Our charter from was 24/5 until 7/6 2014 from Marmaris for two weeks. We were group of ten, from Australia and New Zealand. I started to communicate with Necmi from Boating Turkey some months before the charter and found him to be most helpful from the start. Organising a trip like this for a group is disconcerting to say the least but Necmi helped to make it much easier by responding immediately to any questions I had. His helpful suggestions including wonderful Turkish wines were most welcome.
Our charter was onboard the Azra Deniz a 26 meter gulet complete with a crew of 3. She was not a five star but very comfortable in every way. The crew were sensational, the skipper, the chef and our ever smiling deckhand were always helpful and our itinerary included some of the wonderful villages, coves and historic sites of Turquoise Coast. We also has a visit to Simi in Greece which we all enjoyed. The weather was very kind to us, so there was plenty of swimming, canoeing and sunbathing, lots of time for relaxation as well. Each night we would decide on where we would go the next day and what we would do but most of the time we followed our skippers suggestions, he really ensured we has quite diverse experiences both in scenery and activities.
Our chef constantly prepared the most amazing meals, to good in fact as the waistlines slowly expanded! We were just amazed at his skills.
Our group had the most wonderful holiday, our crew certainly made a major contribution to this. The coast of Turkey is exquisite and its people are so warm and friendly and the food and wine superb.
Necmi came to meet us when we arrived on the boat in Marmaris and we appreciated that he did. He drove down from Bodrum. He really knows his bussiness and that is so important when you are organising travel plans from so far away.
Thank you so much for your help Necmi.
We all had an amazing time one one will remember for a long time to come.

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 Artar,
Thank you for your assistance in booking our catamaran.
The holidays really appeared to be very nice.
If I would like to charter a yacht again in Turkey, it goes without saying that I shall take BoatingTurkey into consideration.

I would like to thank you for organising our boating trip for our party of 8 we joined our boat for the last week of June 2013 in Fethyie and travelled to Marmaris although we spent most of the time in the Gocek Bay area. The waters were flat and calm, so much so, it is as if you are on a lake!
The food prepared by our cook was delicious and plentiful we had our wedding anniversary and a birthday on board and the staff made it special by arranging a cake! Our boat was a 21 metre gulet with 4 cabins which was extremely comfortable, each had own shower ensuite. Lovely front and back deck to laze the day away. Our 3 staff were brilliant and attentive, with Tegood always at the ready to refill our glass!
Nemci also arranged our transport from airports as well as the long trip from Bodrum to Fethyie, all went off without a hitch.
All in al,l a lovely relaxing holiday, beautiful scenery and sparkling blue waters! Would have no hesitation in recommending Necmi/Boating Turkey services.
