Charter a private yacht in Turkey for your next summer vacation and you will discover a land blessed with a truly timeless appeal. The Lycian and Carian coasts of Turkey offer its seafaring guests a vast array of sights and flavours, and staggeringly clear blue seas. From deeply forested hills and peaks to luxurious sandy bays with turquoise waters, pine-clad islands to vibrant, multi-coloured harbour towns, you’ll discover lesser-traveled waters and quiet, relaxed anchorages in this most unique corner of the Mediterranean.
With excellent local and international links, the most popular one-way luxury yacht charter routes encompass the country’s southwestern coast, either beginning or ending in the Turkish cities of Göcek and Bodrum. For a more intrepid journey, a round trip Turkish charter holiday can include Fethiye and the seas beyond Göcek, where much of the exclusive region is only accessible by boat.
Due to its position between the East and the West, Turkey is made up of a true melting pot of cultures. The country’s rich history is apparent everywhere you look, from striking Greek ruins to intricate Islamic architecture. This visual feast is the result of the Persian, Ottoman, Roman and Byzantine empires - each leaving their mark on the country. Not limited to archaeology, this influence extends to the superb food, where flavors from Iran, Greece, the Balkans and Asia can be found both in fine dining establishments and the local bazaar alike.
A typical day on a luxury charter yacht in Turkey combines an abundance of land and water activities. Take a step back in time and swim in clear waters amongst the remains of Cleopatra’s baths, or kayak along the coastline to spot glimpses of ancient ruins and cliff face tombs. On the shore, enjoy haggling in the vibrant bazaars before returning to the peaceful luxury of your charter yacht, laden with local products.
Passages between islands can be short, enabling plenty of relaxed mornings spent island-hopping and lazy afternoons exploring little villages and towns.
