I would like to congratulate Necmi Artar and his company for the superb idea of collecting all the charter boats available in Turkey in one website. Efficiently designed website makes the searching process much faster and easier. Our correspondence with Necmi was always prompt and up to the point. During our sailing holiday in Turkey, everything went according to the plan without any glitches. Thank you very much Necmi.
Fabulous trip. Gocek and the surrounding islands is a wonderful place to sail - spectacular scenery, great anchorages and restaurants, very friendly people. The boat was in first rate condition and whole trip went without a hitch. Couldn't recommend it more highly.
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.

Once again thank you so much for your amazing service. From the first email I send enquiring about the trip up until the day you said goodbye to us when we disembarked the gullet, you have been professional and helpful. The best thing was your excellent communication, every email was answered promptly. I is scary booking a holiday from a different country and all you can do is hope and pray that it will all worked out and that your are not being swindled. I can recommend Boating Turkey to anyone. The experience was amazing and we cannot wait for a next time.
