Who Goes on a Turkey Yacht Charter?

A luxury yacht charter in Turkey offers dramatic and diverse cruising grounds to discover as well as secret coves, picturesque villages, and an unsurpassed world of luxury. Whether you’re after a journey into historic sites, a spot of tranquility, a touch of water sports, or simply some shopping, Turkey has something for everyone.

History and Culture

Turkey’s history stretches back over 5,000 years, and represents a unique blend of eastern and western cultures, boasting a rich archaeological legacy left over from classical civilizations and Islamic Middle East, with several locations of cultural significance now designated UNESCO Heritage sites.

Its strategic position between Europe and Asia has seen it act as both a conduit and barrier simultaneously between the two continents of Asia and Europe over the years. Over the centuries Turkey became more secular and Western-orientated, culminating in a reform of the Turkish language.

Types of Yacht Charters in Turkey

As a popular destinations for yacht charters in the East Mediterranean, there should be ample to choose from when it comes to crewed yachts for charter in Turkey. If you’re unsure about whether you want to book a gulet, motor or sailing yacht for your luxury getaway, there are a few things you should consider first.

Gulet Yacht Charters in Turkey

Gulet charter cruising Turkish waters

Making up the majority of the fleet in this country, a luxury gulet in Turkey can provide guests with an excellent crewed charter experience to explore secluded coves and ancient ruins in a more cost-effective manner, with a vast amount of deck space on board. Expect capped air condition times, specific hours of cruising included in the price and lower APA costs as you are mostly in bays, but expect higher fees for ports.

Motor Yacht Charters in Turkey

Guests can also select from a fleet of luxury motor yachts in Turkey, mostly located in Bodrum, Göcek, Fethiye, Marmaris, and Bozburun. Complete with larger interior volumes, more powerful engines as well as better amenities on offer, it's a sumptuous alternative to gulets. However, this is usually paired with higher charter costs.

Sailing yacht charters in Turkey

How Much Does it Cost to Charter a Yacht in Turkey?

There’s something to suit every type of budget for a Turkey yacht rental. The overall price of a Turkey yacht charter vacation varies depending on a number of factors, including the type of yacht, the age of the yacht, and the month in which you choose to charter. 

  • A Turkey motor yacht rental can range from $28,294 to $1.6m per week, plus expenses
  • For luxury sailing and gulet yacht rentals in Turkey, prices can go from $21,013 to $147,091 weekly, plus expenses

When is the Best Time for Turkey Yacht Charters?

May till October are the best months to cruise the shimmering Aegean and Mediterranean waters on a yacht charter. Yacht charter guests can expect here an average minimum temperature of 15 degrees from May, before peaking to 33 degrees in July and August. It still remains positively balmy come October, reaching up to 24 degrees, with comfortable sea temperatures averaging 25 degrees.

Where Should I Begin my Yacht Charter in Turkey?

Ancient ruins in Turkey

The majority of yacht charters in Turkey commence in the country’s southwestern marinas thanks to the excellent provision of facilities, unparalleled scenery, and convenient location to both regional and international airports. Vibrant Bodrum, the picturesque fishing village of Göcek, or the enchanting Çeşme, Marmaris, Fethiye, or Antalya are all chartering favorites.

For a less obvious starting point, you could choose the tranquil bliss of the Bosphorus strait near Istanbul. However, keep in mind you will have fewer charter options available in this area.

Where to End a Turkey Yacht Charter

Bodrum and Marmaris are popular points to end a Turkey yacht charter, thanks to their excellent array of facilities and close proximity to international airports.

Most Popular Superyacht Hotspots in Turkey

The Turkish Riviera (also charmingly known as the Turquoise Coast thanks to its vividly-colored waters) comprising southwestern destinations like Fethiye, Marmaris, and Bodrum, is by far the most popular area for chartering.

Fethiye Yacht Charters

Many begin a yacht charter in Fethiye, thanks to its convenient location to Marmaris and Bodrum in the north. Dominated by soaring cedar trees and pine-carpeted cliffs that tumble into clear blue waters, it's flecked with archaeological ruins and uninhabited islands, with plenty of bays to take toys for a spin. Fethiye yacht charters are also a great base for visiting one of Turkey’s most jaw-dropping beautiful beaches, Ölüdeniz (Blue Lagoon).

Göcek Yacht Charters

Beautiful mountain backdrop at Gocek bay Turkey

Göcek yacht rentals have been long adored by international jet setters. This fishing village located on a private bay is the entry to undiscovered coves and more than 12 islands of unmatched beauty. Boasting six well-equipped marinas (including two for superyachts) it’s brimming with cafes and tavernas. Before going off-shore, stop by for a traditional mezze platter or sip a cocktail as the sun's apricot glow falls on its shorefront promenades.

