I would like to congratulate Necmi Artar and his company for the superb idea of collecting all the charter boats available in Turkey in one website. Efficiently designed website makes the searching process much faster and easier. Our correspondence with Necmi was always prompt and up to the point. During our sailing holiday in Turkey, everything went according to the plan without any glitches. Thank you very much Necmi.
We had a great moments, nice skipper, good boat and wonderful beaches, Thanks a lot for everything to make this holiday real..
David Bacellar and family.
We had excellent holidays with Boating Turkey and everything was above expectations. We where particulary happy with the boat where we felt like at home from the very begining. The capitan and the crew made everything possible for our confort and the route we did was really beautiful. We also enjoyed the home made turkish food that had excelent quality.
All together an amazing experience that we would like to repeat soon.
Thanks also for delivering my lost suitcase to the boat in Bodrum.
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!
