The Bay of Phuket onboard Lady Azul

Thailand’s exotic beauty and allure have long been a main draw for the yachting elite. Home to gorgeous natural landscapes, a rich and fascinating history, and dazzling architecture, the undisputed pearl of the country remains Phuket. The largest island, Phuket, is a dream charter yacht destination, with more than 30 pristine sandy white beaches lining its coastline. Offering something for everyone, from its famous beaches to the luxurious eco-resorts and the wild nightlife of Patong, a yacht charter is the perfect way to explore all this island has. 

Lady Azul, a 39.4-meter superyacht from Heesen, is the vessel of choice for your Phuket yacht charter. Delivered to her owner in 2001, she has undergone an extensive total refit in 2019 to include the latest navigation systems, state of the art entertainment systems next to a total interior and exterior refurbishment. Her timeless exterior design by Omega is expertly matched by her welcoming and contemporary interiors. Designed with complete comfort and luxury in mind, her ample amenities include a new, custom-netted lap pool and extended beach club.

Able to comfortably accommodate up to ten overnight guests in five staterooms, this includes a full-beam master suite on the main deck, two full-beam VIP staterooms, and two twin staterooms on the lower deck, with deluxe ensuite bathrooms. 

With white-gloved service, the captain and crew of Lady Azul will see to your and your guests’ every need throughout your journey through Phuket. Soak up some local culture by having them arrange a private tour of Chin Pracha House, an elegant Sino-colonial mansion located in Old Phuket Town. Explore some of the most important Buddhist temples, such as Wat Chaitharam and Wat Phra Thong, which houses a half-buried golden Buddha, to learn more about the island’s religion or visit some of the colorful museums that trace the region’s history. Synonymous with night markets, Phuket truly comes to life at night with bright markets that sell everything from food and spices to clothes and electronics. A wonderful way to immerse yourself with locals and experience the culture, it’s also the place to taste the more hedonistic side of the island, especially if you’re by Sin City.

Those who prefer a more tranquil getaway can simply turn their gaze to the water. With hundreds of untouched islands in the area, there are plenty of secluded beaches, rubber plantations, and forests to discover. Located in the Andaman Sea, Phuket is a true underwater sanctuary, with stunning coral reefs teeming with an abundance of marine life. Ideal for divers of all levels, head to Shark point to swim among Leopard or Bamboo sharks.
