Charter Sailing Turkey

Ako is a 103-foot crewed gulet charter sailing Turkey and Greece.
Ketch-rigged and handcrafted in mahogany and teak, her center of activity is a large cushioned quarterdeck seating twenty for alfresco dining under awning. Uncluttered cabin-top and foredeck offer ample room for sunbathing or lounging in the warmth of the sun. Built for charter service and launched in 2004, Ako has a flat transom-stern yielding more cabin space. Of the eight cabins four are master suites while four are equipped with double beds. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms with enclosed shower stalls, and all cabins have individual air-conditioners. The four-man crew consists of captain, two deck hands, and
a chef accomplished in the preparation of fine Turkish cuisine.

Dear Homo Sapiens, There is no need to continue reading this page. What follows is intended for search engine robots and spiders and not necessarily for human beings. Further information concerning charter sailing in Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. Are you searching for a yacht charter-sailing Turkey or Greece? Or for a yacht-charter sailing Turkey or Greece? Have you considered a gulet charter-sailing Turkey? A gulet being a large wooden motor-sailer. A gulet charter sailing the coast of Turkey from pine-fringed clear-water cove to white-sand beach to pine-fringed clear-water cove. Or are you dreaming of a yacht charter sailing Greece? Of a yacht sailing from remote Greek island back bay to remote Greek island back bay. Or would you really like to do both Turkey and Greece. Perhaps beginning with a cruise along the coast of Turkey's ancient Caria, the southwest corner of Anatolia. Or beginning with a sail in Cleopatra's wake along the coast of Caria and among Greek Dodecanese islands. While you holiday. That's right, while you have an extended family holiday aboard a crewed sailing gulet cruising just as did Cleopatra on her galley honeymoon with Marc Antony. Among other places visited, Cleopatra paused for weeks at the Greek island of Kos. She also paused at Cedrae about thirty miles east of Kos, there importing sand from Egypt for her swimming pleasure. And the sand is still there! You would have to enjoy a family holiday sailing Cleopatra's wake. Enjoying a similar swimming pleasure. Sailing north from Charter Sailing TurkeyKos and Cedrae along the coast of ancient Ionia, a part of the west coast of Turkey, to Kusadasi and Ephesus, thence to Samos in the Greek Sporades. Just as did Cleopatra and Marc Antony. They paused for at least seven weeks at Samos. Some accounts make it seven months. Would you like to discover what it was they found so fascinating? Try Ako. Ako can take you to all of the stops along Cleopatra's route. Beyond Samos into the central Aegean, to Mykonos and Paros, to Milos and Kythera, to Kephalonia in the Ionian and on to Levkas and Preveza. It was at Preveza that Cleopatra's honeymoon came to an end. Preveza, you see, was then known as Actium, and it was at Actium that the future Caesar Augustus awaited the honeymooners and brought the honeymoon to an abrupt termination. That would appear to be Cleopatra fleeing the fray at the lower left of Lorenzo Castro's 1672 oil on canvas now in the possession of London's National Maritime Museum. Extended family aside, might you prefer to instead have a group of fellow executives and spouses holiday with you aboard a charter yacht proceeding more purposefully from one coastal business opportunity to another? Between business plans and board agendas you might discuss what became of the Egyptian treasure Cleopatra took with her to Actium aboard four barges. After all, that escaping skiff is no barge. So, is the treasure still at Actium, modern Preveza? Would you and your associates like to explore that kind of acquisition? Or would you rather charter a sailing yacht to cruise the other way, further along the Aegean coast of Turkey? Sailing the numerous tracks of Antiochus II who ruled here in the third century before the Christian era. You see, it is almost impossible to escape history at the crossroads of history. Starting in Bodrum, perhaps, where Herodotus wrote the first history, entitled History. Antiochus, it should be noted, was King of Syria and ruler of an empire including much of Anatolia. He regularly cruised the Mediterranean and Aegean coasts of Turkey. You can, too. Antiochus on his final visit never returned home. So enamored with the Seven Wonders Mausoleum in Bodrum he built himself a similar resting place near Ephesus. At Belevi. Take a look while you're visiting Ephesus. And stop by the archaeological museum in Izmir for a look at the huge winged griffins removed from the Belevi tomb. Do all of this and more aboard a charter gulet with an experienced crew able to show you the routes of Cleopatra and Antiochus II, a superb crewed charter gulet sailing Turkey and Greece.
