What our clients say!
We initially found the Boating Turkey website just by trawling the internet but once Necmi has responded to our first enquiry, we never looked any further. He was so helpful in helping us choose a route, answering all our questions and providing advice. In fact, he gave us travel tips for Istanbul and arranged many of our transfers and recommended hotels etc. Pretty much whatever we asked for - a great add-on service. There were four couples on our Gulet (Albatross A) together with three crew members. Our cruise departed from Fethiye and ended at Marmaris. We pretty much left everything to the crew on the basis that they had done it a few times and would know what worked. We were not disappointed and had a wonderful holiday. The crew were very good at keeping a low profile on board but at the same time maintained excellent levels of service. The food is legendary and we looked forward to every meal - full board is a must. I would have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone.
Having just returned from a week on Sun-World IX we have to say it was one of the best sailing trips we have ever had. The company “Boating Turkey” were wonderful to deal with from the very first email from Necmi. The “4 star” boat was very comfortable, well maintained and the captain and crew were excellent and waited on us hand and foot. The weather was excellent, sun shining every day and we visited some lovely bays and most of us swam every day. The water was crystal clear in most bays and although a little on the chilly side some days as it is tends to be in the Mediterranean, it was great to warm up in the sun then jump in to cool off. The chef was excellent and most of the food was typical Turkish style, made with very fresh ingredients and very tasty. The crew made a big effort to please everyone which is quite a feat in a party of 19 and also adapted meals to meet the special dietary requirements of some of our group. Although the group was large the boat was even larger and there was a cabin with ensuite for every 2 or 3 people and of course there was huge amounts of deck space to sunbathe, read or just lounge around. Some nights were warm and some people slept on the many cushions and sun beds up on deck but others found it was cool enough to sleep in their cabins with or without the air-conditioning working which was only when the generator was on. Having sailed at various places around the world on both bareboat and crewed charters over the last 32 years, we feel well qualified to say that this was a wonderful experience and we would love to sail with Boating Turkey again.
We had a wonderful week of sailing in Turkey and the boat and crew far exceeded our expectations. The planning process through Boating Turkey was very smooth and everything turned out to be exactly as promised. The chef on board cooked three fantastic meals a day and everyone from 12 to 55 years of age had a great vacation. The captain was very knowledgeable about the waters around Bodrum and we will definitively consider coming back for more

We had a great time on our bareboat charter from Gocek in May 2014 aboard ‘Kiwi’ (Sun Odyssey 42) . From start to finish the charter was perfect – the arrangements made by Boating Turkey were precise and seamless, booking communications quick and simple, airport transfer smooth, charter base operator highly professional, helpful and thorough, and the boat was very well prepared and excellent value for money. I would certainly rate my satisfaction with both Boating Turkey as 100%, and look forward to chartering with you again next year.
