Boat rentals in Turkey
Turkey is a magical country with one foot in Europe and the other one in Asia. Its cultural traditions date back to thousands of years, thanks to which there are many attractions and architectural wonders for all those who choose to rent a boat in Turkey.
Pick-up and return of chartered ships in Turkey:
Political and demographic changes in recent years have caused serious damage to the region’s tourism, so the number of charter yachts in Turkey has significantly declined.
Like in other European countries, the pick-up and return of charter boats in Turkey is usually done every Saturday, but due to the drop in demand chartering is more flexible now, more tailored to your individual needs than in any other European country.
Rentable boats in Turkey:
With the decline in tourism, the number of chartered boats in Turkey has also declined.
A number of charter companies moved part of their fleet to the Adriatic Sea, and there was a drastic reduction in Turkey particularly in the number of catamaran charters. With the decline in demand, there was a proportional decrease in boat rental fees. In Turkey, rental fees of sailboats ( sailing yachts ) and catamarans currently are 20% -30% lower than in Croatia. Nowadays, boat rental fees in Turkey are the lowest in the world, and because of low-cost air tickets you can sail around the Turkish coasts aboard the newest yachts for as low as €400/person/week even in high season. Luxury yacht charter in Turkey is very popular, countless gulet-type boats offer all-inclusive services and unique amenities for those seeking relaxation.
Gulet rental rates are much higher than those of normal charter boats, but some types of boats can accommodate even 20 to 30 people.
