Have you ever heard of the Yacht Haven Marina in Phuket, Thailand? One thing’s for sure about this place – it’s called “haven” for a reason. With its breathtaking scenery, perfect turquoise water, magnificent coastlines, and exotic islands, this area is certain to make you wish you could stay there forever, that’s how amazing it is. Of course, sailing is the best way to explore all the beauties this place boasts, so you’ll want to have your yacht or boat anchored there. There are more and more people who choose to enjoy the quiet waters of the Andaman Sea around Phuket and recharge their batteries after all the hustle and bustle of a city they live in.
The Yacht Haven Marina has as many as 158 berths, which means there’s room for vessels from six to sixty meters in length. The marina has an amazing location about 30 minutes north of Phuket town, yet it is perfectly secluded in the tranquil waters of Cape Phrao to give you the peace you need so much. Nonetheless, it has Phuket International Airport in its vicinity, which is perfect for those boat owners who travel frequently.
Mr. Andy Stephens, the marina manager, and his staff can connect you with various reputable contractors if you need them to provide you with interior refurbishing, deck-work, electrical services, mechanical procedures, or any other service. You can even have your boat delivered to some other nearby area if needed. You just need to ask, and Yacht Haven staff will see to it that all your wishes come true. Even if you’re just thinking about buying a boat but can’t seem to make a decision, Mr. Stephens can help you with that, as well. He is well aware of how overwhelming the market can be, which, naturally, makes it more difficult for potential buyers to make a choice, so he offers his long experience to make the decision-making process much easier for those who seek help.
Not only are you sure to love a walk through the marina’s tree-lined shore, but it can also lead you to a beautiful waterfront restaurant, The Haven, where you can relax and enjoy magnificent views. Of course, you can also count on delicious food there, from European and Thai meals to all the pub favorites. You can also rely on the friendly staff to be there for you, whether you want them to stock your boat with food and beverages or you need someone to cater for a large party.
There are also so many sailing activities all around the area that make quite a good reason why you should choose to dock at the Yacht Haven Marina. Another reason is that the marina is accessible for all vessels, which is particularly good news for those who own larger boars, especially because this is the only marina in Phuket where they can moor and have any necessary work done.
As for those with smaller boats, they can access both Phang Nga Bay and the Andaman Sea. Finally, let’s not forget to mention that, according to Mr. Stephens, “Yacht Haven has some of the most affordable prices in Asia.” The prices for berthing may vary depending on the size of your boat, but it’s good to know that you don’t have to fear exorbitant costs.
Mr. Graham Frost, for instance, keeps his commercial yachts at the Yacht Haven Marina primarily because of its position. He firmly believes that being able to access the waters of east and west Phuket makes it easier for him to conduct so many successful live-aboard sea adventure trips.
According to Mr. Stephens, even though the marina boasts the amazing scenery and serenity, it wouldn’t be what it is today if it wasn’t for his team, the competent and friendly staff that takes care of the place. He says: “Our biggest asset is our staff.”
The Yacht Haven Marina is expected to be further expanded in the future; at least that’s what the Phuket Island Marina Company plans to do. They intend to develop the land area and double the number of births. Once they realize this plan, the marina will have elegant condominiums and even more amenities for those who choose it to moor there.
