After giving the perfect location for your sailing holiday extensive thought, the beautiful Marmaris in Turkey made it to your top-five list. You chose the location and now you want to know more about yacht charter in the Marmaris region. We have some answers for you.
Choose a Perfect Yacht for You
When chartering any yacht, think about the size of your party first. You need to make sure everyone is comfortable and has enough privacy, so you need a yacht with an adequate number of cabins or berths. For parties larger than 12 people, charter a gulet which will provide you not only enough space, but also a unique experience of sailing in Turkey. Marmaris, as well as the rest of Turkey, is the best destination for chartering gulets, as they are traditional Turkish boats.
Marmaris is one of the world's best sailing locations and an interesting seaside resort with beautiful coves and beaches. The Marmaris yacht base is one of the top five yacht charter bases in Turkey and from there you can sail off to the rest of the remarkable Turkish coastline on board a charter yacht of your choice. You can do the sailing yourself on a bareboat charter yacht or let an experienced skipper do all the work by chartering a skippered yacht.
Where and When to Go?
Go on a cruise around the Bay of Marmaris and visit Cennet Adasi (Paradise Island). The climate in Marmaris is very mild in winter and very hot in July and August - temperatures can reach up to 42 °C. It almost never rains between May and October. The prevailing wind blows from the west, so the north-west side of the Marmaris Bay provides the most comfortable spot for anchoring your yacht.
There are several marinas to choose from: the Albatross Yacht Marina, Karacasogut Jetty, Marmaris Netsel (Setur) Marina, Marmaris Yacht Marina and Marti Marina ve Yat Isletmeciligi A.S.
The nearest regional airport is Dalaman, about 100 km away from Marmaris. Transfers are easily arranged online and the bus connections are frequent.
