You have a boat
in the Caribbean
, but always wanted to sail the Med?
Great! I have a boat
and always wanted to sail the Caribbean!
Sure we could both charter
. Or not - drop me a PM, please.
My boat is a 1984 Comar Comet 1050, about 35ft and perfect for a couple, family
will need people sleep in the salon
as aft cabin
was sacrificed for more batteries
. "Ship-shape" (you might argue that the mainsail
sliders need replacing) w/ new engine
& everything you'd want except diving equipment
- it's illegal to dive "alone" in Turkish waters. She's moored in the Gulf of Göcek in Fethiye, a picturesque city with a history
(and ruins) going back to B.C. times - and one of the top 10 sailing destinations on the planet.
Season is May to September with ~0 rain, temperatures are close to 40° / > 100° in July and August. I reccommend September. Would like to go the the Caribbean
U.S. citizens will need an e-Visa to enter Turkey
, which is zero hassle to get. It's only 60 miles to the island of Rhodes, Greece
- EU/Schengen area, you may just enter. I am a German citizen, so: Turkey is *not* a warzone, people are very friendly, and it's safe (of course you'll be madly ripped off by vendors if you can't negotiate). Most people will speak enough English
or go out of their way to find someone who does. The Greek islanders are generally very relaxed people, but annoyed by an incompetent government
and a refugee crisis now in it's 6th year, so there might be some superficial hostility if you happen to be of black or arab enthicity.
