Imagine yourself on a yacht, sailing along the Turquoise coast of the Mediterranean, walking among ancient marble colons, wandering in the endless tunnels of thousands of years old underground cities, diving into the warm and crystal clear waters, swimming over ruins of the sunken cities, running on the beaches where heroes of the history had landed, resting on the sands where queens and emperors shared their love.
If any of these sounds a bit attractive, then check the details below and reserve your cruise to turn your holiday into a golden memory !
 
What is a Gulet (or Goulette)?
Traditional Turkish yachts are called "Gulet". A gulet is an all wooden handmade motor sailing yacht built for cruising the coasts in the calm, warm waters of the Mediterranean. These yachts are built to center life on deck during the charter. A spacious deck and a large, half-moon shaped aft, dining and lounging areas are their main features. Accommodations from 6 to 16 persons in seperate double cabins, some with en suite wc/shower is available. They might not all be equipped to sail, but most havea main sail to be used when the wind is suitable and the clients wish.
Life on Board
You could lounge on the deck sunbathing, sipping your drink; read your favorite novel or explore the turquoise waters with your snorkel. Deck ladders down to the sea and deck showers to get the salt off come in really handy. Windsurfs or surfboards should definitely be tried out for endless fun. Water skis and jet skis are also available for rent at most beaches. Land trips to ancient ruins are extra. You can even fish for your supper and your cook will gladly prepare it for you. Mealtimes are another form of entertainment with all that exquisite Turkish cuisine and wonderful conversation. Having a meal under the stars on a serene sea, gently touching the sides of the boat is an experience not to be missed. For those who prefer a different view each day and are prepared for the changing moods of Mother Nature, a holiday on a goulette is the perfect solution.
 
Your Crew
Crew usually consists of a captain, cook and a seaman/mechanic. On the larger gulets a fourth crew member will be at your service. They are very friendly, ready to help you for arelaxed atmosphere but at the same time extremely professional, familiar with the coastalwaters and the gulets inside out. The crew members are usually source of information on the local history and surroundings, being able to advise the best places to snorkel and anchor etc. Also you can get some tips from the cook on local cuisine.
 
What to Bring
You need casual wear only; non slip foot wear, swimming suit, a sun hat,some t-shirts and shorts, a sweater for cool evenings and for excursions and climbs, blue jeans and strong footwear. Instead of one large suitcase, we recommend that you take two small soft bags as they are more convenient to store in your cabin. What else? Well, some towels, a mini first aid kit including antihistamine, cream plus toiletries, for the gentlemen who don't want to grow a holiday beard, a battery operated razor and shaving soap. Handsoap is available upon request and one hand towel and bedding is provided. Please be forewarned that electrical appliances may only be connected while the yacht is tied up to land.
