Great Sailing Vacation in Turkey

Jul 10, 2008
Turkey is a country rich in culture. On one end, you have the ruins of ancient civilizations while on the other; you have modern marinas that make it an ideal venue to start your Turkish sailing vacation. Turkey is a moderately developed nation with a wide range of tourist facilities of all classes in the main tourist destinations.

Charter boats in Turkey departs from Bodrum, Marmaris, Gocek. This will allow you to go to Antalya, Fethiye, Gocek, Dalyan, and Kusadasi all the way up to the Greek islands and back. When you shop for the right boat, you will notice that there are three types to choose from. These are namely crewed sailing yacht, the gulet and the bareboat.

Crewed Charter Boat - The crewed charter comes with a permanent crew so you don't have to worry about anything. They will not only take control of the ship or cook food but they can teach you a thing or two about sailing so you can do this on your own some day and act as your tour guide through the voyage. These vessels may measure form 46 to 75 feet in length that can accommodate up to 8 guests.

Gulet Boat - The gullet boat was once a fishing vessel but now, many of them are built for charter holidays. They are very spacious inside and outside so you can eat comfortably or sunbathe. The foredeck is normally covered cushions and the side decks are spacious enough for people both young and old. They are much bigger than the crewed chartered yachts as they measure from 50 to 100 feet which allows it to hold 16 guests in double and triple cabins. Each cabin in the Gulet has its own separate shower and toilet facilities. The vessel runs on engine power but if the winds are strong, the sails are set so the Mediterranean breeze will show the way.

The Barerboat Yatch - The bareboat yacht is a little different from the other two because they are smaller and it doesn't need to be run by a professional crew. The only requirement is that one of you should have a skipper's license or certificate from a sailing organization that states your experience in seamanship & offshore navigation.

The best part about the bareboat is that it is up to you how long your charter will be unlike the rest that have a standard package. You can drop anchor anywhere you want since you are the one that sets the itinerary so there is no pressure.

You can find charter companies for your Turkey sailing vacation in magazines and online. Some of these sites have pictures of the vessel so you have an idea how it looks like before you confirm your trip.

If you are not sure yet that you want to confirm with this charter company, just fill up their form so you are able to get a quote and then use this together with the rest to make a comparison on which one is the best.

The best time for a sailing vacation in Turkey is either early or late in the season that is between April to mid-July and from mid-September to end October when the skies are generally clear. You can also plan your trip during May and June but keep in mind that the weather here is going to be very hot. Winds are generally between 15 to 20 knots that happen to be lower than Greece.
