A SELECTION OF YACHTS YOU CAN TRUST
At Serenity Yachting, we don’t just charter yachts. We make friends and create memories that last a lifetime. Our crewed yacht charters take you to the places we love best: the secluded coves, the local beaches, the ancient ruins that can only be reached by boat. You’ll feast on Turkish cuisine prepared with fresh ingredients. And you’ll enjoy a level of service that is simply unmatched in Turkey. We are a family business, and our repeat guests tell us they like our friendliness, honesty and professional attitude. On a Serenity charter, you are always our honored guest. But we hope you’ll also become our friend.
Many of our guests tell us their Serenity charter yacht vacation was one of the best experiences of their lives. Our charter yachts travel the spectacular coastlines of Turkey, Greece and Croatia, taking you to charming coastal villages and secluded coves and beaches. Click below to see our yachts up close.
We act as yacht brokers for vessels we know very well. If you are looking to buy one of our yachts, we can quickly answer your questions and provide detailed information. If you’d like to sell your yacht, you can expect personal attention, an honest value assessment and a marketing plan designed to sell your yacht quickly and at the best price possible.
Successfully chartering a yacht takes experience, attention to detail and a solid marketing plan. Over the years, we’ve become quite good at all three, and we’ve built a reputation for excellence. When you hire us to manage your yacht charters, you’ll save time and money, keep your crew and yacht in top shape, and get the most from your investment. And importantly, you’ll be confident that your yacht is in good hands.
We make yachting more fun by helping you with the details. Our yacht management clients trust us to manage their yachts in a way that maintains their value and saves money in the long run. Depending on the size of your yacht and your goals, we can manage your maintenance, finances, crew or charters.
Our shipyard has built or refit vessels as small as 8 meters and as large as 46 meters. We’re different than many other shipyards because our team can take your boat building project from its earliest conception all the way to launch day. This means you can work directly with your shipbuilding team, saving time and cutting down on costs. And our approach ensures that every part of your project will meet Serenity’s high standards.
Unlike most yacht charter and management companies, our family business includes our own shipyard in Turkey. We have built and refit projects up to 46 meters in both wood and steel – including some of the Turkish gulets that we offer for charter. Our naval architects, project managers and post construction management team can handle every phase of a shipbuilding project in house – saving both time and money in the construction process.

We are a family run company whose motto is that our staff and customers should also be treated like family. Since beginning our operations in 2005, we have always placed customer satisfaction and loyalty above rapid growth. As a result, we have stamped our name on successful projects while also developing a sincere relationship with our clients, many of whom have become our friends. We look forward to meeting and following the same path you.
I love the fact that I now only have to enjoy my yacht while the management team at Serenity takes care of all the administrative duties.
