Join Multihull Solutions and Mariner Boating Holidays for The Mediterranean Escapade 2022 and sail the Lycian Coast of Turkey. The event will again be co-hosted by Mariner Boating Holidays and the Asia Pacific Fountaine Pajot dealer, Multihull Solutions. Their two hosts, Michael and Marita, live on their own Fountaine Pajot 45 in the Med.
With a mix of two great cultures, the 15-night itinerary offers the best of both worlds: busy historical ports and tiny seaside villages with everything in between. Sailing the Lycian Coast will appeal to anyone who enjoys variety, relaxation and a bit of adventure.
Sail in a small flotilla of Fountaine Pajot catamarans and experience this ancient, welcoming paradise from its best angle – the sea. Join the thousands of travellers who have fallen in love with these gorgeous islands and the Lycian Coast all steeped in history and culture.
The yacht base in Marmaris for the rally charter fleet is at Yat Marin and the hospitable restaurant in the marina is well known for providing a great final night dinner and party. Any night owls might then enjoy a final fling on the waterfront in Marmaris. These days Marmaris is home to a fleet of massive private boats and possibly the loudest night club ally anywhere in the world.
Late spring in Turkey is crisp and bright. Ashore poppies are in flower and locals are looking forward to greeting summer visitors with welcoming smiles. Maximum temperatures will be in the high 20’s and the winds will follow the fleet in the south easterly general direction of the coast of Turkey and the chain of nearby Greek Islands. The yachts are freshly launched and in their prime after their winter ashore - ready to begin the season.
The Mediterranean Escapade fleet in 2022 will be enhanced by three 2020 arrivals into the charter fleet; a Lucia 40, an Astrea 42 and a Saona 47. There will only be seven yachts for a group of 32 people, to be hosted by a combined Mariner Boating and Multihull Solutions team. Also included in the team is a local who will be the language interface and technician, on call 24/7 to ensure the optimum function of the yachts.
