What our clients say!
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.
Dear Necmi Bey,
In 2013, we rented a bareboat in Göcek. Nature and weather was heavenly and we had a wonderful week but our boat had many problems which gave us hard times.
This year we contacted you via the internet among many others and you gave us the best price together with impressive references. When we arrived to the marina, our boat was ready 3 hours in advance.It was clean, we were well received and informed of the boat.After spending a week in the boat, I can say it was very well maintained and everything functioned well.We had a great sailing week thanks to your punctuality and close concern.
We are very much looking forward for our sailing holiday next year knowing we will have the best with your efforts and experience.
We had the most stunning week on board SUNWORLD VI in September 2013. Everything from the accommodation/cabins, outdoor eating and lounging areas, food (thank you Mustafa), captain and crew were perfect.
I would definitely recommend Boating Turkey to our friends and look forward to doing another gulet cruise in the future.

Thank you me and all our crew members confirmed that the boat delivered was in a good shape, even for a charterboat in a very good condition. The boat was extremely well equipped. Transfer from/to Airport was superb and I will call you if I will be back in Turkey next time.
