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 crewed charter yachts sailing the Turkish coast and Greek Aegean may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. This page features a selection of crewed charter yachts which may often be found along the Turkish coast and among Greek Aegean islands. Information on individual crewed charter yachts may be obtained by clicking on the yacht name in the main table. Without exception these are crewed charter yachts sailing Greece, Turkey, and, in some cases, Croatia and the western Mediterranean. Crewed motor-sailing charter yacht information may be found by clicking on "Crewed Gulet Summary" immediately above. The yachts listed on this page are on honeymoon and holiday yacht charter in the Mediterranean including the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian Seas as well as the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean. Blue Cruise Yacht Charters is able to customize itineraries to any guest's preference. Along Cimon's path down the Turkish coast, or along Julius Caesar's routes up and down the Turkish coast and among Dodecanese, Sporades, and Cyclades islands of Aegean Greece, or in the Apostle Paul's wake along the Turkish coast and among Sporades and Dodecanese islands returning from Corinth, and along the Turkish coast and into the Scattered Islands a prisoner en route to Rome, or simply to the wishes of the charter party. We can put charter guests aboard a crewed charter yacht for the holiday of a lifetime. We can put guests aboard a charter yacht with an experienced crew able to show them the scenic and historic wonders of this part of the world. While Cimon and Saint Paul, ancient Knidos and medieval Rhodes, the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem and Ottoman janissaries are deserving subjects of interest, this part of the world is notable, as well, for a wealth of accomplished seamen. Alcibiades, Lysander, the Barbarossa brothers, and Turgut Reis come quickly to mind. Another was Philippe Prevost de Beaulieu-Persac. Born ca1580 in western France to a family of minor nobility, Prevost was slated by virtue of a young father to make his own way in the world. He did so admirably if mysteriously. He has left us his Memoires (available free on line) of service to French kings Henry IV and Louis XIII without a word about what must have been an extraordinary life outside of that service. His Memoires begin in mid-1608 when Henry IV promises him command of a four-ship privateering squadron. He therefore quite obviously possessed at about 28 years of age sufficient stature and renown to receive a plum appointment, and at that time he already had a nom de guerre of equal renown. Monsignor Jiosef. Monsignor, of course, is a form of address normally accorded a senior prelate of the Roman Catholic church, and Prevost was  Roman Catholic, while Joseph was the name of his paternal grandfather. Still, the combination makes for a quite unusual seagoing appellation. It is also known that at the outset of his Memoires he is on familiar terms with a number of French corsairs operating out of Le Havre. A corsair was a ship captain with a letter of marque from a sovereign authorizing war on this or that national enemy, the arrangement necessary because few nations could afford to maintain full-strength navies. The same ship captain operating without a letter of Chartering Turkeymarque was a pirate, and many such seafarers were sometimes one and sometimes the other, a captured corsair to be repatriated, a captured pirate to be hung. We further know that the Venetian ambassador to the court of France knew Philippe Prevost to be a man of considerable accomplishment and a threat to Venice's eastern Mediterranean commerce, a commerce then running between Venice and Venetian outposts such as Crete as well as Middle Eastern trading entrepots, most in the Ottoman or Turkish Empire. This ambassador thwarted Prevost's request for a letter of marque to make war on all things Turkish. In his Memoires Prevost tells us only of a second son and nothing of his wife, earlier son, and daughter, all but the daughter to predecease him. But he spent a lot of time at home, inheriting his father's chateau and estates in 1612, and in his care for his second son arranged for the Grand Master of the Hospitaller Knights of Malta, Alof de Wignacourt, to be his son's godfather and namesake. The Knights were a monastic as well as military order and its priors were accorded the address of Monsignor. We further know that upon receiving the king's commission Prevost acquired a warship laid up by the Dutch during an interlude in their war of secession from Spain. Called La Lune and looking much like the square-rigged frigate or courier depicted above, Prevost immediately cut her in two and added thirty feet to her length! As would a naval architect, he also redesigned her mast, spars, and sail rig. Like a veteran of combat he equipped her with 50 long-range culverins and 1,200 muskets, sufficient for each man on board to have three at hand. Finally, we know that in December 1609 Prevost passed four or five days under the Seven Capes east of Gocek, Turkey, a notorious corsair rendezvous where he met several "acquaintances" from his past. Philippe Prevost de Beaulieu- Persac was a learned veteran of both long-range and close-aboard combat as well as a master mariner at the age of 28. He sailed our Aegean and eastern Mediterranean seas both in service to French kings as detailed in his memoirs and earlier in his unrecorded life as may logically be inferred from clues left in his wake. Sailing for twelve months in 1608 and 1609 without the requested letter of marque, Prevost was a pirate. Probably not for the first time. Late in 1609 he obtained the legitimizing credential from the Medici rulers of Tuscany. That year Prevost and La Lune were to be found prowling the Dodecanese between Kasos and Rhodes where he put several Ottoman vessels to flight, moving on to the Karamanian coast of Turkey where he captured or sank several others, La Lune acquiring the name Flying Dragon among Turks. At year-end he was to be found at Tripoli, then Ottoman, now Lebanese, where he again put a Turkish squadron to flight. Philippe Prevost was eventually to become even more famous in 1627 upon French defeat of the Duke of Buckingham before La Rochelle, the same Duke of Buckingham later immortalized in Dumas's The Three Musketeers. Philippe Prevost de Beaulieu-Persac, one of the world's great seamen making history at the crossroads of history.
