About us

Sailing Chef has its roots in The Netherlands, Turkey and Ireland. We provide magical boutique sailing cruises in the most stunning region, with love for you and an eye for detail.


Become an insider


​Our Chef, captain, and crew were born and raised on the Datça peninsula. They have been a successful team for over a decade that takes care of you as their family. The rest of us fell in love with the scenery, population, and Blue Voyage experience. Together we decided to establish Sailing Chef. Our goal is to provide you with insider access and take traditional blue Cruising to the next level. We do this with thought, surprise and charm, presenting you the VIP feeling.

From good to great


Traditional Blue Cruising is a wonderful experience. At the same time, we felt something was missing. To create your lifelong memory with a desire to return, in our eyes good had to become great.

We took a close look at each essential element of the blue cruise experience. We challenge ourselves to reinvent each piece without losing the casual atmosphere of your experience.

The five Blue Cruise Life essentials

Owning our gulets with a well-oiled team that has sailed together for over a decade is the foundation that ensures the highest quality.

Building on this foundation, we strive to continuously reinvent the five essentials of The Blue Cruise Life for you:

  1. Genuine hospitality leaving you feel like a VIP

  2. Magic cuisine from the freshest ingredients cooked to perfection

  3. The insider track to breathtaking scenery and hidden bays

  4. Unwind with the sensation of limitless freedom

  5. Adventure for all ages and unlimited water fun

​Leaving you with a Lifelong Memory and a desire to return.
