Since more than 20 years we have been the only major, independent yacht charter agency in Thailand. We do not sell our own or managed boats, but only the best on the market. We know every boat and luxury yacht in our fleet first-hand. And guarantee highest standards of comfort, service and safety.

Better than booking directly with the owner?
Yes. With us you book at the same price as if you booked directly - and often even cheaper! You also enjoy the advantage of being treated like best customers (as we are) and having a good friend at your side who will represent your interests with the yacht operators. 

The cost of a crewed charter includes boat rental, fuel, crew, drinks, food, toys and cleaning. The price vary depending on the boat, the luxury class, the destination and - of course - the duration. 

Exampel prices for full-day Yacht charters:

  • Luxury Speedboat: from 700 USD
  • Sailboat / Sailing Catamaran: from 900 USD
  • Power Catamaran or Motor Yacht: from 1,500 USD
  • Superyacht (60ft and above): from 3,500 USD

All detail pages of the Yachts give you a quick price overview. The build in calculator can quote precise all costs including foods, taxi round trips, add ons and payment methods.

Absolutely! Basically, Phuket and Samui are just perfect hubs from which to explore the surrounding paradises.

If you don't do this, you're missing out on the best: the indescribable beauty of Thailand away from the hustle and bustle above and below the water, the experience of freedom and closeness to nature of tropical sailing adventures, the real Thailand with its original facets that you can only find on deserted islands.

In addition, for many, booking multi-day private yacht vacation is a welcome change from boring hotels and resorts. No 5-star accommodation can compete with the splendor of the starry sky. It is an experience of pure luxury, unforgettable and varied days that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the world.

Group tours (joined trips) are offered by some yacht companies that sell individual tickets for a yacht tour on a specific date with the aim of using the boat to its full capacity. They are ok for singles or couples without special requirements, as the tickets are of course significantly cheaper than a private charter yacht.

The question of whether a join trip or a private yacht charter is better can best be answered with a counter question: Do you prefer traveling on a crowded bus or in a luxurious private car?

However, for a certain group size or for certain requirements, it is advisable to book a private tour, as these cost the same or only slightly higher per person price, but offer significant advantages:

  • Individual service that starts with the advisory before booking and is personally tailored to you until the end of the yacht charter tour
  • Plenty of space and privacy on board
  • No strangers on board who could disturb you (or possibly offend your religious feelings) through their behavior or clothing. Only you, your familiy/friends and the crew.
  • They decide everything according to their taste - route and schedule (where they like it best, they just stay there...), food, music, activities, return
  • You can tailor everything on your private yacht to your children or older people, and at the same time you don't have to take any special features of other groups into account.
  • If one of your fellow travelers is not feeling well (e.g. seasickness), you can change the tour accordingly or return early


Yes, in many cases our charter yachts can pick you up directly from a place / beach where you are staying. This depends on many factors like tide, wind and weather conditions, and the type of rental boat.

Basically, boarding is safest and most comfortable in the harbor / pier. And usually this is the closest place to your destination. For example, if you reside on the west side of Phuket (Patong, Kamala, Mai Khao, Kata ...) and want to go to Phi Phi Islands, which is on the east side of Phuket, the boat would have to go around the island. This time would be lost for your actual trip unless you book additional travel times.

All in all this can involve significant additional costs (gasoline consumption, additional time, etc.). We are happy to clarify and indicate the options and costs individually depending on the case. 

Yes, we are happy to arrange private yacht tours to special events such as the full moon party in Koh Phangan or New Year's Eve in Patong with exceptional tour times. Everything is possible! :)

It is advisable to plan this as far in advance as possible, because the availability and flexibility of our yachts and crews is no longer fully guaranteed shortly before the dates in question.

The costs for this are calculated separately and cannot be shown as a standard in the online quotator.

Yes, this is generally possible if you have booked the yacht charter for the full day. Flexibility is limited when booking half-day tours, as the other half of the day may be booked by other guests and must start on time. But we will try to arrange your needs!

