Koh Samui on The Aello: High Performance in A New Destination

When you’re cruising on sailing yachts, it’s not about getting there as quickly as you can; the journey is half of the pleasure. This is especially true if you’ve chartered the Aello, our 540E Monohull by German master boat builders Hanse Yachts.

Hanse sailing yachts are famed for their high-performance capabilities and spacious design. The Aello is no exception. Her ample deck allows up to 11 guests for day cruises and its three double bedrooms means 6 can comfortably stay overnight on longer journeys. Outdoors, the expansive decks are ideal for relaxing with friends, soaking up the sun and exploring the delights of Koh Samui and beyond.

Koh Samui is widely regarded as one of the worlds natural wonders and there is no better way to explore her remote and hidden spots than by boat. Let’s
explore some of the highlights available to you when you charter in the region:

Koh Samui and beyond…

Ang Thong Marine Park is an adventurer’s paradise of fascinating limestone atolls, breath-taking geography and clear azure waters. Swim, kayak and climb to your heart’s content, taking in the cerulean seas, dramatic caves and untouched nature.

The Namuang Waterfalls is a natural beauty that’s easily accessible and well worth a visit. The cool and beautiful surroundings make it the ideal spot for a picnic or just to relax in the natural pools.

Koh Tao means turtle island and while it looks like a giant turtle it’s also a fitting name as the diving here is world-class. The dramatic coral landscapes are home to turtles, stingrays, reef sharks, barracudas and if you are lucky, whale sharks. Popular dive sites include the underwater sculptures of Ocean Utopia, the wreck of HTMS Sattakut, Lighthouse Bay, Japanese Gardens, Chumphon Pinnacles and many more. Of course, the beaches as with anywhere in the region are picture perfect.

Koh Phangan is obviously well known for their full moon parties, but the island really has a lot more to offer. The beaches are truly stunning. Bottle Beach or Hat Khuat is recognisable for its traditional long-tail boats and certainly competes for the title of Thailand’s most beautiful beach. Haad Salad and Had Yao deliver the postcard images of hammocks and palm trees away from the hustle and bustle of the party scene.

So, if you feel like savouring sunshine in style, aboard a classic yacht while embracing the undeniable beauty of the Gulf of Thailand, this could be the adventure for you.
