"The small harbors and settlements offer an intimate view of coastal life which large ships cannot replicate authentically.
In many ways a gulet is like a full service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly."

Goin' to Greece
When chartering a gullet in Turkey, you might consider going to Greece for visiting some of the beautiful islands like Symi, Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos or Patmos.
So let us explain a few points you should know:
1) There are extra harbor taxes for Greek waters
(about 300 € one week/boat)

What to bring
Travel light - is our best advice to you, swimsuits and T-shirts is all you need on board during daytime. In the evenings people dress casually, but bring sweaters and long trousers if you are coming in the cooler months. It's a good idea to bring a pair of soft shoes or sandals just to use on the boat.
On board we provide hand towels only so please bring your own bath and beach towels.
All this should be packed into a soft bag, not a suitcase, which can be folded and stowed away to give more room in your cabin.
The Mediterranean sun is very bright and on a moving boat hotter than you think, be sure to pack sunglasses, a good suntan lotion and a hat. If mosquitoes find you tasty then bring mosquito repellent and a camera is an absolute must,
and please send some of your pictures to us so we can place them on our pages

Ideal for a group up to max 8 persons

Relax and unwind as we sail along the clear turquoise warm waters of the Mediterranean that is home to multi-coloured fish and sea life. Life on board normally involves up to 4 hours a day cruising along the coastline with the rest we spent at anchor in one of the many sandy beached or pebble stones bays.
Here you can relax on deck, go ashore to explore, or enjoy the delights of the waters.

The order of the day is informal.
Only pack what you can get in one rucksack. Forget the ball gowns, high heels, and two-piece suits, this is a chance to live life in the slow lane. You get to know your travelling companies and sample the traditional way of life enjoyed by Turks for generations. What could be more interesting and enjoyable than sipping a local vintage and watching the sun set across the wide space of the Mediterranean on board the deck of your own sailing ship.
