What our clients say!
Dear Mr. Artar,
You get this answer from very satisfied clients. We really enjoyed our holidays. All the people we have met were friendly and helpful. The area around Göcek is particular beautiful. The weather has been as in the catalogues. Sailing in the smooth spring time winds on a well equiped boat was so easy.
And you did a big deal to our satisfaction! Already during our e-mail-contact you built up a warm and friendly atmosphere. We have always felt being well informed. Whatever you told us, it has been correct. There have never been any problems, in contacting, booking, changing, paying, in- or outchecking. Again we thank you a lot for the free ride to Antalya - more than 200 kms! - in a quite new and comfortable car with a wide luggage boot and big windows to be fed up with a marvellous landscape. It was a fortune to change the harbour because we like the small city of Göcek. Mr. Turgut is a smooth and gentle man, he did everything to comfort us. He has always been reachable if we tried to contact him. And we were lucky to get a bigger boat, so we took profit from a lot of space. The Hey Joe is a boat without useless things but good sailing equipment. Roll-Fock and Roll-Groß make sailing easy, especially the autopilot because we always had a quite sea. As we had absolute good weather conditions we need not bring us or the boat to the limit. Though we think she would work greatly. The plotter and the gps might be helpful things then - we only used them to control what we could see by eye. The good cards and the detailed book about harbours and bays were best helpers to find a jolly good place in a bay for the night. However, we intensively used the platform for bathing and the dinghy for short trips. We loved to have good kitchen facilities to prepare the delightful Turkish fish and vegetables. A shower in the lighted and big dimensioned bathroom was always an enliven action. We never felt cold in the bed-linen.
Best wishes for a good season

Salute to Capitan Yavuz Kose and Cook Serkan Babayigit (nicknamed Captain Cook by our group).
Along with Boating Turkey they were responsible for one of the most enjoyable weeks we as a family with our in law children have had in our lives.
This was a dream come true to us as we have been dreaming about this cruise for 6 years as we did plan a similar trip 6 years ago, but had to abandon it as 2 of the couples pulled out. My first contact with Boating Turkey for this trip was already in May last year and I had a very responsive feedback from Necmi on every e-mail that I have sent to him. He was very helpful in assisting us in all the arrangements.
Due to a limited budget we chartered the smallest boat that we could get hold of, but we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the interior of the boat. The two smaller cabins were a bit uncomfortable but fine for the two younger couples in our group. We fortunately experienced excellent weather and could therefore spend all the time on the deck. Gathering as a family on the foredeck while cruising was a real family binding experience.
Our captain and chef were excellent hosts as they were always there but never intruding into our privacy despite the limited circulation space. Yavuz gave us a feeling of having everything under control at all times even during a very rough spot on the open sea when we were cruising against a very strong wind. Compliments to our wonderful chef Serkan who had the ability to prepare the most wonderful meals in his small kitchen. Lunch and dinner was always a pleasant surprise with the fresh fish speared by then at night something very special.
Even to us as South Africans with a very weak currency the trip was very affordable and goes highly recommended. It was an unforgettable week on the Turkish coast.

Boating Turkey organised for us the most wonderful 7 day holiday on a gullet cruising down the coast of Turkey, July 2013. We are two Australian families with four children aged between 5 and 11. Necmi responded quickly to all our questions and queries and provided us with exceptional service and attention to detail he found us the perfect boat for two families and organised a wonderful local Turkish captain and crew. We would not hesitate to book with Necmi and Boating Turkey again.
