Yacht charter in Turkey
Turkey is a country rich in history and culture – a real melting pot where the middle east meets west, with no shortage of pristine beach resorts and magnificent landscapes either.
Turkey is a unique combination of fabulous fishing villages, vibrant towns and pristine white beaches, all of which are wrapped in a fascinating and chequered historical past. The waters here are packed full of varied marine life which lend themselves perfectly for diving, and the serene sheltered bays act as perfect anchorages during your private yacht charter.
What cities can I reach on a cruise around Turkey?
Chartering a yacht in Turkey allows you to unwind and discover a nation that can boast some of most incredible coastlines, a welcoming hospitality and national cuisine that can be matched by few others.
A charter is all it takes to experience all that Turkey has to offer, including coastal delights such as Gocek and Bodrum.

What to see on a trip to Turkey
Chartering a yacht means you can take in the most spectacular views that Turkey has to offer, all at your own leisure – a luxurious trip around the Mediterranean can take in such wonderful locations as Gocek, Marmaris, Ekincik, Keci Buku, Datca, Knidos and Bodrum.
When you charter a yacht in Turkey, Gocek is one of the finest places to begin your voyage – a high-class marina and attractive bay makes this town a must visit for those that want to enjoy all the luxury of a yachting holiday.
Marmaris is often maligned for being a party central place, yet, this town is covered in history and tradition. It exudes ocean views and it has some of the best luxury bars on offer anywhere in the region.
Passing through traditional settings, windmills and 21st Century power wind turbines, Daçta is a heady mixture of old and new, but with a resort-like feel that gives it an authentic Turkish feel and experience. It is also an ideal spot for windsurf lovers.
Finally, a trip to Bodrum is the perfect way to the end a magical journey – the peninsula, home to the town of the same name, has an eclectic mixture of exclusive resorts, laid back coastal villages and upmarket restaurants, and holds true to the sights and traditions that made it one of Turkey’s most popular resorts. Bodrum town itself is an elegant seaside getaway, where its beaches, boutique hotels, trendy restaurants and clubs each summer, the town of Bodrum (ancient Halicarnassus) never seems to lose its cool.
Mixing an enigmatic elegance and cool, the town’s castle and glittering marina contrast with the flower-filled cafes and white plastered backstreets. A real getaway, even in its most hectic summer days.
