They're the playthings of billionaires, used by names like Bill Gates, Roman Abramovich, and the British Royal Family.
Now, the luxury yachts so beloved of rich listers are gaining recognition for the money they generate for the Turkish economy.
More than US$1.4bn has been generated in the last 20 years from Antalya's Free Zone, the world's third-largest hub for luxury yacht building after Italy and the Netherlands.
Last year, 30 yachts were launched, earning $125m in revenues. Since its inception, 510 super luxury vessels have been constructed by the 50 or so companies operating within the zone.
General manager of Antalya Free Zone Zeki Gurses said Turkish-built yachts have made their way all over the world.
The zone's reputation as a hub for maintenance has also grown, with 142 vessels brought in for maintenance, generating $49m, Gurses said.
While Istanbul's Tuzla district and Bodrum are other critical yacht building centres, the Antalya zone operates under special regulatory conditions aimed to promote exports of goods and services.
Situated within a secure compound, these luxury-built villas are nestled within a private area of Dosemealti in Antalya and have fantastic nature views from their own private gardens with spacious swimming pools outside.
This boutique hotel for sale consists of four standalone bungalows and is nestled within the peaceful area of Samanli in Yalova – each property has its own private swimming pool and landscaped garden outside.
Two minutes away from the beach and local amenities, these fully completed apartments are for sale within a residential area of Konyaalti in Antalya and have access to a swimming pool and other social facilities.
