What our clients say!
Thanks a lot for all recomendations and orientating us to your cabin charter programme. As you know it was our first on board vacation experience and we spent great time on board of a nice Gulet. It went beyond all expectations, everything was excellent but most of all we enjoyed marvellous and quiscent bays of Gokova. You can definetly target us as potencial repeat clients for one of the next summers
Gulet Trip on M/S Remo
Our first experience on a Gulet we had in these last September days (2018). After an ?nternet research I contacted Mr Necmi Artar for a 5 day trip for 2 person. He proposed for 2 people a trip with the boat M/S Remo with the Captains Celal and Ismet (his son) and the younger son Emir. Today will finish our small adventure in the Gulf of Gökova Körfezi and we are really sorry.
The boat is comfortable with a big master cabin and as we are only 2 people we can put the luggage in a smaller cabin. We stopped and stayed in beautiful lonely bays with cristal clear water. Sometimes we could go on the islands to have nice walks in the pine forest. Every day Isemt and Emir cooked delicious Turkish specialities with a lot of fresh vegetables. Everything was very tasty and we discovered the variety of Turkish specialities. Celal the younger son took care of cleaning, anchoring. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The father speaks a little bit of English, enough to have some nice chat. The best months are June and September, water is still 25° warm but not many Gulets are around and you really enjoy peace and heaven. The family is really lovely and they know the best bays to stay. We could not have a better boat. We felt like honeymooners! (after 13 years of marriage)
PS: The wines we could order on the winelist were really good!

Scott will unlikely have the time to respond so I though I would respond based on what he and my daughters said to me and my experience. I was so sorry not to go as it sounded like they had a great time and Turkey looks spectacularly beautiful. I am recovering well from the back surgery (but definitely would have preferred sailing!)
I appreciated all your help with the arrangements and your promptness on getting back to me with any questions.
They found the boat to be very clean, and with all the details as specified. The depth sounder did not work on the GPS console in the cockpit, and there were some issues with the alarm setting. ( The alarm went off on the depth at 10 meters....which meant the depth sounder was in a constant alarm state(noise!) while anchoring. ). The outboard motor stopped functioning day 4 or 5 ( bad gas?) .
Overall they were very satisfied and we would use your company again.

We had an absolutely fabulous time on Pulp and Paper (Beneteau Oceanis 50)! Thank you very much for your help with everything and for recommending the boat. Despite being 5 years old, all the instruments, fittings, sail and rigging were in very good working order. We didn't have any problems at all in the 2 weeks we were on it. Despite its size, the four of us were able to sail, berth and moor the boat very easily.
Checking in was also a pleasure. The boat was ready for early check-in, as requested, so thank you for that too. Cigdem was ready and waiting for us at the boat to do the check-in paperwork, and it was fast and hassle-free. (In charters we've been on before we had to wait in charter offices for more than one hour to sort out paperwork etc. After being on a 20+ hour flight from Australia, the last thing we wanted was to stand in a hot, crowded office to do paperwork!)
So thank you again. We love sailing and cruising in Turkey. The coast is very well set up for sailing, people are friendly and welcoming and there are so many interesting places to see and things to do. We will definitely go back to see more!
