Choose a Boat
Monohull Sailing Boats in Turkey
Choose a monohull sailing yacht and sail along the Turkish coastline. Monohulls are classic boats that offer easy navigation and no engine noise while sailing, maintaining high speeds on the Meltemi winds that pick up in the afternoon. The yachts are equipped with a bow thruster, helping you maneuver in tight and narrow spaces. Monohulls are ideal to feel real sailing sensation with affordable price range.
More experienced sailors can opt for a bareboat yacht charter and skipper their own yacht with friends and family. Others should choose a skippered yacht charter and let a skipper handle the winds. A skipper will also make recommendations about private locations and secluded coves, as well as Turkish gastronomic delights. You just have to choose a yacht most suitable for you and start enjoying your holidays.
Catamaran Sailing Boats in Turkey
A multihull yacht is designed with more interior and exterior space in mind. Cruise the warm turquoise Turkish waters comfortably, especially when going windward. Catamarans have a shallow draft that enables mooring and anchoring closer to shores, thus making it easier for you to visit designated locations.
You can choose a bareboat yacht charter and make your own sailing plan along the Turkish coastline. We would advise a skippered yacht charter, so you can have more leisure time, while a skipper handles local Turkish winds and katabatics. Swim in tranquil bays under sunny skies, go scuba diving and paragliding, and lounge peacefully on sandy beaches while sipping a cold drink.
Motor Yachts in Turkey
With a luxurious motor yacht, you will be able to comfortably sail the coast. Designed to transfer you from location to location quite fast, motor yachts are perfect for longer and more demanding sailing journeys. Spend your days relaxing on a deck, stern or flybridge while having a view on the magnificent Turkish Riviera and nearby islands.
Choose a skippered yacht charter and visit many archaeological sites, castles and temples. Stroll around Fethiye, a traditional market town and one of the most famous destination for paragliding. Go shopping in bazaars and feel free to bargain. Have a swim in the Blue Lagoon or find a secluded bay and relax while watching sunsets in a peaceful atmosphere with your friends and family.
Gulet Charter in Turkey
Gulets originate from Turkey, which means there are more gulets here than in any other country. Their traditional wooden looks with large sun decks and cozy communal areas, as well as their rich history, will make your sailing holidays unique, pleasant and memorable. The width and bulky design will ensure enough space and smooth sailing on board of gulet.
Fully relax on a gulet and in various secluded bays during warm summer days. The gulet comes with a crew, so you do not have to worry about everyday tasks during sailing. A skipper and a deckhand will take care of the navigation and winds, and a cook and a hostess will handle food service and drinks. Make sure to try raki, an iconic Turkish aperitif served with seafood.
Types of Chartering Options in Turkey
Bareboat yacht charter in Turkey will be a very pleasant experience during summer months when favorable sailing conditions are nurturing your yacht. Novice sailors can stick to the shore and island areas, while those more experienced can set sail offshore.
Skippered yacht charter is an ideal solution where local skipper’s extensive knowledge will lead you safely to exotic maritime locations of Turkey. Whether you will be sailing inshore areas or offshore, you will absorb rich history and breathtaking landscapes during your journey. It is advisable to hire a skipper when sailing in the offshore waters.
Crewed charter in Turkey will spoil all your senses. A captain is steering the yacht to the hidden private bay, a deckhand is handling all the ropes and systems on the yacht, a hostess is keeping the boat tidy and a cook is preparing delicious Mediterranean delights. With such a crew, your mission is to experience an ultimate vacation.
Flotilla sailing holidays - if you want to take your company for a team building or you can’t fit all your friends to one yacht, we have a solution for you. Sail out with two, five or even ten sailing yachts, and share that sailing sensation with all of your friends and colleagues. Imagine ten sailing yachts anchored in a picturesque bay and spending the night there - that is something you have to be a part of.
