In our winter newsletters, we like to re-acquaint our latest subscribers with who we are and what we do.
Dave Stanley is Australian, having moved to Turkey permanently 9 years ago pursuing his love of sailing and wooden boats. Dina Street is half Turkish, half American having relocated to Bodrum in 1990, with a background in IT from Silicon Valley and an entrepreneur whose creative ideas were often a decade too early. We are both permanent residents of Bodrum and own/operate three gulets (Southern Cross Timer, Why Not and Queen of Karia.) We are also an agency for a limited number of selected gulets in Bodrum, and custom bareboats.
Our Southern Cross Blue Cruising charter businesses are registered both in Australia and Turkey, and our boatyard business Bodrum Yacht Services oversees winterization, refits, painting and brokerage in Bodrum.
We are passionate about what we do, so do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or comments.
