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!
From the initial planning stage in November 2012, right through to our departure on September 7th, 2013 Necmi the manager of the tour from Boating Turkey was superb. He communicated very well and promptly by e mail, explained everything clearly and arranged the two gulets to work together exactly as I'd asked him to. Our mini flotilla sailed like clockwork, both sets of crews friendly, helpful and great fun too. The food was out of this world and all in all everyone on our tour comprising of six Australians , two Americans and seventeen British all loved the experience, many wanting me to organise it again as our tour covered the southern Dodecanese Islands which were a beautiful experience for all.
We had a great time on the Remzi Yilmaz
Everything was exellent, the boat is splendid, Captain is a very nice man, he did some special efforts to find the best Bay's for us.
The cook did also his best to give us delicious meals, we appreciate this very much.
And we dont forget the two young people who were always friendly and helpful.
We also like to thank you and your colleagues for the perfect organisation of this trip ,and also many thanks to keep our luggages in deposit the day of departure.
So, we like to wish all of you the best for the future and lets say until next year.
Jean Pierre Van Daele and his friends
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey and Necmi in particular!
It happens very rarely when I'm completely satisfied with the services offered, but this was the case.
In the beginning of may 2008 I was getting completely annoyed with constant delays and misinformation after numerous attempts to charter a catamaran via Russian or Greek companies. It was then I found Boating Turkey website, which straight away proved to be well laid-out and informative. So I sent a request for a catamaran charter and expected to wait another week or two for a reply, the usual time for the other companies. Imagine my surprise when 3 hours later I got my reply! One week later our holiday was fully booked and paid for.
I was very pleased with this punctuality and thoughtfulness. I felt like I was talking to a friend rather than a company that's trying to sell me something. Another advantage of Boating Turkey was a very detailed contract, with no hidden costs, everything laid out clearly (apparently this happens very rarely).
Our first charter with Boating Turkey was on board Lavezzi 40 catamaran, my husband and I, accompanied by a Turkish skipper Umit. Turkey, weather, wind - everything was great. Umit showed us a lot of beautiful little places which we would have never found ourselves.
Our next charter was with a larger crew of 6 people, with a skipper named Hans. This trip was even better than the 1st, it was a perfect mix of active sailing, chilling in the little deserted bays, practicing various maneuvers on a catamaran, and discovering places of cultural interest. Hans impressed us with his complete knowledge of sailing and Turkey in particular, as well as his great sense of humor.
About us: we are a married couple in our early fifties, my husband got his RYA Dayskipper qualification last year, I completed a RYA Competent Crew course. We decided to charter a few boats first with the skipper to feel completely confident when we charter the boat for ourselves.
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey, and Necmi, Umit and Hans in particular for a great time we've spent this summer! We hope to work with Boating Turkey again in the future!
