What our clients say!
Friends of ours had hired a Gullet with Boating Turkey and recommended them so our family of 5 ( 3 sons between 7 and 13) hired a Gullet for a week in early August and motored the Gocek Marmaris Gocek route. The Gullet, Remo was captained by its owner Celal and his two competent sons Cem and Erdem. Celal is a very seasoned mariner with more than 40 years at sea so we felt very safe in his Gullet. Although we did not hoist the sails we still experienced the sensation of being on a sailing boat in the open sea travelling to and from Marmaris and witnessed some spectacular sunrises.
The food was exceptional especially given the size of a galley kitchen and each day we ate very well. Celal chose idyllic locations for daily swimming and snorkelling and our boys had great fun kayaking, waterskiing and of course jumping off the boat! Some highlights on shore were visiting the ancient city of Kaunos, the rock tombs and seeing the endangered loggerhead turtles.
Boating Turkey were very easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We hope to revisit the Turkish coast and would not hesitate using Boating Turkey again.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Some of us had been on a gulet before as you know but for my brother and his wife it was their first time.
They like us had a great time and even though my sister in law cannot swim, the crew were very kind and took her ashore so she could wade and bathe in the shallow waters every time we moored up in a bay. Your service was first class from the moment Deborah started dealing with you to them moment we sadly said goodbye. The crew, JJ, Abdullah and Mamet were excellent hosts and would not let us do a thing. Their little surprises for my birthday were brilliant and the food was fantastic and the boat very comfortable. I am sure that we will all be back, with more family and when we do we will be back in touch with you to book again.
I would like to tell you how delighted we were with our wonderful yachting holiday in Turkey. The service from you during the booking process was outstanding. In particular we appreciated how flexible and accommodating you were about working in with our travel dates.
Everything was exactly as you described it. The Dougie T was immaculately presented and the service was very professional. Nothing was too much trouble. A delightful touch was the welcome pack they provided.
We had a marvellous holiday and look forward to repeating it. We also thoroughly enjoyed our stays in Marmaris and Bodrum
Thank you for your help. We would be happy to recommend you.

Thank you for two wonderful weeks in Turkey. We were sailing a 38 foot Lagoon catamaran along your coast and thanks to your route tips we had a fine mix of different destinations.
Everything except check-in at the boat has been prefect. Contacts with you, transfer from/to the airport, check-out the boat and people at the destinations has all been very fine.
We can really recommend you as person, Boating Turkey as a company and Turkey as a sailing destination. We will come back!
