About Siam Sailing
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.

I went on the amazing Hitia 26, the smallest of their Wharram designed catamarans that are rented out. The Wharram’s are excellent sea boats and well suited to sailing from Phuket since they can be easily beached on the many islands in the Phang Nga Bay. If not fully beached, I found the tide sufficiently gentle to swim ashore, with due caution. This boat has no cabin and a deck tent is used for sleeping, which adds to the adventure because you feel closer to the elements. I left the tent open each end at night and felt the cooler night breezes and looked out at the stars. On one night there was very heavy rain and wind and the tent coped with this, being reliable and strong. The Hitia 26 is great for sailing, the twin hulls tracking smoothly and effortlessly, a slight weather helm counteracted by using a rope system to fix the course. The boat is based on an ancient Polynesian design, which meant I felt a connection with seafarers the past, when boating did not involve the inevitable noise and bustle of using an engine in order to make passages. Instead, I relaxed into the rhythm of the sea and wind, made easy by the predictable wind directions and strengths, mostly at this time of year from the north east. I anchored in bays with sandy beaches and on the side of islands that provided shelter from the prevailing wind and waves. Makz, the owner of Siam Sailing, is a brilliant enthusiast, He built and now maintains and rents out his four Wharram Catamarans, also with the help of his employee called ‘Popeye,’ possibly eponymously. As a team I found them so helpful, Makz providing an eloquent and succinct introduction concerning how to set up and sail the Hitia 26, which made it all very easy, his dry sense of humour amusing. He also was very attentive and provides a telephone for daily ‘check ins’ and an iPad for navigation. Given I did not bring a radio, this seems an appropriate way of ensuring communication to deal with any problems along the way, which in my case were none. The Hitia 26 is fairly primitive in terms of comforts but sophisticated and clever as a sailing boat and you can marvel at the formula that James Wharram hit upon about 50 years ago when he designed this class of boat. The spirit of adventure was his vision and the Wharram boats deliver.

Had an incredible time on a tiki 38. 8 day bareboat charter. Max is a unique and great guy. A relaxed experience in a beautiful place. Loved the wharram catamaran. Swim ladder is the best.

We chartered the Hitia 26 for a short 3 day trip. We had an awesome experience. Macz is such a cool guy that knows his stuff and he gave us a very good briefing of places to explore in our limited time and we weren't disappointed. The boat was in very good working order, bear in mind that the Hitia is for the adventurous, no toilet, no shelter so be ready for some sun exposure. We used the genaker a lot and that kept us moving at a very decent pace despite the light winds; advantages of light cats. We are looking forward for our next charter, definitely need to do it again.

We have taken Tiki 30 for a five day charter. I have particularly liked Makz's (the owner) sense of humour while he was handing the boat over to us as well as his precise information and instructions. The boat's sailing capabilities were maybe even better. Tablet with charts and plenty of data was just an added bonus. Makz was online 24/5 and helped us solve the one or two issues we encountered. Can only recommend and we will sure be back.
