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!

Thank you for two wonderful weeks in Turkey. We were sailing a 38 foot Lagoon catamaran along your coast and thanks to your route tips we had a fine mix of different destinations.
The global balance is a 8,5 so our satisfaction has been bery high!!! We have got very good food, nice atmosphere with the tripulation, ...
Just 2 points for improving and reaching a 10: the boat cleanness (and maintenance in general -considering that the boad was only 2 years old-) could be better, and the uniformity of the tripulation could be better as well (usually dressed with swiming dress and without t-shirt).
I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip (May 28 to June 4, 2011) on the Blue Capricorn. The crew of 5 was excellent. Maseih Balci, the captain was great. He was very helpful with all our on the boat and on shore needs and arranged transportation to visit some of the ancient sites. The chef, Muret Sener made the most delicious meals. They were so good that we decided to have all our meals on the boat. In this way, we didnt have to make any meal decisions, leaving all the choices to him, which we all enjoyed.
The arrangements made by Boating Turkey were wonderful. Everything went according to plan and I have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone. Thanks for all the arrangements.
