Bodrum gulet charter – One of the most exciting seaside cities in Turkey is the world reknown city of Bodrum. Located in Southern Turkey, it is home to the classic Turkish sailboats we call gulets. The origin of gulets actually derived from wooden boats that were constructed for sponge fishing decades ago. Later as time went on, these lovely traditional vessels went through a conversion and refined in construction and technology to what is now referred to as gulets or gulet ketch.
The harbor of Bodrum is full of these amazing boats for hire from the months of May to the end of October. Embarking on a Bodrum gulet charter gives the term Blue Cruise a whole new meaning in Mediterranean sailing cruises. The reason mainly is because of the type of private boat charter, the itineraries, the warm Turkish hospitality and the Mediterranean cuisine. Put these all togther and you have a unique holiday experience waiting for you to discover!
Bodrum combines the best of land and sea with its fantastic waterfront restaurants, marinas, night clubs and much more. A shopping experience in the Bodrum region is an adventure in itself. The shops are decked in authentic Bodrum souvenirs and handmade crafts. When you decide on a Bodrum private yacht hire, you may just wish to stay overnight for a look around to see the sights and stroll along the promenade. If you arrive early enough a visit to the Bodrum St. Peter’s castle should be on your places to see – among other places of interest. There is never a dull moment when you visit the incredible city of Bodrum.
The transfer time from the Milas airport to the Bodrum harbor is at most an hour away. So you may not feel so tired for a pre-trip excursion around the centrum. Another wonderful characteristic of embarking from Bodrum is that is the perfect point of origin to the Greek Islands in the
Dodecanese. But don’t let the gulet cruise stop you there. If you let your yacht charter agent know ahead of time, you can venture on a Bodrum gulet sailing holiday to the Cyclades to see the well known ancient islands of Mykonos and Santorini to watch the sunsets.
If you’re keen on a Bodrum blue cruise vacation, you have made the right choice for an unforgettable experience in holidays at sea in Southern Turkey!
