We’d really recommend simpsons to anyone wanting to charter in Thailand. Very professional / organised team who planned everything well in advance so we could leave within minutes of arriving with a fully stocked boat (thank you Oh) The team on the boat were also fantastic.. excellent skipper Mia who knew the area really well and tweaked itinerary to meet our desire to stay away from tourist hotspots! Nong was a highly creative cook producing utterly delicious Thai food (or whatever we wanted!) Fantastic cruising area with dramatic scenery. Our only disappointment was quantity of rubbish / plastic on beaches and sad to see coral dying / destroyed in many areas. We were there during monsoon (July / august) so had a mix of weather.

Me and my friends spent 2 weeks onboard lagoon 40. For my friends it was the first experience on a sailboat. And everyone was absolutely happy.
I was the only one qualified skipper and I used to do everything myself. My friends only helped me with the mainsail and the anchor.
The boat is very nice and comfortable for the skipper. The autopilot and the chart plotter arr placed behind the steering wheel. All the lines and winches are also here and you can do everything by yourself. The main winch is electric, so all the work is just having fun. The automatic jib helps you to make the turn with one hand only. The other hand is to hold beer!))
The other nice things like air conditioning, electric head pumps and the water maker are so good for the people who used for the high level hotels, that you can go really long distances without any feeling of discomfort.
Summary is t was the best boat I had ever rented for bareboat charter.
And I recommend the company and this boat to everyone who wants to visit the Thailand Islands in the best conditions.
Special thanks to Sten van Aardt for being on-line 24/7 for the phone assistance and helping in marina maneuvering.

After experiencing such a fantastic time on board Blue moon back in November for a 50th birthday celebration we decided to book again for new year!
We spent 4 days and 3 nights sailing around the
Andaman sea on the beautiful catamaran Blue moon visiting amazing beaches and quiet spots that were picked by the extremly knowledgable Captain Yim.
We visited Phangna bay, Phi phi and Racha islands amongst others.
What really made the trip special for us apart from the amazing places and beautiful boat were the crew.
Captain Yim and Chef Nong made both trips truly wonderful with their friendly personalities, amazing cooking skills and local knowledge combined with general niceness. Captain Yim taught the children to fish and after catching several Tuna, chef Nong made sashimi which was fantastic.They were amazing with the children and the entire family felt very comfortable and safe with them looking after us.
We cannot speak highly enough of them..
Boarding and briefing was done very efficiently and professionally by Craig from Simpson yacht charter who also gave us great local tips.
After a fantastic trip in November, the team at Simpson surpassed themselves so much so this time that we are planning to return again later in the year for a longer trip to Penang and Singapore.
Wonderful experience all round which we would highly recommend to anyone looking for a holiday of a lifetime.
10/10.

Dear Maneerat, Thank you very much indeed for such wonderful comments. We always strive for perfection and with the difficulties of this past year such praise makes all the hard work more than worth it. Both the base team and the on-board crew look forwards to hosting you for another custom and unforgettable experience here in the Andaman. Best regards and a happy new year. The Simpson Yacht Charter Team.

We had a magical week sailing the beautiful waters of PhangNa Bay. Simpson Marine did a fantastic job with the boat and supported us all through the week. The boat was the best condition and best-equipped We had ever been on.
Hats off to Craig Wright, Colin and Khun Oh and the whole team for giving us the holiday of a lifetime!
Thank you
Simon

Sailing trip, condition of the boot, food offering and service was outstanding. But what really made the difference was the crew. Thank you very much to Captain Ning and the fantastic service/cooking team Nong and Te! In Summary it was the best sailing trip we had so far.
Thank you very much for the great package!

