What our clients say!
Having just returned from a week on Sun-World IX we have to say it was one of the best sailing trips we have ever had. The company Boating Turkey were wonderful to deal with from the very first email from Necmi. The 4 star boat was very comfortable, well maintained and the captain and crew were excellent and waited on us hand and foot. The weather was excellent, sun shining every day and we visited some lovely bays and most of us swam every day. The water was crystal clear in most bays and although a little on the chilly side some days as it is tends to be in the Mediterranean, it was great to warm up in the sun then jump in to cool off. The chef was excellent and most of the food was typical Turkish style, made with very fresh ingredients and very tasty. The crew made a big effort to please everyone which is quite a feat in a party of 19 and also adapted meals to meet the special dietary requirements of some of our group. Although the group was large the boat was even larger and there was a cabin with ensuite for every 2 or 3 people and of course there was huge amounts of deck space to sunbathe, read or just lounge around. Some nights were warm and some people slept on the many cushions and sun beds up on deck but others found it was cool enough to sleep in their cabins with or without the air-conditioning working which was only when the generator was on. Having sailed at various places around the world on both bareboat and crewed charters over the last 32 years, we feel well qualified to say that this was a wonderful experience and we would love to sail with Boating Turkey again.
Everything went very well. The yacht Dufour 385 was in a good condition and, as I discovered, very easy to steer, also when pushing back. Gocek is always a good place to start, with a lot of restaurants in small bays nearby. Fethye is only a few hours sailing away. The one-way charter is not a bad choice, because the relatively long way from Fethye/Gocek gulf to Marmaris with less places convenient to stop has to be taken into account only once. That offers the chance to visit more places, drop the anchor in more bays, than in case one has to think about returning to the marina of origin in time.
All in all, we enjoyed the trip very much and unexpectedly, it was as warm in September as it was end of July.
This year I don't think I have a chance to sail once more, but next year at the earliest convenience, when weather condition are preferable I will

We started discussions with Necmi some 8 months before going on holiday to Turkey. After dealing with a number of other Agenices in Turkey we found that Necmi provided us with a complete overview of what we should expect. We were absolutely thrilled with the level of service provided by Boating Turkey and have to say that we returned from one of the most luxurious family holidays we have ever taken. On our first day there was a slight problem with the generator of the gullet (things that happen when out at sea) but this was all solved within two hours, we were provided with an upgrade on another Gulet that same day after Necmi arranged everything.We were absolutely grateful for this since we did not lose too much time and especially since we ended up on a nicer gulet at the expense of the agency. The crew on board were absolutely fantastic and food was delicious. I must say that Turkey is one beautiful country and we would definitely be going back to Turkey next year and would recommend anyone to book their gulet holidays with boating Turkey
The most satisfying thing about booking through you was that everything we had hoped would happen, did. Transfers, food orders, the boat, cousel on where to explore, the whole package worked beautifully. Turkey itself was beautiful, friendly people and lovely food, plus the mix of ancient and contemporary both amazed and intrigued myself and my family. Our only issue was that 1 week was not enough next year, were booking for two!
