In the Beginning
In the beginning there was a young woman, in her very early twenties, passionately linked to the sea and sea life. For someone of her talents, living and growing up on the seashore, it seemed a short journey and the obvious next step, to begin creating opportunities for others to experience it too, through the best means possible – the yachting. Read more about Sandra, the founder, here. Throughout the past decades, Armstrong Global has expanded from being a small yacht rental operator to an expert in its field, offering practical hands-on life in the magnificent yachting world of the Mediterranean and beyond. The fleet has grown exponentially and destinations have been extended to include every corner of the Mediterranean sea, and the majority of popular world-wide destinations including blue-water expeditions such as Antarctica & Patagonia, Iceland & Greenland, and Alaska. Armstrong Global is known for being able to accommodate any inquiry which you as a retail or institutional party may have – from proper adventure programs, kids excursions and “learn to sail” projects, to TV documentaries support and filming, companies team building events and incentive travels.
Armstrong Global was born out of the passion for the ocean, out of a desire to show the world the beauties of our Mediterranean Sea. It grew and stretched to the four corners i.e. to the oceans and the seas of the globe. It is our aim to introduce those willing to experience this sailing world for themselves – be it the absolute beginner with no hints whatsoever of what a yachting vacation entails, be it well traveled individuals who are accustomed to their preferences, their sailing programs and formulas, or be it particularly technical and performance-oriented groups aiming for new challenges to various degrees of difficulties and obstacles to break through in their yachting resumes. You will feel welcomed home to any place we take you to as you will encounter a degree of hospitality you never thought possible. There are specific programs and solutions that fit each of these very different types of guests, whose expectations and aims differ to a very high extent. Our aim is to allow YOU to experience a life different than that you have known. To step away from the westernised existence that typically confines and defines you, when you don’t even realize it. When you break free of your four walls and your comfort zones, travelling should expand your thinking and open your eyes to other realities, that already coexist with your own. The ‘water’ lifestyle helps you detach from your day-to-day routine, and projects you into the most pristine settings of nature. Nature that remains majestic in its identity and will allure you with its wonders. It is our sailing DNA and the expertise in the field that makes our people an invaluable resource when it comes to consulting and opinion-leading. It is what guides us in creating the most magical vacation experience for you!
At the heart of our business, with both our guests and our suppliers, is the desire to introduce the beginner to the ocean life. This is entirely based in our first-hand personal experience in the field, sailing around for decades and living the ocean life. Integrity and impartiality represent who we are at the core, and this is why most of our business is generated by repeat customers and customer referrals. We value greatly our professional outlook in dealings with all parties. Through two decades, this has distinguished Armstrong Global, from the myriad of other operators in yacht charter field. We hope you will try it for yourself and experience our customer service.
Armstrong Global has been taking care of world travellers and sailors in a personal, human-related and hands-on approach through two decades. It is essential to us to provide a person you can actually speak to and we are always up for a chat or to guide you to all the information and literature you might need to answer any query you have. When creating memories, we believe a human touch is essential rather than do-it-yourself automated systems. We can honestly and proudly say we have an unparalleled expertise in Greek isles sailing and in yachting vacations in the Mediterranean. We are honored to be able to serve our clients who seek an experience not just to be “in” a place, but to be part “of” a special place, and a special life. We understand that our guests are not keen on impersonalized high tech platforms that deplete an experience of any human relationship and touch. Most of our guests want our insider’s expertise to make their next vacation extraordinary.
In this overwhelmingly automated era where it seems anything and everything is available online, would you want to spend your valuable time and funds with someone who has never actually put their foot on a boat, and especially not in these waters? This is our home, and our purpose is to provide our clients with an outstanding, unforgettable experience of a lifetime.
