Another vote for Yacht Marine near Marmaris.
Whilst I tend to do my own work, I have had a couple of small jobs and know friends who've had larger stuff, overseen by an on-site Company called 'Mavimar', though I'm afraid I've no contact details. My understanding is that they don't carry out work themselves, but just use the various local contractors; they offset most/all of their 'fee' by securing better prices from the contractors than you could get as an individual, so it doesn't cost a shed-load more either.

Hi Belithb,

I own a charter company in Marmaris in a private marina (Albatros) and we are specialised in the work (actually far beyond it..) that you are looking for.
We have a limited berth, thus, normally don't take boats solely for wintering unless they need a special care and or major refit, etc. but if you didn't decide yet, send me a note, I can help you.
Cheers
Yeloya

NB.Donradcliffe: yr note is not only unpolite but also insulting. I cannot comment about Greece but Turkey is currently the 3rd manufacturer in the world for mega yatches production and well known with the quality of her job. Like everywhere, you may get wrong people but generalising this way is a shame..The price/quality ratio in Turkey is among the best one can get.

Yeloya, I probably should have said that there are almost no places in the world that I would trust to do boatwork without supervision, and Turkey is no exception.

I watched a boat being painted in a yard in Marmaris. They did a shoddy job, and tried to coverup by extensive buffing, which ruins the Awlgrip. The boat was picked up by a delivery crew, so the owner never had a chance to see the results until the boat was a thousand miles away.

I had a peel and epoxy osmosis job done in Turkey, which took 10 months and cost 5000 euro. Two years later, I had blisters again.

I had a new babystay fabricated in Turkey. It broke two years later.

As far as quality for money, Turkey cannot hold a candle to Thailand for boatwork--but I wouldn't trust the Thai's to work unsupervised either.

This sounds better

What I am saying is that we should stay away from generalisations: there are good people, good work anywhere as well as worse people and worse work anywhere.
You say Tailand is the best. Prout should have thought the same,hence, started manufacturing their catamarans there. I had a beer last week with a skipper of Prout 72 catamaran made in Tailand. I can't tell you the whole story, but in short, the boat fell apart in the first part of the delivery to Singapour. The owner had to send it to Marmaris by a container ship because everybody agreed soon that she could not do it to Marmaris.. I've seen the boat, workmanship was horrible. You can of course blame the manufacturer but I still have some doubts about Thai workmanship.

The yatch work is a delicate work and unfortunately there are many people all around the world (not only in Turkey or Greece) who doesn't have the skill, professionality to do the job.. Even worse, horrible prices are being charged regardless the quality of the job.
Supervision can reduce the risk but doesn't fully eliminate them. The key is to find right people, reputable companies, see their references and decide accordingly.

Cheers

Yeloya

Re: Wintering + Repairs in Turkey - Trusted Boatyard ?

Multihull Hauling. AGANLAR SHIPYARD. BODRUM




This particularly good familly run business, is located only a few miles of Bodrum Castle.
They have a friendly staff, with modern office and everything you need to haul your boat.
Two travelifts one of 100 Tn and another of 450 Tn.

The boats are very well treated when are hauled. The crystal clear waters make easy the inspection of the hull. New works are made on the dry storage area. Prices are very reasonable.
They have also the possibility to keep the boat on the water with all the faccilities. This is the web.

You could always speak to some of the folk that run the Charter fleets. They get a LOT of work done locally, so should be able to tell you who can do good work etc....

PT.

Haven't been there to see it yet but I've head good things about AGANLAR. If you are looking a place near Bodrum, it could be worth tying them.
Cheers
