What our clients say!
Boating Turkey organized bareboat yacht in Turkey. Our team, eleven persons were fond of Tequila, Benetau Cyclades 50,5. It was in perfect condition and check-in was professional. Some little shortages were quickly liquidated. We had rather volatile weather including sunshine and thunderstorm, but Tequila had always high level performance. Sailing first time outside EU we got all necessary information about formalities and regulations. We'd like to thank Necmi for wonderful vacation.
We initially found the Boating Turkey website just by trawling the internet but once Necmi has responded to our first enquiry, we never looked any further. He was so helpful in helping us choose a route, answering all our questions and providing advice. In fact, he gave us travel tips for Istanbul and arranged many of our transfers and recommended hotels etc. Pretty much whatever we asked for - a great add-on service. There were four couples on our Gulet (Albatross A) together with three crew members. Our cruise departed from Fethiye and ended at Marmaris. We pretty much left everything to the crew on the basis that they had done it a few times and would know what worked. We were not disappointed and had a wonderful holiday. The crew were very good at keeping a low profile on board but at the same time maintained excellent levels of service. The food is legendary and we looked forward to every meal - full board is a must. I would have no hesitation in recommending Boating Turkey to anyone.
I would just like to thank Necmi Artar and all at Boating Turkey for their honesty and integrity. We chartered and paid for our yacht in May of this year but unfortunately at the last minute, due to illness, we were unable to take our holiday. We emailed Boating Turkey and told them and also that we understood that no refund could be paid as we cancelled just two weeks before the charter date. However, Boating Turkey managed to late charter the yacht that we had originally chartered for part of the charter term and immediately emailed me to say that there would be a refund sent to the value of the late charter fee within a couple of weeks, which I duly received. They did not have to do this (as we would never have known) and I would again thank them for their honesty and also for all their prior help with arranging the holiday in the first instance. We will certainly be chartering with them in 2015!
We had a great time. Boating Turkey were very professional and helpful at both ends. Halcyon was also a good boat, albeit I reckon a lazyjack mainsail rather than vertical battens might be preferable next time. We were pleased with all the other features of the boat. We have recommended the trip to our friends here.
