- all cabins with air-condition
Take a lot of sunshine and crystal
clear water in all colours between turqoise and emerald, put some mild breeze, pine-shaded shores, lonely bays,
steep coasts, exotic islands and, add a couple of olive, fig and lemon groves. Then mix them with bright blue sky,
picturesque sunsets and enchanting starry nights. Would you like it? Well, if yes, then how about a "BLUE
VOYAGE" on a Turkish wooden sailing yacht called GULET, hand-made of mainly pine.
In the meantime, a lot of titbits will be prepared for you. Since the Turkish cuisine is one of the best in the
world, You will enjoy the delicious food and love the exotic flavour!
In the evening, taste a glass of excellent Turkish wine or raki and let the unforgettable times of the day pass
in review and spend some time with your fellow travellers.
The crew consists of three members; the captain, the cook and the sailor. They will take care of you in the best
way of Turkish hospitality; never obstrusive but always kind and punctual. Anything from serving meals to cleaning
is their job.
The gullet M/S YILDIZHANLAR 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 YILDIZHANLAR you will find yourself in an atmosphere of nostalgia which evokes the golden
age of oldtimer sailing ships.
The M/S YILDIZHANLAR 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 6 cabins with wide, comfortable double beds or single beds. Four cabins are with a third bed. Your bath
here is large and comfortable and the toilets work using the flush system, just like the ones you use at home.
All cabins have
which can be run for several hours daily during naps or when preparing to sleep for the night.
Your Itinerary: You may start your journey either in Bodrum, Marmaris or Gocek, we can plan and arrange it with you, depending

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 fixed route
which will be discussed with everyone on board.
No sooner has the ship dropped anchor in one of the turquoise-coloured bays than the M/S YILDIZHANLAR crew invites
you to have a go at windsurfing or kayaking. You can snorkel to your heart's content! In the months which are not
so warm, walks to ancient places or to nearby typical villages are the favourite pastime. On request, the captain
will also organize excursions to points of interest and ancient cities either on the coast or inland.
The Turkish cuisine. On board the M/S YILDIZHANLAR 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: You may choose between Full board (3 meals
+ tea time) price Euro 30,-
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.
Let's be honest
about air-condition on gullets
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 YILDIZHANLAR has AC and you think you can switch
it on when you like. Unfortunately 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 an 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
And of course,
like all our boats, also the M/S YILDIZHANLAR meets international safety regulations
including life jackets, fire extinguishers and alarms.
