The Valef Yachts Experience "Custom Tailored Bliss!"
In 1969, Vassilios (Bill) Lefakinis founded Valef Yachts, the first yacht charter company in Greece. As Valef Yachts welcomed tourists from abroad eager to visit the beauty of Greece's untouched and vibrant islands in the comfort and luxury of their own charter yacht, the yachting world of Greece opened to the world. With an office in Marina Zeas, Greece and services ranging from crewing, sales to publishing Greece's first yachting magazine, 'Sea & Yachting', the industry began booming. Now with offices in the USA and in Greece, the full-service yacht charter company well known for its expert guidance, personal touch, and client pampering, offers yacht charters all over the Mediterranean, Turkey, and the Adriatic. The legacy continues with the Lefakinis family still at the helm and ready to serve. The experienced Team gives attention to details that make the difference, from food provisioning to organizing activities on the islands catered to guests’ needs.
The Next Generation
Passing know-how, knowledge and tradition down through the generations helped secure Valef as the reputable company that drives return clientele. The backbone of the company is the family name that Valef derives from and remains honored by excellence from half a century of yachting knowledge and customer service.

In English the word is “pampered”. We loved it. Again, this is the reason we give you our highest recommendation.

My companions and I achieved this glorious state of free-floating delight last May by setting out from Athens’ harbor at Piraeus in a seventy-seven foot motor sailer, rented though Valef Yachts….
