With immediate effect, Engel & Völkers is now also represented with its Yachting business division in Turkey. The office is situated in a prime location directly alongside the Milta Marina, the yacht marina in Bodrum, which ranks amongst the finest and most modern ports in the region since the completion of renovation work in 2000.
“Bodrum is the main centre for yachting enthusiasts on Turkey’s Aegean coast and a popular destination for discerning visitors throughout the year,” said Heike Tanbay, Licence Partner at Engel & Völkers Yachting in Bodrum, describing the location of her Yachting shop. Heike Tanbay has also been the licence partner of an Engel & Völkers residential property shop in Bodrum since 2007.
She intends to make active use of the synergies between the two business divisions. “Many property owners in Turkey are also very interested in yachts, just as many yacht owners value high-quality real estate,” commented Mrs. Tanbay, summing up the mutual benefit. “And the global network of Engel & Völkers also grants us access to international contacts,” Mrs. Tanbay added.
Bodrum is one of the oldest coastal cities in Turkey and boasts many culturally historic sights. The entire region around Bodrum is a popular destination for charter routes due to its many bays with ample opportunities for bathing, as well as its geographical proximity to the Greek islands.
