Question Buying a fishing boat in Turkey....

We touched on this subject some time ago when Mushtaq was interested in buying a small boat suitable for fishing.

At the time, someone posted, that there were certain procedures to be followed, much like buying a car. Personally I have never come across this in Kusadasi however, we never arrived at a conclusion and I was wondering if anyone here has researched this.

Some of the fishing boats in Kusadasi harbour that are for sale, are going for less than 1000 sterling. Seems a good price to me.

Mooring here is very cheap. Around 25 lira a month.

Re: Buying a fishing boat in Turkey....

I think the problem arises when boat is over a certain lengh
you have to have a captains qualification Apparently this is
almost impossible to attain as goalposts move
we have a small motor boat that we keep in sogut and have
no problems....so far

Re: Buying a fishing boat in Turkey....

What sort of price for a small motor boat?
And where do you look?

Re: Buying a fishing boat in Turkey....

Theres a couple on Ginos who operate in Marmaris and Kusadasi.

These are brokerage so inflated prices. Look around and I know you will find cheaper, and of course moorings are a important part of the cost too.

Trailers for many of the smaller boats are hard to find.

Have a look here

I was told by the mayor there is no mooring charge at Akbuk harbour, which they plan to make bigger soon.

Re: Buying a fishing boat in Turkey....

That maybe the case now but as demand increases and berths become more scarce, it can only be a matter of time before commercialism takes over.

The marina in Akbuk probably sees little new traffic, Belidiye more than likely sees very little income too from the locals, but a marina is always a good earner and I am pretty sure they will capitalise on its potential before too long, or maybe make the mistake and lease it to a foreigner.

Re: Buying a fishing boat in Turkey....

To sail any boat with an engine you need your amatuer Captains licence.
You can take the exam on the first Wedsnesday of each month in Izmir.
You need to have the normal health checks too beforehand.
Hubbie just got his licence.
He's after a small yacht ASAP.
