Few holidays are more aspirational and attuned to the needs of the guest than a gulet charter. Our holidays afloat offer guests a truly discerning experience with unparalleled adventures on the crest of a wave and first-class levels of on-board comfort. All charters are offered for exclusive sole use to ensure maximum enjoyment.
Why gulet cruising?
Our holidays afloat are an experience like no other and they are perfectly suited for friends travelling together, multi-generational family holidays, honeymoons and for those looking to celebrate the momentous. A gulet charter offers a luxury and authentic escape at sea, mahogany decks and slow sophisticated cruising is the order of the day. Charters are a week in duration, allowing guests to slip into the rhythm of Mediterranean cruising. We have carefully chosen our vessels to ensure unprecedented onboard comfort. Your home for the week buys you the benefit of a crew and captain who know the regions most treasured secrets and a chef who creates a culinary extravaganza at every meal time. The atmosphere while aboard is relaxed and informal but professional at all times, the captain is at the helm and the crew cater to your needs. Furthermore the first hand knowledge of the captain and crew is enhanced more by a land-based support network team, and our Discerning destination experts that are eager to maximise fleixible cruising itineraries and preferences (culinary, activities, adventure) to ensure you gain the most from your holiday afloat. In addition to setting your own pace and rhythm for the cruise, this mode of holiday experience ensures guests have maximum privacy. Of course being on a gulet provides a physical separation from the land but you are also free to choose your anchorages. The gulet itself also has a huge choice of spaces to socialise and rejuvenate comfortably both inside and out.

Mein Schatz is one of the most desirable guelts that we feature she is sleek and chic providing unprecedented space and comfort together with exemplary levels of onboard service. Inside, Mein Schatz boasts glossy wooden interiors and a large saloon space. Sleeping quarters are wonderfully spacious, she has 5 en-suite cabins, two master doubles, two further doubles and a twin perfect for friends or children sharing. The cabins are air conditioned and also have shower and W/C facilities. A gulet cruise is our favourite ways to discover the magnificence of the Turquoise coast. It provides a reverse angle on this stunning and dramatic coastline, glancing back to shore you can truly appreciate the vista of thick pine forest dripping down to meet inky blue sea. What’s more, you can luxuriate in pristine inlets and discover remote bays that are only available to those in the know. For the more active, there is a selection of exhilarating water sports as well as sea-kayaks paddle boards and so on. Days are spent meandering effortlessly from cove to bay with a balance of life spent at sea and mooring in small harbours and ports where there is an opportunity to explore local villages, markets and historical sites on route.
Our flexible itineraries provide guests with a balance between life at sea and in port. One of the luxuries of gulet charter is that you are not tied to a specific location. You are perfectly free to spend more time in remote anchorages, uninhabited islands and sleepy coves. As long as the start point of embarkation and disembarkation corresponds with where the boat needs to be positioned for the next charter the boat is yours to enjoy.
