PRİVATE YACHT - GULET CHARTER AND CABİN CHARTER FAQ
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
Remember that soft bags are easier to store in your cabin than hard suitcases. You might also want to bring a light day pack for optional excursions ashore. Basic toiletries, swimming suits (it is a good idea to bring at least two since you spend most of the day in them),t-shirts, shorts (and some warmer clothes as well, especially for the cold spring and autumn nights); insect repellent, plenty of efficient sun lotion (if you have light skin, you should get SPF 25 or higher), good sunglasses, a hat and some aloe vera gel or sun burn medications are essential. Antihistamine or cold/flu medicine, aspirin or equivalent, tweezers, nail clippers, a needle would also be useful. And you should always keep in mind that normal street shoes are definitely not acceptable on board, you will find it very relaxing to walk barefoot! Still, soft-soled shoes for getting around only on deck are adequate.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF THE YEAR TO GO ON CRUISE?
June and September are usually hot enough to get a nice tan without the acrid summer sun. For those who wish to swim at any time of day and night and who are sun worshippers, we suggest July and August. May and October feature the clear beauty of nature and this is perhaps the best time since the coves and beaches are not crowded. It rains from time to time during these months, but the rain is confined to a few hours maximum.
CAN WE BRİNG CHİLDREN ON A YACHTING HOLİDAY?
You can Take children on board for private yacht charter but it is not permitted to take a child under 2 years old for cabin charter.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN STANDARD, HIGH AND DE LUXE CLASSES?
In standard class, gulets feature the same qualifications as all others but within budgetary standards. Each cabin has its own WC and shower.
High class gulets have bigger and more comfortable cabins and decks and each cabin has air conditioning, WC and shower.
De luxe class yachtes have luxurious, air-conditioned and spacious cabins. The design and the decoration of these gulets are fascinating and they have top class equipment.
SHOULD I TIP THE CREW?
Though it is discretionary, it is customary to do so in Turkey at the end of the cruise. The amount depends on your discretion but %5 of the base charter fee is usually the norm. The tip is normally given to the captain who divides it equally among the crew.
IS SMOKING ALLOWED ON BOARD?
Smoking is not allowed inside the yacht due to the safety regulations but is allowed on deck, on condition that you don’t disturb other guests.
CAN I BRING MY PET ALONG?
Pets are not allowed on yachts for several reasons: First of all, the high cleanliness standards should always be maintained and there is a potential of allergens from animals abiding on board. Plus a yacht trip would not be comfortable for pets since they are not accustomed to the conditions of a boat; they might become disoriented because of the sea mouvements.
CAN I BRING MY LAP TOP AND WHAT ABOUT CHARGING MY MOBILE?
There is not the necessary 220 volts equipment on every boat to charge electronics, however we can arrange a boat suitable for your needs if you can inform us ahead.
