many ways a gulet is like a full service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly."

Where we sail
The schooner MARGARITA is one of this
selected group. Not only that this ship has been created by ship builders using traditional methods, but sea-farers
and artists have also added their ideas. You can see their inspiration in the basic design and in many fine-crafted
Once on board the MARGARITA you will find yourself in an atmosphere of nostalgia which evokes the golden age of
world-class sailing ships.
The SY. MARGARITA is a gaff-rigged schooner
with a sail area of 442 square meters. When all sails are set and the wind is singing in the rigging, you can hear
rushing, gurgling noises under the bowsprit. What a magical feeling, to lie on the deck underneath the dome of
the sails and to glide over the sea!
The construction of the ship ensures that you will have a smooth and pleasant experience of sailing. Because the
MARGARITA is so stable, even women and children feel quite safe and protected.
The SY. MARGARITA meets all the demands of its discerning clientele for a nostalgic and romantic cruise. At the
same time it offers all the comforts you would expect to find on holiday.
We have 9 cabins (for 18 guests) with wide, comfortable double beds or single beds. Two cabins are with a third
bed for a child.
Our crew is the heart
and soul of the ship.
The crew of the MARGARITA all learnt their trade in the hard school of diving for sponges. In addition, they have
45 years of experience in dealing with guests on charter cruises. Specially chosen for their qualifications and
personality, the crew sails the MARGARITA and looks after the guests at the same time.
For guests who visit us in the cooler months,
the rooms and bathrooms also have heating
systems, which also dry the towels.
You can keep the bath dry by showering in the separate shower cabin. Your bath here is large and comfortable and
the toilets work using a pressurized water system, just like they do at home.
You sail along the "coast
You will experience the sun of the Aegean, the sea breezes and the proverbial hospitality of the people. The coast
of Turkey, with its deep inlets, wide gulfs and sheltered bays, and the nearby Greek islands, is a unique holiday
region. The pleasant climate, crystal-clear water and the delightful, ever-changing scenery of the Eastern Mediterranean
are waiting to welcome you. The schooner MARGARITA will visit magical harbours and coves and you will get to know
the most popular bathing resorts and harbour cities. If you want, you can wander through famous archeological sites
or use snorkeling equipment to discover sunken harbour moles.
The Captain of the schooner MARGARITA knows each harbour and every cove. The cruise will follow a fixed route which
will be discussed with everyone on board.
No sooner has the ship dropped anchor in one of the turquoise-coloured bays than the MARGARITA crew invites you
to have a go at water skiing, windsurfing and kayaking. You can snorkel to your heart's content! In the months
which are not so warm, walks and rambles to waterfalls or to nearby typical villages are the favourite pastime.
On request, the Captain will also organize excursions to points of interest and ancient cities either on the coast

is considered to be among the finest in the world. On board the MARGARITA you will find the finest Turkish fare,

Meals are maily served on deck under the awning which protects you from the sun. In cooler months, our guests dine
in the deck salon. The bar in the salon is a favourite meeting point where you can socialize and enjoy an aperitif.
The "sun downer" is served in the fore ship'. There you will find a comfortable seating area with cocktail
tables. It has been known to happen that "sun downers" are still being enjoyed long after sunset...
Why an Incentive Cruise on M/S Margarita
Designing a meaningful cruise incentive award is unquestionably one of the best ways to increase company loyalty
and boost moral. Frankly, nothing motivates people to work harder than the thought of not having to. And although
a land-locked resort is great, where's the excitement of travel? The romance of the sea? The thrill of discovery
and adventure? There just isn't a better way to motivate people to work harder than the thought of an exotic, luxurious,
relaxing cruise to exciting destinations.
A cruise is the ultimate group incentive because it offers two incentive awards in one: the luxurious pampering
and superb facilities of a luxury land-based resort combined with the allure of travel to exotic destinations.
Consider the joy of discovering new places while indulging mind and body in the most luxurious surroundings imaginable.
The endless pampering and impeccable service. The superb culinary pleasures of the Turkish cuisine. Then consider
the alternative: a mass-market megaship. Masses in the dining room. Masses by the pool. The lines and the loudspeakers
and the crowded tenders.
Make it your Dream Team
Let's be honest
about air-condition on gullets
There is nearly none of the gullet charter-companies who tells you the truth about the use of air-conditition on
Gulets. Yes, yes MARGARITA has AC and you think vou can switch it on when you like. It's not! On a boat the AC
can only run when the generator is on, or in a harbor when connectet to 220 Volt. But mainly you are in anchorbays,
often next to a neighbor who doesn't like the noise of your generator and you wouldn't like it either during the
night for example.
So most of the gullets have come to a gentlemens agreement not to disturb eachother - AC can be used on the most
of the boats 2-3 hours in the morning or at night from 20 to 24 hours.
