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 Mausolus.)

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.

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.
