Transfer of Business
We say hello!
SKORPIOS CHARTER, founded in 1986 as a German-Greek family business by Herbert Lerchl and Joanna Papalexopoulou, is one of the pioneers of yacht charter in the Ionian Sea. Now the time has come for the two owners to step back and hand over the business to a new ownership. From January 2024, the company will have new professional successors. A also German-Greek business partnership that wants to continue the successful course of the company and bring a breath of fresh air to the sails of SKORPIOS CHARTER.
The new company owners, Vassilis Tsinteris and Ulrich Kilp, both technically experienced, long-standing sailors will manage the fortunes of SKORPIOS CHARTER in the future.
Vassilis Tsinteris, already known since many years to our regular customers as a reliable base manager, was born in Greece and speaks fluent German and English thanks to his university time in Germany. Ulrich Klip, a certified appraiser expert and passionate sailor in the Ionian Sea for decades, has been involved in the company already for more than 15 years with his yachts.
Both are looking forward to ensuring that the yachts are in perfect condition from 2024 and that you can enjoy futhermore a save and unforgettable sailing holiday with SKORPIOS CHARTER.

Dear Sailing Friends,
We, Herbert Lerchl and Joanna Papalexopoulou, the founders of SKORPIOS CHARTER, recently retired and have sold the company.
We would like to thank you for the trust you placed in us over the years. Building up and running this company was a fulfilling challenge that we enjoyed immensely. It has been a great pleasure to know that we have been able to help many people enjoy a great sailing holiday and exciting new experiences.
We will miss our wonderful team, many of whom have been with the company for so many years and became friends. Without their help, it would not have been possible to run the firm and we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to them for their support and commitment during all those years.
We wish the new owners all the very best for the future of the company.
See you all again in Nydri.
Thank you again everyone. It was fun!
Always fair winds,
Herbert & Joanna
4-week cruise around the Peloponnese
Part 3, Eastern Peloponnese – The Isthmus of Corinth – Back to Nydri
Hydra, overrun by tourists did not appeal to us and because of the acute lack of berths and the overabundance of tourists, we did without. Porto Heli we left out because of the always large crowd.
