About Charter Yacht Sailing
Elite Yachting is a specialist in bare boat and crewed yacht charters in the Andaman Sea. We operate one of Phuket's premier charter fleets of sailing yachts, including both monohulls and catamarans.
Elite Yachting was founded in 1993 by two Swiss partners under the name Elite Sail and Dive Co, and was one of the first independent boat charter operators in Phuket. Over the years the business has expanded as Phuket grew in stature as one of the world's premier cruising destinations. Today Elite Yachting operates the largest independent bare boat fleet in Phuket and also the newest, with 80% of the fleet being 2006-2011 models.
The company is now managed by Juerg Hofer, an engineer and sailing enthusiast from Switzerland, together with an international team that speaks Thai, English, German and French, hence ensuring the best responses to our customers. Our charter base is located at the Yacht Haven Marina in the northern part of Phuket Island, a convenient 15 minutes from the international airport and only two hours sailing from the stunning Phang Nga Bay. Our main office is at Boat Lagoon Marina, in the centre of Phuket Island.
We operate one of Phuket's newest and best bare boat and crewed charter fleets and act as charter agents for a selection of Thailand's best yachts. Our charter fleet features more than 25 monohull yachts and catamarans designed to fit any imaginable preference, time frame and budget. We also offer exclusive motor yachts for a dream half or full day charter to explore the islands around Phuket.
Elite Yachting is Thailand's authorised dealer for Bavaria Yachts, a range of affordable monohulls well designed for tropical sailing and charter activity, and represents Seawind Catamarans and Galeon Motor Yachts.
