Project Steel Guest Reviews
11 - 18 SEPT. 2019
Its unanimous, this has been the vacation of a lifetime!! Here we are 11 people from all over the United States, on a yacht in Greece with the best captain and crew anyone could ask for, especially while we were cruising through gale force winds on our way to Mykonos. The remaining few days were spent on private beaches and quant towns that screamed “we live here!” The amazing Project Steel crew went above & beyond to make this the most memorable experience to celebrate three 30th Birthdays. From endless frappes and wine to fuel days on the “Sea bob”, wild theme nights and non – stop group photos. We couldn’t have asked for more fantastic crew!! Until next time, Love you so much guys!!
02 - 09 SEPT. 2019
On our second visit we were happy to find new additions to both the boat and the equipment!! We loved “seabob”!!! We felt safe with Captain John, his knowledge is second to none. Staff were amazing taking such good care of us. We are planning our return next year for more adventure!!
03 - 10 AUGUST 2019
Thank you captain John and crew for making our first time in Greece an amazing experience. From the food to the service everything was perfect. We enjoyed our time on Project Steel. We are so sad to leave… 12 islands in one week was more than we dreamed. Captain John’s knowledge of the islands made for an amazing trip filled with hidden coves, stunning sunsets and adventurous hikes. We look forward to our next trip!
Much love <3
27 JULY - 03 AUGUST 2019
We had a great stay here <3 I was so lucky to spend my 16th birthday here! The crew was so nice and they made our stay just wonderful!! Thank you for making our trip so special!!
It was really fun here and we all had a great time and we wish we could stayed one week more!! The crew was amazing and the service was perfect!! All the places we visited were so beautiful with crystal clear water. Thank you for this memorable trip and we hope to see you again!!
29 JUNE - 06 JULY 2019
It is our third time on board of Project Steel. So no need to say that we love the boat, we love the captain and we love the crew. Why change a winning team? Once again, we just had 7 fantastic days, thanks to Captain John and his crew who fed us fabulously, pampered us, took care of us, answered to all our needs and brought us back safe and sound Thank you to all of you!! We cannot wait to come back!!!
PS: Captain John we wish you a happy new life as a dad of little Nikos.
All the best to New Project Steel and see you soon!

This is our second trip onboard p.s. and we are already planning the third! Another magical family holiday and 50th celebration. Everyone from 4 to 74 had the most special, relaxing and memorable holiday! The incredible team of crew did everything and anything to make us comfortable and welcome. They looked after children so well and with so much love ire really meant we could relax! The sandy beached, delicious food, water sports and evening explorations were all we had looked forward to and dreamt of! Captain introduced us the most idyllic islands that we did not knew existed. Chef introduced us special recipes and we had keeping asking for them! We have fell in love with Greece all over again thanks to the crew who matters most - Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
4-11 JUNE 2018
What an amazing trip! The crew were fantastic nothing was too much trouble! The food was amazing and we have enjoyed every meal! Captain John ensured a safe passage to wherever we asked to go and his knowledge is amazing! Paul says “we’ll be back!”
19 MAY – 2 JUNE 2018
This was our 10year wedding anniversary trip. We were married on the island of Hydra 5/22/2008. That trip is what Fairytales are made of. However, this trip by far exceeds what we ever expected. The crew of Project Steel went above ‘beyond to make our anniversary trip a very special romantic occasion as they helped to recreate our wedding day! They became our wedding party! What a wonderful day! Captain John totally earned our respect* trust as he navigated our journey through the most scenic, historic and beautiful locations in Greece! Peter and Thomas were the Captains right & left hands, they made us feel safe and the journey smooth and totally loved their smiles! Chef Myrto is an amazing, talented, creative, Michelin chef ad she uses her culinary skills to please any skeptical palate and she will keep you fat and happy haha! She could easily sell her own cookbook! Thank you all for this amazing experience!
18-25 September 2017
Thank you so much for all of the Project Steel crew for such an incredible holiday! The food has been delicious, as well as the cocktails and you have taken us to some of the most beautiful bays I have ever seen! You also create such a warm, relaxed atmosphere on board. An excellent family holiday, enjoyed by all. Thank you so much and all the best to come!
10-17 September 2017
I think I can speak for everyone when I say this was the best holiday we have ever had. All the staff could not have been more attentive, sweet, polite and on point. The beautiful yacht was the most luxurious with more than enough space for our group of twelve. We will be talking about the adventures that came with being on this boat and to all the picturesque swimming spots, beached and caves! We all love and appreciate you guys and thank you so much for putting up with our crazy crew. We will be recommending the crew, captain and Project runway to literally EVERYONE. We have all the best part exploded over social media anyway so it speaks for extent. We love you long time Ps..the food word class!
29 July – 5 August 2017
This has been an unbelievable Journey with the most dedicated crew; Captain John, Antony (great chef!), Thomas and all the crew were all great and made our trip unforgettable! We are all grateful of this incredible experience! Wish you all the best!
9-20 July 2017
First of all, I am very proud to say that we were the first to “try” Project Steel, Captain John and his amazing crew three years ago, when my husband told me that we were going to spend a week on a yacht, I was not very enthusiastic. Indeed, I come from a sailing background, I used to visit the Cyclades with my family on my parents sailing boat with my father as a skipper and my mum as a cook. So, to go on a yacht with a whole crew was a big jump! I enjoyed so much my first trip with Project Steel that I took the risk to bring my parents with us this time. And that was a real gamble! But it seems it was a great success! If I took the risk it is because of the boat sturdy, not too fast, not too noisy, not using too much fuel, the closest as you can get to a sailing boat. But most of all we took the risk because of captain John and his amazing crew! Captain John is also from a sailing background. He has a real respect from mother nature and a real love of the sea. And he is clever enough to choose a fantastic team! Antony is amazing! He was a very good cook 3 years ago but now he really is impressive! Elina, Mirto and Efi were very professional, caring efficient, nice and discrete. Nik and Thomas were very helpful with all the watersports and always enthusiastic! Again, we had an amazing time! Thank you to all of you!
