Phuket Sailing charters with Dolphin Yacht Charter Phuket

This 51′ catamaran was brought new into Thai waters in 2012 and is enjoying her first season as a Thai flagged charter catamaran. With 4 spacious cabins and a generous saloon, the yacht can easily accommodate up to 8 guests in comparative comfort. What better way to explore the islands and beaches of the Thai Andaman Sea, than aboard this beautiful Sailing Catamaran.
Phuket Sailing Charters allow guests to choose between many different cruising grounds. One of the most popular destinations is the Bay of Phang Nga, particularly during the green season when the Similan Islands are subject to the northern monsoon. The bay has over 42 islands dotted throughout, many with white sandy beaches and beautiful anchorages. The bay is famous for the limestone cliffs that soar out of the ocean, and are home to the swallows that are sought after for the delicate nests that can be turned into a delicious soup.
