We chartered a catamaran including the captain. We were sailing with our 3 grown up sons and a friend. We were very impressed with the professionalism of Istion as far and the paperwork was concerned, safety and cleanliness of the vessel. Above all our captain, Zacharias made the trip so special, a great balance between safety first and fun. Before our trip had finished, we were planning the next one. Thank you Istion.

We chartered a ship for one week in April for a proper sailing trip and really enjoyed our stay. The staff at the base in Rhodes is really nice and helpful.
We had a quite an adventurous trip with the boat (lost steering). One component must have failed (steel cable), but the crew of the base was reachable 24/7 and quickly came up with a solution for us.
Would definitly book there again, if you go there greet Fotis and his team from me.

Really nothing to say about the boat and the super available team on land. My only regret, that might make me avoid Istion Yachting in general, is the deposit which can only be in Credit Card. Debit Card or other ways are not accepted, sorry, I have no Credit Card and I won't pay for one if no need. But if you have a Credit Card, go for it, I was with Istion in Rhodes and Mikonos also, great team and good boats.

Dear Nomad796441, Thank you for trusting Istion Yachting with your sailing holidays! We are glad you are satisfied by the level of service and we will be happy to organize your sailing holidays once more! In terms of your payment method issue we really do apologize for the inconvenience this caused you and affected your overall journey experience with us! More specifically the issue with Debit cards and why we prefer not to pursuit transactions with them is that fees are taxed and upholded by banks pre and post-charge of the charter. As per the security deposit required from you prior to your charter we commongly prefer to use Credit Cards for our transactions for our customers' protection as they could help reduce costly chargebacks and other transaction fees issued solely by the affiliated banks. The Pre authorization hold issued by the Credit Card is what secures your Security Deposit and protects it from further oncoming taxes and fees issued when opting for Debit Cards. Taking this into consideration we extremely value your input and as we would highly enjoy to have you sail with us again rest assured that we will explore a variety payment methods to best accommodate your needs. Once again, thank you for sailing with us! We hope to see you again in the future! Warm regards

We have charted from Istion before, but never on Rhodes. We also chartered boats from other companies all over Greece (and in other countries). Our experience at Istion base on Rhodes was certainly below average. Negative points:
- Same staff is maintaining boats of several charter companies, and there is not enough staff (or too many boats). As a result, everything takes a lot of time and no request is fulfilled. Some things on our boat were missing or broken but have to leave without them as the staff did not manage to replace them in time.
- While some member of the staff are nice and customer-oriented, the base manage was rather rude.
- They could not deliver bed linen until 16:00, never saw anything like that in Greece. We actually had to wait for bed-linen and could not leave the harbour.
- Bed linen: even at 16:00, when we were all ready to leave, bed linen were still not delivered to the

On the positive side:
- Rhodes marina is convenient and well organized
- Many staff members are courteous and pleasant people

We had a great time, but check-out experience at Istion base was definitely a lowlight.
