YYACHTS TURKEY: CARBON SAILING YACHTS BETWEEN SPEED AND LUXURY
In the important Turkish market, YYachts is represented by two very competent representatives. Ali Mütevelli, a graduate of the local Istanbul University, was practically born in a boat and then started sailing seriously on his father's ten-metre yacht. Later, he won numerous Turkish championships and represented the Turkish national team several times at European championships in the Optimist and Finn classes.
Still a very active sailor, he spends four months a year on board and on the water. He has been trading in boats and yachts since 2003.
Mütevelli's partner for YYachts is Ceyhun Zincirkiran. The MBA graduate from the American Marymount University started sailing at the tender age of five on a nine-metre wooden boat owned by his family. "Since then," says Zincirkian, "I've always been out on the ocean in various family boats or my own yachts." This grew into 58 years of sailing experience, including various regattas. Zincirkiran is also the chairman of the fourth largest European consumer goods manufacturing group in Istanbul.
