Experience with Setur Marinas, Turkey?

Like many of you, I assume, we are re-thinking our sailing plans and considering alternatives. We had hoped to spend this summer sailing the eastern Mediterranean on our Lagoon 400, currently berthed in Barcelona. That's not going to happen.

I have booked a flight back to Barcelona in mid-September. If conditions permit, I hope to sail the boat east and take the boat out of the water and/or look for a winter berth.

One option is the Setur marinas in Turkey. I contacted them and received a written quote for a 12-month contract for 41,161 Turkish Lira (USD 6042 at the current rate). The contract includes one free lift and launch and up to 6 months storage on the hard. The contract also allows us to use other Setur marinas for up to 30 days each. We would have to choose a "home" marina and are then limited to the 30 free days at each of the other marinas.

Setur has ten marinas (Kalamis, Yalova, Ayvalik, Mytilini, Cesme, Kusadasi, Marmaris, Kas, Finike, and Antalya) and they suggested we home port in Finike because they have a lift that can handle the 400. We have traveled several times to Turkey, but only visited the Istanbul area.

Does anyone have knowledge and experience with the Setur marinas, or the towns where the marinas are located, that might help us consider where to put the boat for the year, assuming we decide to and can make it to Turkey in October? Facilities and services at the marina are obviously important, but we would also like to be near an interesting town that we can get to know while we spend some time winter berthing on the boat.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Experience with Setur Marinas, Turkey?

Hello Charlie,

I don't know for which one of the Setur marinas you were quoted for this price. I assume, this was for Finike which is the cheaper one.
Setur martinas are one of the best and professionally managed narinas in Turkey. As you mentioned they have many marinas and they are all different not on only as a location but also in terms of size, wintering capacity, access to technical services., hence their prices
For example Setur Marmaris where we are cannot lift catamarans of even 40 ft and as they have very little space on hard, they keep the boats in water and allow hard docking of very short time only. But Marmaris Setur is in the heart of the city and has probably the best service capability in entire eastern Med.
Finike is a small town and has very little service option if any at all. The nearest airports are Antalya three and half hour, and Dalaman two and half hour.
PM me if you need any further info or would like to consider anothere marina option in Marmaris where we have special discounts.
