Dallinghoo Yacht

An exquisite gaff-rigged topsail schooner exploring Southeast Asia's most sought after destinations.

Overview

Built in South Africa in the 1990s, the 100-foot Dallinghoo is an exquisitely restored traditional gaff-rigged topsail schooner that blends the classic design and nostalgia of a tall ship with all the comforts of a modern yacht. Accommodating up to eight guests in four air-conditioned cabins, she is available for charter in some of Southeast Asia’s most sought after locations.

Life On Board

Dallinghoo’s nautical interiors are characterized by light painted wood with varnished teak paneling and hardwood trims, while her floors are comprised of varnished hardwood throughout. The boat’s indoor areas include the kitchen-galley, a saloon and dining area equipped with a large table with a u-shaped sofa and chairs, and a large TV and DVD player. There is also an alfresco dining area on the deck and plenty of open-air lounging areas to sunbathe or relax in the shade of a full awning.

Dallinghoo’s professional, knowledgeable crew of six includes a captain, cruise director and a private onboard chef. An expert in both western and Asian cuisine, she serves up delicious fusion dishes and barbequed delights using produce sourced from the local markets, as well as freshly caught fish and seafood, to fuel your adventures and delight your tastebuds. A dive master and a masseuse are available on request to ensure the highest possible level of service.

For Your Pleasure

The Dallinghoo Yacht is jam-packed with water toys that you’ll be free to use, including a powerful RIB that will transport you to white sand beaches, four kayaks, two stand-up paddle boards, and much more. For sailing enthusiasts, there’s a vintage gaff-rigged sailing dinghy on board, which has been lovingly restored and offers a peaceful way of exploring the bays and lagoons in which Dallinghoo anchors. There is also fishing gear, eight sets of scuba diving gear for certified divers, and two petrol driven portable diving air compressors.

From November to April, Dallinghoo is available for charter around Phuket in Thailand and Langkawi in Malaysia. Sometimes the Myanmar Mergui Archipelago and India’s remote Andaman Islands are also options. From May until October, Dallinghoo cruises Borneo, Tioman Island in Malaysia, and the pristine and breathtakingly beautiful Anambas Islands of Indonesia, which are still so secluded that sailing here is like Paradise Found.

Sample Itinerary

Embarkation

PM: The Yacht Haven Marina is a 15 minute drive from Phuket International Airport and you will be arriving onboard Schooner Dallinghoo in the afternoon.

After a short familiarization and safety briefing, your first day will bring you east or north towards the splendor of Phang Nga Bay. The dramatic high-rising limestone cliffs provide a stunning start to your charter holiday before you pass James Bond Island and Koh Panyee. 

James Bond Island was made famous by appearing in the James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun. We suggest that you visit this at the start or end of the day in high season, since many speedboats from Phuket or the mainland will bring tourists there in the middle of the day. 

Koh Panyee is a fisherman's village built on stilts, and underneath a giant rock face. This is a fascinating place to have lunch and buy local handicrafts.

Phang Nga Bay

AM: Day 2 will bring you to the north of Phang Nga Bay where you will find hundreds of small islands, caves, bays and inlets, ideal for exploring by kayak of small dinghy. In fact, many of the best places to visit can only be reached this way. Some of the most spectacular caves can be found on Koh Hong, and they are best explored when the tide is low.

PM: Sail slowly past the island of Khao Khien and see the ancient paintings of boats and animals on the rock walls.

AM: Heading south, the third day of your charter will bring you towards Krabi and the beach at Ao Nang Bay. Many resorts, shops, restaurants and nightlife spots line the shores along this bay. Even more secluded just to the south is the world famous Railay Beach, protected from road access by rock walls either side.

PM: More kayaking to be done, or even a little rock climbing? And, unlike the waters in the very north of Phang Nga Bay, the waters here are further south and offer very good diving and snorkeling opportunities.

Dallinghoo will spend two days in these islands, Thailand's most southern and boarding onto Malaysia - last but not least as these are some of Thailand's best islands and least known.

PM: The group consists of 51 islands and islets and was originally home to Malaysian Sea Gypsy settlements. Wild boars, civet cats, hornbills, monitor lizards, python and cobras are commonly spotted in the park. You will anchor in the sheltered crystal clear waters between Koh Rawi and Koh Adang, here we will spend the night in the true tropical paradise.
