Thailand is one of the fastest growing charter destinations in the world because it offers everything a charter could want – pristine white-sand beaches, crystal clear water, outstanding natural attractions, vibrant nightlife, delicious food, friendly people and year-round destination with splendid weather. Thailand, and Phuket especially, is a base for luxury charters that offers various activities such as snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing etc. and is a gateway to exploring the hundreds of unspoilt islands on the East coast.
The two new marinas are to be built in Phuket as part of the government’s plan to stimulate economic growth, especially in the tourism sector, by turning Thailand into a marine leisure hub in the ASEAN region, which includes Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei Darussalam, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia.
The two marinas planned for Phuket are the Asian Marina in Rassada and the Kung Bay Marina in Pa Khlok. Asian Marina is targeted at smaller yachts since the marina’s depth is only 5m. Kung Bay Marina, on the other hand, is suitable for superyachts as the marina’s depth is 8m. Construction of the Kung Bay Marina in Phuket is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2017 and should take about one year to complete. The marina development plan includes the construction of 8 new marinas in total.
