Yes, in Turkey you can rent a boat with or without a skipper but in order to rent without, you will need a Certificate of Competence for all motorised boats and yachts bigger than 2.5 m (8.2 ft).

The climate in Turkey varies greatly depending on where you go, but generally, in its high season from May to October, you will see clear skies and beautiful waves. With an average temperature of 20°C (68°F), which rises to around 30°C (86°F) in the summer, and with perfect summer water temperatures, your sailboat rental vacation promises to be spectacular. Typically, August is the driest month in Turkey and autumn and winter can be really rainy. Renting a sailboat in Turkey is the best option if you are sailing, with the winds of meltemi and mud, coming from the north and southeast respectively. You should, however, always check the weather forecast before sailing in Turkey.
The best time for a sailboat rental in Turkey depends on what sort of holiday you want. If you want the best weather, you should go between May and October when the temperatures will be high and the water temperatures will be ideal for swimming. However, during this time, there will also be more people and boat prices are likely to be higher. If you want to avoid the crowds and don’t mind a bit of rain, you should go between November and April. Although the weather will be worse during this time, you can find some great deals on boats and you are assured a much quieter holiday.
