BURGESS LINES UP AN UNPRECEDENTED CHARTER FLEET IN ASIA THIS WINTER

Following recent changes in Thai superyacht charter regulations, Burgess is proud to offer more superyachts for charter in South East Asia than any other brokerage company.

Our experienced team of charter brokers are offering an exceptional line-up of seven charter yachts, ranging from 32 metres to 73 metres, available to charter in Thailand and the Maldives this winter season.

In a conscious effort to facilitate superyacht charter in South East Asia, the Thai government recently announced regulatory changes which will open its waters to foreign-flagged yachts. These measures will allow charters to start and finish in Thailand (rather than embarking or disembarking from Malaysia) and aim to put Phuket firmly on the yachting map. It is hoped that Thailand's exceptional cruising grounds will become a world-class yachting destination.

South East Asia is famed for its natural beauty, from iconic limestone karsts and spectacular island cliffs to crystal clear waters and white sand beaches in secluded bays, miles from civilisation. This area offers hugely diverse cruising destinations and activities including superb diving and fishing, six-star resorts and spas, vibrant nightlife and fabulous fresh seafood, all bathed in the fascinating cultures of Asia.
