Welcome on our Gulet “Elpis”

Our Gulet “Elpis” is a typical wooden motor sailer built in 2004 and entirely renovated in the 2017 season. With a length of 26 metres, a width of 7 metres and a draught of 3 metres our ship offers enough space for up to 12 guests. The cabins are divided into 2 master, 4 standard and 2 crew cabins.

Through our Gulet we would like to familiarize our guests with the connection to the Lycian coast and the history of this country. The name “Elpis” according to Greek mythology originates in the Box of Pandora. According to the myth, men were left with “elpis”, which is the root of the word “hope”. Our cabins are named after important Lycian cities.

The inside:

The bright, comfortable salon is divided into one big seating area, one bar and one open kitchen where you are welcome to have a peek at the delicacies our chef will be freshly preparing for you.

The outside:

There are two open lounging areas. One of them has awnings for when you want to relax in the shade and the other one invites you to lie down and enjoy the sun. At the front of the ship there is a so-called sundowner seating area, which guests like to use as a meeting spot for an idyllic “Blue Hour” or as a chillout area. There is also a BBQ where you can watch our chef prepare delicacies that will make your mouth water.

The rear of the ship is roofed and the sides can be covered with a tarp. In this area the outside bar, a big dining table and comfortable seating and lying areas invite you to a relaxed get-together.

As long as the weather conditions are favorable, we set sail.
