A boat vacation is very different from a hotel vacation. During your tour, you can wake up in a different bay every morning and discover different beauties at different times of the day. You can enjoy swimming in turquoise-colored bays, covered with pine forests, away from the noise. With Turkey sailboat charter, you can sail to the vast blue waters intertwined with nature in the bays away from the noise of the city.
Sailboats can be rented as bareboat or skippered. If you have sufficient license and experience, you can rent the boats without a skipper and sail them yourself. Our team in the region will introduce you to the boat completely and give information about where and how the equipment is used. When this procedure, which we call check-in, is finished, you can start your tour. At the end of the tour, the condition of the boat will be checked during check out and the security deposit you have paid will be returned to you if there is no damage. There is no need for check-in for skippered charters. All you have to do is get on the boat and enjoy the route that our skippers will draw.

Sailboat Charter – Sailing Conditions in Turkey
The sailing season in Turkey is quite long compared to Greece and Croatia. While the normal season is accepted between the end of March and the end of October, the warm continues even in November and December with the effect of global warming and the season is getting longer. April, September and October are the months when experienced sailors visit the region. These months are the most favorable for sailing. If you do not have much experience, you can choose the warm months of June, July and August, when the seas and weather are calmer, for Turkey sailboat charter.
Depending on the geographical structure of the coastline, different local wind conditions may arise. If you are going on a sailing tour in the Spring or Autumn period, we recommend that you be careful against the Lodos (Southeast winds). Do not forget to listen to the weather and wind forecasts regularly during the transition periods of the seasons and to arrange your route according to these conditions. Although the Aegean coasts do not contain dangers like the open seas, it is still useful to take precautions.
Bareboat charter: In order to rent a commercial sailing boat, you must have a license accepted by the port authority. The yacht company has to inform the port authority of the information of everyone who will be on the boat. Name, surname, date of birth, citizenship or passport number, nationality information are reported to the port authority. This information is also written in a document called transitlog and a copy is delivered to you along with the other documents of the boat to keep with you during your tour. When you reach the marina, the team of the company in the region greets you and performs the necessary technical check-in procedures. At the end of Turkey sailboat charter, check-out is done and the company deliver the boat.
