2020 was a busy season with high boat traffic!
Stating that Yalıkavak Marina has won the appreciation of its customers and guests by making a superior effort in the fight against Covid-19, Akaltan said; “In 2020, regardless of the pandemic effect, there was a significant increase in the number of long-term contracts. We continued our operations by strictly following all health and safety precautions and left the season behind without encountering the slightest negativity. Thanks to some important projects we have carried out, we have raised the already high luxury tourism profile of Bodrum, and we have created new business opportunities by increasing the visits of high-spending travelers. We opened the first Novikov Bodrum restaurant as well as the first Dior pop-up store in Turkey. We went even further and worked on a very special Bodrum collection with Dior.”
We expect to reach close to 100% occupancy in 2021!
Stating that they will continue to work harder in 2021 to expand the luxury possibilities of Yalıkavak Marina in the ultra-luxury retail, jewelry/watch, and food & beverage sector, Akaltan said, “For this purpose, we have built a highly professional work team and we are working really hard. We aim to increase the number of high-income foreign tourists visiting our marina and therefore, to increase the foreign currency inflow to our country. We are currently in close contact with elite brands in the upper segment of the world market. When we complete our agreements, we aim to actualize investments that are extremely beneficial for both our region and our country by providing foreign exchange inflows. As Yalikavak Marina, our goal is to make Turkey the world’s best and most professional luxury resort destination. More than 1000 boats visited our marina in 2020, and more than 100 of them were superyachts, including the iconic M/Y Madame Gu, M/Y Voice, M/Y Arrow, M/Y Vertige. Since the tourists coming to our country with superyachts are the group that leaves the most foreign currency per person, the incoming number is of great importance. The number of visitors we expect to host in our marina this year is 2 million and we expect to reach nearly 100% occupancy. As Yalıkavak Marina, we are reinforcing our position of being the center of attraction of the region with our new investments and prestigious stores/brands.
