About Gulf Charters Thailand

Gulf Charters Thailand has been operating from its HQ base in Ocean Marina just south of Pattaya in the Gulf of Thailand since 2001. It operates four core businesses; Yacht Charter, Sailing School, Yacht Brokerage and Yacht Deliveries across south East Asia. We operate and manage a fleet of Superyachts, keel boats and catamarans that vary from 32ft to 110 ft in length. The company has expanded its operations to include bases in the Koh Chang archipelago and in 2009 has added a base in Koh Samui. We were the first charter operator in the Gulf of Thailand and are now the largest independent charter operator in the Gulf of Thailand.

Gulf Charters has been the leading developer of yacht charter in the Gulf of Thailand and has taken a very active role in the development of many aspects of the sport of yachting in the Gulf of Thailand including sponsoring and providing assistance for the monthly yacht racing weekends at Ocean marina and also the annual Top of the Gulf Sailing Regatta where more than 200 boats of all sizes compete for five days every May. Now we are bringing to market the ultimate in luxury with the first fleet of Superyachts operating in the Gulf of Thailand.

Charter Bases


Chartering a yacht is probably not the first thing that springs to mind when thinking of Pattaya, long know for the nightlife that stemmed from the RR day of the Vietnam war. However, the waters off Pattaya deliver good solid sailing conditions all year round with plenty of deserted tropical bays to drop anchor for the night.

Koh Chang

The Ko Chang archipelago is a must see cruising ground, it's 52 islands combine a balmy tropical climate with the lovely temperament of the Thai people, deserted long white sandy palm tree lined beaches, secluded anchorages and a scattering of restaurants and resorts offering up the very best that the Thai cuisine has to offer.

Koh Samui

Koh Samui is Thailand's self-styled Boutique Island, with it's 'coconut' feel, it offers an abundance of high end spa's, restaurants and every imaginable luxury. In spit of the fact that Samui is now almost entirely dedicated to the task of pampering the weary traveler the value of the surrounding area as a yacht cruising ground remains little known fact to the yacht chartering community.
