Get away from it all on board the traditional Greek sailing boat Morgkan, chartered for your very own customised cruise!

Always anxious to please, Captain Bertrand Benoît will sail Morgkan and her guests to the heart of the Aegean, visiting the most hidden and well preserved Cycladic islands and providing his passengers with the utmost comfort whilst on board.

Whether you are the romantic or sporty type, or culturally orientated, this getaway is the ideal opportunity for a family holiday break, a celebration of a special occasion such as a honeymoon or simply a friends get-together, but with a difference!

Soak up the gentle softness of Greece, savour its traditional varied cuisine and take in the beauty of its incomparable landscapes!


Built by the monks of Saint Oros in Mount Athos, Morgkan is a "trechantiris", a traditional boat designed for the Aegean Sea.

Characterised by their great stability, strength and their spacious interior, the trechantiris have ruled the Greek seas for centuries, as fishing boats and for transport. Traditional fishermen favour it over other types of boat, simply for its stability, rendering it the safest on what can sometimes be unpredictable waters.

Fully refurbished in 2012-2013, Morgkan is especially adapted to yacht cruises. Thanks to its generous width, it offers 2 comfortable double berth en suite cabins, one lovely 4 berth cabin, suitable for children and adults alike, and a particularly attractive living/kitchen space.

The captain's quarters are at a distance from the passenger area, thus affording the privacy and discretion required, as well as the peace and quietness essential for the smooth running of any cruise.

Aboard Morgkan you can also enjoy an outdoor living area and a superb sundeck.


Born in France, Bertrand Benoît started sailing from a very young age. After 15 years on board classic sailing boats, such as Errol Flynn's famous "Karenita", working side by side with experienced sailors, he decided to ride the waves on his own boat.

He anchored his Morgkan in Amorgos, in the heart of the Aegean, which, in his eyes, is the most beautiful sailing area in the world. He's a licensed professional skipper and knows all the secrets of the Greek islands!
