I would like to congratulate Necmi Artar and his company for the superb idea of collecting all the charter boats available in Turkey in one website. Efficiently designed website makes the searching process much faster and easier. Our correspondence with Necmi was always prompt and up to the point. During our sailing holiday in Turkey, everything went according to the plan without any glitches. Thank you very much Necmi.
Necmi, I cant thank you enough for all the time and effort you spent making our sailing holiday unforgettable. I had a million questions about sailing in Turkey and sent you numerous emails. You always responding back to each and every email right away and provided clear instructions, information and details. In addition, I spent some time researching other brokers and charter companies operating in Turkey and your rates were by far the most competitive. Our trip turned out perfect in every way. Our airport transfers, pre & post hotel recommendations were brilliant! The sailboat was beautiful and well equipped and we appreciated your sailing route recommendations. Sailing in Turkey is so easy compared to the San Francisco Bay were we are from. If was such a pleasant and relaxing experience. Fantastic seaside restaurants you can eat at every night only accessible by boat. All the markets catering to the sailing community made shopping for supplies a piece of cake they all deliver right to the boat! Best of all was the natural beauty of the Turkish cost. This is unlike any place in the world. Our vacation exceeded all our expectations and we already decided we will be back next summer. We couldnt have done this without you and your help. Thanks again for being part of this amazing experience we will be in touch when we start to book our 2014 vacation!
All the best,
Mavi yolculuğumuzdan çok memnun kaldık. Yemeklerden lezzetli ve çeşitliydi. Tekne çok güzel ve temizdi. Gezdiğimiz koylar temiz, sakin ve bize ait gibiydi. Kaptanın her yeri karış karış biliyor olması gideceğimiz koylarda hayal kırıklığına uğramayacağımızın garantisiydi. Uyumlu ve güleryüzlü ekipten yolculuk boyunca memnunduk ve sorun yaşamadık. Popüler mavi tur rotaları haricinde berrak denizde yüzmek ve sakin koylarda geceleyip sessizliği dinleyerek yıldızları izlemek isteyenler Bozburun rotasını tercih etmeliler. Dimitri, Hurmalı, Serçe, Bozukkale ve Kadırga koyları harikaydı. Sığ limanda denize girmeyi unutmayın.
Teşekkürler Boating Turkey
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey and Necmi in particular!
It happens very rarely when I'm completely satisfied with the services offered, but this was the case.
In the beginning of may 2008 I was getting completely annoyed with constant delays and misinformation after numerous attempts to charter a catamaran via Russian or Greek companies. It was then I found Boating Turkey website, which straight away proved to be well laid-out and informative. So I sent a request for a catamaran charter and expected to wait another week or two for a reply, the usual time for the other companies. Imagine my surprise when 3 hours later I got my reply! One week later our holiday was fully booked and paid for.
I was very pleased with this punctuality and thoughtfulness. I felt like I was talking to a friend rather than a company that's trying to sell me something. Another advantage of Boating Turkey was a very detailed contract, with no hidden costs, everything laid out clearly (apparently this happens very rarely).
Our first charter with Boating Turkey was on board Lavezzi 40 catamaran, my husband and I, accompanied by a Turkish skipper Umit. Turkey, weather, wind - everything was great. Umit showed us a lot of beautiful little places which we would have never found ourselves.
Our next charter was with a larger crew of 6 people, with a skipper named Hans. This trip was even better than the 1st, it was a perfect mix of active sailing, chilling in the little deserted bays, practicing various maneuvers on a catamaran, and discovering places of cultural interest. Hans impressed us with his complete knowledge of sailing and Turkey in particular, as well as his great sense of humor.
About us: we are a married couple in our early fifties, my husband got his RYA Dayskipper qualification last year, I completed a RYA Competent Crew course. We decided to charter a few boats first with the skipper to feel completely confident when we charter the boat for ourselves.
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey, and Necmi, Umit and Hans in particular for a great time we've spent this summer! We hope to work with Boating Turkey again in the future!
Tinatin and Alexey
