What our clients say!
We had a good cruise from Bodrum to Marmaris during early September of 2013.
A chef is always important in situations like these and Hassan certainly rose to the occasion, delivering a range of tasty, nutritious and healthy meals doing more than justice to the Turkish cuisine under difficult conditions.
The boat hands Arkhan and Aktihm were extremely diligent, keeping the boat spotless at all times. Aktihm was particularly pleasant with an omnipresent mischievous smile!
Duran, the skipper, performed his task well, demonstrating good seamanship at all times and proving to be an expert at preparing just about anything on the bow mounted barbeque. He chose a sensible route, selecting good overnight stops in beautiful coves, passages and charming villages. Communicating our route, advice and suggestions about what to do ashore and engagement generally was somewhat limited.
Our diverse group from South Africa and New Zealand got on really well, truly enjoying the on board hospitality.
We were somewhat disappointed that the boat was not fully equipped to sail rather than motor all the time. An on board wind surfer and snorkelling gear would have been welcome as well.
Besides that, we had a great time. Boating Turkey were flexible regarding our needs arriving and departing and we will use them again.

Thank you very much for your mail of September 29. I planned to send you a mail as well to say how much we enjoyed our holidays. The boat was great, so was the wheather, but we especially really admired Marina and Simon, what a great couple and what great service they provided.
Thanks very much for booking this great ship and arranging all other facilities around our stay in Turkey.
This is the second year that we have organised our sailing holiday through Boating Turkey. When we were planning our holiday in 2005 we stumbled across their website and were very glad that we did so . Necmi was extremely helpful providing us with lots of options to choose from and the prices were quite reasonable. In 2005 we sailed from Bodrum and this year after discussing our options with Necmi we sailed from Dalaman.
Both times the process ran extremely smoothly. The filling in of forms took next to no time and it was very easy to transfer our deposit and final payment from a UK bank account.
The yachts were in excellent shape and the service on the ground each time was very professional and welcoming. We would definitely choose Boating Turkey again for any future sailing trips. We haven't yet planned our holidays for 2007, but rather think that we might be emailing Boating Turkey once again.
We had a safe return after a very enjoyable week in Perla del Mare 2.
Just to give you a feed back of our week.
What was good:
-The Captain and the crew generally speaking.
-The food very well cooked.
-The bays chosen by the Captain, very nice and quiet.
-The outside of the Gulet.
What was not good:
-The interior of the boat did not have any renovation as you said, she was not in a good condition, quite a lot of things did not work properly.
-The lay out was different of the one that was sent, and the crew were 5 and not 6 as shown on the photographs sent to us.
We changed our destination because of weather conditions, and we ended up by staying around Gocek, but we enjoyed very very much the week.
Thank you for the organization and I hope we will go back to Turkey again.
