Turkish Gulets & Schooners

DayDreams sources its collection of beautiful wood built gulets and schooners from Bodrum in south west Turkey – one of the most important Turkish towns with a tradition of boat building. (Bodrum was also the birthplace of Herodotus and the site of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world – the tomb of King Mausolos.)

The boats are built in a mixture of woods (pine, teak and mahogany) in a variety of sizes and standards, retaining many of the traditional features from the past, but always incorporating essential modern facilities and comfortable deck areas. They are all maintained to a very high standard and many include all the latest watersports ‘toys’ and equipment.

Gulets galore! A week or two aboard one of these romantic vessels really is living a dream. Waited on hand and foot, it is the perfect Turkish  gulet holiday for any group of people, whether a small family on a limited budget, or a larger group wanting to sail or cruise in style.

A professional, but relaxed informal atmosphere prevails with a captain and crew to run the boat and cater to your needs.  They are all available for private charters from May through to late October.  (There are also a few which can be made available in April.)

Gulet Charter in TurkeyFood on the Gulet Charter in Turkey

Delicious Turkish food is prepared by the cook or chef and all meals are eaten ‘al fresco’ on deck, except in early and late season, when you might prefer to use the comfortable saloon. We don’t operate a boat bar system. We liaise with you over your drinks and stock the boat in advance of your arrival. You then pay at cost when you arrive on board. You can also book on a full board basis and pay in advance.




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.”

“We had a wonderful trip on the beautiful Artemis. The boat is beautiful, comfortable and spacious, and the crew are absolutely fantastic. Every need was catered for and we felt so well looked after. What a beautiful place for an escape. Long leisurely days on deck or in the water swimming,  snorkelling and kayaking were complemented by trips into  gorgeous bay and hikes along the coast with stunning landscapes. The food is delicious (and plentiful) and they happily catered for our weird group of meat-eaters, vegetarians and pescatarians with great skill. We would recommend this trip to anyone looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle, a chance to truly relax and switch off, and and chance to be treated with kindness and warmth. Thank you Artemis and crew – see you next year! ” Laura Haynes and family from London travelled in May 2022.

“THANK YOU for your attention for our wonderful gulet holiday on Levant Kaptan  in July – it was purely magical. Captain Metin and the crew were wonderful”.  Neil Richardson travelled with his family and friends in July 2018.
