Our Gulets

What is a gulet?

A gulet is a traditional wooden cruising vessel, which comes from the southwest coast of Turkey. Gulets vary in length, height and breadth and it is believed that no two gulets are identical.

Nowadays, most gulets are not rigged for sailing and use motor engines instead. Our fleet has large sun decks, comfortable communal areas and a variety of cabin layouts. Our gulets are in the "Classic Plus" class (see description below):

Classic Plus Gulets

Our main Classic Plus gulet, called "Eighty-One", operates on our 18-39 and mixed-age departures on the East to West (one-way, 4 days Olympos to Fethiye), West to East (one-way, 4 days Fethiye to Olympos) and Fethiye Return (7 days Fethiye to Fethiye) routes. Like all our gulets, it is a Turkish-built, wooden motor-yacht.

This gulet has en-suite cabins (private bathroom for each cabin) - 8 cabins in total (a mixture of twins, triples and doubles), resulting in a capacity of around 20 passengers. The main difference between a Classic gulet and a Classic Plus gulet is that the Plus gulet is larger (longer, wider, with more cabins) and has air-conditioning! The air-con runs for around 7 hours a day: 4 hours from 8pm to midnight and 2-3 hours during the day.

Important: The air-con can only run when either the engine or the generator is running and we have to switch off the generator at midnight in order to keep night peace. This is why we run the air-con from 8pm to midnight, in order to cool the cabins ready for sleeping. Alternatively, some travellers prefer to "sleep under the stars", taking their bedding up onto the large upper deck's mattresses.
