Private Yacht Charter: Sailing Yachts

Traditional yachts were sailed by wind power alone, but today with the accessibility of modern engines and mass production that has changed. We off plenty of options for a private sailing yacht charter  in which the boat will have an engine to aid navigation when the wind is low or while maneuvering in the harbor. 

Our fleet are specially designed to be of the highest luxury while providing an authentic time cruising along the coast. You can charter a sailboat with high-end cabins with generous space, with many offering facilities including entertainments in spacious saloons and cabins. The deck of our yachts will often have extra amenities that can include jacuzzi or jet skis or a zodiac. If you’d like to have your own boat, but still sail with a group of people you can join a flotilla. This is essentially a line of boats following a “leader” sailboat from one location to another. Flotilla sailing is popular in Turkey, Croatia, and other Mediterranean countries.


Most people choose to take chartered sailboats with a full crew, but there is another way you can sail. For those who know how to captain a boat and have a license, you are welcome to rent a sailing boat as a bareboat sail charter. This way you are able to take the boat out on your own, save money, and have full privacy onboard. But please, for bareboating and cruising, experienced sailors only!

Whether you are looking for bareboat sailing charters in Turkey or a fully crewed chartered sailboat vacation, Alaturka has options for you.
