Amazing masterpieces in all shades of Turkish blue… Gulets are wooden sailing vessels traditionally built along the coast of Türkiye that have evolved into motor/sail yachts. Averaging a length of 70 to 80 feet, they feature a broad beam and two masts. The wide stern is ideal for dining, whereas an awning provides protection from the sun. The spacious foredeck has plenty of room for moving around and sunbathing. These classic boats will offer you unparalleled comfort.
The average boat has 4 to 6 cabins below deck with a double and twin beds. Boat builders of different regions have their own unique designs for these amazing gulets. You can find the most popular gulets in Bodrum, Marmaris, and Fethiye. Compared to others, the Bodrum gulets stand out with their unique shape. Gulet-type vessels are characterized by their sterns that have a more rounded shape, and by their entire bodies that are very low and close to the water. In other areas, such as Marmaris and Fethiye, over time boat builders have discovered that if they raise the stern higher, they can gain additional space.
One of the most celebrated holiday destinations in Türkiye and the world, Bodrum needs no introduction! Bodrum is a paradise for travellers, home to yachts and to the unique local gulets, whitewashed houses, and an abundance of famous bays.

Gökova (Kerme) Bay is a narrow gulf extending about 100 kilometres along the southeast of Anatolia, between the Bodrum and Datça Peninsulas.
