Thanks to Boating Turkey. We Just completed a great 5 days trip to Göcek. We are 3 (60 years schoolmates) friends. Mr Necmi was extremely helpful in planning our vacation. The Boat was Sun Odyssey 37 (JAMBOO) was middle age (2000 model) but very lovely lady. The price was very reasonable, the boat was in very good condition withot any problem during the sailing and had everything that we needed. The collection of the boat and the handling back was very easy and efficent. We were also very impressed by the attention to detail upon embarkation and disembarkation. The whole trip was excellent. We enjoy departing from Fethiye Ece marina and doing a round trip around Fethiye, Göcek Bay continuing to Ekincik My Marina. Göcek was wonderful we spend four days in Göcek and found numerous little bays to swim in and also pleasand bay side restaurants for dinner.. Thank to Boating Turkey, Mr Necmi and all the staff for making our sailing a memorable one.

We had a safe return after a very enjoyable week in Perla del Mare 2.
Just to give you a feed back of our week.
What was good:
-The Captain and the crew generally speaking.
-The food very well cooked.
-The bays chosen by the Captain, very nice and quiet.
-The outside of the Gulet.
What was not good:
-The interior of the boat did not have any renovation as you said, she was not in a good condition, quite a lot of things did not work properly.
-The lay out was different of the one that was sent, and the crew were 5 and not 6 as shown on the photographs sent to us.
We changed our destination because of weather conditions, and we ended up by staying around Gocek, but we enjoyed very very much the week.
Thank you for the organization and I hope we will go back to Turkey again.
Thank you very much for arranging our Turkish Gulet holiday in July, 2009. This was our second boating holiday with Boating Turkey, and we absolutely loved it! We chartered the Miriam Sophie, a 28 metre luxury gulet with two other families, and cruised from Marmaris, through Turkey, to Symi and Rhodes. Our captain and his family, who were the crew, were very amenable, and did everything they could to make our trip fantastic. The food was superb, you really wonder how they can whip up such great dishes on a boat! The coves and islands we visited were all gorgeous, and the highlight I think was our 3 nights in Symi, the harbour was just gorgeous, with Italian colonial architecture and brilliant cafes, then the following 2 nights were spent in little coves with the most magnificent blue water to swim in. The captain also took us to his home port in Turkey, Green Village, which was delightful.
The itinerary was very flexible, and crew happy to accommodate our choices. The boat was immaculately maintained, the cabins were large and roomy, the bathrooms were spacious and had a proper shower and toilet. There was loads of deck space both up front with sunbeds for all, and at the rear, which was enormous. We loved to sleep on deck, falling asleep with the stars at night. The captain was very skilled, we were amazed how he could manoevre such a large boat into tight spaces.
All in all, we had a brilliant experience. The booking and organization process was extremely simple, easy and smooth, and Necmi was very patient with us as we changed plans several times during the booking and departure period. The drinks etc were all pre-ordered via the net.
If you want a truly relaxing holiday, the sun and breeze in your face and not a care in the world, you can't beat this. No TV (they did actually have TV but we didn't tell the kids that) no phones, no worries.....
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
