Air condition on gulet cruise boats is a topic where you should have all the info on how it works. Air condition on DELUXE gulets and air condition on STANDARD gulets is a different story. Here are the 3 things you should know about air condition on gulets. You can see what is the luxury standard of gulet very fast if you check what is their air condition policy.

You have to know that running air condition in cabins is possible only when;

a) gulet is cruising and the engine is on!

b) the generator is working to power the air conditioner.

While the gulet is cruising most of the time you do not need the air condition to be on. Air condition is needed when the gulet is in some nice bay and you wish to take an afternoon siesta or in the evening when you wish to go to sleep into a nice cooled down cabin.

But generators do not run on water!

They run on fuel. And fuel costs money! (and this cost is not getting any smaller in the past years).

So if the gulet has air condition but you pay a very small fee for charter you can not expect for air condition to run 24/7 or even all night! The cost for that is too high.

THE PROCEDURE ON STANDARD GULETS WHEN IT COMES TO AIR CONDITION, DESCRIBED FORM GULET OWNER OWNER DIRECTLY!

– During the day since everybody is on deck, engaged in their daily activity we do not run the ac.

– We usually turn it on in the evening around 6-7 PM to cool down the cabins so that the guests have a comfortable night.

– If the gulet is on anchor in a bay, it is a huge chance that there are going to be other vessels around you also. The generator which powers the AC is usually turn off at 10:00 PM so that other boats can enjoy the peace and quiet and they do the same thing also / gentleman”s agreement /.

– However, if the gulet is in port which provides shore power, we can run the AC all night. In this case, the clients will pay the amount on invoice stated provided by the power supplier in this port.

Translation!

1) Air condition will around 5 hours/day. Usually in the evening to cool down the cabins and in the morning when the sun is already up.

2) If you stay in port it can run all night. But sometimes you will have to pay some extra fee for this.

3) In the evening the generator is also off so that the noise does not bother other gulets that might be parked close to each other.

ON LUXURY GULETS!

Better gulets normally have generators and that is quieter and they also cost more so the cost of fuel is not so super important.

On Luxury gulets, this is the reason that lots of times you have from 8 – 10 hours of air condition/night included.

BUT THIS IS NOT THE CASE ON ALL LUXURY GULETS!!!

Lots of them also have 5 hours/day policy so you always have to double check this info with your agency.

ON DELUXE GULETS!

Most of the time you have form 12 – 24 hours/air condition/day included in price.

Always double check this info.

The bottom line is that more expensive the gulet is more air condition is included in price.

Also the better the gulet usually the smaller the noise of air condition which will allow you to rest more during the night in peace and absolute quiet.
