We have been sailing in Phuket since the late 1990's, the awesome islands and caves of Phang Nga Bay, the beautiful palmed fringed beaches and crystal waters that surround Krabi and the magical islands of the Andaman Sea ensure take home great memories of your time in Thailand.
We love sailing and the area we sail in and will do everything possible to make sure that you do too. The enthusiasm and broad experience our team brings to sailing, results in a range of services that include unique perspectives.

YachtPro differs to most sailing companies in that all our shareholders are active sailors whose stated aim is to promote sailing as a sport and to further sailing in Thailand. Our MD sails and instructs, and is not stuck in the office. He likes it that way.

We know that this choice is difficult for the new sailor as you will have little or no direct experience of the sport to base your decision on.
We encourage you to evaluate all your options and ask questions of the schools you contact to ensure they can meet your needs.
