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.

We booked with Boating Turkey only two weeks before we were due to leave at the busiest time of the season. We were struggling to find any other company that could find a boat that met our needs and Boating Turkey found us two boats that were exactly what we were looking for. The descriptions on the web site exactly met the boats we got and it was great to be able to get an exact description of the yachts. They were happy to make all the arrangements including transfers. The agents they dealt with were all really helpful and we felt looked after from the moment we landed until the moment we left.
Dear Necmi, Dear Necmi
“From the moment we made our first tentative enquiry until we arrived back at the airport at the end of our vacation we could not have wished to have received a better level of service than that provided by Boating Turkey. The booking and pre-trip procedures were made very straightforward for us, leading us to arrive at Dalaman airport with great confidence. Our gulet, Dea Delmare was simply stunning and we had a crew that were attentive whenever we needed anything and invisible when we were enjoying our charter. The food provided was unbelievably good, none of us could believe the quantity and variety of dishes that kept appearing from such a small place. The weather was fantastic and, set against such a beautiful backdrop, combined to create a memorable holiday. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with our children and their partners and the crew threw a surprise party for us which, amazingly, included tendering in to our “private” bay a DJ with all of his equipment. If anybody is looking for that really special vacation, look no further than a call to Necmi at Boating Turkey.”
I would certainly use Boating Turkey again and have already recommended you to a number of people.
Many thanks once again
We did have a very succesfull sailing. The boat was new and clean. There was also plenty of room to four families. Handlin of the boat was easy and pentry was big enough. We sailed to the sunken city and visited many interesting places. Weather was good with two thunder storms in the night. As a total we were very satisfied with sailing in Turkey and some day many of us will come again to you. Hartman Kaarlo Finland kaarlohartman[at]netscape.net
