What our clients say!
I have organised my 40th birthday celebrations renting a gulet for a week with Boating Turkey. The trip was a dream come true and exceeded my expectations! From beginning to end, the trip was perfect. We were welcomed by Gursel who is the representative of Boating Turkey in Gocek who was very friendly, relaxed and helpful. This was the tone for the whole trip. The boat itself was clean, in excellent condition and more importantly, the Captain Cevat, the Chef and Hasan were amazing. They really made the trip very special: helfpul, friendly, excellent... They seemed to be attentive to our needs and respond to them in a discreet way. Everyone on the trip agreed that they were great. The food was delicious and varied. I would highly recommend this kind of trip in general, its paradise for anyone who wants to relax and discover the southern coast of Turkey and live on board. I would also highly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who wants to organise such a trip.
Thanks Necmi for a wonderful vacation in Greek and Turkish waters! Everything about our vacation was perfect and I can truly recommend Boating Turkey to anyone who wants a great gulet sailing vacation.
The crew on board was amazing, extremely professional and friendly. We really felt well taken care of throughout our vacation. Our biggest surprise was the quality of the food on board, it was superb, the chef did a wonderful job preparing delicious meals for us every day. I cannot think of anything negative to say about Necmi Artar / Boating Turkey, we will without a doubt use Boating Turkey service again for future gulet sailing vacations. Hopefully with Yacup as our captain!
During August/September 2015 we enjoyed a sailing holiday in Turkey and Greece which we started planning in November 2014. Quite a few friends showed an interest and we had to find a yacht for bare boat charter which answered our specific requirements for a two week period at the right time to suit 7 couples and at the right price. I sent out several inquiries to a number of charter companies found on the internet and Necmi from Boating Turkey was prompt in responding with a number of options for us to consider. It also was the only response which fully answered all our requirements.
This was our first sail in Turkish waters, in an area we know little of and also the first time crossing international borders sailing. These, together with the idea that I am dealing with a company of which the reputation can only be gauged through previous reviews, raised many questions. Although all of these were promptly and efficiently answered by Necmi during the months long planning stage of the trip, I was still a little apprehensive about what we would encounter once we got there.
On arrival in Bodrum, we received clear directions to the marina in Turgutreis where all the formalities were handled in a very friendly, yet professional manner by SHY, allowing us to depart on an unforgettable holiday experience. Additional information on custom agents on the Greek islands were accurate, but at the same time could not match the excellent service we received from all the officials and the charter company throughout the trip. Everybody really went out of their way to ensure we felt welcome and without any need to worry about anything. Any problems encountered with the boat were dealt with efficiently and we were refunded for any interim expenditure to get us going again.
Thank you Necmi, for your patience with all our questions and for organising the ideal boat! I am not sure what your involvement was with the organisation of the perfect weather we experienced, but thank you for that too! Also pass on our gratitude to Cigdem Ulu from SHY for her assistance and efforts in making sure that their services were tailored to our needs. Also to Vassilis Kapadakis from the Kalymna Yachting Club and Dimitris Kastis from Greek Yacht Services on Leros, for their assistance with moorings, supplies, custom clearance, immigration and general advice.
From the entire crew of Carmen, thank you all for making our holiday a very special experience. We certainly hope we will be able to do this again in the not too distant future.
I am also very satisfied with this years charter aswell.
- The transfer service to and from Dalaman was comfortable and on time.
- Your staff in Marmaris was friendly and helpful.
- The Gulet was very comfortable and of high class.
- The crew, all four of them,were very friendly,service oriented and helpful. Especially I would like to mention the captain, who communicated very well about alternative routs and destinations.We felt all the time updated. Also the cook, who prepared excellent food all week, and also cooked alternative food for one of our party with an allergy.
We are very happy with the arrangement again, and will not hesitate to come back
and recommend you to our friends.
