 Emerald Blue Invites You to Cruise

Emerald Blue, a 25 year old, 48 foot Spartman & Stevens ketch, is one of the most beautiful boats that offers private charters around Phuket.

In 1997, Nick and Marilyn Band sailed Emerald Blue across the Indian Ocean visiting numerous islands including Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Mauritius, the Comoros Islands, the Seychelles, Madagascar, Zanzibar and ports of East Africa.

"The Emerald Blue is a comfortable, not luxury, boat. She is an elegant boat and sails well. On our charters, we offer good food and the chance to explore interesting places. We try to stay away from marinas," he explained.

Nick Band is a man of the sea. He spent his early years sailing with his father off the coast of Dominica in the Caribbean. He bought his first boat, the 20 foot Vivacity, in the Seychelles and with his new wife, Marilyn, sailed to Africa.

For more than twenty years, the couple have sailed between Africa and Southeast Asia, Nick at the helm and Marilyn with pencils and paints drawing the life of the various islands and peoples they encounter. His livelihood from the sea has included running charters but also searching for sunken treasure. He was part of a team that found priceless Chinese porcelain under the water.

"I'm the happiest when at sea where the only thing that matters is what is happening at that moment, the direction of the water, the wind, the elements," comments Nick.

Emerald Blue is available for private charter. Guests can participate in the fun of sailing as much or as little as they want. Nick offers four or five day trips to Phang Nga Bay or the Similan Islands or shorter charters if requested.
