Filed under: News — Asia Yachting Editor 2 @ 3:59 pm

   

Asia Yachting just had a successful Prestige Open Day in Boat Lagoon Marina in the sunny Phuket Thailand. The boatshow showcased a brand new Prestige 420 and a sleek Prestige 590. It’s the first time since the pandemic that Asia Yachting hosted boatshow outside Hong Kong.

The brand new Prestige 420 got quite the attention from weekend trippers who are looking to do islands hopping in Phuket. The easy-to-operate 420 comes with 2 cabins which is perfect for couple or family for a weekend getaway.

The Prestige 590 attracted families who are looking for more volume. The 61 footer comes with 3 cabin which can comfortably accommodate 6 people onboard, perfect for a family weekend getaway trip or any kind of social gatherings.

With the border restrictions more relaxed, Asia Yachting is looking to host more boatshows in southeast Asia in the coming year.

Cruising Hong Kong in Wintertime – Asia Yachting Recommended Routes

Filed under: News — Asia Yachting Editor 2 @ 5:20 pm

With an annual average of 26°C, Hong Kong’s winter has only a few days that are really cold. Winter in Hong Kong’s eastern waters experiences the Kuroshio Current flowing from northeast to southwest; this and seasonal strong winds in the northeast of the territory, make southern waters more appealing when motoryacht cruising.

Asia Yachting suggests one full-day excursion and two overnight cruising trips – all based on departure from Aberdeen, but destinations can be reached from across Hong Kong.

 

1 Full day – Southern Hong Kong Island

Particularly accessible from Aberdeen on Hong Kong Island’s ‘southside’ are nearby anchorages off the well-visited beaches of Deep Water Bay, Repulse Bay and the quieter, smaller South Bay, and Chom Hom Kok – all reachable within a 40-minute cruise.

Underway through Aberdeen Harbour you’ll notice a few live-aboard fisherfolk family houseboats.

Select the first two abovementioned bays for shore visits by tender to beachfront restaurants and cafés (Repulse Bay has more) for lunch.

After lunch, cruise to nearby Tai Tam Bay and rent a wake boat to wake surf or buzz around in and take in the dramatic rocky coastline. Operators’ boats and boards, in Stanley and in Tai Tam Tuk on Red Hill Peninsula, can be pre-booked.

Head back during ‘golden hour’, for a sundowner or two on a slow one-hour cruise back to Aberdeen.

 

2 Days (1 night) – Lantau

Asia Yachting

For an overnight adventure with creature comforts, book a one-night Yachtcation package with a secure berth, power source and a stable water supply at Lantau Yacht Club (LYC). If cruising to its Discovery Bay location direct, this takes a little over an hour, but you may want to drop anchor on the way to get some views of Green Island against a backdrop of Victoria Harbour.

This destination invites exploration of Lantau Island. Enjoy anchorages off the island’s two long picturesque south-coast sandy stretches: Pui O and Cheung Sha beaches. Both have restaurants right on the sand. Lunch and some afternoon beach fun beckons, or have lunch on board here, against a backdrop of beaches and green hills.

Head back to the LYC for dinner at its Italian restaurant and sleep in the marina.

On day two, if you are a golfer, the LYC can arrange a round at the local course, or take breakfast in one of the many nearby restaurants. Then, cruise to the old fishing village of Tai O, where a few traditional houses on stilts remain, for some sightseeing and a seafood lunch. Tai O is reachable from LYC in well under an hour, even if stopping to take in some of the beautiful coastline on the way. Or, head for Lamma Island for a walk around Yung Shue Wan, and have dinner at a Chinese- or international-cuisine restaurant; alternatively, Lamma Island’s Sok Kwu Wan is known for its string of Cantonese seafood restaurants.

From Tai O, allow 90 minutes to comfortably return to Aberdeen. From Lamma, it’s 45 minutes cruising from Yung Shue Wan, and about 20 minutes from Sok Kwu Wan.

 

2 Days (1 night) – Southernmost Islands

Enjoy nature from your motoryacht with an overnighter to the most remote islands in southern Hong Kong waters.

A comfortable cruise to Po Toi Island takes an hour, passing the popular and more secluded beaches listed in our one-day itinerary above.

Tiny, rocky Po Toi has one restaurant: Ming Kee, on the edge of a minute sandy bay and public jetty. Hike across its few small but steep hill trails for about an hour to build up an appetite before a seafood feast.

From Po Toi, head west to the two small, rocky and beach-fringed unpopulated Soko Islands and its cluster of islets, taking an hour or so at a relaxed cruising speed. Drop anchor in one of many sheltered bays and watch sundown. After breakfast the next morning, Tai A Chau island’s slopes offer great panoramas. Piers both here and at Siu A Chau island make onshore visits easy.

Finally, set course for a cruise of under 40 minutes to either Cheung Chau or Lamma Island for lunch, and then finally onto Aberdeen in the late afternoon twilight.

