Life time experience because of unspoiled nature and wonderful region.
The Mergui archipelago or Myeik is fantastic. Anchoring the boat every night near another beautiful beach is like paradise. Paul and Debbie the owners (both very surefooted) of the boat with their 2 children 6 and 10 tried to do their best to give us a great time. The crew was nice and young but we didn’t feel good vibes between them and the owners. Paul is a very good guide for snorkeling etc. and hiking off the beaten track. The food was ok but nothing special. Strange to eat so often deepfried fish and meat as there were so many local fisherboats around. The days that Paul catched a fish we were more than happy. Luckily Paul is an engineer because he had a lot of problems with the generator. He spent hours in the machinery room to resolve the problem. The last day the boat brought us back to Kaitung, 2 hours later then planned and we nearly missed our plane in Phuket.

Fabulous sailing trip to Komodo
This is a fantastic boat. We sailed for four nights around the Komodo national park with four children aged 7-14, and couldn't recommend it more highly. It is such a joy to get so far away from everyone else, and there are wonderful things to see. The boat is fabulous - very luxurious (they even have a washing machine and dryer aboard) and in immaculate condition. It is very spacious and the kids had no problem keeping themselves entertained. Food was excellent and crew really friendly and nice. Paul the captain is very experienced and knows the area extremely very well so we found lots of beautiful places to anchor with almost noone else around. Highlights were great snorkelling (manta rays, turtles, fabulous corals and more reef fishes than we could imagine) and seeing Komodo dragons fighting on the beaches.

Far surpassed high expectations.!!!!!
We almost booked with Burma Boating, supposedly the primary provider in the area. They deceitfully misled and screwed us around. Luckily at the last minute we found ASIA and enjoyed an "over the top" experience. Our biggest mistake was that we only booked 4 nights on the boat. Paul, the captain, exudes competence. He is an engineer who built a "dream" yacht with as much attention to detail and excellence as I have seen. I make that evaluation as a mechanical engineer who has build a sizable company and developed communities of excellence. Paul is as good a host and competent captain as I have encountered and he is the unchallenged expert in the area.. He is the one who literally wrote the yachting guide for the area. Ask for the book. My friends and I have done a lot of high end adventure travel around the world. I say that only to add credibility to the previous comments.

Unbelievable experience!
My family and I spent christmas aboard SY Asia in Burma and it really could not have been any dreamier! We hardly saw another tourist boat and felt completely disconnected from the outside world-such a treat. Paul and Debbie were excellent, lovely people but also very professional. We ate like kings and queens and enjoyed some great sailing. Thanks so much to all the crew for honestly the best holiday we'll ever go on!

Out of this world.
We have been on fabulous family sailing holidays over the past few years but this one was out of this world - the boat, the sailing area, the crew, everything was perfect. The boat is beautifully laid out with lovely cabins, unlimited water in the shower (a rare treat) and plenty of space to relax both inside and out. We were made to feel instantly at home and confident that Paul and Debbie were running a very safe and knowledgable operation. We sailed around the Megui Archipelago in Burma for a week and only saw one other boat. We moored off fabulous white sandy beaches, swam in crystal clear water, snorkelled, fished, hiked and were shown hidden rivers, traditional villages and amazing wildlife by Paul whose enthusiasm was contagious and depth of knowledge incdedible. Meanwhile Debbie was creating the most delicious and bountiful meals - fresh muffins, tasty curries, bbqed lobster, and one lunch an incredible sashimi with the tuna that we had just caught off the back of the boat. Nothing was too much trouble - a cold gin and tonic whilst lazing in the hammock or climbing up the mast in the bosun chair to take a family photo for us. We had so much fun and cant wait to book another trip. If you are looking for a rare and memorable sailing trip aboard a fabulous and professional boat I cannot recommend SY Asia more highly.

Amazing experience!
This was our fourth trip on SY Asia and if you are thinking of booking a trip - do it! I can promise you, you will have no regrets. We have been on the yacht to Indonesia twice, Myanmar and this last one was to the Andaman Islands, all of these trips were fantastic in their own way. Deserted beaches, fantastic snorkelling and diving, amazing hikes and adventures with Paul. The yacht is beautifully designed, the accomodations are 5 star and the food is amazing. We spent most of our yacht time on the top deck in the open air around the tables either relaxing with a book, eating the wonderful meals provided are just hanging out with a glass of wine and taking in the beautiful scenery. Paul and Debbie are fantastic hosts who attend to your every need. They are extremely knowledge about all the local places that they travel to and are so interesting to talk to. I highly reccomend going on a charter with Paul and Debbie on S Y Asia.

From the moment the water taxi brought us alongside to when we bid a sad farewell, our experience and enjoyment on board Asia knew no bounds. The cabin accommodation is carefully designed so there is no chance of "cabin envy" and the rest of the yacht is perfectly configured. The crew were the greatest company and Paul gave us enormous confidence with his extensive knowledge of the Burmese Archipelago which is essential in the absence of any accurate charts. Debbie had the galley and most other aspects of the running of the boat under perfect control and we could never ask for more. We found exclusive anchorages every night and , in spite of her heavy displacement, we sailed most satisfactorily every day. We could not recommend SY Asia and her lovely crew more highly.

Once in a Lifetime Trip, you have to take a trip on SY Asia
What an incredible trip. SY Asia was beyond all expectations. As we stepped aboard we could not believe this was really ours to enjoy. The yacht is huge, and so well laid out, that it just flows, at anchor or sailing between islands (the most beautiful sailing in the world) moving around the yacht is super easy and relaxing. My wife loved the cabin layout (me, i loved how clean the engine room was) and the overall comfort level of the yacht. We were both blown away by the meals, we thought being on a boat would mean some basic food, but wow were we wrong. Breakfast, Lunch and dinner were all 5 star plus. The days we caught fish fish, it went from our pole to the table and we enjoyed the freshest meal I have ever had. Captains Paul and Debbie were outstanding, their local knowledge, ocean knowledge and even plant and animal knowledge surpassed all expectations. Paul took us on incredible outings to local villages, hikes in the most remote places, and of course snorkeling, diving, fishing and general site seeing. Can't say enough great things about the trip. The area was stunning, we explored/wandered huge beaches with not another human to be seen. Sunsets were the best I have ever seen. Booking another trip for a Indonesia trip now....

Great for exploring, beautiful beaches, no other people, good snorkelling and diving and nomadic sea gypsies which add an interesting cultural experience. Seas are calm and flat which make for idealic sailing. The weather is tropical, hot and sunny with wonderfully warm and crystal clear waters for swimming...
