Who we are?

Yildiz Yachting has been owned and run by British/Turkish couple David and Nükhet since June 2008 and was founded by Dutch couple, Kees and Jolien, in 1992.


Our booking office is based in Bitez near to Bodrum. This is where we deal with all the administration connected with your sailing holiday, including bookings from agents and direct clients as well as pre-orders of items such as outboard, SUP and Wi-Fi. Transfers* are also organised, transit logs are completed, etc, etc.

Our priority is to ensure that every client has a carefree and wonderful holiday, therefore if you have any special needs or requests please contact us. We will do our very best to assist you. Likewise if you need any information about your yacht or the sailing area just let us know. The Yildiz Yachting office team speaks English and Turkish.

At our base in Fethiye, our fleet is cared for by highly motivated staff under the direction of David. Turkish and English are spoken at our Fethiye base.

Our team carries out most maintenance and technical repairs in-house, including full checks on every yacht prior to charter as well as the annual winter maintenance programme. During the winter all our yachts and catamarans are lifted out for hull checks and antifouling. All systems, sails and inventory are also checked and repaired or replaced if necessary.

Our cleaning team also plays an important role in getting your yacht ready for your charter as the cleanliness and appearance of your yacht (both inside and out) is extremely important to us.

Every yacht has a mobile telephone on board so that you can easily contact our head office or managers (or flotilla leaders if you are sailing with the flotilla).

* We only use transfer companies that meet all Turkish legal requirements and are properly insured.
