Our charter from was 24/5 until 7/6 2014 from Marmaris for two weeks. We were group of ten, from Australia and New Zealand. I started to communicate with Necmi from Boating Turkey some months before the charter and found him to be most helpful from the start. Organising a trip like this for a group is disconcerting to say the least but Necmi helped to make it much easier by responding immediately to any questions I had. His helpful suggestions including wonderful Turkish wines were most welcome.
Our charter was onboard the "Azra Deniz" a 26 meter gulet complete with a crew of 3. She was not a five star but very comfortable in every way. The crew were sensational, the skipper, the chef and our ever smiling deckhand were always helpful and our itinerary included some of the wonderful villages, coves and historic sites of Turquoise Coast. We also has a visit to Simi in Greece which we all enjoyed. The weather was very kind to us, so there was plenty of swimming, canoeing and sunbathing, lots of time for relaxation as well. Each night we would decide on where we would go the next day and what we would do but most of the time we followed our skipper's suggestions, he really ensured we has quite diverse experiences both in scenery and activities.
Our chef constantly prepared the most amazing meals, to good in fact as the waistlines slowly expanded! We were just amazed at his skills.
Our group had the most wonderful holiday, our crew certainly made a major contribution to this. The coast of Turkey is exquisite and its people are so warm and friendly and the food and wine superb.
Necmi came to meet us when we arrived on the boat in Marmaris and we appreciated that he did. He drove down from Bodrum. He really knows his bussiness and that is so important when you are organising travel plans from so far away.
Thank you so much for your help Necmi.
We all had an amazing time one one will remember for a long time to come.

Finally back in New Zealand after a most successful cruise aboard Catch Me . Certainly compared with our previous four Lagoon 41 charters she was by far the best boat that we have had and we have already thanked Can for this . We think he appreciated our various modifications and purchases to improve the boat for future charterers . We also wish to thank you for your excellent communications particularly when it was necessary with the anchor winch control problems. We would have no hesitation of recommending Boating Turkey as a thoroughly reliable Company to charter from.
Thank you again

About our boat charter try in Turkey, Boating Turkey have found the most suitable boat and itinerary for us. I can say the crew was very nice people and the cook was perfect. Necmi, please take care to continue give this excellent service and I will recommand to my friends your company. See you next summer.
Our time in the Bodrum Peninsula aboard BoatingTurkey Vessel for us was definitely the high point of the year â the vessel was a new boat and we found her to be in excellent condition, with all the little facilities that make such a difference already organized. We appreciate the high level of professionalism you bring to the sailing as well, from the early arrangements to the preparation of the boat and review of the region we would be sailing in - your people did a very good job of both alerting us to local navigational concerns, and sharing their enthusiasm for the many wonderful places we visit.
We're happy to recommend you to anyone who might be considering chartering in your area, and look forward to the next time we can do it again!
