A private gulet along the coast of Turkey is a great suggestion for a group holiday. There are times in our lives when a group holiday is the only way to go: special family celebrations where a number of generations come together, grown up occasions to be celebrated with a great group of friends or just the pleasure in holidaying with a couple of other families.
There is always the villa option and many of our past clients have enjoyed group holidays in some of our larger villas. We now offer an exciting alternative, a brand new private gulet which accommodates up to 14 persons and there can be no more enjoyable holiday.
Our gulet is huge - 35 metres long and 7.80 metres wide, if you know something about boats then you will appreciate that these dimensions make for a very comfortable experience. The deck area is all about lounging, 14 sun beds with shade if required, seating at the fore, and seating at the aft, a huge dining table and Captain Kemal’s wheel. Steps down take you to the interior salon with another huge dining table (perfect for jigsaws!) and the open plan kitchen area where you can watch Nihat the Chef and his team prepare the amazing meals.
There are 3 cabins at the aft – 1 double and 2 twins, each with private bathroom. At the fore there are a further 4 double cabins, once again each with private bathroom. Each bathroom features a full size shower cabin and proper flushing lavatory! The boat has a central air conditioning system which is used to cool the cabins before bed time.
Our gulet is based in Marmaris and that is where you will board – the next 7 days will be spent cruising the Loryma and Datça Peninsulas. Whilst you are on board there are plenty of opportunities to hit the shore and explore the historic sites of Bozukkale and Knidos, wander through the small villages of Selimiye and Bozburun, maybe a stop in Datça town to replenish provisions, visit the barber, buy some of the speciality Almond Crunch. If there are youngsters on-board, they will never be-bored! As well as the sea activities, swimming, diving, snorkelling, fishing, canoe races this is the perfect opportunity to play group games or just read a book, and..… the boat is equipped with wi-fi!
Captain Kemal and his team of 4 provide you with a perfect holiday but in our opinion it is the planning and organisation that ensure the holiday is more than perfect, it has to be brilliant success and our team will liaise with you in advance ensuring that everything: special food choices, wine selection, quiz’s, jigsaws even Murder Mystery Games if required are considered and arranged.
A gulet holiday is an affordable way to enjoy having your own yacht for a week; it really is the holiday of a lifetime.
