Gulets are really good boats and a good gulet (not the ones charter) can easily pass the oceans. If anybody is interested to buy one I ill tryt to help. Some new gulets are manufactured from steel and they are exported to different parts of the world.

I'm in love with these vessels but keen to find out anything i can about them being any good in ocean crossings. I plan to sail round the world and the ultimate dream would be to do it in one of these rather than a production vessel.

Has anyone managed to find out any further information?

Re: Gulet

I was wondering if anyone out there has any more information on the seaworthyness of these gulets for ocean cruising. Are they self righting? How fast do they sail? How high do they point? Are they really motor boats with sails for aesthetics?

There seems to be very little information about these boats despite there being hundreds of them for sale?

I would appreciate your thoughts

Cheers

Re: Gulet

A properly rigged gulet be able to tack 110-120 degrees. The worst tacks 140-150 degrees. They are originally sailboats of the Mediterranean and motorized later. A proper gulet is seaworthy to pass the ocean.
