On our yachts, you will be traveling in a small group and thus it will be possible for us to take care of you and completely attend your wishes. We will pick you up at the airport and bring you on board. Once on the yacht, there is plenty of time to get informed and ”to arrive”. Your yoga practice will start on the following day as well as your experience of the first boat trip and of course of the famous Turkish joy of life and culture.

Enjoy a holiday for body, mind and soul – we are awaiting you!

What does a Gulet look like? Gulets are large wooden boats with comfort and service. You don’t have to be at sailor to be able to love these boats. When you are strolling along the piers in the harbor of Bodrum or Marmaris, you will see these beauties all around. In fact the honey colored wooden details are dazzling in the sunlight. Turkish Gulets, as these boats are called, are built from pine wood and other precious woods, and then varnished and polished. Their bowsprit is pointing to the sea, through the opening of the harbor, their masts rise high into the sky and on the rear deck the Turkish flag is flowing all red in the wind, with its crescent moon and star Jupiter. A broad gangway brings you from the pier to the rear deck, where comfortable chairs around a large, wooden dining table are inviting you to spend some time. If you want to see the interior of one of our boats, click into the figures in the picture above.

In the east of the Mediterranean, in Greece, Turkey as in the Lebanon it is the manifold of dishes that forms part of the culinary culture. Regardless of country the culinary concept is called “meze”. On our yachts you will always be served freshly prepared vegetable dishes for lunch. Most of the time the chef will combine these with some specialties for instance the famous Cigarra Börek (filled pastry sticks) or zucchini-fritters or other delights from the traditional cuisine.
In the evenings the chef will be happy to serve fish dishes if demanded.
All warm dishes are served together with a manifold of delicious, cold salads. The ingredients for these are celery, red beets, spinach, sea weed, tomatoes, cucumber, cauliflower, broccoli, common purslane and much more…. In addition the kitchen will serve warm dishes from the oven like stuffed aubergines, tomatoes, peppers, zucchinis and strudels – and many other specialties, served with bulgur or rice, tomato sauces, rice dishes, cooked or baked potatoes.
