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.
