Why should you go on a sailing trip?
That’s a question most people who have not experienced sailing have in mind. For one, there are many places that cannot be reached by land or air travel and the only feasible option is to go by sea. Sailing appeals to most adventurous individuals- imagine all the new places that you can explore, the people that you will meet once you are moored on the bay, as well as the food and the culture that you will sample and see in your destination. You can find the fun in sailing not only when you reach your destination but in the journey as well. You can go swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, or just lounge in the sundeck aboard en route to your next stop. Also, compared to a long land trip where you will be cramped inside a vehicle for hours, a sailing trip is relaxing and leisurely. Think of sailing as a way of taking luxury to the outdoors – like bringing your big screen TV on a camping trip.
Chartering a private yacht is perfect for sharing good times with people you love. AlaTurka’s biggest gulet, the Pinar 111, can accommodate up to 32 people. The size is great for celebrations with family, friends, or colleagues. Everyone can hang out and relax on deck while cruising. There are also smaller gulets that suit honeymoon or anniversary trips for couples or for small families. Couples can spend the night having a wonderful dinner under the stars.
Turkey is bounded by the Black Sea in the north, the Aegean Sea in the west, and the Mediterranean Sea in the south. This makes southwestern Turkey, as well as Greece, an ideal destination for a sailing holiday. There are plenty of impressive bays and coastlines in Turkey and deciding on a sailing route is not an easy thing to do. Some of the things that you need to consider are the sailing duration and the activities that you want to do. Do you want to go swimming in beaches or to anchor in secluded bays? Do you want to have sailing stops in historical sites? Do you want to spend the night onboard or checkout the nightlife? You can come up with your own customised route but if you need help in choosing, AlaTurka has suggested itineraries for Turkey and Greece ranging from 4 days to 1 week to help you get started. AlaTurka has many years of sailing experience in this region and will be able to guide you in identifying the suitable route for you.
In selecting the yacht, you can choose the yacht class – the budget-friendly Standard class with all the basic amenities, the Mid-Range class, the Deluxe class, the Luxury class, and the VIP class with its five-star service. Depending on your preference, the yachts can come equipped with board games, a jacuzzi, a kayak, diving equipment, as well as snorkelling and fishing gear. If you can sail and can manage the boat without a skipper or crew members, you can go for the bareboat option with smaller sailing yachts.
The choices are endless when it comes to a private yacht charter in Turkey. Visit AlaTurka Yachting to learn more about the chartered yachts or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your options with one of our experienced staff.
