Chartering a Gulet and The Crew

Choosing a gulet that fits your criteria is important. This could be based on price, size, amenities, toys, food, and quality of accommodation (including cleanliness). But equally or more important is the crew – who that completes a holiday. Everything could be great about a gulet.  However, if the crew is not up to par – doesn’t offer that warmth, knowledge, and professionalism, then do you just make the best of your gulet charter holiday? It should not be as such.

Some gulet owners feel that if they offer a great boat and good food, then their boat is of great value. But the excitement of the boat only lasts for a day or two. After that, it’s the crew becomes one of the most important parts of chartering a gulet.

Communication is paramount. Particularly in the tourism industry. If English is limited, the lack of communication starts to diminish the potential relationship between the guests and the yacht crew.  This is a primary cause for misunderstanding and disappointment between guest and crew.


It’s not easy to put together the right crew. The members can change from one season to the next – or even during mid-season. Boat owners need to realize that a good crew, those who practice enthusiastic and knowledgeable service, prepare a decent variety of delicious dishes, and most importantly – can communicate effectively with the guests on board is what actually makes their boat valuable.

Guests need to realize that this is not always possible on board all gulets – particularly on economic/standard class boats. A good crew can most times mean higher costs which are reflected in the overall charter rate.

All in all, it’s all about the crew, isn’t it?  If the crew is important to you, then the best thing to do is ask for a crew profile of the boat or boats you are interested in – and then make your decision to charter.
