Yachting in Turkey

Yachting in Turkey
The beautiful turquoise and blue waters of the Mediterranean , Aegean , Marmara and Black Sea that surround the south, west and north of Turkey offers coves, inlets, bays and beaches, is a paradise for any yachtsman and offers many choices of different locations to anchor every night. This area is home to the Blue Voyage boats and yachts that sail through idyllic waters visiting thousands of ancient sites that are on offer, the wonderful beaches like Cleopatra’s or to visit the eternal flame at Mount Olympus . The long summers and moderate winds blowing west and northwest make it ideal for sailing, allowing visitors to experience the warmth and hospitality of Turkey’s coastal villages and towns and appreciating the natural beauty of unspoilt sheltered bays and the mountains that reach 3,000m above sea level.


Gulet Cruises

The gulet is a traditional two-masted wooden sailing vessel that was originally constructed in the shipyards of Bodrum , Bozburun , Marmaris , Istanbul and those along the Black Sea coast. Although once used for cargo and fishing the vessels are now equipped with motors along with their fully functional rigging.  Passenger numbers vary according to the size of the boat but most can accommodate between 8 and 12 people. Chartering a gulet will include separate cabins for passengers, crew, services and entertainment and are equipped with most home comforts to ensure a comfortable relaxed atmosphere whilst cruising.
There are many travel agencies that can arrange fixed tours either for groups or individuals. Unlike large cruise ships they are able to explore secluded, deserted bays, coves and beaches along the coastline; sail into small harbours and coastal villages which offer the visitor a more intimate view of life. The gulet is a floating fully serviced hotel with a sea view from every room and gives you scenery that constantly changes.
