The tradition of building ships in Bodrum is as old as the town, going back at least some 2500 years. History records that Artemisia, the ruler of Caria, commanded her own naval squadron in the battle of Salamis in 480 BC, lending credence to the belief that ships were built in or near the city of Halicarnassus, the ancient name of Bodrum.

The seafaring traditions of the Carians and Dorians, who lived together in Halicarnassus and supplied ships to Egyptian Pharaohs, add weight to the premise that shipbuilding here is an ancient craft. Late records, from the days of the Ottoman Empire, show that Bodrum shipwrights did built ships for the Ottoman navy.

   

 

Traditional yachts are built as motor/sailor yachts. The wooden material used in yacht construction are mainly pine, mahagony, oak and white oak. The masts are made of white oak or steel. Mechanical parts are generally imported and well known brands are prefered.

 

Interior design is built to the needs of the client for either private or commercial purposes. Depending on the yacht type, size and client's budget the construction of a yacht may take from 8 months to 24 months.
