|Weekly rate from||€40,000|
Ecce Navigo is a beautifully appointed contemporary take on the traditional Turkish gulet.
A traditionally styled, 34-metre wooden sailing ketch, Ecce Navigo (Latin, ‘Here I sail’) has been thoroughly well engineered to offer luxurious accommodation both above and below decks together with superb performance, stability and comfort while underway.
Ecce Navigo is characterised by world-class facilities, service and cuisine, with specialized itineraries designed around the client, from cultural tours to water sports, hiking to holistic massages, swimming to yoga.
Her spacious interior has been handcrafted and finished in rich mahogany, resulting in living spaces that are both impressive yet intimate.
Three master cabins and two double cabins, each with its own en-suite bathroom and adjustable air-conditioning, provide spacious and inviting accommodation for up to ten guests.
Built and launched in 1997, Ecce Navigo was completely refitted in 2011 with the latest navigational technology and a sophisticated on-board entertainment system. The large saloon is superbly laid out with generous dining, bar and relaxation areas.
There are two main decks: the spacious aft deck has comfortable seating, a large dining table and a tail deck for sunbathing, while the forward deck area offers vast spaces in which to relax and a perfect table for cocktails and nibbles.
Ecce Navigo is based on Turkey’s dramatic Lycian Coast, sailing from her home port of Gocek.
