   "The nights of the Mediterranean are darker and deeper than the other nights. The stars are close enough to be held when the hand is stretched out."

The Fisherman of Halicarnassus [Author], 1945

 

    "On the Mediterranean, the sea that Homer calls violet or wine color, you will see the indigo blue where dark blue is mixed with purple."

Azra Erhat [Author, Archaeologist], 196​2

   In the spring of 1945, a letter came to Sabahattin Eyuboglu, the Director of the Translation Department, Department of World Classics at Ministry of National Education in Ankara. This historic letter is an invitation to the first Blue Journey.

TURKISH GULET: THE WOODEN MOTOR-SAILER YACHT DESIGNED FOR THE BLUE JOURNEY VACATION ON THE MEDITERRANEAN


The singular design of the Gulet, Turkey's indigenous sea-going vessel, blends practicality and tradition in a relaxed style that embodies the Blue Journey. Over the years Gulets have evolved from traditional fishing and cargo vessels into their present profile of a broad beam and wide deck. 

PRIVATE GROUPS

Constructed mainly in the shipyards of Bodrum, Bozburun, Marmaris and Istanbul, these boats are equipped with motors as well as fully functional rigging. The number of passengers a Gulet carries depends on the boat's size, although most of them accommodate between six and twelve people.

 

These vessels have separate accommodation for passengers, and chartering one will also include services and entertainment. Modern Gulets are comfortably equipped with most home comforts, and encourages a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for all the passengers with a friendly relationship with the crew.

Journey into Blue arranges charter vacations and fixed routes for private groups or individuals on an All-inclusive or Full-board or Yacht+Crew+Fuel Only basis. Unlike cruises on large ocean liners, a Gulet can explore the secluded and often deserted bays and coves of the coastline. The small harbors and settlements offer an intimate view of coastal life which large ships simply cannot. In many ways a Gulet is like a full-service hotel where every room has a sea view and the scenery changes constantly.
