Standard Gulet

If you are after your own personal and private yachting experience, then look no further than hiring your own gulet for your cruising holiday. We have a range of yachts for your group to enjoy a holiday along this amazing coastline.

A gulet is a traditional design of a two-masted wooden sailing vessel from the southwestern coast of Turke, particularly built in the coastal towns of Bodrum and Marmaris. Today, this type of vessels, varying in size from 14 to 35 metres, are popular for tourist charters. Gulets are known for their large sun decks out front with sun beds and also a big lounge area out the back, perfect for those long summer days cruising the Turkish coast.
