Sailing Award

Phuket Wins Asian Sailing Honour

Phuket is the region's best sailing destination Phuket Wins Asian Sailing Honour Phuket Island Sailing Award
Phuket is the region's best sailing destination. In a gala event in Hong Kong, Phuket was named the Asian Marine Capital of the Year in the Asia Boating Awards. Anyone who has ever been to see the natural wonders of the island and its surrounds aboard a yacht charter in Phuket would definately agree with the honour bestowed on Phuket. Phuket and surrounding waters are certainly in a league of there own.

Phuket is set apart by its extensive variety of places to visit offering to sailors a vast region to explore - whether you're a recent arrival, renting a charter yacht or catamaran, or an old salt, there's always something new to find. Phuket's countless exotic tropical beaches and bays, from the nearby Racha Island to the more remote Similans and beyond to the virtually untouched Andaman Islands some 450NM to the west make it a must to visit. The unusual karsts in Phang Nga Bay a easy sail off Phuket's east coast, are a towering scenic marvel that have sparked the imaginations of many a movie maker.

Phuket Beach The island's culture and history are equally interesting. Explorers have been sailing here for hundreds, even thousands, of years in search of fortune or a better life, from the Burmese invaders who were fended off by Phuket Island (then called Jung Ceylon) natives in 1785 to the Europeans and Chinese who flocked here in the 1800s tin mining heydays, to today's Hollywood stars seeking rest and a respite from the glare of paparazzi cameras. The island is host to a good number of round the world sailors who, after a lifetime of sea exploration, simply dropped anchor in Phuket and never leave. Glance out across the Andaman Sea and you'll see every kind of yacht imaginable, from traditional wood long-tail boats to technicolor fishing boats to catamarans to superyachts. Life can be as simple or as luxurious as you wish – that's all part of Phuket's attraction.

Phuket's modern and high-class offerings give yacht enthusiasts everything they need both on and off shore. Its International-class marinas are chock full of services that cater to those who love life and the sea. Get everything you need from a yacht repair and refit to a five-star meal to a foot massage, all within a short distance from your mooring or marina berth.
