Syros Yacht Charter

The Island of Syros, also known as Syra and Siros, lies in the central region of the Cyclades in Greece. Being part of this island complex, the island terrain is generally barren and hilly, as with other islands that are located within the Aegean Sea. Syros is also the capital of the island cluster and considered by superyacht sailors and other yacht charter enthusiast as an important destination for those spending their Greece Yacht Charter vacations in the Mediterranean.

The island’s main port, Ermoupolis, is also its capital. It is a charming town that is organized in a concentric manner, which was established around the sites where we can find old buildings and structures that bear strong neoclassical and Venetian influence. Just like with the other popular island destinations in the region, Syros is home to several quaint villages, most of which are found along the coastline.

This is something that sailing yachts as well as luxury motor yachts should be aware of when considering a yacht charter vacation in this area of Greece. However, there may be short episodes during summer where the wind intensity can go as high as 7 on the Beaufort scale.
