About Us

Aura Yachting Ltd is a well-established British-run sailing charter and yacht management company in Bodrum, Turkey. Our base has an exclusive position as the only yacht agency in Palmarina, Yalikavak, with a fleet of 20 charter boats, and a further 22 luxury yachts in our yacht maintenance care.

Aura was founded by Merina and Simon Phillips, who live permanently in Turkey. Merina heads the marketing and administration side of Aura Yachting, while Simon manages the technical and brokerage operations. We also have a services department that grows in the busy months when we bring in extra technicians and skippers. Our founders, office staff and team of pro technicians are all on site all the time.

We value direct communication with our clients and a hands-on approach to our work; those of us you meet at the boat shows internationally, speak to on the phone, or email, are the ones who will greet you when you arrive at our base. The boats we charter to you, we sail ourselves on the very same waters.

Our Mission

We enjoy the international, sea-loving community and the story-telling aspect of boat and marina life. Aura’s team are sailors and adventurers themselves and in turn, operate Aura Yachting to support their client’s adventures.

Between them, Merina and Simon have a wealth of experience in all fields of the yachting and charter industry, as well as water sports and the VIP sector of the business. They saw that the market needed a professional, knowledgeable, consistent yacht charter company with integrity, which also provided maintenance and high quality technical services. So in 2002, they started up themselves with just one yacht, a beautiful Beneteau 411, the emphasis on an eye for detail, and the mission to provide a friendly, efficient service.

The natural growth of Aura brought about the company’s Sales & Brokerage department, which is now an integral part of projects.

From the outset, Aura Yachting have been working to establish new standards in the quality of customer service and yacht maintenance, and aim to offer a new concept in yacht ownership, management and charter to sailors and boat owners.
