About Istion Yachting
Istion yachting was established in 1992 by Ioannis Kourounis. Initially the company started with a small fleet of sailing yachts based in Kos Island in the Dodecanese where it grew rapidly and established the south-east Aegean as one of the most popular sailing destinations in the Eastern Mediterranean.
With our success came the establishing of what is now our headquarters in Athens along with another charter base in Lefkas in the Ionian island chain on Greece's western coast. Soon Istion Yachting was recognized as a leading yacht charter company in Greece offering bareboat, skippered and crewed yacht charters throughout Greece.
With our strong background, we are proud to have established a remarkable reputation through an international network of trusted charter agents and of course with our sailing clients and friends.
Our successful course so far is the direct result of the hard work and dedication of the Istion Yachting team and the strong bond of trust we have formed with you, our guests. Thanks to your preference we have grown, we have become better and we now continue our efforts to expand our horizons with new and innovative sailing services of premium quality.
