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.
It has been a pleasure doing business right from the beginning of our contact with you.
Throughout our communication, your prompt replies to our queries, negotiation of the correct boat to charter, resolving the bank hurdles encountered, arrangements for transport transfers and readiness of the boat have all been much appreciated. Our travelling companions have complimented us on the smoothness of the entire holiday arrangement. We would like to relay this compliment to both you and your staff.
We had an awesome holiday in Turkey and were very pleased with both the appointment and performance of the Dufour 445 Lisa is a lovely boat which we enjoyed sailing. If we may make a small suggestion? A few extra cushions for the cockpit for back support and/or lounging on the deck would have been appreciated.
The service received was excellent. They were helpful and attentive to our needs. We were also very impressed by the attention to detail upon embarkation and disembarkation. You have a slick and thorough operation which gives us much confidence for future chartering in that one can be reasonably reassured that the boats are in a good sea worthy condition.
Thank you to you and your staff for making our sailing visit to Turkey a memorable one!

Our sailing holiday with Boating Turkey was brilliant!
Excellent wind, not a cloud in the sky, dark blue and warm water – sailing for a week on an excellent 43 footer was for the less as well as for the more experienced sailors in the crew was an absolutely wonderful experience!
Service by staff, the boat (in excellent condition) and everything else, it could not have been better!
We were very pleased with all your efforts about booking services and chartering services.
Not only that, even arranging transfers with shuttle and hotel booking, everything went well !
Everybody was helpfull, kind and always ready to assist us.
So if we are going again (and I don't see why not) sailing in Turkey, we will definetley do it through you.
