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 Dufour charters sailing Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. Are you thinking of a bareboat charter sailing Turkey or Greece? Are you contemplating an intimate holiday for two? With lots of privacy? But mobility, as well? Could you be imagining a bareboat sail meandering on or off the wind from one pine-encircled clear-water cove to the next pine-encircled clear-water cove? Or between the coves of remote Greek Aegean islands surrounded by nothing at all? Or might you have an interest in bareboat sailing from one archaeological repository to the next? From one visual display of history to the next visual display of history? How about doing one or more of these things aboard a charter yacht with intimacy and mobility. How about doing these things aboard a Dufour 335 Grand Large. How about beginning your holiday by sailing the flat waters on the border between Turkey's ancient Lycia and ancient Caria. At the crossroads of history. Where Cyrus the Great's armies marched. How about sailing the Gulf of Telmessos. Telmessos, where Alexander the Great's armies paused. While you holiday. While you holiday with wife or friend cruising the Turkish Mediterranean and Greek Aegean in relative seclusion. While you holiday aboard a charter yacht proceeding leisurely from enchanting locale to historical crossroads. Does that sound like the holiday! Or what! Why not charter a Dufour 335GL to cruise further along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Along the Turquoise Coast. Where the sea really does take on a turquoise color. To Patara and Olympos. To Kalkan, Kas, and Kastellorizon. As did Francis Beaufort in 1811 and 1812. Starting in Gocek. Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Ancient Callimache? For Telmessos (Fethiye) in Turkey? Well, they may be found at opposite inland corners of the large gulf 35 nautical miles east of Rhodes Town, with Gocek fifteen miles by road from the international airport at Dalaman (DLM). In Gocek we can arrange intimate Dufour charters sailing Turkey. And Greece! We can put you aboard a charter yacht and show you the flat sailing waters of the Gulf of Gocek, show you Alexander's Path down the coasts of Caria and Lycia, show you the route of Cyrus's generals along the same coast of Turkey, show you Francis Beaufort's mapping route past the Seven Capes to Patara and further. Beaufort, he of wind and sea scale fame, later Royal Navy Hydrographer, termed this entire coast from Caria to Cilicia after its interregnum ruler. Karamania, he called it, in honor of the post-Seljuk, pre-Ottoman Turkish state which held sway here in the 13th, 14th, and 15th centuries, writing a best-selling travelogue entitled, you guessed it, Karamania. "For, besides its tempting proximity to the borders of Europe, and its easiness of access, this once flourishing region seems to have eminent claims to attention: it was colonized by that redundant population of antient (sic) Greece, which had gradually spread over the rest of Asia-Minor, and which had everywhere introduced the same splendid conceptions, the same superiority in the arts, that had immortalized the parent country: it was once the seat of learning and riches, and the theatre of some of the most celebrated events that history unfolds: it was signalized by the exploits of Cyrus (depicted at left) and Alexander." Nothing of the foregoing has changed. Come see for yourself. Come Dufour charter sailing in Turkey. Come bareboat charter sailing in both Greece and Turkey. Yes, Greece, too! Come sailing to Greek Rho. And to Greek Kastellorizon where Beaufort discovered Egyptian merchantmen loaded with Anatolian pine to warm the hearths of Alexandria. And where he also discovered a warm Greek welcome. Contact Blue Cruise Yacht Charters today at email@example.com
