What our clients say!
We where extremely happy with our week sailing from Gocek in June. And I would like to thank you for all your help with the booking and organizing of our charter. Everything was perfect, all trough the pick-up at the airport in the middle of the night, the stay at EFE-hotel (good standard and friendly staff) and the handling at the marina by the your staff. The boat was in very good shape, even with a Norwegian flag flying. Nice touch! We had a wonderful week sailing our only minor problem was that the outboard on the dinghy didn’t work.
We would very much like to come back to you for a new week of sailing next year.
Friends of ours had hired a Gullet with Boating Turkey and recommended them so our family of 5 ( 3 sons between 7 and 13) hired a Gullet for a week in early August and motored the Gocek Marmaris Gocek route. The Gullet, Remo was captained by its owner Celal and his two competent sons Cem and Erdem. Celal is a very seasoned mariner with more than 40 years at sea so we felt very safe in his Gullet. Although we did not hoist the sails we still experienced the sensation of being on a sailing boat in the open sea travelling to and from Marmaris and witnessed some spectacular sunrises.
The food was exceptional especially given the size of a galley kitchen and each day we ate very well. Celal chose idyllic locations for daily swimming and snorkelling and our boys had great fun kayaking, waterskiing and of course jumping off the boat! Some highlights on shore were visiting the ancient city of Kaunos, the rock tombs and seeing the endangered loggerhead turtles.
Boating Turkey were very easy to communicate with and quick to respond. We hope to revisit the Turkish coast and would not hesitate using Boating Turkey again.

We had a really awesome time sailing again in Turkey and will definitely be back next year!
The yacht my brother hired was very impressive – spacious, easy to sail and everything was in good working order. It was neat, very clean and the linen smelt divine! The hand-over was quick and effortless – also on return to port – all was handled very professionally. Your staff are friendly and helpful. It was a nice touch to have the mobile phone in case of emergency (which fortunately we never had to use).
Just a few small things which may further improve guests experience: -
It would have been great to have some dish sponges/ washing up cloths for washing dishes and also washing up liquid. As most of your guests come from other countries, these kind of groceries items are such a waste to purchase and not usually included in our food shop.
The pillows were quite uncomfortable – very hard. I only became use to it towards the end of the trip. ‘Softer’ feather-down type or similar would be more suitable – we had these on the yacht we hired last year from a different charter company.
Perhaps also to include swimming towels – even as an extra option to guests to pre-order/ pay for and have on the yacht on arrival.
Thank you once again for a seamless arrival and departure – and a wonderful in between. Your country is beautiful!

We had a wonderful week holidaying on board one of Boating Turkey’s gulets in September 2016. We left from Marmaris, visited Rhodes, Bozborum, a number of Turkish bays, Datca, Symi, Nisyros, Kos and disembarked at Bodrum. We found Necmi Artar very straightforward and helpful to deal with during the planning and arrival phase and it was great to be able to be so flexible in choosing our itinerary. The crew were very friendly and keen to help and Volkan was a wonderful cook and spearfisherman! We would definitely be very happy to use Boating Turkey again and Turkey remains one of our favourite places in the world. If only it was closer to New Zealand!
