we had a wonderful time on the SAMBA !
To be honest, we have never seen a boat that was so well maintained, well equiped and clean as this one ! We have been sailing with our friends for many years already and we have been to other places in countries such as Greece, Italy and Croatia.
This Broadblue 435 was absolutely great to sail with and we would love to rent it or a similar one again.
Thanks for your help and hopefully we'll be back again some day !
and the rest of the crew: JP, Marion, Andre, Ingrid and Arjo
Thank you very much.
I had a wonderful holiday and a lot of fun. The weather was fantastic. The ship Niki was very good and all went well.
The Skipper was very professional and know his business. Tanji the Hostess is really the person who made the best of this week
She is just the perfect person to make wonderful holidays, very friendly, very discreet, fantastic cooking, good knowledge in sailing, speaks very good English.
The regions visited are fantastic all was just perfect and I am surely will recommend Turkish Sailing Holidays.
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey and Necmi in particular!
It happens very rarely when I'm completely satisfied with the services offered, but this was the case.
In the beginning of may 2008 I was getting completely annoyed with constant delays and misinformation after numerous attempts to charter a catamaran via Russian or Greek companies. It was then I found Boating Turkey website, which straight away proved to be well laid-out and informative. So I sent a request for a catamaran charter and expected to wait another week or two for a reply, the usual time for the other companies. Imagine my surprise when 3 hours later I got my reply! One week later our holiday was fully booked and paid for.
I was very pleased with this punctuality and thoughtfulness. I felt like I was talking to a friend rather than a company that's trying to sell me something. Another advantage of Boating Turkey was a very detailed contract, with no hidden costs, everything laid out clearly (apparently this happens very rarely).
Our first charter with Boating Turkey was on board Lavezzi 40 catamaran, my husband and I, accompanied by a Turkish skipper Umit. Turkey, weather, wind - everything was great. Umit showed us a lot of beautiful little places which we would have never found ourselves.
Our next charter was with a larger crew of 6 people, with a skipper named Hans. This trip was even better than the 1st, it was a perfect mix of active sailing, chilling in the little deserted bays, practicing various maneuvers on a catamaran, and discovering places of cultural interest. Hans impressed us with his complete knowledge of sailing and Turkey in particular, as well as his great sense of humor.
About us: we are a married couple in our early fifties, my husband got his RYA Dayskipper qualification last year, I completed a RYA Competent Crew course. We decided to charter a few boats first with the skipper to feel completely confident when we charter the boat for ourselves.
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey, and Necmi, Umit and Hans in particular for a great time we've spent this summer! We hope to work with Boating Turkey again in the future!
