Embrace your seafaring spirit and discover exquisite scenery, ancient ruins and lively culture on a Turkey luxury yacht charter along the Turkish Riviera, also known as the Turquoise Coast. Below is a selection of the best holiday spots for yacht charter in Turkey, providing family-friendly attractions, vibrant shopping opportunities and nightlife, and amazing spots for Scuba diving and other water sports.
Gulets are the traditional sailing yacht of Turkey and are a favourite for wedding charters and other special events, where massive feasts are held on deck in idyllic surrounds. Catamarans and mono-hulled motor yachts are available in a range of sizes to suit your budget and the size of your group, and modern vessels over 30m/98ft often have a Jacuzzi, wet bar and large collection of water toys at your disposal.
Free to roam wherever you please in this Eastern Mediterranean cruising ground, discover the grottoes, sunken cities and amazing marine life before settling onto a golden sand beach along the aptly named Turquoise Coast.
Not only is there an extensive collection of museums and galleries for modern and antediluvian culture, the hammams are an opportunity to experience the popular spa treatment at its most authentic.
If you want more of a local flavour, take a walk though Tarihi Hahn where the collection of little shops, cafes and bars forms this ancient bazaar. Go bargain hunting for accessories and souvenirs, then relax harbourside or pop back on board your yacht in the adjacent marina to dine and freshen up before a night of entertainment.
The curving coastline serves up a choice of bays and coves – some with sandy beaches – for you to anchor and spend the night away from the bustle of the city. Swim, snorkel and Scuba dive with confidence in the clear blue water. More experienced divers have enticing caves, wrecks and reefs to explore at their leisure.
Bodrum is ideally situated close to the Dodecanese Islands, so if you want to cruise west from the Turquoise Coast or come from sampling ouzo and tapas on Kos, then Bodrum is an ideal addition to your itinerary.
On your way from Bodrum to Marmaris, stretch your legs at Cape Deveboynu for a look at the ancient ruins of Knidos and the gorgeous scenery. The bay around here will tempt you in for a swim before you watch the sunset and dine under night skies that sparkle as much as the sea.
Marmaris might have once been a quiet fishing village, but today it is a vibrant tourist destination with bars, clubs and restaurants to entertain after sundown. While the sun is high in the sky, explore the local bazaar and shops, visit the beautiful Marmaris Castle and museum and stroll through the massive Marmaris National Park.
A haven for yacht charters, Goceck and the surrounding area to the south offers a winding coastline and various islands for isolated beaches, verdant anchorages and ideal spots for watersports.
It’s all about life on the water around this part of the coast: Whether you’re a seasoned Scuba diver or just learning about the sport, Fethiye has an abundance of sites to tempt you day after day back under the sea. More experienced divers have a choice of wrecks, caverns tunnels and Akfule – also known as Aladdin’s Cavern – to satisfy your underwater wanderlust. The shallows are mesmerising as well, with reefs and a seabed of relics awaiting snorkellers and swimmers alike.
Lycian ruins are carved into the cliffs around this section of the Turkish Riviera, and charter groups interested in history should take some time to walk around the Ancient City of Telmessos and the Amyntas Rock Tombs as well as Fethiye castle and the museums.
Similar to Fethiye, Ölüdeniz is a wonderful place for swimming, snorkelling and Scuba diving with the chance to encounter turtles and dolphins during your stay. In addition to the great beaches and clear blue sea, Ölüdeniz has trails through forest-covered hills, the most impressive being the start of the Lycian Way. This 500km (310 mile) path follows the coast almost all the way to Antalya. It’s possible to do small stretches and have your yacht meet you farther along the coast.
One of the most stunning beaches along the Turquoise Coast is to be found the moment you enter Antalya province from the west: Patara Beach. The soft sands stretch for miles and offer a protected section for the loggerhead turtles that visit to lay eggs. A short walk from the shoreline and you will be amongst the ancient ruins of Patara, where there is a Roman theatre, a basilica, hammams and more.
As you cruise east, there is a blue grotto and Lycian Tomb at the Greek island of Kastellorizo, but the best is yet to come. Breath-taking Kekova Island sets the scene for your own adventure exploring the Sunken City of Kekova. Bring your snorkelling or Scuba diving gear to see under the water and observe the sea life that has now taken up residence in these ruins along the shore.
The Lycian Civilisation Museum and the ancient city of Andriake are a short cruise away at Demre on the mainland, and the highlight of the Turquoise Coast – pristine beaches and tranquil anchorages surrounded by countryside – are numerous on your approach to the seaside city of Antalya. Be sure to spend a day in one of these quiet coves fishing, kayaking, snorkelling or simply lounging about on the inflatables while the marine life glides through the bright blue sea.
Antalya is a sprawling city that has several beaches and parks interspersed by cafes along its waterfront, and child-friendly attractions such as the Aktur Lunapark, sand sculptures at Sandland, and the Antalya Aquarium. Düden Park and the Düden Waterfalls are perhaps the most famous scenic sight in the city, and make an ideal place to go for a stroll and capture the moment on camera with family and friends.
The Old Town is situated beside the Kaleiçi Marina and boasts many a museum and ancient monument, including an ancient Roman bathhouse, hammams and Hadrian’s Gate. The bars and clubs have your night-time entertainment sorted, or you can catch a concert or show at the Konyaalti Open Air Theatre.
Alanya is the last impressive destination and the farthest east along the Turkish Riviera, but it’s the small stops you make along the way that really make up the adventure.
Side, a city once famous for its role in slave trading, is now a far more peaceful place to set foot. Walk among the myriad ruins to work up your appetite before lunch, then sunbathe back on board or find your own spot on one of the beaches that stretch for miles.
