I initially booked the Fountaine Pajot Lipari which was sold just before my arrival. The local operator upgraded me to a beautiful, and fully equipped 2019 Lagoon 42 - 4 + 2, no charge, at an already reduced off-season price. We arrived later than expected for a very smooth check in, and the staff worked late providing ground transportation to the supermarket for provisions. VIP service all around!
The Local operator has a large charter fleet in Athen's largest marina at Alimos, with a convenient, excellent restaurant central to all moorings. No need to look further to compare elsewhere.
The Lagoon 42 was flawless, spacious, comfy, and a "breeze" to sail easily single handed. Dingy outboard started right up too!!! Although two dock lines were slightly frayed, the extra lines were in perfect, as new shape, which we did use one night tied in 40kt winds. Being late in the season, we did miss two days sailing due to weather. The lack of crowds and wide open dockage was well worth the tradeoff. Athens should be a "bucket list" adventure for sailors with their close by quaint islands, and unparalleled sights of ancient civilization. The Acropolis is mind-boggling impressive.

Five Stars all around.
Boat, skipper, location (saronic islands) was all perfect.
The charter is pretty good. Position in Lavrion is convenient to go either Kiklades or Saronic. Check-in was about 1 hour and check-out was about half an hour. Great assistance, we have issues with windlass due to cases in the previous charter, but windlass was charged to the new one on the next mooring. We had to spend one day there, but it made a little change to our plans. Anyway, online assistance was fast enough, any messages had been answered in minutes. Hope to rent a boat next time here.
The boat is in a pretty good shape, has all basic necessities for comfortable sailing
