per week starting on Saturday. In low and mid season we can be more flexible with start and end dates and the duration of your trip.

A one-week sailing holiday can be combined with island stays. We also so one-way trips from Athens with Argo.

A minimum of 2 weeks is required to enjoy the full Cyclades experience, including Santorini and Mykonos or a full exploration of the Micro Cyclades if you like to go off-the-beaten-track.

The holiday cost includes a skipper, VAT, and cleaning. If you like a hostess/cook on board that will be €150,- per day extra or just a hostess deckhand €130,- per day

An additional charge is made to cover fuel and provisioning. This is called the APA (Advanced Provisioning Allowance) and averages around 15%-20% of the holiday cost depending on the number of guests and your provisioning wishes.

At the end of your cruise, the APA accounting is finalized and you receive a refund or an invoice to make up the exact amount.

To confirm your holiday booking a 50% downpayment is required, with the balance paid one month before departure.

Our cancellation policies can be found in our terms and conditions of booking.

Best vacation of my life! I was hesitant about being on a sailboat with 2 toddlers, but Walter's abilities and attention to our family (along with his wife, loveliest ever, Aleca) made us feel right at home and in trustworthy hands. Walter considered all of our needs and wishes and was willing to go out of his way at any point and time. I not only hold this trip dear to my heart, but Walter and Aleca as well.

Since 2007, Walter has been our skipper every summer. Sailing in the Mediterranean is my favorite summer experience. So many unforgettable memories. Walter is a great sailor and a fantastic skipper. He quickly became a friend and someone we enjoy having with us on the boat, at dinner, etc, summer after summer. Walter knows the Med very well - the swimming spots, the good tavernas, the marinas and the anchoring spots, the local hidden bars and other gems. Highly recommended.

We spent one week touring Athens and the surrounding area and then ten days touring the islands by sailboat. One of the highlights was swimming in the caldera at Santorini and another was watching the pod of dolphins swim by the sailboat. Walter and his wife, who's a fabulous cook, we're the most gracious hosts. Walter arranged for everything we could ask for. We loved our vacation and would do it again in a heartbeat. You can't go wrong with Ocean Nomads!

My family sailed with Walter and his wife and we had the most amazing vacation. The sailboat was in perfect condition, the sites changed every day and were beautiful, his wife prepared fresh meals for us every day from the different local markets where the boat docked. We highly recommend this experience of a lifetime to anyone.
