Greg Hober – USA September 2015
From the moment we stepped onto the spacious catamaran, we were treated like family. Tasty meals, lively conversation and beautiful scenery were part of each day of our sail.
The waters of the Aegean are beautiful and each island we visited was unique. We enjoyed relaxing on the "nets" at the front of the boat while traveling from one island to another. They were comfortable and roomy enough for all six of us to read and relax together.
Chris and his wife never seemed to tire of our questions about the boat, navigation, sailing and the islands. They gave us ideas at each stop of where to swim, places to visit and places to eat. You may even be asked to go the bakery in the morning to pick up fresh bread!

We have just got back to Australia after our three weeks with you and Christa on board the Isokratia.
All my family of five had the best time we can remember. The boat, your and Christa's friendship, the food, the Greek islands: there is no way i can prioritise that list it was all so wonderful.
I want anyone who reads this testimonial to know that they wont find a better way to come to the islands. If they are lucky enough to be able to come with you they should jump at it.
My family is setting me hard to work so we can come back again.
See you soon.

My experience on Isokratia definitely exceeded my expectations. The boat was in perfect conditions and it is actually larger than what it seems in the pictures of the website. Everything is clean and functional. You can't go wrong when visiting the Greek islands but the captain made sure that the route we took was the one most accommodating to our needs. It's important to mention that the itinerary was flexible in case we wanted to make last minute changes and/or spend more or less time in one place. Our relationship with the captain and mate was more one of friendship than anything else. They both definitely made us feel at home. I will do it again for sure.

I boarded Isokratia in 2011 for a week in the month of September with 2 friends and I had one of the best holidays of my life.
Communication with Chris (the skipper and owner) was very easy from the first e-mail. He gave us route recommendations, organized embarkation and disembarkation perfectly and made the process extremelly easy for us.
There was never a confusion nor a bad word in the communication, in fact, Chris was very patient and tried to help us when we had last minute unexpected changes.
The boat is very large and extremelly confortable. The rooms are very spacious and the bathrooms the best I have seen until now on a boat. The living room is very cozy and the outside table very convenient for meals and chatter. The mate (Jui) kept our rooms clean and cooked very nice meals. He also caught fresh fish which he prepared for us. We were not expecting such succulent meals!
We had explained to Chris that we were ready for a very relaxing holiday and THAT is what he gave us! The islands he chose were perfect for what we were looking for and matched our needs completely.
I highly recommend Chris and Isokratia for a trip round the Greek islands, I am sure I will be sailing on this boat again next year.

Sailing in Cyclades in May 2011 with the Isokratia catamaran was one of the top holiday experiences we ever had till now. During the three weeks we sailed, we anchored on most of the important islands and visited them. It was marvellous, each of them is different and has its own story!
We appreciated being on board of the Isokratia catamaran for at least three reasons:
- An excellent crew, led by captain Chris Neophytou, that made us feel secure and happy all the journey
- Custom-designed and carrefully assembled with selected materials and top-class equipment, Isokratia is surely the safest sailing boat we saw till now. There was no problem to sail every day, even when strong winds and currents were keeping other boats in the marinas
- Confortable and spacious bedrooms and sun-bathing spaces (the upfront suspended net was marvellous) that make up to 4 couples feel at ease
We are looking forward to sail Aegean and Ionian Seas and to visit other Greek islands with the same boat and crew!
We are now back home and wanted to drop a short note to thank you for the wonderful time we had. I am speaking for all of us when I say that this has been a fabulous week that will be remembered.
Thank you also for the video and photos.
Please pass along our thanks to Jui for all his help and may you have a great time in the rest of your travels.

All in all ISokratia is the best sailing catamaran we ever experienced. The best sailing holidays we ever had because of the luxury, comfort and safety of the boat. We have chartered sailing catamarans each year for the last 6 years. We found ISokratia a unique sailing catamaran. Luxury, comfort and safety were best.
ISokratia offered the most comfortable sail we ever experienced even in rough weather. Being an all weather boat, it gave us the freedom to be on the move to the next island where other boats were bound in harbour by weather conditions.
Our family are all tall. It was a pleasure to be able to walk straight without having to bend down wherever we were in ISokratia. The saloon is and the hulls and cabins are all 2.25meters high which made it a pleasure to go about without risking banging our heads. The passages in the hulls are wide as well as tall with many safety holding rails all around. The saloon with two settees and tables offered extensive comfort with full views . The movie surround cinema center with flat screen TV offered that extra luxury in relaxation during nights we decided to stay on board. The children had all the entertainment required to keep them busy and happy.
The safety first principle of the skipper offered us additional comfort feeling secure in all our sailing. This enabled us to relax and sunbathe without any tension. The large Ferrari trampolines were the best we ever experienced. Room enough for all 10 of us to sunbathe whilst underway or in anchor. Supper comfort as we were able to just lay down without any mattress or pillows for long hours. The small holes made it safe and secure for the young children on board.
ISokratia is the best recommendation we can make.
SY-RU - Ionion
The luxury and comfort we experienced on the boat added that extra pleasure to make it one of our best sailing holidays.
ISokratia made our holidays the best we ever had in sailing around the Greek islands. We could stop for swimming in four and five different beaches every day. Spectacular unspoiled beaches accessible only from the sea.
Tall ceilings wide passage in hulls, two settees, full of all amenities.
The boat has every possible electronic required with reserves to make our sailing safe and comfort. Knowing this gave us that extra feeling of being secure.
The food was another pleasant surprise. Proper cooking that match the best of restaurants. Barbequing on remote bays gave that extra sparkle of being out in the nature. Whilst the movie center and extensive children’s movies kept the young ones fully busy and happy giving us the time to relax more knowing they were safe on board.
The comfort and stability of ISokratia when under way with or without weather enable us to sunbathe on the large comfortable trampolines not wasting any time of our holidays.
We will be back on ISokratia . We can not stop talking about ISokratia to our family and friends.
A rare all weather boat. We will be back soon. We will gladly recomend ISokratia to anyone who looks for comfort and style combined with safety.
Thank you ISokratia you have won our hearts!
