How to get to your charter in Thailand

If your boat is in a coastal town like Phuket or Koh Samui, you can fly to the nearest airport and then take a taxi or private transfer to the marina or harbour where your boat is located.

Or take a bus to the nearest coastal town if you are on the mainland. You can then take a taxi or private transfer to the port.

Alternatively, take the train and then travel back to the port by taxi or private transfer.

You can also arrange a private transfer directly from your hotel or other location to the port to get to your boat.

Sailing Conditions and Climate in Thailand

Thailand offers a range of sailing conditions, with varying wind and wave strengths depending on the season and location. Here is an overview of sailing conditions in Thailand:

  • Andaman Sea: Located on the west coast of Thailand, the Andaman Sea is known for its clear blue waters, lush tropical landscape and abundant marine life. Monsoon winds prevail here from May to October, with the strongest winds in September and October. During the monsoon season, sailors should be prepared for rough seas and strong winds.
  • Gulf of Thailand: The Gulf of Thailand is located on the east coast of Thailand and is known for its sheltered waters and many island destinations. The monsoon winds are not as strong here as in the Andaman Sea, and sailing is possible all year round.
  • Chao Phraya River: The Chao Phraya River flows through central Thailand and is a popular destination for river cruises. The river is well protected and offers calm waters with little wind and waves.

It is important to note that sailing conditions in Thailand are unpredictable and can change quickly, especially during the monsoon season. Sailors should always be prepared for sudden changes in weather and sea conditions and follow local boating and sailing laws and regulations.

The climate in Thailand is tropical and hot, with three main seasons: the hot season from March to June, the rainy season from July to October and the cool season from November to February. The average temperature is about 28 °C during the day and about 25 °C at night all year round. The southern region of Thailand has higher rainfall and humidity than the northern region.

How does a cabin cruise work?

Cabin cruises offer complete comfort and luxury. With a huge variety of charters available to book, you will certainly find the ideal cruise for your time in Thailand. Many yacht types are available to book, including monohull, catamaran, and motorboat options. Monohulls are the traditional type of sailboat known for their speed and traditional sailing experience. The catamaran is becoming increasingly sought after for cabin cruises due to its spaciousness and stability. Motorboat yachts are ideal for those who want to explore the islands in style and luxury.

A cabin cruise is different to chartering a ship bareboat, as everything is organised on behalf of the cruise passengers. An itinerary with activities, beautiful destinations, and a full or half-board meal package will be planned. This means you will be offered between two and three meals a day, usually for the half-board breakfast and lunch package features. With the half-board option, cruise passengers can spend the night at one of the local restaurants in whatever port they have stopped in. Each port has many options of restaurants for you to select from.

The cabin sizes will differ depending on the type of yacht you select for your cruise. On some of our cruises, there are options to book a single or a double cabin or even sometimes a suite! No matter what cabins are offered, we assure you that travellers will find the perfect cabin at the best price.

We offer multiple ships and cruises to passengers who wish to sail here. Whether you wish to spend your days lazily cruising along the coast, relaxing on the yacht's deck, or exploring the coastline's many destinations, we have a package to suit any person! A cabin cruise is a luxury experience as it includes all the comforts on board at our price.

Our skipper and crew shall take care of the itinerary during your cruise freeing you from worry and stress as they offer you their exceptional services. A skipper will select the best route for sailing, and the other crew members remain at your disposal to take care of all the essential details (no matter how small!) onboard and in your cabins to make your trip outstanding. Booking a cabin on a sailing cruise can be a great way to meet new people and make friends while exploring the area and on the yacht's deck.

The crew will prepare food daily with traditional Thai flavours included in the full board. You will also be able to benefit from the services of the hostess regularly cleaning the common area of the cruise ship.

Enjoy the view as you cruise the sea, read a great book, or ask the crew for some sailing tips! In the skipper's free time, they will happily help you brush up on your sailing knowledge. Or rest in your air-conditioned cabins onboard the ship or in the catamaran saloon. The ship offers you plenty of space and comfort, so you can retire to your cabins anytime and have a moment away from the other passengers on the boat.

Do you already have dates in mind for your cruise? Talk to one of our expert booking advisors, who will recommend the best deals for whatever time of year you wish to sail. When you book a cruise early, there are sometimes special deals that passengers can avail of. Our booking staff can offer their services and advise on the details of our cruises using real clients' reviews and data as well as their years of industry experience to help you select the best cruise for you.

We charted with Bao as Captain and Yut as a cook. Both were excellent! Everything about the charter was great, my only comment for improvement would be to have better communication in English with the Captain in order to be able to align better on our desire to helm and crew more.

We had the most incredible trip out of Ao Po Marina with this Globe sailor partner. Our Captain jim was an incredibly talented and knowledgable sailor and guide with a passion and love of the area . Our wonderful hostess Min is possibly the greatest cook we have ever known, each meal ( one of us is also vegetarian ) was different full of flavour and top Michelin chef level.. we had the most helpful staff provide assistance in the run up to our trip and we would recommend using Fang & Fern for any trip or charter , they were professional , slick and made the whole process a pleasure .. we would like to thank Sam from Globe Sailor for all is initial patience and help in the planning and preparation , all of this ensured we had the most incredible first leg of our honeymoon

The people of the rental company are very helpful and if you want to hire a boat in thailand you dont have to look any futher. I sail in greece and kroatia but here it is much better to rent a boat!

The base in Phuket is excellent with a good restaurant and showers on site.. Location is easy access to the airport and taxis are readily available. The staff were very helpful and gave good advice on cruising locations. The Island spirit 380 that we chartered was quite tired for a 2017 boat that had some niggling issues. Having chartered a 2017 boat one would have expected everything to be prefect on board. However these issues were addressed as best as possible by the charter company. There are supermarkets within easy reach for stocking the boat before departure. Water rationing can be an issue as the only island to refill your water tanks is Phi Phi. Overall the east coast of Phuket is a fantastic cruising area and all the islands are within easy reach which made for a very enjoyable holiday. We would highly recommend it for a bareboat charter holiday but maybe go in Nov- Dec when the temperature is a little cooler. We went in April and had over 40C most days which was very hot !
