What our clients say!
We had an absolutely fabulous time on Pulp and Paper (Beneteau Oceanis 50)! Thank you very much for your help with everything and for recommending the boat. Despite being 5 years old, all the instruments, fittings, sail and rigging were in very good working order. We didn't have any problems at all in the 2 weeks we were on it. Despite its size, the four of us were able to sail, berth and moor the boat very easily.
Checking in was also a pleasure. The boat was ready for early check-in, as requested, so thank you for that too. Cigdem was ready and waiting for us at the boat to do the check-in paperwork, and it was fast and hassle-free. (In charters we've been on before we had to wait in charter offices for more than one hour to sort out paperwork etc. After being on a 20+ hour flight from Australia, the last thing we wanted was to stand in a hot, crowded office to do paperwork!)
So thank you again. We love sailing and cruising in Turkey. The coast is very well set up for sailing, people are friendly and welcoming and there are so many interesting places to see and things to do. We will definitely go back to see more!
Meri Ariffin & the Pulp and Paper crew
We chartered a boat via Boating Turkey for 1 week in August 2012, and had an excellent cruise.
From the moment we booked in March 2012 till embarcation and disembarcation- Necmi helped us with all our queries to ensure that the trip was perfect and that our satisfaction guaranteed.
The crew was constantly going out of their way to make sure we were satisfied- thus I take this opportunity to thank Captain Yilderim- our chef Yukcel- and of course Recep who helped us with absolutely everything and kept the boat clean at all times.
I would easily recommend Boating Turkey to any friends or family seeking a cruise / charter in Turkey.

We had a good cruise from Bodrum to Marmaris during early September of 2013.
A chef is always important in situations like these and Hassan certainly rose to the occasion, delivering a range of tasty, nutritious and healthy meals doing more than justice to the Turkish cuisine under difficult conditions.
The boat hands Arkhan and Aktihm were extremely diligent, keeping the boat spotless at all times. Aktihm was particularly pleasant with an omnipresent mischievous smile!
Duran, the skipper, performed his task well, demonstrating good seamanship at all times and proving to be an expert at preparing just about anything on the bow mounted barbeque. He chose a sensible route, selecting good overnight stops in beautiful coves, passages and charming villages. Communicating our route, advice and suggestions about what to do ashore and engagement generally was somewhat limited.
Our diverse group from South Africa and New Zealand got on really well, truly enjoying the on board hospitality.
We were somewhat disappointed that the boat was not fully equipped to sail rather than motor all the time. An on board wind surfer and snorkelling gear would have been welcome as well.
Besides that, we had a great time. Boating Turkey were flexible regarding our needs arriving and departing and we will use them again.

I was very content with the rental, everything went smooth. Especially the effort to fix the broken gear box in Anastasia was well appreciated. In my boat Lioness everything went smooth. I already gave some technical feedback regarding mooring lines etc at the check out. One small thing my crew wanted to mention is that the towels could be of different colors in order to recognize them better during the week.
Looking forward to sailing with Boating Turkey again.
