We left our AU flag Jeanneau
Sun Fast 43 for 2 years on the hard
stand at Bodrum (2012-2014 Yat Lift Yat Lift
) and last August signed a 2 year contract
for hard stand at Antalya Marina (Antalya Marina
Re the fees
, it seems once you are storing for over 7-8 months it is same cost as a year contract, although if you are out and about for the good 6 months and seek only 6 months hard stand for the off season then the price
should be lower for a 6 month only "winter contract". For us, the 2 year price
worked out better, but our trips are 2-3 months each year. Of course you need to be comfortable with the marina quality/service and longevity to commit to that length of contract up front.
We considered Kusadasi, price was good. I am not so sure about the mechano type wooden cradle
system they mainly use in Turkey. They went to some trouble to ensure the posts contact the hull
on the bulkheads and that the keel
is not taking all the weight. Although I would be happier if there was more diagonal and cross supports!
Re marina options, I created a spreadsheet with most of the marinas from Kusadasi round to Antalya with quoted contract costs and liftout etc fees
, can send it to you if that helps. Our LOA
is 13.21, Beam 4.19, Draft
2.55 so probably similar specs/costs to you.
I have attached a picture of the current
hard stand at Antalya and map of the last trip if you have any questions on the specific marinas.
