What our clients say!
Our recent two week holiday with Captain Cevat, Hassan & Bulent onboard Yildizhanlar 11 with 3 other couples from Australia, I would describe as a wonderful life experience that was thoroughly enjoyable with lovely memories!
Where to start? The scenery from Bodrum to Gocek was incredible, the swimming in such clear tranqual waters amazing.
The food Bulent cooked was absolutely devine, always varied and obviously lots of preparation and thought put into each meal, we ate like kings and queens! The chips in the morning omelette, the fresh fish and chicken dishes were a real hit!
Captain Cevat was a delight, his knowledge of the areas we travelled, his expertise sailing and handling his gulet was obvious and reassuring, we felt very safe and looked after. We appreciated that Captain Cevat took the time to accompany us on some of our excursions, we obviously learnt more about the surroundings by having him with us to ask any questions and knowing where to go to get the best view.
But the real hidden treasure onboard Yildizhanlar 11 was Hassan, his gentle, obliging manner to our every whim was just amazing. Hassan made a point to remember what each of us liked to drink upon waking, he would have a lovely cup of turkish tea, coffee or apple tea ready for us. All throughout the day, Hassan made sure we were comfortable, well fed and watered (including the best knock your socks off gin and tonics!) he took care of all our domestic duties. Hassan did this in a very unobtrusive and professional manner, it was an absolute delight to of met him. (His smile is priceless!)
I could not fault our trip, it was just what we were looking for, lots of relaxing, reading, eating, relaxing, sleeping, eating, drinking, sleeping!
I hope other Australians take advantage of this wonderful adventure and have a wonderful trip on a gulet like us.
We had an absolutely fabulous time on Pulp and Paper (Beneteau Oceanis 50)! Thank you very much for your help with everything and for recommending the boat. Despite being 5 years old, all the instruments, fittings, sail and rigging were in very good working order. We didn't have any problems at all in the 2 weeks we were on it. Despite its size, the four of us were able to sail, berth and moor the boat very easily.
Checking in was also a pleasure. The boat was ready for early check-in, as requested, so thank you for that too. Cigdem was ready and waiting for us at the boat to do the check-in paperwork, and it was fast and hassle-free. (In charters we've been on before we had to wait in charter offices for more than one hour to sort out paperwork etc. After being on a 20+ hour flight from Australia, the last thing we wanted was to stand in a hot, crowded office to do paperwork!)
So thank you again. We love sailing and cruising in Turkey. The coast is very well set up for sailing, people are friendly and welcoming and there are so many interesting places to see and things to do. We will definitely go back to see more!
Meri Ariffin & the Pulp and Paper crew
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.

We had a great holiday onboard Remo and I am sure we will return to enjoy Bodrum and the sorounding waters.
