What our clients say!
We commenced discussions with Necmi from Boating Turkey some 9 months before our holiday in Turkey and found him to be extremely helpful in planning our yacht charter in terms of selecting the type of yacht, planning the itinerary and general information on holidaying in Turkey. We selected a luxury Gulet “ Sagapo “ from Bodrum and the experience exceeded all our expectations. From the moment we boarded the Captain and crew went out of their way to ensure we had an experience we would never forget. I can certainly recommend Boating Turkey and will use them again if ever planning a boating holiday in Turkey .

We had a wonderful week holidaying on board one of Boating Turkey’s gulets in September 2016. We left from Marmaris, visited Rhodes, Bozborum, a number of Turkish bays, Datca, Symi, Nisyros, Kos and disembarked at Bodrum. We found Necmi Artar very straightforward and helpful to deal with during the planning and arrival phase and it was great to be able to be so flexible in choosing our itinerary. The crew were very friendly and keen to help and Volkan was a wonderful cook and spearfisherman! We would definitely be very happy to use Boating Turkey again and Turkey remains one of our favourite places in the world. If only it was closer to New Zealand!
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.
I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our trip (May 28 to June 4, 2011) on the Blue Capricorn. The crew of 5 was excellent. Maseih Balci, the captain was great. He was very helpful with all our on the boat and on shore needs and arranged transportation to visit some of the ancient sites. The chef, Muret Sener made the most delicious meals. They were so good that we decided to have all our meals on the boat. In this way, we didn’t have to make any meal decisions, leaving all the choices to him, which we all enjoyed.
The arrangements made by Boating Turkey were wonderful. Everything went according to plan and I have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone. Thanks for all the arrangements.
