Monohull Sailing Boats in Turkey

Monohull sailing yacht charter sailing 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 with the help of 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 the ideal choice if you want to feel the real sailing sensation for an affordable price. 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. The skipper will also make recommendations about private locations and secluded coves, as well as Turkish gastronomic delights. You only have to choose a yacht most suitable for you and get ready for a perfect sailing holiday.

Catamaran Sailing Boats in Turkey

Charter catamaran sailing 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 the shore, thus making it easier for you to visit designated locations. You can choose a bareboat yacht charter and plan your own sailing route on the Turkish coast. 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.
