Mr. Kadir Turhan built his first gulet in 1983 with the intention of starting up a small business in gulet chartering. Back then, this 16 meter vessel was one of the largest chartering gulets in Turkey. Back in those days and even now gulets were not known at all except by the few who had a familiarity with the vessels generally used by former sponge divers of the past.
Turhan Yachting is a family run business. Both father and son (Kadir Turhan and Galip Turhan), attend charters as Captain and manager. The crew of which consists of a captain, a chef, a host, a housekeeper, two deck personnel, an engineer and a manager are all selective professionals in their field.
