What our clients say!
I have enjoyed renting sailboats from the Moorings for over 30 years, but I must say BOATING TURKEY was every bit as professional and provided more personal attention to my needs and questions. The boat was in excellent condition with everything as promised. Since I am getting on in age and did not know the waters, I asked for a captain to help us. His sea knowledge was exceptional and he actually became part of our sailing family and greatly enhanced our Turkish experience.
BOATING TURKEY (Mr Artar) and he would be a strong recommendation for any of our friends chartering in Turkey
Having just returned from a week on Sun-World IX we have to say it was one of the best sailing trips we have ever had. The company “Boating Turkey” were wonderful to deal with from the very first email from Necmi. The “4 star” boat was very comfortable, well maintained and the captain and crew were excellent and waited on us hand and foot. The weather was excellent, sun shining every day and we visited some lovely bays and most of us swam every day. The water was crystal clear in most bays and although a little on the chilly side some days as it is tends to be in the Mediterranean, it was great to warm up in the sun then jump in to cool off. The chef was excellent and most of the food was typical Turkish style, made with very fresh ingredients and very tasty. The crew made a big effort to please everyone which is quite a feat in a party of 19 and also adapted meals to meet the special dietary requirements of some of our group. Although the group was large the boat was even larger and there was a cabin with ensuite for every 2 or 3 people and of course there was huge amounts of deck space to sunbathe, read or just lounge around. Some nights were warm and some people slept on the many cushions and sun beds up on deck but others found it was cool enough to sleep in their cabins with or without the air-conditioning working which was only when the generator was on. Having sailed at various places around the world on both bareboat and crewed charters over the last 32 years, we feel well qualified to say that this was a wonderful experience and we would love to sail with Boating Turkey again.
I have had the intention to write this message when we are back to Norway. I had no clue about Turkish Gulets before, but after spending a week on a “Deluxe Class Gulet” in ultimate comfort, now I believe she highly deserves this classification. Many thanks to BoatingTurkey Team and the spectacular crew members on board who made our vacation memorable, stress free experience with full of generosity and friendship. Furthermore the itinerary was well thought of and the sightseeing was very impressive. Special thanks to Captain Mustafa for his kind hospitality and to invite all of us at the end of the charter to his home in the lovely village called “cilek” which means ‘strawberry’ in English.

I am writing to thank you most warmly for the superb holiday Jonathan and his guests had on the Richmond. I have heard from them that the food was delicious and the service impeccable. I understand that the captain and his crew were highly professional and at all times the party felt they were in complete safety and in competent hands. The crew was also friendly and good company. Everybody enjoyed sailing along such an extraordinarily beautiful coastline. The week was clearly an outstanding success. I am most grateful to you.
