Turkish gulets: the favourite of the Eastern Med

Turkish gulet charters have long been one of the most popular summer holidays in the Eastern Mediterranean, and it’s not hard to see why. With a long heritage of building traditional Turkish gulets, the craftsman responsible for designing and building these wooden boats has refined their craft to perfection over the years. The result? Relatively inexpensive, reliable and beautiful boats ranging from the ultra deluxe to budget, from 16 to over 40-metres in length. And the best part? With hundreds of quality gulets on the charter market, there really is a Turkish gulet to suit every budget.

With gulet charter holidays growing in popularity in the Mediterranean and beyond, here the Turkish yacht charter experts at Guletbookers look at why gulets are so successful in the Eastern Mediterranean.

HERITAGE

Turkish gulets have a long history along the Eastern Mediterranean, and gulets have formed part of recreational and commercial life for centuries. Turkish gulets are a special kind of vessel. Artisans take their craft seriously, and each luxury gulet is painstakingly crafted from high-quality woods of teak, iroko or maun. The wooden construction makes the gulets cool in the summer and cosier in the colder months of the late season.

COST

As most seasoned Mediterranean yacht charterers will know, chartering in Turkey and the Eastern Mediterranean is often substantially cheaper than its Western Med counterparts. Thanks to a fantastic exchange rate for European and American clients, luxury yacht charters in Turkey, Greece and Croatia can come at a fraction of the price one would expect to pay for a luxury yacht charter in the French Riviera. Unique gulets come in all shapes and sizes for all budgets, from super luxurious gulets for a sophisticated retreat for eight, to traditional Turkish gulets designed with large families and groups of friends in mind.

AVAILABILITY

With so many quality Turkish gulets on the charter market, the availability of yachts for charter in the Turkish Riviera, Croatia and the Greek Islands is fantastic. A wide variety of boats cater to a wide array of charter demands, with charter experts such as Guletbookers always available to discuss the perfect gulet yacht to meet clients’ needs.

CRUISING

The southeastern coastline of Turkey enjoysall year round, and gulet yachts are built for exploring the Turkish Rivieras’ tranquil gulfs and bays and are by far the most popular way to see the best of Turkey. Most bays along the Turkish coastline are undeveloped and surrounded by lush forests, making for the ultimate moments of privacy and relaxation in a beautiful environment.
