For a large group of family and friends, the Shangani Luxury Yacht offers the ultimate luxury in sailing and cruising in the beautiful waters of the Andaman Sea or the surrounding islands of Phuket.
The 70-foot, 3-decked Catamaran is a pleasing sight on the waters of Thailand’s largest island, offering a luxurious way for guests to explore hidden beaches, discover Phang Nga Bay, the Phi Phi Islands, as well as the Similan Islands, all up close in their majestic glory.
The yacht was assembled in a short 5 years, with the hull built in Australia and fitted out in Phuket by Thai craftsmen. Specializing in large group cruises, the catamaran can accommodate a total of 60 people for a day cruise, while its 6 cabins can accommodate a group of 16 people for an overnight cruise.
The upper deck is specifically used for entertainment. There is a large Jacuzzi spa pool, a bar, seating for sundowners, an area for spa services and treatments, wireless internet, and a place for live music performances.
The yacht also features a fully-fitted galley, where everything needed for scrumptious meals are provided, as well as an area for BBQ’s.
A mid deck saloon is the place to be for anyone who wants to take a rest from the heat of the tropical sun and just enjoy the padded seats and the cool air conditioning. There are comfy sofas, a dining table, and panoramic views can be seen from the glass French windows.
Watersport activities are also on offer at the yacht, where equipment such as kayaks and stand up paddle boards are available. A “water park” can also be set up when the yacht is on anchor, where a water trampoline and an enormous inflatable slide create the perfect way for both kids and adults to have unforgettable fun in the water.
The Shangani, which is named after a famous river in Zimbabwe – the owner’s homeland, features an impressive number of cabins. There are 2 master suites and 4 family rooms, which are all equipped with TV, DVD player, safe, and shower.
The master suites are simply stunning with their ensuite rain shower, separate toilet, wash basin, and door leading to the stern. The suites sleep 2 adults. The family rooms feature double beds and a bunk bed while the smaller cabins feature twin single beds.
There is a total of 5 crew members who have their own sleeping quarters on the yacht. The captain, first officer, deck officer, chef, and hostess are full-time mainstays of the yacht, while a spa masseuse and hostess assistant are availed for large groups. The spa masseuse joins the crew for all overnight cruises while the assistant is only available for large day cruises.
For pre and post wedding events, as well as corporate team outings, and special celebrations, the Shangani Luxury Yacht is the perfect way to explore the islands of Phuket with the people who matter most. (www.tigermarinecharter.com)
