Sailing Routes in Turkey

Sailing Turkey with passion and friendliness…

Beautiful seas, rich cultural heritage and over 7000 kilometers of coastline make Turkey one of the most popular sailing destinations. Turkey is the best destination for a gulet cruise, since gulets originate from Turkish tradition but other types of yacht charter are also available. Marmaris is one of the most popular charter destinations in the Mediterranean, located on Turkey's Aegean coast. Another popular destination, Bodrum is famous for its 15th century castle, yachts, shipyards as well and its white houses and tombs that line the shores of its two harbors.
