It is thought that the first settlement in Marmaris, whose history dates back to 3400 BC, began with the arrival of a tribe to the region, whose leader was called Kar. The area was then called Karla after him, and its location around the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas always made it an appealing region.
Suleyman the Magnificent assembled a force of 200,000 in 1522, whilst launching the siege of the Knights of St John's base in Rhodes (Rodos). Soon afterwards, he made the city more powerful with the rebuilding of the tiny castle overlooking the town. Lord Nelson and his entire fleet sheltered in the harbour in 1798, en route to Egypt to defeat Napoleon's armada at the Battle of Aboukir.
Marmaris therefore became a place where different civilisations reigned over time, and there is architectural and historical evidence of Egyptian, Asdur, Ion, Dor, Persian, Macedonian, Syrian, Roman, Byzantium, Seljuk and Ottoman presence.
Summers are extremely hot and dry, with daytime temperatures reaching up to 35 degrees, and winters are warm and wet, plunging to 5 degrees at night. The area is quite typical of a Mediterranean climate.
Once a sleepy fishing village, Marmaris has ballooned into one of the largest resorts on the Aegean coast, if not Turkey. Little of its history remains, as the town is now a modern development with tourism at its heart and soul. The population swells to a massive 200,000 in the summer, with most hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and shops catering to low-cost package holidays, although there are facilities for all budgets.
Despite the development which reaches around 10km along the west of the bay, Marmaris is also well-known for its expanse of green, present the whole year round thanks to the pine-covered hills which surround the town. There are many beaches around the bay, and there are ancient cities and seaside villages close by for day trips. The yacht harbour is the biggest and newest in Turkey, and therefore the busiest charter port especially for trips along the Turquoise Coast.
In addition to the climate, beaches and facilities of the town, the transportation infrastructure is a definite plus for attracting visitors. It has easy connections to the nearby airport Dalaman, ferries to Rhodes, and on the road to Datca and Fethiye. The harbour has attracted private boats from around the world, with yacht maintenance and production in the workshops on the Yalanci Strait. With the climate being comfortable even in winter, and the nearby impressive mountains and pine forests, Marmaris is likely to remain a popular and practical holiday spot for a long time

I would like to pass on my sincere thanks for arranging a really great boating holiday. We had never chartered a boat before and certainly never sailed in Turkey but you managed to simplify the whole process from beginning to end. From recommending the type of boat, arranging and talking through the contracts and in turn organizing the transfers to and from the boat, it was all executed perfectly. The boat itself (Rainbow) was outstanding, beautifully finished and very luxurious. The meals on the boat were also first class. Many thanks to you and your team it was gaily appreciated.
We all have liked a lot Boating Turkey services. The boat was excellent and excellent maintained. A really professional team helped to ensure a memorable holidays: since the transfer from airport, to the reception in gocek with a complete check list and briefing, to the check out with a really professional and specialized team to assure the boat was delivered to next customer in really good conditions. Congratulations!
Our sailing holiday with Boating Turkey was brilliant!
Excellent wind, not a cloud in the sky, dark blue and warm water – sailing for a week on an excellent 43 footer was for the less as well as for the more experienced sailors in the crew was an absolutely wonderful experience!
Service by staff, the boat (in excellent condition) and everything else, it could not have been better!
