Kuşadası Marina

Kuşadası Marina can be found to the right of the sweeping bay, it is one of 9 marinas in Turkey belonging to the Setur Marina Group.  It has a mooring capacity of 450 boats, each of which can be to a maximum of 90 meters long, with a maximum depth of 5 meters.  There is also the capacity to hold 150 boats on land.

It is a popular marina and sheltered in winter, so there are always plenty of boats to be seen.  This photo was taken from the garden area on the roof of the Marina Shopping Centre.

Spot the masts, 'How may can you count?'.

There's something about white boats and masts against a clear blue sky!

'Mind the gap!'

I took this photo showing the main road within the Marina, just to give you some idea of how vast an area it covers.

As I had mentioned at the start of this article, the Marina houses several boats on dry dock, where they are in various states of repair, these always make for interesting photos.

This is one of the many day trip boats having a spruce up before the start of the season.

I had first took these first two photos back in January, it is now June and the boat is still being worked on.

The original day trip boat must now be sailing the seas, as it has been replaced by another one in need of some tlc.  'One day when I grow up I hope to look sleek, white and new, just like you!'

Even the junior sailing club boats are having a spruce up for the season, its a dusty business.

The Marina is also the home of Kuşadası's coast guard vessel.
