Built in Scotland in 1914 M/Y Halas was promptly requisitioned by the British goverment for the war effort and only arrived in Turkish waters in 1918. Five more years passed before the Allied Headquarters handed it over to its Turkish owners who employed it as a passenger ferry on the Bosphorous for the next 65 years. Bought in 1985 by its present owners, the wessel was totally refurbished over a period of four years and converted into a luxurious floating palace.
Anchored on the Bosphorous at Istinye, Istanbul, during the winter months, this elegant vessel is where you would want to welcome your friends for a truly exclusive reception or dinner party. Her state-of-the-art facilities make her also the ideal settings for business meetings to be held in absolute privacy.
Dinners and Receptions
M/Y Halas can seat up to 60 guests for the most select of dinner parties. Her three kitchens provide exquisite food made from the freshest local produce.
During the summer season, Halas is available for cruising along the beautiful historic South West Coast of Turkey, clear waters, ancient relics, and the luxury service of a 5 star summer cruise.
