This review has been a long time coming - however it's here!!
We are a family of 4 - 2 kids 11 & 8 when we sailed. We had 5 nights sailing out of Phuket at the beginning of the season. We had an amazing quality family experience - we all felt very well catered for (Dieter has good wine selection capability!) with fantastic food cooked onboard, great conversations. Our kids totally loved the opportunity just to hang out and enjoyed everything Ay cooked. All in all it was a certainly an amazing experience and we can't wait to board again sometime soon.
Thank you so much Dieter & Ay

The week on the Mahayana with Steve and his crew was the last part of our trip of 8 months. And it was a great 'closing' trip.
Steve was really amazing with the kids, they still talk about him :). Endless energy and always in for some fun. We really recommend traveling with the Mahayana and Steve. Beautiful scenery and great company!!

It was a great 10-days sail over Mergui archipelago islands in Burma. G thanks to captain Colin and his charming Oiy! Her food is something. Swift is very comfortable catamaran. If you like virgin places, good food and reliable cap - "better call Colin" :-)

We had a wonderful day trip on S/Y Mahayana. Steve, Capt Lee and Kaew made our day trip perfect. The boat is well maintained and clean. The food was also good especially our special dietary requirement was met well. In general, we were satisfied with Steve's hospitality and would like to sail again with Steve's S/Y Mahayana.

My partner and I spent 8 days on the catamaran Nakamal in February around the Similan and Surin islands on a private charter and it was truly lovely. Our skipper Dieter and his wife, Ay were very welcoming, knowledgeable and gracious hosts. Ay cooked the most delicious meals every lunch and dinner and Dieter always knew the best spot to moor the yacht for stunning sunsets and where and when to snorkel. They, together with the boat lad Ngay, were attentive to our needs and yet also gave us plenty of privacy - a difficult balance - which they achieved with ease. Our trip on Nakamal was the highlight of our holiday in Thailand. I even learned to paddle board thanks to Dieter and Ay. If you're thinking of having a holiday in Thailand then do consider chartering the Nakamal. It was amazing and I hope I get the chance to do it again one day.
