Or perhaps you wish to learn how to moor stern to, Mediterranean style. Our crew will be delighted to show you, and you may be as `hands-on`as you wish knowing that you’ll still be well fed and watered

 The Ultimate Gulet Charter Holiday in Turkey

The magic of a personal, family or group private gulet charter is about enjoying time with people of your choice, indulging in personal service, full housekeeping, gourmet meals, absolute relaxation and a very flexible itinerary. Known for their world famous hospitality and expertise, your crew will take you  to exotic destinations in Turkey and Greece, prepare gourmet Mediterranean cuisine, pour drinks and take extremely good care of you.

Relax in the shade on the aft or forward deck of the gulet, sunbathe, read a book, swim, snorkel or chat with friends and family. Explore Turkish villages in Gökova , hike in pristine pine forests around Marmaris, and shop in the local Bodrum and Göcek fresh markets. Our captain will make sure you set off in the right direction – you may invite him to come with you if you wish more local knowledge.

 Choose Your Blue Cruising Destination in Turkey and Greece

 The choice is always yours as the itinerary on your gulet is always flexible. When you discover an anchorage that you particularly love, then you can spend extra time there. At night, if you're in the mood to groove, you might want to go ashore and enjoy local Turkish nightlife in Bodrum or Marmaris. Or, you may prefer to fall asleep to the sounds of the sea in a quiet secluded cove whilst others party away nearby. With a private gulet, it’s the beauty of having the choice.
