5 reasons to charter a Gulet

Whether anchored in calm nature bays, or exploring charming seaside villages, your Gulet charter is your passport to discovering the dazzling coastlines of Turkey and the Dalmatian islands of Croatia. A Gulet charter experience goes hand-in-hand with enjoying the authentic local hospitality on board, and the sights, flavours and layers of history only accessible by yacht.

Gulets are motor-sailors, varying in size mostly with four to 6 cabins to accommodate groups of from 6- 12 guests.They range in level of comfort from basic to super luxury, with private ensuites, air-conditioning and some even boast a jacuzzi on deck!

For 20-years Luxury Charter Group has been inspecting and selecting the best quality Gulets with the best Crews in Turkey and those select few in Croatia that pass our strict criteria. With our first-hand experience and personal contacts with the boat owners, we can match your budget and preferences to the most suitable Gulet for your personal charter vacation.

Here are just some of the reasons to spend your charter vacation on a Gulet:

• Authentic cultural experience – from the impeccably crafted, solid timber boat and dedicated crew to the delectable cuisine, you will be immersed in the warm, welcoming flavours of the Turkish or Croatian way of life.

• Local knowledge and genuine passion – Luxury Charter Group's Gulets come with a professional full-time crew with lots of local knowledge. There is always an experienced cook on board to provide you with mouth-watering Turkish, Croatian and Mediterranean style meals.

• Spacious – ideal for large groups of friends, extended and multi-generational families, of between six and 12 guests with plenty of deck space for relaxing under the Mediterranean sun.
