Cracking Deals in Exotic Paradise

The tried and tested charter destinations in Europe; the Amalfi Coast, Ibiza, and the French Riviera to name but a few, are as popular and magnificent as ever. For those of you looking to get off the beaten path however, look no further than Thailand. Full-moon parties still attract young travellers in their hundreds but away from Kho Phangan, you’ll find untouched, white sandy beaches and blissful tranquillity.


Some of you will have read about political unrest, but rest assured, the nation has returned once more to being a peaceful, paradise in the Andaman Sea. Even during the coup, tourist hot spots remained popular and unaffected as flights and charters all went ahead as normal. Now the coup is over, there is no further unrest and travellers should have no hesitation in visiting this stunning country.


Although relatively new to the world of yachting, the charter market in Thailand has stunning boats on offer. With special offers in Phuket including free days on bareboat charters, and superb discounts on Azimuts and Ferrettis, there has never been a better time to charter.


With brilliant sunshine guaranteed year-round in Thailand, the Ferretti 680 is a terrific charter yacht. The aft deck is a wonderful place to dine al fresco while enjoying the cool sea breeze. For lazy afternoons working on your tan, there are large sunpads both on the forward deck and on the flybridge.



Below deck she is spacious and comfortable. Traditionally styled and with large windows, the saloon is the perfect place to spread out in the evenings and watch a film before retiring to the large, well-appointed cabins. This Ferretti can also accommodate up to 24 guests for day charters, so feel free to spoil your friends and family alike.

Spanish sundowners last night provided excellent refreshment on a beautiful evening in Port Vauban, Antibes. The boat itself feels large beyond its size with huge outside space at the rear, flybridge and dining on the bow. She’s highly specced with beautiful tan leather upholsteries outside, sumptuous tweed soft furnishings in the cabins and a full-beam master suite which offers space otherwise never found on yachts of this size.

Palm Beach International Boat Show 2014!

With more than $1 billion worth of yachts water toys on show, the 29th Palm Beach International Boat Show is the place to be for yacht enthusiasts this March. Allison, one of the newest members of the Boatbookings team and a senior charter broker, specialising in American charters, will certainly not be missing out. She is particularly excited about seeing some of her favourite yachts taking stage amongst the worlds’ finest example of yacht building.


VIVEREa stunning Azimut 116 will certainly be turning heads. Designed in Italy, with beautiful lines and a striking blue hull, she really is wonderfully elegant.

From the first glance, you will find that her interior is similarly impressive. Indulgently furnished with rich mahogany and plush sofas, the salon is refined and luxurious. With natural light streaming in through large windows to create a light and airy atmosphere, this is a wonderfully relaxing space to relax and get away from it all.

Above deck you are spoilt for choice. With plenty of areas to relax and soak up some rays, as well as a jacuzzi and drinks bar, each of your guests can settle down in their favourite spot and enjoy an unforgettable charter off the coast of Florida.

Toys and water sports are of course a highlight on any charter and some of the newest and coolest technology is to be found in Florida this week. Not the least of these will be the Quadski. Featured just a couple of weeks ago in Top Gear when Jeremy Clarkson raced against Richard Hammond’s Alfa Romeo 4C, this revolutionary transforming quad bike / jet ski will be sure to draw a crowd.


Allison has also been impressed by the breath-taking KATYA. With such an embarrassment of luxury available on board, it’s no hard to understand why. Spread over 4 decks and lavishly finished throughout, once you step aboard you will never want to leave.

Feel like James Bond as you sip a martini in the classically cool sky lounge bar or enjoy a relaxing evening with a film in the supremely comfortable salon.

Above deck admire the beautiful Caribbean sea around the Bahamas while you dine al fresco in one of a number of spots or feel like a rock star while you sun yourself in the jacuzzi. The choices are endless and you would be doing well to discover all of KATYA‘s treasures in a week.
