With the sea & docking conditions in the Med, monohulls make the most sense. In SE Asia, catamarans win hands-down!
The huge amount of cool, shaded deck space is a must-have in a tropical climate. Shallow draft means that we can sneak into places that no-one else can, exploring hongs and mangroves. It's all anchor-out here, no worries about getting dock space; so the bigger n' beamier the boat, the better!
The other decadent luxury we have on our Thailand boats is our very own onboard cook. Once you've tasted the "real" local cuisine, a Thai restaurant at home will never be the same again! We're spoiled with a feast of breakfasts & lunches all on board; in some of our more remote anchorages, it's dinner-under-the-stars on the boat too.
Our main SeaScape yacht in Phuket is "Nyami" - a 55’ catamaran. She is home for our fun shareboat (cabin charter) groups, her flexible cabin configuration making her ideal for groups of both couples and singles.
Nyami takes a max of 8 guests; but if you have a bigger group of friends / family who would like to sail together - no problem! We have other “buddy-boats” who often join us for a fun cruise-in-company group.
"Diane describes the trips as 'camping on the water' which I think is an apropos description of the travel, although this is certainly
'high end' camping."Barry R, Arizona
Built in Australia with world cruising comfort in mind, Nyami's expansive living areas and cabins make her the perfect sailing home for the tropics.
With a saloon big enough for a dance floor, and “real bed” sized cabins, she’s also ideal for mixed groups with couples and singles, or families with kids. The forward cabins are luxuriously-sized queen beds, with en suites. The two aft cabins can be set up as either 2 single beds or convert to seriously huge king-size doubles.
Onboard are two 2-person sea kayaks and plenty snorkelling gear for all. The cockpit has full hard-top coverage from those tropical rays; and when anchored or motoring, we can rig a huge suntent over the trampoline area up f'ard.
Our Thai cook, Nui, could be running a 5 star restaurant if she chose; our sailors keep threatening to steal her away home with them! She spoils us with amazing Thai, western, birthday cakes, pina coladas...everything with her inimitable Cheshire Cat smile.
Nyami also offers a shareboat ("cabin charter") option, where you can join a fun group of like-minded adventurers as a single or couple.

Even in Thailand's (usually) light airs, Amadeus' lightweight design and performance rig create some very fast n' fun sailing days!
For the real sailing enthusiasts, there's a chance to play at spinnakers when the wind conditions are right; for more lazy, cruisy days, the equally-huge sun awning over the front deck gives tons of shady space to lounge in Amadeus' trademark beanbags!
Amadeus' accommodation is all space-and-comfort cruising yacht - a surprise compared to her racy-looking exterior! Once you step inside, it is like being in a very well-fitted out apartment with all the luxuries of home - even including an expresso machine. The rose-wood floor adds a special touch of luxury and class.
In the saloon, the U-shaped dining area can fit up to 9 guests comfortably - plus there is another spacious table in the cockpit for those who prefer to dine al fresco.
Amadeus has 4 double cabins, all light, bright n' breezy, each with two hi-tech (ie quiet!) fans and plenty of opening ventilation. Three of the cabins have en suite heads; the 4th one has a large bathroom which is also accessible from the saloon (and so is shared by the crew).
