Book a cabin or the whole gulet!

Turkish Gulets

No sailing experience required, these gulets have a professional captain and chef to look after you in style. 

Gulets are attractive wooden motorsailers, contemporary versions of the traditional Turkish coastal trader, and are ideal for 2-3 families or a group of friends who want a unique cruising holiday aboard a fully crewed yacht. We offer a small fleet of traditional yet specially designed Turkish Gulets from Gocek which sleep 12 to 18 guests. Every cabin has double or twin beds and is fitted with electric 220v sockets for hairdryers and shavers, air-conditioning, en-suite shower/WC with hot and cold water. Cabin charter is also available if you don't want to take a whole gulet for your exclusive use.

Full board is included (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and meals served onboard consist of a variety of fresh salads, fruits, grilled meat, occasional local fish and local specialities. Turkish gulets are also equipped with a large deep freeze, storing high quality meats and fish. Fruit and vegetables are bought fresh locally during the cruise. A bar is available at very reasonable prices.

Depending on your itinerary you will set off after breakfast and visit two different places before anchoring for the night either in a small village, a lively town or in a secluded bay. Meal times will depend upon cruising schedules and the wishes of all on board. Dinner on the aft deck is usually the highlight of the day; a long leisurely meal sitting under the stars listening to the water lapping at the hull of the Gulet.

As well as being splendid sailing vessels, these Turkish gulets are also excellent watersports platforms with a windsurfer and canoe, as well as snorkelling and fishing equipment on board for your pleasure. The rear deck is the lounge/dining area and at the front is the sundeck where you can relax with a long refreshing drink and a good book.

Fethiye is a lively town that has managed to preserve its local charm, The old town has a great fish market and well-stocked fruit and vegetable stalls. After dinner take a stroll to the Bazaar area, experience a hamam (turkish bath) or simply relax with a drink at one of the many bars on the waterfront. The pedestrianised town centre is still an atmospheric enclave of twisting streets and welcoming bars. There are Lycian Rock Tombs and an amphitheatre - both of which are well worth a visit.

Take a boat trip in the Dalyan Delta, meandering through a maze of reeds past 4th century Lycian rock tombs and the rocky acropolis of Ancient Caunos. Visit the mud baths and cover yourselves in therapeutic sulphur mud - great fun for all ages! Once the mud’s dried, wash yourself clean in the neighbouring clear water springs. The whole process is believed to relieve rheumatism and cleanse and tone your skin, too. The nearby sandy Caretta Beach is one of the last breeding grounds of the famous loggerhead turtles.

Cold Water Bay is a few miles from Gemiler Island with its Byzantine ruins and close to Olu Deniz, said to be the most beautiful beach in Turkey. This sheltered bay is a popular anchorage and a wonderful place to swim and snorkel. It gets its name from the cold water spring in one corner of the bay. A gravel path from the beach leads up to Ali Tuna's restaurant, a firm favourite with a great view of the bay. if you eat dinner there you can have free breakfast the next morning.

"Had a great trip. The weather was better than we could have hoped for late October. Portway are without doubt head and shoulders above anyone else we have chartered from The base manager is excellent."
Gocek 2014 - C.G.
