News of a new Marina in South East Asia

October 1, 2013 Destination Thailand No Comments Email Email

Seventy Five Wet Berths for up to 90ft Boats.It is a blight of many cities that while you can more or less drive around, it is almost impossible to find a place to park. Now, something similar is happening at sea, more boats and fewer berths on offer. 
After years of rising yacht sales, the most coveted marinas in the Mediterranean, Caribbean and parts of Asia are now telling owners there’s no room to dock, leaving some boat captains literally high and dry.

However at least there is some good news from Thailand, with the official opening of the Siam Royal View’s marina located on the tropical island of Koh Chang.70 Dry Berths in Koh Chang

Siam Royal View is just a short one hour flight or just four hours by car Southeast of Bangkok. Here they can accommodate wet berths for up to 75 boats up to 90 ft. long, plus a further 70-80 boats, up to 40 ft. long in their new dry dock.

Roland Steiner, one of the development owners said,” The largest boat we have received so far was 72 feet. However at high tide we can handle up to 90ft, and our concrete pier can even handle super yachts well over 100ft.”

‘Apart from the world’s shortage of reliable berths, this state of the art Thai marina is wonderfully situated on the Gulf of Thailand, with over 50 islands to visit with some of the best snorkeling and diving to be found anywhere’, concluded Steiner.

With larger yachts are being forced to moor in many bays elsewhere, another problem has been insurance.  Insurers won’t touch a boat that’s tethered to a mooring in a bay, worried that a typhoon could blow it out to sea or damage it. At Siam Royal View all boats are securely moored, with electricity and water provided on each pier.

Siam Royal View Marina is part of real estate development which was named “Best Villa Development on Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard’ by the Thai Property Awards.

Luxury Beachside Villas at Siam Royal View Koh ChangYachtsmen and their guests can sleep on their vessels in the marina or boat owners can purchase a holiday home with a private mooring right outside their residence in the development’s ‘Canal Village’. The development also boasts a superb Marina Pub, a beach club restaurant, luxury infinity swimming pools, a nine hole golf course and four beautiful private beaches.

Part of the marina is a Marina bar and function rooms with various entertainment such as minigolf, snooker, table football, darts.

Located near the ferry terminals, visitors to the island are welcome to book a number of boat trips from Siam Royal View. With so many islands to visit in the Koh Chang archipelago, here is the ideal option to enjoy some beautiful marine scenery and to marvel at the sea life around Koh Chang.

All the resort owners have built their own homes at the Koh Chang devlopment and Roland Stiener created his own 3 bed villa overlooking the bay.

“Since we built our villa, we have invited prospective owners to view and have sold four of the 30 remaining large beachside plots as a result in the past few months, ‘ said Stiener.
