We spent à fabulous week on Capricorn, a Turkish bilt ketch of 30 metres. Our trip took us to the islands of Surin via the Similan islands.A very Nice and comfortable way to discover this beautiful islands of the beaten track.
First of all and most importantly as always on a boat a great and imaginative Thai chef, then a very Nice and discret thaï staff. All commanded by a friendly and professional french captain.
It is your choice to be active or rest on this boat, as there are all the usal sea toys and a all day round access to diving with your own charming belgian dive-master.

Everything went out very well on our 3 days.Your team is a good e professional team.
I think that it was a good idea to go to Krabi.The other alternative was quite far,and I must confess that after two entire days of yacht,on the third we were quite tired to go so far.
Regarding Koh Samui,We prefer a motor yacht.
Now that I have your data,Whenever a friend of my go to Puket,Or even in a future trip tothe area,I will refer your name to them,or in my case call you.

Equipement of the boat
comments Comfortable cabins, very reliable engine, low fuel consumption, lots of reserve water and fuel supplied
comments The foresail furling was broken and could not be used. We had to return to Marina and lost 2 days while waiting for repair. But we received a refund of the charter fee for 2 days. So it was ok in the end.

Just a quick message to tell you that we enjoyed a lot the 3 days we spent on Tony's boat. He brought us to nice places meeting our expectations (white sand beaches, a typical Thai village and not crowded places to rest). On top of that Onyx boat is comfortable and offers spaces for every need. Bok, Tony’s wife, is a wonderful cook and we appreciated a lot every meal she prepared.
Thanks a lot,
We had a great time partly because of the yacht itself but also, and in equal measure, because of John and his team. The whole crew were particularly pleasant
and ever attentive. They also went to great lengths to plan things to optimize our trip. At the same time they were flexible and proactive in suggesting
changes when these seemed advisable.
As for the yacht itself it is very clean and comfortable. It also has charm, that particular ingredient which is hard to describe but very much a differentiating factor.
There were two points which could do with being improved: the need for a larger shaded area on the rear deck and more efficient air con in the two large bedrooms. John was already aware of these points and is taking action on them.
A further point which is made in anticipation. Because the yacht is made of old timber and operates in a hot humid climate it will need to be very carefully maintained if it is to appeal to the top end of the market which it is, quite rightly targeting. This is not to suggest that it looks tired today, merely that this is something to watch.
Thank you for everything you did in arranging the charter,
Fuchs 14.11.2009 - 21.11.2009
At the base: Friendliness - perfect Competence - good Surrounding - perfect Check-in/check-out - perfect

We had a great time (of course!) and was really very impressed with how smooth all the arrangements were.
Asia Marine were very professional and very helpful and I will gladly charter with them again.
The boat was great and I would love to take her out again.
Thanks a lot,
“Nous voici de retour de Thaïlande...
La "révolution" (en fait, une simple manifestation d'un groupuscule autour du palais gouvernemental) ne nous a absolument pas dérangés. Pour tout dire, nous n'avons appris cette manifestation que par les SMS affolés des familles et amis restés en France!
Nous avons eu un accueil agréable de la part de Asia Marine. Le bateau était en très bon état et nous n'avons pas eu de problèmes à part un manque de vent et une chaleur tropicale (40° à l'ombre, eau à 35° !!!). La marina est correcte avec sanitaires et un restaurant, mais elle est un peu éloignée (pas de commerces à proximité), ce qui ne nous a pas géné outre mesure!
Je tiens à vous remercier pour votre disponibilité et votre efficacité.

Dear Caroline, dear Mo, dear Michel,
We safely returned to Shanghai and still remember the great time we have had on the Hanse 315 last week. What a great experience and vacation!
Dear Caroline: Thank you very much for arranging all this for us after our initial contact in Shanghai. I guess we will meet again in a couple of months at the China International Boat Show in Shanghai. I will also try to arrange to have put a link to your company on the SBYC website.
Dear Michel: Thank you - among many things - for your great support in the skipper briefing and during the two telephone calls I gave to you.
We certainly enjoyed all your support and advice and it is magnificent to see how much you put into this job. We could see that you are an experienced skipper! Sorry, for bothering you on our first night where you had to leave the party early as some people have locked the boat and we needed your help.
Thank you for the great advice to go to "Mama and Papa" for dinner on the last evening.
Dear Mo: Thank you for your great support in organising this trip. It was really generous from your side that we could already sleep on the boat starting on Friday night when we arrived.
PS: Maybe next time we will go with a catamaran ...
29 Dec to 01Jan 2007
We all had a great time. The crew on the boat are very professional, the itinerary worked out well, the activities were great especially for the kids and the food and massages were enjoyed by all.

