Private Gulet Charter – Turkey is home to the origin of fascinating yet traditional style yachts called gullets. They provide the ultimate in dream vacations and become one of the most ideal holiday styles for families, groups and couples seeking a private gulet charter in Turkey.

Gulets are made from various woods of mahogany, teak and pine. The quality of these woods, and workmanship is dependent on the owner who has it built, or builds it himself. The actual place of the creation of gulets comes from the spectacular city of Bodrum. There are many shipyards that can be visited to see these handmade yachts created. Way back when, the process was a lot simpler than it is today. With construction standards and architectural advancement, gulets are built to higher standards combining modern technology in the process. However that is not to say that the older ones are not any good. They can be. As these vessels are made from wood, they require a good upkeep. Therefore, generally each year, after the private gulet charter season has come to an end, during the winter season, gulets are taken into the marinas or shipyards where they go through a thorough refit and maintenance.
