What our clients say!
Your Dalaman pick-up and drop off was ready to go and Gocek was a nice little town with easy shopping and free delivery, we stayed the previous night at Gorkem Apartments which were absolutely superb with a fabulous breakfast. It was easy to both depart from and return to the marina, we sailed to the East and made a number of stops including stern tie-ups and swing anchor and mooring evenings. 14 days is essential if you want to relax and spend a couple of nights in the towns like Kalkan and Kas where we found loads of good restaurants esp Zula and Ottoman in Kalkan.
As for the sailing we all had a great time with Beaufort 2-7, the hand over was very simple and thorough, the staff were very helpful and the yacht was ready to go several hours earlier than the 16.00 hrs so we sailed out that afternoon and had our first meal at a 'jetty restaurant' a couple of hours away.
The Turkish marine regulations for sanitation and mooring in many of the bays mean beautiful clean water to swim in straight off the boat morning noon and night. The neighbouring yacht at one place told us this was, (along with New Zealand) the best place to sail. As to yourself, you answered every email quickly, sorted out any problem that arose, and when we had a gear breakage it was fixed as quickly as possible. Many thanks and we hope to come again but it is a long journey from N.Z
We've been back in Australia for 2 weeks now. It's winter here and the hot sunny days in Turkey seem like another world. We all had a wonderful week on the catamaran, 'Sweet Kitty' . The friends who sailed with us thoroughly enjoyed it and have thanked me for making the booking. The wind was a little elusive and we had to motor more often than we had hoped but she sailed well when we were able to. We found good moorings and enjoyed the local cuisine as well as visiting local shops and cooking on board other nights. The clear sea was a pleasure to swim and snorkel in.
The transport to and from the airport worked out well, as did the accommodation you booked for us for 2 nights after returning the boat. One couple left by hire car, booked through you, and that arrived as requested too. You have eight very satisfied clients. Thank you.
Necmi at Boating Turkey found us the perfect gulet and crew for our small family. Boating Turkey were completely professional in their dealings with us and we would highly recommend them. The boat was beautiful and the crew took us to some quiet and beautiful spots along the coast. Captain Mehmet and the crew were extremely courteous and kind. It was our daughter's birthday while we were away and they managed to get us a cake with her name on it without us even asking. It really was a holiday of a lifetime and we will never forget it.

Scott will unlikely have the time to respond so I though I would respond based on what he and my daughters said to me and my experience. I was so sorry not to go as it sounded like they had a great time and Turkey looks spectacularly beautiful. I am recovering well from the back surgery (but definitely would have preferred sailing!)
I appreciated all your help with the arrangements and your promptness on getting back to me with any questions.
They found the boat to be very clean, and with all the details as specified. The depth sounder did not work on the GPS console in the cockpit, and there were some issues with the alarm setting. ( The alarm went off on the depth at 10 meters....which meant the depth sounder was in a constant alarm state(noise!) while anchoring. ). The outboard motor stopped functioning day 4 or 5 ( bad gas?) .
Overall they were very satisfied and we would use your company again.
