What our clients say!
We commenced discussions with Necmi from Boating Turkey some 9 months before our holiday in Turkey and found him to be extremely helpful in planning our yacht charter in terms of selecting the type of yacht, planning the itinerary and general information on holidaying in Turkey. We selected a luxury Gulet “ Sagapo “ from Bodrum and the experience exceeded all our expectations. From the moment we boarded the Captain and crew went out of their way to ensure we had an experience we would never forget. I can certainly recommend Boating Turkey and will use them again if ever planning a boating holiday in Turkey .

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!

We had a really awesome time sailing again in Turkey and will definitely be back next year!
The yacht my brother hired was very impressive – spacious, easy to sail and everything was in good working order. It was neat, very clean and the linen smelt divine! The hand-over was quick and effortless – also on return to port – all was handled very professionally. Your staff are friendly and helpful. It was a nice touch to have the mobile phone in case of emergency (which fortunately we never had to use).
Just a few small things which may further improve guests experience: -
It would have been great to have some dish sponges/ washing up cloths for washing dishes and also washing up liquid. As most of your guests come from other countries, these kind of groceries items are such a waste to purchase and not usually included in our food shop.
The pillows were quite uncomfortable – very hard. I only became use to it towards the end of the trip. ‘Softer’ feather-down type or similar would be more suitable – we had these on the yacht we hired last year from a different charter company.
Perhaps also to include swimming towels – even as an extra option to guests to pre-order/ pay for and have on the yacht on arrival.
Thank you once again for a seamless arrival and departure – and a wonderful in between. Your country is beautiful!

When you make an online booking with Boating Turkey you are ensuring more than a top class holiday, you are establishing contact with Necmi Artar.
So what, you might think!!
Well, not only will Necmi look after your Gulet cruising requirements, he can sort out many more of the associated things that are essential to your break, such as transfers from & to the Airport, hotel accommodations, excursions while you are shore-based, transfers from the hotel to the Bodrum marina and back again on completion of your cruise. On our behalf he even checked availability and booked us into the hotel we had found on the internet and specifically wanted to stay at!!
With service like this, it will come as no surprise to learn that the Gulet cruise through the Gulf of Gokova was brilliant. The service was great – Captain and 2 crew to look after just 9 of us – fresh food every day, plenty of cold drinks and beautiful scenery and swimming opportunities.
I can thoroughly recommend this holiday for total relaxation and enjoyment and cannot thank Necmi enough for ensuring that all worked out perfectly
