Charter Sailing Turkey

Xenos I is a tirhandil designed to afford the ultimate sailing holiday
cruising Turkey and Greece. Tirhandils are "double-enders" meaning they have pointed bow and stern, and are the descendents of Aegean caiques. No expense has been spared in construction of Xenos I, and she has sacrificed neither comfort nor sailing performance. There are four double cabins with two having an additional collapsible bunk for child or stowage. Each cabin has an en suite water closet with fully enclosed shower. Above decks Xenos I's low profile is aesthetically pleasing to the eye while her ketch rig supports
a full set of efficient sails. Her skipper has decades of sailing experience and sea lore. Xenos I carries
a 40 horse speedboat and water skis, windsurfer, kayak, snorkeling gear, and fishing tackle.
She is air conditioned throughout with a fully-equipped galley.
The Xenos experience is truly unique.

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 Xenos I? Or for the larger Xenos II? Or for the even larger Xenos III? Or are you simply searching for a tirhandil charter sailing Turkey and Greece? Well, you've found the tirhandil and the tirhandil is Xenos I! You may be thinking of a yacht charter in the Turkish sun. You may be dreaming of a sail in Turkey from pine-shrouded cove to pine-shrouded cove. Or you may be considering an Aegean cruise from one remote Greek island to another remote Greek island. In perpetual pursuit of the perfect octopus salad. Or you are hoping to do both. Turkey and Greece together. On the same holiday! Well, both can be done. How about doing both aboard a crewed charter yacht with comfortable Charter Sailing Turkeyaccommodations for four guest couples? A crewed tirhandil charter sailing Turkey and Greece. A crewed tirhandil cruising the Gulf of Kos. The Ceramic Gulf of Herodotus. Or sailing Cleopatra's honeymoon route along the coasts of Turkey's ancient Lycia and Caria and among Greek Dodecanese islands. While you holiday. Yes, how about having a Blue Cruise aboard a crewed sailing yacht cruising the Turquoise Coast of Turkey and the Aegean islands of Greece. How about having an extended-family holiday. Or having a group of friends or associates holiday with you aboard a charter yacht proceeding leisurely from one striking locale to another. Or how about chartering a sailing yacht to cruise further into the Aegean. All the way to Greece's Cyclades. Or, again, chartering a crewed tirhandil to cruise further along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Starting in Bodrum. Sailing to Gocek. Or to Antalya. Or further. Are you familiar with the saga of Sidi Ali Reis? Descended from a line of Ottoman shipbuilders, Sidi Ali was one of Kheir-ed-Din Barbarossa's sea captains, and a good one, too, later gaining fame as a writer and poet. In 1554 he was appointed to command of an Ottoman flotilla of 15 galleys then at Basra and was directed to make for Egypt. En route he was engaged by successive Portuguese flotillas of greater strength, the Ottomans acquitting themselves well, and then by a ten-day storm, also of greater strength, the latter taking him not to Egypt but to India. There his remaining galleys were broken up on the shore and abandoned, and there, in the fashion of Xenophon's Anabasis, Sidi Ali began a long overland trek home, frequently rescuing his crew from hostile natives by reciting his own poetry. Upon his return to Constantinople the sultan, Suleiman, rather than punish Sidi Ali for losing his flotilla instead rewarded him with a handsome pension which supported his writing, including a book on navigation entitled The Mirror of Countries. Well, we can put you aboard a crewed sailing yacht for unforgettable navigation through waters closer to Sidi Ali's home. We can put you aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show you the flat sailing waters of the Gulfs of Bodrum and Gocek, able to show you Sidi Ali's tracks up and down the coast of Turkey, and able to show you Cleopatra's Route up the coast of Turkey and among Greek islands. Xenos I, a superb schooner-rigged crewed tirhandil available for charter in Turkey and Greece. Contact Charter Yachts Turkey today at charter@gocekturkey.com
