From the high scale yachts to the budget friendly boats, there are hundreds of private charter yachts to choose from in Turkey. If you’re planning on a private yacht charter from Turkey, two of the most popular harbors that many travelers are keen to embark from are Bodrum and Gocek. Bodrum offers guests a wide selection of luxury choices in Turkish gulets. Bodrum is also renown for the high quality standards in accommodation and services by qualified crews. Blue cruises originated from Bodrum; hence an authentic and traditional private yacht charter Turkey vacation on board finely hand-crafted gulet is the way to go. It’s amazing how detailed these yachts can be. Such excellent craftsmanship creates a floating masterpiece in carpentry like no other.
As for a private yacht charter from Gocek, the convenience of starting or ending your trip in this charming town is a matter of a mere 20 minute transfer from the airport to Gocek harbor to begin your Eastern Mediterranean yacht vacation. When you combine a route between the two ports of Bodrum and Gocek, or Gocek and Bodrum, you have an array of itinerary combinations to create a wonderful holiday experience – even including the Greek Islands along the way. There is one week (or longer if you choose), to enjoy the highlights of the southern coast. You can work out your itinerary by including the places that peak your interest with the help of your agent or captain.
