Vliho Yacht Club

The Vliho Yacht Club, who look after Dreamcatcher, opened its doors in 2003 attracting sailors, an international community of local residents and holiday-makers to relax in a real home-from-home atmosphere and enjoy the beautiful Vliho bay all year round.

At the heart of it all is the bar and restaurant, which serves a mouthwatering Mediterranean menu and irresistible daily specials created from local seasonal ingredients. The round open-air bar overlooking Vliho Bay is a great place to meet, share stories, swop info, kick back and watch the world go by.  They also have washing and drying facilities, as well as hot showers and free WiFi.

Time to explore

Enjoy stunning locations on the islands of Lefkas, Meganisi, Kalamos, Kastos, Ithaca, Kefalonia and Zakinthos in sheltered, warm, clear, blue waters.

Alternatively, you can travel north through the Lefkas Canal and explore the islands of Antipaxos, Paxos and Corfu, plus a wealth of locations on the mainland. With so many beautiful and unspoilt safe anchorages, as well as wonderful harbour villages to visit, you are truly spoilt for choice.

Everywhere you will enjoy the warm hospitality of the local Greek people who will genuinely enjoy your presence.

 

Dreamcatcher is very well built and maintained, and you feel confident that she'll look after you in any weather. Richard and Sue have equipped her extremely well, and there's nothing that you'll need to bring. There is ample cool box space for keeping your water and beer chilled, the air conditioning is fantastic, and having a (quiet) generator means that you can use it even when you don't have shore power or are at anchor. When the temperatures are up in the mid - high 30's, this is a real bonus. The boat sails very well and the engine gives you all the power you need to make progress at over 6 knots. The water capacity is great and means that a family of 4 can cruise for 3-4 days with plenty of water for washing, showers etc. The beds are very comfortable. The dinghy and electric outboard were a great addition - I'd never used an electric outboard before and it was perfect for the job - loved it!! Finally, having 80m of anchor chain means that you can safely anchor almost anywhere - great! We tended to be a little more adventurous than some, and spent most nights at anchor. Dreamcatcher is very well equipped to allow a family of up to four, or two couples to safely explore off the beaten track in better than average comfort. A really good boat and a great holiday! Thank you.
