Gulet Cruising Southwest Turkey

Kayhan 12 is a fore-and-aft rigged schooner
with triple headsails. Planked by craftsmen at the great natural harbor of Fethiye from imported Burmese teak with decking in teak-like iroko and interiors in varnished mahogany, she is more than able to accommodate twelve guests in spacious ambiance. There are six well-appointed cabins plus salon and bar. Master cabins fore and aft with large double beds complement four roomy double cabins. Each cabin offers comfortable accommodations including built-in wardrobe, ample drawer space, dressing table, and en suite bathroom. The bathrooms have full shower cubicles. All cabins are air-conditioned, cooling comfortably for an afternoon siesta and for the night. Topside deck space is uncluttered and more than adequate. There are gathering areas on both fore and quarter decks, each with awning. And, with so much room,
there are places for guests to tuck themselves away in solitude should they wish.

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 gulets charter cruising southwest Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. Are you searching for a comfortable yacht cruising southwest Turkey? For a comfortable motor-sailing gulet charter cruising southwest Turkey? Is that how you came upon this web page? Because you are considering a Blue Cruise along Turkey's Turquoise Coast where the sea really is turquoise. Because you wish to charter cruise southwest Turkey from one pine-fringed clear-water cove to the next pine-fringed clear-water cove, from one white-sand beach to the next white-sand beach, from one picturesque seaside town with bazaar to the next picturesque seaside town with acropolis. Perhaps sailing southwest Turkey from ancient Telmessos to ancient Andriake, following Alexander's Path along the coast of Classical Lycia. Or vice versa, sailing the other way. From Andriake to Telmessos tracing the apostle Paul's several voyages along this coast. Or tracing Cleopatra's two voyages around the Lycian peninsula. Searching for evidence of history. While you holiday. While you have a family and friends holiday aboard a crewed sailing yacht cruising just as did Cleopatra on her honeymoon with Marc Antony. Pausing, for example, as did they at the aforementioned Andriake, seaport for neighboring Myra. There Antony levied taxes, re-provisioned, embarked local legions, and conscripted oarsmen for an ever-expanding fleet of war galleys and support ships. He did the same forty nautical miles further up the coast at Patara, and again at Telmessos, modern Fethiye and home-port of Kayhan 12, another forty miles along his route to Actium and his confrontation with Octavian. Would you like to have a family holiday sailing this route? Antony and Cleopatra's route? Enjoying the swimming pleasure they enjoyed? Would you like Luxury 
Yacht Charter Turkeyto discover other attractions that caused them to tarry more than a year en route? Try Kayhan 12, a handsome 115-foot oak-framed, teak-planked, and teak-decked schooner laid down and launched in the same Fethiye. Kayhan 12 can take you to most of the stops along Antony's route. Antony and Cleopatra aside, Kayhan 12 is also familiar with numerous coves which five hundred years ago sheltered the swift lateen-rigged galleys (as depicted) of Bosdan Reis as he preyed on Latin shipping between the Levant and Crete. Also known as "Sultan," perhaps because of his several run-ins with Suleiman The Magnificent, Sultan of Sultans, Bosdan (from Bosnia) Reis was a native of Serb-speaking Bosnian Castelnuovo (now Montenegrin Hercegnovi) who had earlier made his name in the Aegean and Adriatic raiding possessions of the Serene Republic of Venice. At the time, though, the early-1520's, Venice was at peace with Suleiman's Ottoman Empire, and the Republic's ambassador to the Porte was vociferous in making known the Republic's irritation with Bosdan. Recalled to Constantinople in the summer of 1525 to explain his actions, Bosdan paused along the way to raid the large island of Negroponte, modern Euboea. Negroponte, as you might guess, was Venetian at the time, and the "Sultan's" conduct was too much for Suleiman. Bosdan was clapped in prison on the Bosphorus. Released on bond a month later, however, Bosdan took himself and his thirteen galliots to Telmessos and the Lycian coast running southeast from Telmessos. Sailing from Telmessos and Kekova Roads near Andriake in early 1526, Bosdan reneged on his bond and intercepted every Venetian vessel plying the route from Cyprus to Crete. For months he tweaked the Serene Republic's nose. Unfortunately for Bosdan, he tweaked Suleiman's nose, as well. By summer he was back in prison on the Bosphorus. He never emerged. Come explore this and other history aboard Kayhan 12, a luxury ketch plying waters plied by Alexander, Paul the Apostle, Antony, Cleopatra, and Bosdan Reis, among many others. Do all of this and more aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to cater to your every wish, a handsome crewed yacht available for charter cruising southwest Turkey.
