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 gulets chartering in Greece and Turkey may be obtained by clicking on the blue links immediately above. Thank You. Should you be searching for Mare Nostrum, meaning Our Sea in Latin, you may well have come to the right place. Should you alternatively be searching simply for nostrum, that is, for a solution to your malaise, well, you may also have come to the right place. Should you be looking for that period novel Mare Nostrum by Vicente Blasco-Ibanez, however, you know, the novel with a German spy for a heroine who loses her heart to a Spanish sea captain and her life to a firing squad, you have found the wrong web page. Try Amazon or click on the foregoing link. This Mare Nostrum is a crewed yacht chartering in Greece and Turkey. This Mare Nostrum is a luxury schooner which slipped down the ways in April of 2008 and soon thereafter went into service chartering among Dodecanese and Cyclades islands of Aegean Greece and along the Turquoise Coast of Turkey. This Mare Nostrum is chartering at the crossroads of history in Turkey and Greece, the crossroads once termed Mare Nostrum by Romans ruling here. Could you be thinking of a gulet chartering Turkey? Of a gulet chartering Greece? Or both? If so, how about doing it aboard a schooner-rigged gulet with 7,500 square feet of canvas. How about doing it aboard an iroko-framed, mahogany-planked, and teak-decked yacht with six luxurious mahogany-walled cabins appointed by Aleks Banakis, an interior designer noted for exquisite yacht appointments. How about doing it aboard a sailing yacht with an experienced crew of five including a master chef ruling a kitchen which has everything. How about doing it aboard the 160-foot yacht Mare Nostrum. What would you think about a 160-foot (140-feet on deck) crewed yacht chartering Greece and Turkey in the wake of Aruj Reis? Chartering the coast of Asia Minor and among neighboring Greek islands. Aruj Reis (Aruj Captain) was the eldest of six children born on the Aegean island of Lesbos in the late 15th century to Greek parents, the father a former Ottoman janissary. Of the four sons two were later known as Barbarossa, Aruj the first. He got his sea legs trafficking between Lesbos and Tripoli and his habit of command in service to Mamluk Sultans of Egypt. He learned even more as a slave in the galleys of the Hospitaller Knights of Rhodes. Ransomed for far too little, by 1516 Aruj had founded the kingdom of Algeria and become its ruler, the second Barbarossa brother, Khizr, his principal lieutenant. Long before the brothers Barbarossa the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts of Turkey were the haunt of ancient Greeks, like the Athenian superhero Alcibiades. That's him at right. And should his image suggest the good life, well, the image is accurate. Here during the Spartan War, first on the side of the Spartans and then on the side of the Athenians, Alcibiades spent much of his life among exquisite appointments and elegant women. What would you think about chartering Greece and Turkey in his wake? While you holiday in exquisite comfort with elegant company. While you proceed from pine-encircled clear-water cove to remote Greek island. What would you think about an extended-family holiday aboard a crewed sailing gulet cruising these waters? You might have to reach out to long-lost cousins. Or should you prefer you might have a group of friends holiday with you aboard a charter gulet proceeding leisurely from fascinating locale to fascinating locale. Perhaps cruising into the Cyclades. Cruising from Turkey into the central Aegean of Greece. Starting in Marmaris. Are you searching for Marmaris in Turkey? Well, it is 25 nautical miles north of Rhodes Town, the home port for the Knights galley in which Aruj pulled an oar. It is also 90 minutes by road from the international airport at Dalaman (DLM). In Marmaris or elsewhere we can put you aboard a charter gulet with an experienced crew able to show you tracks left by the Barbarossa brothers, able to show you tracks left by the other two brothers without auburn beards, able to show you Alcibiades' 411 BC path down the Turkish coasts of ancient Caria and Lycia to Greek-speaking Phaselis, where he tarried in elegant company, able to show you the route of Persian fleets then threatening to come to the assistance of Spartans and to the peril of Athenians. Mare Nostrum, an exquisitely appointed crewed gulet chartering Greece and Turkey and knowledgeable of history at the crossroads of history.
