A gulet cruise is undoubtedly the best way of exploring the stunning coastline and we would suggest none finer than one taken aboard Fairlight Jones’ luxurious gulet, Seyhan Hanna.

When we considered our Gulet offering, there was really only one choice to make - the exceptional Seyhan Hanna.  At 39 metres long, she is far larger than a standard Gulet, and is configured for luxurious sailing, having just 6 cabins, all with seating areas and ensuite bathrooms. 

The cabins are far larger than might be expected, ranging from 20 to 31 square metres.  Facilities onboard are excellent, with WiFi, 'silent' air conditioning, exceptional food and a wide selection of wines. The length and configuration means there is plenty of space to relax and unwind as Seyhan Hanna meanders between bays and coves along the exquisite Lycian Coast.

Life onboard is relaxed and informal, with the professional crew taking care of everything. In the morning you select your meals for the day to be prepared by the chef, and then the day is yours to enjoy. Whether you simply wish to watch the world go by or fancy a cooling swim in a quiet cove, it's up to you. For the more active, however, there is windsurfing, sea-kayaking, sup boarding, fishing, snorkelling and water-skiing, plus visits to local villages, markets and historical sites on route.  Meals are taken outside under the canopy, with dinner under the stars in the evening -  the Gulet illuminated by strings of lights.

Seyhan Hanna spends some time under sail, and you are very welcome to try your hand at the helm - an experience not to be missed for those who love to sail!

An ideal experience for a party of friends or families sharing to celebrate a special birthday or simply enjoy a luxurious escape to sea.

Food and Wine - a full board  à la carte service

With plenty of fresh sea air we expect you to have a good appetite throughout your cruise. Food onboard is of high quality and plentiful, with the chance to try new flavours as well as your favourite dishes. All meals are cooked from scratch and the emphasis is on fresh and seasonal fare. 

The day starts with a traditional Turkish breakfast which is accompanied by juice, eggs, yoghurt and cereals. Lunch is a selection of appetising mezzes accompanied by salads, chicken or meat and fresh fruit, and afternoon tea features a freshly baked cake as well as tea and biscuits. Guests are asked each morning to select an evening meal which consists of a dish made either of fish, chicken, red meat or a vegetarian option. The three course evening meal begins with a selection of mezzes followed by a main course. The meal is then concluded with a dessert or fresh fruit served with tea and coffee.

You may of course dine ashore if you wish - the Captain can easily arrange this for you.

Inclusive Bar

Your cruise includes all water, soft drinks, local wines, beers and imported spirits. An upgraded drinks service is available for a supplement should you prefer imported or Turkish fine wines.

Notes: If you have any special dietary requirements please inform us before travelling so that we can stock the galley accordingly.  
Upgraded Bar Service: Turkish fine wines - £70 per adult, Turkish fine and imported New World wines - £100
Upgrade rates must be applicable to all those in a party 16 years and above
Prices are displayed per guest per week and can only be booked and paid for prior to departure.




Water Sports

Life onboard is gentle and relaxed – meandering between bays and stopping for a refreshing swim - but we do appreciate that some guests will feel the need to get active.  Seyhan Hanna has plenty of options with a large selection of water sports provided with our compliments. These include:
  • Two windsurfers

    Three sea kayaks

    Two SUPs (stand up paddle boards)

    Fishing & snorkelling equipment (we recommend you also bring your own)

    Tender with 90hp Outboard - Waterskiing & Ringos

    Unusually for Turkish Gulets, Seyhan Hanna also has a tender with an outboard motor powerful enough to offer waterskiing and Ringos. Skis for adults and children are available. 

  • Please Note: 70 minutes of activity per week is included in each cruise and can be accumulated throughout the week and signed for at the time. Thereafter, a charge of £20 for 10-15 minutes is applicable to cover fuel and service (payable locally). Our complimentary 70 minutes of watersports is only provided on private gulet charters. When the boat is made open to individual cabin sales the rate of £20 for 10-15 minutes is applicable throughout the week. This is a subsidised rate, lower than local water sport rates.

    There will be additional opportunities to practice water sports throughout the week with the potential to stop-off at various water sport schools for other activities along the way.


The Fairlight Jones' crew is an experienced, hand-picked team who know to be attentive yet discreet throughout your cruise.  We know the crew will be the making of your holiday and our aim is that you will want for little during your time onboard.

Gulet Service Manager

On boarding your gulet you will be met by Fairlight Jones’ experienced Manager – Vicky, who will welcome you onboard and introduce the captain and crew as well as agree your itinerary and any particular requirements.  Unless you prefer otherwise, she will stay onboard for the first evening and once you have learned the ropes, will disembark on Sunday afternoon leaving you to enjoy the cruise in the capable hands of the gulet captain and crew.
