During this year's edition of the East Med Yacht Show in Poros, Greece, we had the pleasure of being invited onboard elegant Queen of Datca, to attend a wonderful lunch, framed by picture perfect views, great company and warm hospitality. This magnificent superyacht, a 36 metre gulet launched in 2009, offered us a delightful setting for what turned out to be an afternoon spent in perfect comfort, style and gastronomic delight. In short: an inspiring introduction to all good things this wonderful vessel has to offer.
If you have a soft spot for refined elegance, spacious onboard ambiance and a perfectly balanced mix of contemporary luxury and warm, classic design, Queen of Datça will easily win you over. What becomes instantly apparent, is that she boasts a remarkable sense of space everywhere onboard. This airy nature is one of many enticing features, arguably one of her most attractive ones. Whether inside or outside, there is always that signature sense of openness which, combined with her designs based on luxurious high-gloss lacquered woodwork, results in an atmosphere that is both open and intimate, light and warm. A golden formula, especially considering the east mediterranean regions she calls home. The openness and richness of her native Turkish and Greek regions fit her well, comfortably taking her guests to any destination with speeds ranging from 7 to 12 knots.
It's easy to imagine Queen of Datca welcoming and charming her guests with great style, comfort and grace. She is obviously appointed with all kinds of contemporary luxury and amenities, but that's not what she is really about. She is about experiencing the seas in a classic way, enjoying magical vista views from her wide and open deck, offering her guests an experience of yachting in the traditional sense, endeavouring on classic journeys with ample contemporary luxuries at hand. And with a professional, friendly and capable crew of 6, Queen of Datca eloquently extends her noble nature wherever she goes.
We were welcomed onboard by Queen of Datca's friendly captain Ramazan Doğan, and her hospitable owners, who introduced us to the vessel's friendly nature. With regards to guest accommodation, Queen of Datca has 5 luxurious guest suites for a company of up to 10 guests. All are spacious, elegantly designed in a classic and subtle style, including large en suites with large shower areas. Rich in high gloss wood and embellished with nautical-themed artwork, Queen of Datca presents stylish elegance and contemporary comfort for all her guests. There are two full beam master suites with kingsize beds, one aft and one fore, one double and two twin suites to be found onboard.
Our lunch took place on the aft deck, where the large al fresco dining table is an eye-catching element. Enjoying the vista views, blue Greek skies, a cool breeze and top quality cuisine, our lunch was an exquisite introduction to Queen of Datca's pleasant nature. We were treated to several courses of delicately prepared dishes, perfectly served and accompanied by a delightful selection of wines. Our time spent onboard is pleasurable and relaxing, showing us that this is a superyacht of warmth, hospitality and grace. Queen of Datca simply delivers, and all of her charters will undoubtedly be delightful, comfortable and luxurious experiences. With this lunch she has certainly charmed us, as she will undeniably keep charming many guests in the future.
