She was known as Carmina and she was widely believed to be one of the largest and yet fastest gullet in Turkey. It was built in Bodrum in 2004 and it was right from the start intended to be a yacht for the stars. Right now, the gullet was bought by a yacht charter company in Marmaris which has renamed it Grande Mare and now it’s undergoing a schedule of refitting and cleaning which is set to end the following month. The new owners intend to make it their flagship and hope to attract a lot of the rich and famous jet set in Europe and maybe also Hollywood, since it has already housed famous actress Demi Moore on one of her holidays.
A gulet (sometimes spelled gullet) is an old type of a wooden sailing boat that has 2 masts and that has originally been present around the eastern Mediterranean, especially in yacht charter Turkey. In fact, today, gulets are particularly popular on Turkish shores and most tourists who come here will want to go on a gulet cruise.
