What our clients say!
It was my first experience to book sailboat and go sailing without hiring a captain. I found in Internet BoatingTurkey and all my booking process was just easy and smooth, Necmi answered all my questions, made for me all appointments and when a came to Marina for boat - all papers and formalities was done, so I just walk on the boat!
Especially GREAT THANKS to people from Yelkenli in Marti Marina!! They do just great job with no headache and really do everything to keep your vacations easy and happy! There was few issues that was solved without any problems. I've met before guys from another charter companies in Italy and Croatia that tried to cheat you at the boat check out, but this is not about Yelkenli Yachting at all!! Best loyalty to the customers I ever seen! I don't even think to go sailing with another company!
Next time I'll go sailing only with BoatingTurkey for sure! Great THANKS to all of you!!
Best wishes of success for you and your company,
During August/September 2015 we enjoyed a sailing holiday in Turkey and Greece which we started planning in November 2014. Quite a few friends showed an interest and we had to find a yacht for bare boat charter which answered our specific requirements for a two week period at the right time to suit 7 couples and at the right price. I sent out several inquiries to a number of charter companies found on the internet and Necmi from Boating Turkey was prompt in responding with a number of options for us to consider. It also was the only response which fully answered all our requirements.
This was our first sail in Turkish waters, in an area we know little of and also the first time crossing international borders sailing. These, together with the idea that I am dealing with a company of which the reputation can only be gauged through previous reviews, raised many questions. Although all of these were promptly and efficiently answered by Necmi during the months long planning stage of the trip, I was still a little apprehensive about what we would encounter once we got there.
On arrival in Bodrum, we received clear directions to the marina in Turgutreis where all the formalities were handled in a very friendly, yet professional manner by SHY, allowing us to depart on an unforgettable holiday experience. Additional information on custom agents on the Greek islands were accurate, but at the same time could not match the excellent service we received from all the officials and the charter company throughout the trip. Everybody really went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and without any need to worry about anything. Any problems encountered with the boat were dealt with efficiently and we were refunded for any interim expenditure to get us going again.
Thank you Necmi, for your patience with all our questions and for organising the ideal boat! I am not sure what your involvement was with the organisation of the perfect weather we experienced, but thank you for that too! Also pass on our gratitude to Cigdem Ulu from SHY for her assistance and efforts in making sure that their services were tailored to our needs. Also to Vassilis Kapadakis from the Kalymna Yachting Club and Dimitris Kastis from Greek Yacht Services on Leros, for their assistance with moorings, supplies, custom clearance, immigration and general advice.
From the entire crew of Carmen, thank you all for making our holiday a very special experience. We certainly hope we will be able to do this again in the not too distant future.
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 â 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!
