This was the first time we had chartered in Turkey. A friend had referred us to Boating Turkey. The experience exceeded our expectations. Transfers went smoothly, the boat was beautiful, well prepared and ready, the staff were patient and welcoming. Our dealings had a sense of transparency and honesty. And, of course, the Med was stunning. I have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey and SK Yachting in particular.
Boating Turkey Review - September/October 2015
From my very first contact with Necmi at Boating Turkey a year before our trip, I had confidence in what to expect due to his prompt and professional dealings via email to me in New Zealand. Necmi assisted us with both the ideal Gulet and itinerary for our group of 8 adults and 3 children all within our required budget.
The Gulet La Finale was a lovely, large boat that met the needs of everyone in our group - activities for the kids, spaces for relaxation and social gatherings and areas for those needing to do business. The crew of 4 ably led by their captain were wonderful - all professional, yet friendly and joined in with our activities when invited to do so. We felt like they were there to please us, at times seeming to go beyond what was required of them. They included us in decisions about where to moor overnight and when to stop off or move on and were also accommodating with things like wi-fi and air conditioning. They also recommended places to visit on shore and used the tender to transfer us to land. The food was excellent and varied. We chose for Boating Turkey to purchase drinks on our behalf and this worked well and was a reasonable option. The 6 cabins included 2 master cabins and 4 en-suites - at times they were too hot for sleeping so some of our group slept under the stars. We all agreed that 7 days was not quite long enough! We plan to do a similar trip again in the future and would use Boating Turkey to assist without hesitation. Thank you to all that ensured we had a wonderful experience cruising
Thank you Necmi. We are now back home in Australia. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of myself and friends for the holiday of a life time upon you Gulet. The service provided by the Captain and cook assigned to our boat was faultless In particular the food provided, The places we were taken,The beautifull coves and harbours and the information provided by the Captain. We have no hesitation in saying your companys professional approach,service and happy staff will always make our holliday to this particular part of Turkey a life time memory.
Hope to see you all again some day
Boating Turkey's services were without fault. Everything promised was delivered and your responses to our various questions were prompt and accurate. I can say without a moments hesitation that we had a great experience in Turkey. The turkish coast is truly amazing and the boat and the various marina facilities were perfect. The turkish people at the various ports visited were friendly and very helpful. Our only complaint is the food is way too delicious and we couldn't stop eating.
Thank you Necmi for all your assistance in creating this great excursion.
