Modern-day Gulets are hand-crafted wooden boats specially designed and built for leisure and pleasure at shipyards along Turkey’s southwest coast. They have low profiles when it’s about design, making them very stable in water and fitting for exploring shallow coves and bays where bigger boats are unable to venture.
Acting like floating hotels, Turkish Gulets come with an infinite range of options – from the most basic 1-star hostels to lavish, 5-star, ultra-luxury accommodations and everything in between.
The Gulets are always the crew. Travelers do not need any sailing knowledge or experience to enjoy Gulet Holiday. (The size and service level of the gulet determines the number of crew on the ship.
- Each Gulet has an open sundeck for sun-seekers and shaded areas for those who prefer to escape the sun.
- Gulet cabins tend to be smaller than hotel rooms, but this rarely causes problems for guests. After all, you’ll spend most of your leisure time on deck, in the water, or exploring your destination—and very little time indoors.
- There are always separate sleeping quarters on the Gulets, but many travelers enjoy sleeping outside – listening to the cool flames of the water and watching the stars in the dark night sky.
- Boat galleys are incredibly small compared to restaurant kitchens – but the Gulet’s cook is the owner of the small space and is responsible for all the food preparation.

Development of Gulets
As recently as the early 1970s, those who wanted to explore the splendor of the Turquoise Coast by boat had to go on a private yacht, or aboard a fishing or sponge boat. With the full comforts of the rich and famous (provided you were rich and famous yourself, or were friendly with someone you knew), or you could put it on a working boat with some creature comforts. There was no choice in between.
Fortunately, as more and more people discovered the joys of leisurely sailing on Turkey’s picturesque beaches, the Bodrum region’s knowledgeable shipbuilders have adapted their work to better suit the needs of travelers from all walks of life.
