What is a Boutique Boat Charter?
In the region of Turkey there are a large number of elegantly handcrafted gulets that come in a variety of designs, sizes and styles. Among the many gulets (estimated at over 500 in Turkey), there are gulets where you will find high quality finishing, exquisite interior design and luxury comfort, and hold a capacity of 4 cabins within its 19 to 26 meter length. Based on these fine features we generally refer to them as Boutique boat charters in Turkey. A few examples of boutique gulets are shown below. The purpose of crewed boutique boat rentals is that it offers a crew and a smaller more cozy size, giving the feeling of a more private holiday for small groups such as couples only cruises or one, maybe two families at most. They are charming and quite traditional in Turkish style decor.
Let’s take the gulet Sofia for instance. She is a lovely little ‘true’ gulet that was first commercially presented to gulet tourism in 2012. Prior to this opportunity, Sofia was not available for charter and only for private use by her owner. Currently she is owned by a well respected family in Marmaris.
When she was constructed, she was made according to the personal taste of the owner. Sofia offers 3 cabins. A very spacious master cabin with plenty of cabinet space and an en-suite. The other 2 double cabins also have their own en-suites and all cabins come fitted with A/C.
Another lovely boutique boat for hire is this 21 meter Turkish gulet. She too has 3 lovely cabins (1 master, 1 VIP double and 1 double) with a tastefully designed interior served by an experienced crew of 3. Serenity 70 gulet is a very popular single family or couples only yacht charter and available in the region of Turkey’s southern coast as well as the Dodecanese islands of Greece.
So if you are looking for an authentic yacht charter holiday in the Aegean sea; consider a boutique gulet and enjoy all the many coastal and island treasures there is available for your next vacation.
