Windwhistle is a super boat and we certainly enjoy owning her. We’re sure you will find everything you need on board but, if you have any questions or are not sure how things work, Mark and Stef are there to help with anything before you set sail or on your cruise. They run a great operation and we are delighted to have them looking after our boat and introducing clients to her.
The Turkish Coastline provides a fantastic cruising ground and there are plenty of interesting places to visit. Again, if you are not sure of the best itinerary to follow, Mark or Stef can help you with ideas depending on the time of year, weather forecasts, etc.

Jeanneau SO 45.2
We have owned our pride & joy (43′ Jeanneau JONTY) from new and in an ideal world would only keep it for our own use. But with ever increasing costs decided to let Sailinturkey put her in their small exclusive fleet two years ago. We have known Stef & Mark for many years so had every confidence in their expertise with chartering. We were a bit taken aback where they recommended we completely refit her with new sails, bedding, cutlery, pots & pans etc but having seen the result are over the moon with her, it looks and sails better than when new. As both Jane & I are RYA sailing instructors and I am a RYA racing coach we bought our yacht to sail and not as a floating hotel like many other owners.
Sun Odyssey 43 – Jonty
The new genoa has made her a much better balanced yacht and she gives you great confidence even in big winds. Having said that we have four children and grandchildren so we needed a yacht that could comfortably look after 6 to 8 people with two heads and showers and four cabins the Jeanneau 43 is large enough to cater for all but very easy to sail. Jane & I sail her on our own with no problem. We put a new 5 hp outboard on her last year which can easily take four adults ashore on the tender if required, we plan to fit a small hoist in 2009 to make lowering and recovering the engine easy for any age group. Mark has made sure everything on JONTY works properly from the Self Tacking Auto Pilot to the heads. Stef makes sure she is kept spotless, and ready to sail. Every time we go out to her we are impressed at the condition Stef & Mark have kept her in, with any little niggles sorted out very quickly.
We have sailed all over the Med and Caribbean and Marmaris Marina is certainly one of the best in the world, toilets, showers and swimming pool all kept spotless, plus numerous quality restaurants the sailing area is superb with many safe bays and marina’s only a few hours away. We have found the Turkish people friendly, honest and very accommodating, they are always on hand to help you moor up and offer advise on best restaurants etc. We and many of our friends have had some great holidays on JONTY all them have been very impressed with JONTY and Sailinturkey who have made them feel so welcome, nothing is too much trouble. It is very reassuring to know that JONTY is in such good professional caring hands and look forward to a long relationship with Sailinturkey,
