Gulet Cruising

Gulets are sailing vessels from a bygone era built in the traditional style of centuries past, offering a choice of onboard accommodation - from super luxury sailing yachts available for your exclusive private charter to great value cabin charters. Many cruises sail for just a few hours each morning and arrive at a new place every day - giving you have more time to see the sights, enjoy remote beach's and warm blue seas.

There’s plenty of choice when it comes to gulets, with a range of vessels to ensure both comfort and the quality that you would expect. Gulets are typically hand-crafted in Turkey. Gulet cruises can host groups from 2 to 24 people, with options for master, double or twin cabins.

Life aboard a traditional gulet

On most itineraries gulets cruise for an average of three hours a day, generally by motor to keep to schedule, under glorious sail when weather and time permits. There are plenty of opportunities for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking as your gulet journeys along the coast of Turkey, Greece, or Italy.

All food is prepared in the gulet’s galley by the onboard cook, who conjures up a variety of fresh local delicacies.

Breakfast typically consists of bread, tomatoes, olives, cheese, eggs, yoghurt and honey. Lunch and dinner are usually one or two main courses, accompanied by salads and tasty side dishes, followed by fruit. Very drinkable local wines are stocked on board, along with a range of spirits, beers, soft drinks and fruit juices.

History of the gulet

The word ‘gulet’ (pronounced 'goolet') probably derives from the French goulette, or schooner. These two-masted wooden vessels, usually made from local pine, were long used for transport and fishing along the southern coasts of Turkey. Typically designed with a sharp bow, broad beam and rounded aft, these days they are designed and fitted with comfort and not trade in mind.
