many ways a gullet is like a full service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly."

When chartering a gullet in
Turkey, you might consider going to Greece for visiting some of the beautiful islands like Symi, Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos
So let us explain a few points

2) Passenger limit 12 pax

What to bring
Travel light - is our best advice to you, swimsuits and T-shirts is all you need on board during daytime. In the
evenings people dress casually, but bring sweaters and long trousers if you are coming in the cooler months. It's
a good idea to bring a pair of soft shoes or sandals just to use on the boat.
On board we provide hand towels only so please bring your own bath and beach towels.
All this should be packed into a soft bag, not a suitcase, which can be folded and stowed away to give more room
in your cabin.
The Mediterranean sun is very bright and on a moving boat hotter than you think, be sure to pack sunglasses, a
good suntan lotion and a hat. If mosquitoes find you tasty then bring mosquito repellent and a camera is an absolute
and please send some of your pictures to us so we can place them on our pages

The Captain knows each harbour
and every cove. The cruise will follow a fixed route which will be discussed with the new guests on board or before
in mail exchange.
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. You can snorkel to your heart's content, windsurfing or kayaking! The
M/S M/S MIRIEM SOPHIE even carries a Jokerboat with a 50 HP Outborder, so you may try Waterski or Ringo-rides,
(there is an extra charge of about 10 Euro/10 minutes).
In the months which are not so warm, walks to ancient places or to nearby typical villages are the favourite pasttime.

Your meals on board:
You may choose between Full board (3 meals + tea time) price € 28,- p/person.
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.
Meals are mainly 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-condition on
Gullets. Yes, yes M/S M/S MIRIEM SOPHIE has AC and you think you can switch it on when you ike. It's not! On a
boat the AC can only run when the generator is on, or in a harbor when connected to 220 Volt. But mainly you are
in anchor bays, often next to a neighbor who doesn't like the noise of your generator and you wouldn't like it
either from your neighbour during the night for example.
So most of the gullets have come to a gentlemen's agreement not to disturb each other - AC can be used on the most
of the boats 2-3 hours in the morning or at night from 20 to 24 hours.
