Yacht Charter Turkey

Turkey has become one of the most popular areas for bareboat yacht charter holidays and flotilla sailing, in the Mediterranean. With more coastline than any other Mediterranean country, you're guaranteed to find a pretty anchorage for your charter yacht. The Turkish coastline tends to have a few more trees (pine) than the rest of the Mediterranean yacht charter areas, and even has the odd waterfall. Along the coasts of the Aegean and Mediterranean, you'll sail within turquoise waters and sheltered bays that were once touched by the Carians, Lycians, Greeks, Romans and Byzantines. You can also sail upon ancient ruins an archeological sites including Greek cities, sunken Roman harbors and crusader castles. It's no surprise that Turkey is such a wealth of culture, history and intrigue.

The cuisine in Turkey reflects a meeting point between Asia and Europe. Apart from the traditional shish kebabs and raki, there is amazingly fresh vegetables and good wine available, along with other provisions in the marinas. The biggest yacht charter base in Turkey is Bodrum which boasts the magnificent Knights of Rhodes fortress.
