I cannot in all honesty recommend ND sails. The boat was not as advertised and carried far too many defects resulting in me spending most of my time trying to fix the problems myself or communicating by text with ND. As we were out in the islands any practical assistance was difficult. Below is a list of defects which ruined our holiday.
If you enjoy boat maintenance then this is the charterer for you:
Fwd hatch u/s. Boat offered in an unseaworthy state.

Chart plotter u/s

Speed log u/s

Wind speed and direction instrument intermitent, mostly u/s.

Charts and pilot books out of date 2007/2014.

Fwd port toilet blocked day one.

A few days later aft toilet blocked. Both toilets dismantled and unblocked by me.
These pipes need regular maintenance to avoid build up of waste, obviously not being done.

Fwd starboard toilet no power thursday. €200 for technician to change relay, paid by me.

Domestic battery alarm sounding frequently even after recent engine running. When charging batteries should show a charge of 13.8 to 14v. None achieve this. After charging the domestic battery shows 11.8V, suggesting this battery is beyond it’s best and would possibly explain the fridge not working when on battery alone.

Fridge barely servicable. Only seemed to work when the batteries are being charged from either engine or generator.
Not good not having a fridge for two weeks.

Fridge hinge broken

Fridge does not drain. If we put ice in to help, next morning food is swimming in water.
During debriefing Nikolas showed us the switch to pump out fridge. Suggest poor briefing.

Generator failed on Saturday. Technician organised by me in Naxos cleaned filter and added a squeeze bulb in the fuel line. Still failed after a few minutes.
Generator supplied air con and AC for USB ports which charged phones. Phones were our source of navigation with the chart plotter being u/s. Second week spent with no generator.
A holiday spent with no fidge or air con was no fun on a boat with eight people.

Zip on canopy dodger window broken

Deck floodlights u/s

Steaming lights u/s

Nav lights u/s

Reading light in aft starboard cabin u/s

Water gauges appear to be u/s. With eight people on board showering daily, a water gauge would have been extremely useful. Not having this information was stressfull.

Gates in stanchion lifelines unable to open.

On last evening the shower drain in aft starboard toilet failed to drain.

The Most terrible Charter Team ever

It was by far the worst and most unfriendly charter team in Europe. Despite the negative reviews we chartered a boat with nd sails, the handover was very exhausting as the staff were in a bad mood. To shorten the whole thing, the toilets smelled disgusting, the water constantly overflowed or the pump didn't work. The cabins were dirty. The motor of the dinghy didn't work, so we always had to paddle when we wanted to go ashore. Never again ND Sails !!

Hello, we are sorry to read your review and the issues listed. We are also surprised, because these matters were not addressed directly to us at base or during the charter. Our technicians use the check-out from previous guests to identify and repair, clean and maintain order on board. Then your check-in includes an exhaustive technical list that everything is in working order. Every client has multiple opportunities during check-in to express dissatisfaction to allow us to immediately respond. Check-in is also the time to teach new sailors how to use marine toilets and other equipment. For the time during charter, our experienced skippers also keep the yacht and crew safe and running smoothly during charter. When the yacht is taken bareboat, then the client skipper assumes this responsibility. Nevertheless, as with all our clients, we provide the direct telephone number for technical support and advice, to assist in correct use of equipment on board and help in making adjustments on board. If needed, we provide prompt repairs through our island partner technicians. We resolve minor issues quickly when brought to our attention. We had no telephone calls about water overflow or the dinghy motor not working. Finally, we strive to leave the customers happy, especially if items on the yacht require further attention on our part that, logistically, we address after the charter when the yacht is returned. In these instances, we like to offer a bonus service with our compliments to clients. Since this review has no details on which yacht or charter dates, we cannot comment on the specifics. Our maintenance checks found dinghy motors and pumps in working order. Once more, we firmly believe that direct and prompt communication during the charter wins over text in a late TripAdvisor review. We wish you a safe winter.

I would like to thank you Guys from ND Sails!
It was my third charter with this very friendly and professional company.
This time we have pleasure to sail on fantastic Euphoria , 51 ft Oceanis 51.1 . Perfect yacht, very well equipped, in perfect condition for sailing. Very comfortable for 8-9 person. Very fast in half winds !!!
We did very long trip, close 400 Nm!! starting from North Cyclades ( Kea, Kythnos, Andros ) we sailed to North Sporades ( Skiathos, Skopelos ). It was fantastic sailing time for me and my crew.
For sure we comeback to Nd Sails and to Sporades!

