Turkish Gulet Holidays Tailored to suit you

“Living the Dream”

Over 30 years of knowledge and experience of Gulet chartering in Turkey and the Greek islands

DayDreams is a small private company specialising in gulet cruising and sailing along the stunning coastline of south west Turkey. Founded by Jenny Day in 1987, the Company is now in its 34th year. The much loved Cevri Hasans remain at the forefront of their tailor-made gulet holidays along with numerous other luxurious gulets and schooners. And yes we do use the sails.

The DayDreams team, both in the UK and Turkey, are experts in organising tailor-made gulet holidays both for private charters and cabin bookings. They can advise on all aspects of a gulet charter, from the appropriate gulet to suit individual needs, to recommending an interesting itinerary - archaeological sites and areas best suited to walking and exploring remote villages on shore are a regular feature. In recent years, the Dodecanese islands between Samos and Rhodes have become a favourite cruising area too.  Istanbul city breaks and land tours to areas such as Cappadocia and the inland Aegean are often added to a gulet holiday. The team's organisational skills and expertise really will make the difference.



10 superb gulets and schooners to choose from in the deluxe category, ranging in size from 28 to 47 metres, all with a variety of water sports equipment, spacious interiors, master cabins, excellent captains and crew and most important, a professional chef. There is also a fully inclusive ‘package’ available on the wonderful Lady Christa, Dragonfly and Carpe Diem 5.




A comprehensive list of 14 luxury gulets ranging in size from 20 to 34 metres (between 2 to 8 cabins).  Something for everyone in this category, whether a small family wanting an exclusive charter, or a large group celebrating a special anniversary.   One large gulet, Oguz Bey, can take up to 22 passengers. All luxury gulets carry a variety of watersports equipment.




What you can expect from the 11 standard gulets - a well maintained boat with an excellent captain and crew, good food from the on board cook, but limited water sports equipment.  Several of these gulets frequently use sails and Grande Lale and Grandi offer a 'sailing package'.  Just none of the more luxurious aspects of the luxury and deluxe categories. Sizes range from 16 to 26 metres (2 to 8 cabins).




Jenny Day has been bringing together individuals and couples into small group holidays for over 33 years. Many of these holidays have been led by her. Over the years, a loyal following of DayDreamers have joined her in exploring new locations, excavations and land excursions.  The gulet holidays continue on board the Cevri Hasan V with Captain Taner and his crew, individuals can book on a cabin only basis.







DayDreams Travel offers gulet holidays, both private charters and cabins only, on a diverse range of gulets from low budget to luxury and superior deluxe gulets, with numerous flexible itineraries along the Turkish coastline and Greek Dodecanese islands.

DayDreams Travel was founded by Jenny Day in 1987 following a corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Using her expert organisational skills she went on to organise several  gulet charters. They were so successful the word spread and her dream of offering a special style of holiday to a wider audience become a reality.


“A dream come true: Kindness of the captain and crew, Efficiency of the organisation, exquisiteness of the food, beauty of the scenery, everything was there to make this holiday on Cevri Hasan IV absolutely perfect ! Thank you all for everything, it will remain in our memory forever," Eleonore & Rupert from Gloucester, England - September 2019 and 2020.

"My husband & I decided to arrange a 'once in a lifetime' holiday, to take our 5 adult children and partners away to celebrate our significant birthdays. Our decision was it had to be a Turkish gulet. An Australian friend recommended Jenny Day and DayDreams Travel. She was very helpful and attentive to detail with suggestions of itineraries, menus and very knowledgeable about the boat, the area and other things important to us. It was designed for us, tailor-made. Sara & Jeremy Curnock Cook from England travelled on Cevri Hasan V in late May 2019. Click here to read the full text.
