Marinas in Turkey

Shipping my 46ft Najad to Turkey this spring and looking for recommendations for a marina to base her for twelve months. Ideally nice place, reasonable access to airport for flights to UK and not too expensive.

Re: Marinas in Turkey

The best location, regarding your expectations, would be Göcek. Very nice location, with a few good marinas, 30 min to airport (Dalaman). But for the prices, difficult to say "not expensive";you should contact the marina offices one by one...

Marmaris is nice. Netsel Marina there is in the centre of the old town and very nice.

Re: Marinas in Turkey

Marmaris Yacht Marina is probably the cheapest if wanting to fly in and out of Dalaman. They insist that you must be haul out for a minimum of 2 months. We have a 6 in 6 out deal for Euro 2800. Boat is 40 feet. I have heard Finike is better but we like being able to cruise Greece as well so Marmaris works for us.

Ece Saray Marina in Fethiye. As close to Dalaman airport as is Marmaris. Better protected weather-wise than either Marmaris or Gocek, in our experience.

Re: Marinas in Turkey

Yatmarin can be the cheapest or the most expensive, or in between,. The same day they might have a berth or if someone calls 5 min later, they might not have. Even sometimes two months berthing can be cheaper than one month berthing..They must have a very special pricing system that I am trying to figure out
But generally speaking, they should be cheaper than Netsel in the city center and definately cheaper than almost any marina in Göçek area.
Cheers

Re: Marinas in Turkey

It's a trade-off between convenience and price. We used Kusadasi Marina (Kusadasi - a Cruising Guide on the World Cruising and Sailing Wiki) for a number of years. It was the cheapest of the Setur Group marinas at the time, very safe and the only slight drawback was the 40-minute taxi trip to Izmir airport. It was, however, very well situated for cruising both the N. Aegean, Dodecanese and Cyclades and the Turkish coast from Istanbul to Antalya.

Since we left, Easyjet now fly regularly to Izmir from Gatwick (twice a week in low season and four times a week in high season).

Yes, Yat Marine is cheaper than Netsel, but its 1/2 hour bus trip to Marmaris. Netsel, as you point out, is right in the heart of town... A quick stagger from the bars, restaurants and night life.
I dont know what time the bus stops running at night but it must be early as theres nothing else out there.

But Yat Marine does have a larger cruiser community..... Perhaps a look at both marinas to see which a person prefers?
