If you decide a skippered boat is not enough or that the plastic vessels simply kill the romance of cruising, then there is a perfect solution, a gulet - traditional cruisers in various sizes and different luxury levels.

A gulet is a spacey, fully crewed motor sailor. The boats are equipped with generators, AC, various entertainment items, professional kitchen and large dining area, spacious bedrooms and so on. Basically, you get a luxury yacht in the traditional Mediterranean style.
