Yacht Charter DADDY'S HOBBY By Lagoon
Contact Us For More Information
Andreas has been sailing extensively the Greek waters, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic for a number of years.
He has been captain on board KEPI for the past season, and this year he continues his successful career onboard DADDY'S HOBBY.
Andreas was born in Aegina and ever since he was a little child he realized that travelling and the sea were the loves of his life. He has acquired a hands-on-experience with technical issues during his long travels and many skills that help him maintain the yacht he is sailing on in top condition.
As a personality, he has a serene disposition, and remains calm under stressful situations. One of his main attributes is his discretion and gentle attitude, which make his guests feel relaxed and at ease. He is never tired of sailing, always ready to move to the next bay, happy to introduce to his guests sites of unique beauty, and help them discover off-the-beaten-track spots.
Iliana is working in the yachting industry for the last 3 years as cook - stewardess in charter motor and sailing yachts. Her love for nature and sailing was instrumental in her decision to work this eason onboard in Daddy’s Hobby.
She has worked as cook and chef assistant in restaurants for years but her passion is cooking while traveling amongst these magnificent landscapes. She loves going to local markets and choosing fresh products that reflects the flavours of each island.
She specialises in Greek - Mediterranean plates, but is no stranger to the international cuisine. Also she has experience as barista and bartender.
Iliana speaks English. She has studied cinematography and her interests include acting at the local theater during winter time. As she says "art is an integral part of her life".
Christos is a Greek national. He was attracted to the sea and sailing for a long time but decided to enter the yachting hospitality industry as a professional in the last 4 years.
He is extremely service oriented and always keen to offer. Main part of his duties is to offer assistance to the chef and the Captain, while keeping the yacht spotless.
We have trusted Multihull Yachting for the last 5 years both for holidays as well as for business visitors. They have always organised everything very well. The new addition, Daddy's Hobby was better than expected, the crew was very polite and the food amazing.The captain suggested some not so well-known areas, even to us that have sailed repeatedly, which were definitely worth visiting. Our friends, who visited Greece for the first time, they just fell in love with the place. We will certainly be back.

We sailed on DH from Santorini to Lavrion in July 2016. The yacht is superb, very well equipped and maintained perfectly. Harry planned the trip in the most comfortable way and even the 3 days that were really windy passed by without us fighting the seas at all. My only complain is about the chef who is responsible for the extra weight we put on. Thank you guys for the memorable vacation.

My friend was gracious enough to invite my wife and meon a Greek Island cruise last summer aboard Daddy's Hobby. We came in with high expectations and those expectations were not only met, but greatly exceeded! Below is my review:
The Boat: Daddy's Hobby is a large Catamaran that comfortably sleeps 8 (we were seven), not including the crew. First of all, the crew keeps this boat immaculately clean. The boat has multiple living/lounging spaces, so you can always find a place to hang out by yourself and read or take in the beautiful scenery. There is a nice sitting areas "indoors" and multiple sitting areas outside. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and the most efficient storage systems I've seen. Literally every little nook and cranny can be used for storage. They have paddle boards, kayaks, snorkeling gear, and other accessories to help you enjoy your various stops.
The Crew: The crew was amazing, A+ all around. The boat has a skipper, a first mate/hostess, and a chef.
Andreas was our skipper. He is a very cool, calm and collected skipper. A man of few words, he takes great pride in knowing the Mediterranean like the back of his hand. Once he got to know us, he was great in tailoring our itinerary to what we would like, rather than just going through a one-size-fits-all agenda. He always knew the best (and secluded) swimming areas, the most scenic beaches, and the best times to travel. He is a top notch skipper. One of my favorite things to do on this trip was to go up to the flying bridge while in transit with a nice glass of whiskey and chat with Andreas about our route, boating, the islands, or life in general. Like I said, he is a top notch skipper.
Lina is the boat's first mate/hostess. She maintains order on the boat and makes sure everyone is having a great time. She speaks many different languages, and makes sure everyone knows the safety protocols and rules of the boat. She also has a knack for knowing when you need your next cocktail or when it's time for a snack. She makes sure the boat is always in the best condition, yet you will never notice her doing it. She also has great recommendations for when the boat docks at a new island.
The chef on the boat was fantastic. He was trained in London, I believe, working in fine dining restaurants. Each meal was a fantastic one, with various themes. Each time we would go to a port that had a market, he would get fresh ingredients and we would eat amazing Greek foods. All-in-all, I think we had one or two meals off the boat because his food was just that good. And do not ever worry about there being not enough food!
Overall the crew as an A+ and made the vacation feel like we were amongst friends. I can't stress the importance of this enough.
Itinerary: We did a seven day cruise along the Cyclades Islands. Our highlights included Syros (unique amongst the Cyclades with its beautiful marble streets), Kythnos (with its vibrant nightlife), Milos (its most breathtaking views), and Kea (with it's great swimming and where we had an amazing Greek seafood dinner at one of Andreas's good friend's restaurant). My suggestion is to listen to the skipper, as he knows what you want to see and knows where to take you. Trust in him and you will have a blast, especially if the sea is not agreeing with your plans.
Overall, if you are thinking about doing this trip do it! It was a trip of a lifetime, and a lot of it had to do with Daddy's Hobby and its crew. They are very professional, yet make you feel like you are at home.
