Turkey is a fabulous destination for food lovers, with a culinary heritage shaped by diverse influences from the many cultures that have passed through and settled here. Specialties from the Ottoman court, traditions from the Anatolian heartland and a vibrant Aegean and Mediterranean kitchen contribute to a truly unforgettable culinary experience.

During a Neyzen yacht charter vacation, menus on board can be pre planned and discussed with guests. Our chefs accommodate special dietary requirements and provide alternatives for guests with allergies or intolerances. Meat in Turkey is Halal, and Kosher preferences can also be catered to.



"You are worthy of your excellent reputation. We feel privileged to have sailed with you. May you always have the wind at your back and the warmth of the sun on your faces!"

Liz & Henry Feldman

"What a fantastic week with a very special crew who looked after us really, really well. I don’t know why I waited 53 years to visit Turkey- a spectacular coastline and everything we dreamed of."

Niell and Lynn Brown

"Knidos, Simi, quiet coves, cliff diving, spear fishing, snorkelling, sleeping to the boat’s gentle rocking, laughter and scuba diving, just begin to describe what we enjoyed…We never dreamed that our time with you would be so wonderful!"

Faggioli, Donnell, Wang & Sternberg Families

"The Neyzen company has extended the greatest courtesy, creativity, and genuine friendship we have ever encountered anywhere we have travelled in the world. Every day was an adventure and every meal a culinary surprise and delight."

Danny & Carolyn Dansen

"To say this trip was epic is an understatement. As vegetarians we really appreciated your flexibility with fantastic food! Thanks Captain for the guided walks to the orchard, castle, ruins and more. We had a blast exploring Turkey and Greece and have a special place in our hearts for the Turkey you showed us!"

Kathy Bailey

"Excellent service in terms of local history, delightful food and attention to every need. Your professionalism, humour and attention to detail shows why you deserve the highest accolades. You have given us a lifetime memory!"

Ben & Lucie

"Our first trip on the Aegean was extraordinary, thanks to you. The coastline you all showed us gave us a personal glimpse of what Homer wrote about. Thank you all for a memorable voyage."

Mary Ann & Mike Weston

"Tamera - thank you for a fantastic vacation on the newly re-furbished Flas VII. The boat is truly one of a kind - the cabins (and the bathrooms) are better than a five star hotel. Your crew, captained by Levent, was attentive, professional and extremely friendly. The meals on the boat were better than any of the restaurants we have tried in Turkey. This is our third trip on your boats and we will come back again."

Joe Freeburn and Carl Oster

"Hi, The gulet was excellent, completely relaxing with very congenial fellow passengers and the best food. Not sure how I maintained such a ravenous appetite while doing little more than breathing but every meal was a miracle-the more so for the size of the galley. The service was ever attentive and genuinely friendly. It was great to see the beautiful locales visited on the Nikola."


"We can't stop talking about our trip of a lifetime ... in early June. The entire trip was flawless. The crew on Flas VII were unbelievably accommodating, friendly, and professional. They never stopped smiling and attended to our every need. You should be very proud of them. Thank you for arranging excellent accommodations everywhere we went in Turkey. You showcase Turkey very well. Thank you very much. P.S. The Master Suite was very special."
