Gulet ‘Perla’ (recommended)
Alan and family from UK chartered ‘Perla’ in August 2015:
Yes the whole family enjoyed a wonderful week on board the Perla. The crew were very attentive and Captain Zoran was always available for advice and guided us to some perfect bays for swimming and some sightseeing. The food was well presented surprising especially as the galley was so small and hot. Bozo the cook was excellent. The accommodation was spacious for the week on board. We fully understood the situation regarding the supply of air conditioning and everybody coped very well with the heat at night. We will certainly recommend the Perla and Adriatic holidays to our friends. If the opportunity arises in the future we would love to re book the Perla and her crew.
Best wishes, Alan & Jenny’

Important notes and information about ports/routes:
In Croatian ports, the mooring rule is: ‘first come first served’. However, a bigger boat has priority over a smaller boat and smaller boats are expected to give their space in the high season, if needed. Ports can not be pre-booked. In ports, gulets sometimes have to raft up along side of each other.
It is different in the marinas (such as http://www.aci-club.hr ) where all boats have their own space, electricity and water.
A gulet can spend a night at anchor only if the weather conditions are good. The Captain has to make that decision for the safety reasons of the passengers and the boat. Currents in the Adriatic are relatively weak but there is a constant circulation under the influence of winds (this applies for the summer period too).
