What is gulet?
For anyone who has never made a cruise on a gulet is the curiosity to try this experience. For those who have already made it is for sure the most beautiful holiday ever. Or at least one of the top 5 ones.
So, let see what Gulet is?
Gulet is a traditional design of a two-masted or three-masted wooden sailing vessel. Gulets are built in the coastal towns of Bodrum and Marmaris. Similar yachts can be found all around the eastern Mediterranean, but the best choice of gulet charters are in this area. Today’s gulets offer a different level of comfort and design. This goes from simple, smaller and of course cheaper standard gulets to luxury and boutique gulets with exceptional service and affordable prices.
In general, gulets have from 3 – 16 cabins with a double bed, toilet and shower. Indoor and outdoor lounges and fully equipped kitchen. Solarium with hammocks or mattresses in the shade on the back side and so-called sun-deck in the front. The crew consists of a captain, a cook and sometimes a deckhand on standard economy gulets. Luxury gulets have 4 or more crew members to guarantee an exceptional service on board.
Is possible Sailing with gulets?
Gulet yachts have sails, but they are not precisely sailing boats. Therefore, do not expect lots of sailing. Except for some gulets which design and equipment are suitable for a sailing holiday. The main reason is that gulets are massive and more significant than a sailing yacht. Gulets are designed for your comfort.
Of course, the captain will open one or two sails and switch off the engine time to time. But Gulet routes are designed for your relaxation in less windy areas. So, in general gulet can sail but mostly they use a motor. In case you want to experience real sailing, we’ll find the perfect gulet for you!
