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 catamarans holiday cruising Turkey and Greece may be obtained by clicking on the gray links immediately above. Thank You. You might be searching for catamarans cruising in Turkey or Greece. Alternatively you might be searching for other shallow-draft vessels cruising in Turkey or Greece. Well, we have both. Sort of. That is, we have catamarans cruising Turkey and Greece today, and we have a history of shallow-draft galleys, galliots (smaller galleys), and fustas (smaller galliots) cruising Turkey and Greece during centuries past. While these other shallow-draft vessels have more than two thousand years of history in our waters, one of the more interesting chapters in this history involves Andrea d'Amaral, a Portuguese knight of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, the order's members known also as Hospitallers and as Knights of Rhodes. Though Portuguese, Andrea d'Amaral was a member of the Spanish branch of the Knights of Rhodes, there being no Portuguese branch, and had been awarded the title of Grand Prior of Castile. In other words, he was a senior Hospitaller. During Amaral's time as a Knight of Rhodes, the first two decades of the sixteenth century, the Order maintained behind the walls at Rhodes Town perhaps the finest hospital in the world, one with a thousand linen-sheeted beds and patients dining off of silver plate. While the quality of medical care may have been medieval, all knights served shifts in the hospital and all knights had knowledge of medical care. Andrea d'Amaral was a serving brother with a particular gift. He knew the works of Pliny The Elder like the back of his hand, including the Naturalis Historia and its chapters on human physiology and pharmacology. In short, Amaral was not only a senior Hospitaller but a talented Hospitaller. But there was more to Amaral than readily met the eye. Commanding three of the Order's galleys in 1510, together with a number of large galliots (such as depicted below) and fustas, he co-commanded with Philippe Villiers de l'Isle Adam a Knights flotilla in an engagement with 25 Egyptian vessels off Alexandretta, now Iskenderun, Turkey. The outcome was an overwhelming Knights victory widely celebrated in Christendom, and the outcome was obtained mostly by l'Isle Adam's tactical brilliance. Andrea d'Amaral was a proud knight and l'Isle Adam's laurels rankled. Ten years later Amaral lost by a wide margin an election for the highest position in the Order, Grand Master. Catamarans Holiday Cruising TurkeyAnd he lost it to l'Isle Adam. Even though appointed Grand Admiral shortly thereafter, Amaral's election defeat also rankled. Sometime during the next year he is said to have made contact with agents of the Ottoman sultan, his purpose subversion. He is said to have invited Suleiman's 1522 invasion and siege of Rhodes defended by l'Isle Adam, and during the siege one of his staff was caught shooting messaged arrows into the Ottoman camp. That was the end of a brilliant but vain individual; Amaral was decapitated, drawn and quartered without admitting guilt. While there may be a moral here, as, Amaral was the exception among men in not confessing under torture, there is certainly history here at the crossroads of history. So, were you intending to holiday cruise with your children? Were you hoping to find history that may have been overlooked in the classroom? Can you not do both with a bareboat catamaran holiday cruising Turkey or Greece? Cruising Turkey's pine-clad southwest coast, perhaps, or sailing on the wind from Gocek to Rhodes Town, pausing for a swim in each and every clear-water cove during the early going? Or are you in a hurry to holiday cruise the azure sea between remote Greek islands, to explore seaside towns climbing steep harbor slopes, to locate the perfect grilled octopus? Or all of the above? Could you be dreaming of a catamaran holiday cruising in both Turkey and Greece? If so, or if only Turkey or only Greece, how about doing both or one or the other aboard a charter yacht with family accommodations? With accommodations for two families! How about chartering such a yacht to cruise Turkey's ancient Lycia? To sail Andrea d'Amaral's 1510 path from Rhodes Town to Kekova Roads and beyond? By way of Kastellorizon? How about tracing l'Isle Adam's route back along the coast of Lycia? While you holiday? How about having a family holiday doing this? How about having a family holiday aboard a catamaran proceeding leisurely from enchanting locale to historic locale? How about chartering a catamaran to cruise further along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey? To ancient Pamphylia or to Smooth Cilicia? Both known to Amaral and l'Isle Adam as Karamania. Starting in Gocek? Are you searching for Gocek in Turkey? Well it is proximate to Dalaman International Airport 42 nautical miles ENE of Rhodes Town. There or elsewhere we can put you aboard a bare boat or crewed catamaran for the holiday cruise of a lifetime. We can put you aboard a chartered catamaran and point you toward flat sailing waters of the Gulf of Gocek, show you Andrea d'Amaral's path down the coast of Lycia, show you l'Isle Adam's route up the coast of Turkey to Rhodes Town.
