The Aegean and Mediterranean coastline in Turkey between Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye and Antalya, often called Turquoise Coast or Turkish Riviera, is an ideal if not one of the best destinations for a yachting sailing and cruising vacation.
To take a blue cruise or blue voyage in Turkey is a unique experience and definitely the best way for travelers to explore a beautiful cruising ground which has got so much to offer : plenty of sun and blue skies, good sailing winds, perfect anchorages, un-spoilt natural scenery, magnificent historical sites, a superb cuisine and friendly hospitable people. The combination of all these beauties together with a very pleasant cruise aboard a traditional Turkish wooden yacht will make your dream of holidays of a lifetime come true.
During a blue cruise charter of a week or two you can sit back and relax whilst your experienced and friendly crew cares for all the rest. Spend the day sunbathing and sailing or cruising, swim, fish, surf, snorkel in the turquoise and crystal clear waters of the many secluded bays and coves, explore ancient ruins, go for a walk in the shade of thick pine tree forests, visit typical coastal villages, stroll through little harbour towns and last but not least enjoy the fabulous dishes of Turkish cuisine which are freshly prepared and served on board.
The typical sailing boat for a Blue Voyage in Turkey is a handcrafted traditional wooden motorsailer mostly referred to as "gulet" or "gullet". These boats are custom-built and designed specifically for yachting holidays in comfort. Our own cruise boat "Yucel S" as well some other owner-operated boats can be rented from us on a private crewed yacht charter basis for sole occupancy.
Families or groups of friends can book their own private yacht for holidays, honeymoons, anniversaries and many other happy occasions. A cruise aboard one or several of our boats is also the perfect platform for corporate events like trainings, team buildings, seminars, board meetings, conferences, marketing events, incentives etc.
Sporadically some of our boats offer cabin charter cruises where couples or singles are welcome to book single cabins. Whatever kind of cruise is suitable for you, wherever you wish to go, whatever you wish to see or do - we are at your service for any kind of individual cruise arrangement

Owner-operated cruise boats - for guests with a taste for quality. For an unforgettable blue cruise in Turkey we offer our own boat Yucel S for charter. She is steered, looked after and maintained by ourselves and therefore efficiently equipped, tastefully fitted-up and in perfect conditions with regards to technical standards and cleanliness.
In addition to this we offer a fine selection of other traditional wooden boats and gullets. These yachts are owner-operated as well and meet our own high-quality standards in all respects (boat's conditions, quality of service and crew). The boats recommended by us vary in size, equipment standards and are with or without air conditioning. Their sizes range between 45 ft and 108 ft with 2 to 12 cabins. If our own boat should not meet your requirements with regards to size and/or equipment and you wish such an alternative offer instead please enquire by the information request form.
