A timeless stretch of turquoise from Bodrum to Antalya, Southern Turkey is the capital of the world renown blue voyage. Turkey is also the home of luxury handmade wooden yachts called gulets. The vessels built for the blue voyage or blue cruise.
Be it the classic or modern or a bit of both, you can charter a gulet in Turkey from May until the end of October. These impressive works of art come in all different styles and sizes and available in 5 levels of luxury. Not one gulet will ever be the exact same as another since they are handmade and not of fiber factory molds.
In addition to gulets, you can also charter sailing yachts, motor yachts, and bareboat. The Mirya Yachting portfolio does not include bareboat.
Travelers can embark and disembark from the ports in Bodrum, Bozburun, Marmaris, Gocek, Fethiye, and Kas. Kas is rare but might be possible depending on the time of year and gulet. Bozburun is also not often offered and depends on the gulet booking schedule. The more popular ports are the others.
The Dalaman International Airport serves Marmaris (just over an hour), Fethiye (approx. 40 minutes), and Gocek (approx. 20 minutes). While the Milas Airport serves Bodrum (approx. 40 minutes).
There are dozens of itineraries, perhaps the most route combinations you will find especially for gulet charters in the world. This is especially true when you decide to combine the Dodecanese islands with your Turkish gulet charter trip. The Turkish ports closest to the Greece islands are Bodrum and Marmaris. Gocek and Fethiye are the furthest away, where Rhodes is 6 hours or more by gulet from Gocek depending on weather conditions at the time.
The Turkish blue cruise turquoise coast is divided into two – the Aegean (Bodrum, Bozburun, Marmaris), and the Mediterranean (Gocek, Fethiye, Kas/Kalkan). Combine great cuisine – fresh and plentiful, culture, history, ancient ruins/sites, virgin villages, fishing towns, mini-cities, and that unforgettable Turkish hospitality, lush green scenery, and of course the endless shades of deep blue and turquoise waters this season.
Charter Turkey this season and explore the treasures of the turquoise coast and islands.
