Cruising Area of Amanda
AMANDA is a classic wooden motor yacht homeported in Piraeus, Greece. Built in 1956 in the U.K., she was refitted in 2017 to her original layout. Further refit work was performed in 2018. AMANDA is a shining example of a lovingly restored traditional craft.
A 24-meter (78 foot) cruiser powered by two diesel Rolls Royce engines capable of 10-12miles/hour, she accommodates up to 12 people in five cabins. The yacht runs with captain and crew of three marine professionals who are devoted to AMANDA, speak English, and are eager to share the experience with guests.
AMANDA, with excellent displacement and a narrow beam, performs smoothly even in large seas. The interior design is comfortable yet not overly formal; there’s a small lounge off the guest cabins and the overall area below the main deck is private and beautifully maintained. The cabins and heads are attractive and comfortable. The aft deck space is roomy and leaves plenty of area for guests to move around. A special feature is the forward dining area with bar and lounge. This special accommodation – the lounge area -- is where AMANDA’s guests love to congregate. There’s plenty of room for large groups.
Everybody knows the beauty of sailing on a classic wooden yacht. Beyond the beauty of the classic yacht, there is another beauty named classic Greece, full of islands and crystal blue waters under a thousand shades of the Aegean Sea. AMANDA and crew are pleased to offer seven and 10-day itineraries to Greece’s most beloved island groups, the Cyclades, Ionian, Saronics and Sporades among them. Partial week and custom itineraries are also available.
Enjoy morning swims and panoramic backdrop views while dining al fresco. Ashore, walk village streets, visit ancient monuments, local museums, open air theaters. Take in the night life of the islands with a drink after dinner before you return to the yacht for a tranquil night of rest.
2 Double cabins; 2 twin cabins; 1 cabin with either 4 twin beds or can convert to 1 double bed below and 2 single beds above. Cabins share 3 full bathrooms.

Amanda Guest Reviews

All I have to say is thank you for an awesome experience onboard this classic yacht. Food, service, attention and amenities a total A+++
The Boat is outstanding ! vintage and very well maintained! The crew is very polite and the captain know exactly what he is doing. I am very pleased about my cruise and i recommend it to everyone!
We spent 5 days aboard the Amanda Yacht and the crew was nothing short of perfection. The captain was very accommodating and flexible to our desires/schedule, the food was incredible (GEORGE!!!) and they knew all the best spots in the Greek Islands, whether you want to party or relax. Book it now!
My friends and I were out on the yacht for 5 nights and we visited a handful of islands. The highlight of the trips, besides the beautiful beaches, was the boat crew. All 4 crew members were nothing but amazing. The service was first class, the food George cooked was outstanding and the attention to detail was unparalleled. The yacht itself is a classic. Build for comfort and very up to date. Cabins have air conditioning and towels and sheets are provided. Next time I do a boat trip anywhere in Europe, I´ll want to have Captain John and his crew there with us.
