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. Sailing Chef takes blue cruising to the next level by refining each element, providing you with a unique experience and lifelong memory.

We treat you on an unforgettable, boutique scale sailing cruise along the breathtaking Turkish Riviera and Greek Islands on an iconic wooden yacht named a gulet.

Enjoy spectacular scenery, culinary extravaganza, private bays and unlimited water fun while being treated as a VIP.

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

"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!"

Casual atmosphere with magic cuisine

The atmosphere is casual, the dining magic, and the scenery breathtaking.


Your private chef creates the most delicate local and international dishes prepared from the freshest ingredients throughout your cruise. Some days, our freediving crew goes out catching the best local fish. Quality you won't find in a restaurant then cooked to perfection. 

Adults, teenagers, and children enjoy their dream holiday in an ambiance that invites them to be laid-back. From April until well into November, the micro-climate ensures perfect temperatures in and out of the water. 


All you need to do is step on board and settle into the blue cruise life.

Symi Island - Greece

At Sailing Chef, all-inclusive means that your border crossings between Greece and Turkey are included. During your cruise, we'll take you on an overnight trip to one of the most picturesque islands imaginable, Symi Island in Greece

You know you’ve arrived at a special island when you reach Symi, the jewel of the Dodecanese. Yialos, the main harbor area, with its ever-present neoclassical architecture and myriad of pastel hues, has been touted as one of Greece’s most beautiful. A bold claim that’s hard to refute once you’ve seen it in person.

Symi, in the Dodecanese, ranks as the perfect destination for those seeking a style that combines cosmopolitan flavor with old-world glamour. It’s an island rich with history and culture where you’ll be welcomed by the imposing homes of this multicolored, listed neoclassical settlement. In its tavernas and restaurants, you’ll sample the famous Symi shrimps.

Sailing Chef is all about our guests. No matter how stunning the scenery or great the cuisine, without a crew that cares for its guests as if they were family, your experience would at best be average. We don't do average - we seek to be nothing less than extraordinary.


Our team is always close when needed, but keeps its distance when desired. You won't even notice.

Loyal guests

Our goal is to create a lifelong memory for each of our guests. We do this with a genuine interest in you and an eye for detail. Many of our guests return year after year, simply because they haven't experienced the same level of positive attention and genuine hospitality anywhere else.


Sailing Chef takes your blue cruise experience to the next level through our team, gourmet cuisine and the ultimate sensation of freedom.

Your Sailing Chef, born and raised in the area creates magical dishes from fresh and responsibly farmed local ingredients.

Freshly caught lobster

Each day of your cruise promises to be a culinary extravaganza. There's no set menu. Depending on the finest ingredients available, our chef finds inspiration to serve you with unique creations. 

We have experienced freedivers who go out diving regularly 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 to 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.

The blue cruise life

Everything is possible, and throughout your sailing itinerary, you will enjoy the sensation of ultimate freedom, while being treated like a VIP.


While sailing the turquoise waters, you enjoy breathtaking views. So, lay back, unwind and relax on our sun deck.

Once you arrive at the next specially selected location, you can take a swim, go snorkelling, arrange a scuba dive or spot sea turtles. It is totally up to you. 


We are a Dutch, Irish and Turkish company offering boutique sailing 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, population and the blue voyage experience.

As a team, 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 to life when we created "Sailing Chef". We strive to provide each guest with a unique, and unforgettable holiday by providing:

  • genuine hospitality,

  • culinary magic,

  • breathtaking scenery,

  • unlimited water fun and

  • total relaxation

a Lifelong Memory. Guaranteed.