5-12 June 2017
To the crew of Project Steel, thank you for helping create a wonderful memory for our families. The itinerary was perfect. We enjoyed the combination of hidden coves, the charming towns and our excursions. The boat was wonderful and the staff was exceptional! The captain was so accommodating and helped us create the perfect trip. The food was always delicious. Overall this trip exceeded our expectations and we hope to return in the near future. Thank you for everything!
Words cant express what wonderful week we had. Absolutely perfect. Thank you for everything. Keeping us safe, feeding us amazing food, sailing though storms, filling the hot tub, staying up too late, and teaching us Greek and so much more. We will miss all of you!
Thank you so much for the most amazing week! Everything about the holiday was superb with excellent food, lovely staff and much beautiful boat!
A wonderful trip, thank you all!!!
A perfect holiday on board Progect Steel. Hoe relaxed it made us all feel.
The staff so professional, friendly and kind doing all the toy cars they didnt seem to mind! Exciting water sports especially the jet ski. Brave little Max out in the deep sea! Antony, Maria, Roger, Peter, Nick and Captain John will all of the children his biggest fans. Amazing lunches, dinners and chocolate cakes, sorry for all the requests for milkshakes!
Salads, grocery, but we still asked for more getting our appetite swimming back from shore! Max as a Captain in sunglasses and hat and Teddy reading the tides currents and maps! Maria and Leo new best matters going not to be tripped up carrying the plates! Always looking to be on the biggest boat but we know this is the best ship afloat!
From ages 2 to 72 we have had the best holiday its all to sad we want to stay!
Thank you for absolutely everything you are ALL AMAZING and we wish Nick a speedy recovery!
Over and over again the crew of Project Steel exceeded our expectation! Many thanks for ebvery thing we look forward to be with you next August!
We are two families from Atlanta, Georgia on our first trip to Greece. This is what we did NOT like about our voyage on Project Steel
This is what we LOVED :
1)Captain John : If you look up captain in the dictionary, Johns name is listed. We always felt safe in his capable hands. Best Captain ever!
2)Peter(Takis) : Such a caring Indiradual who was always there to help (and secure wakeboard and paddle boarders).
3)Anthony(Adonis) : He perpetuates beauty externally and though hs preparation of food. Everyday was a culinary adventure.
4)Nick(Spiderman) : He made sucks we all had a fabulous time with him on water sports, especially Dominico!
5)Maria. Maria embodies everything that is beautiful about Greece! We begged her to go home with us.
6)Roger : the first person you see when you wake up and the last you see when you go to bed. Always smiling!
Project Steel was a great boat but without this crew it would not have been as wonderful. Because at the end of the day, its about the people along the journey with you!
Thank you for a trip of lifetime. An amazing experience and priceless memories. Thank you for the wonderful service where nothing was too much trouble and for spoiling our very lucky children. We will remember you all forever and will hopefully get to travel with you again one day.
The week was a dream. Thanks for showing us a little bit of Greek-magic-from your azure waters to your unparalleled flavors to your cliff allotted towers and overall wanting and the Greek people. This will go down as one of the best vacations of lifetime, and it was all due to your incredible kindness, hardwork and perfect planning. Thank you we will be back!
The Wyatt Family!
For the best chef and the best crew. They do the best job for us. They treat me and all the group in a messing way. The trip is excellent in everything. This memory is going to stay in our heart forever. Thank you soooo much for what you did forus.

Best my friends,
Περάσαμε 10 θαυμάσιες μέρες πάνω στο Project Steel με ένα αρμονικό πλήρωμα κι ένα καπετάνιο που μας άραζε στα πιο ειδυλλιακά και όμορφα σημεία. Φεύγουμε με τις καλύτερες εντυπώσεις απ όλα και όλους, σκοπεύοντας να το επαναλάβουμε και του χρόνου.
It was a great trip! Beautiful Greek Islands, blue sky and amazing view. Clear water, and great mood. You were unbelievable crew. Always there for us. We had a great time, enjoying the best vacation.
Thank you all, hope to come back soon!
We will not talk about the beauty of the Greek Islands because that is a fact, rather we will talk about the wonderful crew that made our voyage more than a yacht experience.
If you are even in the company of such a crew then you are as lucky as a King!
Best regards to all and keep up the good work!
Mohannad, Adel, Haytham, Alaa, Mohammad
We are a family of five coming from Switzerland and a friend coming from Bruxelles.
We just spent a fabulous week travelling from Faliro to Serifos via Amorgos and its fabulous monastery, Koufonisi and its wonderful beaches, Schoinousa, Irakleia ...Paros...
Coming to Greece we were looking for authenticity, peace, quietness beauty.
And that is just what we found!
The captain was excellent at finding beautiful unspoilt spots to swim and do all sorts of water sports.
The team was great, nothing to say! Professional helpful enthusiastic kind and last but not least they all seemed to get along together. The food on board was very good, homemade and fresh and the comfort of the beds was excellent. Thank you to team who made our trip a real success.
