LYRA is a beautiful 24 meter Gaffel Schooner Gulet built in Marmaris, Turkey, in 1994 hosting 350sqm of sails. Her buoys are made of wood gut as where in the 'old' days. The aim of the builder/owner was to create an old-timer with the traditional classic look but including all the modern comforts. The creaking of beams and ropes whilst under full sail is all part of LYRA's magic making a floating paradise.
