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 holiday cruising in Greece and Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. Should you be searching for the 44th king of Bavaria, well, you're out of luck. There were only six, the first, Maximilian I Joseph, ascending the throne in 1805 courtesy of Napoleon Bonaparte, the last Ludwig III depicted to the left deposed by World War I allies in 1918. Should you be looking for a founding partner of Bain Capital, owner of Bavaria Yachtbau, GmbH, well, no, this page is not a plug for Mitt Romney's next presidential candidacy. Nor for any other Republican candidacy. Should you alternatively be dreaming of a bare boat holiday cruising Turkey or Greece, well, you have found an appropriate web page. Are you in fact thinking of a holiday in Turkey? Or could you be dreaming of a bare boat cruise in Greece? Or of both? Of Greece and Turkey at once? It can be done! Should either or both of the foregoing be the case, why not holiday aboard a 44-foot charter yacht with accommodations for family and friends. Why not charter such a yacht to cruise the coasts of ancient Ionia and Aeolis in Turkey. Why not charter such a yacht to sail the crossroads of history. Why not charter such a yacht to sail, for example, the Barbarossa brothers' paths out of neighboring Lesbos, where they were born, through the Greek Sporades and into the central Aegean's Cyclades. While you holiday at the birthplace of history! While you island hop from Chios to Samos, from Fourni to Naxos to Paros as did Aruj, eldest of four Barbarossa brothers, and as did Khizr, youngest. Or should you prefer, holiday cruise the Turquoise Coast of Turkey as did a third brother, Elias, during the latter years of the fifteenth century. First the Turquoise Coast and then the coasts of Pamphylia and Cilicia. The offspring of a Greek Orthodox mother and a formerly Orthodox father, these corsair brothers grew to despise Latin Christians and were for most of their lives to take revenge for the Fourth Crusade rape and plunder of Greek Constantinople and subsequent Latin occupation of Greek Aegean islands. They did it not aboard charter yachts proceeding leisurely from clear-blue-sea locale to clear-blue-sea locale, but rather aboard Mediterranean galliots, small, light, and fast galleys, twenty-two or fewer oars to a side worked by free men and not by slaves. Those decades at the close of the fifteenth and turn of the sixteenth centuries were long before the Bermuda rig propelling your Bavaria 44; you will have no need of oars. And no, that's not a Barbarossa depicted at right but rather Willard Mitt Romney himself, though some have termed him a raider like the Barbarossa brothers, his motive self-aggrandizement rather than revenge. The Barbarossas took their revenge aboard galliots and they took revenge on Latin shipping and on Latin-held islands of the Aegean both before and after Aruj and Khizr ventured into the western Mediterranean. In the western Mediterranean these two were joined by fourth brother Isaac and the three of them took revenge on Venice and the other city states of Italy, on their shipping and armadas and coastal towns. As Barlaam of Calabria told Pope Benedict XII during a 1339 ambassadorial mission on behalf of the Eastern Roman Emperor Andronicus III Palaeologus: "It is not so much a difference of dogma that turns the hearts of the Greeks against you as the hatred of the Latins which has entered into their spirit in consequence of the many and great evils which the Greeks have suffered from the Latins at various times and are still suffering day by day." Would you like to charter your Bermuda-rigged yacht for more relaxed purposes? In Gocek? Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Located on Turkey's southwestern coast at the head of a gulf twelve miles from open sea, Gocek is within 25 minutes by road of the international airport at Dalaman. In Gocek or elsewhere we can put you aboard a bare boat for the holiday cruise of a lifetime. We can put you aboard a bare boat charter yacht and show you the flat sailing waters of the Gulf of Gocek, show you Elias Barbarossa's path down the coast of Lycia to Cilicia, and show you Aruj and Khizr's tracks into the Aegean. A superb Bavaria 44 available for holiday cruising in Greece and Turkey. Contact Charter Yachts Turkey today at firstname.lastname@example.org
