What our clients say!
We had a great time on our bareboat charter from Gocek in May 2014 aboard ‘Kiwi’ (Sun Odyssey 42) . From start to finish the charter was perfect – the arrangements made by Boating Turkey were precise and seamless, booking communications quick and simple, airport transfer smooth, charter base operator highly professional, helpful and thorough, and the boat was very well prepared and excellent value for money. I would certainly rate my satisfaction with both Boating Turkey as 100%, and look forward to chartering with you again next year.
Necmi, I can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you spent making our sailing holiday unforgettable. I had a million questions about sailing in Turkey and sent you numerous emails. You always responding back to each and every email right away and provided clear instructions, information and details. In addition, I spent some time researching other brokers and charter companies operating in Turkey and your rates were by far the most competitive. Our trip turned out perfect in every way. Our airport transfers, pre & post hotel recommendations were brilliant! The sailboat was beautiful and well equipped and we appreciated your sailing route recommendations. Sailing in Turkey is so easy – compared to the San Francisco Bay were we are from. If was such a pleasant and relaxing experience. Fantastic seaside restaurants you can eat at every night – only accessible by boat. All the markets catering to the sailing community made shopping for supplies a piece of cake – they all deliver right to the boat! Best of all was the natural beauty of the Turkish cost. This is unlike any place in the world. Our vacation exceeded all our expectations and we already decided we will be back next summer. We couldn’t have done this without you and your help. Thanks again for being part of this amazing experience – we will be in touch when we start to book our 2014 vacation!
All the best,
We would like to give you some feedback on our experience on our recent boating holiday in Turkey.
We were very impressed with the service starting with the transfer from the airport to Skopea Marina. On arrival we were welcomed by very efficient and professional staff who briefed us under the shade of the trees. Inge was especially helpful giving us a lot of advice and information on the sailing area and conditions. We also found the magazine ‘The Bay Express’ very informative and we referred to it on a daily basis.
Our boat ‘Opal’ was well equipped and spotlessly clean with fresh new linen and towels. Everything on board was well maintained and operational.
We thoroughly enjoyed sailing in Turkey. We loved the friendly people, wonderful food, beautiful scenery and clear turquoise water. We were also very impressed by the concern for the ecology.
We will definitely be back to explore more of your beautiful coastline.

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!
