Bodrum has a history that goes back to the 12 th century B.C. The city which was called 'Halicarnassus' was the birthplace of Herodotus; the 'Father of History' who lived in the 5th century B.C. The 'Mausoleum' of King Mausolus (350 B.C.) which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World is in this city. The only structure that survived from the Classical Era is the Amphitheatre. It is one of the oldest theatres in Anatolia with a capacity of 13.000 guests, and is still hosting many shows and concerts for the art-lovers in Bodrum. Another place that you should visit first at your arrival in Bodrum is the landmark of the city 'Castle of Saint Peter'.

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

I'd like to thank Boating Turkey and Necmi Artar in particular for a great time we've spent this September!
When we decided to rent boats I sent some requests for a two boats charter to some companies. Imagine my surprise when some hours later I’ve got reply from Necmi! He answered all my questions immediately, gave me comprehensive information of charter. Some days later our holiday was fully booked and paid for.
Skipper of one of our boat was Turkish skipper Angen Deniz. Turkey, nice weather, good wind, fantastic sea - everything was great. Angen showed us a lot of beautiful little bays which we would have no visited ourselves.
Thank you for your excellent service.
I would certainly recommend Boating Turkey and Necmi Artar to anyone who asks me about yacht charter in Turkey.
We hope to work with Boating Turkey again in the future!

Dear Necmi

We are 3 couples in our 60´s..We already had some sailing experience at the Mediterranean Sea and we planned during a whole year, a new trip , visiting new places and sailing other seas.

We had not to many information and tips for sailing the Turkish South Coast but we knew, through friends comments, is a great place.

Looking to rent a boat, I contact some brokers. After compare their offers and the way they attend our requirements, we decided to deal Boating Turkey...

Necmi tried hard to find the proper boat at a nice locations to serve our one way one week sailing plan. Great choice!! We received a very fine boat, brand new, a lot of recommendation to have a relaxed and interested sail experience and even very friendly help with the luggage we were carrying and were no useful on board.

The skipper, was very professional and very kind person.

We really enjoyed our trip.

Thank you Necmi !!
See you again...

Dear Boating Turkey

We recently completed a week long charter with your company and for the 20 of us on board it was magnificent , beyond what we had imagined. From the booking procedure through to the final day the captain and crew were fabulous. The food and the service were exceptional , the care with cleaning and meeting our needs was far above what we expected. Our captain was a man with a wonderful calm demeanour and all praises to our wonderful chef and all the staff. Without doubt we all agree it was an experience of a lifetime and we will boast of Boating Turkey Wherever we go. Thank you to all at for making this an exceptional 60th birthday celebration and the engagement of our daughter and her partner.
