Jenny Day started DayDreams in 1987.  Early on, she organised  a successful luxury weekend to Istanbul for 100 guests   As a professional PR consultant she continued to promote Turkey as a holiday destination and went on to lead many journalists to Turkey in the late 1980s on gulet holidays. Intent on sharing the experience with friends, she returned several times over the next couple of years, organising her own private charters on the first Cevri Hasan. They were so successful that friends told their friends and the word spread. Her dream of offering a style of holiday, once the preserve of the rich and famous, to a wider audience had become a reality and DayDreams had become a thriving business.

The Mediterranean and Aegean coastlines are ideal for gulet cruising and sailing. Still largely unspoilt providing many magical moments for that chance encounter with dolphins or a loggerhead turtle.  Whether you are exploring the Turkish coastline or Greek Dodecanese islands, you can guarantee an unforgettable holiday.

DayDreams has worked with the owners of all the Cevri Hasans since 1987. Today there are two available for chartering, Cevri Hasan IV and Cevri Hasan V.  Working with our Turkish handling agents, Flama Tours of Bodrum, we also offer an extensive selection of 35 plus gulets and  schooners for exclusive private charters.  

The idea of bringing together small groups of individuals and couples into gulet parties was an important feature of the business from the very start. Single travellers in particular are able to experience life on board a privately chartered gulet and this philosophy continues to be an important feature of the business. Individual cabins can be booked on a few gulet holidays during the summer months on board the Cevri Hasan V. Our in-depth knowledge of the coastline means we can find places off the beaten track to explore, from wild remote anchorages to interesting small villages including archaeological sites. Foodies will also enjoy Turkish cuisine. Standards have risen and menus and recipes vastly improved since chefs and cooks watching Masterchef compete with each other ! 

As experts in Turkey and Turkish gulets and schooners, Jenny and her team can advise you about every aspect of your holiday to help you in planning an itinerary to suit you.  We are a safe pair of hands to make your holiday a memorable experience.



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.


“Thank you from us all for a wonderful and spoiling 10 days on the Cevri Hasan V.  Captain Taner and his crew have been so kind, cheerful and attentive.  Nothing is ever too much trouble.  Immaculate service always with a smile. We have chartered another gulet for a few holidays but we now recognise that Cevri Hasan V is in a class of its own.”  Amanda and family travelled from England July 2018/2019/2022/2023.

“We have enjoyed a wonderful relaxing holiday on Cevri Hasan III with Mustafa and the ‘boys’ – can’t believe it’s 38 years since we first met Jenny on a gulet holiday before the birth of DayDreams.  It just gets better each time.” Carolyn Freeman and her late husband Mike cruised with the Travel Club around the Dodecanese islands, June 2017.

“The trip has been exceptional in every respect. Captain Mustafa is as expected, wonderful. The crew perfect. The cook more so. The wine divine, in a nutshell, we’re golden!! “ Cheers” Ron Burns & family from USA travelled on Cevri Hasan III in May 2013
