Charter the SY Cheng I Sao for a day of sailing or sunset cruise

Named after a famous Chinese pirate of the early 19th century, Cheng I Sao is a stylish and solid ship to cruise the waters around Phuket Island.

Designed after Cheng I Sao’s sailing yachts – she commanded a fleet of 300 similar vessels – this two-masted pirate ship with a length of 34m and a width of over 8m can comfortably accommodate up to 85 passengers for day trips to exotic destinations such as Koh Rang Yai, Koh Hae, Koh Racha Yai, and other islands lying off Phuket’s coasts.

Cheng I Sao gives you the opportunity to spend a great day out at sea; she certainly has the ability to accommodate many types of cruises:

  • Private or join-in Sunset Dinner cruises
  • Private Pirate- or bachelor party cruises
  • Private Day trips to islands around Phuket

The captain and its crew of 11 sailors will be dressed as pirates, and are in charge of the passengers’ well-being and entertainment. All of them have a long experience at sea, and Cheng I Sao is provided with all the safety equipments necessary. We also have several pirate sets of clothes for men and ladies on board, for you to dress up like Captain Jack Sparrow and take back home photos and unforgettable memories!

A trip on board Cheng I Sao is the promise of an outstanding time filled with fun, adventures in the tropics, hearty food, and fresh drinks.
