5 things you may not know about a luxury yacht charter

We all can imagine what a luxury yacht charter consists of; blue pristine water, luxurious cabins, delicious meals and lots of relaxing. Yes these are all part of yacht chartering a luxury gulet in Turkey but there are plenty of things that you may not know about luxury yacht charters that make them the best type of holidays.

So without further ado, here are 5 things you may not know about a luxury yacht charter.

1) Crew speak lots of different languages

With Alaturka depending on where you are from and what language you speak, we often recommend yachts that have staff that speak the same language. Some of our deluxe yachts have crew that speak over seven languages between them. We want you to be extremely comfortable on your luxury yacht charter and therefore try to ensure you can communicate with at least one crew member in your first spoken language. On all of our yachts we do have English speaking crew as well.

2) Combine cruises with land activities

Often we have travellers that have limited time in Turkey and they fear if they book a cruise they will miss out on all Turkey has to offer. On our luxury yacht charters, our guests can not only expect swimming, snorkelling and activities on the water, but we can also accommodate activities on the land. Tours to Pamukkale when moored in Fethiye – no problem. Why not add a city tour of Rhodes with a local guide onto your tour. All this and more can be arranged to be included in your luxury yacht charter.

3) Local guides can be included

As mentioned in the above, Alaturka can include a local guide for your activities. Prefer to have a local guide with you on your entire journey? Our expert guides can be included on your luxury yacht charter to describe the history of sites you visit on your holiday at sea, recommend local haunts and cafes to visit and be there for anything you may need on your trip.

4) TV and entertainment systems

Your enjoyment does not end when the sun sinks into the sea. Our luxury yacht charters have large indoor lounges with entertainment systems, Plasma TVs, DVD players with a selection of movies and playstations to keep the family entertained throughout the entire day. Or want to stay outdoors in the warm night air; some of our gulets even have Jacuzzis. Imagine yourself sipping champagne under the luminescent moon in a hot tub!

5) Not all luxury yacht charters are expensive

A big misconception of luxury yacht charters is that they are extremely expensive. Indeed there are yachts that only the very rich and famous can afford to travel on but we also have more economical yet luxurious yachts to suit groups of all sizes and budgets.
