Boating Turkey is indeed the correct choice, we had a fantastic boating holiday.
Everything was up to expectation, the material was in perfect condition and the people did a very good job in introducing us.
I wish you a lot of success with your business
We had a great time on our bareboat charter from Gocek in May 2014 aboard Kiwi (Sun Odyssey 42) . From start to finish the charter was perfect the arrangements made by Boating Turkey were precise and seamless, booking communications quick and simple, airport transfer smooth, charter base operator highly professional, helpful and thorough, and the boat was very well prepared and excellent value for money. I would certainly rate my satisfaction with both Boating Turkey as 100%, and look forward to chartering with you again next year.
Boating Turkey organized bareboat yacht in Turkey. Our team, eleven persons were fond of Tequila, Benetau Cyclades 50,5. It was in perfect condition and check-in was professional. Some little shortages were quickly liquidated. We had rather volatile weather including sunshine and thunderstorm, but Tequila had always high level performance. Sailing first time outside EU we got all necessary information about formalities and regulations. We'd like to thank Necmi for wonderful vacation.
During August/September 2015 we enjoyed a sailing holiday in Turkey and Greece which we started planning in November 2014. Quite a few friends showed an interest and we had to find a yacht for bare boat charter which answered our specific requirements for a two week period at the right time to suit 7 couples and at the right price. I sent out several inquiries to a number of charter companies found on the internet and Necmi from Boating Turkey was prompt in responding with a number of options for us to consider. It also was the only response which fully answered all our requirements.
This was our first sail in Turkish waters, in an area we know little of and also the first time crossing international borders sailing. These, together with the idea that I am dealing with a company of which the reputation can only be gauged through previous reviews, raised many questions. Although all of these were promptly and efficiently answered by Necmi during the months long planning stage of the trip, I was still a little apprehensive about what we would encounter once we got there.
On arrival in Bodrum, we received clear directions to the marina in Turgutreis where all the formalities were handled in a very friendly, yet professional manner by SHY, allowing us to depart on an unforgettable holiday experience. Additional information on custom agents on the Greek islands were accurate, but at the same time could not match the excellent service we received from all the officials and the charter company throughout the trip. Everybody really went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and without any need to worry about anything. Any problems encountered with the boat were dealt with efficiently and we were refunded for any interim expenditure to get us going again.
Thank you Necmi, for your patience with all our questions and for organising the ideal boat! I am not sure what your involvement was with the organisation of the perfect weather we experienced, but thank you for that too! Also pass on our gratitude to Cigdem Ulu from SHY for her assistance and efforts in making sure that their services were tailored to our needs. Also to Vassilis Kapadakis from the Kalymna Yachting Club and Dimitris Kastis from Greek Yacht Services on Leros, for their assistance with moorings, supplies, custom clearance, immigration and general advice.
From the entire crew of Carmen, thank you all for making our holiday a very special experience. We certainly hope we will be able to do this again in the not too distant future.
