Covid19 Safe Private Cruising Holiday

The safety of our guests is our top priority. So what are the benefits of a Private Gulet Charter with Zephyria Yachting?

  •  Private Gulet Charters offer a unique experience. Due to the space available on our gulets, you can practice safe social distancing with ease, added to that you are well away from any crowds. A gulet is like a private floating hotel, where you have the flexibility to explore the beautiful coast of Turkey without having to be with anyone apart from your own traveling party.

  • There is only a limited number of crew members on our gulets. For our guests’ safety we are constantly checking and recording the temperatures of our crew.

  •  The crew wear masks and gloves during all customer service activities.

  • In addition to our daily routine of thoroughly cleaning all the cabins, bathrooms and commonly used areas, disinfection processes are also implemented.

  • Due to Turkish regulations, after every charter the whole yacht is fully disinfected and sterilized by a legal & certified health company. Chemicals used during the disinfection process  are approved by the Ministry of Health and WHO Gulet Disinfection Process

  • Other Covid19 safety procedures that are in force by the Ministry of Health are applied throughout each charter cruise.
