My brother, a Cathay Pacific airline captain, lives in Thailand and owns the beautiful yacht Shangani and Villa Sanyanga. i live in Spain and France, and handle the charters and rentals for him.
I also let a beautiful penthouse apartment near Bangtao beach, belonging to another Cathay Pacific pilot.
Thailand is a beautiful country, and the cruising area off Phuket is some of the best yacht cruising in the world, so much variety - from stunning limestone outcrops and hidden lagoons, to deserted beaches and tropical islands - it will give you memories for a lifetime.
Shangani is unique, in that it is a catamaran, so it is stable and comfortable, with plenty of space for large groups. Perfect for wedding or birthday celebrations, or stag or hen parties. Suitable for people with no boating experience. Great for families with children.
“Super memorable trip!”

We decided to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary by chartering the Shangani for a private cruise around Krabi. We were onboard with our 8 year old son and another family which consisted on his godparents and their three kids, the youngest of which was less than a year old. We were all rather concerned initially due to the age and number of children on board, even going so far as to bring a nanny along....but we needn't have bothered at all! The service staff of 7 were so attentive that our kids had the ball of their lives, being treated like absolute royalty! And the chef deserves a special mention - he fed us as if we were at a 5 star hotel instead of operating out of a small kitchen in a yacht with lamb chops, chicken burgers, seafood marinara and even special meals for the kids! They were so generous with the drink allocation that there was no way we could finish 5 litres of wine and 60 cans of beer between us few adults.
For our anniversary dinner, they set up table at a private beach, complete with floating platform and bonfire with a tree swing that the kids really enjoyed. The food was out of this world - huge grilled tiger prawns, salt baked fish, char grilled squid, salads and roasted potatoes etc - plus a complimentary bottle of Chardonnay and anniversary congratulatory card from the yacht owner and crew personally! The views around Krabi were spectacular but what made the entire trip so memorable were their staff - they even had a Thai masseur on board who gave everyone a good rub every day!
The deck hands were always accomodating and helpful, ferrying us between the yacht and various islands and keeping a watchful eye on us whenever we were kayaking or out on the open deck. Once when our two guys took a tumble off their first attempt at the kayak, the deckhands were off in the motor dingy and to the rescue before we could even say a word!
The best compliment on this holiday comes from my son - he asked me at the airport before boarding our return flight when we are going back again! We will definitely be back to indulge in the service of the Shangani crew! Thank you for everything!

This is a truly fabulous boat, amazing staff and a wonderful holiday destination. We rented for 5 nights to the Similan Islands and there really can't be any better way to relax and see this beautiful place. The staff were amazingly helpful, caring and kind -- catering to all needs, including those of 2 energetic young kids. Great rooms, amazing food every meal from the chef, relaxing thai massage and just a perfect holiday.
Everything was perfect! There was a little snafu with children's menu but crew got right on it and made it perfect! This was a birthday present for my husband and and exclaimed it was the best birthday ever and it truly was. The boat is huge and fits many people. Very kid friendly with children's life boats etc. So much to do with the kayaks, floater thingy's, amazing stereo system and let's not forget the jacuzzi. The staff on hand was friendly and very competent, especially the hostess with her amazing cocktails! They leave nothing to detail and all the details are spot on. I could go on and on, basically if you're thinking of doing this, do it! Worth every single penny:)
We had a fantastic day out on Shangani. When we first emailed an enquiry, we were delighted to find out that this was the largest capacity yacht available in Phuket. The planning for 50 guests to be taken out on a pre-wedding day excursion was made so easy by Richard, the owner, who responded quickly and enthusiastically to all my emails and calls, there really wasn’t a lot for me to arrange. This pre departure communication efficiency shouldn’t be underestimated; the stress normally involved in arranging trips from overseas was non-existent, the suggested itineraries were a great help, the booking process just so easy and then we were kept regularly up to date and teased with anticipation of the day out.
The 5 minibuses that were arranged for us whisked us away on time for the short trip to Ao Po marina, where we were greeted by the owner. There was even a ‘happy pre-wedding day’ sign for us on the side of Shangani – brilliant for photos!
The crew were fabulous; welcoming, helpful, skilled, safety conscious, they were lovely people who provided for our every need throughout the day.
Our guests had travelled a long way for our wedding and for some of them this was a once in a lifetime trip, so we wanted to spoil them with a trip out on the yacht – it was a perfect day and one that we will all remember forever (with slight alcohol haziness!). We honestly had a truly amazing fun filled day and we sincerely thank Richard and the crew for all their help.
We’ll definitely be back and would have no hesitation in highly recommending the Shangani to anyone.
In summary, the pre trip planning was easy as pie, the transfer smooth and the day surpassed all our expectations, it was awesome! Thank you so much, Graeme & Melanie
The two days on the Shangani were the ultimate experience! What a yacht, what lovely people! Our expectations were exceeded, all our dreams came real! I hardly find words to describe what we had. The food was fantastic; it was unbelievable what we had on the table! The service was amazing too; obliging, always friendly, always happy and attentive. We experienced lonesome islands, danced on white beaches, drank cooled beer, bathed in the warm ocean and in the fresh pool, enjoyed massages or we just relaxed with nice music.
The luxury 70 foot catamaran yacht Shangani is moored in the Boat Lagoon on the East coast of Phuket, and charters out of Phuket, into Phang Nga Bay, with all it's spectacular limestone scenery, to Krabi, and south to the Phi Phi Islands and beyond. Also on the west coast to the Similan Islands.
Visit Shangani's Secret Beach for an amazing dining experience, BBQs set up with tables under the trees, table lining and cutlery, for up to 60!. Wonderful for small groups too. Beach games, inflatable water park and floating jacuzzis
