Our Gulets

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. We have both Standard and Superior gulets.

Standard Gulets

These gulets operate on our guaranteed departures on our 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, they are authentic, Turkish-built, wooden motor-yachts.

They all have en-suite cabins (private bathroom for each cabin) and normally have around 7 to 9 cabins per gulet, resulting in a capacity of between 14 to 18 passengers. The cabins are mostly double and twins, with some gulets also featuring triple and quad cabin varieties. Although they do not have air-conditioning, guests onboard rarely sleep in the cabins anyway, preferring to "sleep under the stars", taking their bedding up onto the large upper deck's mattresses.

Superior Gulets

These boats are a cut above the standard gulets. They are also of authentic wooden construction and each cabin is en-suite. The most important difference is that the superior cabins are air-conditioned and also tend to be decorated to a higher standard. Superior gulets run on tailor-made charters and for private groups, but only for 7-night tours (not available on 4-day cruises). If you wish to have a Superior gulet for a private group then please email us for a quotation: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
