ZenBoat 143


First there was the Love Boat... now there's the ZenBoat!

Reading time: 1 minute

Unearth your inner zen with ZenBoat, a brand-new Greek vintage yacht experience with a holistic approach launching this September.

Sail the magical Greek islands on a classic gulet, with daily light exercise plus delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Traditional gulets,  originally built as fishing boats, have been luxuriously re-fitted for comfort and relaxation, each with an onboard health coach and its own chef.

Itineraries take in spectacular islands, from the mystical Ionian islands to the magical Peloponnese coastline, and the delightful and little-known Saronic Islands en route to Athens.

During the day, the on-board health coach will organise a light physical programme with activities such as yoga, pilates, aqua gym and calisthenics to keep you on your toes and feeling fine. Evenings will see the gulet moored at a different location every night, with guests strolling to local tavernas, giving them the opportunity to experience authentic local Greek cuisine.

ZenBoat is the vision of Swiss chef, Louis Papadopoulos, and his wife, Lisa, a trained nutritional therapist, who together run The Maya Boutique Hotel, a small, sustainable self-built hotel in Nax, Switzerland, which provide retreats specialising in nutrition and fasting.

“Life isn't about the destination – it's about the journey,” says Louise. “ZenBoat is about both!”
