What is a Gulet Yacht ?Category: Yacht Charter
The traditional Turkish Gulet is a handmade vessel crafted from wood by highly skilled master craftsmen. Also known as motor sailors, Gulets are extremely comfortable and ideal for long sea voyages as well as inshore coastal trips.
The Turkish gulet is very similar to the working boats of old times and, equipped with engines and modern facilities, they allow you to explore the beautiful Turkish & Greek coast (Nowadays in Adriatic as well ) in comfort and style and relive the spirit an age long past. Imagine wooden sailing boats thousands of years ago carrying cargos of wine and copper across the Aegean to trade with ancient civilizations, or fishing boats earning a living from the Mediterranean teeming with fish. Such boats were built along the Aegean coast of Turkey and many of the skills and designs used then have been passed down to today's boat builders. Our gulets, from 14-60 meters long. They have: beamy wooden hulls, very spacious and airy; high headroom which improves air circulation in a warm climate; high booms and bulwarks, very safe, especially for children; very spacious cabins, almost hotel comfort; spacious uncluttered sundecks, fully covered with sun mattresses; sheltered aft deck with coach roof; outside dining area covered with sun awnings; powerful engines for safe cruising and accurate itinerary planning; large water capacity; fully equipped professional galleys; pressurised hot and cold water system; adequate space and facilities for recreational equipment. What could be more romantic than cruising on a traditional wooden boat with all the sails up under blue cloudless skies?
