SILENT 55 available for Charter at Mergui Archipelago/Myanmar
There’s no better way to explore one of the last untouched spots on earth than with a “SILENT”, solar-powered and eco-friendly luxury catamaran.
From mid of December 2018 a brand new solar-powered SILENT 55 luxury catamaran is available for charter in the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar. Traveling there is quite easy: In less than an hour you can fly from Bangkok three times per day to Ranong, which is right at the boarder to Myanmar and in sight from Kawthaung where the SILENT 55 is located. Just across from the Thai border, the archipelago opened to foreigners as recently as the late 1990s. With only a few of the 800 islands sparsely populated, and several dozen visitors to the entire area each month, the Mergui Archipelago remains one of the planet’s most unspoiled destinations.
We will pick you up at the airport and before you know it you will enjoy a welcome drink on your boat with the German Captain, an experienced mariner who has explored the Mergui Archipelago for many years. He will make sure that the whole cruise will happen in best safety and comfort conditions, while our crew, composed of a qualified cook and bartender as well as a deckhand, will provide five star meals, cocktails as well as room service and cleaning.
Up to six guests enjoy three luxury rooms, each equipped with air conditioning and spacious private bathrooms. A vast panoramic salon of 40m² will welcome the passengers for meals and recreation. A flybridge, sea-beds on trampolines and sofas near bow and stern await you for chilling and sunbathing outside.
The SILENT 55 is an oceangoing catamaran that meets the highest ship building standards, respects the environment and at the same time makes no compromises regarding luxury cruising. She is powered with solar energy, two silent 135 kW motors will drive the catamaran at a max speed of 12 knots as quietly as a sailboat but without dependent on wind. Our SILENT 55 is the first of her kind traveling the asian seas und sets new standards regarding eco-friendly cruising.
Virtually unknown to the outside world, the Mergui Archipelago is located in Myanmar’s south. Think white beaches lined with palm trees and dense jungle. Think swimming in azure waters amongst colourful reef fish, spotting corals and collecting seashells. Cross tropical islands, hike through valleys and up hills, walk along kilometres of blissful beaches where your footprints are the only ones to be seen, kayak through enchanted mangroves, swim, snorkel and go fishing.
The Mergui Archipelago is teeming with wildlife – above and below the waterline. Picture eagles circling above, gibbons and monitor lizards eyeing you from the thickets, while a sundowner is being mixed for you on board the yacht. According to the New York Times the Mergui Archipelago is one of the top ten destinations every person should have visited once in their lifetime!
And best of all: you have this entire experience to yourself. You can sail for days on end and meet not a soul but the friendly fisherman in a dugout canoe.SILENT-CHARTER operates regular 6-day cruises in the Mergui Archipelago, join us and discover Myanmar’s forgotten paradise.
