East Meets West is our 8 cabin handcrafted gulet which we use for the majority of our specialist, small group cruises.
With 4 twin and 4 double cabins for charter it is suitable for most groups of families and friends.
East Meets West is available for private charter for your own private party
You'd be surprised by how many different types of people charter a gulet.
Our skill is in creating an itinerary which fits your group perfectly.
Families - The school summer holidays are a great time for families who often bring grand-parents, cousins, aunts and uncles with 2 or 3 families sharing the boat together. This is a great holiday for children whose enthusiasm for jumping into the sea is non-stop.
Walkers - We've created a very special hiking holiday in the Spring and Autumn. People from local walking groups book the boat together and often bring non-walking partners who stay on the boat and enjoy all the holiday has to offer.
Singers - We were lucky enough to be joined by Choir Leader Roz Walker and members of her choir. Singing in small quiet bays, the ruins of a Roman amphitheatre, an abandonded Christian Church and of course on deck.
Painters - the incredible views and colours of the sea and pine clad mountains are waiting to be captured on canvas. Painters who are considered to be amongst Australia's top artists had a wonderfully creative week and will follow the holiday with several Exhibitions showing their Turkish work.
Photographers - the morning light and sunsets make for some stunning photography. A great place to improve your photography skills - combine it with some gentle walking to get the most from this trip.
Girlie Groups - absolute relaxation for groups of friends who charter a gulet for this private trip with our Turkish female massage therapist
