It was my first experience to book sailboat and go sailing without hiring a captain. I found in Internet BoatingTurkey and all my booking process was just easy and smooth, Necmi answered all my questions, made for me all appointments and when a came to Marina for boat - all papers and formalities was done, so I just walk on the boat!
Especially GREAT THANKS to people from Yelkenli in Marti Marina!! They do just great job with no headache and really do everything to keep your vacations easy and happy! There was few issues that was solved without any problems. I've met before guys from another charter companies in Italy and Croatia that tried to cheat you at the boat check out, but this is not about Yelkenli Yachting at all!! Best loyalty to the customers I ever seen! I don't even think to go sailing with another company!
Next time I'll go sailing only with BoatingTurkey for sure! Great THANKS to all of you!!
Best wishes of success for you and your company,
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!
