What our clients say!
A few weeks ago, I told my wife I wanted to visit family in the Netherlands. She agreed but wanted to go to another country for half the visit just to see something new. She was thinking Belgium or Germany or? The first thing I did was start looking for a last minute catamaran to charter. We have never done this before and did not know what to expect. I read lots of warnings on the internet about booking from smaller companies, but this was the only boat available in our price range. We were also a little unsure about travel in Turkey, with all the world news lately etc. We are back on the docks after an absolutely amazing time on the water and totally enjoyed the hospitality of the Turkish people we have met on our travels. The people at Aura Charters are excellent to work with and full of smiles and quick to help. I just wanted to send you this message of thanks and appreciation for everything you have done for us.
I wish you fair winds and following seas
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

Thanks to Boating Turkey. We Just completed a great 5 days trip to Göcek. We are 3 (60 years schoolmates) friends. Mr Necmi was extremely helpful in planning our vacation. The Boat was Sun Odyssey 37 (JAMBOO) was middle age (2000 model) but very lovely lady. The price was very reasonable, the boat was in very good condition withot any problem during the sailing and had everything that we needed. The collection of the boat and the handling back was very easy and efficent. We were also very impressed by the attention to detail upon embarkation and disembarkation. The whole trip was excellent. We enjoy departing from Fethiye Ece marina and doing a round trip around Fethiye, Göcek Bay continuing to Ekincik My Marina. Göcek was wonderful we spend four days in Göcek and found numerous little bays to swim in and also pleasand bay side restaurants for dinner.. Thank to Boating Turkey, Mr Necmi and all the staff for making our sailing a memorable one.

I would like to tell you how delighted we were with our wonderful yachting holiday in Turkey. The service from you during the booking process was outstanding. In particular we appreciated how flexible and accommodating you were about working in with our travel dates.
Everything was exactly as you described it. The Dougie T was immaculately presented and the service was very professional. Nothing was too much trouble. A delightful touch was the welcome pack they provided.
We had a marvellous holiday and look forward to repeating it. We also thoroughly enjoyed our stays in Marmaris and Bodrum
Thank you for your help. We would be happy to recommend you.
