What our clients say!
Your Dalaman pick-up and drop off was ready to go and Gocek was a nice little town with easy shopping and free delivery, we stayed the previous night at Gorkem Apartments which were absolutely superb with a fabulous breakfast. It was easy to both depart from and return to the marina, we sailed to the East and made a number of stops including stern tie-ups and swing anchor and mooring evenings. 14 days is essential if you want to relax and spend a couple of nights in the towns like Kalkan and Kas where we found loads of good restaurants esp Zula and Ottoman in Kalkan.
As for the sailing we all had a great time with Beaufort 2-7, the hand over was very simple and thorough, the staff were very helpful and the yacht was ready to go several hours earlier than the 16.00 hrs so we sailed out that afternoon and had our first meal at a 'jetty restaurant' a couple of hours away.
The Turkish marine regulations for sanitation and mooring in many of the bays mean beautiful clean water to swim in straight off the boat morning noon and night. The neighbouring yacht at one place told us this was, (along with New Zealand) the best place to sail. As to yourself, you answered every email quickly, sorted out any problem that arose, and when we had a gear breakage it was fixed as quickly as possible. Many thanks and we hope to come again but it is a long journey from N.Z
I discovered Boating Turkey in the internet some months ago, since I was planning to go for a blue cruise in Turkey with a group of friends, this summer.Well, it proved to be a good choice. Quick information, efficient organization. And the gulet Doruk Reis was superb! We'll never forget the marvelous week we spend on board, in July.
Our time in the Bodrum Peninsula aboard BoatingTurkey Vessel for us was definitely the high point of the year â the vessel was a new boat and we found her to be in excellent condition, with all the little facilities that make such a difference already organized. We appreciate the high level of professionalism you bring to the sailing as well, from the early arrangements to the preparation of the boat and review of the region we would be sailing in - your people did a very good job of both alerting us to local navigational concerns, and sharing their enthusiasm for the many wonderful places we visit.
We're happy to recommend you to anyone who might be considering chartering in your area, and look forward to the next time we can do it again!

This is the second year that we have organised our sailing holiday through Boating Turkey. When we were planning our holiday in 2005 we stumbled across their website and were very glad that we did so . Necmi was extremely helpful providing us with lots of options to choose from and the prices were quite reasonable. In 2005 we sailed from Bodrum and this year after discussing our options with Necmi we sailed from Dalaman.
Both times the process ran extremely smoothly. The filling in of forms took next to no time and it was very easy to transfer our deposit and final payment from a UK bank account.
The yachts were in excellent shape and the service on the ground each time was very professional and welcoming. We would definitely choose Boating Turkey again for any future sailing trips. We haven't yet planned our holidays for 2007, but rather think that we might be emailing Boating Turkey once again.
