Southeast Asia – The winds they are a changing

The predominant weather pattern in Southeast Asia  is the monsoon winds. Broadly speaking, the winds are southwesterlies from May to October, and northeasterlies from November to April. This leads to different ‘high seasons’ for sailing in different countries in the region, and some yachts moving destinations to follow the high seasons.


Two of our favourite yachts have just finished their charter season in Phuket and Myanmar, and are heading southeast to more almost unexplored sailing areas in Borneo, the Philippines and Indonesia.

Charter NORTHERN SUN in the Land of the Rising Sun

The world of yacht charter is growing ever bigger. Whilst the classic destinations such as the French Riviera and the Amalfi Coast are as popular as ever, there is also a massive amount of choice for adventurous charter guests looking for something further from the tried and tested old favourites. There is now huge demand for sea worthy, exploration yachts operating in the far reaching corners of the world such as NORTHERN SUN.large-Expedition-Superyacht-Charter-Northern-Sun

This beautiful 51m yacht is available for charter from the first time having spent the past 6 years exploring Myanmar, Borneo, Singapore and Malaysia amongst others. The captain and crew are thus extremely well travelled and will ensure that you won’t miss any of Asia‘s hidden treasures as part of a truly unforgettable charter.


NORTHERN SUN is much more than just an exploration vessel however. Completely refitted in 2007, her main saloon is traditionally elegant. This vast living space is comfortable and finished with great attention to detail with dark hard wood floors complimented by light furnishings. All is light by large windows which offer panoramic views in turn.


On the lower deck you will find a magnificent dining room as well as 6 spacious and inviting cabins. Tastefully decorated and well-lit to create a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.


Above deck, al fresco dining is available on the aft deck whilst the flybridge, featuring a jacuzzi is the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon soaking up the sun.
