Day 1: Fethiye
Boarding starts at 3.30 pm at Fethiye Marina. While you settle in, dinner will be served on the yacht and we will stay overnight on board in Fethiye Marina. Fethiye, which was known as Telmessos in the ancient times, was the most important city situated on Lykia's western border with Karia. It is believed that the city's name came from Apollon's son Telmessos. The city joined the Ottoman in 1924. The name changed many times over the years and was eventually named Fethiye in 1914 after the first Turkish AirForce Officer who was called Fethi Bey, crashed his plane and died here while on duty. In the south of the town you will see many famous tombs and graves survived from the Antique Era and one of the most famous and most beautiful stone tombs is the tomb of King Amyntas. The ruins of a theatre recovered during the excavation carried out by the museum recently is in the city centre.

While you are enjoying the breakfast, we will inform you about the cruise programme and safety procedures of the yacht. We will set sail for Oludeniz.

What our clients say!

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.

Boating Turkey was an excellent choice when you want to rent a gulet, bareboat or whatever you prefer on the sea. It was a first time in my life to be in the sea for days and had rent a gulet from Boating Turkey. It was an amazing experience, never forget in my life how so relax and enjoying to be in a gulet. Also it was an excellent journey i had with my friends, the Captain, Chef and a sailor/hostess. The Chef fed us like dolphins, never stop enjoying the food he prepared and freshly cooked for us. What we need to do is just relax, enjoy, eat, drink, swim and sleep….it was awesome! Thanks to Mr. Necmi, he is the perfect guy to contact for the charter and as a friend. Thank you Mr. Necmi for your kind attention and assistance!

Dear Necmi and Rusen,


Thank you again for your assistance in planning our Turkish gulet trip. I highly recommend Boating Turkey for anyone considering a gulet charter trip in Turkey. When I first began reaching out to brokers, I was connected to Eastern European agencies who could not answer very basic questions about the boats or the itineraries. When I found Boating Turkey, and began to work with Necmi, I was delighted to learn that the brokerage is based in Bodrum. They are intimately involved with the local gulet business, and were extremely helpful in planning our trip. Necmi was able to provide several gulet options for our group of 16. Once we decided on the Ametist A, Necmi and Rusen were always quick to respond and helpful in making changes and additions per our needs.

Upon our arrival in Bodrum, Rusen was on the boat to greet us. He stayed for a couple of hours to make sure that everything was ready prior to our departure. We made last minute changes to catering and water toys for the week, and Rusen was happy to help with the logistics. He seemed genuinely reluctant to leave until he was assured the crew was ready to leave and we had everything we needed.

As for the boat and crew, we could not have been happier. Captain Recep was well attuned to our wishes, and constantly found beautiful, secluded and protected coves for swimming, hiking ashore, and relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. We marveled at his ability to park a beamy 27 foot boat in a 25 foot wide space at the dock. Chef Süleyman earned a round of applause at every meal. It was unreal how he could produce such varied and plentiful meals from such a small space. Basar, Ismail, and Olgun were excellent deck hands who quickly learned our likes and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. The week would not have been the same without such an outstanding crew.

Thank you again to Necmi and Rusen for helping us put together a truly wonderful vacation. We can’t wait to get back!
