Turkish Gulets refer to traditional Turkish broad-beamed wooden handcrafted motor sailing vessels with 1 or 2 masts, a raised bow, and flat stern. These gulets were formerly made and used by sponge divers and fishermen to transport their catch. But these days, Turkish Gulets are used luxuriously particularly for yachting holidays.
Most Turkish Gulets have 4-8 double or triple cabins and can accommodate 8-20 passengers, therefore, ideal for enjoying vacations with friends and family. But there are many different sizes and designs of gullets that have different features and capacities. Normally, a gulet is well equipped and nicely decorated to deliver its passengers the most pleasing experience. To avail utmost comfort for the passengers, nowadays, most gulets contain an indoor lounge, sundeck and ensuite bathrooms. Anyone without any sailing experience can hire a gulet and enjoy a vacation with his or her family and friends because these gulets have professional captains and chefs to look after the passengers.
Every cabin of Turkish Gulets has a double berth or single upper and double lower bunk-berths, a wardrobe for hanging clothes, an ensuite bathroom with modern toilet facilities and a pull-out shower hose fixed with the basin. Interior features of Turkish Gulets include indoor dining area, a bar, a saloon, and a completely outfitted gallery. The back deck includes a fully covered lounging and dining area and the forward deck has different types of sun beds which can be shaded by a canopy when the gulet is not sailing.
Normally, electricity in Turkish Gulets runs at 12 V/24 V. You can bring your portable PCs, phone or camera chargers, electric or battery-operated shavers etc. Other electrical appliances can be connected normally while the gulets are tied to the harbour or land.
Gulets are especially perfect for yachting holidays because of broad beams that give passengers enough deck space and ample amount of rooms for spacious cabins under the decks.
Turkish Gulets can be of different sizes, from small 50 foot (15 meter) long craft with all the required equipments to luxuries, large 108-foot (33 meter) air-conditioned ones with utmost modern amenities.
The other things that may be included in the facilities of a gulet are fishing lines, board games, CD player, a fridge/freezer to keep drinks and food cold and snorkels & masks. One of the most pleasing experiences can be fishing your own dinner and getting that cooked by the chefs.
