Our Cabin Charter Itineraries
about the Blue Cruise
A complete boat can be yours, just
put a group together and you are
among your friends and the only one
on a traditional wooden Gullet. Such
a trip is also a good idea for clubs
and other parties. From 10 persons
onward we reserve a boat for you and
suggest the best itinerary.
on Standard Gulets
This is the cabin charter for those who are after
something a little more special.
On board service is of a high standard and the yacht
is equipped for both relaxation and leisure
This itinerary starts and finishes in Fethiye.
Suggested Airport: Dalaman, Turkey.
Itinerary: Fethiye – Hafen Aga -Göcek - Kaunos - Ekincik -
Fethiye ... more
The little town of Fethiye, on the eastern shore
of the gulf to which it gives its name, was once
the Lycian city of Telmessus whose history can be
traced at least as far back as the fifth century
B.C.. There are strong indications, however, that
the Lycians were the Lukka people referred to in
Hittite records as early as the 14th century B.C..
Wars and invasions - especially Arab raids from
which the city never quite recovered - and
earthquakes of more recent times have left little
for us to see of this ancient civilization except
the imposing Lycian tombs carved into solid rock.
Today Fethiye is a small town with a character
that is more Anatolian than most other coastal
towns, but tourism is slowly changing the scene.
GOCEK, located at the north extremity of the
Gulf of Fethiye, is a popular yachting center due to
the proximity of the international airport in
Dalaman, Gocek's three marinas,
the variety of provisioning its shops offer and
the numerous restaurants - not to mention the
wonderful waters and shoreline of the gulf - still
makes it a preferred anchorage when cruising in
the region. There are no significant historical
sites nearby, but the natural beauty of the many
anchorages all around, including the lovely
scattering of islands, is breathtaking. In these
quiet spots, like in other coves located far from
the lights of cities, the brilliantly starlit
night sky is a source of incredulous wonder.
MARMARIS Known to the ancients as Physcus,
today's Marmaris is a bustling tourist resort with
the largest yacht marina in the Eastern
Mediterranean. The entrance to the bay on which it
lies is narrow, so when viewed from the town the
bay has the appearance of a lake and departing
boats seem to disappear into the mountains. Its
lively night scene and good shopping opportunities
make Marmaris one of the favorite stops of a
yachting cruise. The walls of its old castle
enclose the Old Town with lovely crooked narrow
streets and marvellous views. In 1522 the Ottoman
Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent embarked his
troops here for his conquest of the island of
Rhodes then held by the Knights of St. John.
Nothing remains today to remind us of this event
and the boats that sail between Marmaris and
Rhodes carry not soldiers but holidaymakers and
may it always be so.

place on Standard-Yachts, the traditional
Bodrum-built GULET. All yachts are between 19 - 25
meters length, these vessels accommodate between 12
and 16 guests in 6 to 8 cabins. The

air condition. Crew consists of a captain, cook

An exact yacht’s name can
not be available until 1 or 2 days before

late. This works well over the years like a
cooperative and we advice you to give us your
mobile phone that we stay in contact to give you
captain's number and boat name.
The crew aboard our Gulets and yachts often do not
have a foreign language mastered, but they almost
always know a few ’every-day’ phrases and are able
to understand almost all requests.