I finally spoke to Louise yesterday. After the yacht trip she traveled on to Viet Nam and Cambodia and just got home. She had absolutely nothing negative to say at all.? She loved the crew!? Loved the food! The boat was immaculate. She also said that the captain made everything happen that they wanted (which I would think was no small task). She also complemented your professionalism and assurance that first day when she was told all the things she could not do. Everyone did a fabulous job and thank you again!

We were very happy with our skipper. He showed us very beautiful spots and make sure we were comfortable at all times - super friendly too.
John Griffith || Kinara 26 July - 1 August
Very good service indeed, preparation was excellent, best of any previous yacht hire.
I recommended checking yacht rigging, most halyard/stay are very loose when sailing, having a lot of movement. Thank you very much to your staff.
Day Trip 22 July 2006
Food is top class. Good job on keeping the beer cold!
It is Sunday morning and we’ve just arrived in Koh Samui without any serious problem...
Everything went just fine and we got here after exactly 16 days from Chalong Bay.
We stopped two days in Langkawi, two more days in Penang and two days again in Singapore so we've spent 10 days at sea.
Thank you again for your professionalism and the great attention you gave to Kaïsso Kaïa to get such a result even though I am not always an easy customer -)

I don't know, how I can say thank you for all this, what you and all others have shown us from your wonderful Thailand! Kindliness, culture, nature and of course your sailing area!
Our sailing trip on Monday was great! The change between sun and rain was very interested and during the storm, when I saw your face, I believe you enjoy it also a little bit!
I send you pictures as soon as possible and till then I only can say thank you for all!
Thankfully and all best wishes to Caroline and all other from Asia Marine

Boat performed without mechanic incident.

Thank you to you and your staff for the wonderful holiday we had recently on the yacht Raew Raew. Everything ran superbly and our skipper Gee could not have been more accommodating and with his knowledge of the area we were able to do some wonderful snorkelling and visit some great islands. Our cook, Peer( not sure of the spelling!) served up the most delicious meals.
None of our party have had much to do with yachts so it was a new experience for most and it turned out to be a real highlight. All in all we had a great holiday and I could reccommend it to anyone. Thank you again for being so helpful
All the best
20 February - 1 March 2006
Captain Kee was really, really good!
14-21 March 2006
General organization was really excellent. The cook was fantastic. However
I would suggest to sail a bit more, compared to the use of the engine.
THANKS A LOT FOR THOSE 3 DAYS!!
All our group would like to thank you for the great 3 days they spent on Raew Raew.
Crew was top, route perfect, weather beautiful
18-31 March 2006
Very enjoyed trip. The meals were excellent, a very good cook. Interesting sites with kind explanations because we don't speak English very well.
Thank you for the captain and his helps. Beautiful always.
22-24 February 2006

To the management and staff:
We had the pleasure to live and sail on HANUMAN from 8 to 18 November. The weather was not always perfect, but perfect and excellent was the boat and the preparation and services of TML around the boat. Thats why we want to say Thank you to everybody of a very good team who was engaged. Thank you Vincent for your time in Bangkok in January, Thank you Arun for your patience before and after our trip, and Thank you to all the others who we did not meet personally.
Best wishes to you all!

Dear Mr Tabuteau,
Just a brief note to express my satisfaction and enjoyment when I recently chartered your vessel Prowler 9000. The booking and handling arrangements were excellent and were handled very well by Mr Arun Sukbunphan.
However, I must draw to your attention the very professional and extremely helpful attitude of your boat Skipper Mr Wiswt Nlongdiao. This man is exceptionally gifted and has such a willing and helpful nature he is a joy to have on board the boat.
As you well know, companies are only as good as their staff, in Mr Nlongdiao, in my opinion, you have an exceptionally gifted and outstanding asset that should be nurtured and encouraged in every way, with staff like that you cannot fail.
I do hope you will take the time to pass on my good wishes to Mr Nlongdiao and to tell him of this letter praising his efforts on our behalf.
