Turkey Yacht Charter Vacation

Why Charter a Yacht in Turkey?

With its strategic location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, the Turkish peninsula is bordered by a total of eight countries and is surrounded by three different Seas: the Aegean Sea to the west, the Black Sea to the north, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. It has over 500 islands along with 4,400 miles of unspoiled coastline which is best explored on a luxury yacht charter (motor yacht or luxury gulet charter).

Turkey offers private luxury yacht charters that typically start from Gocek and include visits to islands such as Gocek Island, Kas, or Kekova, which has an ancient underwater city that can be reached only via snorkeling or deep-sea diving. For those looking to explore the rich culture and history of the country, Fethiye Marina on the Gulf of Fethiye (‘Turkish Riviera’) provides a great starting point. This region is rich in archaeological treasures, including the famous rock tombs of Antalya. In addition, the popular Oludeniz beach, also known as the Blue Lagoon, is closer to Fathiye Marina and can be visited for stunning views and impromptu photo sessions while sailing on the luxury private yacht charter in Turkey.

When is the Best Time for a Yacht Charter in Turkey?

The season for a luxury yacht charter in Turkey is quite long and spans the summer months, from April and October. This period offers the most favorable weather conditions for sailing, with warm temperatures ranging between 25°C and 35°C (77°F to 95°F), clear skies, gentle breezes, and long daylight hours, creating ideal conditions for cruising along the coastline and exploring the islands.

Luxury Yacht charters in Turkey are a unique experience due to the Meltemi wind, which blows from the Northwest to West-Northwest on the open water and follows the coastlines closer to shore. In the summer, the average wind speed is 10-15 knots, and sometimes the guests can have a thrilling experience with 25-30 knots in the peak season. After the peak season, meltemi is generally weaker and you can experience mild winds. We recommend large, crewed yachts such as motor yachts, sailing yachts, or Gulet Charters to give you the best experience in the winds of the Sea.

That said, while summer is the most popular time for yacht charters in Turkey, the spring and early autumn months can also offer pleasant weather conditions fewer crowds, AND discounted charter prices, making them attractive alternatives for those seeking a quieter sailing experience. Consult with an experienced private yacht charter to get the best experience for your Luxury yacht charter vacation in Turkey.
