Phuket Boat Lagoon crosses water to add moorings in Krabi

Phuket, Thailand: As Phuket Boat Lagoon continues to be almost always full to capacity, its owners have been looking across the water to Krabi to increase the number of yacht berths that they can offer.

And it seems that their plans are well advanced, as they have just announced that phase one of their Krabi Boat Lagoon is due to be completed in November this year.

The new marina is located in the Baan Taling Chan area of the Southern Thai province of Krabi.

Phase one covers an area of forty two rai (6.72 hectares) and provides ninety wet berths, seventy hard stands and six undercover berths. The facility can take vessels of up to twenty metres in length.

“[Yacht] Berths will be offered initially to existing owners in Phuket and an on-site sales office in Krabi will open next month,” said Sriya Yongsakul, sales and marketing director for Krabi Boat Lagoon.

The marina’s facilities will include a fuel dock, a boat service centre, twenty four hour security and a travel lift which can support yachts of up to fifty tonnes.

The total area of land allocated for the Krabi Boat Lagoon project is one hundred and ten rai (17.6 hectares).

Phuket Boat Lagoon was the island’s first marina complex.

The brain-child of Khun Kanit Yongsakul, it was officially opened in 1994 and is situated at the end of a two mile creek called Klong Tha Rua on the East Coast of Phuket in Southern Thailand.

The circular marina provides moorings for vessels up to 42.7 metres long.

Most sailors consider the complex to be on a par with other leading marinas across the globe.

Facilities include a fuel dock, three travel lifts with a capacity of up to sixty tons, a large concrete work area and hard-standing for up to eighty craft, dry stack storage to accommodate twenty speedboats, one hundred and seventy wet berths all with power and water, a concrete boat ramp, hot showers and changing room facilities.

Phuket Boat Lagoon and its neighbour, Royal Phuket Marina, are twenty kilometres from Phuket International Airport and eight kilometres from Phuket Town.
