The MS Seher1 has been crafted by wooden boat builders with a seafaring history that goes back to the Ottoman Empire; their craft passed down from father to son, generation to generation. Built with great strength, the bones of the boat were created from solid Oak and Baltic Pine, other woods like Mahogany and Teak used in the finish to create a beautiful vessel, perfectly designed for sailing in this part of the world.

Designed with comfort in mind, the MS Seher1 boasts space, inside and out. 6 double cabins, each with en suite shower, toilet and vanity. Beds are all double or queen. Cabins are located under the galley and don't face directly to the sun which keeps them cool, a great advantage in the hotter months.

The large, open kitchen on the upper deck is not common in the standard design of a gulet. Guests enjoy popping in through the day to watch the chef as he prepares the next Mediterranean feast. Anyone is welcome to join him at any time if they want to see how some of the special dishes are prepared.

Flexible itineraries, friendly staff and crew, exquisite food - the perfect conclusion to your Turkish itinerary or an ideal, relaxing getaway.
