The Cheng I Sao, Red Pearl Of The Andaman

Named after a famous Chinese pirate of the early 19th century, Cheng I Sao is a stylish and solid ship to cruise the waters around Phuket Island.

Designed after Cheng I Sao’s sailing yachts who commanded a fleet of 300 similar vessels.

This two-masted pirate ship with a length of 34m and a width of over 8m can comfortably accommodate up to 85 passengers.

Great party boat for day trips to exotic destinations.

We had a beautiful afternoon out on the boat. We sailed around the south of Phuket and stopped by a completely empty island where everyone had a bit of snorkelling…

Your Wedding

One of the most special events of your life, can be enhanced by celebrating the event for a day or two before the ceremony on a pre-wedding cruise.

With delicious, beautifully presented and top professional catering, an extremely able team to look after you and a continually changing backdrop of stunning beauty, you can celebrate on board one of our yachts and catamarans.

Head off to where your dreams lead to one of Phuket’s many nearby palm-fringed islands and let us look after you and your party in grand, tropical style. So get ready for that special day by heading out to sea on a pre-wedding cruise before tying the knot.

Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions

Build your employees’ team spirit to the optimum by combining bonding and incentive-building activities with a day out sailing. Both onboard and onshore activities are available and the very act of sailing in itself is an excellent way of encouraging team unity.

Make the most of Phuket’s exciting and stimulating surroundings by alighting on an exotic beach at one of the many nearby sun-kissed white-sand islands to hold bonding exercises and activities and just plain have fun together in a productive way!

Make your next dynamic team-building day out a nautical one.
