Greece to Florida using a speedboat

Are you looking to travel to Greece from Florida and you want to use a speedboat to do that?

And you want to find out the distance between Florida and Greece by sea?

The distance it would take to get from Florida to Greece by speedboat will depend on how many miles the boat travels per hour.

So if your speed boat travels at 57.5 miles per hour (MPH) from Florida, it will take approximately 5 days (120hours) to get to Greece.

Generally, speed boats are known to be faster than regular boats, can travel at speeds of 100 MPH and 344.86 MPH depending on the engine.

However, it can take less than or more than 5 days to get to Greece from Florida as a lot of factors can are supposed to be considered like fuel, weather conditions, and a whole lot of other things.

In this guide, you will learn how long it takes to get from Greece to Florida using a speedboat, the distance between Florida and Greece, how to convert MPH to boat knot, and more.


How long does it take to get to Greece from Florida using a speedboat?

To know the distance between Florida and Greece if you are traveling with a speedboat, you will need to do a little bit of calculation. Yes, maths.

First of all, you will need to know the knot of your speedboat, that is the speed of your boat.

Nowadays, knots is referred to as miles per hour (MPH).

And not all boats come with speed specifications, and to measure your boat speed you need to measure it per hour using a watch, on a lake in good weather.

To calculate the time it will take you to get from Greece to Florida, you do this:

Distance between Florida and Greece = 10651 KM
Speed of boat per hour = let's assume it's 50MPH

Now, go on and divide 10,651 by 50, it will give you 213.02  that is approximately 9 days.

So a speedboat boat that travels at 50 knots or MPH from Florida, will get to Greece in about 213.02 hours or 9 days but only if the following happens:

  • Good weather
  • No stopping for fuel
  • No engine failure
  • Consistent speed
  • Sailing in a straight line

This means that the time to get there may be higher due to the above factors.

So that is how long it takes to travel by speedboat to Greece from Florida and how to calculate it.


What is the distance between Florida and Greece?

The distance between Florida and Greece is 10651 kilometers.

The distance can be higher or a little bit lower depending on your mode of transportation.

Nevertheless, this number is only doable if you are traveling in a straight line, with no curves, whatsoever.


How to convert MPH to boat knot

Knot is used to measure boat speed. One knot equals 1.15078 miles per hour or roughly 1.15.

To convert MPH (mile per hour) to knot you will be doing simple math.

1 knot equals 1.15078 miles per hour

For example, to convert 9.20624mph to knots, you multiply you have to divide it by 1.15078, and the final answer should be 8knots.


Conclusion

On the map, Florida is located towards the east side of Greece, so the distance between them should be naturally far.

To get to Greece from Florida by sea using a speedboat, one can only hope that the weather would be favorable and the boat engine doesn't fail along the way.

However, if all things are equal, the time it should take one to get to Greece from Florida should be 9 days.
