Gulets (often spelled Gullets) were originally wooden fishing boats used in Southern Turkey.
These boats are equipped with motors as well as fully functional ketch, schooner, guletta or gaff riggings.
Gulets generally offer large expanses of deck space perfect for lounging or sunning, large salons and dining areas, and several cabins with individual bathrooms. The most luxurious offer air conditioning and all of the water toys you'd like.
The number of passengers on a boat depends on the yacht's size and design. All the gulets offer their guests separate accommodation, services and entertainment. The friendly crew have their own quarters and will give your party as much privacy or service as you desire. Most boats have air-conditioning in the cabins, cooling them comfortably for an afternoon siesta and for the night. The system is generally turned off when the crew retires to reduce noise, especially in the harbors.
Dubrovnik, Split and Šibenik are all very popular starting points for your gulet cruise.
Dubrovnik is definitely the place to see! Worth a visit for at least one or two days. From there, you have an abundance of choice - visit Mljet Island, on to Korčula and Hvar, and perhaps finish in Split.
If you start in Split you can have a great cruise to discover big towns situated on stunning islands nearby, such as Brač, Hvar, Korcula and Mlet - all of which are fabulous destinations in their own right.
You have great nightlife opportunities - every evening you can be in a different town with its unique history and attractions.
