What is the gulet charter?
A gulet charter provides a calm and unique experience for families, couples, and groups. If you want safe sailing besides luxury, where all mechanical details are taken care of by a professional crew, then this kind of sailing is your ideal choice.
If you are new to the sailing world, or you are just an enthusiastic seaman with experience of smaller boats, then probably this is the first question to rise. Gulet yachts are water vehicles built with a traditional design and equipped with two or three wings. Its origins are debated, but Turkey must have played an outstanding role in its development, especially the areas of the marine cities Bordum and Marmaris. Today you can find this yacht model all around the world, where sea or ocean sailing is present. The size of such yachts can range from 14 to 35 meters and they are very popular also among tourists. Many people think that it is the wind that drives these yachts, as they have wings. But this is a mistake because you can state universally that such yachts have Diesel engines. Wings are only for decoration to represent the yacht type’s traditional and rustic past. You can enjoy the freedom of sailing through really unique routes with your gulet yacht and you’ll be surrounded by a professional crew who takes care of all details. You can spend a very pleasant family or friends’ day on board of such a yacht.
How does gulet charter work?
The image of Italian, Turkish and Croatian coasts is determined by Mediterranean pine forests and turquoise-colored sea waters, which may add a wonderful experience to your unforgettable sailing holiday. There are many ports that offer such yachts for tourists also generating revenue for the local economy. Such yachts are available in Greece , the Aegean coast or in Dalmatia and the Mediterranean too.
