With my skipper Dan I work on our little ship ORKUN - SWELL I You can get an impression of the tendency of our ship here: Moments on the ORKUN - SWELL I
On a Gulet can stay overnight up to 12 persons. In roomy 6 double cabs with own bath & toilet you can recover yourself from the stress. If you are ever at the Cote d'Azur and want to join us, send us a message.
A Gulet is a sailsboat usually made from wood. Gulets were built since the Antique in Karien (particularly in Bodrum and Marmaris) and were over thousands of years the type of ships for the trader from the Amphora, who carried olives, wine and many other precious goods along the Turkish coasts. The wooden building ships are admired for the warmth and great atmosphere compared with the common plastic boats.
As I also do a videoblog about good food and wine, you are welcome to join my group Charlottenburg Cuisine at GREAT COOKS.
We made a episode on our ship. As we think good food and wine is part of great sailing expiriences:
The appetizer is tagliatelle putanesca. As a main course we serve cod filets provencale style and for dessert we serve baked pears in a rosé-honey sauce. Enjoy!

"Chris, the 43 is a great boat and I'm sure you'll enjoy it should you finalize the purchase. As you took notice of the sump below the engine does not drain to the bilge. My understanding is that it's designed that way so as to prevent…"
"The boat has two bilge pumps, one electric and one manual. On my 40, I replaced the original pump with a Rule 2000 and a check valve. The original pump would always lose its prime. The engine bilge does not drain into the main bilge in case of an…"
I'm brand new to this group and almost a new owner of a 2008 Beneteau 43. I have spent time reading nearly every discussion and post in this group in preparation for making the offer and understanding the boat. It is clear that this group is extremely knowledgeable and willing to help. I hope I don't overstay my welcome with questions...Here is my first one and it came up during the pre-purchase survey. The boat had antifreeze (winterization/pink) in the bilge beneath the engine and then it…See More
