Turkish Gulet Holidays Tailored to suit you

“Living the Dream”

Over 36 years experience and knowledge chartering gulets along the south west coast of Turkey

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 will celebrate 36 years in 2023.  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.



9 plus 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 Carpe Diem 5.




A comprehensive list of 15 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. All luxury gulets carry a variety of watersports equipment.



What you can expect from the 10 standard and high 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 20 to 34 metres (3 to 8 cabins).




Jenny Day has been bringing together individuals and couples into small group holidays for over 36 years. Many of these holidays have been led by her. Over the years, a loyal following of DayDreamers have joined her in exploring different itineraries and locations, excavations and land excursions. These 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.


“Absolutely glorious to be back on board Cevri Hasan V again in Turkey, after almost 3 years. Beautiful idyllic anchorages with few boats and people in sight,  as we meandered from one bay to another.  I  have to say that this is still one of the best holidays I have ever had. The food and service is superb and the Turkish coast just magnificent. I loved the endless swimming off the boat, water skiing and general conviviality. I can’t recommend DayDreams too highly for people of all ages and from all walks of life”.  John Valentine from Cambridge travelled with friends May 2022.”

“For a big birthday, we chartered Cevri Hasan IV and V.  Originally booked in 2019, 3 postponements later, we finally had our longed-for holiday.  Both Captains Hasan and Taner were wonderful captains.  Both ran a tight ship.  The team worked so hard, always smiley and patient, even with the most demanding rosé addict.  The captains kept the boats ship shape at all times. The food was delicious.  Every mooring in the Hisaranu gulf was more stunning with each day.  We ate delicious fish in Datca and were surrounded by endless beautiful scenery and aqua seas.  We swam and kayaked all day.  My best holiday ever with close friends.  Thank you Jenny, your organizational and admin skills are brilliant and you are just on the right side of bossy!!”  Sarah Keeling and friends from the UK travelled in May/June 2022
