Yacht Charter in Bodrum Turkey
For many decades, Bodrum has been the prime manufacturing capital of Turkish gulets – handcrafted wooden sailing yachts that sail the deep blue seas, all the way to the many ancient Greek Islands that neighbor the Turkish waters. Since the inception of gullets, Bodrum and the well known shipyards have expanded their manufacturing knowledge to the point of world recognition in building the finest sailing yachts in the world.
Another prime feature of Bodrum is the annual Bodrum Cup. This is a journey of sails galore. The uniqueness comes from the fact that only gulets and similar sailing yachts of all sizes can participate to win the Bodrum Cup in this gulet regatta.
After a short 40 minute drive from the Milas airport, travelers can reach the harbor to embark on their yacht Bodrum holidays. Due to Bodrum’s close proximity to the Greek Islands in the Dodecanese and Cyclades, many holidaymakers choose to begin their blue cruise travels from the Bodrum harbor. Islands such as Rhodes, Symi and Kos are ideal visits on boat holidays from Bodrum.
