Imagine cruising around Kawthoung, Myanmar! Charter a 51 ft Lagoon 500 "Meltemi" Cruising Catamaran for up to 8 people. Rates as low as $2,670 USD per night. Meltemi is named after a wind in the Mediterranean Sea. Meltemi is our first catamaran: a French-built Lagoon 500, one of the most successful yachts ever designed for high-end charter.

The spacious owner's suite in the starboard hull has its own couch area and a large bathroom (or head, as they are called on boats).

We organize sailing holidays in Burma (Myanmar), Andaman Islands (India) and Anambas Islands (Indonesia). You can do the sailing yourself or we can do it for you. You can go for 5 days or 5 weeks. And you can chill on empty beaches, drink at hand, or go race the dolphins. It’s your choice and it’s easy with us. We are a group of passionate sailors who were spellbound when we first sailed into Myanmar's waters.We discovered pristine islands, beautiful waters, and welcoming people. Right there and then, we decided to share these wonders. Between May and September, after the sailing season in Myanmar, we cruise along the Spice Route from Phuket to Borneo.
