Our gulet elpis
Our very customizable cruise in intimate, relaxed atmosphere on our “Gulet Elpis”, a typical wooden motorized sailboat, is a cruise for the aficionado. Picturesque bays, the ocean in all its hues of blue, waves gently hitting the bow of the ship, the historical archeological sites of Lycia, sunken antique ruins, and pristine fishing villages remote from mass tourism. The fresh Mediterranean cuisine in all its variety, swimming, paddling, and snorkeling in lonely bays, time and tranquility to read or relax, celebrate with friends and have deep conversations. Enjoy the “blue hour” with a chilled beverage and conclude a perfect day with a mild summer night on deck beneath thousands of stars.
This one of a kind combination of the Mediterranean Sea, sun, culture and relaxation coupled with personal expert guidance of our Captain Ilyas and his crew make for a perfect rejuvenation of body and soul.
Our Gulet “Elpis” is a typical wooden motor sailer entirely renovated in the 2017 season. Through our Gulet we would like to familiarize our guests with the connection to the Lycian coast and the history of this country. The name “Elpis” according to Greek mythology originates in the Box of Pandora. According to the myth, men were left with “elpis”, which is the root of the word “hope”.
Home Harbour Kaş: Picturesquely the town of Kaş, the antique Antiphellos, caresses a bay on the Lycian peninsula. With the hills of the Akdag mountain range at its back and the green coast and turquoise sea to its sides, Kaş has retained its original charm remote from mass tourism. Lanes with Greek houses and small shops, a well-preserved amphitheater, impressive hillside tombs, and the innumerable cafés and tea houses let each and every visitor enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle.
The area stretching from Marmaris to Finike is the home of our crew. Captain Ilyas due to decades of experience knows every single bay, small islands unreachable from land, antique ruins and the picturesque villages along the shore.
