Overview
More
Siam Sailing is an adventure sailing charter company and has a fleet of five catamaran yachts. We offer primarily bare boat, but also skippered and crewed sailing charters. Siam Sailing's sailing area is the entire west coast of Thailand and the off-lying islands. Our yachts are custom built Polynesian inspired Wharram catamarans: 1 x Hitia 24ft day sailer/camping cat for 2 pers. 2 x Tiki 30ft pocket ocean cruiser for up to 4 pers and 2 x Tiki 38ft cruising yacht for 6-7 pers. Wharrams are quick, comfortable and yet rugged. Besides brilliant for sailing in open water they are, because they can readily take the ground , ideal to explore the myriad of creeks, rivers, hidden an hidden bays which can be found all along the coast. So they can take you well off the beaten track to new and exciting places where others can't go. We have some fourteen years of sailing and charter experience in Thailand.

We chartered the Tiki 30 for 13 days. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, this is not a luxury yacht nor does it pretend to me. It's a workhorse. It's very easy to sail and its very low draught of 0,4m means that you can...More
