Increasing numbers of luxury motor boats and stylish yachts have been arriving in Southeast Asia over the last few years to explore the region's stunning islands and cruising grounds. Phuket has fast has become a mecca for high-end boats with the island's three main marinas: Yacht Haven, Boat Lagoon and Royal Phuket Marina packed to the jetty during the most popular cruising months, which begin in November and last through to April.
The choices for fabulous sailing in Asia are as diverse as they are spectacular. Marine adventurers can explore the stunning coastlines and islands in the Andaman Sea off countries like Thailand
, Myanmar and beyond, while those that prefer gentle day cruises on a luxury motor yacht, Phuket
and its stunning marine scene is one of the most popular destinations to set sail from on a charter trip.
The list of salubrious vessels now offered for charter in Asian waters is enough to persuade the least experienced sea goer to climb aboard and head for the horizon in comfort. On board facilities include everything from covered dining terraces and deck jacuzzis to plush air-conditioned saloons with flat screen TVs and bars for entertaining.
Most quality craft come with a selection of marine toys so you can drop anchor in a secluded bay to mess about on the crystal waters and charter vessels come with a well trained crew including a captain that knows the best locations, activities as well as cooks and service staff to guarantee the ultimate luxury at sea.
For guests staying at one of Phuket's many private villas, chartering a luxury vessel is a wonderful way to extend the indulgence of a private holiday and actually become part of the views you admire from your pool terrace. You can enjoy a completely new perspective of the island from the ocean and after even a short sail the dots on the horizon soon become towering Limestone islands with deserted bays for swimming and snorkelling in blissful natural surroundings, far from the tourist tumult.
