Crewed Charter Sailing Turkey

The Beneteau 57 is a Bruce Farr designed sloop
with fine lines and superbly crafted interior. The center of on-board activity is the large, cushioned, central cockpit which can seat eight for alfresco dining. An uncluttered quarterdeck offers ample room for sunbathing and, with retractable stairs, easy access to and from the sea. Beneteau 57's carry a full inventory of sails and were designed for easy handling by a crew of two. Under sail these powerful 57-footers set a new standard for crewed charter yachts. Below decks, exquisite detail has been so well conceived
as to compare with the craftsmanship of many semi-custom yards.

This twenty-first century yacht offers stylish accommodation for up to six guests in three well-appointed cabins each with en suite bathroom. There is a master cabin aft of the salon and galley, while forward of the salon are two identical cabins port and starboard each with double bed. In some Beneteau 57's this arrangement is reversed with the master cabin forward and double cabins aft. The crew is accommodated in a fourth en suite cabin opposite the galley.

Further information concerning Beneteaus sailing Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the blue links immediately above. Thank You. You must be searching for a crewed charter yacht sailing Turkey or Greece. Or you may be searching for a crewed charter yacht sailing Turkey and Greece. If so, you have come to the right place. This Beneteau 57 is not H.M.S. Pinafore, though she may be as entertaining. Neither is she Iolanthe the fairy princess, though she may be as charming. She is a fast and comfortable crewed charter yacht sailing Turkey Crewed Charters Sailing Greeceand Greece. As for rain, it falls mainly in both uplands and lowlands of Britain and not upon Aegean islands of Greece and not upon the Turquoise Coast of Turkey. At least not often during the sailing season. This Beneteau 57 does its sailing from April through October, skimming the coast of Turkey between pine-encircled bays and clear-water coves, between white-sand beaches and rustic villages. She also cruises azure sea lanes between sugar-cube encrusted Cyclades islands and between pastel-hued Dodecanese islands. Doing both, this fast Bruce Farr-designed yacht sails the crossroads of history, combining sun and exercise with archaeology and the story of four millennia from Bronze Age to Plutocracy at the End of a Gun Barrel. W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, it might be noted, began their collaboration in 1871 with Thespis, a musical dealing with Greek gods. Would you like to learn more about Greek gods? Well, some of them, those of interest to sailors, are thumb-nailed at Greek Gods To Know, a part of our sister site Aegean And Eastern Mediterranean Crewed Yacht Charters. Notable by his absence there is Ares, the god of war and model for Donald Rumsfeld. While Iolanthe was a fairy princess satirizing Britain's House of Lords, Cleopatra was a Crewed Charters Sailing Greece larger-than-life princess whose realm encompassed the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean. She and her Ptolemy forebears ruled these waters from shortly after Alexander to the coming of the Romans. Principal among Ptolemaic admirals was Artemidorus of Perge. Artemidorus of Perge is not to be confused with Artemidorus of Ephesus, a geographer who charted the sea around Turkey and Greece about one hundred years later. During the third century BC Artemidorus of Perge extended Egyptian rule beyond Santorini, where a monument (photo at right) to his achievements may be seen today at ancient Thera. Cleopatra thus came quite naturally to these waters. Perhaps you might like to trace Cleopatra's route, beginning at that same Perge just east of Antalya and continuing along the coasts of ancient Lycia and Caria, rounding the southwest corner of Turkey. Or perhaps trace Cleopatra's route among Greek Dodecanese islands. While you holiday. That's right, while you have a family holiday aboard a crewed yacht sailing just as did Cleopatra on her galley honeymoon with Marc Antony. Among other places visited, Cleopatra paused for weeks on the Dodecanese island of Kos. She Crewed Charters Sailing Greecealso paused at Cedrae about thirty miles east of Kos, there importing sand from North Africa for her swimming pleasure. Would you not like to have a family holiday sailing Cleopatra's route! Enjoying a similar swimming pleasure. Thereafter sailing north along the coast of ancient Ionia, a part of western Turkey, to Kusadasi and Ephesus, thence to Samos in the Greek Sporades. Just as did Cleopatra and Marc Antony. They paused for at least seven weeks in Samos. Some accounts make it seven months over the winter. Would you like to discover what it was they found so interesting? Try our Beneteau 57. She can take you to all of the stops along Cleopatra's route. Beyond Samos into the central Aegean, to Mykonos and Paros, to Milos and Kithera, to Kephalonia in the Ionian and on to Levkas and Preveza. It was at Preveza that Cleopatra's honeymoon came to an end. Preveza, you see, was then known as Actium. Do all of this and more aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show you the routes of Cleopatra and Artemidorus, a superb crewed Beneteau available for charter sailing in Turkey and Greece, available at Gocek which has also imported North African sand for one of its beaches (depicted at left).
