The Carian Coast, Turkey Yacht Charter

The Carian Coast is the coastal area between the famous yachting havens of Bodrum and Marmaris in Turkey in the Mediterranean Sea – an ideal location for a Carian yacht charter. With an extensive selection of luxury Turkish Gullets, motor yachts, sailing yachts and an ever increasing fleet of Super Yachts (luxury yachts) this stunning location has everything to offer those looking for a luxury Mediterranean yacht charter. Few countries in the world have such a cultural diversity as Turkey.

Spanning over two continents and combining the East, the West and the Orient of today with the ancient Byzantine, Ottoman, Roman and Persian empires, Turkey stands in a class of its own. A beautiful coastline, friendly people, good fresh foods and delicious local wines that could easily compete against many European vineyards, make it the perfect place to enjoy a luxury private charter in the Mediterranean.

The Carian Coasts lively ports are easily accessible from the local airports of Bodrum and Dalaman or by ferry from the Dodecanese islands of Rhodes and Kos in Greece. These bustling seaside towns offer charterers the chance to shop for souvenirs such as gold, leather goods, handmade carpets and beautiful hand painted Turkish pottery before setting sail on a luxury yacht to enjoy the Carian Coasts beautiful turquoise waters.

This magnificent coast line is caressed by gentle breezes and smooth sailing conditions from May until late October. Featuring one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World, and a few more only a day trip away, history buffs will delight in the ancient ruins and tombs carved into rock faces, which are easily accessible during a week aboard a luxury yacht in Turkey.

Jutting into the Aegean, the Bodrum Peninsula lies between the Turkish town of Kusadasi and Marmaris, opposite the Greek island of Kos. Development of this area is carefully monitored by the local authorities and as a result much of the peninsula retains its natural charm. That being said, Bodrum and its surrounding provinces such as Golturkbuku, Yalikavak, Gumbet, Turgutreis, Bitez, Ortakent and GundoganIt still attracts a chic local clientele from Istanbul giving it a feel of the French Riviera with a Eastern twist. The cuisine, the bazaars and the hammams are oriental; the culture is an easygoing variety of Islamic: the result is an intriguing mix of mosques and bikini-lifestyle which is unique to this part of the world.

After the excitement and pace of Bodrum you can look forward to unwinding on your luxury yacht and taking a few days to explore the Datca Peninsula. The Datca Peninsula, unspoiled by mass tourism, is a long, narrow, mountainous finger of land that stretches west of Marmaris for about 100km. It separates the Mediterranean and Aegean seas, offering unspoiled natural beauty and beautiful crystal clear waters. A traditional Gullet cruise or a luxury yacht charter is the perfect way to explore the many beautiful bays this area is famous for.

Set against a backdrop of pine clad hills, Marmaris is a resort that combines natural beauty with a modern, lively seaside resort town. Famed for its nightlife, the most extravagant on the entire South coast, this developed resort offers visitors the best of both worlds – a lively restaurant and bar scene as well as the surrounding areas natural beauty and cultural activities.

Marmaris has many fabulous seaside restaurants offering fresh local produce prepared by some of Turkeys most talented chefs and a lively club and bar scene catering to the chic tourists visiting from all over the world. During your luxury yacht charter you will also have a chance to explore the beautiful surrounding countryside which features stunning beaches, ancient ruins and quaint villages.

The best time for Carian coast yacht charter is from May to October. Peak season and the busiest months are July and August.

We recommend booking early to secure the best yacht, Luxury Gullet or Luxury Super yacht over these months with your CharterWorld Consultant.
