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.
