Charter Yacht of the Month – MIA KAI

Modern, stylish and meticulously maintained, 30m MIA KAI is one of the few Thai flagged yachts legally available to charter in the Phuket region. An exclusive opportunity to discover the bounteous treasures of South East Asia on this outstanding yacht is not something to be missed.

Built by Bilgin Yachts in 2007, MIA KAI underwent an extensive refit in 2015/16 that included installation of new teak decks, full engine servicing, generator re-build plus a new air conditioning system. Since then she has been extremely well maintained by her crew and presents in sparkling condition. An added bonus, for daytime cruising amongst the picture-perfect islands of Thailand, MIA KAI can take 23 guests, whilst offering comfortable accommodation for up to eight in four staterooms sleeping on board. Guests can enjoy luxurious and spacious surroundings, with two full-beam master staterooms and two twin staterooms perfect for mixed groups and multi-generational families.

Her interior design is light and bright with natural décor, having undergone a comprehensive interior refit in 2017. Boasting an immaculate and airy saloon, with dining area serviced by a full bar galley area, the large windows afford superb views out over the water. The hub of the yacht is found on the popular sun deck complete with a sizeable al fresco dining area, jacuzzi and bar, plus a high-tech sound system. This has proved wonderful for entertaining or simply relaxing, with ambient music and a chilled drink. MIA KAI also has multiple seating areas both inside and out across her superb decks, with shaded and sun lounging areas on the sun deck and reclining zone on the bow.

Under the direction of British Captain, Christopher Green, communication is never a problem as he speaks fluent Thai, having lived nearby with his family for over 10 years. Highly qualified, his knowledge of the best local cruising areas, away from the main crowds, is better than anyone. A published author on Asian cruising routes, he has traversed over 80,000 sea miles incorporating Asia, the Mediterranean and Caribbean during his career. With a private chef on board, trained at fabulous Michelin star restaurant PRU in Phuket, cuisine is diverse, delicious and exquisitely presented. Guests can enjoy a blend of beautiful local ingredients in a unique fusion of texture and flavour. All hailing from Thailand, the professional crew of six under Captain Chris’s command are keen to ensure guests continually receive the utmost in service and their time on board is unforgettable.

Delivering a magical charter experience, Thailand is bursting with rich and fascinating culture, some of the world’s finest beaches and a population that are keen to invite guests to enjoy their wonderful kingdom. Stepping on board guests can sit back, relax and relish cruising the crystalline waters between partially submerged limestone peaks and white-sand beaches fringed by lush vegetation. Most islands are ringed by dazzling coral reefs, teeming with marine life and, thanks to a great selection of water sport toys, guests can explore above and below the surface with ease. Those looking to explore the regional delights of Thailand whilst enjoying superb cuisine, being pampered and soaking up the stunning scenery will not be disappointed. With something for everyone to try, there are local activities galore for adults and children alike, whilst those seeking relaxation can visit luxurious spas for complete indulgence. Ranging from an ethical elephant sanctuary offering an immersive land-based experience to action packed sea kayaking expeditions around lofty karsts, the list of attractions is extensive.

Recently on display at the inaugural Thailand Charter Week show in Phuket, MIA KAI received countless glowing accolades for her immaculate condition and the hospitality of her experienced captain and crew, with visitors stating this is undoubtedly the very best yacht of her size to charter in the region.

With some availability over the Christmas/New Year period and beyond, this successful yacht charters at US$79,000 per week high season and US$69,000 per week low season it is time to cruise Thailand in style.
