many ways a gulet is like a full service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly."
Having spent a week on Richmond 9 with the following crew: Mahmut
Turan (Seaman), Nuri Ardic (Captain), Okan Yalcin (Chef) from 10th - 17th September, 2011 we wish to confirm
that all three members went out of their way to make our holiday one of the most memorable. The food was excellent,
and all in all nothing was too much trouble. The captains timing and sailing skills were of a very high standard,
and all three worked extremely well as a team!
Language presented no problem at all, and their interaction with us went far beyond the normal 'call' of duty.
Their hospitality made us feel like we were part of their 'family'. We have no hesitation in recommending them
to any company who would require their skills.
We will surely miss them when we return to South Africa, and we wish all three of them, the best for the future.

is considered to be among the finest in the world. On board the M/S RICHMOND 9 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. Meals are mailny served on deck under the awning which protects you
from the sun. In cooler months, our guests dine in the deck salon.

is included in this). Soft Drinks
and alcoholic drinks are extra, you may send us a list and 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.
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 RICHMOND 9 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
In Private Gulet Charters, gulet is rented privately. There is no fixed itinerary
and it is possible to board or leave the yacht in any harbour, such as Bodrum, Marmaris, Göcek or Fethiye.
Prices change depending on duration and the month.

And of course, like all our boats,
the M/S RICHMOND 9 meets international safety regulations including life jackets, fire extinguishers and alarms.
