Captain Yusuf KALMAZ
Yusuf was born in Iskenderun, on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, and has been working in the maritime sector for close on 30 years, having been drawn to the sea from a very early age. Yusuf completed his high school studies at the Iskenderun Maritime Vocational College and took his first steps in establishing a career in the yachting industry while working as Able Seaman aboard cargo ships based in the Mediterranean. After three years, and many thousands of sea miles, Yusuf found a position aboard a Bodrum-based charter yacht, the ketchrigged gulet, “MELODI”, where he initially served as Able Seaman, gaining the experience necessary to ensure him a captain’s position on the same yacht in 1995. Follow- ing five busy summer seaons with MELODI, Yusuf, who was by now a licenced Yachtmaster, was offered a four-year captain’s position on the French- flagged, “LE PARADISO”, another sailing yacht. His next post was aboard the 26 metre motorsailing yacht, ‘LADY Q”, which was initially a private yacht, but was later offered for charter, giving Yusuf a chance to build on his English language skills. At the helm of “LADY Q”, Captain Yusuf sailed extensively throughout the Aegean and the Eastern Mediterranean for 11 years. When the yacht was sold, Captain Yusuf was delighted with the opportunity of joining the sailing yacht REGINA. After his experience on Regina, he now leads an excellent crew of six on GULMARIA. Yusuf has gained a great deal of experience over the many years of his employment in the yacht charter business. His broad knowledge of the local cruising areas, together with his pleasant personality make him very popular with his guests. His English is very good and he is more than happy to show guests around the Turkish coasts’ historical sites or partner them in a game of “backgammon”. During the wintertime, Yusuf, who is married with two children, loves to travel.
