What our clients say!
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey and Necmi Artar in particular for a great time we've spent this September!
When we decided to rent boats I sent some requests for a two boats charter to some companies. Imagine my surprise when some hours later Iâve got reply from Necmi! He answered all my questions immediately, gave me comprehensive information of charter. Some days later our holiday was fully booked and paid for.
Skipper of one of our boat was Turkish skipper Angen Deniz. Turkey, nice weather, good wind, fantastic sea - everything was great. Angen showed us a lot of beautiful little bays which we would have no visited ourselves.
Thank you for your excellent service.
I would certainly recommend Boating Turkey and Necmi Artar to anyone who asks me about yacht charter in Turkey.
We hope to work with Boating Turkey again in the future!

Salute to Capitan Yavuz Kose and Cook Serkan Babayigit (nicknamed Captain Cook by our group).
Along with Boating Turkey they were responsible for one of the most enjoyable weeks we as a family with our in law children have had in our lives.
This was a dream come true to us as we have been dreaming about this cruise for 6 years as we did plan a similar trip 6 years ago, but had to abandon it as 2 of the couples pulled out. My first contact with Boating Turkey for this trip was already in May last year and I had a very responsive feedback from Necmi on every e-mail that I have sent to him. He was very helpful in assisting us in all the arrangements.
Due to a limited budget we chartered the smallest boat that we could get hold of, but we were pleasantly surprised with the spaciousness of the interior of the boat. The two smaller cabins were a bit uncomfortable but fine for the two younger couples in our group. We fortunately experienced excellent weather and could therefore spend all the time on the deck. Gathering as a family on the foredeck while cruising was a real family binding experience.
Our captain and chef were excellent hosts as they were always there but never intruding into our privacy despite the limited circulation space. Yavuz gave us a feeling of having everything under control at all times even during a very rough spot on the open sea when we were cruising against a very strong wind. Compliments to our wonderful chef Serkan who had the ability to prepare the most wonderful meals in his small kitchen. Lunch and dinner was always a pleasant surprise with the fresh fish speared by then at night something very special.
Even to us as South Africans with a very weak currency the trip was very affordable and goes highly recommended. It was an unforgettable week on the Turkish coast.

Just a quick note to say that all of us very much enjoyed the cruise. Both the crew and the boat were excellent and the itinerary great. We look forward to taking another cruise with Boating Turkey.
This is the second year that we have organised our sailing holiday through Boating Turkey. When we were planning our holiday in 2005 we stumbled across their website and were very glad that we did so . Necmi was extremely helpful providing us with lots of options to choose from and the prices were quite reasonable. In 2005 we sailed from Bodrum and this year after discussing our options with Necmi we sailed from Dalaman.
Both times the process ran extremely smoothly. The filling in of forms took next to no time and it was very easy to transfer our deposit and final payment from a UK bank account.
The yachts were in excellent shape and the service on the ground each time was very professional and welcoming. We would definitely choose Boating Turkey again for any future sailing trips. We haven't yet planned our holidays for 2007, but rather think that we might be emailing Boating Turkey once again.
