Sailing Cruises in Comfort


This Anglo-Dutch company is the specialist in gulet chartering; apart from the odd week, when the company sells their gulets by the cabin, often for themed (painting, yoga, hiking) holidays, private charter is their sole business.

They have lovely boats which – here’s a thing, the rig on most gulets being largely decorative – actually sail as often as the wind allows. They carry plenty of sail and proper crews who know the ropes.

They also serve exceptional food: generous and imaginative meze (starter) varieties, and fine meat and fish courses. They also avoid the pay bar that most gulet crews run, which invariably adds up to pain at week’s end; there’s a pre-paid tariff – different rates for adults and children – which covers all the food and booze. There’s no corkage or service charge, which is why most guests tip generously at holiday’s end.

The company’s main base is Bodrum but it can also embark and disembark groups at Marmaris, Göcek, Kos and Rhodes so long as the gulet in question is not already tied to a particular port by a previous adjacent booking.
