Shipping to Turkey

We purchased a boat last Fall in Turkey. The boat has been undergoing a medium refit this Winter.

As we prepare for our first real season ~6 months on the new boat we have been provisioning in the US (Seattle area) for carrying with us to Turkey in our luggage. The "usual".... Supplies, Tools, Spares, a few clothes, more of all the above...and still more. We are up to 5 or 6 suitcases between 50 and 70lbs + our two stuffed with a new autopilot and char-plotter display. it possible and practical to try to ship any/some/all of these goods as an un-accompanied (to us on the airplane) shipment. We have been planning on paying the likely $800+ in baggage charge to avoid customs issues. We would plan hiring a local (Bodrum) area broker if we did try to ship.

Any advice based on experience would be greatly welcome.
