What our clients say!
We just returned from one of the most decadent, luxurious, and relaxing vacations we have ever taken with our family. What a lovely surprise this was as I found out about Boating Turkey online. After reading the testimonials from other clients and contacting a few of them directly to get their first hand opinions, I was convinced by their rave reviews and felt confident that the trip would be a success.
Necmi Artar, the tour manager, was a pleasure to work with. Together, we mapped out several destinations to sail to in the Gulf of Bodrum. Necmi was always a pleasure to work with. Every time I emailed him he replied immediately. I found this comforting and never felt the need to speak with Necmi by phone, or worried that some part of the trip would fall through the cracks. He answered every question I had with virtual smile on his face.
The gulet we were on was immaculate, and very spacious. We never felt overcrowded. The crew were very accommodating. In fact, part way through the trip we decided that we wanted to spend some evenings in ports that had entertainment. The captain of the ship fully accommodated our request by turning the boat around and sailing in the other direction towards Greece. We were on the sea during the day and in some fantastic ports by night.
Lastly, the food was fresh and very tasty. I would certainly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who asks me about renting a private yacht in Turkey or Greece.
Thank you to BoatingTurkey.net and Necmi for creating an amazing trip for our group of 33. Necmi coordinated logistics for two gulets and a 50 foot monohull and truly jumped through hoops to deliver a high quality, fuss-free once-in-a-lifetime trip.
The gulets were beautiful, the crew was endearing and accommodating and the meals were sensational. To coordinate such a large group and have not have to worry about the logistics truly shows how well-connected and seasoned Necmi is. We enthusiastically recommend that anyone considering a trip along the Turkish coast check in with Necmi first. He's the most patient, responsive and trustworthy expert. As he walked down the dock, all the captains tipped their hats to him. We too tip our hat to him.
Thank you Necmi for everything!

I have enjoyed renting sailboats from the Moorings for over 30 years, but I must say BOATING TURKEY was every bit as professional and provided more personal attention to my needs and questions. The boat was in excellent condition with everything as promised. Since I am getting on in age and did not know the waters, I asked for a captain to help us. His sea knowledge was exceptional and he actually became part of our sailing family and greatly enhanced our Turkish experience.
BOATING TURKEY (Mr Artar) and he would be a strong recommendation for any of our friends chartering in Turkey
