We have moved our traditional wooden motor yachts, known as gulets, to the beautiful island of Rhodes for a brand new ‘floating’ Greek houseparty on a 8 cabin Gulet

In a week we explore this corner of the Aegean, visiting four Greek islands, as well as Rhodes, with lots of opportunities to explore ashore, spending time in colourful harbour towns and relaxing in beautiful bays you would never discover from land.

The crew takes care of sailing, cooking and making sure you get the most out of the cruise (including reading the weather and flexing the itinerary accordingly). The cruise includes all meals on-board, which means a continental breakfast, a simple 2-course lunch, afternoon tea and 2-course dinner likely to feature fish or chicken with vegetables or a salad. Drinks are not included, but you can buy beer, wine and soft drinks from the bar, and there are plenty of opportunities ashore to buy a cold drink from a harbour-side taverna, or an ice-cream from a beach-side stall.

Twin-centre holiday

You can combine a week cruising the Aegean with a week at either Caesar’s Gardens Hotel or Lindos Memories Hotel: ask us for prices.

For Summer 2017 our planned Gulet for Rhodes departures is a 8 cabin gulet - The boat is traditional in style, crafted in wood and powered by its reliable engine, though when the winds are right, the Captain may set the sails. Each has 8 cabins offered for sole occupancy, creating a nice group of 8 guests which is well-looked after by the crew of three or four staff. Thew boat has a sun-bed area, a shaded seating area and an ‘al fresco’ dining area. There’s an under-cover ‘saloon’ or living space, and a bar.

If you have to book a late flight home from the Gulet, we will look after you and your bags so you can have an enjoyable last day on this beautiful island.

  • 32 - 35 meter ship
  • 8 basic, small double/twin cabins
  • Bar
  • Lounge/dining area

Due to changes in the Greek laws we have had to make a change to our Rhodes Gulet for summer 2017.

The boats we use are Turkish Gulet Boats which are registered in Turkey and fly a Turkish flag – as normal. All ships are registered in the country they are from and based in. Greece has changed its laws and no longer can boats not registered in Greece collect and drop off guests on a cruise. Therefore now Gulets can only pick up guests in Greece and drop off in Turkey OR pick up in Turkey and drop off in Greece.

Due to this change in law we will have to amend our Greek cruises slightly. The change only applies to the last day where rather than returning to Rhodes as we did previously, you will get off the boat in Marmaris in Turkey and come back by high speed Hydro foil.

The updated route for this breathtaking cruise will be -

Wednesday – Check into the Gulet

Thursday - Rhodes  to Halki stay overnight İn Halki          

Friday -Halki to tilos, stay ıovernight in tilos

Saturday -Tilos to Nsyros ,overnight in Nsyros

Sunday- Nsyros to Symi )(Stay overnight in Symi)

Monday - Symi to Bozburun on Turksih Coast

Tuesday- Bozburun to Marmaris

Wednesday – Breakfast and check out, to go to the port for 08.30

Gulet cruise from Rhodes Harbour with 8 cabins. 

Cabins are compact but comfy, with limited storage space and a tiny en-suite wc/shower. The majority of the cabins are double bedded for sole use. 

The majority of the time on this holiday you are on deck, swimming or exploring - so very little time is spent in your cabin.
