An Eastern Mediterranean yacht charter is what dreams are made of. With a crewed motor yacht charter in the Eastern Mediterranean through Engel & Völkers Yachting, your holiday dream becomes a reality.
On a motor or sailing yacht charter in the Eastern Mediterranean you might like to cruise the Ionian archipelago, where olive groves and Venetian palaces stand watch over a sapphire sea, or sail through the tranquil islands of Croatia, to swim in pine-edged coves, walk the high walls of Dubrovnik, and party on the jet set island of Hvar. Or perhaps the Turkish Riviera calls your name, as you float along the breathtaking Turquoise Coast, where ancient cities crumble into the dust and the elite gather in the elegant city of Bodrum.
Which yachting destination will you choose? Whether you decide on a Croatia yacht charter, a Greece Yacht Charter, or a Turkey yacht charter, Engel & Völkers Yachting create astonishing tailored itineraries to make your cruising experience the very best of the best of the Eastern Mediterranean.
Croatia Yacht Charter
Croatia has become one of the superyacht playgrounds of the world, with charter guests drawn by the beguiling mix of medieval cities, pine forested islands, and the glamorous nightlife of Hvar.
DAY 1: DUBROVNIK
Begin your Croatia yacht charter in Dubrovnik, a magnificent fortress city known as the ‘Jewel of the Adriatic’. Stroll the 80 foot city ramparts and the winding medieval streets, and stop for refreshment in shady garden courtyards of date palms and orange trees. When sunset comes, adjourn to one of Dubrovnik’s famous ‘hole in the wall’ bars with terraces hanging above the sea, then fine dine on the city walls at Restaurant 360°.
Greece Yacht Charter
Promising Venetian palaces, ancient temples and turquoise seas, a Greek Islands yacht charter through the Ionian archipelago is a decadent journey of discovery.
DAY 1: CORFU
DAY 2: CORFU TO PAXOS
Turkey Yacht Charter
Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is cruising paradise, as you anchor in perfect-blue green coves, mingle with the jet set in elegant Bodrum, and explore the ancient city of Ephesus.
DAY 1: GOCEK
Join your Turkey charter yacht on the Turquoise coast at Göcek, where you’ll leave the bustling marina and get underway for the utterly breathtaking Fethiye, where lush forested hills slope steeply way into emerald and turquoise water. Cruise to the famous Ölüdeniz lagoon, one of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean, before berthing in Fethiye Marina and exploring the town.
DAY 2: FETHIYE TO MARMARIS
Wake in the morning for a swim and breakfast on deck, before cruising to Ekincik, where you’ll leave your yacht to take a cruise up the Dalyan River, admiring the incredible Lycian tombs carved into cliffs on the river banks. Explore the UNESCO-listed site of Kaunos, an ancient trading city crumbling into ruin, before returning to your yacht and heading on to Marmaris to wander through the Turkish bazaar and the old town in the evening.
DAY 3: MARMARIS TO DATCA
The Datça Peninsula is a vision of unspoilt perfection, with rocky coves so beautiful that the Ancient Greeks believed Zeus himself had created them. Anchor in a dreamy landscape of pine forest, olive groves and vivid blue sea, and enjoy a blissful day swimming off the back of the yacht and trying out the watertoys. If you’re a history lover, a visit to the ruined harbour city of Knidos is a must.
DAY 4: DATÇA TO BODRUM
The elegant city of Bodrum has become a superyacht hotspot in recent years, with its enchanting combination of history and glamour. Wander along the pretty laneways of whitewash and bougainvillea, and visit the Bodrum Castle and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. When night falls, the famous nightlife of Bodrum kicks off, from rooftop terraces by the marina to the open air super-club, Halikarnas.
DAY 5: BODRUM TO TURKBUKU
Have a lazy lie-in while the Captain moves the yacht out to anchor in a stunning cove. Refresh yourself with a swim off the yacht and a late brunch on deck, before cruising on to Turkbuku, a favoured destination of the elite just outside Bodrum. Known as Turkey’s St Tropez, Turkbuku has some superb luxury offerings, including Maçakızı Beach Club, the perfect place to while away an afternoon on a Turkey yacht charter.
DAY 6: TURKBUKU TO ALTINKUM
You’ll anchor in the Cove of Gulluk and head ashore to the ancient city of Didim, where the columns of the Temple of Apollo still stand tall against the sky. Return to your yacht for a cooling swim and a long lunch on the aft deck, before making your way to the lively beach bars of Altinkum for sunset cocktails by the sea. The yacht will then transit overnight to the next destination.
DAY 7: EPHESUS AND KUŞADASI
A visit to Ephesus on your Turkey yacht charter will never be forgotten. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, this ancient Greco-Roman city dazzles with its Temple of Artemis, amphitheatres, baths and grand terrace houses. After exploring, return to your yacht for the short cruise to the resort town of Kuşadası for your final evening aboard the yacht before flying out of Izmir.
