CHARTER A PRIVATE BOAT
Turkish Gulets & Schooners

DayDreams sources its collection of beautiful wood built gulets and schooners from Bodrum in south west Turkey, one of the most important Turkish towns with a tradition of boat building. (Bodrum was also the birthplace of Herodotus and the site of one of the seven wonders of the ancient world - the tomb of King Mausolus.) The boats are built in a mixture of woods (pine, teak and mahogany) in a variety of sizes and standards, retaining many of the traditional features from the past but always incorporating modern amenities and comfortable deck areas. They are all maintained to a very high standard.
A week or two aboard one of these romantic vessels, waited on hand and foot, is the perfect holiday for any group of people, whether a small family on a limited budget, or a larger group wanting to sail or cruise in style. Most boats have spacious cabins, with en-suite shower rooms including flush toilets and an air conditioning system. All our boats are fitted with the new obligatory AIS central tracking system.
The Cevri Hasans, are operated exclusively by DayDreams as part of our fleet of 24 standard and luxury boats. Each boat is supplied with a variety of water sports equipment. A professional, but relaxed informal atmosphere prevails with a captain and crew to run the boat and cater to your needs.
"We had the most wonderful trip aboard the Cevri Hasan IV. Captain Yusuf and his crew could not have looked after us better; we had fabulous food, wonderful wines and just loved all the places we visited. A great family holiday. Thank you so much."
Mrs Serena Blackburn from England
"After ten years of chartering Cevri Hasan V, itís now like a second home to us and the pleasure never dims. The welcome we receive, the crew, the service and the food are second to none and we cannot recommend it too highly"
Susan and Michael Hindmarch from England September 2012
Your captain will steer a course to suit you. Jenny Day, owner of the company, has over 25 years experience of travelling the coastline and can help plan your route in advance.
Boat rentals start at 3850 GB pounds per week for a basic, standard boat, in May, rising to 33000 GB pounds for a super deluxe gulet in August.
Delicious Turkish food is prepared by the cook or chef and all meals are eaten 'al fresco' on deck, except in early and late season, when you might prefer to use the comfortable saloon. We don't operate a boat bar system. We liaise with you over your drinks and stock the boat in advance of your arrival.
You then pay at cost when you arrive on board.
The Cevri Hasan Captains
"Seven years of Turkish delight on Cevri Hasan III. Each year has been utterly marvellous - the masterful talents of Captain Mustafa and his wonderful crew and, as always, great cuisine. When Captain Mustafa asks us each day where we want to go, we don't really care as we know he will look after us and wherever we go will be beautiful. We just adore the time on board. Five stars all the way."
Jim Dunn and friends travelled on Cevri Hasan III
