Cabin Charter - general information
tours which are offered here take place on Standard-Yachts, the traditional Bodrum-built GULET. All yachts are
between 19 - 25 meters length, these
vessels accommodate between 12 and 16 guests in 6 to 8 cabins. The cabins have en-suite WC & handheld showers.
(Hot & cold). There is a music set, VHF Radiotelephone and a dinghy on each yacht, but in general no air condition.
Crew consists of a captain, cook and a deckshand.
An exact yacht’s name can not be available
until 1 or 2 days before departure, as numbers of bookings come in often late. This works well over the years like
a cooperative and we advice you to give us your mobile phone that we stay in contact to give you captain's number
and boat name.
The crew aboard our Gulets and yachts often do not have a foreign language mastered, but they almost always know
a few ’every-day’ phrases and are able to understand almost all requests.
