WARNING TO ALL YACHTS IN TURKEY!!!
We pumped out in Antalya on arrival last year, September, and left the marina, and Turkey, the next day for 7 months overseas. Our vessel was on the hardstand the entire time we were away. When we returned to Antalya, we anti-fouled and launched the boat, sailing from Antalya to the Datca area in June.

We have exceedingly large tanks that can hold for several weeks before needing to pump out. We proceeded to Datca to pump out but they did not have the correct fittings at their facility to perform a pumpout. We were told to come back in a week and it should be ok to pump out then. We still had enough room in tanks, approximately 85% full since leaving Antalya in June. We were grateful that we had large tanks. Amazingly, in all the travels we have had in Turkey, it is very rare to see any sizable vessel pumping out on shore anywhere.

The day before we were due to return to Datca to pump out, or attempt to pump out, the Coast Guard visited the anchorage, 10 NM east of Datca, and looked at our paperwork. As we had not pumped out since September, it appears they felt we must have pumped out somewhere other than at a designated facility. They did not take into account the boat was unattended on the hardstand in Antalya for 7 months. We subsequently acquired a letter from Setur Marina Antalya confirming this but Coast Guard officials were not interested in seeing the letter or hearing anything about it. We were told that it is deemed that the usage per person per day for waste water is 30 litres. That means they considered that we have 60 liters per day going into our tanks. That is absurd. The Coast Guard informed us that we should be pumping out EVERY 2 WEEKS!

In Datca we were told that we would not be authorized to leave Turkey without paying the fine. We paid to the tax office 9,500.25 TL!! Paying within 30 days gave us a 25% discount on the fine which was 12,267.00 TL ($4,100.00 USD)!!

We enquired about appealing the decision but were told by all we spoke to that no-one has ever been successful in appealing, regardless of the facts or proof of any kind that can prove nothing was done wrong. We enquired at Customs, Datca, regarding the appeals process and they would not inform us where to start apart from saying "Go see your agent". Our agent, the biggest in Datca, said it was a waste of time and money to even try.

We do not understand the paperwork as it is in Turkish. I refused to sign as I did not know the contents. The paperwork was written on the deck of a gulet anchored in the same bay on 11th July at 1430 hrs, which, according to the paperwork they presented was when the offense occurred, but we are not sure. The officials were told our tanks were just over just over 85% full at that time and I offered to show them but they were not interested. I informed the officials that we tried to pump out in Datca and was informed by the official that "It is not our problem!" We have subsequently found out that the Datca pump out facility has been inoperative for a long time. Therefore, perhaps, virtually all the boats in Datca may be contravening the laws.

BEWARE IF YOU PLAN TO VISIT TURKEY. MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR BLUE CARD SCANNED EVERY 2 WEEKS OR PAY A HEFTY FINE.

March 29, 2016 Travel WARNING(Not an Alert) was issued US State Department--This is for Izmir and Mugla provinces on the western coast most popular with yachts and previously considered not to be in a (too)risky area. The US Government is ordering the forced evacuation of all family members of US Government civilians in those provinces. ALSO, they have "restricted official travel to Turkey to 'mission-critical' travel only". The Warning is here- https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings/turkey-travel-warning.html

This comment from a long-term liveaboard/cruiser based in Marmaris.

Where have all the cruising boats wintering in Turkey gone?

In the past 8 years at least, during autumn, winter, and spring, the marinas in Marmaris have been full with 45-60 yachtsmen/women staying in Marmaris full time. This population, of course, is great for social activities and an interesting blend of personalities and cultures in the yachting community.

This year however, the yachting community population is so low that it’s a struggle to get 8-10 persons together for any kind of activity or get-together. I've never seen so few people in Marmaris Bay!

More yachts appear to be berthing for the winter in Finike, which is much further south of the usual and popular cruising area of this part Turkey, and many are leaving for a winter in Greece, Malta, Crete and other Mediterranean ports.

From emails I have received and face-to-face conversations with departing cruisers, possible reasons for this exodus may be:
1) An increase in marina charges (mooring, lift and launch, electricity, etc.) not only in Marmaris Bay but in Turkey in general.
2) A fear of political instability (although this hasn't had an effect on Marmaris and other northern/western ports and communities).
3) Changes in residence permits (1 year vs 5 years, application procedures etc.), plus local and governmental health insurance fees rising and their non-recognition of international health care companies.

About the only positive thing about Turkey reported to me by foreign cruisers is the favourable exchange rate of the GBP and USD (1 USD at today's rate is 2.98 Turkish Lira and 1 GBP over 4 Turkish Lira).

Transit Log: Regardless of what an agent tells you, you ONLY have to amend your transit log when you add or subtract CREW or CAPTAIN. If you have GUESTS coming, their names are NOT required to be on the transit log. If you are in Marmaris and using Ankar Agency for help, she will tell you differently. But she is wrong. Read the rules in English associated with the transit log. It never mentions the word "guests." If this was required, every Turkish owner of an American flagged boat would be updating his transit log every weekend. And they are NOT! So do not be fooled into doing so. The agents that tell you this are just trying to line their pockets with your money.

