Thanks once again for all of your help. We had a fabulous trip. Everything was very smooth, including all of the transfers, beverage stocking, and Dalyan river tour (Suleyman Toker, the guide, was very excellent). Captain Cevat and the crew were all excellent as well as you had mentioned, Hassan, the cook, was fantastic.
Dear Mr. Artar,
You get this answer from very satisfied clients. We really enjoyed our holidays. All the people we have met were friendly and helpful. The area around Göcek is particular beautiful. The weather has been as in the catalogues. Sailing in the smooth spring time winds on a well equiped boat was so easy.
And you did a big deal to our satisfaction! Already during our e-mail-contact you built up a warm and friendly atmosphere. We have always felt being well informed. Whatever you told us, it has been correct. There have never been any problems, in contacting, booking, changing, paying, in- or outchecking. Again we thank you a lot for the free ride to Antalya - more than 200 kms! - in a quite new and comfortable car with a wide luggage boot and big windows to be fed up with a marvellous landscape. It was a fortune to change the harbour because we like the small city of Göcek. Mr. Turgut is a smooth and gentle man, he did everything to comfort us. He has always been reachable if we tried to contact him. And we were lucky to get a bigger boat, so we took profit from a lot of space. The Hey Joe is a boat without useless things but good sailing equipment. Roll-Fock and Roll-Groß make sailing easy, especially the autopilot because we always had a quite sea. As we had absolute good weather conditions we need not bring us or the boat to the limit. Though we think she would work greatly. The plotter and the gps might be helpful things then - we only used them to control what we could see by eye. The good cards and the detailed book about harbours and bays were best helpers to find a jolly good place in a bay for the night. However, we intensively used the platform for bathing and the dinghy for short trips. We loved to have good kitchen facilities to prepare the delightful Turkish fish and vegetables. A shower in the lighted and big dimensioned bathroom was always an enliven action. We never felt cold in the bed-linen.
Best wishes for a good season

I have had the intention to write this message when we are back to Norway. I had no clue about Turkish Gulets before, but after spending a week on a “Deluxe Class Gulet” in ultimate comfort, now I believe she highly deserves this classification. Many thanks to BoatingTurkey Team and the spectacular crew members on board who made our vacation memorable, stress free experience with full of generosity and friendship. Furthermore the itinerary was well thought of and the sightseeing was very impressive. Special thanks to Captain Mustafa for his kind hospitality and to invite all of us at the end of the charter to his home in the lovely village called “cilek” which means ‘strawberry’ in English.
