What our clients say!
After sailing a Lagoon 421 Ton Ton 6 weeks in September/October 2011 Sailing in Gocek, I can strongly recommend Boating Turkey and Mr Necmi Artar. From the first contact in autumn 2010 until the final week in October 2011 it has been a pleasure to have discussions with Mr Necmi Artar. I am for the moment planning an eventuality proceed next year. If so, I will for sure use Boating Turkey for my planning.
We are 3 couples in our 60´s..We already had some sailing experience at the Mediterranean Sea and we planned during a whole year, a new trip , visiting new places and sailing other seas.
We had not to many information and tips for sailing the Turkish South Coast but we knew, through friends comments, is a great place.
Looking to rent a boat, I contact some brokers. After compare their offers and the way they attend our requirements, we decided to deal Boating Turkey...
Necmi tried hard to find the proper boat at a nice locations to serve our one way one week sailing plan. Great choice!! We received a very fine boat, brand new, a lot of recommendation to have a relaxed and interested sail experience and even very friendly help with the luggage we were carrying and were no useful on board.
The skipper, was very professional and very kind person.
We really enjoyed our trip.
Thank you Necmi !!
See you again...
Dear Mr. Artar,
I can confirm my crew and I had a very pleasant week on the 2BISI.
The boat was in perfect shape and everything was nice and clean. The people at the marina were extremely friendly and helpfull. I will certainly recommend your company Boating Turkey to my sailing friends.

During August/September 2015 we enjoyed a sailing holiday in Turkey and Greece which we started planning in November 2014. Quite a few friends showed an interest and we had to find a yacht for bare boat charter which answered our specific requirements for a two week period at the right time to suit 7 couples and at the right price. I sent out several inquiries to a number of charter companies found on the internet and Necmi from Boating Turkey was prompt in responding with a number of options for us to consider. It also was the only response which fully answered all our requirements.
This was our first sail in Turkish waters, in an area we know little of and also the first time crossing international borders sailing. These, together with the idea that I am dealing with a company of which the reputation can only be gauged through previous reviews, raised many questions. Although all of these were promptly and efficiently answered by Necmi during the months long planning stage of the trip, I was still a little apprehensive about what we would encounter once we got there.
On arrival in Bodrum, we received clear directions to the marina in Turgutreis where all the formalities were handled in a very friendly, yet professional manner by SHY, allowing us to depart on an unforgettable holiday experience. Additional information on custom agents on the Greek islands were accurate, but at the same time could not match the excellent service we received from all the officials and the charter company throughout the trip. Everybody really went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and without any need to worry about anything. Any problems encountered with the boat were dealt with efficiently and we were refunded for any interim expenditure to get us going again.
Thank you Necmi, for your patience with all our questions and for organising the ideal boat! I am not sure what your involvement was with the organisation of the perfect weather we experienced, but thank you for that too! Also pass on our gratitude to Cigdem Ulu from SHY for her assistance and efforts in making sure that their services were tailored to our needs. Also to Vassilis Kapadakis from the Kalymna Yachting Club and Dimitris Kastis from Greek Yacht Services on Leros, for their assistance with moorings, supplies, custom clearance, immigration and general advice.
From the entire crew of Carmen, thank you all for making our holiday a very special experience. We certainly hope we will be able to do this again in the not too distant future.
