Gulets have lots of deck space for sunbathing or relaxing in the shade. Clients normally eat behind one large table at the back of the gulet outside while in case of bad weather you can also eat in the saloon.

You can get gulets in 3 main categories (Standard, Luxury, and Deluxe).


CABINS ON GULETS: Cabins are meant for sleeping only so all you need is a bed a toilet and a shower. But with the evolution of gulets, also cabins are getting bigger and better and much more comfortable.

Some cabins really look like the most luxurious penthouses with Jacuzzis, plasma TV’s, DVD’s, and huge space.
However, remember that most important thing on your blue cruise is a deck space and the crew that will be providing your services.

DECK: Out on deck, there’s plenty of space for sunbathing along with a covered dining and cushioned seating area. Most also have a spacious indoor saloon/dining area. The foredeck makes a large sun bathing area and the huge aft deck provides a shady cushioned area for relaxing and eating al fresco.


SALOON: The saloon is usually fitted with a bar, and has also dining facilities; even thought guests usually eat outside on the deck. In most of the saloons, you can find a TV with DVD, and air condition.
