phuket Leisure: Yacht Haven Marina in Phuket

 Hop, Skip, Sail Away

Your yacht will assume a new sense of grandeur once she is framed by the turquoise blue of the Phuket waters, an area blessed with stunning coastlines, exotic islands and an abundance of marine life. Sailing is the best way to explore all the nooks and crannies of the region, while you revel in the scenery whilst retaining all the comforts of home. More and more people are taking advantage of the quiet waters of the Andaman Sea around Phuket to harbour their boats; making the escape from the burdens of everyday life little more than a hop, skip and sail away.

The Yacht Haven Marina in Phuket has been providing shelter for all types and sizes of yachts for over five years. It is able to house vessels from six to sixty meters in length, in one of its 158 berths. The most striking features of Yacht Haven's location are beauty and peace. Nestled in the tranquil waters of Cape Phrao, about 30 minutes north of Phuket town, Yacht Haven is sheltered from seasonal storms and rough seas all year round. The marina is just a short drive from the Phuket International Airport, making it easily accessible to boat owners who travel frequently. It is also close to world class golf courses and excellent hotels.

The list of services available is impressive. The marina manager, Mr. Andy Stephens and his staff have contacts with a wide range of reputable contractors that can provide all services for your boat, be it interior refurbishing, deck-work, electrical services or mechanical procedures. As yet there are no
haul-out facilities for antifouling or work on the hull, but absolutely everything else can be organised by Yacht Haven, including boat deliveries to other areas in the region.

Mr. Stephens can also give valuable advice to people contemplating purchasing a boat. He understands that the market can be a little overwhelming and offers his wealth of experience to aid you in the decision making process.

A short walk from the berths through the marina's tree-lined shore will bring you to The Haven, an attractive waterfront restaurant with spectacular views. The Haven has an extensive menu of European and Thai meals as well as all the pub favourites. The friendly staff is able to cater for large parties or stock your boat with food, beverages, flowers; anything your heart desires, leaving you with more time to relax and take in the surroundings.

With all the sailing activity around the area, the advantages of docking at the Yacht Haven Marina are clear. Besides the prime location and extensive services available, entry to Yacht Haven is easy for all vessels, all year round. Owners of larger boats will understand that this factor makes Yacht Haven the only marina in Phuket where they can moor and have any necessary work completed. Smaller boats may access both Phang Nga Bay and the Andaman Sea, which further increases the location's appeal. Berthing fees vary according to the size of your boat, but Mr. Stephens is proud to say that, "Yacht Haven has some of the most affordable prices in Asia.'

Mr. Graham Frost has chosen to keep his commercial yachts at the Yacht Haven Marina for a number of reasons, but most importantly, the position. Mr. Frost conducts live-aboard sea adventure trips on yachts and contributes a lot of his success to being able to access the waters of both east and west Phuket.

Scenes, serenity and service....it seems to have it all, but Mr. Stephens attributes the success of the marina to his team, saying, "Our biggest asset is our staff.' It is this pleasant, courteous group of people that ensure privacy and discretion for all clients.

In the future, the Phuket Island Marina Company intends to expand the Yacht Haven Marina complex by developing the land area and doubling the number of berths. The site will then boast elegant condominiums and a range of amenities for boat owners.

The Yacht Haven Marina can provide everything you need to keep your luxury yacht in one of the world's most beautiful places. It's worth investigation, even if just for the view.
