Phuket, Pearl of the Andaman

November 24, 2014

Emerald blue seas dotted with tropical islands, or luxury spas and high end dining, the reasons to visit Phuket keep building.

Phuket lies amidst hundreds of miles of coastline bordering the Andaman Sea and is literally on the doorstep of thousands of islands, countless  pristine white sand beaches, and crystal waters with superb coral reefs. All these combine with a tropical climate to create one of the world’s most stunning cruising waters.

Phuket is a great place to start a charter or to keep your own yacht. It is the gateway to the natural wonders of Phang-nga Bay where over 100 islands of diverse geology dot the warm waters and are perfect for short day cruises. For longer vacations try the white sand beaches of the Similan Islands, or take time to explore at leaisure of out of the way islands, marine parks, and beach clubs  between Phuket and Langkawi.

Phuket is also host to the Asian Superyacht Rendezvous, the Kings Cup Regatta, and other events  year round. A surge in the development of marina facilities and in the number of yachts available for charter mean that Thailand is set to burst upon the international scene as the world’s newest yachting playground.

Ashore on Phuket there are top  restaurants and swanky spas for those who want to indulge. The island has a great variety of shopping, from bustling open-air village food markets, noisy night markets, street stalls and local shops to western style department stores and upmarket specialist shops. If the outdoors are more you’re calling then try deep sea fishing, SCUBA diving coral reefs, or just hanging out on one of the many nearby beaches.

Simpson Marine has sales and service offices in Phuket and operates a fleet of Lagoon catamarans for charter as well as providing yacht care services for absentee owners. To find out more contact us

November 24, 2014

On 2 August the Simpson Marine Team organized a rendezvous that drew over 25 owners and friends aboard 6 boats. Ranging from a large RIB up to a Beneteau Oceanis 50, the diverse group of boats, and their crews, gathered for a day on the water.  

We enjoyed a trip out to Lazarus Island for an afternoon swim. There was great weather while our boats rafted up and the group had terrific fun enjoying the warm water and while they made some new friends and reacquainted with old ones.

After working up big appetites enjoying our time on the water the boats cruised in convoy over to Changi Sailing Club where we all enjoyed a BBQ and buffet spread. With a bit of help from the clubs chefs we slowly recovered from our exertions of the day.

Everyone agreed the rendezvous had met the goal for us to all share our experience and passion for yachting among a new group of friends.

After lunch, the afternoon session allowed students to get hands-on involvement with the thrill of sailing on beautiful Daya Bay. Both a Beneteau First 40.7 and an Oceanis 47 were supplied and the class gained real world experience of teamwork and their newfound knowledge in yachting on these big boats.

The ins and outs of chartering your yacht

November 23, 2014

Owning a yacht is one of the greatest experiences to be found in life and the fun of owning it shouldn’t be diminished by worries of maintaining the yacht. For many years savvy owners and dealers have known of a great way to offset the costs of ownership and eliminate the owners work involved with caring for the yacht.

螢幕快照 2014-10-30 上午11.35.53

Placing a vessel into a managed yacht charter program, like those offered by Simpson Marine, can net the owner more time to enjoy their yacht by nearly eliminating any effort and stress involved with caring for the boat. Simpson Marine will not only locate clients, but the company also becomes responsible for the upkeep of the vessel. Everything from dealer scheduled services to dingy maintenance, exterior waxing, and even placing clean towels and linens on board becomes the company’s yacht manager’s worry. Regular usage and professional maintenance will keep your investment at peak performance.

螢幕快照 2014-10-30 上午11.35.58

Up to 65% of the charter fee is returned to the owner to offset costs of the vessel. Simpson Marine advertises the boat and ensures charter parties have appropriate experience for the type of boat they are taking, and collects all the fees.

Be sure to choose a reputable and experienced charter agent to manage your yacht. Check their references and find out how many weeks per year you should expect the boat to be used.

The rest of the time, just jump aboard and enjoy your yacht to maximum fun and minimum headache.

If you want to charter a yacht for a week, or place your own yacht into a managed charter program then contact Simpson Yacht Charter in Phuket at +66 (0) 93 327 0447 or email phuket@simpsonmarine.com

Oceanis 35 – Three Exciting Versions To Choose From Day Sailor – Weekender – Cruiser

November 23, 2014

Each of the three models has been upgraded to be better equipped – more stowage, more options, more of your personality.

A chined hull, twin helm stations, vertical bow and the possibility to opt for a beachable lifting keel version complement a highly seductive interior atmosphere by Nauta Design.

The daysailor features a massive interior space for socializing, an uncluttered cockpit and a minimalist galley. This vessel boast an attractive price for new clients who want to sail fast for short periods and with minimum constraints.

螢幕快照 2014-10-30 上午11.28.40

The most adaptable version of the Oceanis 35 is the Weekender. Inside the owner configures the layout according to his desires. The owner benefits over the long term with dedicated after sales service and packs that are available from Spare Parts post purchase.

The Cruiser is available in a two or three cabin version and is equipped with numerous packs. It is a fine example of the traditional concept. The cabins are segregated allowing guests private areas to enjoy some quiet time. The large linear galley opposite the saloon accommodates up to six people.

As on the Weekender and the Daysailor, the configuration of the exterior layout is decided by the owner. The majority of modules can be ordered from Spare Parts and fitted by the agent whenever the customer wishes, even as part of the after-sales service.
