Why is Phuket the best place for Charters?

The Marine infrastructure is very reliable and strong and the docs here can accommodate a large variety of yachts. Other countries in the region simply don’t have the same capacity or facilities. Also, even though the infrastructure here is large, it is still growing. The Government is showing huge support and improvements are being made every day. Phuket is becoming the Yachting centre of Asia.

What are some of the improvements being made?

Residential areas and high tech offices are being built in maritime areas, allowing for easy access for locals and visitors. Expansions in onshore facilities are being made and many places of leisure are accompanying these areas such as state of the art gyms, shopping centres and club houses.

What support is the Government providing?

Aside from the Thailand Yacht show, the Thai Government is helping in other areas such as working with industry leaders to increase berthing, providing locations for new Marinas, as well as new one year charter licenses for Super Yachts. There are also other new legislations being put through in order to accommodate the industry.

Where are some of the top destinations in and around Phuket for Charters to travel?

There are many beautiful places to go such as Racha Islands, Phang Nga Bay National Park, Koh Naka Yai, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Yao Noi, Krabi, Koh Lanta and Koh Rock Islands.
