Eclipse Sailing creates yachting holidays especially for honeymoons

Eclipse Sailing, based in Volos, Greece, offers sailing holidays on a classic yacht in the Greek islands particularly with honeymooners in mind. Their classic yacht, Nereida, designed in 1944 by John G. Alden, is a beautiful and intimate wooden sailing yacht. Inside, she is furnished in classic style, panelled in mahogany with leather seats and brass fittings. Their tailor-made holidays are designed for those special times in your lives when you just want to share time alone.

“Most of the classic yachts doing the Mediterranean circuit have 6 or 8 cabins,” says UK- born director, Charlotte Glascock, “which is fine for large families or a big group of friends. But even if you know five other couples you’d be happy going on holiday with, when you’re on honeymoon twelve is definitely a crowd.”

Nereida has one master cabin in the bow, with crew quarters at the stern, assuring complete privacy, but there is no reason to sleep on board if you don’t want to.

“Many of our honeymooners choose to sleep on shore,” says Charlotte. “It gives you a chance to see a bit more of the islands and to do your own thing of an evening.”

Eclipse Sailing offer various destinations in the Greek islands, including Aidipsos, where hot mineral springs run into the sea; lively Skiathos, where you can party the night away, and beautiful, unspoilt Alonnisos whose turquoise seas form the largest marine park in Europe.


Eclipse Sailing is an English-Greek partnership offering unique tailor-made sailing holidays in the Greek islands on, Nereida,  a classic John Alden Rena Class Sailing Yacht. Only a handful of these beautiful boats are in existence: Designed in 1944 by John Alden, one of the greatest naval architects of all time, the Rena yachts are considered by many as amongst the most elegant yachts ever built and included royalty amongst their proud owners. Fully restored by the current owners in 2012, Nereida  fully conforms to modern European safety standards.

Eclipse Sailing offers private skipper charter and group sailing holidays in the Greek islands. Weddings and honeymoons a speciality.
