Sailing Greece! Sailing Turkey! Aegean Sun, Castellorizo, Classical and Hellenistic History, Crusader Castles, Homer, Hydra, Islands Drenched in Cycladic Blues and Whites or Dodecanese Pastels, Lycia, Monemvasia, Parian Marbles, Patmos, Rhodes, Saint Paul, Samos, Taurus Mountains, Turquoise Coast, Xanthos, Yacht Charters - all the stuff of a memorable honeymoon or holiday best enjoyed aboard a well-appointed proper yacht sailing Greece and Turkey.
Combining speed under sail with her crew's passion for history and archaeology, one of these proper yachts is the forty-four foot crewed charter sailing yacht T.G. Ellyson. Topside the TGE's expansive teak deck is free of obstruction, the rigging easily workable. Below decks there are two private cabins each accommodating two guests. A teak-paneled salon incorporates a fully-equipped galley and navigation station. Two water closets include fresh-water showers.
A second well-appointed and proper yacht is the British-flag motor yacht Miss Charlotte. This attractive green-hulled 49-foot cape trawler also offers two en-suite guest cabins each accommodating two guests. Still a third yacht worthy of special mention is the superbly maintained Astral Music, a 44' ketch flying the British red ensign which offers a spacious teak deck and exclusive appointments for two guests.
The crews of T.G. Ellyson, Miss Charlotte, and Astral Music have each sailed the Mediterranean for decades, propelling these yachts and others from Gibraltar to Lebanon, from Crete to Istanbul and beyond, including exhaustive cruising of the Aegean and eastern Mediterranean. Gordon Abercrombie, owner and skipper of the T.G. Ellyson, has cruised the Greek islands and coast of Turkey since 1980. Jennifer Abercrombie, English, Isabelle Outin, French, and others of the TGE crew have traveled extensively through both countries and possess a local familiarity and language fluency smoothing the way for TGE guests. With many years of eastern Mediterranean experience, William Lamb, owner of Miss Charlotte, is a long-time resident of Turkey, while Yuksel, his captain is a gifted chef, as well. John and Louise Helliwell, owners and crew of Astral Music, are both personable, endearing, and likely to become life-long friends. Island hop with them, explore the crossroads of history, enjoy crystal-clear seawater and out-of-the-way locales, meet their friends and acquaintances, and dine alfresco on a picturesque waterfront.
A typical day aboard any of these very special yachts begins with a view of water-side life in a Greek or Turkish town or of pine-clad slopes and clear seawater. Breakfast may be taken on deck or from a taverna or stone kiln ashore. During breakfast the guests plan their day. Hiking and exploring may come next, or sailing while trolling for sagacious sea life. Swim stops may be frequent, depending on inclination and destination. The destination may be an idyllic cove affording opportunity to snorkel or kayak, or simply to relax and read in the warmth of the sun. And in the evening guests may wish to enjoy catered dining or the campfire cuisine of an enterprising restaurateur skilled in the art of preparing fine regional food. Nearby there may be ancient Greek, Roman, or Byzantine ruins not often seen by tourists, or the ruins of a pirate village climbing slopes from which watchful eyes once peered out to sea. Alternatively the destination might be a charming town home to wily rug merchants, to silver shops, or to an agora or bazaar offering a myriad of shopping opportunities. And likely, in such a town, the dining will be memorable.
Here, there, or elsewhere, guests will be meeting and conversing with people of many nationalities and varied backgrounds, listening, learning, and experiencing the holiday of their lives. Charter a sailing yacht to cruise Greece! Or charter a motor yacht to cruise Turkey! Or charter a sailing yacht to do both!
