Chartering in Turkiye: feedback we just have to share

Posted In: Charter Sailing Holiday Destination Guides , Turkey

We have received a glowing report from a group recently returned from chartering a 2022 Elba 45 catamaran out of Fethiye, Turkey. Turkey is one of those charter destinations that we know won't fail to pleasantly surprise. So we're always delighted when we receive such good reports as we did recently from our New Zealand client Lou. Here it is in its entirety, including images supplied.

If you'd like to experience the delights of a sailing holiday in Turkiye, get in touch with us at Sail Connections. 

Hi Sue,

They were absolutely suberp! Thanks Robert for our best yacht ever! Omar who runs the show was excellent. We couldn't fault anything.

Anchorages were superb. Place is just so cheap with lira in free fall. Beer $2 a 500ml can.

Everyday the wind comes up at 1pm and dies by 7pm so decent sailing a big cat at 10 knots .

Boat had everything you needed... icemaker fantastic! We didn't use air con as cool in evening and hot in day. Sea temp was 24 degrees so lovely swimming. Historic sites are a really neat addition. Some superb restaurants just built for yachts with fantastic food.

Easy to get freshwater just about everywhere.

Turkiye is incredible sailing and anchorages so scenic. Fethiye really works well with supermarket 400m from boat plus free swimming pool and wifi.

Fantastic job Sue and Robert!
