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.

I wish to thank you for a wonderful sailing week. The boat, Cyclades 50.5 was in excellent condition, everything worked perfect and everything was organized without any delay. We was picked up at Dalaman airport, going directly to the marina and the checkout of the boat was done fast and proffesionell. We was all very satisfied of the service you offer and some of the crew member has already booked a boat in September. I think for sure you will see us again!
Dear Necmi and Rusen,
Thank you again for your assistance in planning our Turkish gulet trip. I highly recommend Boating Turkey for anyone considering a gulet charter trip in Turkey. When I first began reaching out to brokers, I was connected to Eastern European agencies who could not answer very basic questions about the boats or the itineraries. When I found Boating Turkey, and began to work with Necmi, I was delighted to learn that the brokerage is based in Bodrum. They are intimately involved with the local gulet business, and were extremely helpful in planning our trip. Necmi was able to provide several gulet options for our group of 16. Once we decided on the Ametist A, Necmi and Rusen were always quick to respond and helpful in making changes and additions per our needs.
Upon our arrival in Bodrum, Rusen was on the boat to greet us. He stayed for a couple of hours to make sure that everything was ready prior to our departure. We made last minute changes to catering and water toys for the week, and Rusen was happy to help with the logistics. He seemed genuinely reluctant to leave until he was assured the crew was ready to leave and we had everything we needed.
As for the boat and crew, we could not have been happier. Captain Recep was well attuned to our wishes, and constantly found beautiful, secluded and protected coves for swimming, hiking ashore, and relaxing in the peaceful surroundings. We marveled at his ability to park a beamy 27 foot boat in a 25 foot wide space at the dock. Chef Süleyman earned a round of applause at every meal. It was unreal how he could produce such varied and plentiful meals from such a small space. Basar, Ismail, and Olgun were excellent deck hands who quickly learned our likes and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. The week would not have been the same without such an outstanding crew.
Thank you again to Necmi and Rusen for helping us put together a truly wonderful vacation. We cant wait to get back!

Thank you for all your help in planning our gulet trip. You were so patient with all my questions and everything you said was accurate. We had a wonderful trip on La Finale -- a real dream come true. It is a beautiful boat and well maintained. The food was excellent, as was the service. The places we visited were beautiful. Captain Kansu inspired confidence and was very attentive to our specific interests. In addition, he was a personable companion whom we enjoyed very much. I want to come back next year!
