GULET UBI BENE YACHT REVIEW
The wonderful 44m/144.4ft luxury gulet UBI BENE brings together Turkish heritage and modern trends for comfortable and fulfilling holidays in the Turkey charter grounds. Whether guests are relaxing indoors or taking in the views and the sunshine outside, they can expect stellar service and plenty to entertain.
White walls, ceilings and furnishings emphasise the space and cleanliness within, and each room has its own distinctive pop of colour to personalise the space. Burmese teak is used for the flooring and surrounding cabinetry for an elegant finish throughout.
The salon offers 360 degree views through the surrounding windows, and light floods the interiors for a comfortable place to read and chat as your Captains takes you to the next amazing location along the Turquoise Coast. There is plenty of seating within for additional guests, with a chaise-lounger to starboard and an L-shaped sofa and table for casual meals, refreshments and board games after a meal.
Outside guests are pampered with a large shaded cockpit lined with a C-shaped sofa and table on both sides. The helm controls are the only thing separating this alfresco dining area from the soft sunbeds covering the stern.
Only the forward mast and sail cast a shadow on the foredeck, where guests have the choice of two rows of sunbeds to read, rest or listen to music while admiring the turquoise waters and towering cliffs to be found throughout the region. The area can be used to watch wildlife, and the forward gangway is a great spot to overlook the surrounding shoals and the fish that call them home.
The water toys
There are few waters as inviting as the crystal clear Eastern Mediterranean seas, and the group can take in each beautiful coral reef and its enchanting inhabitants with the snorkelling equipment on board. There's also the opportunity to catch some of the delectable big game fish that visit these spots by using the fishing equipment on board.
Lastly, take the chance to explore along the coast by paddleboard, reaching places that S/Y UBI BENE and the tenders cannot go. Even if guests don't have much experience paddling in open waters, tumbling into the warm Aegean Sea is hardly a misfortune!
There is ample room on board to sleep a group of 10, who have five beautiful en-suite cabins just as clean and fresh as the main salon. The layout comprises of 1 Master suite, 2 double cabins and 2 twin cabins.
The stately full-beam Master suite is well-suited to honeymooners and couples celebrating a special anniversary: In addition to the king-sized bed, there is a chaise-lounger, widescreen TV and DVD player, and an en-suite bathroom with his-and-hers sinks, a bathtub and shower.
The double cabins have queen-sized beds, TV entertainment, ample storage and an en-suite bathroom with a bathtub and shower, the same as the Master suite.
The twin cabins are just as well-proportioned as the double cabins, and also come with TV entertainment, plenty of storage and an en-suite bathroom with a shower.
Luxury gulet UBI BENE is the best of Turkish heritage and modern sensibilities for a luxury yacht charter like no other in the Eastern Mediterranean - make her yours summer or winter for family getaways and special events.
