Myanmar Tourism Opens Up – Perfect for Yachting

The Myanmar tourism industry continues to develop. Last month, the Myanmar government announced that it will launch an e-visa system for people arriving to Yangon International Airport. For people looking to do some traveling in Burma, then heading to Kawthaung for a yacht charter in the Mergui, this is a big improvement. Hopefully this system will expand to other points of entry as well in the future.

For those looking for “final frontier” sailing destinations, they don’t come any better than the Mergui Archipelago of Myanmar – 800 uninhabited islands almost untouched by humans, clear blue waters and not a footprint in the sand. This truly is one of the world’s most unspoilt destinations. You can sail for days and not see another yacht, although more and more luxury yachts are making Myanmar part of their schedule.

The amazing KERI LEE III will be there in October and November this year.

If you like historic charter yachts, these two classic yachts from the 1940’s, CALISTO and MAID MARION II, are based in Phuket, and available for charters in Myanmar.


The best sailing season for Myanmar is November to April each year, so be sure to look at Boatbooking’s selection of yachts for charter in the Mergui Archipelago. Stay tuned for more yachts available for charter in Myanmar.

Kevin’s Favourites at the Singapore Yacht Show 2014

The yachting industry in Asia is bigger than ever and well on its way to booming. With ever more yacht enthusiasts looking to explore the Far East in search of something new and exciting, more of the world’s most impressive yachts are making their way east. This was abundantly evident at the recent Singapore Yacht Show last week. Whilst not yet as big as some of the yacht shows in Monaco and Antibes for example, the Singapore Yacht Show is a great place to get aboard some truly amazing yachts with many yachts offering guided tours; giving you the chance to see what super yachts are all about.


In our preview blog a couple of weeks ago, CLOUD 9 was touted as one of the potential highlights of the show. Boatbooking’s charter expert in Asia, Kevin, was lucky enough to look around her and reports that she most certainly lives up to the billing. Massive amounts of light streams into an indulgently spacious yacht whilst the garage stocks every water toy known to man.

Kevin has also been raving about KERI LEE III. The owner’s wife is an interior designer and, judging from the finish found on board, she won’t be out of pocket any time soon. Better resembling a grand mansion than a yacht, KERI LEE III is decorated impeccably with original artwork, French antiques as well as glorious marble linings and the most inviting of salons.


No expense has been spared in order to create a yacht which is quintessentially luxurious throughout. A magnificent spiral staircase connects the three stunning interior levels. The sky lounge is nothing short of jaw dropping, featuring everything that you could possibly want for the perfect day.

Dine al fresco, lounge in the sun, cool off in front of a film in the jacuzzi and then clear everything away, turn the music up and dance the night away. KERI LEE III has it all and sums up what luxury yachting is all about.
