What our clients say!
Dear Necmi, Rusen and Boating Turkey
We would like to thank you for the most amazing week on board the Jasmin 1.
We had the most wonderful relaxed and stress free family holiday ever.
The sea was warm and so beautiful and we spend many happy hours swimming and
The boat was beautiful and the crew was so accommodating and friendly,
always striving to make us happy. Our captain always docked in the best
spots in the most beautiful little bays and our chef put together some
wonderful meals, including some lovely desserts. We were even spoilt with
baked cake with afternoon tea. Our captain did the barbecuing or braaing as
we know it in South Africa. He was an absolute champ at cooking on the open
fire on the deck. Burak, the third crew member assisted in all areas. He
was an absolute character and kept my family entertained. His new name

holiday that my family will remember with very special memories for a very

coast on the boat. Bodrum was absolutely charming and our second visit to
Istanbul was as amazing as our first. The people of Turkey are kind,
giving, friendly and honourable. My family will definitely return to

Thank you for your help in finding us the gulet Remo in Göceck. We had a wonderful time with our two grand children. The owner and his two sons were very friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was amazing, the elder son is a great cook! They did everything to make our trip pleasant and were very patient with the two boys who were very lively (!) and not easy with their food.
If I had one regret it was that I am used to eating a lot of fruit and there was hardly ever any. Maybe I should have asked? My fault I guess. Also, it would be more convenient for those passengers who stay in a hotel before their cruise to be picked up and brought directly to the boat.,we/our taxi did not know where to go to find the boat and expected us to walk around the port carrying our heavy luggage in search of the gulet. Luckily the captain's son came to help us after a while! Would definetely book with you again, it was an ideal holiday with children, also thank you for recommending Efe Hotel in Göceck it was ideal with small children: well located and the pool was most appreciated(they never wanted to get out!).
Your Dalaman pick-up and drop off was ready to go and Gocek was a nice little town with easy shopping and free delivery, we stayed the previous night at Gorkem Apartments which were absolutely superb with a fabulous breakfast. It was easy to both depart from and return to the marina, we sailed to the East and made a number of stops including stern tie-ups and swing anchor and mooring evenings. 14 days is essential if you want to relax and spend a couple of nights in the towns like Kalkan and Kas where we found loads of good restaurants esp Zula and Ottoman in Kalkan.
As for the sailing we all had a great time with Beaufort 2-7, the hand over was very simple and thorough, the staff were very helpful and the yacht was ready to go several hours earlier than the 16.00 hrs so we sailed out that afternoon and had our first meal at a 'jetty restaurant' a couple of hours away.
The Turkish marine regulations for sanitation and mooring in many of the bays mean beautiful clean water to swim in straight off the boat morning noon and night. The neighbouring yacht at one place told us this was, (along with New Zealand) the best place to sail. As to yourself, you answered every email quickly, sorted out any problem that arose, and when we had a gear breakage it was fixed as quickly as possible. Many thanks and we hope to come again but it is a long journey from N.Z
