Oh what a day out! A close friend of ours, Terry, decided to give us a surprise and a treat! He has a friend Phil from Australia who has taken enormous pride in cultivating a very wonderful experience. Most importantly he treats the staff on board as his own and there is great mutual respect between everyone. That spills out with a passion that delights both the novice explorer and the mature mariner. With equally gracious merit. There are I believe three Pattaya based yachts, all owned and run by 'X2 Cross To Yachting'. The one we were entertained on was the 53 foot 'Shiraz' - 12 knot cruising, air-con saloon and cabin with full sun covered areas and 2 cabins, 2 toilets and kitchen. It is suitable for up to a party of 20 persons. We in fact numbered 9 in total. Then there was the captain and a wonderful staff of 4 who attended our every need, plus Phil who ensures customer service remains at the fore. From the moment we arrived at the enormous Ocean Marina Yacht Club we were waited on hand and foot! Whisked off in a large golfing buggy to the yacht itself, the fun began in earnest. We stepped aboard at about 11am and were completely pampered. All our bits and bobs (large ice coolers and copious alcohol beverages and other such prerequisites had been unloaded from the boot of our cars and whisked away separately to the yacht) were handled by the crew as we stepped aboard. At midday we departed off to a wonderful 'desert' island. Meanwhile the cabin crew plied us with just so much delicious finger food - it just never stopped.Should you dare to lift a finger to replenish your glass with wine or whatever, a member of staff would appear and insist on taking over. I learnt later that these crew members are permanent to this yacht which explained why they were just so 'top notch.' Nothing and I mean nothing was too much trouble for them. We arrived at the island of Ko Kram Noi and the excellent rib which was towed by the yacht then availed itself to take anyone who cared to pop across to the island for a swim. Only two persons actually did this although the rib could easily take 10 or more people at a time. I guess too many of us noted the magical island was bereft of a bar! Never mind. The food and beverages had been stowed on the tender. Towels too and plenty of napkins with ice a plenty. Those who left were treated to a trip around the Island at very close range before they alighted onto the sands and then to lie beneath the Pandoman trees that gave the shade from a rather hot sun. I should add we took on board with us two Thai friends from Esan who work in a local Hotel. They had never been abroad a luxury yacht in their lives and their photo experiences have ben posted on Facebook. They were treated with equal respect by Phil and his crew even though in some places like Phuket Esan people are treated as fourth world creatures. Nothing more and nothing less. Not here at all. We arrived back at the Marina around 6pm after having had much more than a superb day out. We noticed some very large catamarans returning in to the marina, full of party goers/tourists - maybe 100 or more per vessel. Oh dear me - not for us. To be quite truthful we felt like royalty on our vessel - but then no surprise there as indeed we had been treated as royalty by the crew. There again exceptional high standards mean exceptional customer care. I commend this cruise company for going the extra mile or three and for charging rates that are fully commensurate with the high bar they have set themselves. A very welcoming and economical experience and not one to be missed by family and friends visiting Pattaya. From what I can gather this enterprise is all part of Phil' son Anthony who is a serial entrepreneur and a passionate builder of businesses. He founded the first X2 hotel in Kui Buri Thailand in 2007 and from there he has grown the brand and chain to the largest design hotel in in Asia. So it seems that dad is indeed helping out his son! What a great day and please do not ask me the cost, as it was a special treat from our good friend Terry. All I can say is that it is from all accounts 'affordable' and something that is not to be missed. In our case we shall definitely return to the seas on board this splendid yacht and with hopefully the same splendid crew!