The general rule of thumb when cruising is to get 3 quotes for any service or product before paying any money.

On my way from Finike to Fethiye my alternator and/or my regulator stopped working and in Fethiye I was recommended an English engineer for repairs. When I phoned him he said, I will send my electrical engineer, but in fact sent someone from another company, who came and removed my alternator and regulator.

Next day he returned saying that they had bought a new one as the other would cost nearly as much to repair. Stupidly - I must have been mesmerised - when he said 'you don't want that old one?', I said no. That's not like me!

Next day I found that the new alternator was very inefficient and as I had since been told by my son that my Mastervolt alternator and Alpha-pro regulator were expensive and should be repaired and reinstalled, I asked the engineer to return them. When he did this we saw at once that the alternator he brought was not mine, this one had obviously been underwater for a considerable time.

To me, it seems the two are running a scam to not repair broken parts, claiming it would cost too much, selling the cruiser a new piece of kit and not returning the old one (i.e. refurbishing it and selling it on).

I want to warn other cruisers that this kind of thing is happening here and to take care.

Checking in and out of Tukey and exchanging crew and skippers- no problem. I came to Istambul with crew, we made crew exchange- only needed agreement signed by both skippers, that we exchange crew there, and confirmation from charter agency, that htey know it. We had to purchase new transit log, that's obvoius. Check out was made in Ayvalik- highly recommend!With no agent and problems, You just need to take a walk to ferry termianl to do the clearance,and back to harbourmaster, which is close to the marina. I'll mention that yacht was Greek flag, I expected some turbulences, but was nicely surprised:)

We purchased a US registered Farr 50PH in September '14. The boat was in Didim at D-Marin marina where we left her after a quick shakedown cruise. We are secured with YachtWORKS who are resolving a number of issues we discovered on the shakedown. Our experience with Can (John) the owner of YachtWORKShas been extremely good. They are professional and the pricing reasonable for the work to date...particularly a new epoxy barrier coat system. The marina is the best ive seen with travel lifts to 600 tons albeit 4500€ for the Winter including lift. Our survey experience was also exceptional with Yusuf Civelekoglu of Marine Solutions in Bodrum. Our short time in Turkey allowed is to sail onto the North side of the Datca peninsula which was a wonderful opening into Turkey. Landside a trip to Effes is not to be missed along with Didima. New to posting here so...more in the Spring of 2015

Some Australian friends that had their boat shipped to Istanbul, and whose 90 day visa expires August 25, were told that it was absolutely impossible to get a residence permit, or even an appointment to see about a residence permit, before August 25.

They wrote to me and said that they would be wintering in Greece as a result.

I just spoke with Samet, an agent here in Finike, that I've known for about five years, and he said that it used to be difficult, but recently it is very easy. There is no longer a requirement for a Marina contract, or Turkish bank account. The only requirement is that you have health insurance, and if it is from another country, it must be international health insurance, that will cover you while you are here. And that needs to be translated into English. You will need some photos and other miscellaneous.

He says that if anyone wants to contact him, that he will be happy to help. : info@finikeyachting.com

If people will contact him he will help them to get it done in Kemer. N36.60120 E30.54262 (There are several Kemers.) He says it usually takes one day. It is now very easy.

I have no idea what his fees are, but he is a really nice man that has helped me many times over the years.

I know there is still a mountain of confusion about this, but Samet, felt that it was no longer difficult, if you had the translation of the correct kind of insurance. In my American case, my very inexpensive supplemental insurance, that is a supplement to standard Medicare, claims that it will cover me for emergency rooms here, at a maximum charge of US$50.00, and a medevac will cost me a maximum of US$500.00. But read your fine print. Mine actually sounds too good to be true. Best idea is to never need it.

And, it would be good if people can relay their actual, first hand experiences, on this subject. So many of the emails seem to be rumors. And the most popular rumors are the ones that make your eyes get big, and your blood pressure boil. So, be careful what you forward.

If you want a reliable maintenance company to handle all your boat needs in or around Marmaris we highly recommend Mavimar, owned by Ercan Erkut, former naval officer,yacht builder and restorer. We have had Ercan oversee our winter work for the last 5 years on our 14 meter sailboat. We've had our boat entirely painted, electrical, plumbing, canvas and many other jobs completed ontime, at the agreed price and to our complete satisfaction. His office is located on the street opposite the tennis courts behind Netsel Marina. www.mavimar.com

Checking out of Turkey at Bodrum: We just checked out of Turkey at Bodrum. We were told that we would need an agent, but when we asked the Harbor Master he said as we only had two people on board, we did not need an agent. We did contact our agent in Marmaris, Nadide, who entered our info 'into the system' for no charge. We first visited the Harbor Master, then the Port Police (passport Control), and finally Customs. No cost and about one hour--all three offices are right near the castle and are within walking distance. Nadide at Anker Marine, Marmaris, will answer any questions and she was a great help.
