Gulet in Turkey

Turkey Gulet: A Simple Definition

Boring presentation from Wikipedia:

“A Turkey gulet is a traditional design of a two-masted or three-masted wooden sailing vessel (the most common design has two masts) from the southwestern coast of Turkey, particularly built in the coastal towns of Bodrum and Marmaris.”

The Turkey gulet description on our Goolets page is a little bit different.

First check this nice SLIDESHARE PRESENTATION called: “Turkey Gulet Definition” 

Second, Check out this 7 amazing facts about Turkey gulets that will make you want to try it for yourself.

Gulets are ships (mostly wooden) where you will:

a) have a crew that will cook, clean, sail and make you happy

b) check different towns, bays and amazing places every single day

c) book only a cabin or charter entire vessel for your group of 6 – 16 guests (or more)

Inspirational Quote 7


FACT NO.1 – Gulets are much more comfortable than what you might think.



Very comfortable sailing yachts range from 10 – 15 meters. 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 motor boats – however, they are still ships, so the cabins can not compare to hotels or huge cruise liners.

FACT NO.2 – You get to see the places unreachable to other tourists


Some of the most stunning bays you will visit during a Turkey gulet cruise are only reachable by sea. If you stay in a hotel, you will miss out on some of the really great spots and beaches.


FACT NO.3 – You do not have to clean, cook or worry about safety
