Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning gulet charters along the Turkish coast and among Greek Aegean islands may be obtained by clicking on the gray links opposite the photographs and immediately above. Thank You. This page features a selection of motor-sailing gulets which may be chartered to cruise the Turkish coast and among Greek Aegean islands. Other gulets may be examined by clicking on the "Turn to Additional Gulets" link immediately above. These gulets are on crewed yacht charter in Turkey. These gulets are also on crewed yacht charter in Greece. That is, Turkish-flag and other foreign-flag gulets are on crewed yacht charter in both Turkey and Greece. A few Greek-flag caiques are also on charter in Greece. Crewed charter gulets, frequently termed "traditional gulets," are sailing the Turkish coast and among Greek Aegean islands at least six months each year. When reading the term "traditional gulet" or the like, you may wonder just what that means. It is meaningless. Gulets are and have been built over the past fifty years for charter holidays, and that is and has historically been their singular function. The only thing traditional about gulets is that construction begins with keel and frames to which a shell of planking is attached. This method of constructing wooden vessels has been the norm in the Near East since about the first century AD, and contrasts with the shell-first method of earlier trireme construction. Crewed gulets are ideal platforms for family holidays and for group holidays as there are usually at least four guest cabins and often eight or more guest cabins, all having en-suite water closets. Smaller gulets with two or three guest cabins, usually termed tirhandils because of their double-ended design, are appropriate for honeymoons. Crewed gulets go cruising in Greece and Turkey, in Greece among both Dodecanese Islands and among Aegean Cyclades, in Turkey along the southwest Coast between Kusadasi and Antalya. Most Greek island cruises begin and end at clearing ports in Rhodes, Kos, Patmos, Samos, Kalymnos, and Simi (Symi). Most Turkish coast charters begin at either Bodrum or Gocek and end at the other. Gulet cruises in Turkey and Greece can be an excellent introduction to history as this part of the world is the crossroads of history and as gulets are able to move along these crossed roads at good speed, pausing for inspection of visual splendors along the way. Asia Minor and its offshore islands are the realm not merely of empires but of civilizations. Here may be found evidence of Mycenaean and Minoan peoples, and of the Carians who preceded both. Here may be found the empires of the Hittites and Phrygians, of Croesus's Lydians and of Xerxes's Persians, of Alexander's Macedonians and of Cleopatra's Egyptians, of Octavian's Romans and of Constantine's Eastern Romans, of Seljuks and Ottomans, all bordering a sea on which triremes and galleys bustled and battled for more than two millennia before ushering in the age of sail. Blue Cruise Yacht Charters is able to customize itineraries to any group's preference.
