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”.

If you are looking for a relaxing sailing holiday in one of the most beautiful corners on this planet, then you have found the right address!

“Cataleya” the name by the way, origins from a beautiful orchid, is an 18 meters long and 7 ½ meters wide sailing catamaran, designed and built by Derek Kelsall, one in the yachting scene well known person.

We can offer you the two master cabins with queen size double bed and 2 single bunk beds plus two comfortable double bed cabins and one twin cabin with bunk beds.

All cabins offer en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water, household size electric toilets and fans.

The salon is huge; accommodating the galley with a bar. You can sit there and watch Chern our cook preparing a “Tom Yam Kung” 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.


Living The Dream

In Phuket, your 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 then 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 last, you realize that you are on holiday!

A vacation to the island in a yacht is the most enchanting experience one can have. One can hire a Yacht like Cataleya which offers the space and the comfort of a ship.

Sailing Destinations in Thailand

To the South of Phuket there is a 100 nautical mile string of inshore islands, stretching from Koh Phi Phi to the Malaysian border. They offer tranquility and many opportunities for exploring.

East and South East of Phuket Island, the fabulous Phang Nga Bay, Krabi and Phi Phi Islands, together form an area of about 500 square miles. Here you will find sheltered sailing in all seasons.

The entire area is dotted with impressive lime stone formations, honeycombed with caves and fringed by mangroves. Three major rivers plus a couple of smaller ones flow in the Phang Nga Bay.

This is very much catamaran country, one could cruise here for many months exploring creeks, rivers and drying out in the mangroves. A typical feature are the hongs, high limestone islands which have collapsed in the middle leaving a landlocked lagoon. Several of these lagoons are accessible by dinghy or kayak at low tide through caves.

Further attractions are Railey Beach, said to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and the well-known Phi Phi Islands offering impressive surroundings as well as great nightlife.

North and North West of Phuket one finds the Similan Island Group They offer the Thailand sailing trips, Thailand sailing vacation, bareboat sailing Thailand including best diving and snorkeling in Thailand.
