Managed by Camper and Nicholsons Marinas and positioned in the enchanting Eastern Mediterranean yacht charter destination – Turkey, Çeşme Marina has received the 2014 PIANC Marina Excellence Design Jack Nichol Award, once again demonstrating its right to be counted among the world’s best yachting facilities.

The judges scored Çeşme Marina highly on functionality, aesthetics, performance and environmental sustainability, and added this award to a string of previous accolades including Best Tourism Investment (2012), Best Marina (2011) and Best Architectural Project (2010).

Why Çesme Marina?
Çesme Marina’s superior shore-side facilities attract an increasingly international yachting clientele. The development offers every possible amenity, from cafés, fine-dining restaurants, chic bars and designer boutiques to a sailing school, swimming pool, spa and fitness centre, car rental, technology centre, children’s entertainment centre and much more.

Berthing here…
Çeşme Marina offers 400 fully serviced berths for yachts from 8m to 60m LOA, with 24-hour berthing assistance and a new breakwater extension, and the extended season offers excellent charter opportunities for owners seeking a second revenue stream. There is a concierge service, 24-hour CCTV, marina-wide Wi-Fi, a chandlery, power supply up to 400A, grey/black water pump-out, on-site yacht provisioning, fresh water and a fuel berth.

Right here…
Çeşme Marina has been sensitively integrated into a historic maritime city in a largely undiscovered, chic part of Turkey’s most westerly coastline — the ideal spot from which to explore the Aegean Sea. Designed in classic Aegean style with pretty pan-tiled roofs, this beautiful shoreside marina village offers something for everyone. Local attractions (under 10 minutes away) include the thermal pools and spa at Ilica and the old city and castle of Çeşme itself.

A short drive from here…
A must-see is the ancient city of Ephesus, just an hour’s drive away — the most outstanding and plentiful Roman remains in the Eastern Mediterranean. 45 minutes away is Izmir, Turkey’s cosmopolitan third-largest city; a laid-back, liberal and cultural city which hosts an International Arts Festival in June. Don’t forget to stop for a cup of traditional Turkish coffee amid the hustle and bustle of Izmir’s Kemeralti Bazaar.

Sailing from here…
A gateway to the Aegean Sea, Çesme Marina makes an ideal base for exploring the nearby Greek islands of Chios, Samos and Lesvos, plus around 300 other islands. Prevailing northerly winds during the summer make for ideal sailing conditions, with warm breezes and constant sunshine well into the autumn months.

Getting here…
The marina is just 45 minutes’ drive along the new four-lane O-32 highway from Izmir international airport, which offers direct connections to many European cities.
