The Boat

According to many, the boat has a soul. Kaptan Yilmaz, this is the name of the Gulet, among the most prestigious boats of its kind in Italy. The 8 cabins, the 26 meters in length and the 7 in wide, guarantee a good living for more than 16 passengers, plus the 4 crew members. The finishes, all in precious wood, offer an old-world charm to the board environments, in harmony with modern technologies for a more pleasant stay on board as air conditioning and television. For safety the autopilot, the GPS or system E.P.I.R.B. safety equipment is constantly connected to port authorities by satellite. The kitchen, backbone of the holiday, with smells and flavours of Sicily’s land, will leave you an aftertaste of melancholy soon dropped by board.
