These days it’s all about figures as the year 2012 ended and many people are crossing the line to make the total. It seems that, despite all the talk of economic crisis and less spending, Turkey can boast an impressive $23.4 billion revenue from tourism last year.
The Turkish yacht charter market seems to be booming these days. Not a day passes without some news of a new marina or marine project coming from Turkey which indicates a dynamic market that has space to increase.
The Turkish Mediterranean coast has long been a preferred destination for many cruising sailors but now it seems that blossoming yacht charter industry in Turkey is looking to expand on some other regions. News has just emerged that Turkey is planning to build two brand new marinas in the Istanbul region, in an effort to direct some of the summer tourist crowds to the ancient city.
