Why charter a luxury yacht in Turkey?

Turkey is home to some of the oldest remaining archaeological sites in the world, many of which are perched overlooking the sea. Just south of Bodrum, you will find Knidos, a city built by the Greeks in the fifth century BC, where you can wander around the ruins of the temple and statue of Aphrodite. Further north is Didyma, where you can see more temple ruins, including a carved stone head of Medusa.

Sailing is the best way to explore the Turkish coastline, which is peppered with ancient sites, golden beaches and rustic seafood restaurants. Feel the salty breeze in your hair as you skip along the Mediterranean waves between nautical hotspots such as Bodrum, Fethiye and Antalya.

From Antalya all the way to Bodrum, Turkey’s cruising coast is full of beautiful bays and coves, remote beaches and lush pine forests. Visit the ancient archeological sites in Fethiye and party the night away in Bodrum. Relax at the Cotton Castle, the natural spas in Pamukkale and catch some rays in the unspoiled town of Kaş. The possibilities are endless.

About Turkey

Collect the ultimate holiday memories on land and water. The country of Turkey lies between Asia and Europe, with Ankara as its capital, and has a dozen borders, including the Black Sea, the Aegean Sea and of course the Mediterranean Sea. Stroll through Turkey's many bazars and markets. Try the local specialties with the delicious aromas and spices, or the famous non-alcoholic drink raki.

History of Turkey

Turkish history extends back thousands of years before the founding of the Turkish Republic in 1923. Turkey's geographic location, and its identity as a majority-Muslim nation with a secular and democratic constitution make it a key player in its region and in the world.

Gastronomy of Turkey

Turkish cuisine is one of the most varied in the world and is considered as the third richest cuisine after the French and the Chinese gastronomy.

The unique benefits of a private yacht charter in Turkey

Turkey provides a classic Mediterranean private luxury yacht charter experience that never disappoints. Turkey is a vibrant and historic corner of the Mediterranean, where you can sail the famed Aegean sea archipelago, one of the most popular destinations in the world of yachting. Next to freedom, privacy and independence, private yacht charters will also give you a time to connect. Aboard a yacht, time passes more slowly. It's a chance to get back to nature and enjoy life's simple pleasures—like a school of fish swimming by or a spectacular sunset. Most importantly, you spend quality time with those closest to you, in one of the most sought-after destinations around the globe.

Frequently asked questions about a yacht charter in Turkey

What does the charter contract look like?

The majority of the industry works with standardised contracts which have been created and refined by a consortium of industry professionals called MYBA. The charter contract outlines all the variables of a specific charter, such as the yacht, price, dates and location, as well as all the terms and conditions which cover all eventualities and the relationship between the various parties to the agreement.

In addition to the charter rate, which is the cost of renting the yacht, its equipment and its crew, there are extra costs which will be charged on top. These typically include any tax due on the charter (see VAT section above) and the APA which covers everything you will consume during your charter. On a case by case basis there may be delivery fees if you prefer to book the yacht in a location different to its base. Finally, some yachts require security deposits when hosting events.

All yachts have a limitation as to the number of guests which can be accommodated on board. This relates to the rules and regulations for the safety of passengers and is determined for each yacht based on the number of berths (individual sleeping places) and safety equipment. The maximum number of guests on board is usually 12, which is dictated by the general rules for commercial vessels, although some larger yachts can accommodate up to 36 guests if they are classified as passenger ships.

The process of booking a yacht can be quite complex, between finding the right yacht from the thousands available on the market, negotiating the best rates, the contract, working out the itinerary, the most efficient tax structure and many more. Our charter agents are here to take care of all the details so that you can focus on the fun part of the trip: relaxing on board and enjoying the sea and the area you are cruising!
