It’s already April and nearing the Easter Weekend. It’s really time to start thinking holidays. If you haven’t already decided on what you’re going to do and or where you’re going to go, there are some really good places to get you started. But before we share them with you, let’s explain to you why it’s really a good time to start cracking down on booking a blue cruise yacht holiday. Whether you’re going to stay in a hotel and combine your holiday with a weekly gulet cruise to Greece or another magnificent place; or do your whole vacation on a yacht charter – if you don’t start making plans now, you know what’s going to happen at the last minute – and we all want to enjoy our holidays the way we deserve to.
Reasons Why You should book your Yacht Charter Holidays Now
We may have mentioned before that there are about 500 Turkish gulets to choose from in Turkey. This is really not a very large amount considering that there are thousands of other types of sailing and motor yachts in Turkey as well. Also out of this 500, how many are suitable or ready for a charter? So folks, the bottom line is, stocks are limited.
Having your heart set on doing a traditional gulet charter in Turkey is great, but we also need to take into consideration that these gulets can get limited in the budget-wise aspect of things. So next reason; limited stock for high demand of the most popular types of gulets to hire. This is generally the “luxury” labelled class gullets. These gulets are booked the soonest.
Not all gulets are the way we want them to be. There are different sizes with different cabin styles. When you think about it, you would most likely wish to stay in the cabin style of your choice and not have to settle for whatever is left over (vip, master, double, triple, twin and single). Afterall it’s not everyday you have the chance for a dream yacht vacation in Turkey.
Obviously you aren’t going to be living in your gulet cabin all day long, but there will come times where you will be in it, using it, and sleeping in it. So again, we are talking about “limits”. Choose the gulet you want with the right cabin types for your group – then everyone will be happy-go-lucky sea campers!
Toys, toys and toys. What about the kids, the teenagers, or the auntie who loves to jet ski at age 80? Not all gulets have the toys we expect on board. Each gulet is equipped with some sort of selection of water toys for your fun time activities in the water, but again going back to limits, if you want to get all the toys you want to play with during your gulet charter vacation, you have to find the gulet that has them available too. Otherwise you could be paying extra to rent them instead.
Itineraries are the easiest part of the whole yacht charter holidays, it’s finding the right gulet that makes it a bit sticky – and it will get harder the longer you prolong your booking. A yacht charter agent can do their best in finding a gulet with the right crew, that is suitable for you. However when the choices become limited, there is really not much anyone can do.
