Gulet Cruise holidays with thought, surprise and charm
The Mediterranean and Aegean Seas are impossibly blue. So blue, that a boating trip here is named a blue voyage or blue cruise.

We ensure your every need is well served – with thought, surprise and charm.

Sailing Chef in two minutes
"The most caring, friendly, hospitable and fun team that shows you the best of their beautiful surroundings.
A go with the flow-trip, always looking for beautiful spots, knowing when and where to stop for a swim and when you're not paying attention Captain Müjdat and Chef Çaner will even catch fresh fish for dinner.
Examples are endless. This team loves what they do and whom they do it for. A holiday spent on their yacht is worth every single cent and each minute is a wonderful one!
I will definitely join them again!"

"A magical vacation and a top team. I can't wait to join again"
Each guest - value for money
Sailing Chef is all about people. No matter how beautiful the scenery or how great the cuisine, without a crew that cares for its guest as it were family, your experience would be average at best.
Highest guest loyalty
Our goal is to create a valuable and lifelong memory for each of our guests. We do this with a genuine interest in you and an eye for detail. We are thankful that each year many of our guests return to sail with our Sailing Chef Caner and our Captain Mujdat.
Why? Simply because they haven't experienced the same level of positive attention, interest, and hospitality anywhere else.
Our crew is always close when required, but keeps a distance when desired. You won't even notice.
Sailing Chef takes your blue cruise experience to the next level through our team, gourmet cuisine and the ultimate experience of freedom.
We thank our name to our Sailing Chef, who was born and raised in the area and creates magical dishes from fresh and responsibly farmed local ingredients. Every day.
Freshly caught lobster
Each day of your cruise promises to be a culinary journey. There's no set menu. Depending on the best ingredients available, our chef finds inspiration to serve you with unique creations.
We have experienced free divers among our crew who go diving on a regular basis to find you the best and freshest fish. During the April to June period, a giant lobster is no exception.
Taking the rich tradition of gulet cruises to the next level means finding a balance between the unique experience of such a journey and understanding what is essential for you.
You can count on us to find you breathtaking bays, cosy harbours and the best sailing waters. Each day, your captain shares his sailing plans and incorporates your preferences. It is your Blue Voyage!
The blue cruise life your way
Everything is possible, and throughout your journey, you will enjoy the sensation of ultimate freedom.
While sailing the turquoise waters, you enjoy breathtaking views. So, lay back, unwind and relax on our sun deck.
Once arrived at your next bay, you can take a swim, go snorkelling, arrange a scuba dive or spot sea turtles. It is up to you!
We are a Dutch, Irish and Turkish company that offers boutique-style gulet cruises with love for our guests and an eye for detail.
Our chef, captain, and crew were born and raised on the Datça peninsula. The rest of the team fell in love with the breathtaking landscape, hospitable locals and the unforgettable blue voyage experience.
Together we aim to bring the blue cruise life to the next level at a fair price.
Our dream to share our experiences with you came true when we established "Sailing Chef". We strive to provide each guest with a unique, and unforgettable holiday by providing
culinary magic and
a Lifelong Memory. Guaranteed.
