What is a Gulet
The Gulet, classic Turkish boat, is a traditional wooden motor sailor powered mainly by engine. It's the heir of those ancient fishing boats that sailed across the Aegean Sea hundreds of years ago. Today the purpose of sailing this wonderful Gulet had been changed by transforming it to a mini floating hotel, the famous Blue Cruise, that serves the most delicious cuisine to its guests and will offer them the best hospitality experience by its crew. Every Gulet cruise has an insurance cover and safety equipment such as life jackets, life rafts and emergency kits, according to the standard safety regulations of its country. They are also subject to periodic inspections by relevant authorities to ensure safety and comfort of the guests onboard.
