Turkish cuisine is primarily influenced by its location between Europe and Asia. The meal often starts with mezze or small dishes served before the main course to stimulate the appetite. Mezze can include hummus, stuffed grape leaves, or dough pockets filled with meat or cheese.

There are also many vegetable dishes and traditional meat kebabs of lamb, chicken, or beef for main dishes. Enjoy Bodrum while in town, but don’t worry; the private chefs aboard Bodrum yacht charters will prepare delicious meals catered to your tastes.

Turkey offers motor boats and a variety of unique wooden Turkish gulets, also known as motorsailers. These large boats can accommodate more guests than most yachts, so please inquire if you have a large group of more than 12. Please browse some of the boats available for our Bodrum yacht charters. East Med Yacht LE PIETRE is a good choice for your charter.
