What our clients say!
Boating Turkey organized bareboat yacht in Turkey. Our team, eleven persons were fond of Tequila, Benetau Cyclades 50,5. It was in perfect condition and check-in was professional. Some little shortages were quickly liquidated. We had rather volatile weather including sunshine and thunderstorm, but Tequila had always high level performance. Sailing first time outside EU we got all necessary information about formalities and regulations. We'd like to thank Necmi for wonderful vacation.
I like to thank you for your service regarding our stay in Turkey 28,July to 11.August 2007
Everything went as planned.
The pickup at the airport, the apartments you booked for us and the 50 foot Bavaria , everything was great. Your staff in Göcek gave us an excellent service. This was the first time we rented a boat in the Mediterranean and our first visit to Turkey. These two weeks we sailed in Turkeys waters were wonderful. Going to sleep under the star bright sky every evening, was a joy. If any one is looking for good service, good boats, talk with Boating Turkey.
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

Having just returned from a week on Sun-World IX we have to say it was one of the best sailing trips we have ever had. The company “Boating Turkey” were wonderful to deal with from the very first email from Necmi. The “4 star” boat was very comfortable, well maintained and the captain and crew were excellent and waited on us hand and foot. The weather was excellent, sun shining every day and we visited some lovely bays and most of us swam every day. The water was crystal clear in most bays and although a little on the chilly side some days as it is tends to be in the Mediterranean, it was great to warm up in the sun then jump in to cool off. The chef was excellent and most of the food was typical Turkish style, made with very fresh ingredients and very tasty. The crew made a big effort to please everyone which is quite a feat in a party of 19 and also adapted meals to meet the special dietary requirements of some of our group. Although the group was large the boat was even larger and there was a cabin with ensuite for every 2 or 3 people and of course there was huge amounts of deck space to sunbathe, read or just lounge around. Some nights were warm and some people slept on the many cushions and sun beds up on deck but others found it was cool enough to sleep in their cabins with or without the air-conditioning working which was only when the generator was on. Having sailed at various places around the world on both bareboat and crewed charters over the last 32 years, we feel well qualified to say that this was a wonderful experience and we would love to sail with Boating Turkey again.
