Finally back in New Zealand after a most successful cruise aboard Catch Me . Certainly compared with our previous four Lagoon 41 charters she was by far the best boat that we have had and we have already thanked Can for this . We think he appreciated our various modifications and purchases to improve the boat for future charterers . We also wish to thank you for your excellent communications particularly when it was necessary with the anchor winch control problems. We would have no hesitation of recommending Boating Turkey as a thoroughly reliable Company to charter from.
Thank you again

Salute to Capitan Yavuz Kose and Cook Serkan Babayigit (nicknamed Captain Cook by our group).
Along with Boating Turkey they were responsible for one of the most enjoyable weeks we as a family with our in law children have had in our lives.
This was a dream come true to us as we have been dreaming about this cruise for 6 years as we did plan a similar trip 6 years ago, but had to abandon it as 2 of the couples pulled out. My first contact with Boating Turkey for this trip was already in May last year and I had a very responsive feedback from Necmi on every e-mail that I have sent to him. He was very helpful in assisting us in all the arrangements.
Due to a limited budget we chartered the smallest boat that we could get hold of, but we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the interior of the boat. The two smaller cabins were a bit uncomfortable but fine for the two younger couples in our group. We fortunately experienced excellent weather and could therefore spend all the time on the deck. Gathering as a family on the foredeck while cruising was a real family binding experience.
Our captain and chef were excellent hosts as they were always there but never intruding into our privacy despite the limited circulation space. Yavuz gave us a feeling of having everything under control at all times even during a very rough spot on the open sea when we were cruising against a very strong wind. Compliments to our wonderful chef Serkan who had the ability to prepare the most wonderful meals in his small kitchen. Lunch and dinner was always a pleasant surprise with the fresh fish speared by then at night something very special.
Even to us as South Africans with a very weak currency the trip was very affordable and goes highly recommended. It was an unforgettable week on the Turkish coast.

We rented 3 boats simultaneously (2 Lagoon 421 and 1 Oceanis 54) for 24 persons. The boats were in good shape, 1, 2 and 4 years old. The service from Boating Turkey staff during check-in and ceck-out was friendly and helpfull. The service of Boating Turkey / Necmi during the whole organization was perfect, efficient, friendly and the whole experience was so that we gladly would contact you the next time we'd like to rent a boat in Turkey.
Thank you very much for your mail of September 29. I planned to send you a mail as well to say how much we enjoyed our holidays. The boat was great, so was the wheather, but we especially really admired Marina and Simon, what a great couple and what great service they provided.
Thanks very much for booking this great ship and arranging all other facilities around our stay in Turkey.
