Phuket Marinas & Harbours
The islands dotted throughout the Andaman Sea are blessed with a large number of secure and pleasant anchorages and moorings. Depending on the destination you have in mind, our team at Elite Yachting will recommend the best anchorages for your cruise. Phuket itself is home to four main marinas on the protected eastern side of the island, not to mention a number of secure anchorages all around the island.
Yacht Haven Marina Phuket (Elite Yachting charter base)
Yacht Haven Marina is located on the north-east end of Phuket and is situated in a natural channel between Phuket and the mainland. At low tide the channel's minimum depth is 2.5 metres, and the marina has 158 serviced berths with single or three phase power, fuel and water, and accommodates vessels up to 60 metres in length. The marina offers all the usual marina services and is a perfect base from which to explore the Andaman Sea.
Ao Chalong, Phuket
Ao Chalong Phuket is a year-round anchorage at the south-eastern end of Phuket island. A large, shallow bay facing south and protected by an island at its entrance, it is a popular spot for visiting yachts to rest at anchor. There are a number of restaurants and marine service outlets on-shore.
Boat Lagoon Phuket
Boat Lagoon was Phuket's first marina complex and has berths for 168 boats, as well as a wide range of top facilities and services. The approach channel is quite tight and has a varying depth and width. Keeled or deep-draft vessels of up to 35 metres in length and a draft of 2.5 metres can enter on either side of high tide.
Royal Phuket Marina
Next to Boat Lagoon and sharing its approach channel is Royal Phuket Marina, a luxury marina and property development with berthing for 76 boats. This state-of-the-art development is the recipient of the Five Golden Anchor Award, and has world-class yachting facilities, restaurants, shopping and an excellent health club.
Ao Po Grand Marina Phuket
Ao Po Grand Marina is on the east coast of Phuket. This modern marina has good facilities and can be accessed regardless of the tide, with berthing for 200 boats and accommodating vessels of up to 80 metres in length.
