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.
We just returned from our week long charter aboard Venla, a 45' Jenneau Sun Odyssey out of Gocek, and we had the best trip! The boat was in great shape, very well maintained, and super comfortable. Nemci and the all of the staff was really helpful and I would recommend them highly. Gocek, Fethiye and all of the islands and bays in the area were all beautiful and well worth visiting!
Thanks for a very special trip!

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!
