S/Y Ann Sofi is a Bavaria 44 owners version based in the 5 star blue flag Didim Marina, South West Turkey. Ideally situated to cruise the Turkish coast and the Greek Dodacanese islands. Can be chartered as bareboat if you have relevant papers or comes with skipper and hostess. Maximum 6 adults + 1 child for bareboat charter. Maximum 4 guests if skippered by us. These numbers ensure maximum comfort and privacy, however it is also possible to sleep a child or small adult in the salon.

Didim Marina offers luxury as a base to start your charter with a hotel, beach club, yacht club, infinity pool, top class restaurant, on site supermarket, tennis course, fully equipped health club and gymnasium, beauty spa. Didim is 90 minutes transfer from Bodrum Milas or Izmir airport. The hotel suites are pure luxury if some of your party would prefer to be land based for some of the stay, offering the perfect solution for those without sea legs. Please enquire for hotel prices.

We are also able to start charters from other locations by request. Please email us in the first instance with your requirements so that we can put together a tailor made package to suit.

We are flexible on start dates and durations and subject to availability will try to accommodate all requests. We are also able to deliver the boat to other ports for an extra charge. Please contact us with your requirements. If you have relevant qualifications you can charter the boat yourself. Otherwise skipper and hostess come with the boat and we can provide sailing tuition for no extra. A great way to learn and gain confidence and after a week you would be competent. Itineraries can be arranged to suit your requirements and timescales.

Sailing can be both relaxing and exhilarating. During the months of May through to September weather is predictably hot. We can arrange your transfers from the airport to join the boat. On arrival we will carry out a full safety brief and if you are taking a skippered charter we will discuss the itinerary for the period. An example would be across the Gulluk bay to Bodrum, around the Bodrum peninsula taking in bays along the way, around the Gekova bay and back to Didim. Alternatively across the bay to Kalymnos and Leros, along to Patmos and Lipsi and back to Didim. A few days across to Samos or Kos. The choice is entirely yours although often weather and wind direction dependent. Our aim is for you to enjoy sailing as much as we do.

Of course if you bareboat charter we can advise and recommend routes if you wish. We leave you with all the relevant charts.

The Aegean Coast region

South west Turkey on Aegean Coast. Ideally located for access to the Turkish coastline and the Greek Dodacanese islands.


Bodrum-Milas International Airport is 90 km away and Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport is 145 km away by road.

Airport transfers take approx 90 minutes and we can organise these on your behalf through our local contacts.

Easy access to numerous historic sites and villages including Ephesus, Syrince (wine making region), Lake Bafa and its numerous fish restaurants, Heraklion ruins

Didyma is just 4 km away by local bus or taxi and well worth a visit. There are numerous fresh fish restaurants opposite.

Sailing is a joy in this area and the sea is crystal clear with unspoilt bays and often the opportunity for dolphin watching as you sail. It is also possible to spot turtle. Unlike the Fethiye / Marmaris region, there are relatively few sailing yachts and you can often have the whole bay to yourselves to enjoy peace and tranquility.


Annual Average Temperature 18,4ºC

Summer Average Temperature 27,3ºC

Winter Average Temperature 10,5ºC

Sailing conditions are ideal between May and October each year with July and August being the hottest months. It is rare to experience rain during these months.


Didim marina is located in the 3rd beach area of Altinkum (which means Golden sands). The resort of Altinkum is 1km away and is a bustling tourist resort with hundreds of restaurants and shops selling clothing, shoes, jewellery. A large choice of 'genuine imitation' goods available. There is however no need to leave the marina which has some designer boutiques, coffee shops and a supermarket for all your supplies and these can be delivered to the boat for you. There is also a serviced laundry on site.

We have a pair of electric bicycles on board if you wish to explore the local area.

"Beautifully kept yacht and great experience"

We spent a wonderful 5 days on board the 'Ann Sofi' as a skippered charter. The yacht itself is very well maintained by the owners, the master cabin is extremely comfortable and spacious. We traveled as a family and our daughter had one of the aft cabins which was ideal for her.
This was our first sailing experience as a family and one we all enjoyed very much indeed. Our adventure started at Didium Marina then onto five of the Greek Dodecanese islands eventually ending up in Turgutreis Marina, stopping along the way for snorkeling and each evening in a different location, all of which were delightful.
The owners were more than happy to impart their knowledge also letting our daughter take the helm whenever possible. We had outstanding breakfasts and lunches prepared for us on board and felt more than taken care of.
All in all this was a fabulous introduction to sailing and has certainly given all the family the sailing bug.

Thanks for your feedback which is much appreciated and helpful for future guests. We hope to welcome you back again some time in the future.
