Traditional Wooden Gulets Along the Shores of Turkey in the Hundreds

Traditional Wooden Gulets Along the Shores of Turkey in the Hundreds

There are hundreds of traditional wooden gulets along the shores of Turkey.  This is probably one of the main interesting features of what makes the coastline and harbors so unique in appearance to visitors. Each handcrafted sailboat is ever so different from the other. They are as unique as the owners who have designed and built them – particularly the older ones built before 2010.  Unlike luxury fiber yachts, which are branded by big names such as Azimut; Turkish gulets are only branded by reputation in crew services, quality and comfort level of standards.

To charter a gulet sailboat privately means that like any other private charter yacht, the boat is yours for the period you book it. Blue cruises are known mainly as cabin charters on a gulet, shared with other passengers. Theses cruises are priced affordably. However the lesser known private blue cruises can also be in and around the same prices. Not all private gulet charters are high priced.  The charter rates depend on a variety of specifications and standards of the gulet; as well as the time of year.

Wooden gulets are well recognized in Turkey. There are hundreds – if not over a thousand of these types of charter boats in the Mediterranean and Aegean sea regions. You will find these boats mainly in the harbors of Bodrum, Marmaris, Gocek and Fethiye. Each season they line the harbors with the tall masts and elegant classic appearance.  Other countries which also charter Turkish gulets are available in Croatia and Greece as well.
