Hello.... I am an Engineer, sailing since the year 2000 and owner a boat since 2008, sailing around the Med. & Aegean Sea in Turkish and Greek Waters. It has been now almost 20 years that sailing has taken an important role in my life. I like to be on board & to go with the wind everywhere. My home and business is in Istanbul, but my is in Kas Marina, at south of Turkey. She is a new generation Dufour 430 with the name S/Y Syreni. Syreni will stay at Kas Marina for another year and I will generally sail in that area until end of the year 2020. Because that area is suitable for sailing even in winter. Just for pleasures of sailing and enjoying the remote anchorages, discover the islands in a relaxed atmosphere.... So what is expected is sharing an adventure may make it more valuable. Have a positive attitude, having a happy nature, no drugs or smoking. I don’t mind the nationality or religious etc..
