I was recently on board the Grand Mare with Michelle Neumann and my friends. We had an amazing adventure and I personally loved being on board every minute. The crew were friendly and respectful in every way. Having said that I would jump at the chance to get back on board and go sailing again. Hope this is of some help.
We spent a lot of time going through travel brochures and surfing the
internet in researching our Turkish boating holiday.
After lots of false starts with other boating brokers who did not respond
speedily or who only answered one or two of our questions, we found the
Boating Turkey website and never looked back. The site was very clearly
laid out with an extensive list of available boats along with quality
photos. Our questions around boats and suggested itineraries were responded
to quickly and effectively, and we always felt that we were getting
considered opinions and advice rather than rushed and incomplete responses.
The result: The boat and her crew were outstanding - a perfect match to our
requirements and exactly as promised by the staff who helped us at Boating
Turkey. Their staff could not have been more courteous and helpful, both in
the booking process, and helping with some extra supplies on the day of
departure and getting our family to the boat quickly and efficiently whilst
making sure everything was in order with the captain and boat before they
waved us off.
We recommend their services with confidence and pass on our thanks for
helping with a great holiday experience.

I booked a trip for a cabin charter that was going going from to Greek islands with Necmi from Boating Turkey. This was second time going on a gulet. First time it was wonderful, very well arranged. This time the cabin charter operatör cancelled the trip 2 days before departure due to a political problem with Greece but the cabin charter operator did not replace it with another boat similiar that I booked.
I communicated with Necmi about not being happy with it and he immediately (with an hour) arranged another beautiful boat (Sumru Sultan) for me. This boat was going out of Marmaris instead of Bodrum. But Necmi helped on this immediately and he arranged all the transfer for free of charge. The drivers were on time and very cordial. I had am amazing time on board and highly recommend Necmi as an agent.
Me and my family were going to take a Windstar cruise in early July this year. One of the ports of call was Bodrum. Reading about the place and its tourist attractions, we decided to rent a gullet for the day. I am sure now that our decision couldn't be better. It was a most relaxing trip, in a typical boat, huge and comfortable, swimming in clear waters with no hurry at all. The crew members were very kind and helpful, and they cook wonderful meals. Everything was really well organized. Since I had arranged the gullet rental through an Internet site, having paid for their services in advance, I knew I was taking my chances. Specially because we would just have some hours in Bodrum, and it would be hard to rearrange the rental on the spot. I had no need to worry, the boat was waiting for us, corresponding in every detail to what they proposed us in their e-mail. We will certainly use Boating Turkey services again if we are fortunate enough to visit this wonderful Turkish beach once more in the future.
