Neither of us had any idea what a gulet was, until we joined Lilly Cooper and her family on the Carolina for a week off the coast of Turkey.

Still lost for words, we like to describe it as a 100ft luxury pirate ship, minus the canons. Specifically built for cruising the Mediterranean Coast, a holiday on one of these is one of the most luxurious experiences any Kiwi could ever dream of.

During our stay we literally didn't poor a single drink! Four crew were on board to look after everything, including a full time chef who presented a banquet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

When you feel a little fat you just dive overboard and burn off a few calories exploring the coast.

What makes this gulet stand out is how the Cooper family, from Christchurch came to own it and their adventure ahead, which you can be part of!
