Ahhhh, yachts!

Who doesn’t love yachts? Everyone loves yachts. Even those who have never swam on them, love them a priori. Turkey is the best country to relax in all respects, especially during the summer holidays. Tired of lying on the beach? Welcome aboard the manoeuvrable and comfortable ships from Hatsail! Cruises in the Aegean and Mediterranean seas can be carried out on four Yakh-tah with “star” names: Aldebaran, Altair, Sirius and Rigel. Designed for 10-12 people each, they are equipped with the latest technology and design. These vessels are organized 7-10 day tours with visiting the most beautiful bays of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas: Gocek, Ekincik, Oludeniz, Fethiye, Kas and Kalkan. The Aldebaran and Altair yachts were launched in the summer of 1992. They are equipped with cabins of increased comfort. The master cabins, located in the bow and aft of the ship, have Deluxe baths. Four double cabins are decorated with mahogany and equipped with private bathrooms and air conditioning. In the bow is the so-called bow cabin, and at the helm — aft cabin with mahogany trim. In the aft cabin, a company of 12 passengers can enjoy a meal, watch TV, listen to music. The wide Windows offer peaceful seascapes. The main saloon opens onto the aft deck where guests can dine al fresco at the mahogany table. Here you can comfortably sit on the sofa and sunbathe. On all sails of the Yacht Sirius and Rigel, launched in the summer of 1994 in Istanbul, designed specifically for the local seas and also equipped to the highest standard. These yachts are slightly smaller — they can accommodate 10 passengers. Masts with a height of 26 meters and a sail area of 368 square meters provide ships high speed, and a modern navigation system and means of communication guarantee the safety of cruises. Like Aldebaran and Altair, the cabins on Sirius and Rigel are decorated with mahogany and equipped with bathrooms and air conditioning. What to do during the cruise and how does such a marine leisure in Turkey look like in General? Pitching to fear is unlikely — the day the boat is only four hours. This is enough to enjoy the change of scenery and travel on the water. Activities such as diving, Snorkelling and Windsurfing are also available on Board. There are on the ships and water skiing, and banana, and fishing equipment. The price includes three meals a day (Mediterranean cuisine), local soft drinks, tea, coffee. Scheduled Tours are designed for a week, but at the request of tourists they can be extended to ten days. That’s one of the routes that starts with a visit to the village of Gocek reserve and sailing centre. Gocek is a half hour drive from Dalaman airport. The whole first day of the trip you will spend in places where, according to legend, Icarus landed after his flight to the sun. The village of Gocek located in a small valley, surrounded on all sides by mountains and protected sea harbour, so popular with boaters world level. You will spend the night on the island of the same name. On the second day after Breakfast the yacht will travel to the Bay of Ekincik. This secluded Bay is an ideal place for water sports. From here starts a boat tour to the ancient city of Kaunos. The famous sea turtles Caretta-Caretta live in these waters. After wandering among the ruins of the ancient city, ancient tombs and amphitheaters, you will work up an appetite and, returning to the yacht, you can enjoy a great dinner. On the third day the yacht will sail to the West, to Sandy Bay, the name of which in Turkish sounds very comical, Kumlubuku. And it is called so because it is a long sandy beach surrounded by mountains and coniferous forest. Nearby Loryma — the ancient city with the remains of a vast fortress, built in 430 BC, the Fourth day begins with a visit to the Bay with an equally fun name — Kecibuku. This is a real Aegean idyll — mountains with fir forests and an island with the remains of a Byzantine defensive fortress. Here is an authentic village atmosphere with an excellent restaurant. On the fifth day of the cruise, after visiting the antiquities, you can go shopping in a small town called datcha, which is famous for handmade carpets. After lunch, the captain will head for Knidos, to the ruins of the ancient city, and you will return to Datcha for the night. On the East of the Datca harbour is located Setron where and will follow the yacht on the sixth day of the trip. This is not even a Harbor, but a real closed fjord, which is why this place is ideal for swimming. In the afternoon you will find Marmaris — one of the most famous resorts and yacht centers of Turkey. The seventh day you will devote to rest, swimming and water sports. What else to do in Cleopatra Bay, Paradise, where, according to legend, the Queen was hiding with her beloved mark Anthony? On the eighth day you will return to Gocek, where after Breakfast you will travel to Dalaman airport. Supernova Sails, the opportunity in a short period to see a lot of hard-to-land charming natural corners and incredible romance of sea travel… From the water Turkey opens in a new way. Only the usual amenities, the sun, clean water and good food. In short, you will once again see that Turkey is not a country, but a star, and a supernova.
