Sail Ionian (stand J160 http://www.sailionian.com) is a family owned and operated yacht charter business based on the island of Lefkada, Greece. They operate the newest, best maintained charter fleet in the Ionian and pride themselves on outstanding customer service, winning a TripAdvisor Travellers Choice award.
Sail Ionian leads the industry in innovation in luxury small yacht charter. Driving green energy solutions forward with the introduction of lithium batteries to 35% of the charter fleet this year. Lithium has both a higher safe discharge level and a much higher cycle life than old, dirty, AGM lead batteries. This is game changing in the way power is managed on board. Combined with solar panels and electric outboards, Sail Ionian’s charter fleet is the greenest, most environmentally friendly choice.
Sail Ionian’s guests want new, luxurious charter yachts and the fleet has seven brand new Bavaria yachts joining this summer; a C38, 3 C42s, a Vision 42, a C45 and a C50. The 2024 season will see at least another four; a Cruiser 37, C38, Open 40 catamaran and another C50 consolidating the market leading yacht selection.
We are installing air conditioning running from solar panels and lithium batteries on small yachts. Previously air conditioning has only been available on larger yachts, and could not be run from batteries, only with a generator or shore power connection. This is a charter market world-wide first. A Bavaria 33 and a Cruiser 36 will be first and will enable guests to cool the boat in the evening before they retire. The air-conditioning units are variable speed, very quiet as you sleep, and, as the outside temperature goes down, they will slowly let the temperature rise as you sleep, so battery energy consumption is kept to a minimum.
