Is duty-free fuel for yachts available in the East Med?
All commercially registered yachts under charter can obtain duty free fuel. At OCEDA we handle all necessary formalities with the port and customs authorities to allow for duty-free fueling. We advise Captains intending to fuel with duty-free fuel during their charter in Greece to contact us prior to arriving in Greece to finalise all paperwork in advance.
Duty-free fuel is available for private and commercially registered yachts in Albania. At Oceda we are able to cover all duty-free fueling needs working closely with our local partner in Sarande and Durres.
Duty-free fuel is available for private and commercially registered yachts in Turkey subject to such yachts exiting Turkish waters within 24 hours of fueling. At Oceda we are able to cover all duty-free fueling needs working closely with our local partner at all the main marinas/ports on the Turkish coastline.
How is Covid-19 affecting travel in Greece?
Find out what is the latest Covid-19 guidance from the official government portal.
What are the charter duration and booking lead time?
The charter duration depends on the yacht’s availability. A charter can last from 1 day (for some of the yachts) to more than a month, also depending on how long the charterer wants to charter. To ensure finding the perfect yacht for you we recommend that clients reach out to us at least 6 months in advance to the high season and up to three months in advance for off-peak season.
Where can Crew Changes happen?
Crew changes cannot be made everywhere in Greece. Only in Athens, Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakynthos, Lefkas, Syros, Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos, Samos, Patmos, and Mykonos. The boat must be at the port or on anchor at the location where the immigration process is happening. For example, the boat cannot be in Paros Island and her crew to embark or disembark in Athens.
In Non-EU crew member disembarkations, the disembarking crew must repatriate, thus an air-ticket to their home country is required. The non-EU crew members to be embarked in Greece, must be arriving from a non-Schengen area. EU crew members can come in Greece to embark, or fly to anywhere they like when they disembark, or even stay in Greece, but they also must pass through the embarkation/disembarkation process at the immigration office
