Daily Gulet Charters
Yacht charters in Turkey comprise of a variety of vessels; however, one of the most beautiful yachts, growing in popularity in recent years has been the classic Turkish gulets. Elegant wooden boats that sail along the shores of the Mediterranean, Aegean and Adriatic seas – known mainly in type as motorsailers, but referred to as gulets
A good majority of gulet charters in Turkey are a week long. Guests embark on a Saturday and return on a Saturday. The embarkation and disembarkation varies. A gulet charter can begin its itinerary from, say Bodrum, and complete the route in Fethiye, Gocek, Antalya or one of the Greek Islands. However embarking and disembarking in Bodrum is quite common.
Although gulet tourism is growing rapidly with interest in the global holiday marketplace, there are still those who are unaware of its existence. As such, when it is heard of, it becomes quite interesting and acknowledged as a superb alternative to staying in hotels. Gulet charters are not inexpensive, but can be rather affordable; particularly when the daily rental cost is split between the guests on board. On the other hand, a weeks’ trip at sea aboard a traditional gulet is somewhat of a new concept for some, as travelers have been used to yacht charters in motoryachts or bareboats; therefore a trial gulet cruise can be experienced.
There are some gulets that do offer daily gulet cruises from Marmaris or the town of Bozburun, for example. Daily gulet rentals are easily acquired during the months of May, June, September and October; and occasionally in July and August.
Guests go aboard the gulet at around 9:30am – 10:00am. The itinerary comprises of anchor points of nearby islands and bays in the Marmaris region, that can go all the way to the town of Bozburun or Turgut village. The only meal served on board is lunch which is usually included in the price of the cruise, and drinks are extra. The classification of gulets that offer, when available, daily gulet charters are luxury gulets and economical gulets. They are comfortable and provide professionals services by the crew on board.
For travellers who are interested in just trying out a gulet charter, this is a lovely way to get to know the cruise in a similar manner. Guests who have taken this route, have followed through with a week long gulet charter with their family or their friends and ended their vacation with plenty of precious memories.
