Location: Pontevedra, Spain Interesting pages and wooden construction technique. Frosty Previous Member   I always thought that 'Naga pelangi was built in Trengganu.
She was sold on to another Englishman and is now a charter vessel , I see her around occasionaly.
Although her scuppers were always awash she would go so far and no further, After a while one became quite confident in her capabilities. They say that the bark caulking will last the entire life of the boat, being over a hundred years. Price-wise and practically, would this sort of construction be suited to some more modern designs, and even the addition of some modern materials in parts (epoxy, carbon etc)? Ie, could the average person consider this sort of construction for something like a family round-the-worlder. Not that I am in the position to do so now or at any time in the near future, but I have for a long time thought about getting a boat such as this (but a bit smaller) built from traditional woods and construction techniques, with a sprinkling of modern materials and parts.
Location: Port Dickson, Malaysia Wooden boat construction photo Have a look at this link. When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. More frames are in place and we can see the ship emerging.  Notice the tiny potted tree on top. Cabrillo, with three ships, sailed to chart the coast of California and it’s riches for Spain. A blacksmith works at the construction site to make some of the metal pieces needed for construction. I did a post in July 14, 2011, and another one January 6, 2012, on the replica.  Check there for earlier photos. More wooden sailing vessels were built in Maine in the 19th century than in any other state.
Our company extensive experience in boat building; we have the necessary facilities, equipment and skilled personnel.
Most vessels are now built in Bodrum, Bozburun, Istanbul and on the Black Sea coast of Turkey. The number of passengers the gulette can carry depends on the accommodations but usually the figure is between eight and sixteen.
There are basically three types available of Gulet in Turkey, the standard Gulet, the Ayna Ketch and the Tirhandil.
For the prospective buyer of a Gulet all that is really needed, is to know the basic difference between the three types and the advantages and disadvantages of each depending on its intended primary function. The standard Gulet is similarly shaped to the Tirhandil with a rounded and undercut stern,but usually larger.
Despite generally being the superior sailing vessel of the three, have less aft deck space for Blue Cruise voyages, they are not as frequently commissioned by local builders and thus remain elusive. Tirhandils are workhorses of the Mediterranean last 2 thousand years and is similar to its cousin, the caique, and the Greek transport vessel called perama. This is the ultimate in Charter Gulet development, a compromise between a sailing Gulet and functionality as a spacious charter boat.


After small beginnings and many years of in-depth experience of the fundamentals of what makes a good yacht, the charter version of Valena Yachting was born. The hull is keenly shaped by loving eyes as the architect and engineer work closely together, giving birth to the latest hull to be launched in August 2006.
Logs of African mahogany are carefully selected and the cut to start the final drying process.
The very latest technology and skills are linked with old fashioned craftsmanship, producing fine vessels. Beautiful interiors with exceptional finish setting high standards which are followed through to the standard of charter and onboard service. The traditional wooden Gulette built on the Southern Coast of Turkey has developed from the original working vessel into the very popular pleasure yacht. Originally built of pine, wider availability of other timber has meant that these boats are now made out of teak and mahogany as well as varying qualities of different kinds of pine. The modern Gulette is a luxuriously designed yacht with every comfort taken care of and as they are purposely built for the charter boating industry the level of accommodation now resembles that of a five star hotel.
Here at Yasemin Yachting we specialize in building custom designed Gulettes to meet your specific requirements. Whilst we specialize in building traditional Turkish Gulettes we also have designers excited about using new materials and modern finishes to create more unusual interiors.
There are a variety of modern spellings for the Traditional Turkish Wooden Yacht, whatever the spelling this classic wooden boat is a modern success. Strangley her rigging to windward never seemed to be stressed,-- yet with engine just running would quite easily achieve 6kts. A very astute somebody put Goya’s The Forge on the sign in front of the area where he works.
Beginning in the early 17th century, shipsShipA vessel with three masts, all square-rigged. We have experience in constructing almost any kind of boat, cruising yachts, of metal and wood. They were used for fishing and carrying cargo consisting mainly of amphoras filled with olive oil and wine.
As a matter of fact the boats built in Bodrum and Bozburun are so popular that they are referred to as "Bodrum-Type yachts" or "Gulettes".
It is still built of wood which gives off the ambience that only wood can give, but modern technology provides the comfort and the safety. All three types are essentially motor sailing yachts, raising their sails when the wind conditions are most suitable. The increase in dimensions, the addition of a mast or two and subtle modifications to the hull make more room for forward and central cabins, and of course make it more suitable for chartering. Yet it is the tirhandil, more so than the gulet, which carries the most traditional elements of Aegean sailing boats of the last two millennium. More suited to motor cruising than sailing, though its design still allows some sailing opportunities in favorable wind conditions. Craftsmen are gathered to cut and assemble 1000's of cubic feet and raw wood and using traditional methods cross planked glued together to produce another true classic and a work of art. Her super sister ship 'Hic Salta' will be 40m and include 5 guest cabins, deck jacuzzi and separate crew quarters.


The pointed front of the boat and the wide rounded aft allows it to cut through the water with ease and comfort. The basic exterior design of these classic wooden yachts has not changed much since there first appearance in Turkey. These wooden yachts are perfect for the weather conditions in the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. We have a team of professionals experienced and capable of advising you in choosing a design to meet your every need and suggesting additional advantages, perhaps not obvious to the less knowledgeable designer.
Boat building is actually not the main reason that some of our tropical hardwood species driven to near extinction.
It is a three masted galleon, scholar’s best guess about the kind of ship Cabrillo sailed.
They sailed north from Guatemala in 1542 up the coast of Mexico and into what is now the port of San Diego.  They then sailed farther north to the Channel Islands where, unfortunately,  Cabrillo died of an injury on the island the Spaniards called Isla de la Posesion.
Fortunately, both the displays at Spanish Landing and Cabrillo National Monument acknowledge the Kumeyaay Indians who lived here long before the Spanish claimed the land.
Over the years the gulette has evolved into its present shape of a broad beam and a wide deck.
The size of the boat and the number of passengers is conducive to a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere amplified with the friendly attentions of the crew. The squared off and deepened stern allows for the inclusion of cabins below a raised rear deck, ideal for outdoor dining.
Quality of that wood seems excellent but the specie seems to be in danger of extinction; and for a tree that takes 75 years to attain 64 cm diameter, all cares have to be taken to preserve it. She became British registered and we sailed her back to Malaysia in some pretty rough weather I seem to remember.
Some boats are powered by sail, some by motor, and some by paddles or oars.Read more were built along Maine’s coast.
We take photos of different stages in the building of a boat to show the customer, and we are of course ready to answer any question pertaining to the construction. It was also used as a fighting ship, and extensive exploration and trading voyages were made with the gulette.
The beam cross section is also deepened to eliminate as much as possible the inward slope of the hull in the cabins. They have been built in different parts of Europe, mainly in the Mediterranean region of Greece and Turkey. Thanks to the close relationships between shipmasters and shipbuilders, Maine builders developed expertise in design and construction resulting in the building of Maine’s characteristic large vessels: square-riggedSquare-riggedThe arrangement of sails in a vessel where the main driving sails are laced to yards lying square to the mast. They are set on stays, gaffs, booms, etc., and are generally triangular or trapezoidal in shape.
