What our clients say!
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.
When you make an online booking with Boating Turkey you are ensuring more than a top class holiday, you are establishing contact with Necmi Artar.
So what, you might think!!
Well, not only will Necmi look after your Gulet cruising requirements, he can sort out many more of the associated things that are essential to your break, such as transfers from & to the Airport, hotel accommodations, excursions while you are shore-based, transfers from the hotel to the Bodrum marina and back again on completion of your cruise. On our behalf he even checked availability and booked us into the hotel we had found on the internet and specifically wanted to stay at!!
With service like this, it will come as no surprise to learn that the Gulet cruise through the Gulf of Gokova was brilliant. The service was great – Captain and 2 crew to look after just 9 of us – fresh food every day, plenty of cold drinks and beautiful scenery and swimming opportunities.
I can thoroughly recommend this holiday for total relaxation and enjoyment and cannot thank Necmi enough for ensuring that all worked out perfectly
Salute to Capitan Yavuz Kose and Cook Serkan Babayigit (nicknamed Captain Cook by our group).
Along with Boating Turkey they were responsible for one of the most enjoyable weeks we as a family with our in law children have had in our lives.
This was a dream come true to us as we have been dreaming about this cruise for 6 years as we did plan a similar trip 6 years ago, but had to abandon it as 2 of the couples pulled out. My first contact with Boating Turkey for this trip was already in May last year and I had a very responsive feedback from Necmi on every e-mail that I have sent to him. He was very helpful in assisting us in all the arrangements.
Due to a limited budget we chartered the smallest boat that we could get hold of, but we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the interior of the boat. The two smaller cabins were a bit uncomfortable but fine for the two younger couples in our group. We fortunately experienced excellent weather and could therefore spend all the time on the deck. Gathering as a family on the foredeck while cruising was a real family binding experience.
Our captain and chef were excellent hosts as they were always there but never intruding into our privacy despite the limited circulation space. Yavuz gave us a feeling of having everything under control at all times even during a very rough spot on the open sea when we were cruising against a very strong wind. Compliments to our wonderful chef Serkan who had the ability to prepare the most wonderful meals in his small kitchen. Lunch and dinner was always a pleasant surprise with the fresh fish speared by then at night something very special.
Even to us as South Africans with a very weak currency the trip was very affordable and goes highly recommended. It was an unforgettable week on the Turkish coast.