Please inform us of such plans as early as possible.

  • In some cases, yacht operators have a legal requirement for safety reasons to be back at the pier or to be at anchor (during overnight stays) at Sundown.
  • If your boarding is delayed due to your own fault, in most cases the lost time cannot be attributed to the tour as the staff is only available for the booked period and may have other commitments.

We will be happy to accommodate all your wishes within the scope of the possibilities on board, as long as they are mentioned early enough

If you have any restrictions or special requirements in your group, please let us know in good time, ideally at the time of booking your Yacht Charter. This includes:

  • Disabled or decrepit people
  • Pregnant women or infants

  • Food intolerance or other restrictions
  • Vegetarian food
  • Religious requirements (kosher, halal, vegan etc.)
  • Children's food
  • Personal preferences

  • Special wishes for drinks, entertainment, technical equipment, toys, crew etc.
  • Please note, however, that even on tours with a private chef, individual a la carte orders are not possible, but shared menus are served that can be prepared efficiently and to a high quality.
  • Please also note that any special requests/changes after booking may result in additional costs, which we would like to avoid.
  • The chance to realize your wishes shortly before boarding or during the tour are very limited.

We try to find a solution for every situation and need and prepare accordingly. But this is not possible if we do not know about it in time. The time of boarding is not the best time :)

The expansion of the mobile phone network in Thailand is very advanced and you can expect very good connections in almost all tourist destinations. This also includes larger islands with developed infrastructure such as Phi Phi Island, as well as most islands that are within a few miles of the mainland.

However, the greater the distance from the mainland, the more patchy the network coverage becomes, so that ultimately an Internet connection might be no longer possible, but only a pure GSM telephone connection or no connection at all. Depending on the location and the weather conditions, it cannot be predicted with any certainty.

Depending on the equipment, many private charter yachts offer WiFi on board, as their own mobile equipment or even satellite connection has a greater range. This is of course particularly true for our superyachts, which are designed to provide a professional working environment

However, a good, stable connection cannot always be guaranteed on the high seas. If for any reason or at any time a stable connection is essential to you, please discuss this with the captain.

Yes, you can pay by credit card using paypal. However: The payment with paypal is subject to an additional fee, we recommend alternaitve payment methods.

Sure, very gladly!

We welcome both good feedback and constructive criticism, which helps us to continually improve our service.
You are welcome to use the contact form below, which is guaranteed to be read by the management and included in the rating of our charter yachts.

Please feel free to share your experiences on TripAdvisor, Google or other portals.

In case of public criticism that could harm us, we ask you to be fair: Not every experience of your trip is our fault. For example we didn't changed the weather and the waves, created unforeseeable technical problems, chased away the fish or dirty an otherwise beautiful beach. We also cannot possibly prevent all accidental errors by the crew or cook or adequately accommodate special requests that are not made until after departure.

So - please feel free to rate how we deal with your legitimate dissatisfaction that you have previously communicated to us! :)

Private Yacht offers the optimal price/performance ratio and the largest possible discounts, which can be viewed daily on the website. Since we do never restrict quality, service or safety aspects, further individual discussions are not possible.

If you would like to delete individual components such as transport, meals, etc. to reduce the overall costs, we will be happy to answer any specific questions you may have. Please keep in mind, however, that overall packages are often calculated cheaper than the sum of all components, so reducing a package does not always have the desired savings effect.

We would be happy to make you an offer that is optimally tailored to your budget with a suitable yacht and tour.

Cancellation policy


Once we have received a deposit of at least 50% of the total price (including taxes) for the offer you have approved, we can confirm the booking.
The remaining balance is due before departure. Depending on the yacht and the program as well as the associated logistical effort, the final payment can be made no later than 7 or 14 days before departure. However, in most cases it is also possible to pay this amount in cash when boarding.


  • If it is not possible to safely complete the booked tour due to a technical problem or dangerous weather conditions (predicted by the Marine Department Thailand), we will offer you an alternative date or a full refund of all amounts paid.


