Summer 2019 is here, in the Western and Eastern Mediterranean

September 2018 E-News

Image

Summer 2019 is here, alive and well, with yacht charters being booked steadily in the Western and Eastern Mediterranean. The most popular locations at this time for Summer 2019 are Greece, Croatia, and Italy. This does not mean that these cruising areas will be chock a block full of yachts and charterers, as there are still only a set number of crewed yachts available for private yacht charter, the same number of crewed yachts that were available last summer. This means that if your interest is in a yacht charter vacation for next summer to cruise the waters in these locations, the time to book is now rather than later so that you can be on board a great charter yacht in your charter location of choice next summer. Demand now is out stripping supply. Good news is that the demand has not pushed charter pricing any higher. Were we to predict, we believe that by the end of this year, the quality Croatian Gulets that we offer will be almost fully booked for summer 2019, and many of the motor yachts in Greece will be heavily booked for next summer. This booking interest in private yacht charter is busier than we have ever seen in the last 30 years.

Yacht Charter News:

Croatian Gulets

 
Image
 

Having morphed, so to speak, from traditional cargo hauling vessels, the Croatian Gulets are large, very wide, and generally wooden yachts, with large spaces down below where large guest staterooms, each with ensuite bath are located, and ample deck space.  While these are wooden yachts, the beauty of wood is highlighted on board, with lovely varnished woodwork highlighting the wood grain, providing a warm traditional interior.  There are masts and sails, along with the traditional keel, however, these aspects found on a Gulet are more for steadying the yacht, than for actually sailing, as Gulets are very heavy, and wide, making sailing generally a non-starter.  We think a Gulet is best explained as a large very comfortable moving platform from which to enjoy the Croatian coast and islands. 

 

On top of being a large comfortable yacht with ample on board space, Gulets are a true pricing value in the world of yacht charter, and often are the best pricing value in which to enjoy cruising in Croatia with a full crew.  The crew are usually all Croatian, however English is well spoken on board, and Gulet crews are very good at providing great on board service, and excellent food.  However, Gulets are a traditional vessel only in Turkey, Greece and Croatia, so taking advantage of this great charter value would be in one of these three countries, with the best selection available now in Croatia, where many of the Turkish Gulets have now re-located.  Croatian Gulets book a year in advance, and many Croatian Gulets have a number of bookings already for summer 2019.  So don’t be late, don’t hesitate.  If a Croatian Gulet charter is of interest, call or email us now!
