Overall a wonderful experience, and great memories. Some feed back, or rather comments on the booking and charter below. Booking was brilliant, outstanding service. On the day of embarkation a lack of communication appeared. Yachtcharterbook.com instructed us to go to base for boat collection from 12 Noon. The Charter company told us we had to wait as the company usually does not handover boats until 5 pm, there was a lot of wasted time, with purchased supplies in the Sun. The Charter company said we had an Australian Skipper, he turned out to be Russian, and the Charter company had never met him.The language issue was frustrating, and an English speaking skipper more appropriate. As such we had no real advice or recommendations as to where to go, we plotted our own course. The skipper is a great seaman, but had never been to some of our destinations, as such did not know the way around, or sea rules on mooring. We were told by other sailing people there skippers knew a lot, and had many suggestions on what to do, including restaurants, etc. This was not the skippers fault, he was a great man, but rather the booking companies, and we believe the skipper was booked only one week before departure. The boat was clean and tidy; however, the diesel gauge was always on 'full' and the effluent tank always said 75% full, therefore we never really knew how much fuel was left or state of black water capacity. Another small issue was the Anchor could have been bigger, as a couple of nights we moved while 'at Anchor' due to a wind change or increase. Putting these issues aside we will 'Sail Again', most likely with a bigger boat. What a wonderful experience. SL.

Yacht Charter in Thailand

Thailand is the uncontested leader of tourism in asia. It is the Asian tourism capital and this has been proven by the facts. Millions of tourists head towards Thailand especially in summer because of the unique features that are just native to Thailand. Thailand being a land where rice is cultivated actively as a chief crop is irrigated by many rivers and all these rivers end up at the South China Sea which washed up almost all the beached of the main land as well as the islands which are in the periphery of the Thailand. 
 
Yacht charter in Thailand is considered the best option to move around because there is very little exploration that can be done by land anyway. Thailand has been blessed with many small islands and these islands are teeming with the adventure opportunities that are too good to miss. Now there are two possibilities, either you can put your sailing skills to test and go for a sailing yacht charter in Thailand. This will spice up the adventure with the adrenaline rush that you will get while maneuvering your sailing yacht in the waters around Thailand. Secondly, if you aim for a relaxing and calm tour of the mainland and the islands then a catamaran charter in Thailand is going to be matchless. 
 
First on the list of destinations to visit after chartering a yacht in Thailand, Ko Phi Phi. It is a group of small islands a few kilometers away from the mainland Phuket. Out of all the islands, Don is the largest and has most of the resorts and tourist attractions, the rest of islands are not that developed but still they are something not worth missing. It is advisable to drop anchor at the marina of Don for the night and then to go out and explore the rest of islands in the day.
 
Second on the list is Koh Tao. It is an island which is also famous for its other popular name that is Turtle Island. It is said so because of the diverse marine life that has inhabited this place over the period of time. The extremely rich marine diversity combined with super clear water of Turtle Island makes it the region of choice for new divers to learn and even merely experience diving for the first time. People from all over the world head towards Turtle Island to get certified for diving.
 
Phang Nga Bay is also of prime importance because of many reasons. A famous Hollywood movie was shot here which played a key role in the fame of this bay. Plus the rising limestone structures give this bay a surreal look. This combination of water, beach and the towering limestone structures is something that is very rare and this has attracted many tourists to sail their yacht up to Phang Nga bay and then even spend the night there.
 
In the last but not least, Thailand is studded with natural marvels that need to be explored. Also being massively washed up by the ocean, yacht chartering is the best idea to spend an ideal vacation with your friends, family or the loved ones in Thailand.
