What is a gulet?

Gulet is a traditional wooden sailing vessel with origins from the south-west coast of Turkey. Similar vessels can also be found all around the eastern Mediterranean, but in last 30 years Turkey became a true power house in gulet building and chartering services offered. Today this type of cruising vessel varry in size from 14 and up to incredible 55 meters (in Croatia 44 meters) and are very popular for tourist charters.

In last 10 years the gulet cruise holidays become more and more popular also in Croatia!

It is very hard to sum up the description of gulets with the technical description of the ships. Gulet cruises are the total sum of relaxing atmosphere, wonderful scenery, excellent crew and great services all mixed up together to provde clients with unique way of travel.

Gulets are hand build to an ancient design but equipped with the modern interiors ready for a comfortable voyage. During the trip gulets visit remote spots along the coast full of ancient sites, beautiful coves and remarkable scenery while in the evening you can be either anchored in nice isolated bays or visit pictoresque villages, towns or islands.

Gulets "original" are hand build by handy craftsmen. They are an ancient design type of vessels but totaly equipped with the modern interiors which enables a really comfortable Blue cruise.

All gulets that provide charter for guestsr have shower and toilet in every cabin. Cabins are made for sleeping only so a bed a toilet and a shower is all you need. But with the progress of gulets also cabins are more and more luxurious. Now you can book gulets where cabins (expacilly the master cabins) really look like the most luxurious penthouses, plasma TV´s DVDs and with a lot of space. 
Still the most important thing on a blue cruise is food, crew and spacious deck space where you spend 90% of your time on a gulet cruise.

Out on deck, there's plenty of space for sunbathing along with a covered dining and cushioned seating area. Most also have a spacious indoor saloon/dining area. The foredeck makes a large sun bathing area and the huge aft deck provides a shady cushioned area for relaxing and eating al fresco.
