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!

I thank all the attention received to complete my week Cruising from Bodrum to Gocek. As for the boat: everything worked according to expectations, including all onboard services, all navigation equipment functioned as expected. People in the base has behaved excellent. The delivery of the vessel, the performance summary, the instructions were very clear and neat, support during the crossing, in reference to a single functional drinking water problem was solved with clear indications received by e-mail. The reception in Gocek was excellent, and we also completed a week Cruising with much satisfaction. I only have words of praise for the work done, and no doubt I will continue working with you on future plans in turkey.
My best wishes

We had a great time on the Asensena again on the summer 2013 . The meals were deliscious and rich, the captain and crew very friendly and helpful all the time,and the Gulet was luxery and clean.
Me and my friends are very satisfied about this trip and we like to say thank you for the perfect organisation.
We keep in touch Necmi, let's say until next year, i'll send you a mail in the early spring.

I would like to congratulate Necmi Artar and his company for the superb idea of collecting all the charter boats available in Turkey in one website. Efficiently designed website makes the searching process much faster and easier. Our correspondence with Necmi was always prompt and up to the point. During our sailing holiday in Turkey, everything went according to the plan without any glitches. Thank you very much Necmi.
