M/S TUFAN - GULET of the year 2013


The gullet M/S TUFAN 5 is one of the boats that really sail. Not only that this ship has been created by ship builders using traditional methods, but sea-men and artists have also added their ideas.
Once on board the M/S TUFAN 5 you will find yourself in an atmosphere of nostalgia which evokes the golden age of oldtimer sailing ships.

The M/S TUFAN 5 meets all the demands of its discerning clientele for a nostalgic and romantic cruise. At the same time she offers all the comforts you would expect to find on your holiday.
She has 5 cabins with wide, comfortable double beds. The cabin in the aft is a spacious master cabin. Your bath everywhere is large and comfortable with a real shower-cabin (all cabins have now closed shower cabins) and the toilets work using the flush system, just like the ones you use at home.
All cabins have
air conditioning which can be run for several hours daily during naps or when preparing to sleep for the night.

Your Itinerary: You may start your journey either in Bodrum, Marmaris or Gocek, we can plan and arrange it with you, depending where you wish to go
(map here) or according to your chosen airport, Bodrum or Dalaman, depending of course on bookings before or after.
We also offer to arrange and take care of your airport transfers,
sorry, but flights we do not arrange.

You will experience the sun of the Aegean, the sea breezes and the proverbial hospitality of the people. The coast of Turkey, with its deep inlets, wide gulfs and sheltered bays, and the nearby Greek islands, is a unique holiday region. The pleasant climate, crystal-clear water and the delightful, ever-changing scenery of the Eastern Mediterranean are waiting to welcome you.

The Captain knows each harbour and every cove on this beautiful coastline. The cruise will follow a route which will be discussed with everyone on board.

The Turkish cuisine, on board the M/S TUFAN 5 you will find the finest Turkish dishes, prepared using the freshest vegetables, fish and meats. Our cook is an expert in his field. He will pamper you with three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and a dinner. If you have any special dietary requirements (if there are certain foods you dislike or mustn't eat), simply let him know. He will be able to prepare dishes to suit your exact taste.


Captain and owner Kemal,
is a devoted spearfisher,
and loves
to support to the dinner


Your meals on board: Full board (3 meals + tea time) price 32,- € p/person per day
Soft Drinks and alcoholic drinks are extra, we can buy them at supermarket prices and you just pay us the bill plus a service-extra for the crew of only 10%: We think that's a fair offer and all previous guests did appreciate that very much.
Meals are mainly served on deck under the awning which protects you from the sun. In cooler months, our guests dine in the deck salon.

Her engaging skipper, Captain Kemal, happens to be a great fisherman; chances are that you will eat more often fresh fish right off his speargun. He is assisted by a very good chef and a smiling deckhand, usually his son Tufan. This excellent crew of three is happy to put up the sails whenever possible and will do everything to make your cruise unforgettable.

Let's be honest about air-condition on gullets
There is nearly none of the gullet charter-companies who tells you the truth about the use of air-condition on Gullets. Yes, yes M/S TUFAN 5 has AC and you think you can switch it on when you like. It's not! On a boat the AC can only run when the generator is on, or in a harbor when connected to 220 Volt. But mainly you are in anchor bays, often next to a neighbor who doesn't like the noise of your generator and you wouldn't like it either during the night for example.
So most of the gullets have come to a gentlemen's agreement not to disturb each other - AC can be used on the most of the boats 2-3 hours in the morning or at night from 20 to 24 hours.
