We had a absolute ball! We are 9 middle age friends who hired a self catering Gulet, not quite knowing what to expect! We didn't want to eat on board every night, but wanted to go ashore to socialise! Wow - Zigi ( our gracious Captain ), Ersan ( 2nd mate and a superb waiter) and Josef ( an amazing Chef, whose food surpassed any eaten ashore!), made our time on board, better than anything we could have expected! Never belly laughed so much in years, we all returned back to work horizontal! Thank you so very, very, much!
Thanks, Necmi for your patience and help,
Michael and friends!
Sayin Necmi Bey,
12 - 19 Haziran 2010 haftasi acentaniz araciligiyla Bodrum Yalikavak Marina'dan Dufour 385 Grand Large modeli bir tekne kiralayarak Gokova korfezinde yelken yaptim. oncelikle teknenin her açidan tam teçhizatli olmasi ve hemen hemen her turlu donaniminin eksiksiz çalistigini gormek bizi çok mutlu etti.
Verilen bilgiler ve saglanan destekler de çok kiymetli idi. Tekne gayet iyi temizlenmis ve hazirlanmis idi. Ilk rezervasyon anindan son tekneyi teslim etme anina kadar yardimci olmaniz da takdire sayandir. Butun yelkenci arkadaslara sizlerle çalismalarini içtenlikle tavsiye ederim.
Devamli bir musteri kazandiginizi belirtmek isterim.
Ilginiz için tesekkurlerimi sunarim. Bir sonraki rezervasyonda gorusmek dilegiyle !!

Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation cruising the Gulf of Gokova. The gulet was extremely comfortable, the crew friendly, and the food exceptional! We had loads of fun swimming, snorkeling, and playing backgammon and Okey with captain and crew. Your company is very professional and provides excellent value. We will recommend you to our friends and family and will be sure to contact you when we return to 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!
