Zorba Cat Description

“Happy is the man, I thought, who, before dying, has the good fortune to sail the Aegean sea” Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek From hidden anchorages away from the tourist hustle and bustle to traditionally Greek seaside tavernas - Zorba Cat truly offers guests an unforgettable authentic sailing journey in Greece. From family friendly charters to voyages for couples or friends, She certainly has something for everyone. Zorba Cat sails the Greek islands in comfort and style, providing guests with a luxurious sailing experience. She is a modern Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera 60ft catamaran. Fountaine Pajot is one of the world’s number one builders of cruising catamarans and the Eleuthera 60 was called their flagship. This yacht was very quickly appreciated by the customers due to its sailing performances along with a high level of comfort. ZORBA Cat is not only the name of the boat, it’s the philosophy behind it: You only have one life so enjoy every minute of it and create wonderful memories - that’s how one can sum up the adventures of Zorba the Greek written by Nikos Kazantzakis. Owners and crew, Aga and Greg share his love for Greece - the slow life, marvellous sunny landscape and kind people with unbreakable optimism. They appreciate the beauty of nature, the joy of life, good music and great food. So when you are on board of Zorba Cat, naturally you begin to share this philosophy and feel its good influence. “I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.” ― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek A sailing experience in Greece with a luxury catamaran is accessible to all ages and abilities. Her simple rig makes her a leisurely sail with winch systems and modern navigation equipment. Unlike some catamarans, she’s a great boat to sail, whether you’re an experienced sailor looking for some sunshine or a novice wanting to try something new. Aga and Greg who have been organising sailing holidays in Greece and Caribbean for the last 16 years. Due to their sailing background, they chose exactly this model as a strong and high-speed sailing catamaran capable of safely crossing oceans with comfort. The shape of the hulls makes Zorba Cat not only beautiful, but also incredible from the nautical point of view. Whenever possible, the boat will be going on sails being environment-friendly and creating opportunities for gaining sailing knowledge for those interested, while others can relax, sunbathe and enjoy fast sailing at ease with a glass of wine in their hand. The itineraries prepared by the crew are the absolute best of what Greece has to offer. Their local knowledge will guide you to the crystal clear blue sea, small harbours away from tourist crowds and their passion for food and wine will enable you to taste Greece in a way exceeding expectations. Variety of unique attractions arranged with locals is an additional value of the holiday. From healing baths in volcanic hot springs, through UNESCO heritage

Captain - Greg
Being born just by the seaside, Greg has been sailing all his life. When he was younger, he was racing in regattas as a part of the professional Polish sailing team, where he gained the experience to cope with every possible weather condition and learned to overcome any difficulties. He has sailed thousands of miles on different seas and oceans. We could risk the statement that he has spent more time on the water than on land, but who’s counting, right?

Seventeen years ago, he gave up his role as director of a big international company and started to live on his boat permanently, organising commercial sailing trips. He realised that life is too short to spend it in the office, and the world is too beautiful to leave it unexplored. He crossed the Atlantic many times, both ways, and since then counts his “job” as a professional skipper.
Greg is an International Sailing School Association (ISSA) instructor with the possibility of issuing a skipper certificate as well as a captain with no limits and an instructor accredited by the Polish Sailing Association. Having Greg as their captain, guests will experience his remarkable sailing and mooring skills and surely feel safe in any weather conditions.

Chef - Aga
A film producer in “previous life,´ joined Greg eight years ago when she came for a sailing holiday on board’s Greg’s boat and never left! Since that moment, it has been her job to take care of all guests and make them feel at home - something she’s certainly a natural at. She will show guests all the hidden gems, take care of all the logistics around the trip, and solve any issue that may occur. She will explain what each island has to offer, as well as recommend the best viewpoints and local spots. Her enthusiasm to give guests the best high quality sailing experience on Zorba Cat is unquestionable, and her love of Greece from the water is truly infectious!

Aga is the chef on board cruises. Guests can expect delicious, healthy, fresh, and truly local meals (often said to be the reason for returning on board Zorba Cat). The products used on board are organic, some of them homemade, while others are bought at local fresh vegetable and fish markets or come directly from local friend’s gardens. Aga, using her nutrition knowledge, will do her best to provide healthy, mouth-watering meals that not only influence the body´s well-being but also feed the soul.
Her motto: from the farm to Zorba´s table!!! She uses healthy/local food for preparing healthy (and delicious) local meals by not using inflammatory products like processed foods, white sugar, white flour, flavor enhancers. She cooks only with olive oil, coconut oil or ghee (no pro-inflammatory oils like sunflower) and limits glucose spikes in meals (to prevent/fight diabetes) etc. Aga uses FETA cheese made by her friends mother from her own goats milk, and in general it is a pleasure for her to accommodate any dietary needs, as she knows what it means to live gluten free.

Deckhand: Tomasz Łukaszewski

Tomasz is a 45 years old individual from Poland and is the experienced deckhand to complete the crew on Zorba cat. He speaks fluent English and brings a wealth of sailing expertise to the team. With two decades of seasonal work on various sailing vessels, including Zorba cat, he has proven himself to be a reliable and dedicated deckhand. His calm demeanor and hard-working nature make him an easy-going presence on board, always committed to ensuring the comfort and safety of everyone on board. His impressive sailing resume includes crossing the Atlantic as a deckhand on a sailing yacht and numerous deliveries across the Mediterranean. Additionally, he has extensive sailing experience in the Caribbean, Cabo Verde, the Mediterranean, and the Baltic Sea. Having been friends with Greg and Aga for the past 16 years, we are confident that he is a valuable and trustworthy addition to the crew.
