The rich and long story of HALAS 71
The yacht was built in 1914 by the British for the Ottoman Empire, however, the ship never made it to the empire because of the World War I. Instead, the British government used the ship named Waterwich at that time in Gallipoli.
Only in 1923, she became a truly Turkish boat after being used by the British Allied Headquarters. The same year the ship was named HALAS. For the next 65 years, it served as a passenger ferry on the Bosphorus carrying thousands of passengers daily.
In 1984 the famous Turkish publisher Haldun and Cigdem Simavi gave to the yacht a second life by purchasing it and transferring it into a 15-cabin luxury cruiser. The ship was literally rescued from the wreckers yard. HALAS became a top private luxury yacht in Istanbul.
In 2008 the cruiser got new owners. Famous Turkish Koc family, Mustafa and Caroline, purchased the yacht and put her through a major refit. In two year HALAS was transferred into a more luxurious yacht with 12 cabins that can be chartered for special events and luxury yachting holidays in Istanbul and Turkey.
