DayDreams boat charter services are tailor made to suit individual clients, providing flexibility across all arrangements. For example, clients travelling from the USA, Australia or South Africa would make their own flight arrangements, but might require full board, boat charter and a tailor made tour on land. British based clients might want assistance in booking flights, flexible arrangements on their menu, but no land arrangements. There are many other variables.


As we have a large number of boats to choose from, we have produced the table below as a guide to the cost of weekly boat rentals on standard, luxury and deluxe gulets. These rates are in GBpounds and subject to fluctuations in currency exchange rates.  We will provide a fixed rental in GB pounds for a specific boat if dates can be agreed at the time of quotation.  For detailed GBP quotations on individual gulets email

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

Tailor-made land tours to Istanbul, Cappadocia and throughout the Aegean and Mediterranean regions can be added.

DayDreams Travel was founded by Jenny Day in 1987 following a 5-day/5 star corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Using her expert organisational skills  she put together 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.


"I recreated our favourite family holiday to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday and all the family joined us for a week.  Everyone, aged 11 to 70, had a fabulous time. There was enough space for moments of quiet but mainly we partied!  The boat was beautiful, the crew were all charming, the food was delicious and the sun shone. Perfect!  Luckily I have a big birthday next year!"  Kate Warnock-Smith and family travelled on Kaya Guneri 3 in August 2016

“It was wonderful to return after so many years to Cevri Hasan V with Captain Taner leading us to ever more beautiful places in Turkey. Thank you.“ Carlyn & Laurie Hunter travelled in September 2014
