/ Renting a boat in Thailand for DWS
Does anyone have any experience with renting a boat for deep-water soloing in Thailand? What are the options and their relative costs?
The dream would be to rent a sailing yacht, and live aboard for two months; (cost being the obvious barrier) and spend the days new routing, sipping cocktails and admiring sun-sets.
I'l be out in Feb/March; when is the popular season / the weather at this time?
Any idea's regarding the practicalities and logistics for sailing the coast of Burma?
All general advise welcome!
Ta very much,
Not been, but a lot of the usual companies do yacht charter in Thailand. Assuming you can skipper the yacht yourself, you would be looking at around £20-25k + fuel for a two month charter of a 35ish foot sailing boat. Berths for maybe 6-8 people.
"Hands wanted for long voyage in small boat: no pay, no prospects, not much pleasure".
One-day, I will un-doubtably own a boat for such purposes, and when I do, I vow to post a similar message.
Fortunately though, I will be out that way for work, and thus have paid for flights.