Marmaris Yacht Charters

A Marmaris yacht charter gives guests the best of both worlds. A superyacht haven, this buzzing town is a hub of activity: with a bustling grand bazaar, throngs of restaurants, bars, and shops lining cobblestone streets, and paragliders filling the skies above. But this is in dramatic contrast to the rest of the stunning Carian Coast which is within easy reach of Marmaris: secluded bays and quaint villages are dotted all along the Bozburun Peninsula

Bodrum Yacht Charters

Why are Bodrum yacht rentals so popular? It's a vibrant coastal city humming with nightlife and home to a large glittering marina as well as the landmark St. Peter’s Castle. Unquestionably a glamorous beach hangout, hip restaurants and bars sheltered by palm trees frame the chic Yalikavak marina.

During a Bodrum yacht charter, be sure to anchor at nearby Türkbükü Bay for a taste of the “Saint-Tropez of Turkey" and dance under a canopy of stars. Cruise further afield and you’ll reach the olive-grove covered Datça Peninsula, as well as the Dalyan-Ekincik Bay, revered for its windsurfing opportunities. 

Popular Marinas and Anchorages in Turkey

Marinas

Surrounded by the Mediterranean, Aegean, Marmara, and Black Seas, it should come as no surprise that Turkey is home to a vast array of world-class marinas perfect for gulet or yacht chartering. It should be noted that whilst the Black Sea is replete with deep valleys, verdant mountains, and crater lakes, it does not usually feature on a typical yacht itinerary. That’s largely down to its wetter and colder climate, leading to few well-developed marinas. As a result, it does not feature in our list below.

For yacht charters on Turkey's Mediterranean Coast:

  • Kaş marina: recently developed and has slip capacity for 450 yachts.
  • Setur Finike marina: situated in the stunning historic city of Finike, with a 320 slip capacity. 
  • Setur Antalya marina: renowned superyacht marina, slip capacity reaches 235 yachts.

For yacht charters on Turkey's Aegean Coast:

  • Yalıkavak marina: award-winning with 620-slip capacity, catering to every possible yachting need.
  • Çeşme marina: located in the illustrious port village steeped with history,  it can accommodate 400 slips up to 80m.
  • Skopea marina: regarded as the original superyacht marina, it accommodates up to 80 yachts, with 110m yachts tied to a jetty.

For yacht charters in Turkey's Marmara Region:

  • Ataköy marina: just outside of Istanbul's city center and known for its nightlife. 700 moorings up to 40m.
  • Istanbul marina: located in the heart of Turkey, with 720 moorings for yachts up to 60m.
  • West Istanbul marina: highly acclaimed, it caters to 600 slips up to 95m.

Anchorages

The Turquoise Coast is unquestionably Turkey's anchorage paradise, studded with emerald islands with golden bays lapped by beautiful blue-green waters begging to be explored. Here is our pick of some of the best anchorages in Turkey:

  • Cleopatra Bay (Manastir): located a stone’s throw from the beautiful town of Fethiye, this glorious sequestered bay yields a bounty of emerald-clear waters atop ancient baths, perfect for anchoring and an afternoon kayak.
  • Fethiye: This port city is known for its exquisite natural harbor, vast swathes of deep golden sand beaches and stunning blue waters. The area also boasts an array of ancient rock tombs dating back to 4th Century BC. 
  • Kalcan (Lycian Coast): a gorgeous sheltered bay set within a charming fishing village against a backdrop of rugged mountainous scenery. Step ashore and explore this tranquil haven, which also boasts a plethora of excellent dining options. 
  • Kekova (Antalya province): this beautiful small island near Kas is the ideal spot to drop anchor for the night, which also happens to be the site of a rather unique ancient sunken city. Although a popular hotspot for tourists during the day, if you aim to arrive around 5pm, you’ll have the place to yourselves.

Turkey Yacht Charter Q&A

  • Q.
    How do I secure my Turkey yacht charter?
    A.

    For booking most yacht charters, a completed charter agreement and 50% of the charter fee is required upfront as a deposit to secure your chosen yacht. This is usually payable once the contract has been signed

  • Q.
    How much does it cost to charter a yacht in Turkey?
    A.

    Turkey is an increasingly popular superyacht destination, so yacht charter guests can rest assured that they will have boundless vessel options which will meet their budget criteria. 

    Whatever type of vessel you ultimately choose, one thing to keep track of are the additional costs not included in the yacht charter base rate. For example, VAT and the APA (Advance Provisioning Allowance). This is usually 30% of the charter fee, and paid in advance. The APA covers expenses such as fuel, berthing, food and drinks, as well as any special requests.

  • Q.
    What do I need to consider before booking a Turkey yacht charter?
    A.

    Unlike many yacht charter destinations, you also have the option of a gulet charter in Turkey. It is well worth considering if it may be right for you. Benefits include lower APA costs and considerably wide decks onboard to lap up turquoise-tinged panoramas that surround you. However, capped fuel limits and air conditioning times are common to gulet yacht charters.

  • Q.
    Is it possible to visit Greece on a Turkey yacht charter?
    A.

    Yes, it is possible to visit Greece on a luxury Turkey yacht charter. However, additional VAT and fees may apply if venturing outside Turkish waters. It is also worth noting that for convenience, it can often be better to visit Turkey and then Greece or vice versa, rather than zig-zag between the two. That's because you will need to provide documentation every time you cross borders which can be time-consuming.

    For precise details regarding fees and routes to Greece, consult your charter broker.
