There is a growing number of private boat charter in Phuket to enjoy the breath-taking islands and its coastlines. When it comes to ocean-based leisure pursuits, Europe and the Caribbean rank first in the luxury yachting scenery. However, the winds have now shifted gently to Thailand, where a fascinating marine life remains comparatively unexplored, allowing boat owners and charter guests to experience the most panoramic underwater scenery and undisturbed sea life.
The islands in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea are the most stunning in the world. Yacht owners and charter companies have a wide variety of marinas and cruising destinations for incomparable boating vacations. The global wealth has shifted to the East and a number of Asian boat buyers are on the rise with international travellers taking advantage of Phuket’s main attractions. They have combined private boat charter in Phuket with some holiday villas to entice more tourists and travellers to try these out.
The seawaters of the Thai Gulf are more sheltered, and thus, they offer more peaceful and comfortable cruising conditions all year round. Skippers have a vast array of magnificent, often deserted island destinations to sail to. Thanks to the boat-friendly coastal geography, they can anchor the boats in many of the Thai Gulf’s protected bays, despite the lack of marinas. KohSamui may be a small island but it’s proud of its sophisticated facilities and services. Guests can also enjoy regular daily flights and even the country’s international hubs. The island is also famed as a boutique destination with private villas pairing with private boat charters so guests can enjoy a luxurious vacation both on land and sea.
When it comes to marine activities, the Koh Samui island can easily match the tourist spots on land with inviting options for day tours and longer cruises. The uninhabited islands of the Angthong Marine Park, which was famed by the novel ‘The Beach’, is just an hour away by motor yacht. The legendary Full Moon Party at the Koh Phangan is even closer. Scuba divers can choose to go to Koh Tao and enjoy the underwater playground with diverse marine life, towering landscapes and colourful coral reefs. Some private boat charter in Phuket can have gentle day cruises where people can swim and snorkel in many of the hidden coves.
