Turkish Delight on board QUEEN OF MAKRI

Recently launched by Megri Yacht Ltd in Turkey, and delivered in early 2021, custom-built motor sailer QUEEN OF MAKRI is a stunning charter yacht, packed with amenities and run by a passionate crew.


For charterers looking to explore Turkish waters in style, 37m QUEEN OF MAKRI will turn heads in every port with her outstanding design. Offering guests sublime comfort, her wide beam affords luxurious accommodation and abundantly spacious living areas. Beautiful woods combine with the contemporary interior décor to create a relaxed ambience throughout, while extensive deck spaces ensure plenty of opportunity for socialising and sunbathing. Whether dining on deck, relaxing on the giant sun pad or simply relaxing in the salon, the choice of zones guests can enjoy is impressive. A rare advantage is the ample accommodation for up to twelve guests in six staterooms, comprising two full-width masters, three doubles and one twin stateroom, all with en suite facilities.

Equipped with a superb range of water sports equipment, guests can expect plenty of fun in the sun, expertly supervised by the deck crew. From her 3-seater Seadoo to water-skis, SUP to inflatable tows, there will never be a dull moment for activity seekers with so many toys to choose from. If you don’t want to dive in, soak up the sun on the beach club platform and enjoy the fantastic view. With impeccable service from her attentive crew of six, every small detail during a charter will be thought of and every request catered for.

QUEEN OF MAKRI is the ideal option for charterers who may be looking to enjoy an extended summer season thanks to the mild Turkish climate, warm waters and beautiful coastline.  The ultimate getaway awaits with a personal touch from her top-level crew.


The team on board were delighted to share their experience so far with us and keen to highlight the charter opportunities guests can enjoy when exploring Turkey on board this exceptional yacht.

Welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable, Captain Veysel Bozüyük spent his childhood by the sea in Antalya, fuelling his ambition to become a captain. Driven by passion and plenty of hard work, Veysel has now amassed some 20 years in the yachting industry, commenting wisely on his career, “it is fair to say that yesterday’s desire makes me today’s captain.”

Speaking of his brand-new charge, he remarks on QUEEN OF MAKRI’s superb volume and exceptional comfort, “with her spacious cabins and wonderful deck dining, she really is an exclusive charter yacht – one of only two so far in this build.” Excited to welcome guests on board and show them the treasures of the Turkish coastline, both Captain Veysel and his crew aim to create an immersive experience. “Turkey carries amazing cultural heritage, filled with so many charming places, fascinating history plus the opportunity for wonderful local experiences”, he states with contagious enthusiasm.


It is clear the enthusiastic crew share his passion, describing the special moments and unforgettable memories that are made on a yacht charter, “the golden hours on deck are a pretty amazing experience for everyone, watching the sun set and the view change is truly magical” they explain. A close-knit crew, all from different regions in Turkey, their knowledge of the locale is extensive, and they clearly thrive from being at sea, “we are a family together on board and work well as a professional team. All of us welcome the amazing opportunities on QUEEN OF MAKRI – it motivates us, and we really love what we do.”


Bringing his vast global experience to the yacht, Chef Fettah has previously been able to call no less than seven countries his home. Absorbing different cultures and styles of cuisine, this today is reflected in his delicious and diverse creations. Setting up the galley on a brand-new yacht has been an exciting challenge for Chef Fetta, who comments “I have drawn on my 20 years’ experience as a chef and employed my organisational and management skills to become fully established on board. The galley has been well equipped, and it is a good space to work efficiently.” Relishing the opportunity to produce exciting fare for guests he notes, “Turkish food is all about big and traditional flavours but I also enjoy producing different worldwide cooking styles, plus modern Turkish cuisine. My signature dish of stuffed plums is always popular!”. Guests cruising on QUEEN OF MAKRI are certainly in for a treat!
