In Europe, Greece has been the premium yacht charter holiday venue
for three, almost four decades, and is still far ahead of the relative newcomers of Croatia and Turkey
due to the obvious advantages of 1) far more coastline, 2) a lot more yachts and yacht charter companies, 3) and cheaper prices on yacht charter holidays.
The only exception seems to concern the motorsailers (caiques and gulets)
, that are often cheaper yet also more luxurious near Bodrum, Turkey. Moreover, Greece offers few of these blue cruises or blue voyages
, so it is very worthwhile to charter a Turkish gulet (goulette) in the Dodecanese
instead of a Greek yacht. Note, that due to the slow maximum speed the Turkish gulets won't often venture further into the Aegean: the Cyclades plus the northern parts of the Eastern Sporades are unfortunately out of reach. The wooden replicas you see in for instance Santorini might turn out to be very basic (without any comfort of luxury) and are most likely used for day cruises (no sleeping quarters or air-conditioning)
For all other types of yacht charter holidays, Greece definitely has the advantage.
