In order to go that one step further in ensuring your complete satisfaction we have chosen the best captains and crew available, thus maintaining the top standard of service on your luxury yacht
Antalya is one of Turkey's most popular destinations for both land and sea holidays. An ideal place to start or finish your sailing charter from, Antalya is also a perfect place to use your comfortable crewed yacht as a hotel to be based on, whilst enjoying the sights of Antalya.
Antalya is one of the most important holiday resort cities of Turkey and attracts visitors from all over the world. The city is steeped in history: named after King Attalus II of Pergamon, Ataleia was founded in the 2 nd Century B.C... As it has it's own International Airport it is another popular location to start a cruise from.
The old town with its tiny harbour is charming and an oasis of beauty most . unexpected in such a large city. The Antalya Region is now called the "Turkish Riviera" because of the wealth of archeological sites and the easy access to many natural beauty spots. The ancient sites of Perge, Aspendos and Termessos are close by, as are national parks, waterfalls and spectacular caves.
Goçek is a popular harbour for crewed charter yachts to be based in and many bareboat sailing companies operate from here as the large Bay of Göçek is sheltered and ideal for learning to sail in.
Göçek is another ideal place to start your blue cruise from
The Gulf of Göçek is dotted with islands and numerous coves and is an ideal bay to explore on land and by sea. The ruins of Arymaxa an ancient city lie at the waters edge at the southern tip of the gulf. There are Byzantine ruins on Tersane Island some of which are the ancient shipyards. Turkey is not a recent convert to the art of boat building and has a tradition in boat construction dating back to early records.
The location of Marmaris, near the airport at Dalaman, makes it another ideal starting point for your cruise. Marmaris, originally ancient Physicus was on the Anatolia - Rhodes - Egypt trading route in olden times and became a large and prosperous city because of it. Today it is a mixture of the old town with very modern hotels lining the beaches. Locals and holiday makers alike take a turn along the promenade to look at all the classical wooden Gulettes moored up to the town quay
The beaches in this area are beautiful white sand and make an impressive white barrier between the crystal clear blue sea and the lush greenery of the pine forests that reach down to the waters edge. The mountains behind Marmaris make a wonderful back drop to this picturesque little town. Marmaris has excellent marinas and the diverse shopping opportunities make it a good choice for either starting or ending your cruise.
Bodrum-Turkey. The ideal place to start or finish your charter cruise. Bodrum has long been the boatbuilding center of Turkey and has an excellent marina plus many anchorages to sail to within easy distance. Bodrum is indisputably the most well known of all the Turkish resorts for many reasons. A charming little town with a beautiful Bay presided over by the magnificent Castle of St John; Bodrum also has the great advantage of being half an hour away from the Bodrum Milas Airport.
