Slow Cruising

M/S Achilleas

M/S Achilleas is a 23-meter (75 ft) traditional Greek wooden 'kaiki' (Caïque) that provides its guests the unique experience of “slow cruising” the Greek islands in the crystal-clear Mediterranean Sea.

Handcrafted by master shipbuilders and recently upgraded to meet the highest standards of comfort, fuel efficiency and safety, this graceful kaiki is 23 meters (75ft) long, fully staffed by an experienced crew of three (in separate quarters), and comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests. The slow cruising experience offers a reinvigorating, stress-free break from the many demands of our hectic lifestyles.  A tranquil and soothing cruise vacation where everything is taken care of, allowing you to relax with friends and family and find the time to soak in and enjoy the boat, the sea, the sun, the people, the towns, the food, the culture, the history, and most importantly the moment.  Our focus is on the authentic, traditional, unique experience that only the Greek sea and islands can offer. Rather than trying to see as much as possible as fast as possible, slow cruising is about serenity, precious moments, elegant experiences, and unforgettable feelings – quality over quantity.
