Ideal for a Group up to 16 persons - all cabins with air-condition
The M/S BALINA,
built 2005, refit 2012, Turkish flagged Ketch Gulet, is one of the finest boats between Bodrum and Fethiye. Not
only that this ship has been created by ship builders using traditional methods, but sea-farers and artists have
also added their ideas. You can see their inspiration in the basic design and in many fine-crafted details.
Once on board the M/S BALINA you will find yourself in an atmosphere of nostalgia which evokes the golden age of
world-class sailing ships.
You sail along the "coast
You will experience the sun of the Aegean, the sea breezes and the proverbial hospitality of the people. The coast
of Turkey, with its deep inlets, wide gulfs and sheltered bays, and the nearby Greek islands, is a unique holiday
region. The pleasant climate, crystal-clear water and the delightful, ever-changing scenery of the Eastern Mediterranean
are waiting to welcome you. The gullet M/S BALINA will visit magical harbours and coves and you will get to know
the most popular bathing resorts and harbour cities. If you want, you can wander through famous archeological sites
or use snorkeling equipment to discover sunken harbour moles.
is considered to be among the finest in the world. On board the M/S BALINA you will find the finest Turkish dishes,
prepared using the freshest vegetables, fish and meats. Our cook is an expert in his field. He will pamper you
with three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and a three-course dinner in the evening. If you have any special dietary
requirements (if there are certain foods you dislike or mustn't eat), simply let him know. He will be able to prepare
dishes to suit your exact taste.
Your meals on board: Fullboard (3 meals + teatime) price € 38,-
Soft Drinks and alcoholic drinks are extra, we can buy them at supermarket prices and you just pay us the bill
plus a service-extra for the crew of only 10%: We think that's a fair offer and all previous guests did appreciate
that very much.
are mainy served on deck under the awning which protects you from the sun. In cooler months, our guests dine in
the deck salon.
Let's be honest about air-condition
There is nearly none of the gullet charter-companies who tells you the truth about the use of air-conditition on
Gulets. Yes, M/S BALINA has AC and you switch it on indivually. But on a boat the AC can only run when the generator
is on, or in a harbor when connectet to 220 Volt. Mainly you are in anchorbays, often next to a neighbor, who doesn't
like the noise of your generator and you wouldn't like it either during the night for example.
So most of the gullets (like we), have come to a gentlemens agreement not to disturb eachother - AC can be used
on the most of the boats 2-3 hours in the morning or at night from 20 to 24 hours to cool down your cabin.
And of course like all our boats, the
M/S BALINA meets international safety regulations including life jackets, fire extinguishers and alarms.
