What exactly is the meaning of luxury gulet?

What does it mean to have a genuinely luxury gulet? Let’s have a look at the many types of gulets. In Turkey, a gulet is a sort of wooden watercraft. These boats are also passed down from generation to generation as a cultural legacy. Because the motifs are produced in a style that is unique to Turkey. In terms of gulet export and import, Turkey is a developed country.

When we talk to a luxury vacation or cruise in the Western world, we are usually referring to ‘luxury’ – high quality – high class – VIP or any other phrase denoting good quality. Gulets, on the other hand, are not like that. In gulets, the phrase “luxury” has an entirely distinct meaning and definition. Travelers unfamiliar with Turkish gulets are frequently unaware of this until they book a “luxury” gulet charter and are disappointed since their expectations were greater than what they believed was “luxury.”

So, let’s clear this up a bit. First, as I mentioned above, there are 5 classes or standards in Turkish gulet charters. The lowest quality and highest standards are as follows:

  • Economic/Standard
  • Luxury
  • Deluxe
  • Ultra or High Deluxe
  • VIP

While the destinations have no bearing on the voyage, the diversity of the boats does, as the locations are frequently the same. As can be seen, the ‘luxury’ class follows Economy/Standard and precedes Deluxe. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s talk about what you receive when you charter a luxury gulet. First and foremost, each accommodation is equipped with air conditioning and an en-suite bathroom. Most of the luxury gulets are older models. Gulets are generally smaller than the most common 6 and 8 cabin Turkish boats, and there aren’t many fresh new boats on the market.

A gulet is a handmade Turkish ship. A gulet is unlike any other boat or yacht, and it also offers an alluring lifestyle, one that you’ve always wanted but never knew how to achieve! Some people have never heard of a gulet, while others can’t get enough of this charming and authentic boat. It has a unique aroma that transports you to a different time in your life. It makes you feel like a modern Mediterranean pirate, not a Caribbean pirate! Gulets are available in every category. From the most basic to the most luxurious. The higher the price, the better the quality, as is always the case. Your itinerary will remain the same regardless of the quality you pick, but as the price rises, so will the service and standards.
