Siam Sailing is an adventure sailing charter company and has a fleet of five catamaran yachts. We offer primarily bare boat, but also skippered and crewed sailing charters. Siam Sailing's sailing area is the entire west coast of Thailand and the off-lying islands. Our yachts are custom built Polynesian inspired Wharram catamarans: 1 x Hitia 24ft day sailer/camping cat for 2 pers. 2 x Tiki 30ft pocket ocean cruiser for up to 4 pers and 2 x Tiki 38ft cruising yacht for 6-7 pers. Wharrams are quick, comfortable and yet rugged. Besides brilliant for sailing in open water they are, because they can readily take the ground , ideal to explore the myriad of creeks, rivers, hidden an hidden bays which can be found all along the coast. So they can take you well off the beaten track to new and exciting places where others can't go. We have some fourteen years of sailing and charter experience in Thailand.

It has taken me ages to write this review because I don't know where to start. It was quite simply the best adventure I have ever had.

My friends and I rented the Tiki 30 for 8 nights. Makz provided the boat, a cell phone, and charts. Overall it was enjoyable and an experience of a lifetime. I'm so glad we had the opportunity to sail across the Andaman Sea! If you rent make sure you bring lots of water and go both north and south. Unfortunately,... More

had great fun on Makz catamaran. Simple and elegant , easy to sail and drawing very little water , these vessels are ideal for inshore adventuring and fun evenings with good friends. Makz is a most helpful host and amiable companion. He is a motor cyclist of note and an expert in Blackadder, if you ask him he will come... More

I have sailed on a Tiki 38 five times including, Nov and Jan 2011, Nov 2012, Jan 2014 and Nov 2015 with friends and family. Each trip has had its own excitement, be it on the west coast up towards Burma and out to the clear waters of the Similan & Surin Islands National Park, or down towards Langkawi over... More

We had the most wonderful holiday sailing on Makz's Tiki 38. The islands south of Phuket are truly magical and some can only be visited on a sailing boat. Highly recommended!!!

We have just returned from a 3-weeks family sailing trip on the Tiki 30 catamaran. It was an overall enjoyable experience both with the catamaran and the sailing area. There are still relatively few yachts around and having one for yourself means you can avoid the tourist crowds from the speedboats and have the tropical paradise for yourself. There are... More

We chartered a tiki 30 for six nights so we could explore independently. After meeting up with Makz we were given very detailed charts and an excellent book giving information on best places to moor. Makz gave a suggested itinerary which was really helpful but you have freedom to do your own thing. The catamaran was easy to sail and... More

We never really thought we could afford to charter a live aboard sailing boat as part of our Honeymoon but then we found Siam Sailing. We had the boat for 5 days and really crammed a lot in during that time. The shallow draft of the Tiki 30 meant we could go into the rivers and to places where most... More

My husband and I have just returned from 10 days on a Tiki 30. It was a fantastic experience. I'm a paraplegic and usually get bored and grumpy on holiday. Not this time. We lived like locals, bought fish from fisherman, swam and dived and basked in the warmth. Sleeping on deck was so easy for me and so wonderful... More
