Welcome to Yacht Fresh - Your Provisioning & Catering Specialist in Lefkas

With a home on the island of Lefkas, in the heart of the Ionian sea and with access to great tasting local produce and knowledge of local supermarkets and whole sellers, our goal is to offer you a pre provision service for your sailing holiday.

Whether you are a yacht owner, you are chartering a boat, or part of a flotilla holiday to enable you to have as much time as possible sailing and enjoy the beautiful Island of Lefkas and the surrounding cruising area rather than spending valuable time shopping for groceries and provisions

About Us

Hello my name is Hazel and I live on the wonderful island of Lefkas with my partner Paul and our small dog Ellie. We spent many years trying to find the perfect place to retire and we feel so blessed to have settled here in Lefkas.

For the past 12 years Paul and I have had the pleasure of chartering yachts and sailing around the many beautiful and breath taking Greek islands.  In the past the size of the sailing parties on our charted yachts varied from 4 to 10 people and it would always be my role, and pleasure, to cook during the holiday. I know from experience how difficult a role this can be particularly trying to meet every ones individual needs, and with the smallest of cooking space in a galley the simplest of tasks can seem to turn into a challenge.

Although Paul and I retired to Lefkas we still wanted to remain active and felt that we could use our experiences of sailing to look at what could make a sailing holiday experience easier.

How could we enable you to have more time experiencing sailing rather than spend time provisioning your yacht? With this in mind we felt that providing a pre provision and catering service for sailing groups would enhance your sailing holiday experience.

Our Service

For yacht owners, bareboat charterers the benefits of pre provisioning and ordering meals allows for a quick departure from port on the day of arrival with no time wasted on shopping. All provisions are delivered on the day of your arrival ensuring there is a guarantee of fresh quality produce including local bread and fruit.

Our simple but hearty meals use local produce and we provide a selection of vegetarian options, these meals are frozen and delivered to your yacht on the day of arrival and placed in your fridge or cool box. We have a full comprehensive list of alcoholic drinks available to order including wines, spirits and local beer.

We are aware that Flotilla holidays work differently to other sailing holidays and most flotillas will spend evenings in ports to visit Taverna’s recommended by the flotilla leaders. However its always handy to pre order food that is quick to make with little preparation such as breakfast foods, bread, sandwich fillings, snacks, crisps and maybe the (odd) case or two of beer, wines etc.

As a supporter of reducing our carbon footprint and reducing the impact of landfill on these beautiful islands we have put together packs which are designed to provide the equipment you will need for your holiday without buying more than you need and ending your holiday with unused produce.

Most people charting yachts arrive here in Lefkas on a Sunday, for Greeks Sunday is a day of rest and other than the few `corner shops’ the large supermarkets will be closed meaning you may find you need to stay in port an extra day just to provision your boat. For us it doesn’t matter how small or large your order is, but we advise you to take advantage of our online shop prior to your holiday commencing, to arrive at your yacht with it equipped from the moment you step on board with full provisions for your holiday, no lugging packs of water, beers, wines, sourcing fresh produce and the arduous task of shopping for the week ahead, it will all be ready for you in the galley, so you are able to sit back relax and allow yourself a minute to congratulate yourself on a job well done!

Our Products

The provisions delivered to your yacht will be sourced from local suppliers, growers here on the island of Lefkas. The island’s climate allows for some of the best tasting meat, fruit and vegetables I personally have ever tasted as well as a excellent supply of local honey.

The idea to pre provision is not to stop people using the wonderful Taverna’s and local shops you may find on your sail. The islands provide some of the finest quality restaurants and Taverna’s, the idea is to ensure you have all the items you will need; our list is fairly comprehensive and hopefully covers all your requirements however if you find we have not mentioned a product that you would like to purchase please email us and we will endeavour to source it for you prior to your arrival.

However you choose to pre provision your boat is entirely left to you, by using our shopping list we can remove the hassle and you can start your adventure relaxed and ready to sail. Your pre ordered shopping can be paid for well in advance of your holiday through our paypal account and should you wish to visit our site again you can continue to add to your shopping list as required.
