Hi,
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,
James.

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.

In reply to James Monypenny: Why not buy a boat in the UK and sail out with a crew? Spend a year doing it why don't you? A Tilmanesque post on here should do the trick: "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.

In reply to James Monypenny: I'm impressed that your work trip to Thailand can potentially involve a couple of months deep-water soloing and sipping cocktails on a yacht. What do you do?
