     A Gulet                        





A gulet is a Turkish wooden yacht, built  in traditional Mediterranean style for comfortable recreational voyages.


It is designed to cruise in combination of sailing and motoring


Number of passengers a gulet carries is between 8 to 24 which depends on its size. 


The most common gulet is around  24-meter long  and  7-meter wide (82 x 23 feet) that accommodates 12 passengers in six cabins.


It has a crew of four or five, a captain, a cook and two - three sailors. 







  Each cabin has a double berth       

  or twins, a toilet and shower. So   

  a gulet is a kind of  floating hotel

  with wonderful food on board. 









Common  quarters  include  a  large saloon, a fully equipped galley, lots of uncluttered deck space, plenty of sun mattresses strewn all over to laze on while tanning or to sleep watching the stars.











While front deck is used for sun bathing or outdor sleeping,  stern is the place of resting, reading or coctail place as well as dining quarter.



Meals are freshly prepared, including a variety of fresh salads, fruits, grilled meats, local fish and Turkish specialities.
