Turkish service and hospitality need no introduction and yachting infrastructure is not an exception: here each and every marina meets the highest criteria. In addition, Turkey boasts of the longest yachting season in the Mediterranean - from April to October. Moreover, the temperature in winter is about + 15 ... + 20 C and the water temperature rarely drops below +17, so some people go cruising on New Year's Eve. Moreover, some yachtsmen who are not afraid of a slight cooling trend, sail even on New Year's Eve. The most popular yacht charter spots are by the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas: there are tons of bays that are decently covered from winds, as well as closely located to Greek islands.
Turkey is suitable for both beginners and experienced sailors: spectacular nature and excellent service — this is a simple recipe why extremely Turkey is popular to rent yachts or catamarans. The major starting points are Marmaris, Gocek, Fethiye; all of them are closely located from each other. The city of Bodrum, located directly opposite the Greek island of Kos, is another popular starting point. A resort town with a charming name - Marmaris - no exaggeration - the yachting capital in the country. Here you can rent a yacht or catamaran and go the West towards Hisaronu Bay and Bodrum, or, for instance, to the East towards Fethiye Bay. 3 berths for 1,100 yachts, 9 shipyards, excellent infrastructure, and a whole yachting town ... sometimes they even compare Marmaris with Ibiza.
If you rent a yacht or catamaran in Turkey, be sure to include Fethiye Bay to your itinerary. You can start from a small town called Gocek or directly from the city of Fethiye. The one has transformed from a small sea village into one of the best marinas in the Mediterranean. In the above mentioned Bodrum, the selection of yachts and catamarans is not that wide, but there is a decent collection of gulets (classic wooden Turkish ships) that are being provided over with a professional crew (captain, cook, hostess). The navigational conditions here are more complicated than towards Fethiye: the wind is stronger and the transitions are longer. However, traveling on a yacht near Bodrum, you can go to the Greek islands of Symi, Kos and others.
The marinas in Turkey are convenient and meet all standards; there are several types of marinas: large ones with full service and maintenance, or small piers with a restaurant in a beautiful bay. In the latter, you will not be charged any money for a place if you have lunch/dinner for a certain deposit.