When you reach Alanya, the cape is the highlight. The walk will take you to the Red Tower and its museum within, the Seljuk era Alanya Castle and panoramic views of the city below. A grotto accessible by water is concealed on the southeastern side, while the western side has the Damlataş Cave, made famous for its supposed healing properties, particularly for asthma sufferers.
Alanya has a reputation for an active lifestyle, and during your visit there is the opportunity to go tandem paragliding, rafting, Scuba diving around ancient sites and horse riding along the coast. After all these activities, make time for some pampering in one of the Turkish baths and spas, then return for a sunset meal aboard your luxury yacht.
This 24m/78ft luxury yacht is ideal for families and small groups of friends to head off and encounter the colourful occupants of the massive coral reefs, swim around the Museum of Underwater Art and find remote beaches for sunbathing on the sands, dinner on the shore by candlelight and parties under the stars.
The Whitsundays Islands have gorgeous white sands, clear blue water and plenty of fine weather for lazy days resting and reading in the shade or chatting over a cocktail. On board, there is a choice of indoor and outdoor dining areas, plus plenty of sunpads and drinks tables to admire the vibrant sunset and untouched splendour of your anchorage.
The selection of water toys is ideal for families and friend groups looking to explore the mesmerising world above and below the water: More information on the latest complement is available upon request.
The accommodation sleeps up to 6 guests across 3 en-suite cabins, with a professional crew of 2 to provide fast and discreet service throughout the cruise.
Rossinavi has unveiled a new cutting-edge eco-friendly catamaran yacht concept designed by Zaha Hadid Architects: Luxury yacht ONEIRIC.
Rossinavi and Zaha Hadid Architects are ready to usher in a new age of exploration, without leaving a trace of a carbon footprint behind: Three levels of solar panels charge the battery pack during the day for fully-electric navigation, and an AI-managed control centre will monitor and adjust energy consumption to ensure a low environmental impact.
For day trips, M/Y ONEIRIC can cruise 100% of the time in full-electric mode with zero emissions, while transatlantic crossings can be completed in a full-electric mode for 70% per cent of the journey. This creates a saving of approximately 40 tonnes of CO2 compared to a conventional vessel. As such, it’s the perfect vessel for families to charter over great distances at destinations such as the Western Mediterranean or the Caribbean without the worry of accounting for fuel.
Furthermore, the full-electric mode is capable of silent operations using Rossinavi Zero Noise technology, which has been installed on all Rossinavi vessels for several years and is even more efficient aboard electric-mode vessels.
When it comes to appearance the exterior is immediately eye-catching: Sweeping curves join the hull to the superstructure at the stern and flow seamlessly into other structures such as the communications mast. Stairways from the lower deck sweep up to the main deck aft, and subtle lighting adds a homely glow after dark. The main deck has a pool aft along with plenty of space to lounge and sunbathe. The flybridge creates a wonderful alternative with plush seating, dining facilities and a bar.
Measuring 44m/144.4ft with a broad beam of 13.8m/45.1ft, the Owner and guests will have an abundance of space to spend their days as they please aboard superyacht ONEIRIC. Despite her size, the aluminium hull and superstructure ensure that she has a shallow draft of 2m/6.7ft, granting access to some of the best anchorages in destinations such as the Bahamas and Maldives charter grounds.
The interior boasts a massive open-plan lounge with a dining area and wet bar for the perfect entertainment area, regardless of what the weather is doing. A futuristic appearance is created through large lighting fixtures that lie flush with the ceiling, curving furniture that follows the shape of the room, and a minimalist environment ready to serve its occupants. Elsewhere on board, the media room is furnished for sitting or lying back and watching a film together and can be used as a quiet space to read or simply watch the world go by.
The accommodation is designed for up to 10 guests across 1 Master suite and 4 further well-proportioned guest cabins. Of note is the Master Suite, which has room for its own seating area, and 180-degree views in addition to skylights that create a bright environment connected to the natural world. Direct access to the foredeck with retractable shade is an added convenience that is sure to see frequent use.
Luxury catamaran ONEIRIC will surely turn dreams of eco-friendly cruising around the world for Owners and charterers into a reality.
If you’ve ever wanted to see polar bears and arctic foxes in their natural environment, kayak amongst stunning fjords and trek along coastal trails under the Midnight Sun, then a luxury yacht charter with expedition yacht GREY WOLF will satisfy what you crave.

Inside, the climate-controlled contemporary interiors provide a homely environment and ensure that guests have terrific views of the location through large glass windows on all sides. A pop-up widescreen TV is available for entertainment during the cruise, and the chef will create an amazing selection of meals, snacks and cocktails to satisfy your tastebuds.

Designed and built by Scottish architect William Fife in 1914, 35m/115t sailing yacht MOONBEAM IV was constructed with a teak wood hull and superstructure, both of which required stripping back and replacing in some sections.
The work took place at Brest between November 2021 and May 2022, where JFA Yachts worked with expert naval carpentry shipyard Hubert Stagnol to strip and overhaul the hull, giving her a new topcoat of ‘Vanilla White’, which was then followed up with an Awlgrip topcoat.
JFA Yachts’ carpenters restored the skylights, while Hubert Stagnol’s carpenters sanded and revarnished the bulwarks and Oregon pine rig. The head mast was replaced, and mechanical maintenance was completed before S/Y received new sails with her characteristic number 8, followed up by tests.
Now that MOONBEAM IV has proven her readiness to return to the sea, she will be cruising to Scotland to take part in the Fife Regatta, running 10-17 June 2022 in Fairlie.
