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!

We were two groups of friends looking for 2 similar sailing boats for our one week trip in early July 2012. Boating Turkey offered us brand new Dufour 445 yachts at a good price, excellent guidance on possible routes and in general very helpful and timely advice. The whole trip was excellent, we enjoyed departing from Gocek and doing a round trip around Fethiye bay continuing all the way down to Kalekoy/Kekova. We will use Boating Turkey again, if planning a boating holiday in Turkey again. Thank you!
We were dellighted with the week sailing on this wonderful gulet. The staff , Saleh, Oechler and Willy were very helpful, friendly and professional. The boat was clean, the food turkish and good. Although it was already mid October we had most of the time wonderful weather. We did enjoy the week on the boat. Goekova bay is very beautiful. We might even return.
Fabulous trip. Gocek and the surrounding islands is a wonderful place to sail - spectacular scenery, great anchorages and restaurants, very friendly people.
The boat was in first rate condition and whole trip went without a hitch. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
Fethiye with its cultural wealth, natural beauties and geography, is among
the important tourism centres of Turkey. It is famous for its works of art
belong to Persians, Lycians, Carians and Romans. This charming county is in a
bay within Fethiye Gulf where both large and small islands are scattered. The
rear of the bay is surrounded by pine forests.
The ancient name of Fethiye, which was a coastal city at the
borders of Lycia-Caria, is Telmessos. There is not definite information about
the foundation of this Ancient city. According to the first written records, it
has come into existence in the 5th century B.C. Telmessos, separate from Lycia,
survived as an independent city for a long time. The city experienced the rule
of Persia, Alexander the Great, Rome, Pergamum Kingdom, Byzantium,
Menteşeoğulları Principality and Ottoman State respectively.
Mediterranean climate, which is hot and dry during summers
and warm and rainy during winters, is dominant in the region. Temperature, which
is approximately 30 degrees during summer months, is generally over 10 degrees
during winter. Sea water temperature never decreases under 16 degrees during
