A surge in the development of marina facilities and in the number of yachts available for charter mean that Thailand is set to burst upon the international scene as the world's newest yachting playground.
UNIMAGINABLE COASTLINE & BEACHES
Over 1,000 miles of coastline bordering the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand; literally thousands of islands, countless beaches with pristine white sand, crystal waters and superb coral reefs, hidden creeks and headlands meeting the sea and mystical sea mountains. All these combine with a tropical climate to create the world's most stunning cruising waters. Welcome to Thailand ...The Thailand that independent cruising yachtsmen tell tales about on their travels... The Thailand that many have never left.
SAFE TROPICAL CLIMATE
Thailand is situated in the tropics and away from the hazardous weather zone. The country has no typhoons and even seasonal monsoons are gentle. Temperatures range from 25°C - 35°C for most of the year, and the sea rarely varies from a balmy 28°C. This means comfortable, exotic cruising all year round.
A THOUSAND PLACES TO SEE
The world-famous 'Pearl of the Andaman' - Phuket, astounds with its mysterious limestone karsts, mangrove swamps, creeks, islets and perfect beaches of Phang-nga Bay, Krabi, Ko Phi Phi and Ko Lanta. Similarly, the almost unknown and unspoiled islands off Thailand's west coast, heading towards the Myanmar border, enthral with the extraordinary Similan Islands northwest of Phuket and south to the Malaysian border.
From the favourite holiday islands Ko Samui and Ko Pha-ngan in the Western Gulf of Thailand across to the mountainous and heavily forested Ko Chang and Kut Archipelagos in the Eastern Gulf, the sheer number of destinations awaiting you within Thailand's borders is outdone only by the unbelievable variety.
