A crewed cabin charter is the hire of a cabin space on a yacht (single, double or triple accommodation) , with captain and crew, for a specific period of time (usually a few days to one week). There are 7-8 cabins each gulet. The route of the cruise is fixed, as are the ports of embarkation and disembarkation. The charter fee does include the cost of food, its preparation and service. On board you will enjoy the delicious meals prepared with care by our cook, who will serve you typical local Turkish dishes which are as much as feast to look upon as they are to taste. Cabin cruises are designed for people who wish to make their holiday a totally new experience alongside new friends. Such cruises are often multi-national affairs, which make them especially interesting.
