Life on Board

Apart from Turkish gulet cruise, what is chartered sailing all about? When we describe the best sailing experience, it always comes with those three main steps; best food, best company surrounded by nature and best sailing then you are good to go.

Sailing holiday has no age restriction. It is all up to your choice. Crowds can be in all age groups. Can be an energetic, adventurous get together or just relaxing and enjoying the timeless moment in nature as desired.

During your trip may leave everything to the skipper and crew or choose to join in the running of the boat. You may feel free to do your own shopping for meals if you want to. The crew will still cook for you. Unless you wish to prepare a signature dish for your own party.

Some days you may decide to have some reading time for yourself in the shade while sipping a drink or prefer to get some tan on deck. Planning to have an active day, you get everything you ask for.

Fishing, windsurfing, water skiing, or when the yacht is at anchor in a beautiful cove, snorkeling, swimming in the natural aquarium and hiking in the wood and maybe visiting underwater ruins. While docked you may wish to spend some time touring a nearby ancient city or have a special evening in town or in a close by local destinations. All is just up to your taste.

Staff on board

You are only responsibility is making a chose the dream voyage you desire for yourself and for your party.

Packing up for sailing

  • Your swimsuit and a pair of sports shoes are good enough. If you think you might be interested in hiking add also a pair of them.
  • Do not forget to bring your cameras. You will have wonderful memories to recall but no harm in taking some photos for your IG profile.

You will see thousands of colors merged in perfectly.  A pleasurable one just between two seas of Mediterranean and Aegean. It is a paradise where greens, oranges, blues, turquoises, scarlets, bougainvillea, are ready to salute you.

  • A few pairs of shorts and T-shirts would be needed. At night you might feel a bit chilly sometimes therefore do have a sweater or hoodie with you. Rubber slippers is the best option for walking on our boats.
  • Sun cream and sunglasses are highly recommended for sure.
  • In general, almost all yachts carry some equipment, but if you enjoy diving or staying in the water for a longer hour, and use your own, then do bring your masks, fins and snorkel with you. However, you can buy them in local stores for very inexpensive prices as well.
  • You would not want to be without books, anyway. You can also add them to your list.
  • If there is any particular music you wish to play do bring it as well.
  • We do also carry sets of boardgames, backgammon, chess, etc. But feel free to bring yours.

It is so relieving that you do not have to worry about heels or formal details of your Michelin star dining on board. Sailing gives you real freedom.  Your chef is ready to serve up award winning dishes or inspiring local tastes. No stress of booking tables in your favorite restaurant or dealing with tedious details. You have only the best view table of each night.
