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 skippers 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.

I recommend www.boatingturkey.net for the corretness : Too bad we could not start due to a family matter. I wrote to Boating Turkey in pointing out the problem and today I received back the advance money. thanks, though we did not have insurance, we did not lose almost nothing! Next time we will do it again with Boating Turkey

We had a wonderful time on the Janneau 53 Jessie A. The organisation,the transfers, the condition of the boat and the assistance of Mrs. Zerrin and Mr. Turgut for the boat introduction and the purchase of food and drinks were very useful and to to our full satisfaction. It was also advantageous to arrive one day earlier. This made it possible to to do the purchase and the takeover of the boat in no hurry and without stress. There were small things, like a blocked speedlog, some instrument settings, one toilet water flush and the sails, which needed some minor adjustment or repair by ourselves. However they did not at all harm our beautiful sailtrip in Turkey.
We shall with great pleasure contact you again for our next sail charter in Turkey.
We all have liked a lot Boating Turkey services. The boat was excellent and excellent maintained. A really professional team helped to ensure a memorable holidays: since the transfer from airport, to the reception in gocek with a complete check list and briefing, to the check out with a really professional and specialized team to assure the boat was delivered to next customer in really good conditions. Congratulations!
