Sailing on Kao Phetploy
Kao Phetploy (9 jewels) is a Celestial 48, a classic cruising yacht with blue water capabilities. A roomy centre-cockpit cutter with 2 double cabins, 2 bathrooms, and up to 6 berths in the open plan saloon area, she is an ideal family boat, safe and stable with an easy motion under sail in a seaway. Her shallow draft allows her to access some of the lovely shallower anchorages in the Gulf of Thailand and we can anchor relatively close to the beach. We offer short cruises or day/overnight yacht trips as part of an activity holiday.
