All of us thought that the Ayaz was by far the most well-kept and beautiful gulet that we saw while in Turkey. Captain Ayaz and his crew were professional and friendly. The food was great and the service was outstanding. The boat trip exceeded our expectations and we would love to come again and get the same boat.
Thank you for your helpfulness in making this a truly memorable experience for all of us.

Your Dalaman pick-up and drop off was ready to go and Gocek was a nice little town with easy shopping and free delivery, we stayed the previous night at Gorkem Apartments which were absolutely superb with a fabulous breakfast. It was easy to both depart from and return to the marina, we sailed to the East and made a number of stops including stern tie-ups and swing anchor and mooring evenings. 14 days is essential if you want to relax and spend a couple of nights in the towns like Kalkan and Kas where we found loads of good restaurants esp Zula and Ottoman in Kalkan.
As for the sailing we all had a great time with Beaufort 2-7, the hand over was very simple and thorough, the staff were very helpful and the yacht was ready to go several hours earlier than the 16.00 hrs so we sailed out that afternoon and had our first meal at a 'jetty restaurant' a couple of hours away.
The Turkish marine regulations for sanitation and mooring in many of the bays mean beautiful clean water to swim in straight off the boat morning noon and night. The neighbouring yacht at one place told us this was, (along with New Zealand) the best place to sail. As to yourself, you answered every email quickly, sorted out any problem that arose, and when we had a gear breakage it was fixed as quickly as possible. Many thanks and we hope to come again but it is a long journey from N.Z
We (3 friends) decided in early April to take a boating trip to Turkey and having reviewed a number companies we decided to go with Boating Turkey - our main reason to go for them was they proivde all the details we needed to make our decision without much effort. This experience got better as we began our booking and all our communications with Boating Turkey - I have to say that they are one of the most professional organisation I have dealt with in booking a holiday . We arrived in Bodrum for our holiday and everthing was as we expected or better - the transfer from the airport , the boat , the crew (we had a great captain and cook ), the places we visited, the food and the general atmosphere which made our holiday a most relaxing, chilled out week. This was a great holiday and one that we will remember for a long time. We will do it again next year I hope.
Thank you for everything
Thanks to Boating Turkey. We Just completed a great 5 days trip to Göcek. We are 3 (60 years schoolmates) friends. Mr Necmi was extremely helpful in planning our vacation. The Boat was Sun Odyssey 37 (JAMBOO) was middle age (2000 model) but very lovely lady. The price was very reasonable, the boat was in very good condition withot any problem during the sailing and had everything that we needed. The collection of the boat and the handling back was very easy and efficent. We were also very impressed by the attention to detail upon embarkation and disembarkation. The whole trip was excellent. We enjoy departing from Fethiye Ece marina and doing a round trip around Fethiye, Göcek Bay continuing to Ekincik My Marina. Göcek was wonderful we spend four days in Göcek and found numerous little bays to swim in and also pleasand bay side restaurants for dinner.. Thank to Boating Turkey, Mr Necmi and all the staff for making our sailing a memorable one.
