Boat Rentals in Istanbul

Istanbul, formerly known as Constantinople, is the largest city and principal seaport of Turkey. Over 15 million people live there, and its total area comprises over 5 thousand square kilometres. It is the only city in the world to sit on two continents simultaneously (Europe and Asia), which is a very interesting fact to know before you visit! Boat rentals in Istanbul are very popular amongst both locals and tourists.

The boats are an essential means of transport for those Istanbul locals who live and work between the two continents. You’ll notice that there are many docks both on the European and the Asian side of the city. On the Asian side, the principal docks are Üsküdar (in the north) and Kadıköy (in the south). On the European side, you can find Eminönü (to the south of the Galata bridge) and Beşiktaş (between the two bridges on the Bosphorus).

How much does it cost to rent a boat in Istanbul?

When you charter a yacht in Istanbul, the cost will depend on a few factors. The season in which you embark, the type and size of the boat and the number of guests will impact the final cost. Including a skipper and crewed yacht will usually increase the cost of your boat hire.

During this period, you'll encounter mild to warm temperatures, calm seas, and clear skies, providing ideal conditions for sailing. The summer peak (June to August) offers the warmest weather and is perfect for water activities. While winter (November to March) sees cooler temperatures and more rain, sailing is less common.
