Mediterranean, Aegean, and the Black Sea, as well as
the Sea of Marmara, surround Turkey to the north, west
and south. With over 8,333 kilometers of coastline and
four seas, Turkey is a treasure chest of coves, inlets,
bays and beaches from which yachtsmen can choose a
different and always private anchorage each night.
sailing paradise of Turkey is home to the Blue Voyage.
This idyllic cruise means sailing with the winds, into
coves and over the seas and becoming one with nature.
It is also an experience of the history of man from
the perspective of the sea rather than from the land,
a journey which carries you to the private beach of
Cleopatra, the eternal fires of Mt. Olympos and the
myriad archaeological remains of ancient civilizations.
For lovers of the active life, sailing in clear waters
provides great opportunities for swimming, fishing,
skiing, surfing and diving.
Sailing in Turkey also allows you to experience a
truly enriching cultural exchange with the hospitable
and gracious people of the coastal villages and towns.
The tempered winds which generally blow from the west
and northwest make the long summers ideal for yachting,
and seem to encourage an appreciation of nature. From
some of the turquoise coast's unspoilt and sheltered
bays you can see mountain peaks rising to almost 3,000
meters above sea level.
Fortunately, Turkey's modern facilities and comfort
have not overshadowed her ancient hospitality and
slower pace of life. The pleasure of yachting in
Turkey will tempt you back again and again, to explore
yet another stretch of coast and to relive the
luxurious ease of life on the sea.