The purpose of the deposit is to ensure that both parties consider the booking to be binding.
Therefore, in the event of a unilateral termination of the contract (cancellation) by the customer, a refund of the deposit is not possible in all cases. This depends in particular on the booking lead times and the possibility of compensating for the loss through new bookings:

Prime Speedboat:

  • Cancellation up to 1 month before departure: full refund *
  • Cancellation up to 3 days before departure: 25% refund *

Motor Yacht / Sailing Yacht / Power Catamaran:

  • Cancellation up to 3 months before departure: full refund *
  • Cancellation up to 1 month before departure: 25% refund *
    (less all payments for booked third-party services)

Party boat / Super Yacht:

  • A refund of payments for Party-Boat and Super Yacht rental is generally not possible, as a loss of sales cannot be compensated for within several weeks under normal conditions.
  • Payments for booked services from third-party providers**:
    • Cancellation up to 3 months before departure: full refund
    • Cancellation up to 1 month before departure: 25% refund

Travel cancellation insurance

Since extraordinary incidents of force majeure (such events include, for example, personal illness or pandemic, closure of borders or airports, war or riots, etc.) can make a cancellation unavoidable, but have the same effect as a normal cancellation, we recommend taking out travel cancellation insurance. Or check whether third-party services are covered by the cancellation insurance that is already included in your flight ticket.

Since we issue official invoices, recognition has never been a problem.


* Refunds include taxes, less any payment fees (Creditcard, Paypal etc.)
** Third-party services may include DJs, taxi, catering, decoration, etc.

The information on our website is decisive for the classification of the affected yacht.

Yes you can, e.g. with our GLAMOUR. However, be aware that the transfer time to reach there will strongly depend on the wind conditions and can easily excess 3 hrs. If you are a sailing enthusiast this is perfectly fine. If your main focus is to reach the park as quickly as possible, book a speedboat.The best way to see the park is to visit it for a multi day trip. You can then enjoy the magic and serenity aside of the usual visiting times of the many tour boats reaching there daily.

No! We don't want any frustration and communicate all prices transparently on the website or, if you have special requests, during the booking process.

With payment of the full amount, all agreed services including taxes are paid for. We attach great importance to this guarantee because many of our competitors do it completely differently - their offers seem particularly cheap at first glance and suddenly become more and more expensive when there is no turning back.

The only possible additional costs:

  • Voluntary tips for the crew (gratuities)
  • Your own expenses for dining out or renting water toys (jet skis)
  • Marine Park fees to be paid in cash directly to the park rangers. The amount varies depending on the park, but we will inform you about this on the website or during the booking process.
  • Compensation for damages in the event of negligent damage to the yacht or its furnishings.

For many of our yacht offers, Mini-Van transfers are already included in the price. You can find out about this on the yacht's detail website.

If transport is not already included, we will be happy to organize smooth transport for you. In our booking calculator you will find the appropriate options for selecting the area of your accommodation. The transport price may vary depending on the distance.

  • For maximum comfort, we always calculate with 1 minivan for a maximum of 10 people, even if theoretically these could sometimes accommodate 1-2 more people in jump seats.
  • Of course, you can also organize the transport yourself or have it carried out by your hotel. In this case, we will inform you of the exact address of the meeting point after booking.

  • Important: Please be on time. All transport is organized so that guests can be on the boat on time for departure. If you're late through your own fault, you won't only lose time on the boat, but you'll also risk your taxi driver being forced to leave because of other pick-up appointments.
    In this case, the taxi driver will bill the job as done and you will be responsible for arranging alternative transport at your own expense. Taxi drivers in Thailand usually wait a maximum of 15 minutes.
  • All transportation is organized from a single pickup point. If your group is spread out in different areas of a larger resort, please arrange a meeting point where transportation begins and where it can be reasonably split between different buses.
  • If you live in a place that is difficult to access (e.g. very steep mountain slopes), it may be too dangerous for drivers to pick you up right at your doorstep. In this case, the pickup point will be set to the nearest, safely accessible location.
