What our clients say!
We had a wonderful week holidaying on board one of Boating Turkeys 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!
We want to thank your company and especially Mr. Namik, for the excellent holiday we have spent sailing in Turkey. The staff of both the company and the ports has been lovely. The waters calm and very clean, with few buildings near the coast. The sailboat has worked well, and Mr. Namik help us fixing small problems quickly.

We had our bareboat charter on July 2011. I must say we were really impressed at the way every detail was handled by Boating Turkey. They thought of every small thing we could need on board. Due to bad weather conditions and lack of experience of our crew members we had an unfortunate start of the charter. We ripped the main sail just couple hours after leaving the marina. We had 30 knots of wind which is usually an extreme weather condition in Bodrum. So we had a bad start. However their crew drove to the point where we were in only an hour and replaced our main sail. They didn't even require anything for that and we got our security deposit back in full amount.
We rented Papalagi which is a 34.5 feet Jeanneau. Boat was in perfect condition. It was perfectly clean and well kept.
If I can do this again next year the company I will work with Boating Turkey without any questions.
7 of us had the most superb weeks holiday on the Gullet Hasay in late June 2012. The boat had been completely renovated the previous year and was extremely comfortable. Our Captain, Typhoon, was fantastic with a good command of English and great sense of humour. Our Cook [ should be called a Chef ] named Marhoot [ sorry for spelling ] was so creative that whilst we had booked half board [ breakfast and 1 meal a day ] after 4 days we reprovisioned so that we did not have to get off the boat for meals. Memmo deserves a medal for his hard and enthusiastic work, he never allowed anyones glass to go dry at any time of the day or night, he decorated the dining table with fresh flowers and creative napkins for every meal all of this after cleaning and scrubbing every surface of the gullet every day. Well done to you all who made our holiday extremely memorable and we shall certainly be back next year and hope that Marhoot has not been made a captain and will still be in his spotless but tiny galley. Thank you all so much
