What is flotilla yacht charter?

A little bit of history to begin with. The name originates from the Spanish language, with the word flota meaning simply a fleet of ships. That doesn't come as a surprise, flotilla does sound Spanish. And it accurately describes what flotilla is, it's a group of yachts that are chartered and they sail and explore the sailing area together. There is also one yacht and crew that is in charge, and they lead the other yacht along the sailing route.

While the name might come from Spain, the first flotilla ever actually sailed in Greece, back in the 1970s. The concept of flotilla yacht charter is still relevant today, although it did go through some changes since its beginning. Most importantly, it used to be a bit more rigid, all the yachts in flotilla had to strictly follow the route and schedule, but now flotilla offers a lot more flexibility.
