Good weather and perfect wind every day.
The organisation has been perfect:
- Clean Boats and in perfect maintenance condition.
- Very kind personal
- Easy and fast check-in and check-out.
Couldn' t ask for more.. :-)
Everything went very well. The yacht Dufour 385 was in a good condition and, as I discovered, very easy to steer, also when pushing back. Gocek is always a good place to start, with a lot of restaurants in small bays nearby. Fethye is only a few hours sailing away. The one-way charter is not a bad choice, because the relatively long way from Fethye/Gocek gulf to Marmaris with less places convenient to stop has to be taken into account only once. That offers the chance to visit more places, drop the anchor in more bays, than in case one has to think about returning to the marina of origin in time.
All in all, we enjoyed the trip very much and unexpectedly, it was as warm in September as it was end of July.
This year I don't think I have a chance to sail once more, but next year at the earliest convenience, when weather condition are preferable I will

Finally back in New Zealand after a most successful cruise aboard Catch Me . Certainly compared with our previous four Lagoon 41 charters she was by far the best boat that we have had and we have already thanked Can for this . We think he appreciated our various modifications and purchases to improve the boat for future charterers . We also wish to thank you for your excellent communications particularly when it was necessary with the anchor winch control problems. We would have no hesitation of recommending Boating Turkey as a thoroughly reliable Company to charter from.
Thank you again

Thank you very much for arranging our Turkish Gulet holiday in July, 2009. This was our second boating holiday with Boating Turkey, and we absolutely loved it! We chartered the Miriam Sophie, a 28 metre luxury gulet with two other families, and cruised from Marmaris, through Turkey, to Symi and Rhodes. Our captain and his family, who were the crew, were very amenable, and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic. The food was superb, you really wonder how they can whip up such great dishes on a boat! The coves and islands we visited were all gorgeous, and the highlight I think was our 3 nights in Symi, the harbour was just gorgeous, with Italian colonial architecture and brilliant cafes, then the following 2 nights were spent in little coves with the most magnificent blue water to swim in. The captain also took us to his home port in Turkey, Green Village, which was delightful.
The itinerary was very flexible, and crew happy to accommodate our choices. The boat was immaculately maintained, the cabins were large and roomy, the bathrooms were spacious and had a proper shower and toilet. There was loads of deck space both up front with sunbeds for all, and at the rear, which was enormous. We loved to sleep on deck, falling asleep with the stars at night. The captain was very skilled, we were amazed how he could manoevre such a large boat into tight spaces.
All in all, we had a brilliant experience. The booking and organization process was extremely simple, easy and smooth, and Necmi was very patient with us as we changed plans several times during the booking and departure period. The drinks etc were all pre-ordered via the net.
If you want a truly relaxing holiday, the sun and breeze in your face and not a care in the world, you can't beat this. No TV (they did actually have TV but we didn't tell the kids that) no phones, no worries.....
