Turkish Gulet

Style at sea on a traditional Turkish yacht

We think getting married on your own private gulet, moored in turquoise waters, is one of the most magical experiences ever and many of our couples agree. The captain and crew welcome everyone aboard in Fethiye’s picturesque harbour and the ceremony takes place in a secluded bay followed by a light lunch. There is then time for a swim and relaxation before cruising into the sunset. Finally, under a star filled sky, there’s a sumptuous gourmet barbecue and of course, music. The final romantic touch is a night cruise back to the marina from where everyone will be returned to their hotels. Alternatively, for no extra cost, wedding parties can choose to spend the night on the gulet and wake to a delicious breakfast on the way back to Fethiye.
