Turquoise Coast, Turkey
The yacht we normally charter for our Turkey Private Journey is the Cavurali, a classic 65-foot, single masted gulet with beautiful handmade teak hull and decks and mahogany interiors. Smaller and more intimate than the gulets used on our group departures, it’s ideal for a journey with friends or family. (For groups of nine people or more, we charter a larger gulet.). The Cavurali features four comfortable cabins with private bathrooms (two cabins have single beds and two have double beds). Shaded fore and aft decks with sun mattresses provide plenty of space for outdoor dining and relaxing. The Cavurali is air conditioned, but we find many of our guests enjoy sleeping out on the deck under the stars. Two ocean kayaks (one single, one double) are available for exploring; snorkeling equipment and a sailboard are also provided. The food prepared and served on board features many local specialties, including fresh-caught seafood. To maximize time for exploration, we normally proceed under motor power, but when conditions permit, and at the captain’s discretion, sails will be raised. The Cavurali has a crew of three, including the captain.
