M/S GETAWAY is a luxurious yacht available for charter in the Eastern Mediterranean and she certainly lives up to her name with her very comfortable cabins and vast number of amenities. Launched from Mural Shipyard - Istanbul in March 2009, this yacht is a strong contender to be the favorite of any discerned traveller who desires nothing but the best during their time at sea.
With a traditional hull shape and contemporary interior, she provides the ultimate comfort outdoors and indoors with her open spacious design and light coloured interiors. Unusual amongst many gullets is the level of attention that was paid to her sail performance.
Getaway's sail plan and deck layout were designed with a high level of cruising performance in mind whilst still ensuring this yacht is simple, safe and enjoyable to sail.

GETAWAY Crew Profile
CAPTAIN/ Adem Turk
Captain Adem started his yachting career in 1998 and has been working on charter yachts ever since. For the past nine years he was in command of Serenity 70 which he turned into one of the most successful charter vessels in Turkey before being promoted to Getaway in 2014 by the same owner. He knows the Southern coast of Turkey like the back of his hand and enjoys sharing this turquoise paradise with his guests. He is warm, funny and detailed in his work. With his knowledge and experience, Adem delivers a memorable and safe vacation to all his guests. He is married and has two beautiful daughters. Adem speaks Turkish, English and beginner German.
CHEF/ Kazim Ballikaya
Kazim is originally from Sivas, a region close to the Black Sea coast of Turkey. He is an accomplished chef with a natural flair in the galley and a passion for healthy Mediterranean meals. He works on charter yachts in the summer and continues his duties in the kitchen as the private chef of a prominent Turkish family for the past several years. He has been aboard Getaway since 2014 and his mouth-watering and artful represented meals became a crucial part of all our guests’ experience. Kazim enjoys reading books and collecting new recipes while travelling the Mediterranean world. Kazim speaks Turkish.
STEWARD/ Mucahit Budak
Mucahit is from the coastal town of Fethiye. He joined the yachting industry in 2005 and is now the steward aboard Getaway, making sure that all guests are getting spoiled. Captain Adem particularly selected Mucahit to be a part of his team, having followed his service record aboard other charter vessels in the past several years. What makes Mucahit ideal for this position is not just his experience but his character. His positive and caring personality is reflected deeply in his work. It is simply refreshing to be in his presence any time of the day. Mucahit speaks Turkish and English.
DECKHAND/ Ramazan Turk
Ramazan is our youngest crew member and is from the small Mediterranean village of Ekincik. He started his career as a captain’s assistant in river boats along the Dalyan River before he moved on to luxury charter vessels as a deckhand in 2012. He was promoted to Getaway in 2015 where he will be in charge of all deck duties. His hobbies include swimming and fishing. Ramazan speaks Turkish and intermediate level English.
HOUSEKEEPING/ Melek Ascioglu
Melek was born and raised in the Philippines and moved to Turkey after marrying her Turkish husband in 2013. She has been in the hospitality sector for several years during which period she gained experience as a hostess in restaurants and housekeeper in hotels. She started working on charter yachts in Turkey in 2014 during which period she served aboard Getaway as a temp. Having received excellent feedback from guests for her work and her character, she was asked to become a permanent member in 2015. Melek is charming, always smiling, and very keen on providing an excellent service. Melek speaks Turkish, English and Filipino.
ENGINEER/ Ozkan Kocaturk
Ozkan is a very interesting member of our crew. He lived in Germany for 35 years managing clothing stores for the major part of his business career and he even started a number of his very own stores towards the latter part of his stay in Germany. It was simply his passion for the sea and his mechanical hobbies which led him to return to Turkey and settle down in the harbour town of Gocek and start working on yachts as an engineer. Ozkan is fluent in Turkish, English and German.
