Güllük has always been a village where they build Turkish sailing boats (Turkish: gulets) just as they do in Bodrum. A gulet is a traditional two-masted wooden sail boat built on the southwest coast of Turkey, which varies in size from 15 to 35 meters, is the boat used for Blue Cruise charters. The village was an import export harbour for the Greeks trading during the Ottoman Empire period and was formerly known as Kulluk before 1933. A shipyard opened in Bodrum in the beginning of the 19th century along with others in settlements like Sinop, Gemlik, Rodos, Fatsa and Amasra. Large galleon construction in Bodrum was interrupted in the middle of 19th century, but they kept building boats for use in fishing, sponging and to facilitate commerce with the islands up until the years 1935 to 1936. Construction of the Bodrum type Gulet flourished in proportion to the development of tourism in the beginning of 1970s. The development of these gulets expanded the boat construction sector due to an increased interest in these types of boats.
