The Independence

Welcome aboard the Independence. Designed by Dough Peterson, this 52-foot sail sport legend one of the largest sailing yacht in Koh Samui. Her interior is made up of solid Burmese teak wood, Italian Alcantara fabric cushions and a galley with a black granite top. She is a luxury experience second to none with her 3 spacious cabins complete with double beds, and a fully equipped salon for couples, families, and groups of friends. Independence is rigged to go around the world so you can rest comfortably knowing that she will safely bring her guests around Koh Samui and its stunning surrounding islands such as the Ang Thong National Marine Park, Koh Phagnan and Koh Tao. Whether you choose a sunset cruise, a full day trip, or an overnight charter, you are assured to have the most extraordinary experience you fancy; this is your indulgent opportunity to relax and unwind, and to be lavished aboard the luxurious Independence out on the open seas complete with 5 star treatment and authentic Italian cuisine.

The Skipper Luca

Meet Captain Luca from Venice, Italy; a city known for its food culture and hospitality. Luca’s true love is sailing, and producing fine food is a close second. He has over twenty-five years of experience under sails. Luca is our Senior Skipper with knowledge of Mama’s secret recipes and is well known on Samui for having the most exclusive Italian dishes. This authentic food is cooked for his guests aboard the Independence. It is for this authentic Italian taste and unparalleled hospitality and luxury that some people claim the Independence to be the “5-Star Bed ad Breakfast of the Gulf of Thailand.”

Luca guarantees your needs are met while you relax in the cool breeze and enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Koh Samui archipelago and beyond. Luca has extensive knowledge of the region and excellent sailing skills to ensure your safety and peace of mind. On our trips we combine fun and speed with luxury and spacious comfort. We have English and Italian speaking crew.

The Packages & Itinerary

Our crewed private charter offers unique tailor-made packages, based on the needs and requests of our valued customers over the many years of sailing together. We will make an itinerary based on your special individual needs and accommodate for whatever luxury you fancy. Your tour can include a half day or a full day, overnight or holiday packages.

We highly recommend a romantic sunset yacht charter. We have a reputation among honeymooners and romantics that this is the most intimate and luxurious way to experience the magic of the open seas. The most booked is the Happy Birthday package with complimentary Italian cake, Prosecco and yacht decorations. Couples swoon and groups of friends rave and sigh as the sun sets and the boat floats and the sky is afire with orange and purple. There is no sunset like there is in the Gulf of Thailand.

We also highlight Ang Thong National Park as a peak destination. The sailing conditions are particularly superb here, with warm waters, natural tropical beaches, and over forty islands included in the archipelago. We recommend exploring this pristine paradise with one of our luxury yachts on a private tour. Here you can relax among the tranquil bays or if you opt for more adventure, you can snorkel, dive, and kayak through the towering limestone cliffs of the Marine Park. There is delicious local Thai cuisine available here, served in a range from beach style to more sophisticated restaurants.

You may fantasize about exploring the natural cliffs of Thailand underwater, and if that is the case then we recommend Koh Tao as the perfect diving trip. With visibility of up to thirty meters you will witness the extraordinary sea life and breathtaking underwater world, including the frequently spotted whale shark.
