Know more about the Seatravel difference

Sail in Asia - an amazing yacht charter awaits you

Yacht charters in Malaysia and Thailand offer the opportunity to visit a host of extraordinary scenic locations and experience the rich cultural diversity of Southeast Asia. The region is full of exciting contrasts - and on a sailing holiday, you will experience both vibrant cities and primitive remote mountain villages.

  • Wonderful sailing
  • Great food
  • Friendly people
  • Breathtaking scenery and nature

A holiday aboard a sailboat in South East Asia is equivalent to a culturally diverse experience - containing hundreds of languages and dialects, and excellent local food. A sailing holiday will let you experience stunning natural diversity, including rain forests, mountains, beaches, vibrant cities and isolated villages - from a completely different perspective than a land-based journey.

The Far East is a place far from the busy and more famous sailing areas in for example the Caribbean. The isolation, the breathtaking beauty and exotic culture, is part of the appeal - and adventurous travellers will be richly rewarded when setting out to explore the wonders of this area. Majestic rocks protruding from the emerald sea, exotic flora and fauna, amazing coral reefs, secluded white sandy beaches, hidden coves and inlets, as well as hospitable and friendly locals, are just some of the attractions on a sailing holiday in the Far East.
