What our clients say!
Our group of six travelled from the USA to charter the 3 cabin Oceanis 50 that you arranged for us. I have chartered yachts many times over the last 30 years. Our experience with your agency was flawless, from the information provided about our yacht, her equipment and condition, to your timely response to my many inquiries. The Port of Gocek, and the Skopea Marina operation is truly impressive, which comes as no surprise when you see some of the fine yachts that are berthed at the facility. Your contractor that handles the inspection, care and maintenance of the fleet is extremely professional and patient. We were able to get underway early on the first day of our charter. Our group likes to sail, and over the course of the week we were able to sail as far East as Kalkan and as far West as Ekincik, enjoying the beautiful and rugged scenery along the way. It was also a pleasant surprise to be able to communicate with such ease everywhere we visited. While we had the capability of six languages on board, the easiest for us was English, and it was spoken everywhere we went. In summary, our yacht was well equipped and in excellent condition, and our group had a terrific experience that I would recommend to others without reservation.
Well back in Denmark we all want to thank you for a perfect arranged holiday onboard Perla del Mar. Everything was as our high expectations or even better. Your timing with plane and bus and boat ( and back again) was perfect. The boat was spacious, well equipped and very comfortable to be onboard. All the people we met, especially the crew, were very friendly and helpful. The food onboard was very well prepared wit lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, fish (seafood) and lamb. One of our best family-holidays ever....
When my family have plans for next years holiday ready I will contact you to hear if you have any proposal.
Maybe Perla del Mar going west of Marmmaris...?
KE and Family
Thank you very much for arranging our Turkish Gulet holiday in July, 2009. This was our second boating holiday with Boating Turkey, and we absolutely loved it! We chartered the Miriam Sophie, a 28 metre luxury gulet with two other families, and cruised from Marmaris, through Turkey, to Symi and Rhodes. Our captain and his family, who were the crew, were very amenable, and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic. The food was superb, you really wonder how they can whip up such great dishes on a boat! The coves and islands we visited were all gorgeous, and the highlight I think was our 3 nights in Symi, the harbour was just gorgeous, with Italian colonial architecture and brilliant cafes, then the following 2 nights were spent in little coves with the most magnificent blue water to swim in. The captain also took us to his home port in Turkey, Green Village, which was delightful.
The itinerary was very flexible, and crew happy to accommodate our choices. The boat was immaculately maintained, the cabins were large and roomy, the bathrooms were spacious and had a proper shower and toilet. There was loads of deck space both up front with sunbeds for all, and at the rear, which was enormous. We loved to sleep on deck, falling asleep with the stars at night. The captain was very skilled, we were amazed how he could manoevre such a large boat into tight spaces.
All in all, we had a brilliant experience. The booking and organization process was extremely simple, easy and smooth, and Necmi was very patient with us as we changed plans several times during the booking and departure period. The drinks etc were all pre-ordered via the net.
If you want a truly relaxing holiday, the sun and breeze in your face and not a care in the world, you can't beat this. No TV (they did actually have TV but we didn't tell the kids that) no phones, no worries.....
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
