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 crewed charter yachts sailing Greece and Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the maroon links immediately above. Thank You. This page features a selection of crewed sailing yachts available for charter in Turkey and Greece. Similar listings of crewed charter yachts sailing Turkey and sailing Greece may be found by clicking on the first and second links immediately above. The yachts on this page as well as those on the linked pages are mostly home-ported in Turkey but rendezvous for charter holidays in both Turkey and Greece. That is, crewed yachts chartered in Turkey may be sailed to Greece or may be met in Greece. Crewed charter yachts may be found sailing Turkey and sailing Greece up to nine months of the year. Crewed yachts are ideal platforms for family holidays as there is rarely room for more than six guests in as many as three cabins. Crewed charter yachts make for idyllic honeymoons sailing and cruising in Greece and Turkey, in Greece among Cyclades, Dodecanese, and Sporades Islands of the Aegean, in Turkey on Blue Cruise between Kusadasi and Antalya. Most Greek island cruises begin and end in Turkey or in either Greek Kos or Greek Rhodes, as these latter have customs-clearing ports. In Turkey most crewed yacht charters begin at Bodrum, Marmaris, or Gocek, and frequently end at the same port. Crewed yacht charters, however, just as frequently begin at one port and end at another. Charter Yachts Turkey is able to customize itineraries to any preference. Down the Turkish coast. Up the same coast and among Greek islands, or a sailing odyssey among remote Aegean Cyclades. We can put you aboard a crewed yacht sailing Turkey and Greece for a holiday not to be forgotten. We can lay out an itinerary and point you toward all of the scenic wonders of this part of the world. We can as well point you toward the crossroads of history, lay out a track once sailed by Alexander's triremes and two millennia later followed by similar oared galleys such as that depicted here belonging to the Hospitaller Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem. Known also as the Knights of Rhodes, every Hospitaller at Rhodes was required to serve in the Order'sCrewed Yacht Sailing Greece hospital said for more than two hundred years to be the finest medical facility in the world. Every Hospitaller at Rhodes was also required to serve at least two years in the Order's oared galleys which were as large as any in the Mediterranean and usually faster. By the time the Order arrived at Rhodes from Cyprus in 1306 the Hospitallers had already established themselves as pre-eminent sea warriors. They made their reputation not just by 24 months of service aboard the Order's galleys but also through ownership by individual knights of their own galleys and sailing vessels which went to sea as corsairs with authorizing letters of marque issued by the Order. Hospitaller Grand Masters such as Foulques de Villaret, Pierre d'Aubusson, Philippe Villiers de l'Isle Adam, and Jean Parisot de la Valette each established their credentials as corsairs at sea in the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean. One such Hospitaller not a Grand Master was nevertheless called by peers who eagerly rallied around him, Le Grand Corsaire. Born in about 1475, he is said to have been a Gascon from the lower Pyrenees of France otherwise known only as Frere Bernardin. A second or third son destined to be without title or estate, Frere Bernardin became a Hospitaller and was assigned to the Order's priory at then-French Airasca near Genoa. While Frere Bernardin took vows of chastity and abstinence as did all Hospitallers, and served as well as a battlefield chaplain, he was in 1513 by decree of France's King Louis XII made Baron of Baux and is thenceforth known to history as Bernardin de Baux. The barony was awarded in recognition of his service to the crown during the war with England that and the prior year when he took his own galleon La Brava up against the English off Brest. But Fra Bernardin had much earlier appeared in the Aegean, in 1499 battling Ottomans between Milos and the Peloponnesus, and in 1501 participating in the French siege of Lesbos, home of Aruj Barbarossa who at the time labored at a Hospitaller oar. Frere Bernardin returned yet again in 1504 and made Rhodes his home during the following two years, not for duty aboard the Order's galleys but as a corsair aboard his own galley seeking out and running down opposing Ottoman corsairs. He returned yet again in 1509 and 1510 to prowl with his La Brava the Mediterranean coast of Turkey east and west of Antalya. Frere Bernardin has a fascinating history including a 1510 pursuit of the aforementioned Aruj Barbarossa and a 1516 pursuit of the renown Muslihiddin Kurtoglu destined to become governor of Rhodes upon Hospitaller eviction in 1523, but that history must be told in more than a single web page. It is worth noting, however, that Le Grand Corsaire is today remembered more for his restoration of the town of Baux than for any corsair pursuit or for any service to the king. Come charter a crewed yacht to learn more of history at the crossroads of history, including more of Bernardin de Baux. Contact Charter Yachts Turkey today at charter@gocekturkey.com
