Boats

The boats called Akos and Freedom gulets are the names of the boats that were built in Turkey in 1988 and 1997 respectively.
The gulet is a two-masted boat of Turkish origin, initially used for fishing and loading and then transformed into a cruise boat due to its large size and the comfort it offers. Its width, considerably larger than that of a sailing boat, guarantees a large amount of space and is perfectly suited to the possibility of hosting and being inhabited.
The Akos gulet is equipped with six double cabins with bathroom, the captain’s cabin, a kitchen, two storage cabins, and is equipped with all the necessary equipment for navigation.
The Freedom gulet is equipped with ten cabins, crew cabin and office, two lounges and command area. It will be offered the opportunity to stay overnight and have breakfast on board, wrapped in the atmosphere that only the boat can offer, admiring the colors and views of the lagoon and its beauty.
Gulets are used all year round at the dock of SantʼElena, which is just a few minutes from the gardens and pavilions of the Biennale.
On foot or by vaporetto you can reach all corners of Venice, enjoy the city and then return to the comfortable cabins or relax in the living areas. In addition to the possibility of “Boat&Breakfast”, the Turkish gulet can be used as a cruise boat or charter along the beautiful coasts of Croatia and Greece, offering the customer an unforgettable period of sea. The boat, during its most recent history, has also been used as a location for private events and day trips to traditional city events such as birthdays, graduation celebrations or corporate events, Redeemer, Historical Regatta, Film Festival. It will be possible to expand the offer of experiences on board with the organization of aperitifs, dinners and buffets on board for guests of the structure with private club formula.
In conclusion, the aim is to offer our Dear Guests a unique experience, different from the usual holiday in a hotel or apartment. Sleeping by boat and waking up a short walk from the cultural and artistic center of Venice, moving by boat and enjoying the exclusive lagoon landscape, its lights, its fauna, its history, appreciate the city events from a privileged position, travel in the constellations of islands of Croatia to the coast of Greece.
All this will be part of the opportunity of the offer: simply an exceptional experience, the Akos + Freedom Project.
