Sailing holidays in Turkey
Sailing holidays in Turkey are expected from gulets – Turkish wooden boats that provide breathtaking blue cruise vacations to guests from around the globe. However there is one major factor to consider when deciding on a gulet sailing vacation. This is to make to sure that the gulet you are hiring is equipped for a sailing holiday concept. Not all gulets will offer this style of holiday – while in some places on the internet – will give this impression. A gulet sailboat for hire, should mean that it firstly has sails to open, and secondly, uses them during your gulet charter vacation.
