A Turkish superyacht charter can take you on a captivating historical journey through the land of the Ottoman Empire. Grand history like this sits side by side with a bustling contemporary scene.

Enjoy the variety of delicacies on offer, sinking into the delectable meld of Indian, Persian, and Arabic cuisine. Every yacht comes with a world-class chef onboard who can prepare you Turkish delights to enjoy in your palatial privacy.
With its incredible history and diverse people, Turkey has endless opportunities for cultural exploration. One highlight of a stay in the Bodrum area is the charming fishing village Gumsuluk, which is known for attracting artists and sculptors alike. An international music festival graces the town during summer, bringing discerning enthusiasts with it.
The festival is held in the breathtaking Ancient Stone Quarry – stones of which were used to build one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Mausoleum. Whatever your tastes, our inside knowledge means we can take you to the best locales others won’t know about to whet your cultural appetite.
On the southern Aegean coast of Turkey, you’ll find plenty of learning opportunities. Bodrum Castle & Museum of Underwater Archaeology provides a fascinating insight into maritime stories of years gone by with incredible artefacts from ancient shipwrecks. Further south lies the waterfront memorial that marks the spot Ottoman legend Admiral Turgut Reis first set sail, the perfect place to pause and reflect on your own ocean expedition.
Soak up some ancient history in Assos across from the Gulf of Edremit and walk amongst the ruins of a grand amphitheatre where Aristotle once lectured. There are many destinations like this that offer the chance to learn about Turkey’s expansive history, like the temple of Bergama which has been recreated in Berlin. We can take you on an adventure to Ephesus, one of the best-preserved Mediterranean cities in the Mediterranean. Wander the wide streets of this bewitching excavated city, from the colourful mansions that dot the hillside to the magnificent Library of Celsus that towers into the sky.
If you’re interested in the wealth of history on display, we can arrange for talks from experts involved in the conservation efforts of ancient sites like these. At Yomira, we have a passion for superyacht experiences that enrich and invigorate.
Natural sites of extraordinary beauty abound on Turkey’s coastline, allowing for serene relaxation just by taking in the awe-inspiring sights. Paradise Bay in Kemer is one such glittering jewel that’s not to be missed. A crescent of pristine sand curves out into an impossibly turquoise sea. Lose hours snorkelling slowly through the crystalline shallows, spotting the colourful marine life that darts below you. Further inland, you can stroll amongst pine trees and through blooming citrus groves suffused with fresh citrus scents.
And few experiences give you that invigorating taste of freedom like traditional sailing. Breeze past dramatic fjord-like landscapes on the reliable winds that propel you across sapphire waters. Less experienced sailors can sail closer to the shores, finding shelter in the many beautiful bays along the way. A private superyacht charter through Turkey allows you to switch off from modern life and sink into the luxury and liberty of life on the ocean.
You will never be stuck for something to do on a superyacht charter in Turkey. Take advantage of the superb watersports conditions and windsurf by the cove of Alaçatı, where you can also relax and coast along the picturesque cobbled streets and waterfront promenade, sampling local wines and delectable delicacies. Idyllic coastal towns with charming local eateries and bars are scattered throughout the coastline.
Or, head to the town of Bodrum which provides a haven of recreation. Once a fishing village, it’s now a vibrant hotspot claiming to be the St. Tropez of Turkey. It’s clear to see why, as it’s frequented by glamorous Turks and international celebrities.
Recover from your carousal ashore with spa treatments in the dedicated facilities aboard your superyacht. Or, let us take you to sumptuous spa spots like Ece Saray Marina in the port of Fethiye where you can sink into a traditional Turkish bath in the marina’s spa. It’s the best of both worlds.
