many ways a gullet is like a full service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly."
More about the Blue Cruise
Map of the Dodecanese Islands
When chartering a gullet in
Turkey, you might consider going to Greece for visiting some of the beautiful islands like Symi, Rhodes, Kos, Kalymnos
So let us explain a few points
you should know:
1) There are extra harbor taxes for Greek waters
(about 300 € one week/boat)
2) Passenger limit 12 pax
Ideal for a group up to 10 guests, - all cabins with air-condition
The gullet M/S TUFAN 5 is one of the boats
that really sail. Not only that this ship has been created by ship builders using traditional methods, but sea-men
and artists have also added their ideas.
Once on board the M/S TUFAN 5 you will find yourself in an atmosphere of nostalgia which evokes the golden age
of oldtimer sailing ships.
The M/S TUFAN 5 meets all the demands of its discerning clientele for a nostalgic and romantic cruise. At the same
time she offers all the comforts you would expect to find on your holiday.
She has 5 cabins with wide, comfortable double beds. The cabin in the aft is a spacious master cabin. Your bath
everywhere is large and comfortable with a real shower-cabin (all cabins have now closed shower cabins) and the
toilets work using the flush system, just like the ones you use at home.
All cabins have air conditioning which can be run for several hours daily during naps or when preparing to sleep
for the night.

You will experience the sun of the Aegean, the sea breezes and the proverbial hospitality of the people. The coast
of Turkey, with its deep inlets, wide gulfs and sheltered bays, and the nearby Greek islands, is a unique holiday
region. The pleasant climate, crystal-clear water and the delightful, ever-changing scenery of the Eastern Mediterranean
are waiting to welcome you.
The Captain knows each harbour
and every cove on this beautiful coastline. The cruise will follow a route which will be discussed with everyone
The Turkish cuisine, on board the M/S TUFAN 5 you will find the finest
Turkish dishes, prepared using the freshest vegetables, fish and meats. Our cook is an expert in his field. He
will pamper you with three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and a dinner. If you have any special dietary requirements
(if there are certain foods you dislike or mustn't eat), simply let him know. He will be able to prepare dishes
to suit your exact taste.
Your meals on board: Full board (3 meals + tea time) price 32,- € p/person
Captain and owner Kemal,
is a devoted spearfisher,
to support to the dinner
Soft Drinks and alcoholic drinks are extra, we can buy them at supermarket prices and you just pay us the bill
plus a service-extra for the crew of only 10%: We think that's a fair offer and all previous guests did appreciate
that very much.
Meals are mainly served on deck under the awning which protects you from the sun. In cooler months, our guests
dine in the deck salon.
Her engaging skipper, Captain Kemal, happens to be a great fisherman; chances are that you will eat more often
fresh fish right off his speargun. He is assisted by a very good chef and a smiling deckhand, usually his son Tufan.
This excellent crew of three is happy to put up the sails whenever possible and will do everything to make your
Let's be honest about air-condition
There is nearly none of the gullet charter-companies who tells you the truth about the use of air-condition on
Gullets. Yes, yes M/S TUFAN 5 has AC and you think you can switch it on when you like. It's not! On a boat the
AC can only run when the generator is on, or in a harbor when connected to 220 Volt. But mainly you are in anchor
bays, often next to a neighbor who doesn't like the noise of your generator and you wouldn't like it either during
the night for example.
So most of the gullets have come to a gentlemen's agreement not to disturb each other - AC can be used on the most
of the boats 2-3 hours in the morning or at night from 20 to 24 hours.
Decks plan and technical datas
And of course, like all our boats,
also the M/S TUFAN 5 meets international safety regulations including life jackets, fire extinguishers and alarms.
