Aresteas Yachtıng About Us

Aresteas Yachting is founded in 2009 in Marmaris as a part of Yıldız Group , the head quarter is located in Istanbul .A city at the crossroads of East and West, Istanbul has been capital to the Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman empires. This legendary city lies on the shores of the Marmara Sea, the Golden Horn and the Bosporus, making transport by water as important as that by road as well a safe and strategically important natural harbor.

Turkey is surrounded by sea on three sides, is a natural bridge between Asia and Europe. Turkey borders the Black Sea, the Mediterranean, the Aegean and the Sea of Marmara. As a result of Turkey’s geographical location and global developments, Turkey’s yachtbuilding industry has been boosted.

Shipbuilding is a 600-year old tradition in Anatolia. The first shipyard was established in 1390, during the Ottoman reign in Gelibolu. In 1455, the foundation of the İstanbul Haliç Shipyard, whose stone pools have survived to date, was laid by Fatih Sultan Mehmet. By the 16th century, Turkish shipyards were already the largest in the world. Following the foundation of the Turkish Republic, shipyards were given special importance. They were mostly located around the Bosporus and Haliç (the Golden Horn), but after 1969 they were moved to Aydınlı Bay, Tuzla.

Traditional yachtbuilding skills combined with modern techniques and education has enabled the Turkish yachtbuilding industry to develop into an internationally known trademark since the early 1990’s.
