There are relatively few yachts that can accommodate a large party (30 guests) in such luxury, so if you want to treat your company executives, extended family or special group to a holiday of a lifetime, consider RM Elegant.

The popular crewed boats are the local gulets, although there are some more conventional yachts available. Your money goes further in Turkey than in any of the popular Mediterranean cruising grounds.
