I have had the intention to write this message when we are back to Norway. I had no clue about Turkish Gulets before, but after spending a week on a “Deluxe Class Gulet” in ultimate comfort, now I believe she highly deserves this classification. Many thanks to BoatingTurkey Team and the spectacular crew members on board who made our vacation memorable, stress free experience with full of generosity and friendship. Furthermore the itinerary was well thought of and the sightseeing was very impressive. Special thanks to Captain Mustafa for his kind hospitality and to invite all of us at the end of the charter to his home in the lovely village called “cilek” which means ‘strawberry’ in English.

Dear Mr. Artar,
I can confirm my crew and I had a very pleasant week on the 2BISI.
The boat was in perfect shape and everything was nice and clean. The people at the marina were extremely friendly and helpfull. I will certainly recommend your company Boating Turkey to my sailing friends.

When you make an online booking with Boating Turkey you are ensuring more than a top class holiday, you are establishing contact with Necmi Artar.
So what, you might think!!
Well, not only will Necmi look after your Gulet cruising requirements, he can sort out many more of the associated things that are essential to your break, such as transfers from & to the Airport, hotel accommodations, excursions while you are shore-based, transfers from the hotel to the Bodrum marina and back again on completion of your cruise. On our behalf he even checked availability and booked us into the hotel we had found on the internet and specifically wanted to stay at!!
With service like this, it will come as no surprise to learn that the Gulet cruise through the Gulf of Gokova was brilliant. The service was great – Captain and 2 crew to look after just 9 of us – fresh food every day, plenty of cold drinks and beautiful scenery and swimming opportunities.
I can thoroughly recommend this holiday for total relaxation and enjoyment and cannot thank Necmi enough for ensuring that all worked out perfectly
Necmi, I can’t 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 couldn’t 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,
