What is a Gulet?

Gulet is a frequently used boat for navigating the turquoise waters of Turkey. Boats are usually around 35 meters long and have six cabins and a crew of three or four. Gulet is perfect for families or groups of friends who want to enjoy their vacation and spend some time at sea!

Gulet Boat Features

Gulet is a traditional wooden sailing boat with a spruce hull, traditionally nail-free, built with strong wooden connections and a large mainsail on the main mast. A smaller sail is placed at the front of the boat, but also a genoa sail is used at the stern. Sails are usually four or five meters high, and gaffs are fitted for extra stability when cruising downwind.

Gulets were originally designed for both fishing and trading, but are now used for recreational purposes only.

Cabins that can sleep from two to twelve people depending on the size of the gulet boats; toilets; showers; kitchens; living rooms/bars; dining rooms/cabins etc. There is also plenty of deck space and sundecks on the boat.

Onboard features include private decks around each cabin area that lead to outdoor dining areas where you can dine while watching the boats pass. Some boats even have swimming pools that you can use whenever you want - in both cases we recommend checking Rotaneta before booking because the boat you are looking for is right here!

Some current engine sizes include 2x150HP engines and reach a maximum speed of 12 knots per hour while traveling.

Daily or Weekly Gulet Charter

You can charter gulets on a daily or weekly basis. The difference between the two is all about how much you want to spend your vacation. The cost of renting them depends on a few things, including:

- Number of people who will vacation on the boat,
- The route to be taken,
- The boat size and type they want…

Where to sail in Turkey?

Turkey is a country with a long coastline and many places to visit and sail. Mediterranean and Aegean are the ideal places for you to sail.

Charter a daily or weekly Gulet and enjoy your dream vacation!

If you are looking for a unique way to experience the Turkish coast, consider chartering a gulet. If you are looking for a holiday where you can get away from everything and protect your own comfort, Gulet is the right choice for you! One of the most important features of vacationing on a gulet is getting up early in the morning and watching the sun rise over the water. Much of Turkey's Aegean coastline offers stunning views that make this type of vacation an unforgettable experience!

Gulets are a great choice for a vacation if you are looking for something different from an ordinary blue cruise experience. They have everything you could want in terms of comfort and amenities, and they also allow you to explore some incredible places. From Turkey to Greece and Italy, these boats can take you where other boat types can't!
