Why Blue Cruise Populer in Turkey
Do you want to experience an unforgettable gulet sailing holiday? Then decide for a Blue Cruise Turkey. Everything started in the 50’s, then the turkish author Cevat Sakir was writing about his journeys at the blue sea. These journeys he called “Blue Cruises”. He was talking about sun, blue water, impressive nature and ancient history. He used much poetry for and gave his stories a lively picture.
The most chosen sea vessel type for a Blue Cruise, is the gulet. The gulet is a typical turkish motorsailer made out of wood. Still today they are built. Important shipyards are located in Bodrum and in Bozburun. With the years the shape of the gulet was changed to have some more space under deck for cabins, salon and other luxury amenities.
The average duration of a blue cruise is a week. This week can be an amazing holiday experience for you, as nearly every day you set sails to new locations. You don’t spend one week in just one region.
Popular blue cruise itineraries are starting from Marmaris, Fethiye or Bodrum. Due to Turkeys close location to Greece, the itineraries can be combined with the Greek Islands. Rhodos, Kos or Symi are just some interesting islands to be mentioned. Just ask your DerinBlu Yachting agent for advise and together you can work out a personal itinerary.
While your gulet is sailing to a new location, you can relax onboard. Switch your MP3 Player on and take a sunbath on deck. Read the a nice book or play cards with your friends. As soon as the gulet arrives at the harbour you can go on land and discover a colourful coast town, a picturesque fisher village or the interior. Finish your day with a glass of good wine in one of the little restaurants located at the harbour promenade.
