This was the first time we had chartered in Turkey. A friend had referred us to Boating Turkey. The experience exceeded our expectations. Transfers went smoothly, the boat was beautiful, well prepared and ready, the staff were patient and welcoming. Our dealings had a sense of transparency and honesty. And, of course, the Med was stunning. I have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey and SK Yachting in particular.
Our charter from was 24/5 until 7/6 2014 from Marmaris for two weeks. We were group of ten, from Australia and New Zealand. I started to communicate with Necmi from Boating Turkey some months before the charter and found him to be most helpful from the start. Organising a trip like this for a group is disconcerting to say the least but Necmi helped to make it much easier by responding immediately to any questions I had. His helpful suggestions including wonderful Turkish wines were most welcome.
Our charter was onboard the “Azra Deniz” a 26 meter gulet complete with a crew of 3. She was not a five star but very comfortable in every way. The crew were sensational, the skipper, the chef and our ever smiling deckhand were always helpful and our itinerary included some of the wonderful villages, coves and historic sites of Turquoise Coast. We also has a visit to Simi in Greece which we all enjoyed. The weather was very kind to us, so there was plenty of swimming, canoeing and sunbathing, lots of time for relaxation as well. Each night we would decide on where we would go the next day and what we would do but most of the time we followed our skipper’s suggestions, he really ensured we has quite diverse experiences both in scenery and activities.
Our chef constantly prepared the most amazing meals, to good in fact as the waistlines slowly expanded! We were just amazed at his skills.
Our group had the most wonderful holiday, our crew certainly made a major contribution to this. The coast of Turkey is exquisite and its people are so warm and friendly and the food and wine superb.
Necmi came to meet us when we arrived on the boat in Marmaris and we appreciated that he did. He drove down from Bodrum. He really knows his bussiness and that is so important when you are organising travel plans from so far away.
Thank you so much for your help Necmi.
We all had an amazing time one one will remember for a long time to come.

Thank you so much for our trip! We had a great time. Our crew were lovely and perfect for our family holiday!
We will pass on your details to eager friends in Australia.
Hopefully we will be in touch in the near future for another trip.
We are 3 couples in our 60´s..We already had some sailing experience at the Mediterranean Sea and we planned during a whole year, a new trip , visiting new places and sailing other seas.
We had not to many information and tips for sailing the Turkish South Coast but we knew, through friends comments, is a great place.
Looking to rent a boat, I contact some brokers. After compare their offers and the way they attend our requirements, we decided to deal Boating Turkey...
Necmi tried hard to find the proper boat at a nice locations to serve our one way one week sailing plan. Great choice!! We received a very fine boat, brand new, a lot of recommendation to have a relaxed and interested sail experience and even very friendly help with the luggage we were carrying and were no useful on board.
The skipper, was very professional and very kind person.
We really enjoyed our trip.
