During August/September 2015 we enjoyed a sailing holiday in Turkey and Greece which we started planning in November 2014. Quite a few friends showed an interest and we had to find a yacht for bare boat charter which answered our specific requirements for a two week period at the right time to suit 7 couples and at the right price. I sent out several inquiries to a number of charter companies found on the internet and Necmi from Boating Turkey was prompt in responding with a number of options for us to consider. It also was the only response which fully answered all our requirements.
This was our first sail in Turkish waters, in an area we know little of and also the first time crossing international borders sailing. These, together with the idea that I am dealing with a company of which the reputation can only be gauged through previous reviews, raised many questions. Although all of these were promptly and efficiently answered by Necmi during the months long planning stage of the trip, I was still a little apprehensive about what we would encounter once we got there.
On arrival in Bodrum, we received clear directions to the marina in Turgutreis where all the formalities were handled in a very friendly, yet professional manner by SHY, allowing us to depart on an unforgettable holiday experience. Additional information on custom agents on the Greek islands were accurate, but at the same time could not match the excellent service we received from all the officials and the charter company throughout the trip. Everybody really went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and without any need to worry about anything. Any problems encountered with the boat were dealt with efficiently and we were refunded for any interim expenditure to get us going again.
Thank you Necmi, for your patience with all our questions and for organising the ideal boat! I am not sure what your involvement was with the organisation of the perfect weather we experienced, but thank you for that too! Also pass on our gratitude to Cigdem Ulu from SHY for her assistance and efforts in making sure that their services were tailored to our needs. Also to Vassilis Kapadakis from the Kalymna Yachting Club and Dimitris Kastis from Greek Yacht Services on Leros, for their assistance with moorings, supplies, custom clearance, immigration and general advice.
From the entire crew of Carmen, thank you all for making our holiday a very special experience. We certainly hope we will be able to do this again in the not too distant future.
We would like to emphasize that from arrival until departure the whole trip was extremely well organized and arranged pick up at airport, reception at hotel with room available to freshen up during our waiting time before boarding, lunch, transport to boat, were very helpulf and considerate.
The reception on boat by crew was very warm, personal and helpful. The crew explained choices for departure which were left up to us, no pressure not throughout the whole trip.
They accomodated us in any way and we can't emphasize enough how helpful and warm the crew was to us. The meals were every time a big suprise and delicious, to say nothing of the fantastic presentation!! The cleaning of the bathrooms was done at times so that it was no inconvenience to us, crew kept the boat tidy and clean. Trip was fantastic we got to see wonderful spots and we all felt sorry when we had to return. Sadly we said goodbye to the crew, but we were happy to have had such a wonderful experience for our first boat trip
We are so enthusiastic that we encouraged quite a number of friends to book this kind of trip. We are going Again in 2006 with friends from the U.S.A. who after having seen our pictures and heard the stories immediately were up for making a booking.
See you again in 2006 and thank you so much for a wonderful vacation.

Dear Necmi, Rusen and Boating Turkey
We would like to thank you for the most amazing week on board the Jasmin 1.
We had the most wonderful relaxed and stress free family holiday ever.
The sea was warm and so beautiful and we spend many happy hours swimming and
The boat was beautiful and the crew was so accommodating and friendly,
always striving to make us happy. Our captain always docked in the best
spots in the most beautiful little bays and our chef put together some
wonderful meals, including some lovely desserts. We were even spoilt with
baked cake with afternoon tea. Our captain did the barbecuing or braaing as
we know it in South Africa. He was an absolute champ at cooking on the open
fire on the deck. Burak, the third crew member assisted in all areas. He
was an absolute character and kept my family entertained. His new name
Thank you to the entire crew for making our boating week so special. A
holiday that my family will remember with very special memories for a very
