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.
We rent a yacht for a week in October 2014. Together with our boys from 17 and 13 years old, we had a great time around Gocek.
Everything was easy and quick arranged and the yacht was fully equipped, unfortunately the dinghy had it's best time, one morning he was empty, but we managet.
It is definitely a holiday that we will do again with your company!
With king regards,
What a great holiday!
Back in the UK now!
Just wanted to say how impressed we were with this wonderful holiday
From the initial booking, to your helpful emails, the taxi transfer perfectly timed, the welcome on boarding by Mr Mehmet and the crew, all was faultless
The crew were very helpful and courteous and the meals were as good as any restaurant
The route was well chosen and gave us so much enjoyment visiting the coves and bays in such beautiful sorroundings
We would not hesitate in recommending this wonderful holiday to our friends
Thank you and well done
I booked a trip for a cabin charter that was going going from to Greek islands with Necmi from Boating Turkey. This was second time going on a gulet. First time it was wonderful, very well arranged. This time the cabin charter operatÃ¶r cancelled the trip 2 days before departure due to a political problem with Greece but the cabin charter operator did not replace it with another boat similiar that I booked.
I communicated with Necmi about not being happy with it and he immediately (with an hour) arranged another beautiful boat (Sumru Sultan) for me. This boat was going out of Marmaris instead of Bodrum. But Necmi helped on this immediately and he arranged all the transfer for free of charge. The drivers were on time and very cordial. I had am amazing time on board and highly recommend Necmi as an agent.
