What Can Determine the Route of a Private Gulet Cruise?

In gulet tourism, there are general terms laid out to offer the basic standards of a gulet cruise holiday. This basically begins with the fact that all gulet cruises are one week long. Exceptions could be based on the length of time a client wishes to hire the boat. This can range from a few days to a few weeks.  All gulet boats include the fuel in the charter prices. However this is limited to a maximum of 4 hours. Any time above four hours is always extra. Having said that, the itinerary of a private gulet charter is determined on where the gulet is based or where it is scheduled in a booking to begin or end the before and after tours of other clients.

In addition, a gulet when cruising on power not sails, averages about 9 knots per hour. How much distance that can be covered in one week has been established by this and other factors.  Pre-planned itineraries that are currently available show what is possible in route selections. Most itineraries are said to be flexible. But how so? It isn’t flexible on additional area coverage as that takes more time and fuel and cost by the boat owner.  The flexibility is, altering the current route and staying with that direction. Guests can stay longer in one place, skip a destination, or stay shorter in another place.

The logistics of what is possible and what is not is based on money, time, the performance capacity of the boat and of course, weather conditions. For instance, a gulet beginning a journey in Bodrum, with plans to go into the upper Dodecanese, then over to the Cyclades, will most likely not fulfill this route if it is in August.  The boat needs to be sturdy enough to handle the north winds called the Meltemi during that time of year – when the seas are rough.

In order to get a better understanding of itineraries, the best route to take is discussing your plans of what you want to do and where you want to go during your blue cruise holiday with your yacht charter company.
