The day begins with Mediterranean breakfast - fruit, olives, feta and kasar cheeses, pine honey, sour cherry jam, eggs, tomatoes and bread, with fresh orange juice, coffee or tea. For lunch, you can expect mezes including beans in olive oil, sauteed aubergine in tomato-garlic sauce, green salad and oven baked courgette casserole. Traditional börek will accompany the afternoon tea. The dinner could include grilled calamari, tarator sauce with crushed pine nuts, sauteed purslane and stuffed vine leaves, followed by grilled sea bream with olive oil and lemon sauce or spiced chicken with vegetables. On the gulet, you can try best Turkish wines such as Angora, Cankaya and Saraffin. The national drink in Turkey is raki, a licorice-flavored spirit.

This idyllic cruise means sailing with the nature. It means also experiencing the history of human being from the sea rather than from land; a journey which carries you to the private beach of Cleopatra, the eternal fires of Mt. Olympos and Myra the archaeological remains of ancient civilizations.
For the lovers of the active life, sailing in the clear waters provides the opportunity of Swimming, Snorkeling fishing,  Mud bath and Diving. Sailing in Turkey also allows you to experience a thruly enriching cultural exchange with the hospitable and gracious people of the coastal villages and towns. The tempered winds which generally blow from the west and northwest make the long summers ideal for the yachting and seem encourage an appreciation of nature. From some of the turquoise coast's unspoiled and sheltered bays, you can see mountain peaks rising to almost 3000 meters above sea level. Fortunately, modern facilities and comfort have not developed in Turkey at the expense of ancient hospitality and slower pace.
 A gulette is a yacht typically built of pine wood and styled with pointed fore and round aft.
 
Traditionally they have been built in Marmaris (Bozburun) and Bodrum area in Turkey and hence are referred to as "Bodrum-type" yachts or " Gulettes"; sometimes also referred to as 'Caiques'. Each one is equipped with one or two masts but of the weight, they are in fact more suitable for cruising than for sailing. They have superior sea going quality are very comfortable, offering large living areas, wide sun decks, spacious cabins, WC/ showers and a sun aft deck furnished lounge area. A gulet is a traditional handmade wooden boat equipped with masts.
 
The most common gulets have 6 to 8 double cabins and so accomodate max. 12 to 16 passengers. Unlike cruises on large ocean liners, on a gulet you can explore the secluded and often deserted bays, coves and islands of the spectacular Turkish coastline. You will see a hidden Turkey, beautiful beyond belief, and most of it completely unseen by the average tourist! During the day there are plenty of chances to swim and snorkel in the clear blue waters or explore the natural and historical sites along the way. Features of a gulet include an interior salon/bar area and a fully equipped galley. All cabins have en-suite with hot and cold running water. There are 1 or 2 sundecks with comfortable sunbeds and a canopied aft deck with cushioned seating, freezers to keep drinks cold, and a CD/cassette player. The gulets come with facilities for outdoor and indoor dining. Also a dinghy with outboard, a ship-to-shore radio,mobile telephone and life jackets are on board. All the boats are government approved with fully qualified captains.

No experience of boats is required. All you need to do is relax!
 
 
What is the best time of the year to go    ?
Let us not simplify matters by trying to judge what is the best time of year for yacht holiday. You go to the Mediterranean and the Aegean to get brown.
What is the use of going so far out if you look no different at the end from the mob packing the sands at any beach?
Now to get the very special, deep, perfect tan unique to the Mediterranean you would have to go there! And the browning time is most any time of the year. But the most ideal one is the mix of sea breeze, salt and sun which you find only on your yacht. Second half of the May, June and September are generally hot enough to tan without burning. For those who wish to swim at any time of day and night and for those who are out and out sun worshippers, we suggest July and August.
Cruising in May and October expose that serene beauty of nature and this is perhaps the best time as the coves and beaches are not crowded also a whisper you a hint that cost is lower then original hot season.
