Turkish Gulet

Hello,

Being in the dreaming stage of my nautical career, I hope you won't find my question annoying.
Some of the wooden motorsailers built in Turkey are very asthetically pleasing.
How does one tell if they are an all around seaworthy, passage making vessel?

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Saw lots of them when we went voyaging with Sunsail. Never with a sail up. I think they are motorsailers with the emphasis on motor. Those that charter them rave about the food. (Turks claim they taught the Greeks how to cook). Guess if I were to have one built, I would spec a Lugger or John Deere in anticipation of mostly cruising under power.

Over here in Europe they are always tempting.However they tend to be mass produced all be it in wood for the Turkish Charter Market.As such some tend to be nailed together out of the cheapest softwood available and as such have a short life span.There are always large numbers for sale so buyer beware.

Just a general comment-some of the best yacht prices in N.America/Europe appear to be in west USA-said elsewhere that for the UK price of my 34 footer I could get an extra 10 feet in California.
