Motor yacht HALAS


Her delivery was withheld by the British Government when she was requisitioned into service as the service ship ‘Waterwitch’ in World War 1. In 1918, she arrived in Turkish waters and in 1923 her name was officially changed to Halas, meaning deliverance. She remained as a passenger ferry on the Bosphorus until 1984, accommodating up to 1053 people. She was then purchased as a luxury private cruising yacht and refitted, with a further refit in 2010. Motor yacht HALAS can now accommodate up to 24 yacht charter guests, in 12 double cabins. She now charters around Istanbul and along with Southern Western Coastline of Turkey.
