Smallest gulets that you can book are around 20 meters, while the sizes go up to 30 meters even for standard gulets, and up to 55 meters for the most luxurious vessels.

Beware: Gulet is bigger than sailing yachts and motorboats – however, they are still ships, so the cabins cannot compare to hotels or huge cruise liners.
