Sailing Holidays

We pride ourselves on our excellent fresh food onboard. A mix of international and local cuisine is prepared for you and you can specify your requirements beforehand. Good quality linen is supplied for your cabins.

Our current sailing area is from Indonesia to Myanmar and includes Sumatra, Singapore, Borneo, Langkwi, Penang and Malacca in Malaysia as well as Phuket, Phi Phi, and the Similans in Thailand, the Andaman Islands and the Mergui Archipeligo in Myanmar.

Bareboat Charters

For insurance purposes we do not actually bare boat charter. However, our prices are so competative that you will have a hard time geting a decent bareboat for less. Meniscus is more homely than any bareboat so why not let us take care of you and remove all the hassle? Your Yacht Charter includes Crew and the boat is fully provisioned for you. You can still plan, navigate and crew to your hearts content but let us look after you, show you the best sights and anchorages as well as give you some extra tuition as you go. With us onboard you can have a real holiday, save the stress and probably even save money.
