What our clients say!
This has been our first experience of sailing the Turkish coast and after that I have to recommend Boating Turkey. The booking procedure went fine, Necmi provide us with all the information we requested, and all the process was as expected: they were waiting for us at Dalaman airport with a first class vehicle, the boat was in perfect conditions and well equipped, the people at the Marina was very professional and efficient, and the sailing experience at the Lycian coast was simply marvelous, beatiful weather, cristal clear waters, superb landscapes and very friendly people.
I strongly recommend to sail Turkey and do it with the help of Necmi at Boating Turkey
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey and Necmi in particular!
It happens very rarely when I'm completely satisfied with the services offered, but this was the case.
In the beginning of may 2008 I was getting completely annoyed with constant delays and misinformation after numerous attempts to charter a catamaran via Russian or Greek companies. It was then I found Boating Turkey website, which straight away proved to be well laid-out and informative. So I sent a request for a catamaran charter and expected to wait another week or two for a reply, the usual time for the other companies. Imagine my surprise when 3 hours later I got my reply! One week later our holiday was fully booked and paid for.
I was very pleased with this punctuality and thoughtfulness. I felt like I was talking to a friend rather than a company that's trying to sell me something. Another advantage of Boating Turkey was a very detailed contract, with no hidden costs, everything laid out clearly (apparently this happens very rarely).
Our first charter with Boating Turkey was on board Lavezzi 40 catamaran, my husband and I, accompanied by a Turkish skipper Umit. Turkey, weather, wind - everything was great. Umit showed us a lot of beautiful little places which we would have never found ourselves.
Our next charter was with a larger crew of 6 people, with a skipper named Hans. This trip was even better than the 1st, it was a perfect mix of active sailing, chilling in the little deserted bays, practicing various maneuvers on a catamaran, and discovering places of cultural interest. Hans impressed us with his complete knowledge of sailing and Turkey in particular, as well as his great sense of humor.
About us: we are a married couple in our early fifties, my husband got his RYA Dayskipper qualification last year, I completed a RYA Competent Crew course. We decided to charter a few boats first with the skipper to feel completely confident when we charter the boat for ourselves.
I'd like to thank Boating Turkey, and Necmi, Umit and Hans in particular for a great time we've spent this summer! We hope to work with Boating Turkey again in the future!

Thank you and best regards
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!
