A Yacht charter in Marmaris is the ideal sailing option for someone seeking great sailing conditions, with plenty of sunshine, good winds and welcoming waves. At the heart of this yachtsman’s favourite sailing ground sits Marmaris. Marmaris is one of Turkey's Premier holiday resorts and a beautiful sea-side town. The old town consists of white-washed houses and charming little streets, leading up to the famous Turkish bazaars. From Marmaris, you can either head East, towards Gocek and the Gulf of Fethiye or West to explore the Bozburun peninsula.

There are several start-point marinas in Marmaris, all server by the international airports of Bodrum and Dalaman. Dalaman airport should be your first choice, as there are many direct flights from the UK (London and Manchester); it is also the closest one.
Transfers can be arranged upon request from both airports.
Transfer Time (Bodrum Airport): 2 hours
Transfer Time (Dalaman Airport): 1 hour
In regards to sailing conditions, there are great offshore NW winds (15-20 Kn) throughout the season. As in all Mediterranean destinations, there are no tides. Local weather phenomena that you need to watch out for is the “Meltemi” picking up in the morning up to late afternoon/ evening (Force 3-5 during summer). Note though that the area around Marmaris is considered much more protected than the Cyclades in Greece. The average summer temperature is 27°C.
The official currency is the Turkish Lira. Some places also accept Euros and USD, however, we do advise that you use Turkish Liras, as the exchange rate offered is often not favourable. Many shops and restaurants also accept credit cards.
This area is full of historical sights as well; On Ephesus, Caunus, and Pergamos you can see ruins ranging from the proto-Greek period to the Byzantine period.
Due to the stronger winds, especially during July and August, we recommend Marmaris to more experienced sailors.
