I was recently on board the Grand Mare with Michelle Neumann and my friends. We had an amazing adventure and I personally loved being on board every minute. The crew were friendly and respectful in every way. Having said that I would jump at the chance to get back on board and go sailing again. Hope this is of some help.
This was the most relaxing and unforgettable holiday ever! Great boat and broker, beautiful scenery, weather to match, delicious food and our crew went out of their way to be as helpful, friendly and flexible as possible. We felt like Royalty with the way they treated and spoilt us. We can only describe our experience as perfect! Boating Turkey Çok teþekkür ederim.
As you already know I’m really satisfied regarding everything. First of all I would underline your professional and the kindness of all the member of the base crew in Gocek. It will be my pleasure to be your testimonial and since know I’ll be sure that the next year I’ll back to Turkey and I’ll get in touch with you.
Thank you so much again.
See you soon
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
