Morgkan, a comfortable historical caique, ideal for families

Morgkan is an elegant and comfortable traditional Greek sailboat type “trechantiris”(caique). Its large width allows to create beautiful spaces. The sailboat can board up to 8 people plus the skipper. Including 2 large double cabins and a 4 single bed cabin, Morgkan is perfectly suited for a family or a group of friends.

Specially restored for the cruise in 2012, Morgkan has a spacious lounge and kitchen. The captain’s quarters are isolated from the rest of the boat to ensure the tranquility of the passengers.

Morgkan also has a large outdoor lounge and a fantastic sun deck ideal for naps or lazy moments after swimming or during navigation.

Passionate about the sea since his childhood, embark on board Morgkan with Bertrand your professional skipper. Graduated from the merchant marine, Bertrand will welcome you aboard his sailboat the time of your cruise. After returning from an Atlantic crossing, Bertrand decided to anchor in the Aegean Sea, which he considers the most beautiful sailing zone in the world.

It comes to him the idea to restore a trechantiri, a traditional Greek boat more commonly called caique, to make it a cruising sailboat.

Bertrand will make you discover the hidden jewels of the small Cyclades that he knows on his fingertips.

Bertrand is not only an excellent sailor and chef, he is also an extremely generous man who shares his history, his culture and his passions. If you wish, Bertrand will be happy to make you participate in the maneuvers of his sailboat. He knows how to be discreet so that you spend moments with your loved ones.
