Jenny Day, Founder of Day Dreams Travel LtdJenny Day started DayDreams in 1987 following a 5-day/5 star corporate weekend to Istanbul for 100 clients from her London based PR consultancy. Wearing her PR hat, she lead many journalists to Turkey in the late 80's on gulet holidays. Intent on sharing the experience with friends, she returned several times organising her own private charters on the first Cevri Hasan.   Using the organisational skills that came second nature to her as a professional public relations consultant, she put together several boat parties. They were so successful that friends told their friends and the word spread. Her dream of offering a style of holiday, once the preserve of the rich and famous, to a wider audience had become a reality and DayDreams had become a thriving business.

The Mediterranean and Aegean coastlines are ideal for gulet cruising and sailing. Still unspoilt, providing many magical moments for that chance encounter with dolphins or a loggerhead turtle, whether you are exploring the Turkish coastline or Dodecanese islands, you can guarantee an unforgettable holiday.

DayDreams has worked with the owner/captains of all the Cevri Hasans since 1987. Today there are three available for chartering, Cevri Hasan III, IV and V, in addition to the myriad choice of additional boats available for exclusive private charters. The list now includes many luxury and superior deluxe gulets. A tailor-made service is also available to enable travellers to combine an Istanbul city break, hotel stay or land tour with a charter.

The idea of bringing together small groups of individuals and couples into gulet parties, enabling single travellers in particular to experience life on board a privately chartered gulet continues to be an important feature of the business. Cabins can be booked on these holidays on board the Cevri Hasan III under the Travel Club programme.   A tour leader/hostess travels with each party.  Our in-depth knowledge of the coastline does mean we can still find places off the beaten track to explore, from wild remote anchorages to interesting small villages.  There are also a number of land based small group tours to places such as Istanbul and the recently introduced walking holidays.

As experts in Turkey and Turkish gulets and schooners, Jenny and her team can advise clients about every aspect of their holiday with the aim of providing people with a holiday to suit them. We are a safe pair of hands to make your holiday a memorable experience.

"We have enjoyed a wonderful relaxing holiday on Cevri Hasan III with Mustafa and the 'boys' - can't believe it's 30 years since we first met Jenny on a gulet holiday before the birth of DayDreams.  It just gets better each time."  Mike & Carolyn Freeman cruised with the Travel Club around the Dodecanese islands, June 2017.

“Jenny, we had a wonderful holiday ! All said it was the best, a few tears from some when it came to an end. Even the 18 month old was running around at the end without any fear. Captain Taner was great in getting the younger ones to water ski. I cannot fault anything and that includes all you did at your end, thank you” Mr Charles Aldous from England travelled on the Cevri Hasan V with his extended family in July 2013.

"The trip has been exceptional in every respect. Captain Mustafa is as expected, wonderful. The crew perfect. The cook more so. The wine divine, in a nutshell, we're golden!! “ Cheers" Ron Burns & family from USA travelled on Cevri Hasan III in May 2013
