  J. Wills owners of Bavaria 44 (2008) says...

Thank you for overseeing all the work on Carmen. Particularly the upholsery, the colour is "fab" and it all looks like new. It's the first time we have come to go sailing and everything is ready down to provisions.


 Rob Landis, (2008) Captain and Marine Surveyor in Australia says…

BYS oversaw the complete repaint of Dreamtime in 2007. obtaining three independent quotations for our review and decision.  They guided us through the decision process and we ultimately settled on a lesser known brand name at half the price of the larger outfits, saving approximately 30% off of the total price as well.

Bill Davidson (2008) of the U.K. says…
I needed a new fuel tank for our mid 1980's sailboat.  Not an easy fit as the tank is built directly into the hull.  BYS arranged for the right people to quote on necessary blasting and recoating. 

 Janice O’Brian (2007) in Canada says….

Bodrum Yacht Services has gone above and beyond duty with fixing the many mishaps we have had on our beloved sailboat.  They were always pleasant, available and succinct with finding cures for our technical issues - and at reasonable prices.  We have left our yacht under their care as we know that all the work we have asked for to be done will be completed on time and within budget.

 Bodrum Yacht Services helped me deliver my sailing yacht to Greece with very short notice.  Our export and immigration paperwork was cleared in excellent time.  


Steve,(2011/2012) owner of Gulet Cosh says......

My pride and joy gulet needed some major aesthetic upgrades and systems servicing for the 2012 charter season. As a new owner I had know idea of how to proceed.

At the last minute Bodrum yacht Services organised lifting to hard stand and obtaining the services of good workman to carry out  all the necessary work from a full repaint to varnish some carpentry and a full service of the engine and all ancilerary systems. Everything was completed on time and on budget.


Ben Coppock (2013) Captain of Oyster 61 says.......

Bodrum Yacht Services really delivered on every thing from finding great accommodation for me and my crew organising extended stay visas to a superb job of completely renwewing our teak deck.

We also kept asking for more and more works to be done from really small to interior carpentry and repainting our heads. Electrical and electronic repairs and the fabricating and installing of black water tanks were all carried out efficiently and of good stsndard.

On site management and organisation by Muhammet (Dave and Dina's captain and boatyard site manager) was fantastic with nothing being a problem.