Thank you for your very generous compliments and your praises have been passed on to our team. I know the crew on board Blue Moon enjoyed their charter with you too. I would like to thank you for deciding to take a third crew member due to your party size being 10, this makes a huge difference to the level of service we can provide. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your experience with Simpson Yacht Charter and hope to see you in the not too distant future. Warmest Regards, Barnaby Joe Turner-Mendis Charter Sales Manager

Thank you for chartering with Simpson Yacht Charter and for your kind words. We hope to see you again and perhaps for a longer charter so that you can experience all the Andaman sea has to offer. For overnight trips we can plan an itinerary that takes you to destinations that are only accessible by yacht and away from all of the busy tourist spots. Warmest Regards, Barnaby Joe Turner-Mendis (Barney) Simpson Yacht Charter

The check in was all right with the exception of providing us with false information about reading of a depth sounder. We were told that the gauge read from the keel and in fact it added additional 60 cm to the actual depth. As a result we rund aground near Krabi still "having" 60 cm f water under the keel. Ruder and keels of our catamaran were scratched and needed some re-laminating. We reported it to Simpson Yacht Charter and were told that they would immediately take the bot out of water, asses the damages and of course charge us with the costs. Their estimate was "maximum 1 500 Euro". I offered to pay that amount on the spot but was told that it could be less and they would give me the quotation within 2 days. In fact it took them almost 2 month to come with the final costs which raised to almost 4 500 Euro and included a lot of additional, unnecessary charges. I had to send them numerous messages to get any info on the progress of the work and had even problems in getting invoice of the work done. We learnt that they were ina process of transferring the boat to another operator and in my opinion we paid for all malfunctions of the boat prior to our charter.
Summing up: the boat was comfortable and in a relatively good shape, the company staff was very nice but not very effective, they way the repairs were dealt with was totally unacceptable.

Dear Antoni, Thank you for taking the time to write this feedback, which is absolutely invaluable to us. Again as mentioned in our previous correspondences, we sincerely apologize for the less than satisfactory experience you had. Such experience is never something we strive in our operation to deliver to our customers. The Lagoon 450F (2014, 4 cabins) that you chartered had been in our fleet for overall management and operation from 2015 – August 2018, with many happy charter clients in the past. In May 2018, the owner informed us that he had decided to move the boat to another operators that his personal friend is working at; and he sent a written promise to us in honoring all last charter sold by us before the boat was to be change management hands, so that we would agree to let him move the boat out of our fleet before our contractual notification time. By the time of your charter commence, the yacht had already been in the new operator’s care since 1st Sept. 2018; they are responsible for the maintenance of the yacht. Simpson Yacht Charter were acting as a Charter Agent for your booking and tried everything in our power to represent you being our client and protect your best interests during and after the charter. After the unfortunate grounding incident, which you were very forthcoming about and for which we are very grateful for, we contacted the new operator who were the only party authorized to fix the yacht. Therefore, the estimated repair cost difference truly occurred because we as the Charter Agent had no control over the actual suppliers’ bills from the new operator. The yacht had to be hauled out and both rudders were removed and rebuilt due to the damage from the grounding, both keels also required re-laminating. The new operator was trying to extort money for additional jobs such as prop wraps, which is why the case took longer than normal to close. Simpson Yacht Charter did not want our client to bear the costs for damage that you absolutely had not caused. Our Yacht Care Manager reviewed the initial quotes provided by the new operator and disputed the costs as they were astronomical (the new operator originally was requesting over 7,500 Euro in damages and without our intervention they certainly would have taken more than your whole security deposit). I agree we were very slow in updating you on the progress but behind the scenes we were having a long dispute with the new operator and were trying to fight against their unreasonably inflated quotes. We certainly wouldn’t like to bother you with such unpleasant background stories, but if you would ever allow time for us, we could share with you all our correspondence with this new operator, so that you can have a full picture of the whole lengthy negotiation process. Our whole team will certainly learn from this experience and will never work with this other operator, this owner and his boat anymore. We still remain our principal in always putting our clients first. In fact, ever since your charter, all remaining charters that were booked on this Lagoon 450F have been passed on to the new operator, to avoid complications and minimize the potential for disruptions to customers holiday’s. We hope given the opportunity again, we can prove to you the uniqueness of a true Simpson Yacht Charter Holiday’s. Sincerely yours, Simpson Yacht Charter Team

Excellent set up in Phuket and the Yacht was presented really well. We supposed atnhow new it looked so has been well maintained. It was our first charter experience in Phuket as a group of friends and we loved it. The base manager gave us a good plan of where to go which he followed. It was a bareboat Charter and we rarely saw another boat so a very different experience to the crorwded bays of the med. will definitely do again this year.
