This great site made the choice easy. I have received great professional follow up prior to the rental and the cruise was excellent. The boat was brand new and equipped with first class gear. The rental team was nice and provided excellent help when needed|
Great cruise, great experience. Serious business. Highly recommended.

Scott will unlikely have the time to respond so I though I would respond based on what he and my daughters said to me and my experience. I was so sorry not to go as it sounded like they had a great time and Turkey looks spectacularly beautiful. I am recovering well from the back surgery (but definitely would have preferred sailing!)
I appreciated all your help with the arrangements and your promptness on getting back to me with any questions.
They found the boat to be very clean, and with all the details as specified. The depth sounder did not work on the GPS console in the cockpit, and there were some issues with the alarm setting. ( The alarm went off on the depth at 10 meters....which meant the depth sounder was in a constant alarm state(noise!) while anchoring. ). The outboard motor stopped functioning day 4 or 5 ( bad gas?) .
Overall they were very satisfied and we would use your company again.

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!
Tinatin and Alexey
Thank you to BoatingTurkey.net and Necmi for creating an amazing trip for our group of 33. Necmi coordinated logistics for two gulets and a 50 foot monohull and truly jumped through hoops to deliver a high quality, fuss-free once-in-a-lifetime trip.
The gulets were beautiful, the crew was endearing and accommodating and the meals were sensational. To coordinate such a large group and have not have to worry about the logistics truly shows how well-connected and seasoned Necmi is. We enthusiastically recommend that anyone considering a trip along the Turkish coast check in with Necmi first. He's the most patient, responsive and trustworthy expert. As he walked down the dock, all the captains tipped their hats to him. We too tip our hat to him.
Thank you Necmi for everything!
