Cesme Marina - refer a friend
What are your reasons for choosing Cesme Marina?
Cesme Marina is the perfect location for a yachtsman!
Located in one of the world’s most favourite sea tourism locations within the Aegean Sea. The area around Cesme Marina offers unique natural bays, beautiful islands and exotic nature. Cesme is rich in history and culture, as is one of the oldest seaports, but in touch with the 21st century and tourism habits in touch with the city, providing visitors with a plethora of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. Approximately 45 minutes from Istanbul, boat owners can be on their boat within the hour and with thanks to the Adnan Menderes Airport, Cesme Marina is a favourite destination for international travel.
Why do you recommend Cesme Marina to your friends?
The “Refer a Friend” scheme has enabled us to spread the word successfully and allowed me the added benefit of receiving a 5% discount with each new boat introduced to Cesme Marina.
This has created a loyal following of friends within the network which in turn has helped create a neat club, who each have personal recommendations to berth in the marina. I can thoroughly recommend Cesme Marina to my friends due to the fact the team at Cesme Marina have always looked after me.
The team at Cesme have become my friends and make me and my family feel safe and secure with all our boating needs. It is with this feeling in our hearts that we wish to invite more and more friends to enjoy this experience too.
What has impressed you the most in Cesme Marina?
Cesme Marina is a forward thinking and well developed marina offering 5* facilities throughout the year. Cesme Marina continues to strive for a world class service and encourages good environmental practice, which we can all learn and benefit from moving forward.
The supportive attitude towards Ege Açık Deniz Yat Kulübü, in which I am a Vis Commodore, ensures that future racing organisations will make great contributions to both the club and marina. At the start of 2017, we attended Izmir Winter Trophy Races which includes 12 races with a minimum 30 participant yachts. We are so excited about ARKAS Aegean Link race held between Cesme Marina and Chios at 23rd to 27th August. Following this, we will then attend Izmir Autumn Trophy races which will start in October and finish in December. I can truly say that race lovers will be satisfied to race in Cesme Marina!
What are your recommendations for those choosing Cesme Marina in the future?
As a boat-owner, I have enjoyed Cesme Marina for many years and I would therefore actively encourage more and more guests to visit this gem in the Aeagean Sea which I am so fond of and proud to call my home. Any boat-owner who wishes for a safe and secure environment should investigate the competitive berthing rates at Cesme Marina. It is of great benefit to take advantage of the Refer a Friend campaign too. I wish peaceful days everyone in this marina that we have considered our home for many years.