Around Phuket by Yacht – Asia Yachting Recommended Routes

Filed under: News — Asia Yachting Editor 2 @ 4:39 pm

Thailand’s boating hub, the southern island of Phuket – reachable by air or road (via a link to the Thai mainland by bridge) – offers plenty of choice for motoryacht or sailing-boat excursions. Asia Yachting, which has operations in Boat Lagoon Marina in Phuket, suggests a few itineraries below, from a full day exploring to one-night and two-night options in waters a little further from your starting point. While each itinerary would be accessible from all parts of Phuket, our suggestions assume a departure from Boat Lagoon Marina, or one of the nearby marinas – all in the east of the island – aboard a motoryacht.

With an expanse of dramatic scenery very closeby to the northeast of the Andaman Sea with the scores of islands around Phang Nga Bay – Koh Phi Phi, Koh Yao Noi and Koh Racha Yai being the best known – a cruise around some of this pristine picture-postcard seascape is a must.

 

1 Full day

A destination for a pleasant few hours: About 18 nautical miles away, Koh Yao Noi is within a leisurely hour or so’s ride. The narrow white sand-beach fringed, palm-tree-strewn isle can be reached faster with more throttle but our suggestion is to enjoy breakfast on board while taking in the panorama of its surrounding archipelago of islands, some with taller karst limestone centres in colours that range from grey to rusty orange-brown.

Accessible beaches are dotted around the island’s perimeter, several offering privacy.

Good snorkelling is to be had off the north of the island’s Laem Had Beach, where a few restaurants could serve as your lunch option. Kayaks can be hired for those fancy a paddle and do not have such options aboard their yacht.

A final flourish: Finish your days’ exploration with a sunset dinner at one of the few floating restaurants off the nearest island east of Phuket, Koh Maphrao – whose name translates as “Coconut Island”. Popular with domestic Thai holidaymakers, and increasingly so with overseas visitors. Wide wooden decking forms stable rafts, upon which the day’s catch – sometimes displayed live or chilled – is served at tables under open-sided pavilion roofing to diners’ preferred styles. Or enjoy the private atmosphere of dinner on an unpopulated beach on the west or south of Coconut Island or moored off one of these beaches on the deck of your yacht.

From these spots, your eastern Phuket final destination is a 10 to 15-minute cruise away.

 

2 Days (1 night)

Further afield: A one-nighter onboard allows the visitor to head for the most visually rich cruising grounds of that lie further east of Phuket. On the other side of the two islands of Koh Yao Noi and Koh Yao Yai are some of this part of southern Thailand’s most stunning island scenery, and good underwater vistas for scuba divers and snorkellers. Just west of Krabi town is the luscious bay of Railay Beach, at the foot of a 100 metre-plus monumental karst limestone sheer cliff.

This is a 25 nautical-mile trip, taking two hours at comfortable speed so arrange for breakfast onboard as you cruise there. Allow longer to arrive if anchoring on the way for water sports or snorkelling if equipment is to hand.

Two small bays around the base of the cliff-faced monolith, through coastal and jungle paths, is the entrance to Princess Cave – full of stalactites and stalagmites, well maintained and home to bats and swallows, this is worth a visit. If time allows, a couple of hours can easily be spent walking around this headland’s cluster of small beautiful beaches, now home to cafes and restaurants that include some five-star boutique resorts. Rock climbers, kayakers may be tempted to stay longer (waters are usually calm and a lagoon or two are reachable from Railay Beach).

If only staying in this vicinity for two to three hours, you may have time to visit “James Bond Island” – Khao Phing Kan – some further 25 nautical miles away and anchor off it to eat dinner and sleep onboard, then seeing local sights in the morning before heading southwest back to Phuket.

Alternatively, if spending longer in the Railay Beach area, finish your two days’ exploration with a sunset dinner very close to your final drop-off in eastern Phuket, off “Coconut Island” – see the last section of the above one-day itinerary (“A final flourish”).

 

3 Days (2 nights)

With two nights and three days, we suggest you slow down the itinerary of the two-day trip above.

So spend time visiting the beaches around Krabi (perhaps renting kayaks or paddle boards of not onboard your yacht, caves, restaurants – and possibly book yourself a spa treatment at one of the resorts in the Railay Beach and Ao Nang Beach vicinity, mooring off shore for your first night’s sleep.

Then head for “James Bond Island” – Khao Phing Kan on day 2, and then cruise to Koh Phi Phi for an onshore visit of a few hours to brows its art galleries, boutiques and get lunch there. While away some beach time and café / bar time on Phi Phi, a smaller, slightly more bohemian alternative to Phuket.

Then finish your three days’ exploration with a sunset dinner very close to your final drop-off in eastern Phuket – see the last section of the above one-day itinerary (“A final flourish”).
