A unique, uncrowded and stunning sailing region with blue waters, white sand beaches, friendly people, fabulous food and an incredible culture, this is the most popular sailing region in Asia.
We work closely with the Premier yacht charter operation in Phuket, Thailand – the company is owner-operated and has more than 20 years of excellent customer feedback.
WHEN TO SAIL
The most popular months are October through April when there are very few showers and constant breezes. January and February are the cooler months with the best sailing conditions. From May to September, there are more showers but still great sailing.
Phuket has an international airport, code HKT. There are no direct flights from the USA or Europe but there are hourly connections from Bangkok.
The yachts are located at Phuket Yacht Haven Marina which is just 10 to 15 minutes’ drive from the airport. There are a few accommodation facilities, a restaurant and bar, mini-mart, gymnasium and pool.
