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 small gulets chartering Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. You must be searching for a gulet chartering along the coast of Turkey, possibly a small gulet. You may be thinking of a family cruise along the coast of Anatolia from Roman archaeological dig to Lycian archaeological dig, educating your offspring, or from isolated blue-water cove to isolated blue-water cove, entertaining your offspring, or from white-sand beach to white-sand beach, exercising your offspring. Or you may simply be dreaming of cruising anywhere in the eastern Mediterranean. Or anywhere in the Aegean. They are not the same, the eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean. The Aegean ends and the eastern Mediterranean begins when turning the southwestern extremity of Turkey near Bodrum. How about cruising both the eastern Mediterranean and Aegean aboard a small charter gulet with exclusive accommodations for six. How about having an ultra-private holiday sailing Imperial Byzantine Navy tracks off the Turkish coasts of Lycia and Caria; the AD 715 tracks, among others, of John the General Logothete assembling an army and armada at Telmessos intended to deter Saracen invaders from the Middle East. Or how about having an exclusive holiday with a small group of dear friends aboard a small and cozy ketch-rigged gulet proceeding leisurely from one remarkable locale to another, as did John's oar and lateen-rigged, double-decked, Greek-fire armed, dromons (depiction at left) and pamphylos and ousiakos sailing from Telmessos. How about embarking aboard your crewed gulet in Telmessos, modern Fethiye. Are you searching for Fethiye in Turkey? Well, Fethiye is located on the shore of a magnificent natural harbor 45 nautical miles ENE of Rhodes Town and proximate to the international airport at Dalaman (DLM). Fethiye was in Lycian times called Telebehi, a name derived from Hittite. For most of its ancient history Telebehi was a Lycian-speaking city-state independent of Lycia. Resting on the border between ancient Lycia and ancient Caria, Fethiye continued as Telebehi until Ptolemaic rule in the third century BC when it became Telmessos. This it remained until John the General Logothete renamed it Anastasiopolis in honor of his Byzantine Emperor Anastasius II, an emperor otherwise remembered mostly for the brevity of his two-year rule. One hundred years later, there being an unrelated blood line on the Byzantine throne, Anastasiopolis was again renamed, this time to Makri for the island Makri Vecchia enclosing its harbor. The name Makri remained through the Ottoman centuries but was replaced once more about eighty years ago in honor of Fethi Bey, an aviation pioneer who in 1914 attempted a 14-leg flight from Istanbul to Alexandria, then part of the Ottoman Empire. Piloting a Bleriot XI fashioned from balsa, paper, and glue, Fethi's tractor monoplane suffered from an absence of qualified care at each of the first eight waypoints and came to an abrupt halt between Beirut and Damascus where Fethi and his co-pilot rest today. In Fethiye or in nearby Gocek or elsewhere we can put you aboard a crewed sailing gulet for a holiday not to be forgotten. We can put you aboard a charter gulet with an experienced crew able to show you the flat sailing waters of the Gulfs of Gocek and Fethiye, able to show you the Imperial Navy's track down the coast of Caria, able to show you its track back up the coast of Turkey and among Greek islands.
