Considerations

  • The capacity of the yacht should not be exceeded.
  • Yachts have a commercial passenger capacity. A three-cabin yacht can accommodate up to six passengers. The biggest mistake during a yacht holiday is overcrowding the boat. If such circumstances are detected, the coast guard will charge the skipper with violation of the law.
  • You must be familiar with the use of air conditioning in advance.
  • The use of air conditioning on yachts varies depending on its specifications. It is possible to use 4-6 hours per day on some boats and 24 hours on others. The difference is related to the boat’s engine size and power generator. You should clarify air conditioning usage by contacting the boat owner before the boat holiday.
  • The details of the route should be discussed with the skipper before the holiday.
  • Before you charter a gulet, you must specify the route. All yachts have a specific departure and arrival location. Generally, however, yacht holidays start and end at the same port. If you have a different plan in your mind, you should first consult the skipper. Check out ViraviraRoutes for more.
  • You should consult the crew about grocery shopping before the holiday.
  • When chartering a gulet, it is the customer’s responsibility to do grocery shopping. Customers can do shopping on their way to the yacht. However, the skipper should be consulted about the refrigerator capacity and the requested menu from the cook.
