What our clients say!
Thank you very much for arranging our Turkish Gulet holiday in July, 2009. This was our second boating holiday with Boating Turkey, and we absolutely loved it! We chartered the Miriam Sophie, a 28 metre luxury gulet with two other families, and cruised from Marmaris, through Turkey, to Symi and Rhodes. Our captain and his family, who were the crew, were very amenable, and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic. The food was superb, you really wonder how they can whip up such great dishes on a boat! The coves and islands we visited were all gorgeous, and the highlight I think was our 3 nights in Symi, the harbour was just gorgeous, with Italian colonial architecture and brilliant cafes, then the following 2 nights were spent in little coves with the most magnificent blue water to swim in. The captain also took us to his home port in Turkey, Green Village, which was delightful.
The itinerary was very flexible, and crew happy to accommodate our choices. The boat was immaculately maintained, the cabins were large and roomy, the bathrooms were spacious and had a proper shower and toilet. There was loads of deck space both up front with sunbeds for all, and at the rear, which was enormous. We loved to sleep on deck, falling asleep with the stars at night. The captain was very skilled, we were amazed how he could manoevre such a large boat into tight spaces.
All in all, we had a brilliant experience. The booking and organization process was extremely simple, easy and smooth, and Necmi was very patient with us as we changed plans several times during the booking and departure period. The drinks etc were all pre-ordered via the net.
If you want a truly relaxing holiday, the sun and breeze in your face and not a care in the world, you can't beat this. No TV (they did actually have TV but we didn't tell the kids that) no phones, no worries.....
This was the first time we had chartered in Turkey. A friend had referred us to Boating Turkey. The experience exceeded our expectations. Transfers went smoothly, the boat was beautiful, well prepared and ready, the staff were patient and welcoming. Our dealings had a sense of transparency and honesty. And, of course, the Med was stunning. I have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey and SK Yachting in particular.
I just wanted to say a huge big thank you to you and Boating Turkey for the fantastic service we receive from the first email to the time we disembarked from your boat.
Our trip on your gullet was an experience none of us will ever forget and the 'little extras' you provided so effortlessly are much appreciated.
The staff on board the gullet the fantastic - attentive, caring and always just waiting to answer our every need.
A special thanks to Memet Snr who provided fantastic and healthy meals out of the tiny and very hot kitchen, Memet Jnr for the all the cleaning and endless round of drinks of and of course our very capable captain - JJ - who took us through some tricky situations to say the least. The crew were pleasant and caring and just knew how to be there but not be intrusive.
I would highly recommend you and your company to anyone who intends hiring a gullet for a holiday and would happily give a testimonial to anyone who asks.
Many thanks for making my sons' 21st birthday holiday so special - as you know we thoroughly enjoyed the belly dancer you arranged at such short notice.
Kind regards and once again a huge big thanks

This has been our first experience of sailing the Turkish coast and after that I have to recommend Boating Turkey. The booking procedure went fine, Necmi provide us with all the information we requested, and all the process was as expected: they were waiting for us at Dalaman airport with a first class vehicle, the boat was in perfect conditions and well equipped, the people at the Marina was very professional and efficient, and the sailing experience at the Lycian coast was simply marvelous, beatiful weather, cristal clear waters, superb landscapes and very friendly people.
I strongly recommend to sail Turkey and do it with the help of Necmi at Boating Turkey
