Novice crew under the watch of Utku


I've been sailing from Greece to Spain with Utku as I joined Fatuhiva on a boat transfer towards towards Denmark. Without any experience I quickly learned the sailing fundamentals in the company of Utku, an experienced Turkish skipper who's been evolving on larger yatch over the past decade. He was particularly attentive to our experience and our safety onboard, always reflecting on the best course of action whenever unexpected events surged. He's a sailor with great respect for its crew members and the owner who comissioned him for the transfer and he has sound knowledge about navigation and sea regulations. I recommend him to anybody who's looking for a person of trust.

Calm, reflective and caring captain


I had the pleasure of letting Utku captain my boat from Athens to Lisbon this fall. He showed excellent seamanship, knowledge of everything from weather systems and local regulations to sails and charts. Respected by the crew for his experience and liked for his warm heart and humour. I would love to work with Utku again, or even just meet him as a friend.
