We Hosted An Uncategorized Beauty: Kate MOSS…

The Vogue US Magazine covered Istanbul in 12 pages under the "Silk Road" title on December 2103 issue. The Armada Boat was preferred for the intercity transport and excursions of Kate Moss and the team during the photographing works

The world renowned British model Kate Moss and award winning actor Chiwetel Ejiofor appeared as the duo explore the vibrant hotspots dotted around Istanbul in Vogue US's December 2013 issue. During three days of capturing that lay emphasis on Istanbul's cultural richnesses in September 2013in order to gain time within Istanbul heavy traffic, Kate Moss and her team preferred the Armada Boat for transportation and their excursions. Kate Moss, the team, the world renowned photographer, Mario Testino also sailed to the Bosphorus for two consecutive dinners by Armada Boat too.

September 22, was the day for capturing Istanbul from the sea through the Armada Boat. To show the Historical Peninsula was important here not only for the Vogue but also for us too. Nevertheless, one of the shots was chosen as the first picture and published under the title "Sail Into Sunset" (see the one on the right upper corner above).  Kate Moss and the team most enjoyed the 5 o'clock tea and the flourless chocolate cake those were prepared by the Armada Hotel kitchen. On the evening, for an "after-party" held in a historical house in Kandilli, the Armada Boat took the same group to the Bosphorus again. On the way back, our Boat hosted the last celebration of this tremendous Istanbul project by popping up champagne!

The Armada Boat in TURSAB Magazine

TÜRSAB -The Association of Turkish Travel Agencies covered our Boat's story with a four pages of news in the July 2013 issue of its monthly magazine. The article widely mentioned the culture of Bosphorus in the history and to some extent, the cultural complexity of today's Istanbul. This approach helps to have a better idea about the cultural identity of our boat...

We proudly present "The Armada Boat"!

A "commuter" type, classic boat called "Armada 1" has been sailing in the Bosphorus and Golden Horn also around the Prince Islands by attracting great appreciation as of July 2012. Here is one of the feedbacks:
"...The Bosporus really is this city’s spiritual life source. It never gets tiring being on the sea, whatever type of vessel you’re on. However, I have to say, this particular one was the finest I’ve had the pleasure of being aboard, incredibly comfortable, and tastefully appointed. It had all the old school charm in its design that I’d want if I was fortunate enough to be able to afford such a craft. Despite being perfectly happy aboard a vapur on the Bosporus you can imagine how nice it felt to be at the other end of the spectrum..." - Innes Adam Welbourne 
When you make your travel program to Istanbul, please keep in mind that there is a very special, private excursion boat will be at your service during your stay...
