We are often asked why we are apparently the busiest charter gulet in Bodrum, doing over twice as many weeks as most gulets, and why over 50% of our clients return repeatedly. We think some of the reasons are because:

  • We are perhaps the only privately owned gulet who look after our own sales- no agency fee and greater personal knowledge- we are not offering you a choice of 100 gulets, just one very special one!
  • Our business practices are western, your holiday experience entirely eastern
  • Our crew are beyond superb. Handpicked, every one.
  • We avoid surprises by including almost everything including food and wine. No HUGE bill for extras as you leave
  • We minimise your admin- you don't have to choose food and drink for every meal before you travel! Less stress, more relaxation.
  • We have taken our own holidays on Salamander for over 14 years. We know her intimately and what our guests expect of us.
  • We changeover on Mondays to suit UK flights & avoid the crowds in harbours and bays that weekend changeovers cause.

Give us a try, but please be quick, we are already more than 50% booked for 2016 (as at mid October 2015)!

Gulets Turkey - Salamander operates exclusive gulet charter from Bodrum (& occasionally Gocek by special arrangement) from late April until the end of October each year. Sailing Turkey has never been more fun! 

Salamander travels on the traditional charter Turkey routes but with a notable difference. Whether you have experienced a gulet sailing holiday before or not we hope you will find our approach especially attractive. You go where YOU want. By changing over on Mondays we avoid the crowds in harbour and in the bays and villages, we also suit most of the charter flight schedules.

Whether you want to visit ancient ruins, peaceful isolated bays, charming small rural villages or large bustling towns with entertainment and shopping opportunities or even the local Greek islands of Kos and Symi (additional charge incurred) you choose and we plan. All are highly accessible on sailing holidays Turkey.

Whatever your plan for a gulet charter, Turkey is the place to start and Bodrum gives you a great choice of alternative routes to travel.

Will it suit my family & friends???

We think so. Over 2500 guests so far have confirmed it! You absolutely do not have to be a boat enthusiast to enjoy our gulet. Sailing Turkey on a gulet is an experience for both boat lovers and non sailors alike. Whether or not you have previous experience of a charter yacht Turkey is a great place to go cruising.

Salamander is large enough for those who feel a little shaky on the water to feel entirely relaxed, but is still fun to sailwhen the wind arrives. She does not heel over significantly when under sail, removing the major fear element for non sailors. Such a stable platform means sea sickness should never be an issue for our guests. We can select itineraries with great shelter on request.

If you enjoy a mix of peace, pleasant company, quiet bays & sleepy villages, buzzing towns and continually changing scenery, this holiday is for you. It may well put you off beach holidays for life! 
It is the ultimate holiday for relaxation- you don't need to make any decisions, so the pressures of ordinary life are left far behind. Pure bliss!

Our custom gulet holidays-less expensive than you thought!

Yacht and gulet charter have the image of exclusivity and enormous cost. With us you get the exclusivity but not the cost. The cost of a week's charter for your party of 6 to 12 guests (we only charter to single groups) is comparable to a mid market beach holiday package, but infinitely more liberating. Your annual skiing holiday probably costs considerably more! 

Customer Reviews-see what our guests say!

Salamander gulet charter makes an unforgettable holiday experience. Relax or socialise- you choose! Many of our guests return again & again.
