Gulets are large charter schooners built on the model of traditional Turkish barges, which were originally designed to ensure the space needed for the perfect vacation of 10 to 50 people.
Most of the gulets are two-masted “floating hotels” or “hotel ships” made of wood, and suitable for hosting 10 to 20 guests. Convenient cabins provide a comfortable feeling, while the 2-4 persons staff can offer both half board and all inclusive accommodation. Thanks to the wooden construction, the interior design mostly preserves the original colour and polished furniture, which offer special atmosphere and harmony needed for perfect relaxation.
Rental rates for gulets are higher than those for usual charter ships, and because of the ship size and extra services offered by the staff, it is necessary to calculate with a minimum cost of €800 / person / week during the summer period, but this price may multiply in the case of higher category ships.
Gulet rental is most optimal for groups of friends of minimum 10 people or for corporate journeys since these ships can accommodate much more guests than normal charter ships and, moreover, they can offer services similar to those in a hotel.
