A lot of visitors have shared their gulet charter experiences with me and you could help others too by reporting your own gulet experiences. These reports show that only a fraction were quite satisfied, moreover, too many were certainly not happy with their gulet charter company.
Yet, they have found those few trustworthy gulet businesses, with charter fees that are very competitive, and shared those with me.
The perfect blue cruises are ideally enjoyed along the Turkish coasts (the Turquoise coasts like Caria and Lycia) and the Dodecanese in Greece. Other Greek islands like the Saronic and Argolic Gulfs are also suitable, but the Cyclades (although very pictoresque) can have rather rough winds and waves in August.
The sailing areas in Turkey are rural, pristine and safe since far remote from Ankara or Istanbul. For the Adriatic Sea you can use the page gulet cruises in Croatia - Split & Dubrovnik.

Gulet charter costs
Contrary to normal crewed charters, gulet cruises are usually package holidays and the extras like linen, windsurf board, dinghy, outboard engine, transfer from the airport will be included into the charter fee. Moreover, you can also include the gourmet dinners on board! Port fees, diesel fuel, etc should be included as well. Note that if you take a one-way trip (for example Bodrum - Marmaris) you will need to return to Bodrum.
