Turkish Gulet Yacht Building
A different concept in marine literature - the Turkish Gulet Yachts. These boat's sizes vary between 15 and 45 meters and are constructed in Turkey along traditional lines by seafaring family firms using slightly changed techniques over the centuries. However, they have been adapted to the most stringent of traveler’s requirements and now offer luxury and good taste that cannot be found in any other craft of similar history and background.
Gulets are ideal charter boats - which is their main use in Turkey. Full cooking facilities are fitted and gulets are built for long sea voyages as well as inshore coastal trips. They make an ideal holiday home in which to explore offshore areas in comfort and style. They are cruising for recreational activities - and it is this aspect which could be the gulets most exciting adaptation to the gulf.
Tourism is now becoming an area of increasing importance and gulet sailing would be a very popular option for hotels to offer visitors. Corporate entertaining would take on a new dimension if it took place on a traditional wooden boat - reminiscent of the Ottomans in the eastern Mediterranean. The climate in Turkey also makes a gulet the ideal place to entertain your friends or business visitors.
