Over the past 40 years the industry has grown, and today a large number of marinas dot the coastline between Istanbul and Antalya. These provide supplies, easy access to the shore at major resorts and safe harbours, as well as often becoming local entertainment venues in themselves.
Turkey has more coastline than any other Mediterranean country - some 8400 kilometers. There are so many bays and coves; one can almost always pick a pretty anchorage within minutes of deciding to drop the anchor. Marinas are generally first class with technical support and repair and haul-out facilities. Turkey's most established marinas on the southern Aegean and Mediterranean coasts at Izmir, Cesme, Kusadasi, Bodrum, Marmaris, Gocek, Fethiye and Antalya. There are many pretty small harbours, such as Kalkan, where one can Med-moor to a quay or jetty with electricity and water. Overnight fees are less than half those of first class marinas.
Most cruising yachts sail in the southwest of the country, along the Mediterranean coast and the Aegean Sea, although the Sea of Marmara is also worth exploring and a sail through the heart of Istanbul is an exhilarating experience.
In these well- equipped harbours, yachtsmen can find the services and provisions they require. Antalya, Bodrum Dalaman, Izmir and Istanbul airports provide quick links to all of Turkey's marinas. After an easy flight you can board your yacht and sail off all within a day.
Fuel - Diesel is difficult to obtain as tanker lorries can no longer supply small ports. New regulations require tankers to have a specific (and expensive) license to supply yachts, as opposed to gulets. Plan fuelling stops well ahead and carry spare cans.

Ship building is a 600 years old tradition in Turkey. The first shipyard was established in 1390. By the 16th century Turkish shipyards were already largest in the world.
Traditional shipbuilding skills combined with modern techniques and education has enabled the Turkish shipbuilding industry to develop into an internationally known trademark since the early 1990’s
Turkish ship and yacht building industry has modern, technological developed and quality certified shipyards together with well experienced work force. In Turkey’s shipyards brand new ships, Yachts, mega Yachts, and sailing boats are being manufactured. In addition to these, repair and maintenance services are provided for vessels.
In 2006, 100 ships with a total of 556,285 DWT were delivered. 66 ships and yachts have been already contracted for 2007. The types and tonnage capacities of these Turkish and foreign flag ships varied: petrol tankers, chemical tankers, fishing boats, container ships, bulk carriers, Yachts, tug boats, tankers, sailing boats, general cargo ships, oil tankers, intervention crafts, coast guards, speed boats, multi and special purpose ships, military vessels, servicing tankers, bunker barges, tugboats, mega Yachts and other types of sailing and motor boats. Ships produced in Turkey are manufactured in accordance with international standards (ISO 9000 AND AQAP Quality Certificates) and under the supervision of certain societies. All these figures climbed-up in 2008.
In the beginning, mostly wooden ships and yachts were being manufactured. Later started the manufacturing of ships/yachts made of sheet iron. With its 600 years of history, shipbuilding today is in compliance with the international standards, thanks to efforts of the young entrepreneurs. The initial objective of the sector was merely to meet the needs of the Turkish Naval Commerce Fleet. However, having confirmed its technological competency outside Turkey, and especially to the European countries, today this sector has gained a considerable export potential.
The average employment figure of the sector is 5,000. With efforts to increase their share in the world market, the shipyards keep on increasing their production values.
Another attention drawing development regarding the Turkish shipyards is the increase in the number of mega-yachts manufactured. For the last three years, Turkey is at fourth place in the world list of mega-yacht (yachts longer than 25m.) manufacturers. The estimation that the demand for mega-yachts will increase and the fact that the Turkish naval architecture is competent enough for meeting this demand, indicate that this sub-sector will have to work very hard in the near future.
The present position of the sector
Today, Turkish shipyards are well-known in the world market for manufacturing ships/yachts according to international codes and for on-time delivery. However, due to the effects of the local and international economic crises of the last decade and the abandoning of the stimulus to spur the sector, the sector has become less and less competitive in the global sense. Against all odds, Turkish shipyards have survived this tough process. Moreover, they have achieved to keep up with the ever-developing technology. Today, these shipyards build ships/yachts especially for export purposes.
A rising star in Turkey: Naval Architecture Industry
Closely connected with the vehicle sector, the naval architecture industry has today become a crucial manufacturing sector for Turkey. Having started 600 years ago in the shipyards in Turkey, the sector is now globalizing each day. It necessitates the expertise and cooperation of various fields and has to be exercised in an atmosphere of intense international competition.
Naval architecture could be defined as a general name for the entire shipyard activities. It is clear that if its development is supported and encouraged, creating a considerable source of employment in all the countries, this sector provides serious economic benefits. The reasons why special importance should be attached to the naval architecture industry compared to the other heavy industries can be summarized as follows: naval architecture provides considerable foreign currency inflow, attracts foreign investors, creates a sub-industry comprised of its suppliers, enables technology transfer, carries a strategic meaning for its contributions to the defense of the country, and supports the naval commerce fleet.
