It is thought that the first settlement in Marmaris, whose history dates back to 3400 BC, began with the arrival of a tribe to the region, whose leader was called Kar. The area was then called Karla after him, and its location around the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas always made it an appealing region.
Suleyman the Magnificent assembled a force of 200,000 in 1522, whilst launching the siege of the Knights of St John's base in Rhodes (Rodos). Soon afterwards, he made the city more powerful with the rebuilding of the tiny castle overlooking the town. Lord Nelson and his entire fleet sheltered in the harbour in 1798, en route to Egypt to defeat Napoleon's armada at the Battle of Aboukir.
Marmaris therefore became a place where different civilisations reigned over time, and there is architectural and historical evidence of Egyptian, Asdur, Ion, Dor, Persian, Macedonian, Syrian, Roman, Byzantium, Seljuk and Ottoman presence.
Summers are extremely hot and dry, with daytime temperatures reaching up to 35 degrees, and winters are warm and wet, plunging to 5 degrees at night. The area is quite typical of a Mediterranean climate.
Once a sleepy fishing village, Marmaris has ballooned into one of the largest resorts on the Aegean coast, if not Turkey. Little of its history remains, as the town is now a modern development with tourism at its heart and soul. The population swells to a massive 200,000 in the summer, with most hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and shops catering to low-cost package holidays, although there are facilities for all budgets.
Despite the development which reaches around 10km along the west of the bay, Marmaris is also well-known for its expanse of green, present the whole year round thanks to the pine-covered hills which surround the town. There are many beaches around the bay, and there are ancient cities and seaside villages close by for day trips. The yacht harbour is the biggest and newest in Turkey, and therefore the busiest charter port especially for trips along the Turquoise Coast.
In addition to the climate, beaches and facilities of the town, the transportation infrastructure is a definite plus for attracting visitors. It has easy connections to the nearby airport Dalaman, ferries to Rhodes, and on the road to Datca and Fethiye. The harbour has attracted private boats from around the world, with yacht maintenance and production in the workshops on the Yalanci Strait. With the climate being comfortable even in winter, and the nearby impressive mountains and pine forests, Marmaris is likely to remain a popular and practical holiday spot for a long time

We rented 3 boats simultaneously (2 Lagoon 421 and 1 Oceanis 54) for 24 persons. The boats were in good shape, 1, 2 and 4 years old. The service from Boating Turkey staff during check-in and ceck-out was friendly and helpfull. The service of Boating Turkey / Necmi during the whole organization was perfect, efficient, friendly and the whole experience was so that we gladly would contact you the next time we'd like to rent a boat in Turkey.
Many thanks Necmi for organising our recent holiday on gulet Albatros A. You handled everything most efficiently, from our initial enquiry through to arranging our meals and ordering the drinks we wanted. The gulet was in as-new condition, and was kept spotlessly clean by our crew. Our captain took us to wonderful bays and islands. The food prepared by our chef was plentiful, varied and delicious. We miss it. All the crew were attentive, obliging and friendly. Our seaman APO helped us with our Turkish and was always available to take us to shore whenever we wanted. We have already recommended your company to some of our friends, and would have no hesitation recommending you to any prospective customers. We hope to see you again on a future holiday in your wonderful part of the world.

It has been a pleasure doing business right from the beginning of our contact with you.
Throughout our communication, your prompt replies to our queries, negotiation of the correct boat to charter, resolving the bank hurdles encountered, arrangements for transport transfers and readiness of the boat have all been much appreciated. Our travelling companions have complimented us on the smoothness of the entire holiday arrangement. We would like to relay this compliment to both you and your staff.
We had an awesome holiday in Turkey and were very pleased with both the appointment and performance of the Dufour 445 Lisa is a lovely boat which we enjoyed sailing. If we may make a small suggestion? A few extra cushions for the cockpit for back support and/or lounging on the deck would have been appreciated.
The service received was excellent. They were helpful and attentive to our needs. We were also very impressed by the attention to detail upon embarkation and disembarkation. You have a slick and thorough operation which gives us much confidence for future chartering in that one can be reasonably reassured that the boats are in a good sea worthy condition.
Thank you to you and your staff for making our sailing visit to Turkey a memorable one!