The unexplainable beauty that I witnessed this summer was extraordinary. I got to view my homeland in a way that I would have never thought I could. It was an experience I will never forget. Besides the amazing conditions of the boat, everything was a smooth process. It really felt like a vacation, a true escape from reality. I am so grateful I got to experience such an amazing trip and I am excited to experience it again and again.

I just took my family on the Beneteau 51.1 "Euphoria". The boat is NEW, spacious, well equipped, easy to handle and above all a good sailor for a production cruising boat of that size. For our group of eight is was really comfortable. Because of Melteni winds blowing we choose for the Peloponnissis Islands option which was a lovely discovery. Over 6 days sailed about 230 NM in perfect weather conditions visiting Hydra, Spetses, Poros, Epidavros and Aegina. Moored only once in port and had only once the tender out. Boat Taxi's are a really good solution to combine anchoring in beautiful bays and enjoying evenings in these picturesque towns without trouble. Lavrio is a perfect base, close to the airport and depending on the conditions right in the middle between the more windy Cyclades and the Saronic sea. Don't stay there at night unless you like clubbing because it is very noisy. The team at ND Sails showed to be delivering. They were flexible in changing dates after booking was confirmed. Their welcome was swift and friendly and they inspired trust which is for me most important as check out is something that is in your mind during your week on a chartered boat. I booked the week via Zizoo who for me are a label of quality and have one of the best offers I have come across.

The flight arrived in Athens and we were met by a transfer, which ND Sails had arranged for us. Once on board, we were met by the skipper, who helped us settle in Marla’s four cabins. First, we reviewed the boat, its equipment and then our pre-ordered provisions arrived, which we had also organized via ND Sails.

The skipper discussed and asked us about our thoughts and expectations and what we wanted to get out of the trip. Together we set up a sailing route, depending on the existing weather and wind. Our trip initially took us south for 2 days, then night sailing to the west. The skipper was experienced and took us safely through everything, including darkness, waves, wind. It was quite an experience to sail in the Cyclades and Saronic waters and to see the magic of sailing under the stars.

Despite the end of season, late September / early October, Greece offered fine ‘Swedish high summer weather’, similar sun and bathing water temperatures. The children, ages from 4 years up to and including 17 years amused themselves swimming off the boat, and snorkeling in bays where we stopped. Thank you, ND Sails for a good trip.

We had a fantastic trip to the Greek Islands and it was all thanks to ND Sails. From the second we booked our trip, Nicolas was very attentive in answering all our questions and making us aware of the details we needed to know in order to have the best vacation. Our boat was exactly as we expected and our crew (skipper and hostess) were FANTASTIC. Kostas, our skipper, was very knowledgeable about where to take us to make sure we saw as much of the different islands as possible. He kept us safe, on time and entertained. Maria, our hostess, made the most delicious food and was very attentive to our needs. She also kept the boat clean and made us laugh! I would highly recommend a trip to the Greek islands with ND Sails

We chartered the boat towards the end of the summer season and toured four islands in the Cyclades. The boat has four cabins and a bunk-bed room (5 rooms total) and can accommodate many people comfortably.We all easily stayed comfortable within the cabins with extra space to spare. The boat also has a great communal area with plenty of comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. The kitchen is stocked with everything you may need to cook a nice meal at sea. The best parts of the trip were anchoring the boat by hidden beaches that can only be accessed from the sea. There is something very special about swimming in crystal clear water off the shores of a tiny beach that is surrounded by the cliffs of a beautiful Greek Island. I would recommend chartering a boat in Greece to anyone interested – it was by far the best trip I’ve ever been on!! – and ND Sails did an amazing job making sure we had an amazing trip!

During this trip, eight people plus a toddler were able to fit in the boat’s cabins without any problems. Chartering your own boat allows you to go at your own speed. You could spend a week exploring a bunch of islands or choose only a few to explore in greater depths – all at your own leisure, spending the days swimming, exploring, and enjoying the beauty of the Greek Islands! As you can tell, we enjoy the Greek Islands and always rely on ND Sails to organize an amazing vacation! We’re grateful to have found ND Sails and look forward to many more trips in the future, with more family and friends!
