Sailing charter in Phuket - Thailand, Malaysia, Andaman Islands and Burma
Welcome sailing friends and anyone else who want to become a sailor!
We are happy to greet you on our website of our sailing catamaran “Cataleya”.
“Cataleya” the name by the way, origins from a beautiful orchid, is a 18 meters long and 7 ½ meters wide sailing catamaran, designed and built by Derek Kelsall, one in the yachting scene well known person. In 2010 we purchased the yacht and she received an extensive, professional refit, both in and outside. She now looks bright, modern and friendly. Take a look at the photos!
We can offer you the two master cabins with queen size double bed and a single bed plus three very comfortable double bed cabins. All cabins offer en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water, household size electric toilets and fans. Optional air-conditioning is also one of the main features on Cataleya.
The salon is huge accommodating the galley with a bar. You can sit there and watch Chern our cook preparing a “Tom jum gung” one of our favorite dishes. Opposite the galley is ample seating, but the best place is the seating arrangement in the cockpit area, which consists of two tables and comfortable seating for twelve guests.
In reality a sailing holiday would commence as follows:
You arrive by airplane at Phuket airport, where we pick you up and drive you to the base. In Chalong Bay our captain will meet you and brings you with the dinghy to Cataleya. You put your luggage into your cabin, get rid of the winter clothes, put on some short pants and a T-shirt. When you go to the front of the yacht and relax in one of the bean bags, you close your eyes and ask, where is the Champagne?
We raise the sails and travel in this warm wind towards the sun, anchor in a beautiful bay on a tropical island. The crew serves you exquisite local and European food freshly prepared and then at the latest you realize that you are on holiday!
Take a look around on our website, look at the pictures and especially read the guest comments!
