Private Yacht Charter

Looking for the utmost in comfort and relaxation on your next vacation? Then look no further than our fleet of handcrafted gulets – traditional, hand-crafted sailing vessels made only in Turkey, as they have been for generations.

Ancient sites.  Stunning coastlines.  Dazzling blue seas.  Expertly-prepared homecooked meals using seasonal ingredients, often highlighted by a catch-of-the-day.  A friendly and expert crew is ready to attend to your every need. Gulet voyages are perfect for couples, families or groups of friends.

Imagine the freshest of meals being prepared by your personal chef as you and your family or friends gather in the lounge to share memories of your day.  Imagine enjoying a glass of wine on the deck while watching the sunset.   

The recreational activities available to you on a gulet ensure that you and your traveling companions are never bored: swimming, snorkeling, and even canoeing.  There are even onshore exploration hikes with your guide– like to the Greek ghost town of Kayakoy and to the dramatic classical ruins at Knidos – they’re all off of the beaten path...and all yours to be had.

To make the most out of your time at sea, we especially recommend our weeklong gulet itinerary, but, upon request, we can shorten the length of your journey to a few days.  You'll board your private gulet at about 2 PM, and on your final day, disembark around 10 AM.
