Bodrum Gulet Cruise
Bodrum is the center of the Turkish Gulet and Blue Cruise area, a very popular starting place for sailing charters in the Aegean Sea. It was called Halicarnassus in Ancient Greek times, and was the site of the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (which unfortunately was destroyed by the Crusaders to build Bodrum Castle).
Bodrum has a large, protected harbour, overlooked by Bodrum Castle, which houses a fascinating museum of its incredible history. The harbour is generally full of a stunning array of Gulets and sailboats and offers plenty of restaurants and seaside cafes. Bodrum is easily reached from Istanbul and many other European cities, as it has an international airport 20 minutes inland. Easy to rent gulet charter Turkey.
Bodrum is a great starting point for any charter in the South West region of Turkey, and has a wide range of boats to meet your specific needs. You can even get involved in one of the only regattas in Europe where passengers are allowed on board and can double as crew. The Bodrum Cup Regatta happens every October and they even have a prize for the best fancy-dressed crew!
