Hundreds of yachting companies offer Blue Cruise gulet vacations in the Mediterranean. But we're different. Very different. We create dream vacations, one cruise at a time.

Arkadaslik Yachting

Established in 2013 by Canadian expat Sue Fockner and her Turkish partner Captain Oktay Aşık, Arkadaslik Yachting is a luxury yacht charter business with a difference. Based in Fethiye harbour (a tourism hub on the Turquoise Coast), we offer luxury yacht charters along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey and through the Greek Dodecanese islands on our classic Turkish gulet, Arkadaslik.

What sets us apart?

We love what we do - and it shows! From our behind-the-scenes work in the shipyard to hosting elaborate engagement parties onboard Arkadaslik, we genuinely enjoy our work and our guests. Guests sense this positive attitude - and frequently comment on. We believe it main reasons they refer us to their friends and family, and vacation with us year after year.

Trip Advisor Guest Review

...We chose to do a 4 night cruise run by Sue and Captain Oktay who were amazing! ,,, Their hospitality was very welcoming from the moment we stepped onto the yacht to the very end where Sue even escorted us to a car hire place so we could continue our holiday around Fethiye. We were made to feel very welcomed...
